    S-Line bumper conversion

    Hi Guys<br>
    <br>
    Just completed bumper and headlight conversion for my B7 s-line cab! Looks better for it but just a couple of quick queries - I have the 1.8t with the single intercooler and the air guide for this is behind the left fog light grill. However, the right fog light grille has nothing but exposed pipe behind it. Is there something I've missed in the parts list?<br>
    <br>
    2. I need the number plate bracket to complete the conversion. Can anyone recommend anywhere to get it on the cheap. Have searched ebay to no avail!<br>
    <br>
    I will try and upload some pics to give some clarity to the first point<br>
    <br>
    Cheers!

    This could be interesting.

    I've got a 2.5tdi with S-Line front bumper conversion and I've just found out today that my drivers side foglight grill is the wrong one for the 2.5. The one on mine is fully enclosed but I have an intercooler behind which needs airflow.

    Maybe we could swap?

    Sounds like the most sensible idea! Is yours a B7 bumper?

    Yeh, it's the B7 one. I'll see if I have a pic somewhere and could you do the same if possible.

    Quick question - sorry to hijack a little bit. Are the fog lights on the B7 the same on all models so S-Line and non-S-Line etc?

    Thanks mate. Do you know if the S-Line ones will fit the DTM front end model or RS4?

    the se can fit the s-line
    the DTM doesnt have fog lights
    and the rs4 use the same fogs as the s-line
    but if your thinking of fitting a rs4 bumper you need the front wings aswell
    as its wider

    Interestingly, the enclosed foglight covers have a clip off back, so infact you can make it into the airflow type.

    Likewise, if you want to block it off, you just need the back piece, not the whole grill.
