    I don't think any S5 owner I've ever know has done the S5 to RS5 oem grill change; it just doesn't seem to me that S5 owners wanna make their cars look like RS5s. You would most certainly be the first to do so. Cant wait to see how it looks.

    Do you mean grille?.... I believe you have to use a pre-face RS5 grille to fit the pre-face bumper. This assuming the bumper grille opening is the same as it is in the face-lift bumpers (A5,S5 & RS5)

    I did mine too. Followed this video, and it went very well. The only thing I did different is jack up the front and removed both front wheels. The fella in this video is smaller than I am. He just cranked the wheels left / right to get to the connections in behind. I needed as much room as I could. The easiest for me was to get the wheels completely out of the way.

    Good luck.

    Mine was changed out prior to taking delivery of the car. To me, the RS5 grill fits in better with the honeycomb design surrounding the fog lights, as opposed to the ultra-busy horizontal/vertical lines of the OEM grill.

    Next is a thread asking if anyone has installed aftermarket wheels, then after that I’d anyone has lowered one before.
