    Just do what i did ebay your s line grill inc badge as the fetch really good cash then buy after market badge and make it fit ! If you want oem fitment though only way with RS4 grill is buy RS4 grill badge and remove RS4 decal and stick on s line but that costs silly money !!!

    Your car is looking great.

    Can I ask some questions?

    Where did you get the spacers and the springs from?
    What are the B5 cups and why fit them?
    Does the intake make any difference? i.e. fit it before remap.
    Where did you get the cupra splitter and how is it fixed on.
    Lastly, did your car come with the black window trim or have you covered up the chrome? if so, how?

    Sorry for the questions but I'm looking to make similar mods to mine.

    Spring cups lower front more about 15mm on top of lowering.springs can be used with stock springs also.Buy them from.main dealer.
    Window trim is wrapped in vinyl
    Cupra splitter is held on with self tapping screws. Very easy mod
    Intake makes a subtle.noise its not over the top. Doesnt need to be fitted before remap as to be honest makes little performance difference just sounds good !

    Love the look, where did you get the grill from, and is it an easy job to change? Also do you have a part number for the splitter?

    Also the fog light change as well?

    Thank's in advance

    Grill is Genuein RS4 black optic grill from main dealer cant remember part number try google ? To fit the grill.the front bumper has to come off.
    Fog surround is a custom job with RS 4 mesh off ebay its fairly easy mod.
