    It says the sticks are for pre facelift cars so i doubt it. The grille pic shows the older type grille too.

    I assume they fit pre 08 facelift S line grilles? :confused:

    Hi, can anyone answer this, as i would like to know if a full replacement grill is needed. Looking at these pictures,

    http://uk-audis.net/forums/t/463.aspx

    it seems on the 58+ A3 grill there are 8 vertical lines rather than 7 as shown in Sems pic, or can they be placed anywhere on the grill.

    Well they would be based on the distance seperating them in the image so 7 & 8 probably wouldnt fit, but then again thats why we call it modding so just modify them to fit.

    Nigel, can you do me a favour please. Can you get me the part numbers for me:

    2007 S3:

    bumper headlight washer covers (both)
    Tow eye cover
    fog surrounds (both)

    my ETKA that is installed on my spare PC is the original V7 install and so out of date and while I prob have all the updates it could take me several days nonstop to upgrade LOL

    Lazy fecker, cant I have my tea & italian biscuits in peace oh & by the way:

    2007 S3:

    bumper headlight washer covers - 8P0955275/6 with GRU on end of each maybe for primed

    Tow eye cover - 8P0807241A GRU for PR-2JU which denotes S3 in PR numbers

    fog surrounds (both) - you need 4 parts as there's a grill & backplate aswell, remember if its a sport with the flat fogs you need to buy the sline/s3 ones which are more round which I think know a guy in .de who sells cheap: 8P0807681D/682C grills & 8P0807151A/152A backplates

    If want 7.1 then can send you email with info

    many thanks, i'm guessing my parts man will not be up to yours standard so I will need the info LOL

    moment of weakness, I bought a S3 bumper. Kinda looking dealer for above parts unless you have a good source LOL. I know about the fogs, mine were pre 2005 like yours so are needing changed anyhow. Was thinking about here:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&item=380096643839

    sounds like half price of Audi, dunno about quality/fit though. I reckon I'm going optics grill too.

    will need bonnet too, would have had even more rage today as a stone from a car in front took a chip out of my bonnet if I didnt know I was changing it anyhow :mad:

    :arco: managed to recover most of the info off my old hard drive so I have my pretty up to date ETKA back (726?). I can also confirm it works under windows 7 beta 7000 if anybody is interested LOL.
