    Is the RS3 grill a direct fit on a 2011 S3? What's it like to fit, do you need to remove bumper? Seen a few oem ones for sale but very expensive, £500-600 which is a lot for piece of plastic. Anyone do cheaper good quality grills?

    any pics of RS3 grill on S3?

    I am going to be doing a group buy for the £250 version off Ebay. Apparently afew have fitted this over on S/RS forum and its very good quality with no fitment issues. I have spoken to the importer and Im hopefully getting a sample of one. If we can get 10 or more he is willing to drop the price to £210 delivered and lower if we get anymore interested parties.

    It'll be after Xmas now seeing as its so close. Gives people enough time to fill the wallets again....lol

    I've got a set of chrome rings lying loose at the moment if you wanna try n see... i'm plasti-dipping an oem grill just now, so they are off... but will be putting them back on the grill at the wkend... always an option and get a pic and get feedback on here, to try and swing your vote either way, without you having to shell out the candy

    I've been toying with the idea of an RS3 grille since i bought my S3 thanks to this forum! I'd be interested in putting my name down for that Brodster, glad it'll be after xmas lol.

    P.s R90 STL and Ash187 both your cars look mint! Particularly the RS6 Alloys!

    Right guys one of my group buys has nearly finished so IF your interested in an RS3 grill then PM me please as Im gonna contact the guy just before Xmas and give him a heads up. Price will be £210 plus postage which I think will be about a tenner but dont quote me on that. So go for max £220. Let me know guys please and ensure that this grill will fit your car.........as I will not do refunds if it doesn't.

    They need to make one for the 8P2 aswell, the rs6 grille mod is too expensive
