Hi, so I have a 2015 S3 8V and am looking to do various performance and cosmetic upgrades, one of which is a black honeycomb front grill without the Quattro logo at the bottom but with black rings built in.
Any advice on what to get with a link would be much appreciated!

p.s. alternative suggestions are welcome

Some suggestions for light mods...
  • If you are keeping the stock wheel then consider Hub-centric Wheel Spacers so that the wheels fill the arches a little better. You would be surprised how much this slight change alters the appearance of the car to be more aggressive. I went with 12mm TPI spacers all round but a popular choice is 15mm back and 12mm wide. This obviously depends on the wheels you have.
  • Remove the snow grate from the stock air intake (presuming you don't live in a location with a lot of snow)
  • Replace air intake pipe to a larger silicone one (Turbo Technics, CTS, etc)
  • Change the stock plastic turbo inlet to a larger forged version. There is a nice comparison write up on the different elbows and intake pipes here. Changing the air intake (for me anyway) did slightly improve the throttle response and you get a nice intake noise when you really push the car (nothing noticeable when you drive normally)
