    Ah, I thought it was a black grille, I was in Watford Audi a month or so back and they had a Black Edition S3 in there, I asked the guy how much would the grille be and he said it was about £700.00. I do like it black though, I think once I sell the TVR one could be on the shopping list :yum:

    Bumper can get from a dealer or eBay fella. And the grille you will need an S3 grille and a RS6 grille.

    Can you post or pm me the coding, I have read on loads of threads that the facelift climate unit does not work on our 2005 cars.

    Before I advise of what I know to be 100% correct, what exactly did you set within module 08 Hvac to supposedly get it working, I'm sure I know what you did, which wouldnt make it function properly at all, but I like to hear others adventures so I can add any data to the discussion.

    You need to do coding if you change the climate control I changed mine and worked straight away what do you mean by not functioning properly NHN? And warren had it plugged in no errors from the hvac.
