    Yes they are different unless, iirc, you have an S4 bumper as these all use the earlier type

    I think they're talking about the side mounts, which are differnet for sure.

    Your talking about where the bumper attaches to the shocks i assume?

    Given his other post about the tow bar, i think hes wanting to know about the bumper shocks.

    They are all solid iirc they crush on impact as the welds are designed to crack to absorb impact and crumple !!

    im mainly wondering if there's different bolt holes where they mount to the crash bar.
    ive had a look on eBay at tow bars and they all look the same as mine. none of them had the extra brackets that ive highlited in this picture. so as I say I wondered if there was different style of mounts

    yea im going to get a look at my mates and that way I will be able to get an idea on what I need to make up.
    originally I was thinking there might have been a difference between PFL and FL towbars

    cheers for that Ed wish I had got my finger out and got that off you when you had it up for sale

    on the plus side used the A4 for towing today and the cable ties are still holding the bumper in place for the moment.
