    RS4 front grill?!

    Hi all, Im sure you are all going to tell me this can't be done easily! lol Is there a simple way of getting an RS4 style front grill on my S3 8p facelift? have read previous posts and can't really make out what the best way to do it is, someone I spoke to said just to buy the RS4 mesh from audi and then fit it into my grill surround? any brilliant ideas would be great, although I do want to stick with the std front bumper, Thanks.

    The mesh (oval hole thingy) on an RS4 is a piece of moulded plastic much like the one fitted to your car at present. Can they be swopped? Mmmm that's a good question.

    measure one & then if its bigger trim it in to the 8P, anythings possible, just time & effort thats all, needs some strengthening though as cutting whole middle out would make it very flimsy, I'd screw from the sides & sikaflex/epoxy

    lol IIRC it because the S3 bumper is different from the regular 8P.
