    I'm wanting to do the honeycomb conversion front grill on my S3 8p (pre facelift). Does anybody know if you can buy just the surround for the grill or am I going to have to chop up a second hand S3 grill??

    You will need the hole grill and chop it for the pre facelift

    Are there any of the cheap aftermarket grills that can be cut to do the project?

    Most people use a RS3 grill, there is a group buy that i think is still going on, although think it does have to be butchered a bit to fit the pre facelift!

    Very nice mate. I was thinking of the one like I posted just for the cost factor. Would the fixings be in the right place on the above 1?

    On an A3 yes... If your doing it on a S3 then that FK 1 wont fit... S3 grill is slightly smaller than A3's

    I absolutely love the look of this. Really contemplating doing it for mine. Top off the stealth look...

    Thats what i'm saying fella... The whole grill surround is longer and the frame, it wont fit without a lot of modification

    Arrgh I c. So with the market filled with aftermarket grills will none of them be easy to convert in to an S3 one like you can with the RS6 one. I just don't fancy spending £300+ on one just to cut it up lol.
