    Facelift Grill for my 1997 B5

    Hi, can someone tell me whether or not the facelift grill is a direct replacement. I have a standard grill on my car at the moment, and would like to fit a facelift one as it looks a little better, and for the 29 they are selling them for on eurocarparts website I thought It might be worth a go. However the guy on the phone said that this would not fit my car.

    Any ideas ?

    Thanks for your help, as always much appreciated.

    i've just baught one from a chap on here and afaik they are a straight swap, although i've not got it nor tried to fit it yet.

    People fit RS4 grilles to other models all the time, and the RS4 is a facelift car.
