Hi guys and girls.

Just doing a bit of research to see how many of you have done or are looking to change the front Grille on your Facelift A3? If so where would you get the grille from? An Audi Dealership or would you just go for a used one?

Recently I changed the standard Grille and Fog grilles on my 2009 A3 S-Line to the Black Edition variations and noticed that I was able to get Black Edition, Glossy Black, S3 Black, S3 Titanium Grilles and all the different variations of Fog Grilles for a good bit cheaper than an Audi Dealer.

I have also created some detailed, illustrated instructions on how to perform the upgrade listing all the tools you need etc.

I'd be interested to see how many of you have done the upgrade and where you'd normally get your parts from. And also if you are thinking of getting it done.

I have been given permission by Sandra via the administrators to post this so please do not remove :)
