    Sounds good mate wasn't sure if there were any visible clips or if the plate would be easy for people to steal etc. I can't wait completely changes the look of the front end

    That looks awesome! I don't see how anyone would know this was a replica RS3 grille. It truly does look the part! Nice one :wub: xx

    No there are no visible clips. Ive managed to find a photo on my phone which shows the grill without the number plate on. The plate holder can be completely removed for shows etc

    Can you put OEM chrome rings into these? And can an S3 badge be squeezed on? Definitely keen!

    Not sure about the rings, but the S3 badge dos'nt fit. Had to chop the back of the badge up and fit a cable tie to it to get it to fit.

    not sure if the company make different badges to fit the grill

    Hi Guys

    Just to shine some light on questions you have regarding these grills

    Please fire away as most of the grills have been purchased from my website or ebay from my ebay shop

    Im sure theres over 50 people on this forum that have purchased these grills from me and can vouch for the quality and fitment

    all badges can be removed and the number plate surround/holder can also come off and you can never tell that it was ever there.

    I also have chrome badges for the grills so if you prefer a chrome badge and not a gloss black thats not a problem

    p.s. how do i arrange a group buy and become a paid trade member so i dont get kicked off......lol

    Hi Xenonz, thanks for the heads up. Are you able to obtain/make fit an S3 badge for this grille?

    I am working on it at the moment

    What most of my customers have done is cut a little section off the rs3 badge that is supplied and re arranged the letters from rs3 to s3 or if they have a s3 that they are installing the grill on to than they remove s3 badge from their old grill and fit it to the new grill.

    some customer cars on link below:-

    CUSTOMERS CARS - XENONZ UK

    BUT currently we do not have "s3" badges available but will have some in the near future

    hope this helps

    anyone else have these grilles? maybe with the chrome or matt aluminium surround ? any of the other colour combos! black is good, but hard to see once on the car (would like to see another colour fitted if poss) :)

    Is there any quick release or easy way to remove the number plate with this grill for attending car shows?

    Have you gone for the silver rings? or black

    Maybe there is an easy way to take it off but I certainly don't know how it's done haha I'd quite like to know as it would be good for shows and stuff. I already had black badges so I just kept them

    As long as the plate can be removed, i.e. if the plate is attached with velcro or something that can allow the plate to be easily removed from the number plate bracket there are 3 plastic rivet type screws once you remove them the number plate bracket/holder just comes off and you cant even tell if it was ever there.

    Chrome audi rings are also available if you need them, on my ebay adverts you can opt for black or chrome rings, just let me know when checking out.

    taking the plate holder seems easy enough then. can you put it back on without removing the grill etc etc? I dont want to take it off and have to go through all of that to get the number plate back on!

    what annoys me so much is the price difference between the 2008 pre face lift and the 2009 facelift model
