    Hi, had a collision with 4 yes 4 pigeons on the motorway doing about 80mph, they trashed the front lower grille and the n/s spot-light grille. My car is an 04 sport avant with the GmbH front spoiler. Are all the grilles the same? I noticed a few on eBay which look like what I need but they specify that it won't fit s-line or an Avant??

    Grilles are the same between saloon and avant.

    You want Gmbh (S-Line style) grilles, probably best to search on part number (look in the stickes). Just make sure with the fog light grilles you either buy open or closed vents depending on what you have now.

    The centre grilles are quite rare on ebay and don't last long as they're £100 ish new.

    The eBay copy grilles don't even come close to fitting so don't risk trying them

    I had this happen with a brand new 307 hire car and a pheasant. When I pulled into the work carpark the pheasnt was still alive and kicking about in the grille so had to pull it out and ring its neck, not nice.

    A collegue of mine took it home and cooked it :ohmy:

    Sorry, not really helping the problem but thought I had to share it.
