    Any ideas, anyone (with the exception of coughing up £90 at Audi!)?

    Got a s-Line lower bumper waiting to go on, just need this piece. Been scouring eBay but no luck. Anywhere else I could get on?

    thanks in advance, guys

    Thanks, mate. Is the non-S-Line one the same shape? Would i be able to use a non S-line one if i mounted it with a couple of self tappers at an angle so that you couldnt see them or is it completely different?

    TIA

    The standard lower is quite a bit shallower, you need the real thing really.

    Your best bet is to scour ebay, and hope you can find one incorrectly listed which no one else spots!

    Try this seller on ebay partsdepot_uk

    they had a new one for sale last month for £40 - if you email them they do tend to re-stock items

    People have done it, I 'think' its virtually a straight fit. You then need an S4 upper too lol!

    I've had a standard lower grill in my s-line bumper for ages now. there's an inch gap at the bottom and I just have a couple of fine black cable ties holding it along the top. I bought black plastic mesh and rubber trim to do my own lower but forgot to pick it up the last 2 times i was at my mate's house in the UK. doh! hopefully he'll post it on but he's fairly rubbish at doing these things (I've been asking for a long time). I'd be more uptight about it if i was in the UK and "posing" a bit. I still want it done soon but don't want to pay for the mesh a second time as it wasn't that cheap.
    An S4 lower does go into an s-line bumper by the way but needs shaved a little at the back of the lower edge. I've been keeping an eye for a used one for a while and haven't spotted one yet.
    ah yes. here's a photo of my std grille in s-line bumper

    ah.. and a summer one. I can certainly live with it as a 'temporary' measure.

    Thats a great thought, thank you. I have them a bell but it was a low impact on the front. :-(
    excellent idea tho, thank you! Will keep an eye out for others being broke.
