    Hi guys,

    Might of possibly sold my RS4 grille. However, the guys wants the part number from it to confirm its a genuine item. Where abouts on the grille is it cos I can't find it anywhere. (although I haven't removed the grille yet)

    Cheers,

    Dan

    Post up a picture of it. It will be immediately obvious if it's genuine.

    I have RS4 bumper grills and there is no part number on it..
    I think there is no part number on your grill, too..

    I can buy your grill, too :) How much cost ?

    Its currently SNOWING outside! (Damn Yorkshire weather) So will try and get a close up pic later. I thought it was genuine too. Whats a good price for a gen grille?

    Been offered £100 for it.

    Snap their arm off. I thought a brand new one wasn't that much more.

    wasnt aware you could get brand new ones that easily, isnt that the reason they went through the roof?
    There must be a plastic stamp on it somewhere, all VAG plastics have the symbol stamped on them.

    in out world run by accountants they must be a PN on it somewhere.
    cant think of a single plastic piece in the car that doesnt have something stamped on it

    They're listing at £120 new.

    VAG seems to raise the prices of items as their inventory stock runs down if its an no-longer-supported component, hence why they're now £120 when they used to be £50.

    Cheers Aragorn. Any ideas where abouts it would be on the grille? Will look at removing the grille over next few days to check properly.

    It's the genuine article!! However, the guy now says he bought one of eBay, not a gen but very similar for £25!

    Oh well, at least i now know its genuine.

    has a date of 17 OTT 2001 printed on it.
