Where did you get the reversing camera from and is it an easy fit?
I am looking forward to seeing how this all comes together.
nothing will be happening with mine for the next 5 weeks

Found a German seller on eBay. It’ll be a pain in the arse but I’ve done it before on a mk7 Golf R. Lots of interior trim dismantling to route the cables from the tailgate to the front of the car no doubt.

I will watch the install closely as would like to do this too. What does the camera and wiring cost? Do you have a link?

I'll take loads of photo's for you and write up a how-to guide to follow. You will need to code it into the car so it's worth you investing in an OBDeleven dongle if you don't already have Carly or VCDS etc.

UK sellers are selling this kit for anything up to £500 but I got it here. Arrived very quickly as well: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/272685391506

Fitted my new grill yesterday. Managed to squeeze it in before going on a day out boozing with my mates and it was more of a ballache than I thought it would be. Didn’t think I’d finish it in time for heading out but I got there in the end.

God that looks nice. Love this car, every time I see a picture I want one.

I have changed many a grill on an Audi RS, it’s never a quick job, and you realise how well they are put together compared to other brands!

I was going to go naked but decided to put the plate on.

Still working the acid green angle too, it will all come together when finished

I think Audis with no plate just look like their trying a bit too hard. I much prefer an OEM+ look. Plus with your plate being so short it looks great.

I’m going to cut mine down a bit (ordered the wrong size).

Did you paint the crash bar before fitting? I painted mine Matt black, it is near invisible now behind the new grill.

No my new grill came with a cover piece mounted behind it that covers it.
I got the same grill, when mine was first fitted if you stood at the wrong angle. You could see the silver top of the crash bar even with the cover. So the whole grill was whipped off and the crash bar was painted too.

I’ve not noticed that on mine but could well be the case with mine also.

Yeah pretty prompt delivery. Great value compared to some others on eBay etc. I’ll hopefully get around to fitting it sometime over the Easter weekend.

This was waiting for me when I got home from work today. Was too excited not to fit it straight away.

Another top job from Royal Steering Wheels

Now need to send off my S-Tronic shift boot to them so they can make a new one to match the wheel before I fit it and my fancy new knob!
