Yes just be sure it’s a B8.5 RS5 grille.

It’s a bumper off job, but not too tricky. Plenty of guides in the interwebs. Very common mod.

Yup. I bought one for my old A5 for about £150 and was very happy with it. I had to swap the chrome edge for the OEM one off the original grille, but the black edition ones are fine.

Never bothered on my old S5 as it was the BE, so the standard grill is OK, and I didn’t own it as it was on finance. Knew it was going back so didn’t bother...

I think it massively improves the front end. I own mine so I think I'll try the rs grille, I do like the black edition grille on now but I think I prefer the RS one

I will do mate get the car a week on Friday.. excited is an understatement!

It's a hell of a machine. I sold mine recently and do miss it...

What have you gone for in terms of spec and colour?

It's not a 65 plate in Sepang Blue is it...?? I sold mine to a dealer so would be awesome to see someone on here buying it :p
