    RS4 Conversion

    Hi there ppl, some of u may already know but i was in the process of doing a b7 facelift on my b6 cabriolet. iv got the parts (bonnet, bumper, wings, headlights, slam panel) but i came across this car and it has tempted me to do an rs4 conversion instead, i have a friend who wants the parts that iv already got so its tempting me even more lol

    the question i have is, what else do i need or do i just need rs4 bonnet, rs4 front bumper, rs4 slam panel, rs4 front wings, rs4 headlights, rs4 rear wings and rs4 bumper) , is there anything else i may need?

    thanks guys, i hope some of u will be able to help

    The doors are different too between the b6 and b7, the rs4 b7 wings dont line up with the b6 doors....

    according to the conversion howdy_quattro done on his b6, it was not required to replace the doors on the b6 but to cut the b7 wings into b6 so that the wings can house the headlights........im pretty sure it is not needed to change the doors also.......

    Been looking at pictures and i think the doors on the b6 and b7 cab are the same, neither has the ridge that the saloon has and the rear quarters and rear lamps are also the same.

    You'll also want genuine RS4 wheels to fill out those arches.

    You may need to change the Rear panel and def the boot you can use any Cab B7 bonnet (RS4 unit is lighter) and you will need the seels.

    does that mean i can swap my b6 cab rear light clusters for b7 cab ones easily?

    fairly easily, there is a mismatch in the number of lamps in the units, so you need either a load of high value resistors or some adaptor harnesses from kufatec to stop you getting DIS errors.

    physically the lights area a straight swap.

    'docurley' what seals do i need? and which rear panels are u referring to, the rear quarter panels? and does the boot def need to be changed, i havent heard of this being any different? :S

    im in the process of gathering some prices for the rs4 parts, if it works out to be dear, then i may have to give the rs4 a miss, but still do the b7 facelift

    thanks

    Wow I never realised they did not change the rear light set-up so I'm wrong you will not need the rear panel but you will need the side sills which blend in with the wider arches.

    Yep a stock bonnet should be fine and so will the B7 Cab headlights I will guess yes to the slam panel.

    Do the slam panels bolt straight up ?

    Are the RS4 slam panels any different to any other B7 ?

    Are the RS4 saloon wings the same as the CAB ?
