Labour of love cutting, sandpaper, bonding, filling, drilling, primer more primer coats, paint x4 coats.
Thanks for everyone's positive comments will be posting pics once one paint is dryed up.

Looks really good, I dont even know how to remove my fog lights so I wouldn't know where to begin lol.
 
After fitting i'm happy with the result but gotta say the mesh is not that visible as s3 8p ones.

Wanted the s3 8p ones but unfortunately would have been the whole bumper to replace so best next thing was the diy job.

Really like your mesh look RS3 grill, I can only seem to find matt black ones -are these chrome ones still available for A3 04-08?
