    Is the S3 grille a straight swap for a BE? and can you swap the S3 badge for a S-Line?

    Not bought from them myself, Fella, but the price is good, their feedback is excellent and most of all, it will definitely fit your car as Ash says. I sold my old S3 grille to another member on here and he changed the S3 badge for an S-Line one and it looked really cool on his car. :wub: xx

    Nope, iv not lowered it. Not really into that. More into packing gadgets in :)

    The new Tfsi engine is pretty good but it is a bit juicy on the old fuel...
