    S4 Front Bumper on an A4 ??

    Hi all!

    Has anyone removed a standard A4 (B6) front bumper and fitted an S4 (B6) front bumper? they look almost identical in shape but im not sure if they are fixed differently.

    I bought the S4 bumper about six months ago and I think its about time I fitted it (no more room in the bedroom LOL), The only problem that I know of is the new S4 bumper has headlamp washers and my standard bumper doesnt, will I need to replace the washer bottle as well or can I just 'plumb in the pipes' to make it work.

    Plus has anyone got any pics of an A4 / S4 without their front bumpers fitted?

    Cheers!

    Mike,

    Don't have an answer for you. However, I've been looking into fitting the rear S4 bumper to my Avant. audiworld.com has a lot of info on the S4 bumpers and there are people on there that have fitted the front and rear bumpers from the S4 onto the A4. So you could try there. One thing I did notice on AW was that the fogs in the S4 bumper are different to the A4 ones - so did you get them with the bumper? If not you might have to buy them.

    I'm currently trying to get hold of an s-line front and S4 rear. Hoping to get my mits on them in the next few weeks.

    It you're doing this sort of work then I recommend you get the Bently factory CD.

    Mike,

    Are you going to be the guinea pig for trying the ebay CD's then [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ok.gif[/img]

    If they are any good I will follow suit.

    Lucky Scotty doesn't need fancy bumpers as his came standard [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Ahh well maybe I'll afford an S4 one day! For now the bumpers will have to do.

    Mike - make sure you post up some pics once you get the S4 bumpers on - I'm v interested in seeing how it turns out. Cheers!

    Saw your price for getting them painted plus other stuff - sounded very reasonable.

    Re: S4 Front Bumper on an A4 ??

    Yep, I know the guy who owns the garage so this helps, Im dropping my car off next weds and then im off to spain for a week, hopefully when I get back it should be ready, well, except for fitting the front bumper.

    I had a good look at the bumpers today, the aluminium cross member which fixes the car to the bumper cover (the plastic bit) is very different, but modifying shouldnt be a prob, my biggest headache is the washer bottle issue.

    I'll take some pics as I go along !

    I'm currently working on putting the S-line bumper on my 2002A4.

    Many have put the S4 on and it's a direct fit. the fogs and grilles are different and are very expensive. If you take your time and look around the bumper you can figure out how to take it off. It's pretty easy to see how it comes a part.

    S4 front bumper is a straight swap, remove old bumper, remove support bracket, fit to S4 one and then bolt on.....

    However, you will need to buy new fog lights, standard A4 ones will not fit and after 2 months of searching I bit the bullet and got them from the dealer....... the grilles are also different as well, did mine last year and it looks great, especially with an all black front grille to match..

    Where did you get the rear from and how much was it, been trawling e-bay for months for one for my avant.....
    03MY 52 reg 1.9 TDi 130PS Quattro Sport Avant - 170bhp remap, RNS-E+OEM bluetooth, B7 wiper arms/blades, 4300K HID+nightbreakers/LED sidelights, rear tints, new lights all round, new front/rear screens, frt armrest, s-line kit, cruise/DIS, B7 gearknob/aluminium trims, parking sensors, black grilles, RS4 RARB, S4 front end, black 18" RS6 alloys

    Still waiting..... S4 rear bumper, exhaust tips, coilovers, leather recaro's.... phew...
