S3 grille fitted to my S-line facelift
Had my car for 2 months now and couldn't resist doing a couple of mods :laugh:
I always felt the new grille on the facelift looked a bit bland (the standard S-line grille is no longer unique to the S-line). I wasn't overly keen on the black optics grille on a black car as it hides the trapezoid frame and I feel the car loses its identity.
I love the look of the chrome 'S' series grille, I did some research and after searching through several german Audi forums and using an online translator I discovered the new S3 facelift grille is a straight swap for the standard grille :laugh:
I decided to order it ASAP before everyone discovered the mod which normally results in VAG increasing the price.
The S3 badge was removed, I wasn't happy with just gluing the S-line badge on so I machined a special adapter - this converts the slot to accept the OEM S-line badge and allows it to clip in perfectly. I'll add some pics if anyones interested.
The other mod i've done is the RNS-E which is fantastic so i've included a few pics of that.
