    Such adjustments have been made by a partner in Spain.
    He adapted the S-Line for a grid style RS, surely this kind of adaptation can also be done in S3.

    It does look really good, I can see the attraction, its a shame one of main players in body kits doesn't tune into this potential.

    I think so you can see the proximity of the photograph.

    The adaptation work was all manual and it is my view very point of perfection!

    looks weird that car, not sure i'm liking it, the grill looks to small, and it also looks a bit recessed, very odd..

    This thread was what I had exactly in my mind. I was looking all over (FK Grills) and etc, but just couldn't find any dice for this. I wonder if anyone tried another model's RS grills to try fitting on the A3/S3's. I would prefer one myself for the facelift A3! I reckon it would look the nuts! :D
