    No it wont fit.

    You have a few other options..

    S-Line Black edition grill
    FK S3 grill
    Oettinger grille

    There is a few mesh grills on ebay also.

    Hi,

    So the 2008/2009 s3 grill won't fit?

    The grills you recommend, do they have to fit a certain year?

    Any suggestions of where I can find these.?

    As JPK says, it won't fit.

    Lots of guys on here buying grilles from FK Automotive, just do a quick search and you'll find plenty of threads with photos etc.

    Sorry Guys, I feel incredibly stupid on these forums. I have owned a two audi TT for around 8 years. I am definately in different water here.

    I have a 2006, S Line, T FSI 2L Petrol. How do I know if its a face lift or not? and whats the whole 8P etc?

    I am a simple man and really just want the same grill I have now, but matt black in the centre and gloss on the out side lip. (not too much to ask - lol)

    yeah I read that - I will make a bold statement here, but all this information over a grill is overwhelming, there is thread after thread.

    whats all this i am hearing about black edition grills? I do not want an after market grill, the one I liked was expensive but an OEM grill.
    I may if I need to, which i really do not want to, it buy a standard black OEM grill and gloss the out side lip.

    Sometimes buddy, you got to do a bit of hunting around and research these things if you want it done properly.

    The Black OEM grilles for your year of car are very hard to find, that's why everyone is going for the non genuine ones.
