I wondered when someone would notice that. 😁

It comes off easily from the outside. Salesman took it off himself while I was driving in.

Rear RS badge and dealership decal need to be removed.

I fell in love with the NY auto show launch car... I HAD to order the green. Iíve never owned a green car before.

I can't stand when they do that. I always tell them that if they put stickers on their cars, to not bother.

Will likely removed front badge too. Rear one was removed as well as rings. Xpel going on and then will install black rear rings.

This color looks the best when the sun shines on it. Looking forward to seeing some pictures of it.

Really?! I've struggled with mine because I want to take it off, but can't seem to. I'm worried I'll use too much force and end up breaking something. I was under the impression the entire grill had to come off. Did you happen to see any of what was done to remove it?

Thanks and congrats again!

Yeah, I'm glad my dealer didn't put on their own sticker. I like having the badges, I just don't like the shiny silver look. My front and rear rings, as well as the rear RS5 badge are black. I'd like to have a black RS5 on the grill too, but removing it entirely would also work.

I didnít see it done personally (was already off when I arrived). But he said that he just reached in and pinched the clip behind the grill with his fingers and it came off.

Iíve seen the article with the grill removal instructions, so I was surprised that it was so easy.

Could you post a link to those instructions, Chris?

I can't find a 'how to' thread on AudiWorld for installing an RS5 grill on my A5. Thanks, in advance.

Congrats and have an absolute blast in it! As I'm waiting for my own pick-up,it's nice to see all the new RS5 rides as well, the excitement leaps off the screen and gets me even more jazzed for my own. That Sonoma is stunning, is the honeycomb stitching in the Nappa leather also green?

I like the picture with the two additional beings that are now #2 and #3 in the list of "Things Daddy Loves Best".
