    Is RS5 to S5 grill a straight swap?

    Having finally seen refreshed S5 in person, I am finding that the thing I hate the most is the new grill. Specifically, it is the horizontal slats that ruin the flow of the car. Would it be possible for people to put the RS5 honeycomb grill into the S5, or would it not fit or require extensive mods? I also really like the All-Road grill since it has vertical slats like the ougoing S5 model. :)

    The S5 and RS5 grills should be the same size for the B9 S5/RS5 so swapping shouldn't be an issue. I've only seen issues when B8 S4's attempting the RS5 grill since the grill was definitely a different dimension but still could fit. I am considering ordering a black RS5 grill for my S5 that should be arriving late August. I don't want people to think I'm faking a RS5 so I definitely want to maintain the S5 logo on the front grill if I do swap. Sometimes I like the RS5 grill, sometimes I don't.. thankfully I have basically 2 months to decide.

    Maybe we should wait a couple more years to confirm.
