Hi guys and gals! I'm new to the forum and this is my first post. I tried to search for the answer to my question, but I didn't find anything. I'm a proud owner of an Audi A4 B8 2008 and I'd like to modify it a bit, starting with the honeycomb grill, which gives the car an extra "pow!". The thing is that when I look up the grills all I get is grills for models 2009+, so the question is: will it fit onto my 2008 B8? I read somewhere that for this.particular model an RS5 grill would fit but I'm really not too sure about that... Thanks a bunch in advance for your replies!

10 second search found them on ebay. 2006-2008 RS4 grilles. Then you can look at all the specialty suppliers like europarts etc. Its easy to buy anything these days. Just depends what your prepared to spend Lantiss.

Thanks for the reply chucky1. I did the same search, but all I get is grills for B7, and I have a B8. I guess it wouldn't fit my model, would it?

Well Lantiss you are lucky. I'm sure you will be able to get an RS grille but it seems your car is on the cusp of a model change. The B7 8E/8H ran from 2004-2008. The B8 8K began production from 2007 till now. I'm in Australia so I source most of my stuff in the US if it's not here. I'll try help you with this. Plenty of guys here know heaps more than me and where to get these in UK.

Yeah, that's exactly it - the model between the two models. To be more precise, the model I own is AUDI A4 (8K2, B8) 2.0 TDI (105 KW / 143 HP), 2008. Thank you for your help, much appreciated. I think that the RS4 2009+ grill should be fine, but I'd rather be sure than spend ~£200 on a part that actually doesn't fit.

I gotta go out but I had a quick net search and went to EuroSport tuning. In the US, but you can at least see what they look like specific to your model. I just put your spec in and up they came. Sure you can get these at home. Have fun.

I found the grill that I'm after on the site you provided and it says "This fits Audi A4 years 2009-2012", so I'm still looking for that 2008 one lol

Hi Mate

Here's an ebay link below showing you the RS4 grill from 2008-2012. Hope this helps.

You could search ebay and ask them a question if your not 100% but all the grills for pre-facelift/facelift B8's are the same there is no difference.

The first two don't specify B7 or B8 Lantiss, but there are lots of suppliers of these. Ask the question, they will be on to it. Postage is the killer from the US. Better to find in UK.

There is no difference between the 2008 B8 and 2009+ B9 grilles.

Thanks guys for all the answers. So basically, if I buy a 2009+ B8 grill it should fit the 2008 model without any problems? I read somewhere that there could be a fixing issue and that I should get a mounting bracket for it. Better ask the sellers on ebay then.

Sorry Lantiss, I'm not sure. Contact Audi parts specialists too. Maybe not eBay. If it was me thats what I'd do. I'd be on to a few of them. A grille is pretty complicated, wait till you try putting one on. Its gotta be the right one.
