    cab bumper fit saloon

    Pretty sure it's been covered before but searched with mixed results, are they interchangeable.

    Are you saying you've bought a B6 Cabriolet bumper that you want to fit to a B7 saloon? If so, then whilst I'm no expert, I'd be very surprised it if fits. That said, I've been surprised before, and I've definitely been wrong before.

    b7 cab bumper for a b6 saloon, need wings, bonnet etc but supposedly the whole front fits, apparently the b6 cab and b7 cab have the same size wings b6 saloon and b7 saloon have different size wings though, can anyone shed light on whether cab wings would line up on a b6/b7 saloon? (would make the job easier if they do)

    so your doing a B7 front on the B6 ?
    you need all front end
    bonnet bumper wings headlights grills etc

    cab wings dont have the same lines as the saloon/avant

    Can't figure whether they're b6 or b7 lines though, THINK (judging by pictures) they're b6 lines hmmm, would make it allot easier if I could use cab wings because lots of people doing the conversion have to cut b6 wings with b7 wings to make it look right. Not sure about cab wings fitting on a saloon either, guessing it would be the same.

    cab wings do fit the saloon just diffrent lines
    if your going b7 on b6 you will need to cut the wings up to get the correct lines

    Cheers, anyone know if they're different lines altogether or same as b6 saloon or b7 saloon, trying to avoid cutting wings if possible.

    Bez, you're a very handy person to know
