    B9 S4 Lower Grill Mesh

    Just noticed this today. My lower right grill has open mesh whole the lower left has a piece of plastic behind the mesh. Is this intentional or was there an error on the left side? I feel like popping the left side out so they are both open.

    On my '18 there is a heat exchanger on the driver side. I'm sure your car is the same.

    There is one on mine too, is there any reason the passenger side needs to be blocked?

    No reason it needs to be, I wish they were both all the way open! But there isn't an exchange happening over there si they filled it in😒. They gotta do all they can to boost the rs over the s4...

    After having both the RS5 and S4 back-to-back, I can understand why.

    Next up - letís see if I can get that piece out without removing the front bumper. Doesnít look like this will be an option, however.

    probably has something to do with coefficient of drag or the like - nothing needs to be cooled there and aerodynamics are better?
