    Had the offer of an rs4 fibreglass replica for cheap. But think he's sold it now so this may be a dead end. To be honest. I wanted an s4 bumper ideally, to fit a FMIC yet stay subtle, but they seem to be rare as rocking horse poo to come up for sale or rediculously expensive... £300+ 2nd hand!!!!

    Sikaflex AT Connect is ridiculously strong not really for cars though. I heard tigerseal is good quite a few people on here have used it to stick on spoilers

    tigerseal is very sticky and strong but it is not what I would call an adhesive, it is more a sealant compound.
    its very thick and dense and unless very warm is difficult to get into a thin layer.

    Sikaflex 252. This is what held my rear bumper Votex attachment on and my sideskirts for about, ohhhhhhh, oh dunno 2 years? Bloody excellent stuff. It was also used to pack out my rear diff mount and gearbox mounts for an extra rigid ride. Cant reccomend highly enough, but does take a while to set.
    !!BINGO BONGO!!

    I believe Grizz will have an S4 bumper shortly that has been modded for FMIC
