    8P RS3.......Questions.......

    Hi Alan, Im not to sure how much my 2 pennies worth will help but I hope it may help your decision to buy. I swapped in my Stage 2+ Golf 6R and bought an RS3 8P.

    Black Front Grille Emblem

    Here's the grille emblem fitted. Slightly bigger than OEM. Comes in 3 parts, very easy assembly and easy enough to fit. However doesnt sit perfectly flush to the grille so will have to be careful when washing.
