    Although I don't like the matt black grill, the four rings should always be shiny as well...

    Daytona. No doubts. Makes the rear lights stand out better they blend in too much on a red car and personally should be a prominent rear feature.

    It's not an S3 or the best lighting but here's a Misano Saloon

    It's of no help, but both look fantastic. Go with your gut on it, not your head

    Another pic from the French forum audi passion.
    This guy has managed to fit an RS grill to his 8v - looks decent I think!

    Mmmh. Now I'm not so sure it is Daytona. It's one of the press cars from the original launch. I thought they were Datytona. Maybe it is Monsoon.

    It looks a little bit light for Daytona. I could be completely wrong, might just be wishful thinking!

    It's just a photoshop job if you read through the post. Not an actual install.

    Either way though, looks bad ass.

    Nice car!

    Quick question: How did you get those rims? From the looks of it, they are the 18" from the A3/S3 Limousine. Is this true?
    They look so much better, being convex rather than straight.

    there's a guy I follow on Instagram who is making an aftermarket RS honeycomb grill for the 8v.... Will be very tempted when he sticks them up for sale. Might try organise a group buy or something if they're any good

    Might have a long wait no? Also how much they normally go for?

    This guys grills are around £275. Sells quite a few (other models) with happy customers.That and he should have his first batch within the next few weeks

    Hi Lowrey,

    You're right! You're the first one that noticed this

    When the car arrived at the dealer, it come in a wrong set of wheels (it comes with the black 5 arm rotor, which I don't like). They couldn't find any other spare wheel for the standard s-line sportback, so they swapped it with the sedan /Limousine S-line 18'' that they have in stock.

    I'm very happy with this wheel, it has more aggressive offset compare to the standard A3/S3 sportback wheel.
