    Hi all and merry Christmas,

    Just a quickie. Does the S3 upper radiator grille and the S3 lower number grille fit into the A3 1.8t?

    Cheers

    Mike

    Radiator grille definitely doesn't, and 99% certainly the lower grille won't fit either.

    None of the S3 grills will fit onto an S3 bumper, Only way to fit them is by fitting a S3 bumper onto your a3

    Bugger lol.

    What alternatives do we have for the upper grille? I want to change mine, don't like the standard one.

    Any ideas on which grilles us non-S3 owners can use for a bit of something different?

    what exactly is it you dont like about the a3 grill? Thought about wrapping the chrome lip and spraying the 4 rings?

    I have an OEM S3 style 'de-badged/de-ringed' A3 8L facelift fitment grille for sale.

    Exact copy of original grille, minus the rings/chrome. Looks very nice fitted in my opinion....clean & subtle.
