Ill show some pictures to aid you helping me! also included the part numbers of the bumper and existing grille.

    This is the one I brought, the curvature is wrong and it hits on the cross section of the bumper that goes over the bumper bar. Just struggling to find a grille that is compatible!


    Thanks

    Did you check the old item for a part number, most parts have one stamped on them somewhere.

    The new part looks like an RS3 grill. That won’t fit a prefacelift S3. I don’t think there are any aftermarket ones either that will fit so you need to search for a genuine part.

    Ah thanks prt57, that was my fear. For some reason the eBay part thing said it would fit onto my car! Lessons learned. I’ve ended up buying a second hand one.

    That's not RS3, that's more like a sport, Sline shape for 04-08 cars, so it's preface lift, facelift grills have squarer edges & more plastic on the sides & top as support, fixings.
