    s line grille badge

    Just wondered if anyone has fitted or are thinking of fitting an s line badge to their car's grille. There seems to be plenty on eBay but not sure if they'll look cheap. Any thoughts?

    I'm sticking with the 2 S-Line badges on either wing, I think it'd look a bit strange on the new A3.

    Stick with the way it should look mate. Less is more with the 8V, but that's just my opinion.

    That's sooo last year.

    Audi only keep the front badge for S, RS and Quattro models, and of course the W12.

    Less is more.

    Cracks me up when you see old A4's and A6's, or even TT's with an S-line badge next to the engine spec, when clearly the S-line model wasn't even out when the car was produced.

    I did buy one off ebay but not sure if I will use it yet. I will just have to see what it looks like. I needed something to take my mind off the waiting so I started buying things for the car

    I was going to take my S-line badges off my A1 185 for these...

    Then thought against it.

    Think you're probably right about 'less is more'. It'll already have the Quattro badge so it might look a bit cluttered.

    Fitted s-line badge to the grill looks as it should be there, bought from Amazon for 8 pounds trimmed to fit the contour of the grill and used the clips supplied also.

    Was it tricky to fit?

    Mjcourtney,

    Fitting was okay as the clips are strong and needs a good push to get them in, the grill stays on the car as I did this in about 10 minutes as I had to adapt the badge to fit the position and angle of the grill. I have big hands and fingers which made is ackward to hold but fitting was easy enough.

    exactly the same here...there are several slight variations on this badge on ebay in terms of size, if I buy one will probably go for the smallest version

    Dieseldoug - what is the size of your one?

    Here is mine now I have the sline badge fitted. I think it looks quite good so I am going to keep it there.

    If those clips are metal then yes. It was quite tough to fit. I bought mine from eBay and it was only £5.

    Yes that's the same badge as I fitted, I cut off the angle supports at the side of the badge, and had no issue with the clips.

    We are on, fitted in the dark and the rain with new clips. Mounted on the top of the grille horizontal this time, will see what it looks like in daylight tomorrow.
