    Hi all just a quick question about the A3. My S-Line comes with 2 badges on the side of the car but not on the front grille. Is this because of the type of my grille or has the previous owner removed it. I'll post a pic to help things along.

    They no longer do. I believe from 2009 onwards the grill changed. I think they look better with an sline badge just haven't got round to fitting one yet

    I bought one from awesome gti. Type it into google. It's definitely a genuine badge and they are really helpful up there!

    Ps annoying that Audi still fit a Quattro badge but not Slines

    As said they stopped fitting when the model was facelifted... It was to bring it inline with rest of the Audi range as they have the badges on the wings to and not the grills...

    Yes I did it myself. Very straight forward to fix really, the hardest part is fixing the clips which go behind and be careful not to drop the clip behind the grill or you will lose it. Took me about 15mins.
     
  12. What and you didnt have to take the grill off or anything like that?

    No, u just need put your hand through one of the gaps of the grill to fix the clips.
