    Looks good. Is that a genuine RS4 grill or a modified grill? Considering doing mine at some point.

    Hey Razza that does look good, you saved me a message to Wrath as I saw he has something similar and wanted to know what he had done.
    Now for the really cheeky part :) have you got any mesh left over? I happy to pay for it, just thought I might get some advice and a quick look at yours when I came to pick it up!
    Cheers

    genuine RS4 grill.

    the mesh I cut with a junior hacksaw, I tried to glue it in place but couldn't get it to work, so used a small screw in the bottom of the mesh to secure it the fog cover at the back.

    I have some mesh left but had already promised it to others first, will let you know if they don't want it.

    No probs Razza, totally understand :)

    I've got some old cheap silver grille stuff lying round the garage somewhere, so I'm off to have a little practice!
    Oh yeah and order some tiger seal!!

    The more I see this done, the more I want to do it. How difficult a process is this? Does the bumper need to come off or do the foglight inserts come off?

    Thanks

    pretty easy.

    The grills just pop out, reach your hand in at the top and there's a couple of tabs/clips, pull these down and they just pop out. You'll find all kinds of **** make it down to the intercoolers, so these mesh covers will also reduce that and ensure they retain max airflow to the surface.

    Appreciate the help, Razza. Think I'll order the mesh and tiger seal while I'm at it.
    I hope you don't mind all the questions but I have another lol
    I have an S-Line SE with the black optics pack so if I were to get an RS4 grill, I'd like to keep a black surround like yours has. Would I be able to keep the currount black surround I have or would I have to black out the RS4 grill surround?

    Ah, I didn't realise there was one. Thanks, Bez

    And Razza, I now officially dislike you :p
    Eventhough I dislike you, I'd still love to see a full shot of the car with the fog grills done :)

    Looks good.

    I'd really like to have the rs4 mesh grill and fog surrounds, but as I have a sline cab fitted with an se bumper its very difficult.
