    Hi All
    I have recently inherited a beautiful a4 cab in silver which is on 03 plate.
    The car has only covered 18k in just under 9 years and is mint throughout.
    However I am convinced it will look better with a s4 upper and lower grille without the s4 badge.
    Any opinons on whether I should fo it or not are appreciated.
    Also following questions;

    1. cant find an S4 grille on ebay which is from/for convertible any thoughts where can obtain?
    2. is it a simple changeover has anyone done this?

    many thanks

    As far as I'm aware the lower grille from a saloon/avant won't fit a cab anymore than the top one will. The top is obviously mounted in the bumper on the cab not the bonnet, so I'm not sure how hard it is to remove but someone will know.

    When I've looked in the past all I could find was cab ones!

    top one just unscrews at the top when you open your bonnet and bottom grill just pulls off
