    SHOW AND TELL:- HOFELE BODY KIT

    Well a fellow member on here A4 TC (my neighbour) has decide to go one better than my reiger kit and install the HOFELE RS4 B7 Front end to his B6 after he seen my reiger kitted B6 i think i forced him into spending his daugthers inheritance on his bumper......it aint cheap but its well worth it i think.

    ...ive took some pics they are poor, ill get some better ones when the sun isnt so direct......

    I like the look of the new RS 4..

    I dont like the look of B6s trying to look like the RS 4 though.

    Infact the more I look at it the more I dislike it.

    I agree. There's a red B6 taxi up around Aberdeen that has RS4 badges on it. Twat

    Ive always said why try and make a B6 look a B7.....But Im liking it very much so!!
    Its got the attitude look at front, I prefer the Back end on a B6 to a B7 and I like the front end of a B7 better than the B6 so best of both worlds for me.

    Very Costly though is it??

    Its down to taste aint it really.

    So come on then, Tell us......Whats the damage???

    I think it looks fine too. I'd like to see one on a red or silver car though.

    Linky





    940 for the kit + painting and fitting.

    You use the original bonnet and bond the nose cone to it.

    Thats exactly wot i think dont like the backend of B7 but like the front end and it updates the look of the car. You can choose different front grills too like the S4 grill, Wots the damage not too bad I think heres the list

    bonnet from scrap yard 50
    bonnet catch 16
    Hofele kit and postage 720
    spraying and fitting 450
    total 1236


    Just realised you can even save a few more quid of the kit by when you do order, do not order the RS4 grill ( 128 ) and fog light covers ( 28 ) try and source them here because they are the geniune items of the RS4. Seen cheaper grills on ebay and classified section on here.

    I got it direct from manafacturer in Germany dont worry about the language barrier the emails and the brief talk I had with the guy over the phone speaks perfect english. I even threw in a couple of deutsche words in my emails and the guy thought I knew German hehehe.
    As for any alterations you dont have to I just got a scrappy bonnet to use if I didnt like the finished look it was a simple swap back and the Hofele kit would be in the classified section for sale. The bumper is a direct replacement and the fitment is perfect, the main part of the work is bonding on and smoothing the extension on to the bonnet once done theres no going back to original(hence why a scrap bonnet was used)
    You guys should check out hofele.com they have pictures of customers cars on there, I especially like the white avant(the kit imo looks better on a avant)
    Overall the job took 5 days and very happy with the results it also looks better in the flesh than on any pictures mine included.

    Got to say, that kit is growing on me. I wasn't too keen on it at first, the nose "cone" section looks too much like the new Volvo S40. It's the distance between the inside edge of the headlights and the grille that I'm not totally at ease with yet, but as I say, it's growing on me.

    1 question:

    When you open the bonnet, does the whole grille lift up with the bonnet? I can't make out where the bonnet ends and where the bumper and grille starts. Any chance of a pic with the bonnet in the open position plz?

    However I'm not taken with the RS4 front end job on a B6. Somethings are best left alone.

    Quite like, but as everyone else says, no RS badges. No problem with having a sporty kit, but not to try and change your car into something it's not...

    Awesome GTI have a demo 1.8T Avant with a 340bhp output (larger turbo amongst other choice mods) with this front end on also, in Black too. Very nice.

    The whole grill does indeed lift up but now you get a liittle hook to open the catch because the original B6 catch is not long enough .
    The kit does give it a slight volvo look but like i said in earlier post it looks better in the flesh.

    Definately no RS badges on my car even though I did get the RS badges included, just stuck some subtle S badges on. As for making it into something its not was not the idea I just wanted to give the car a more updated look and something different from everyone else.

    And you've succeeded ! Nice work...

    Was tempted in buying McGough's Reiger front bumper for my S4, but not sure how this would look on an S4 really... Am generally quite happy with S4's appearance apart from the rear Avant spoiler, which is basically the same as a basic model, not even an S-Line one...

    Am also buying new wheels, but am trying to work out whether to buy 19s or 18s with suspension/lowering mods instead...

    Was going to, but it's just not the right decision at the moment. The mods I'm currently doing will keep me happy for a while, and will allow some fun on track too. Hoping to get an RS4 (B7) next year, hopefully the prices will have dropped a bit by then too !

    RS4's as quick, more comfortable, has 4 proper seats, and 'cheaper' to run. If I could then I would !

    Maybe when B7 RS4's are down to c£30k, I might be able to pick up a 996 (3.6) by then for c£20k !! But by then I'll be retired too !!

    Back to topic

    All right guys been gettting afew pms this week about this bumper conversion so rather than answer them individually Ive resurected this thread and included some new pics and how the bonnet now opens.





    This is the hook you need to open the bonnet catch with which is included in the kit.
