You fitted yours yet mate?
Good timing haha
You posted that while I was typing.
Looks so much better on the RS3 grill but does it need lowered on the left?
Yeah it is slightly p*ssed but I was really rushing to get it on, easily fixed.
I think against the RS3 grill that's the best I've seen.
Really good mate. Is your grill from Xenon UK? If so what's the quality like?
No I bought it via eBay from some Chinese dude who I paid too much for - especially as there was a group buy not long after which brodster started (which is xenonz grilles) I think the reviews are pretty positive and for £250 it makes a hell of a difference visually!
Yeah it was me that was doing the group buy for the RS3 grill but now can supply ALL RS grills anytime anyone wants one. And just as a heads up the pre-facelift RS3 grill is nearing completion.......watch this space guys.
My badge arrived today , thanks Jay :icon_thumright:
I would have one but i have a diesel
I was tempted by one for my 8 which is a diesel and a quattro but maybe next time.
Quattro diesel is best of both worlds I think.
Brodster, If anything happens with a RS style grill for the A8s, let me know. I know of a couple of A8 owners that's interested in such a grill. We are thinking of trying out a D4 grill if one comes up at a good price.
mines not even a quattro diesel
For you then.

Ohh you so funnaayy ..
look its not funny
Mine arrived on Tuesday I think it was - only just managed to get on the forums.
Echoing what others have said - it isnt the best quality, would have expected to pay around £20 or so for it.
Taking nothing away from Jay for sorting it though, nice one fella
Cheers bud! You'll have to post a pic if and when it's on? I've removed mine again as I think between the grille and splitter may suit it better but I don't have my car at the moment to do it
Been up to Durham today an it's still on my car now to just get all the 10 million flies off...
Not really my cup of tea if i'm honest
But Fairplay to everyone involved for sorting it!!!!!
Mines survived so far, done about 250 miles just not kooking forward to ckeaning it tomorrow
136 mph and its still on, I agree with S3 AEX the flies are going to be a challenge lol oh and it was private land
It's great having a private runway so close to home isn't
I wouldnt call the M1 private lol (Joke)
Got mine on the other day, went with black zipties (although it'd be almost impossible to do this neatly without the bumper off which is what I did as I was doing something else at the same time), its been pressure washed twice and driven a few hundred miles, no issues at all.
I just wondered how everyone's badges are holding up? Wondered if there'd been any casualties
Mines still in one piece.
Still in one piece. Although haven't had it all week. Needs a good clean
Only done 200 odd miles with mine on, but I've jet washed it once,and it's still there! Mine is held on with cable ties mind.
Still there with the tiny tiny screws
Mines screwed on to.
To say it's had a few fast runs is putting it mild
Yeah mine is doing great, had plenty of comments on it (well the 3 women at work who have ibis white A3's - mix of s-line and black editions) so if I get in at the right time I park it in a line with them to upset them because they can't get an S3 on the lease scheme
Done > 1000 miles, pressure washed and its held on with cable ties
yep still attached
So having picked up my new car a couple of weeks ago now I finally got round to adding this:
I know it may split opinion, but I like it, as it is quite subtle down there.Black zip ties being the method of attachment to th =e three vertical grille bars.
Here is a before for comparison:
Very nice mate. Thumbs up! Same method as me, and mines still on so should last you a while.
Mines died and gone to heaven.
The final moments of my S3!
Mine is still hanging in there .
Nearly 12 months on plus winter driving, how many are still in place and would those who bought one still say there worth the money, personally I think they luck the mutts nuts on the RS3 grill
Still going strong with mine too. However thinking recently about removing it and adding the new grille xenonz UK has with the built in Quattro as per the new RS3 8V - check it out
