    I'm transforming my audi a3 year 2000 to an audi a3 new look, changing side skirts, rear bumpers and front bumpers but i'm stuck of finding the grille. and the grill should be like pictures below

    Im guessing will be a standard facelift A3 grill. This looks like it, counting the slats on the top part of the grill being 14x6 too.

    Interesting project, hope it works out for you.

    the 1st pic, the one you bought looks like the 2nd facelift grill ie 2009 on. I reckon your 2nd pic looks right.

    There has been 3 grill changes - 2003 to 2005 which is the twin grill, then 2006 to 2008 it went to a single grill & 2009 on, they redesigned the grill again.
