    Hi All.

    Spotted a B6 Avant with the GMBH kit on at the All Types show a week ago but it had the RS4 honeycomb style upper and lower grill. I've found the upper grill on eBay but I can't find the lower GMBH size grill with honey comb.

    This is the upper grill

    Does anyone know where I can get one from?

    Cheers

    Hmmm, would a Votex one fit the GMBH lower do you reckon?

    Been looking everywhere for a decent RS4-style honeycomb upper. Mine has cracked across a couple of bars, seems to be made out of quite crappy thin plastic.

    Hadn't thought of that. I've found some honey comb mesh on eBay which looks similar. Might try customising my original one, it has a big crack in the middle anyway.

    I've just took delivery of a sheet of honeycomb to make a lower one. The honeycomb is slightly smaller than the fog light grilles, but it's a better match than the standard slatted one.
    I can't believe Audi couldn't be arsed to make a new centre grille to match.

    That looks like pretty decent stuff, plastic looks nice and thick doesn't it. I can take pics/measurements of my votex lower and send them over if you want, see if it might fit?

    I'd been looking for a honeycomb upper and lower replacement for mine (with GmbH lower), mainly as the lower grill surround was fairly corroded/chipped etc.

    After digging in ETKA and doing other research, it seems it is a specific shape for that lower bumper only. As far as I can tell a honeycomb lower one needs to be made DIY style, even aftermarket companies don't make them......

    I don't remember even seeing any non-GmbH lower grills in honeycomb.

    The closest I got was an OEM GmbH lower grill from a seller in Germany that does them cheaper than my main dealer can (I think): Audi A4 B6 original S-Line Gitter mitte Spoiler Stoßstange Stoßstangengitter 8E | eBay

    Have a look at their ebay store too as they seem to specialise in OEM+ upgrades/replacements. Although some bits are quite pricey! I might consider modding my original one to 'RS looks' and if it doesn't work maybe get a new one.

    I too would love an RS4 looking front end. But having resprayed mine the outer's on mine, I'm happy for now.......
