Default eBay bumper and Rs5 grille doesnít fit my 2019 S5 coupe


.Just got my 2019 Audi S5 coupe few week ago. I take my car to the shop just found out the eBay RS5 grille doesnít fit my car. The grille is way too close to the crash bar. What to do now? I saw EMD AUTO THEY OFFER Rs5 grille but Iím afraid is not gonna fit again. Please help me out .

eBay RS5 grille .

Donít have enough space to put sensor back on. Too close to the crash bar.


OEM and EBay Rs5 grille sensor locate

EMD grille fits fine. Many threads in this forum discuss the + and - of it vs eBay ones.

I have yet to do this mod but donít u usually remove the foam padding thatís on the crash bar and then paint it black? Thereís a big thread in this already. Iíd suggest u read the whole thing before giving up on the grill you have. Good luck. Let us know how it works out.

You will have to lose the foam and even then it will be a tight fit with sensors, which is why the EMD grill comes with the right angled sensors.

In the thread that S5man24 referenced but this is the normal procedure for the RS-Style grille installs:


Stock, with foam padding





Grille setup with foam padding removed and bumper painted flat black



As always, YMMV, depending on what your seller sent you.

That's the "V1" grill with the two different hex sizes and a higher sensor mounting location. Even with the "V2" grill with the lower sensor mounting location I still needed to notch the bottom edge of the crash bar about 1/8" to prevent touching the original dark gray OEM sensor. With both grills you have to remove the foam section and with the "V1" grill AFAIK you need to buy flat sensors like on the outsides of your bumper in order to fit the grill.

So you mean the only option is buy from OEM?

My EMD grille was a very tight fit even without the foam. In fact I had to kind of push the grille into the car to screw it in.
