Default RS5 full honeycomb grill

I replaced my stock S5 grille with a gun metal full honeycomb RS5 grille from Europrice today. I also installed a S-Flow kit and Toruing exhaust from AWE.
Wasn't too bad of job for a guy in a wheelchair. Jacking the car up was the hardest part.

Looks great!!! Nice work! How irritating was it to take off the bumper? I have been toying with this mod myself.

It's fairly simple. I found a variety of instructions in here, but none were exactly right for my car. Need T15, T25 torx bits and a 10 mm socket with extaension and ratchet are all the tools needed other than to remove the wheels. Only took me a few hours and I was in no means in a hurry, like I mentioned, the hardest part was jacking up the car for me.
The grille fit perfect, it is an OEM Audi part, not a replica.

I didn't get any video or pics of the exhaust, at lesast the pics didn't turn out.
I watched A LOT of videos and none of them seem to be much different than a stock exhaust, but the AWE exhaust has a different sound and is a little louder than stock. It sounds good and I'm happy with it. My mid pipes would've been a much better if they were about an inch or two longer though, were a pain in the butt to get fit right.

Congrats for a job well done.
Looks good.

BTW, why is it necessary to remove the wheels?

I would assume its to get access to the screws holding the end of the bumper to the cover inside the wheel well.

you must remove a couple of torx screws on the fender liner and fold it back to access the two bolts holding the front bimber cover on and to unplug the fog lights.

Actually no need to remove the front tires. Just turn the tire in one side at a time to give yourself enough room to peel back the lining enough to access the bolt.

I would think a person could easily remove the wheels quicker than it takes to do this method, especially twice for each wheel by the time you put it back together. It takes what? 2 minutes to remove the wheel and have all kinds of room. Also if you have wider tires, this won't work anyway, not quite enough room.

You can also access the 10mm bolts through the fog light apetures

I bought this exact grille from a forum member but have not had it installed yet. I want to do it myself and don't expect to have any huge issues but i don't have the time right now. I have a local dealer who told me they would do the grille and an Alu-Kreuz plate for me for $400. Seems expensive but I know the labor involved. To boot, they offered to give me a loaner for a day. I know it will take me an entire Saturday which i don't have right now due to some home renovations and my OCD work habits so I think I am going to bite.. Thank you for the pics, I was concerned that I wouldn't like the gunmetal on black but that looks great! I also bought some honeycomb material and OEM grilles, I WILL tackle the foglight conversion. That should be a fun little project. Now to time the time for that...

I love the look of the RS grill but Missouri requires a front license plate. Not sure if the plate would look more tacky on the RS grill than the S grill. I guess I could just not put on the plate. (I see cars that don't have them. Not sure if they are harassed by the cops though)
