    Hi people,

    Did a search no joy with the subject at hand...well not too detailed?

    Does anybody have any ideas or tips on how too remove the grills without scratching the bumper as I am probably going to end up having to remove the whole bumper otherwise!

    cheers:hubbahubba:

    Do they? They seem pretty firmly attached....

    If you are refering to the grills on your car (if you have a 2.0 tdi A3) They are slightly different looking......

    on the a3, there is a clip top and bottom that you can push together with a couple of flat head drivers, then it just pulls out. but ive not seen the s3 ones!

    sorry to bring up an old thread but does this count for all audi a3's?

    I have an a3 04 2.0 TDI and was planning to change whole front lights including the fog lights. The kit i was going to buy includes H7 fog lights, would these not work? ive included a link to the kit i was going to buy.
