    RS5 conversion on A5

    Started this project this week. Got the complete front bumper and it's currently getting primed for paint while waiting on the side skirts and back bumper to arrive. I'll try and update the thread with the progress and photos.

    Any helpful feedback or info will be welcomed. No need for any negative replies. Thanks

    @ Gavin, the sills are the right colour.

    @ neebwon, will the RS kit fit direct without any cosmetic tweaks. Sure there were differences in the arches at both ends (flaring) which meant it wasn't direct fit. Intrigued to see how the project goes.

    @gavin front and back bumper arrived from Germany and side skirts purchased local. Now god knows if they were flood damaged or not!

    @warren_s3 cosmetic tweaks will be needed for sure as they aren't a direct fit. Let's see how we get on!

    Just ordered 20"x10 Vertini magic concave wheels image.jpg with 20mm spacers. Should have them by next week. Will update with pics.

    It was meant as a joke over the flood damaged then stripped RS5 a few topics below this one.

    So yeah, bumpers fitting and measurements were done last week and they are getting the modification done to them now. It's all done in the spare time so it's going slow. Meanwhile I got the 20" wheels put on so am adding the photos. image.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpg

    Think A5OC is a bit of an oasis when it comes to out of the ordinary mods. There are some highly tuned cars here, but nothing in the lines of what I've seen you, Cuppa and a few others doing on A5OC!

    It will be interesting to see how you are going to fit the sideskirts as on the rear rs wings they fit in a recess so they are a flush fit so you would have to just bond them to the body which means they would not look right IMO all so the front wings on the Rs5 step out ?

    I think modifying cars is very addictive this is the first car Iv ever had done trouble is with me I like it to look exactly right and that's where it cost money but it's nice to see other people doing similar projects

    Looks like a good job but I would feel a bit depressed if a real RS5 cabrio pulls up at the lights and you're sitting there in your derv

    I think Tony's car is a 3.0V6T with Stage III APR supercharger kit so he'll have the hustle to go with the muscle! Agree though, would hate to have a car that was show and no go.

    93T if you dont mind me asking, how much has the full conversion cost you?

    I have the 08 S5 (v8) and thinking of getting the TTS supercharged kit.. However £12k is a lot to cough up in one go, wonder if they do finance lol

    I would not recommend doing the rear arches very hard job we used all genuine panels and we had to modify the inner arches to make them fit as the rs5 ones just would not sit right all I can say is have a open cheque book as we went well over budget as we hit loads off problems
