    Can anyone tell me if the grills are the same on the saloon and SB?
    I've ordered a saloon but you can't spec the black grill and I'd like to know if the SB black grill would fit.

    cheers!

    I don't think it will and I believe someone else posted this up before. The trouble with the saloon is that, according to Audi, all the body panels are different to the SB. Having said that mine is gloss black...

    I know the grill is gloss black (s-line), but it still comes with chrome surround on all saloon models.
    Really want to de-chrome once the car arrives, but would prefer not to use vinyl.

    The Saloon is longer, wider and lower, and has a wider track.

    A3 Saloon
    4456x1796x1416

    A3 SB
    4310x1785x1425

    Thanks dude - appreciate most of the panels are different.
    Curious if anyone could confirm SB & saloon part numbers for the grill (or specifically the surround if a separate piece)
