    Yeah front bumper, skirts allround (although think that one already has the RS4 skirts fitted), wing mirrors, front grille and roof rack bars. Other than that, jobs a goodun i think. From what i hear its not as hard as you may think and the results, well...awesome.

    Because not everyone wants an Avant, which is the only body style the B5 RS4 was available in.

    Parts I used for mine:

    2 x RS4 rear doors
    2 x RS4 rear quarters
    2 x RS4 front wings
    2 x facelift front doors (need trim holes welded up)
    2 x RS4 side skirts
    2 x RS4 front arch liners
    2 x RS4 rear arch liners
    2 x RS4 rear inner arches (steel)
    2 x RS4 front foglamps
    RS4 front bumper
    RS4 front grille
    RS4 cast aluminium mirrors*
    RS4 fuel filler flap
    RS4 front bumper grilles
    RS4 front bumper brackets
    Euro S4 rear bumper*
    RS4 HID headlamps
    RS4 side repeaters
    A4 2000-spec bootlid*
    RS4 front panel

    * These you can do without, depends on how far you're willing to go.

    @ Edward: I bought all my parts new from Ipswich Audi. All came to just under 7,000, haven't got the exact figure. Got all my invoices though.

    Add to the above list, wheels in the right size and offset to fill the arches.

    Ouch! No wonder they're hard to get cheap! But as for the amount of work the rear quarters would be the big headache, the rest'll just bolt on, doors, front end etc, I'd assume anyways! But it's never that simple is it!

    Don't suppose anyone has part numbers for the brushed mirrors and the grille? Mine's a facelift so they should just be a straight swap right?

    Try vagparts.com, got my RS4 grill from them, sure they could get you the mirrors too, but they're not cheap being aluminium and not plastic, part numbers on there too. Or keep a beady eye on ebay, english and german, they both come up fairly regularly.

    Best if you don't. It makes me cry thinking about it.

    Doc's RS4 shell was a German-spec RS4, that had been written off in Germany, brought into the UK and repaired.

    It was denied registration in the UK, and had to be broken. Doc bought the complete car, less the interior, transmission and engine.

    The Avant rear quarter panels have to be extensively cut and reworked to get them to fit the sedan, not a DIY job - I saw mine in the bodyshop during some of the surgery, and was glad I wasn't doing the work.

    Best bet is to keep trawling www.ebay.de and be prepared to either pay exhorbitant shipping costs, or be prepared to hire a van, and drive across France, and into Germany, to collect.

    Can see here how the rear arches from an avant were chopped and welded into Docs car.

    And this is an RS4 rear door. Note a lot more flared to meet the rear arch and also no plastic add on door protector strip.

    http://cgi.ebay.de/Orig-Audi-RS4-B5-...QQcmdZViewItem

    You do however only need the lower part of the door, the yellow section on this one. The upper black window frame and internals unbolt as one piece so could use the existing parts from the saloon.

    That's been for sale since last October. I contacted the seller before I decided to go brand new.

    His price is the same as buying new, and he wanted crazy money for shipping.
