Love the RS4 mods.
Where did you get the grille from? Is that the standard S4 fog light brackets and lights?

thx.

I used OEM RS4 mesh. normally, it's expensive, but I found a guy on e-bay and convinced him to sell to me. so I got 4 center panels for the price of two.

Yes, I am using the standard S4 fog lights and brackets.

I had no idea the Rs4 mesh fitted the S4 bar. I'm looking at upgrading mine later in the year.

Looks GREAT!!! I love the RS4 mod! That is inspiring me to convert my S4 bumper over!

One thing, have you thought about painting the grille surround black too? I think it would make everything look more uniform. Either way, looks great though!!!

it's OEM RS4 mesh. got it pretty cheap off a guy on e-bay. that's the only reason i used it. otherwise i was planning on using expanded aluminum mesh.

yah the RS4 mesh works takes some patience but it is doable i did w/ the lft and rt covers and kept the S4 lights as well...subtle but only the discerning eye would notice little details like that...

glad you got around to putting on

you think you can buy theis emblem, shave it down and mount the Quattro badge to it to fit in the RS4 mesh grill?

thats not what I want to do. obviously the RS 4 emblem has a good latch on the back to hold it on to hte grill. I meant shaving the RS 4 stuff off and mounting a Quattro badge with glue or something to the RS 4 badge.

I gotcha'. Sorry about that. Anyway, a good 'adhesive' will more than hold the quattro emblem on the grille. Not really worth the extra effort to me to buy another emblem and modify it too.

Of course, if you want to try it, let us know how it turns out!
