    So my grill arrived after I ordered it from FK Automotive, came from germany and i am pretty pleased with the quality of it saying that it did only cost me a total of 28 pound to get it to me.

    my only questions are that on either side of where the number plate should go there is a round hole on either side. and it doesnt seem like i can unclip my silver surround from my old grill and place it onto this one as it doesnt have any gaps to where the surround would clip into place.

    I agree with Southylad. Those holes are in exactly the same position as the parking sensors on my OEM grille.

    ^^^^^^^^what they said about parking sensors, as for the silver surround it looks like you don't need to fit it as its built in but blacked out(maybe???)

    Lol typical me then. Haha whoops. Wonder if I can buy caps or plugs to replace the holes? To be honest I just bought the first grill that popped up, for all we know, I've just bought a grill for an A1 or something daft. Time will tell.

    Does the finish to the surround look like it needs the chrome part fitting

    Might as well retro-fit some parking sensors!

    That might be a plan to retro fit the sensors but the question is.... Will it cost a bomb? Lol and more importantly is it hard to do?

    cheers guys. NOZ, not too sure if it will fit the s-line but it definately fits my standard A4 Avant 07. id just double check before you buy. I have for sale the genuine OEM rs4 grill that will fit the sS-line, id didnt fit my A4 which isnt the s-line so I;m selling it instead.

    Cheers for looking
