    I notice a lot of people want to change their split grill for a new shape one piece.
    I think the new shape makes the car look front end heavy and very un-streamlined.
    Just out of interest, Am i the only one left who actually prefers the old split grill ??

    I kept my split grill on my old A3 as I liked the retro look of the car and wanted to keep it as OEM as possible - plus, I knew I was going to own another A3 and didn't want to change the front end as I wanted to look forward to a change in the new car - which I have done!

    I did de-chrome the grill though and painted the logo satin black which worked a treat!

    However, I want to change my big grill from the S3 to a black one!

    lol! dont worry mate its all down to personal preference?

    however personally i do think the big grill looks much more meaner and aggressive. Makes the car look more 21st century, stand out from the rest of the manufactures

    as most of audis front ends seem to be just a massive grill now! (esp from 2008 and on theres hardly a bumper left! lol

    No i still have my split grill with vinyl wrapped around the chrome bits like boydie. But i am going for the one grill looks soo much better. But i did like how boydie turned out. Thats why i went for the vinyl wrap!
