    Jakes b7 Conversion Progress Thread

    Finally going ahead with this after accidentally purchasing a front bumper haha, just doing the front half, thread will not be updated regularly as I'm not rushing.

    Parts owned:
    S-line b7 bumper (from a cab... hope this fits)
    also own some b6 parts to go on including S4 door blades and s-line rear bumper with a b7 RS4 valance (idea stolen from Deano1978)

    Parts to go:
    B7 bonnet
    B7 RS4 grill
    B7 aftermarket DRL headlights
    B6 to B7 light conversion loom (need more info on this)
    B7 wings cutting current b6 wings (or maybe cab wings... anyone know if they line up?)
    B7 2.0TDI slam panel

    Here's the current front



    Planning to have it looking something like this but with different DRL's, RS6 wheels, black mirrors and RS4 grille.



    Please let us know if there's anything else, relevant part links will be appreciated (the cheaper the better).

    Haters leave now kthxdie.

    For the headlights you need to swap a lot of the wires. I did this for my mate by using paperclips to extract the pin from its location. No cutting necessary whatsoever. Let me dig it up for you!

    Trust me I'd definitely go ahead with the conversion seeing as you got an excuse now.

    Im down with you fella

    Yeah seen a few who've done it, Howdy made a good job. No idea on the loom, lights and wings are the main things I'm lost with unless anyone can point more things necessary.

    Looks like a nice project. I am pretty sure that the cab bumper is different to the saloon and avant as the headlights etc are also differ to the others.

    I could be wrong as not looked into

    Good luck and keep us all posted!

    Just a little update; got a loom for a b6 to b7 light conversion from eBay, only issue is it's an xenon one so could be a fun job getting wired and working I'm useless with anything electrical. Plus the lights I bought come with a HID kit so I'll have to work around that somehow... hmmm surely they can't be xenon and HID haha... will probably just sell the lights and buy a new set.

    Another picture to add to the collection:


    Coming along slow thanks to some prick opening his door and knocking my mirror off. Also on the case of the RS4 rear, cut the valance out today

    Thought as much
    Surely I could do away with the yellow wire and they'd work as halogens? Plus HID kit and bulbs (... making them not halogens haha). Or maybe I could use none xenon headlights with the xenon loom swapping the bulbs for xenon's?
    Really don't have a clue how this headlight stuff works haha.
