What are the chances that the lower grill inserts from the 2016 RSQ3 are compatible with the 2016 Q3 Sline ones with little to no custom work? Awfully similar...

My guess is it's possible - and sensible, but I wouldn't count on it -

Good morning!
I think that they are close however in the pics there appears to be differences in the lower outboard portion of the inserts. I think you would be in for some work....

It's really hard to say if it'll fit but from what I see on various frontal pictures of both vehicles, the RSQ3 grille is a tiny bit smaller, width wise, near the bottom.

Audi could simply bring the SQ3 or RS Q3 to America so we can buy it! BRING IT!!!

I like those intake inserts. Not sure if you can just install them super easy, but it is something to look into. Fingers crossed for you.

The 2016 RSQ3 is very similar to the front of the 2016 Q3. It's just a matter of sizing to see if everything fits and you can probably find the size dimensions online somewhere for comparison.

Why isn't it available in America?

Audi has stated that there is not a market for it in America. But a petition to bring the TT RS over generated over 11K signatures and Audi sold out the entire allotment when they finally offered it. Since the offer a SQ5 now, I would love to see an SQ3 here - maybe 300 hp. That would be very enticing!

There is no such thing as an SQ3, the closest thing you'll get to that is a tune from a reputable aftermarket company and some coilovers like tanqueray got. Though I would absolutely LOVE to see the RSQ3 make its way over here, with that beastly 2.5L turbo inline 5. I love me an inline 5.

But Audi could MAKE an SQ3, like the SQ5, and offer it at a lower price point than an RS. We would still win!

Yeah - NOPE they WON'T fit - the bumper cover (the entire front plastic) is different and while the shape is similar, it is different too - look VERY closely at the RS's lower outer profile and you will see it tails OUT rather than IN as the S-line version does - BUT - the good news is that you can buy a whole new bumper cover (~USD1200) that will fit and then you can buy both the center (USD900) and outer (USD130 each) grills to fit it ...>:D
