    why won't this fit my facelift 2.5tdi avant.....

    for the past year of my a4 ownership, i'd been led to believe that the front bumper was the same
    so why wont these fit the avant models....

    They will fit avant models but some serious work is needed as it is just a cover made from crap GRP which involves removing the crash bar from your existing bumper to that bumper, please dont be offended by my comment but why on earth would you fit anything that is made from GRP, id rather spend 100+ notes on a votex lip spoiler than that thing if your going to change it save the cash and buy a rieger rs4 or a genuine used S4 bumper !!

    As said above^^^GRP is not a great product for lasting, especially on the front of a car, and its doesnt look the best.

    I had bought a GRP unit for mine, but it was the Dietrich which is the best rep on the market, and cos my car isnt a daily, so was taking the chance. At 275 quid it certainly isnt cheap and i made a massive loss on it when i got another bumper, sold it for 100 i think and it was unused on the road.

    I'd either mod you own unit, or look for oem upgrades if possible.
