Am I right in thinking that these grilles are non OEM because the grillle on the RS4 look a slightly different shape?

It's OEM fitment but as you say maybe not look 100% the same. I've ordered the one in the link above now from tcboverstock so I'll have to wait and see. I think ScottishS3 may have one fitted?

Yes it looks very good actually, do they come with the mounting for front sensors do you know?

Yes that's the one I ordered and although it doesn't say so, it does come with the optional fitment front parking sensor holders.

Would it fit a 2010 B8 A4 Avant? If so, I'm interested.

Evening All,

Just received my RS4 grill today, keen to get this fitted soon, however after envious glances from my work colleagues as I offered the new grill upto the car, I got many comments on the fact that the fog light surrounds don't match!

So what am I do, suggestions please, my car is a 2010 B8 S-Line Avant, from what I read so far & searching the net, I've not managed to find much to fit my car, so can someone point me in the right direction?!

I'm intending to get the centre splitter either sprayed wrapped or painted in matching black gloss, thoughts?

Many Thanks, Gareth.

If the motor is an s-line then I don't think there are any aftermarket RS4 style mesh fog grilles, I have the same issue but will likely cut out the flat areas of the fog grille and insert a mesh....
Here's by B8 with gloss black fog grilles

And here's my old B7 with mesh fitted to the fog grilles, this is the mesh I will use !!

Where/how did you paint the fog grills? think I'll do the same initially.

However did find some S-Line specific fog grill in black gloss carbon from OSIR Design USA, however £££!

Have you glossed the centre splitter as well? If so can give me some guidance on price to do, etc?

Regards, Gareth.

Cheers, unfortunately I don't have a mate, lol, so I guess I'm contacting a body shop!

That's strange because the seller says it don't come with them, I messaged him on eBay :s

Have you got parking sensors?

Where do those Parking Sensor brackets fit onto? ECS and Awesome GTI both tell me their RS4 grill for the B8.5 doesn't support parking sensors, but their picture shows those brackets.

Just got the car back and I'm well pleased with how it's looking. It's had the New front grille from tcboverstock fitted & been painted gloss black on the fog light surrounds, lower splitter and rear diffuser :rock:

Looks really good mate,

What was the damage for getting the Fog Surrounds, Splitter & Valance painted?

I'm getting my done early next month, after my new Eibach Pro's & MTEC Black Ed go on next Friday.

They screw into rear of grill. Small screws are supplied. Not the best mounting as the grille mesh can interfere with the sensor itself though can be overcome with some adjustment of the sensors on the mount plates pictured.

My biggest concern with the 'modular' nature is how obvious the emblem fixing brackets and pdc brackets are once fitted. Anyone have any close-up pics looking through the grill? Or am I being too OCD? ;-)
