    S4 grilles don't have mesh. Do you mean an RS4 style grille?

    You can get some cheap black aluminium mesh off eBay, but it's a much smaller mesh than the RS4 style and pretty poor quality. I've fitted it to my S4 bumper to match my RS4 grille but will be replacing it at some point with the 'RS4 style ABS plastic mesh' that sells on eBay. It's very expensive, but I don't trust this cheap eBay aluminium mesh to stop large stones from destroying my intercoolers and radiator.

    Hello mate. I have done exactly the same to my bumper with ABS RS4 plastic. First thing I did was use a glue gun too. Few months later when it got really cold the glue became brittle and the mesh became unsecure. So I had the bumper off, binned the oe framing/surrounds from the 3 holes in the bumper, primed the surfaces on the back of the bumper the ABS mesh was going to sit flush on and secured the mesh with black, quality polyurethane adhesive sealant. The idea being the poly is semi flexible to a degree and has excellent bonding qualities. Solid as a rock now. Fitted a LCR spoiler at the same time to save taking the bumper off at a later date........That aside, whatever your considering bonding it with make sure you do it somewhere thats at least warm room temperature. Adhesives don't set/take ages to set when it bloody freezing. Would post a pic of mine here but since the forum has been upgraded/updated It won't let me upload anything from photobucket or my computer........Good luck buddy.
