    Next Gen RS3, or not ???

    Agree, it looks like they forgot to add the vents and just stuck whatever they could find on top of the drivers console. It looks horrendous [emoji848] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Facelift Front Grill Quattro Lettering

    The two badges on the front grill are just clipped on, but you need to go easy with them as only plastic and easily broken. Plenty of videos on #youtube. Many of the videos use a ‘trim tool’ to prise them off. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
