    alrite lads,

    my black grill has just arrived and it may just be me but I can't find a guide on here for fitting it. To be honest I don't really fancy bodging it so can anyone tell me how easy/hard it is.

    Or anyone near north wales / deeside area fancy doing it for me (paid obvs...) :(

    thanks

    ok sound, I reckon I'll just give it a go. How essential is it to put the car on jacks??

    no need, to get at the M10 bolts, you can put the front wheels on full lock and then remove the some to the torx screws on the wheel arch liner. then pull then wheel arch liner back, another pair of hands helps, so that you can get at the 2 no. bumper torx screws and the M10 bolts. a torch will come in handy if you do it this way.

    Still looking lad. Have applied for a few other jobs in engineering so if I get success then an RS3 it is for me. If not then I will stick with the S3 for a little longer. No great shakes if I do though.

    your car is mint lad, looks brill. yep the RS3 is the ultimate A3 so can't blame you for wanting one if the $$$$ are there.
