    Hello, i have an A3 S Line TDI, it's an 05, the front end looks like this..

    [​IMG]

    I want the front end to look like this 2005 S line A3..

    [​IMG]

    As you can see the car below has an all around chrome grille, this is what i would like, is it just a case of buying the complete grille, removing mine and fitting this one?

    If you could give a price of the parts needed and some instructions on what i may need to do that would be good.

    Thanks.

    Chuff me, that isn't cheap.. Scrap that idea then.. Do Audi have an S-line Grille badge which fits my grille, i bought one but it didn't fit, i can only assume it was for the face lift grille which we have discussed already..

    Thanks for the info!

    Will that fit a non face lift front end though Dave?

    I bought a badge and clips of ebay and it wouldn't fit, it had no where to clip in as it was for a facelift car with the single grille..

    Thanks

    I have no idea what the part number is, all i know is that i bought it off ebay and it doesn't fit, i was un aware that there were different types when i bought it, i can only tell you that my car doesn't have the face lift front end, the red car below is mine..

    The picture of the badge i have uploaded is how mine came and just what it looks like, ie the badge and the two clips. It would appear that the slats within my grille are two far apart for the clips supplied with the badge to be able to have any mounting points, hope that makes sense?

    Thanks again!

    How does this badge fit onto the grille on my car below Dave? There aren't any clips with it? Can you have a look at the photo below and let me know how to do it?

    I have no idea? :wacko:

    as far as i knew,
    you just placed it against the fins where you want it fitted
    then from the rear slide the clamps on to lock it into place

    will check out for more info on monday

    Morning,

    I have checked the clamps i have with the previous badge i have purchased and they are different, they are a different size and don't fit inside the holes on the badge to clip into the grille.

    Can you send me the clamps for the badge i have purchased from you?

    Am i right in saying that the clamps sit in those 2 rectanglular cut outs on the back of the badge? If that is the case the ones i have are two wide and are wrong.

    If they don't sit into the rectangular cut outs where do they go?

    Thanks

    i think the best thing for me to do is
    for me to order a grille and badge to your chassis number and take a look myself
    as this to and fro is not getting anywhere

    they should be here thursday
