A4 S LINE CAB, 2006
Thought this may help for some. This my grill on my B7 Sline cab. It has a non Sline bumper as fitted at the factory.

View attachment 83003
The tell tail sign is the opening bellow the grill in the front bumper. The Sline has a much narrower opening making the grills dimensions taller, not sure about width etc. There are more options with this the standard bumper than on an Sline bumper.
I hope this helps.

I personally don't like the bars through where there should be a grill with the fog in... I want to get RS honeycomb grill and think it should have grills where these bars are. Can I change bumper easily? Ie does it use same mount points etc

Just pull the fog light grill off and unscrew the housing. Otherwise you’ll have to take the bumper off or reach under or around.

I have recently fitted my personal plate, it is a short plate and the gap at the sides of the front plate are starting to bug me, is there a smooth plate panel available for s-line front bumper? I have been looking but haven't found what I'm after, I'm sure they exist but don't know the part number or correct name, any help appreciated

several plate filler options are available but not all are listed, look in the parts database under the bodywork section for you model and you will see what the options are and their part number aswell.

to make things easy here is the direct link to the page you need.

hope that helps.

Thanks Rob, I'll have a look, i've been a member for a long time but been out of an Audi for years so getting used to the site again

EDIT.... Just tried using that, it looks like i want number 4, but can't find information on that part, all of the others except that one :(

Looking to do the RS6 grill mod on my A4 B7 s-line.
I’ve noticed that the “RS6 style” grill that fits the A6 is a lot cheaper on eBay, does anyone know if this is big enough to cut up and use on my A4 grill?

Thanks.

you'll be struggling to find many viable alternatives chap hence why so many guys go the oem RS4 grille route .....

I'm fancy the S4 grille for mine,
but second hand these seem even rarer than the RS4 ones !

So you guys mean that the S4 grill fits an S-Line bumper to 100 % ?

S4 B7 grille is an off the shelf fit without any issue as the bumper is an s-line bumper.

My car has parking sensors in the license plate holder.
If I swap grill to one where the plate holder does not have sensors, can I simply disconnect my sensors without any issue?
Alternatively, can I find a plate holder (black) with sensor cutouts plus sensor covers in black?
Thanks

If you just disconnect the front sensors, you have end up with the rears not working, this happened to mine when a front sensor went down, are you changing the colour of the grill? Also all the sensors are identical just the colour is different so no covers.

Yes, I am changing from silver grill to black optics grill. The plate holder and sensors are silver too and that's what I need to deal with somehow.

When you say all sensors are the same, you mean for the plate holder(s) or you mean for the entire vehicle? If they are going to be identical for the entire vehicle then I can buy two new unpainted sensors that are not specifically for the plate holder...

Here's a picture of what I am dealing with:

grey is the standard color for the s-line grille plate holder, all grilles have the PDC holes but the plate holder assembly and cover are different if you have PDC or not.

If you checkout the parts diagram section for b7 's you will see what option are available with or without PDC.

It wasn't in the diagrams (from what I could tell), but I found it googling: "8E0807285BC".
Now I just need to figure out what to do with the gray sensors: get black sensors somehow or maybe strip the paint with acetone(?)

Why don’t you just spray the plate holder and sensors black. Just key them first with some fine grade paper and spray them

And whatever you do don’t use acetone on the sensors as they end up melting

I just thought I'd add to the bumper info.
If anyone is contemplating changing their front bumper (say if they have an s-line cab with the standard non-s-line bumper) to the s4/s-line shape and they have a 3.0 v6 tdi then they will have to cut the existing intercooler scoops to fit the new s4/s-line bumper as they are not an exact swap without the scoop modification.
Many s-line bumpers only have one open intercooler scoop.
Hope that helps someone.

nothing to be confused about chap , you just need to be sure on what bumper you have at the moment as that will dictate what will fit and what you will need.
