    Scottie, the S-Line badge you have for the FK-Grille, do you happen to know the part number? Apparently there are two A3 style S-Line Grille badges with different fitment.

    4F0 853 736 B - S-Line Grille only

    8P4 853 736 A - Single Grille (Pre-S-Line I think)

    Does it matter? Which did you go for?

    Cheers

    I tried both and neither fitted!

    I tried asking FK, and they didnt know what badge would fit either. They suggested the 2 part numbers you listed.

    In the end, I modified one to fit.

    Basically removed the s line badge from the bracket it is on, trimmed it down in width and stuck it on with araldite :)

    Hope that helps !

    Hi Scottie

    Do you have the Seat part number for the splitter and can you please confirm what is needed and involved with the fitting?

    Sorry mate :crying:

    splitter p/no is 1ML 805 903

    All you need is some self tapping screws about 15-20mm long, a drill with a bit to put pilot holes through, a hacksaw to trim the 2 centre lugs down and a screwdriver :rockwoot:

    Remember to put it on with masking tape first.

    That way , you can have a look at it from all angles and make sure it is all in line before you finally fix it.

    It will look the nuts on red!

    According to the lamin-x site, there is a 5% light reduction, so hardly any :) When I put some uprated bulbs in, it will be brighter than standard anyway

    xenons......no problem....many have done it!

    Thanks mate! Slowly getting there :)

    Thanks! no, it is tint. The lamin-x is strange stuff, it can go from looking very dark in situation to nigh on clear in another.

    Thanks m8! Could do with your rims though :)

    I think I am going to go down the total black/blue route. First thing I NEED to do is sort the alloys. Either matt blacking the current ones or getting some different rims. Just the mod fund is now low atm after the last few months!

    Will look good on your car 4NT, it is the best Audi colour in the world.....I'm not biased at all :)

    Scottie / Madluke (if you're about) - when you got the S-Line fogs and fog grilles did you get the (torx?) screws with the fog lamps or did you have to buy the screws to fit the parts seperately?

    Are they torx screws?
