no the grills had to come off and also what i wasen't quite happy about was that the rebar had to be cut a bit, but you know how performance parts are you have to alway modify something, there;s no such thing as a straight fit.

you know what when i bought my car i wasen't too crazy about the color, but now i love it, mostly because there aren't alot of them around, most of the A4's i see are all silver, nothing wrong with silver, i wanted one but it's nice to be different

ya wiht my godspeed fmic, they sent me a bigger core than advertised, so for the piping to work i would have had to hack the rebar a bunch. but instead i flipped it upside down and it worked perfect, but now the only problem is... its upside down.

well mine i couldn't turn it upside down because the cooler actually mounts the the bumper shocks, so you can only put it in 1 wayhttp://i276.photobucket.com/albums/kk31/crazy1469/knaudib5a418tickit.jpg

Bad part is that only 1/4 of the fmic gets direct air flow. Other bad part is that if you change to a S4 bumper there is no way you can lower it down to fit in the opening.

yep, thats why im pissed about going with it. but thats what you get for 300 but hey atleast it keeps the temps below 32 C even @ ~6800 w/ 55 F temps, so cant hate on the results

Do you have a turbo upgrade? Just checking because FMIC's are pretty much useless on K03's.

A front mount intercooler makes a hell of a diff even on a k03 particularly on a 90deg day. Maybe VT doesnt get as hot as NYC but in the summer when that stock ic gets heat soaked it runs like shit.

no i don't have a turbo upgrade yet...it'll be coming in the near future...i just got this car about 1 month ago so mods have to be done slowly,,,it get really expensive really fast.

I had a pretty noticable difference with the near 100 degree temps here in south GA.

Yeah for real, my car gets so heat soaked in the summer.

Pretty close to what I sell the ER comp kit for, but it doesn't fit under the stock fmic. I am still trying to talk Fred to make the Sport kit for the B5.

incorrect.

it all depends on the size of the intercooler.
