Title: RS6 Grill installed
Post by: Chas on December 29, 2007, 11:59:57 PM
Installed my new RS6 Grill onto the hood of my '03 A6. It wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. It's not a straight away replacement for the factory grill. The RS6 hood and grill are very different underneath compaired to the A6 hood and grill.
But that being said, it CAN be done, with the right tools and temperment.

Anyhow, the results.

There is also a lower bumper grill for the RS6 that can be fitted, but that takes a bit more work to fit it in the hole. Maybe later...

Looks great! When i put on my RS4 grill, it added about 5.6hp. I bet the RS6 grill adds AT LEAST 10 (at the grill)!  ;D

The company that sold it to me advertises at least a 12.5HP increase, at the grill.  ;)

And yes, it is much better looking than the factory unit. Now I need to buy the RS6 lower grill and do that mod. It's a bit more involved as the opening on the RS6 is slightly different. It can be done, but it's not as simple as removal and replacement. There will be gaps to be filled ot the edges and some matterial at the top of the new grill nees to be trimmed off to make it all fit.

It's all just time and money!!! ??? :o
