    Hey Guys,

    Another noobie S3 question here.

    Why are the fog surrounds different on different Audis?

    These are the two main types I see. One set look like RS3 surrounds (white), one look similar to my TDI (grey).

    I'd like to know which ones are which for when I eventually purchase.

    Cheers!

    Tom.

    those are both S3s from different years though.
    the white S3 is a prefacelift or 8P2 as we call it (2006-2008)
    the grey S3 is a facelift model or 8P3 (2008-2012)

    Sorry mate, can't get the pre-facelift fog grilles for any A3/S3. Ash is right, your next option is Audi/TPS.
