    RS4 Pick Up

    We have a 51 plate RS4, Misano Red and we are looking at converting it to a pick up. Is there anyone out there willing to help on this project?

    All credits would be given to the company who did the conversion.

    Please e-mail with any leads.

    Since Audi have never made any sort of pick-up (not that I know of at least) this would have to be a total custom job.

    And would be absolute sacrilege to do to a B5...

    you want to speak to this guy. A company done this MK4 golf and they do a really good job 1999 mk4 golf v5 pickup? - Edition 38 Forums
    But personally wouldnt do it to a RS4. Its too special in my eyes. Good luck either way would be interesting to see it finished.

    If there is anyone out there willing to give more than £9000 for it, then we will not consider chopping it. As a pick up, it would be unique.

    Surely it would help to see it first? And please please please don't chop it up!! Some things in life just aren't meant to be, and a pick up RS4 is one of them!

    Why not get a Normal B5, convert it to look like a RS4 and convert it to a pick up it at the same time?

    Keep the RS4 as a RS4.

    Chopping up something as rare as a B5 RS4 would be wanton vandalism - DON'T DO IT!!!

    But it's not rare enough for people to put their hand in their pocket and give sensible money for it.

    It's a high performance car, most people won't want to buy it in today's world, but there are some enthusiasts that will spend the money they deserve you just have to be patient.

    If youre doing all that bodywork just wide body an s4 or a4 then turn that into a pick up.

    B5 rs4's will soon be very rare and desirable and command good money like the Rs2

    You obviously don't appreciate what a B5 RS4 is.

    BTW you can't expect anyone to agree to buy an over 10 year old car sight unseen with no details, no information, no photos, for a sizeable amount of money - if you're serious about selling it as an alternative then place a proper advert in the For Sale area.

    9k is sensible money for an RS4 at the moment!
    To get much more than that you need to have a very special one.
    I paid £9500 for mine and it already had a full Milltek, gutted downpipes, B7 RS4 brakes, Tanoga short shift, H&R ARB's front and back, MRC custom remap and upgraded oil cooler.
    It also has full service history and already had the cams and clutch changed.

    On a slightly different subject, could you please post a photo of yours so I can include or see if it is already on the RS4 register I am compiling? Thanks
