    They have about another 8 screws behind the grill so the bumper needs to come off. Also there are loads of clips holding the bumper in place and they are a complete mission to release without the bumper off...

    Did you do the conversion? any pics?

    I'm wanting to change mine but don't fancy removing the bumper so if it can be done with bumper in place then i'll do it

    Hi N8
    i'm wanting to fit either the FK or optics black grille
    I'm also looking into the rear valance - will the S3 or black edition valance fit into the 2006 S-Line rear bumper?

    I've also ordered a pair of stainless tailpipe trims, the idea is to cut the origional downswept pipes off and fit the new straight trims :)

    Sry I forgot bout this thread lol, ye I removed the grill without removing the bumper however there is 2 screws behind the grill which I sawd through with a hack saw blade then removed once the grill is off as they arnt needed at all, how ever it will be easier to remove the grill by removing the bumper, but ocethem screws are out and left out, if u remove in the future you will just have to pull the grill to remove
