    highly unlikely. Side by side, the grills are different shape no?

    8P grill onto a 8V? Maybe a 8V RS3 grill onto a 8V S3?

    That looks awesome, it's one thing I would consider if it became available ..

    I did consider the black pack, but like the way the chrome mirrors, rails, rear body colour all tie in. The only thing I don't like about the S3 is the blingy chrome grill. Too much chrome going on there. If I could keep the chrome surround but have the mesh I would.

    Somebody please make this available !

    If you wish it, they will build it.


    Possibly that 8V had the RS grille modified from an RS4/5/6 ??

    Perhaps you could take some measurements? Overall width at the top, height and width at the bottom to make it worth looking into.
    I do like the honey comb grills though.

    Abt show a grill for the A3 but it's not detailed on their website and it looks dreadful. but no grill for the S3 Audi_A3_8V0_Sportback_Front_DR_03.png ABT_S3_8V0_front_still_01.jpg

    Wow, agree - that Abt effort is tragic. Surely S3 and A3 are the same dimensions and fixings though?

    The new RS6 grill would look good? Looks about the right size too.

    Remember the A3/S3 needs to have a cutout for the radar sensor in the front of the grill. I believe that the A4 and A6 have these sensors located closer to the wings so no cutout needed, but feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

    No the large central glass dome in the middle-lower section of the front grill.

    then the grille doesn't "need" the cutout. It's specification dependent on ACC

    I thought that they left the gap in the grill and had a blanking plate there if you didn't spec ACC(?) This is what they do in the Mk7 Golf too. It so they don't have to design, make and stock more than one grill.

    It's a shame about the abt grill seem to be one of the only companies to have a decent amount of upgrades available.

    In the dealers today, saw an RSQ3 and the grill looked about the right size, if that fitted it would look great......... images.jpg

    I'd like to go one step further, taking cues from the R8 & new TT.

    How about a honeycomb grill, with number plate and then a bonnet mounted set of smaller rings...?

    They are the guys who make the Quattro front grill badges, few people on here have them and the quality is questionable apparently.

    This is like the Chinese company who releases the new iPhone before  and sticks android on it with a fake iOS overlay on it.

    Be funny if the RS3 has a totally different grill to this come the launch.
