    Hi All,

    I am about to buy a black s-line grill for my Audi A3 but have been told by the breakers yard that it may not fit my car?

    Is this true?

    The grill i'm looking at is here

    Appreciate your help :yes:

    No it won't fit. You will have a gap.

    Yep, you need an S3 bumper but good luck finding one and for a good price. They are expensive because there aren't many around.

    Hold on... The title says a S3 grill but your first post says s-line grill... Which is it?
    a s-line grill fits directly onto a normal a3 bumper... The S3 grill fits in the bumper too but you will have an inch gap at the bottom as the s3 grill is shorter. This is why we say get an S3 bumper as well so that it looks better
