    I should still have a black grill from A4 Sline which is damaged in the middle and the frame is ok.
    Will be getting rid of it anyway so if you want it I'm in Milton Keynes.

    Hi 2nd Gear
    Yes thats great,does the frame come off easily,and would you be prepared to post the chrome trim frame or all of the grill ,I can pay you through paypal thats if you have an account with them or bank transfer.(I think it would be alot cheaper than drving down to collect)

    Hi, like I wrote. This grill is black not chrome so it depends if you want to change it for black one.
    To be honest I have no idea if the feame comes off easily because I didnt look at it.
    I will have to look for it in my garage but will be there at the end of next week.

    It does come off quite easy, you just have to be patient and not rush it, just work your way round the grill uncliping it one at a time, took me bout 10 mins to do mine . Ive done it twice since then and i did it a lot quicker.

    My surround on my rs4 grill was chrome , i just wrapped in in black vinyl, its almost an exact match to the car colour and you can hardly tell its been wrapped unless you look really close.also if i ever want the chrome back again i can just peel the wrapping off without the hassle of taking the bumper off etc😄

    You are correct, S-Line/S4/RS4 grille won't fit a DTM.

    Yep, the S-Line grille&surround and the RS4 grille&surround are interchangable. I have an S-Line and wanted to keep he chrome so took off the alu surround from the RS4 grille. It has never been put onto a car so is spotless and it's proper aluminium rather than the chrome covered plastic of the S-Line surround.

    Hi Wrath
    Silly question, but why go to all that effort to remove the proper chrome surround ,so you can keep the old plastic one

    Because my window trim is chrome and looking at pictures where people have used the alu grille trim, it just doesn't look right.

    Hi slepy
    I can't PM you yet (still working on the post count!!) but did you find your old grille surround?
    And as my mum dragged me up right, if Derek doesn't want first dips on it, could you give me a price for it?

    Hope you read this before its gone!
