Pretty cool if you have an RS5., but then you wouldn't need a Chinese knockoff grill.

Lame otherwise IMO.

I get the chinese knock-off point. I've seen so many B8 & 8.5's with the RS5 knock off grill, where the RS5 emblem has been removed.... and thought it looked pretty good.

I am very on the fence about the stock S5 grill....

Well, it is only $350 - if you think you'll like it, give it a go1

If it doesn't turn out good, just eBay it for $250.


(me personally, I'm not into it, but that's just me -everyone is different)

The honey comb mesh is meant for an RS Audi, it makes the owner look desperate otherwise. at least my opinion on it

Looks like the bottom part of the knockoff is a bit different than the original:

It won't fit the S5 or A5 B9

On the B8/C6 S Cars the grille left a lot to be desired in design compared to the RS version. Now the S grilles are so much better, I dont feel the desire to swap to the RS grille.

Only a handful of people know what an RS5 is and even fever people know about which grills go on which Audi models. I think most people will put them on because they look nicer than the factory "Ford Fusion" looking grill, not because they're trying to convince people they bought a higher priced trim option of the Audi A5.
