    Hi all,

    I've had a good look at all the previous grill threads on here and I'm stuck. I quite like the RS3 optics grill, but at £400, it's not cheap. However, the cheap alternatives are quite nice too, and they're around the £80 mark which is appealing.

    Here are my choices:

    Replica honeycombe:
    AUDI A3 8P 2005-2008 BLACK HONEYCOMB DEBADGED SPORTS GRILL & BADGE HOLDER | eBay

    Genuine RS3:
    RS3 8P front center grille PIANO black color for RS3 A3 S3 Audi style Europe | eBay

    I have a Brilliant Red 8P... I found another eBay listing with the replica grill and it had pics on a red A3...

    Here's my Audi: Audi | Tom Cash

    Here are the eBay pictures:

    Here is how the genuine grill could look for me:

    Thoughts, peeps?

    I want people to think "wow" when they see my car - will the replica have that same effect? I feel like it could...

    Tom.

    Tom,

    The replica you have posted will not fit yours, only 2005-2008.

    Yours is the facelift 09, the grille is a different size.

    I think the eBay specials look OK IMO. Worth a change but the RS3 grill is the dogs danglies.

    Definitely go for the genuine RS3 grill. It'll fit straight onto an 8P3, and it will looks EPIC!

    I have a replica on my 55 plate and think it looks alot meaner than the norm and wasnt too expensive, just depends how much you want to spend.

    That looks A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I'm loving the S3 in Java Green!

    The black optics RS3 grill looks mega as well - does anyone on here have this same RS3 grill fitted to the front of their Ibis White S3? If so, I'd love to see some pics...
