    I've been looking at buying an rs3 style grill for my car but the ones on eBay say not for s3 or s-line can anyone elaborate on this ?
    If it is the case does anyone know where I can get one that does fit ?
    Cheers Don

    There won't be an OEM one available as the the RS3 was only introduced in 2011

    Exactly the RS3 OEM only fit Facelift.

    The only way to have a similar style it is the grille that i have in my car.

    The A3 and S3 Pre facelift have the same grille.

    I'd like to see that on a S3 front end, I'm tempted myself! Anyone have any pics?

    The best grille for the Pre Facelift is the RS6 grille, not cheap though.
