    S4 Avant S4 Saloon rear bumper, what's the difference?

    Interested in getting the S4 rear bumper someone is selling bumper, he thinks it is for an Avant (part no. 8E9807511F). Is there any difference? will this bumper fit on a saloon?

    Anyone know

    I don't think it'll fit. The saloons are a different shape, have a longer distance from rear wheel to back. I made this mistake before and baught a saloon rear bumper (the guy didnt specify what it was for and i took a chance).
    Revo'd, Tinted, RS4 Honeycomb Grill, ABT Front bumper, 9 x 19" Bentley Continental Alloys.

    I thought there would be a difference but was not 100% sure, just needed to find out if the part no related to a saloon or an Avant, Audi won't tell me the part no.

    I've not got etka handy, but I think 8E9 refers to Avants, and 8E5 to Saloons.

    As mentioned they're not compatible unfortunately.

    Maybe if one came up dead cheap, prefer a front one though really as plans have slowed somewhat due to work cutbacks etc - never say never though

    Check out the link Basspower has posted, this is the one. I think it's for an Avant he reckons that it say so on the bumper.

    Its very hard to find S4 info on etka. If you look at the link posted its for an A4 as it has the two part bumper, not the one part bumper of the S4.

    ive noticed the lights on the saloon are a little higher too,, meaning the upstands under the lights which wrap round the tail gate would overlap the bottoms of the lights if a saloon bumper was fitted to an avant!
