    S4 front wing versus a4 front wing

    I need to change one of my front wings on my 1998 S4, am i right in thinking the front wings on the a4 and the s4 are the same. The only visual difference i can see is some a4s have an Audi badge under the side repeater

    the Audi badge was only fitted to very early A4's.

    So long as the A4 wing matches the era or your S4 one (ie either 1998 to 1999 or 1999 to 2001) then it will be identical.

    Thanks mate, how would this forum survive without your fountain of knowledge? You've just got to sort my Vagcom issues now

    think i'll have to find a forum member close to me who can try and connect theirs to my car to try and see where the fault lies

    Also, out of interest on the doors, will facelift doors fit with no problems? i need to change 2 doors so i just might change all 4 doors and both front wings for full facelift items. Any issues here? Will a non electric window rear door take my electric regulator OK etc?

    Tailgate is tricky actually. The facelift tailgate uses electronic pop. Prefacelift has pneumatic lock and mechanical push button to open the tailgate.

    Prefacelift locking pump probably wont support the electonic pop either.
