    To be fair it doesnt look that bad, i have certainly seen worse examples.. take off the badges and the chrome bits and you could have a cheap tidy car.

    That S3 grille fits into that bumper pretty well. Yes there's a gap at the bottom, but being at the bottom its hardly noticable.
    Might get one for my car. :ninja:

    That is shameful.

    A guy in work asked me about my S3 the other day. I told him I don't have an S3. He said he thought that's what the badge on the grill was. It's the standard s-line badge but it made me want to remove it incase people think I'm like that tool in the advert.

    Fella you know aswell as I do, that is considered almost a royalty vehicle compared to some there, take for instance a cab, some have been dropped on there roofs & still driven around shuttling people from place to place, I've seen it with my own eyes lol.

    The amount of Mk1 TTs going around with TTRS badges makes me laugh, now the S3s are doing it with RS3 badges. Am l missing something.

    lol did anyone stop to think maybe the seller has had to put the car back to standard before selling - putting standard alloys etc back on, but maybe couldn't find/ couldnt be bothered to put the grill back to standard - so just left it as a 's3 lookalike'.

    could happen.

    but i doubt it.
