    s-line lower front, grilles won't fit???

    Evening guys,

    Just spent today fitting a s-line lower front to my standard bumper, following the thread detailing how to and what to cut etc.....

    The problem I have is the 2 side grilles bought from Audi at the same time wont clip into place?

    It looks like they are too small and have nothing to clip in to...

    Any suggestions?

    Cheers

    You're trying to fit "S-Line grilles" into an S-Line lower valance ...... ?

    Which of these grilles have you got?

    Hi quattrojames,

    I have grilles 4 and 9 from the diagram, I did ask the guys at the dealer to ensure the grilles were correct for the valance.....

    I take it I should have 3 and 8?

    Cheers again

    Steve

    4-9 are the correct grills for the S-Line lower so they should fit. The standard bumper (top part) may not have the locating lug's so you may have to bond them in.

    The S-Line grilles are all the same fit I think, it's just whether they're 'open' or 'closed' design which varies, and that depends on engone/transmission options I think.

    Bugger,

    last thing I wanted to do was bond them in as they need to be removed if you need to change fog light bulbs, or remove the bumper anytime in the future...

    Still seems strange that they dont even look the right size though, seems to be too much of a gap all round compared to the fit of my standard grilles/valance....

    Will try and source an s-line top section to see if that helps....

    Cheers guys

    Send a PM to fourcircle, off the top of my head he is the first person I can think of who fitted an S-Line lower to a standard top bumper and used S-Line fog grilles too.
