Default RS4 grill for b8.5 s4

Hey guys I just purchased this for my 2013 phantom black pearl s4.
http://www.ecstuning.com/ES2627563/

I will be posting before and after photos. Obviously we all know what the stock looks like but it's a good comparison anyways

Can't wait to see it man.

Question... has anyone seen this grill with front license plates? I've always wanted to put this in my S4; I love the clean look of it. But I live in MA and cars here are required to have both front/rear plates. I think front plates would look a bit weird.

Has anyone seen a silver or chrome mesh version online?

The only ones sold online seem to be the ones with a black mesh and silver or black surround. But the OEM ones have a silver colored mesh.

Default installed pics of grille

Sorry for the delay but here is my car before and after with her new black honey comb rs4 style grille with chrome surrounds. The crash bar is painted a flat black, which was clutch to the whole project. Thanks to Jason Fennessey at Speedlife Motorsports, the grille came out perfect. Check his website out at speedlifemotorsport.com or give them a call at 978-494-4104. Thanks guys

Looks great! I was all set to get one then figured I would do it at the same time I do a tune and pulley.

Question....is everyone painting the metal bumper while its on the car, or removing it to paint?

Thank you Cash. I am actually looking into an electronic plate holder that hides under the bumper and with a push of a button will bring the plate up. This is for purposes of insepection stickers and police who were not pulling me over for no front plate. Otherwise I will just go for as long as I can until I get in trouble. I know stupid.

Thanks Kent, but I'm unsure what you are referring to. If your talking about the sliver crash bar shown in pic 2, it was painted with a flat black paint before the new grille was attached.

I have not seen anyone with the silver or chrome mesh as you would see on an actual rs4. I'm sure you can find them for $800-$1000 at oem price but I wasn't willing to spend that for a grille. The build quality of this grille is good, but the only problem as most have posted are the emblem re-install.

Default RS4 grill

I wonder how it would look with a license plate mounted where the stock one is?

WOW! That will be some crazy James Bond type stuff right there!

I feel your pain. Laws in my province require a front plate as well. Hideous!

Default Call Me Crazy

I am a purist...when I drove a BMW I would diss all those guys driving 325, 328, 330, and 335is but modifying them to look like M3's.

This just smacks of that....an RS4 grill on an S4 is like flared fenders on a 328i or an "M" badge on a 335i...its just wrong.

Sorry...if you want an RS4 grill buy an RS4

I somewhat agree, but they don't offer it.....

I see where your coming from but in no way do I want a wagon, sport wagon, crossover, or whatever you want to call it. Plus it not being available kind of hinders it too. Plus, its not like I put the rs4 badge on my car. That would be a different story.

How are you planning to mount the license plate? Can I see a pic with the license plate mounted?
