    Facelift outer bumper grilles..

    Hello, I remember seeing someone posting about removing the outer grilles - mainly the N/S one to cut some holes between the slats and allow more air to the intercooler.
    Does anyone remember, or were you the one posting? I'd like to do this to mine now it's warmed up..

    OK had a look - just as I pulled up from work. then it started to pi$$ it down, but I see what's what now, I take it the arch liner is from the S4 is slotted and would be the next thing I can see when the grille is removed? Think that's the way forward for now, cheap way of getting more air to the intercooler. Got a list of things I want building up now.

    is there a duct from up underneath which diverts air onto the i/c ?
