And I thought the RS4 grill was not supposed to fit our bumper!

    Seems this guy has made it work! Where there's a will there's a way!! Need to get my one sorted now, awaiting call back from parts dept... Strange... as I have been debating buying one and getting the mesh out, cutting to fit the OG A3 grill, but this would really be cool if it fits, with a little modding (grill RRP is circa £135 btw). I think he's mutilated some RS4 fog surrounds for their mesh too... I likeee!

    You can clearly see the gap which is what we've been saying for ages, I personally cant stand the gap there & with the already existing gaps manufacturers give us on new cars even supercars I wouldnt want a bigger one, gap that is

    Shhhhhhhhhhhh dont say RS3 aloud or Jamie will be along & all hell will break

    His car is nicely modded. But Nigel is right, that gap doesn't look OEM, it looks POO

    How come the car in the pic you posted has this gap? That looks like an S-line with a standard S-line grill??:think:

    Hey thats what I thought, but thats so mate, seen number of slines like this tbh, imagine that gap now take a closer look at that RS grill now & tell me you wouldnt get hacked of everytime looking at your car with that on, I know it would annoy the feck out of me.

    That's weird about the S-line's and that gap....
    Re- the RS4 grill... What about on an pre 09' S3 bumper as these have smaller grills anyway, maybe it would fit then?

    Cheers marksport! He's done quite a bit to it for sure...

    Thanks alot for the close ups of grill etc, what exhaust is that he used?

    NHN I think the RS4 might fit a pre S3 bumper for sure the gap at the top looks roughly the same as the gap that is left at the bottom when fitting an S3 grill on an S-line bumper.

    As seen here...

    The gap at top is bigger & far more noticeable mate, really would be, I've seen a B7 of my mates who did something similar & 1st thing I noticed was the gap & it ruined the whole front of the car cause it really is the 1st thing you see & you cant ignore it either.

    Agreed Nigel. It does ruin it and it doesn't look OEM.

    Must say nice looking A3. The exhausts dont look as bad as i thought they would, but each to there own. Are those MTM alloys? Or am i seeing things? Only thing which Nigel and Nate pointed out is that gap. It would do my heading....Every time i looked at the front of my car. And it pretty clear aswell.
    If there was some way you could sort that out look spot on! I do like the grill a lot mind.
    RS how you getting on with yours?


    Thanks

    So can you order the RS4 grille separately (without the surround)?
    And what about the fog light surround?
    Anyone care to offer part nos/prices?
    Could be a nice little cut'n'shut project...

    RS4 grill inc matt chrome surround - £171 (inc vat) No discount ;)
    Here's a bargain... RS4 mesh fog surrounds - £16.60 each!

    maars, I was told that you cannot order the mesh separately, tried when I was doing my grill. If you could though I would order the RS6 mesh as the number plate holder is much cooler on that!

    No part no's.... sorry dude. If you call with an RS4 reg (from somewhere like Audi's own website... cough cough) then Audi, I am sure, will provide you with them.

    BTW maars, do you have any pics of your car posted anywhere.... I'd like a closer look at your wheels.
