    The DTM edition was a special run of 250 right hand drive models, all saloons and all in 2005. They had a rear diffusor and an RS4 style front bumper, plus DTM badging, different alloys and tail pipes.

    the dif between the two is cosmetic but its interesting the chassis came up as dtm.. guessing SE and DTM must share same chassis...........

    Yup DTMs were all 220;

    Audi A4 DTM Edition Specs, Pictures & Engine Review - "The Audi A4 DTM features S LINE chassis"

    2005 Audi A4 DTM Edition Price, Specs & More | RSportsCars.com - "which are combined with lowered sports suspension with spring and damper settings unique to this version"

    The New Audi A4 DTM Special Edition - "Lowered sports suspension"

    All these pages say something different regarding the suspention. Audi's take on it when I was dicussing my Special Edition Sline with a tech at Inglostadt when I visited in Sept was that the DTM and SE Sline all had the same suspension and chassis components apart from stiffer shocks/spring settings. Hence why the Special Edition / DTM may have come up with the same code. And that was straight from an AUDI AG technical expert rather than some franchise dealership monkey.

    The DTM is such a nice looking car! I have also been looking into retro fitting the DTM front bumper to my car, being an avant I can't fit the rear bumper :( I have seen a fair few retro fits on various different forums, So it does look like the fit straight on.

    Have a ganders on ebay, I noticed a full DTM kit on there for sale when I looked a few days ago.

    EDIT: here is a good example of a retro fit, can't remember what forum I found it on:

    AFAIK, i think thats from Audizine!

    Pretty sure i've seen it on that forum....Not to keen on the vents on the bonnet, or the yello-ish lights but his car is sweet non the less. The brakes are HUGE!! and rims look sweet :) Love white cars.

    If its the same fire damaged one on ebay as I have seen, the dark blue one, then both the bumpers are already sold, well thats what they told me as I gave them a ring call about a week ago.

    They are exceptionally expensive, the ones I've seen are about £450 for the front and £300 for the rear. With painting then you are talking a shedload of cash.

    ok bit of an update for you guys rang audi today and asked about the dtm bumpers
    was very helpfull suprisinally lol said as long as get a dtms chassis number it shouldnt be a problem
    as he said he needs this to cross reference the part number to ensure they fit perfectly against my chassis number as he said the support bar behind the bumper may be required also. so the search is now on for a dtms chassis number lol so i can get a price
    on this front there one for sale in a garage near me so ill take a trip down there n borrow the chassis number lol lol

    Just for info, the fog inserts for the DTM bumper do not have any fog light holes so if you want to keep your front fogs you will need to dremmel the inserts.

    Bet you won't be so lucky with the front though. No bargains to be had there.

    Does anyone know if the RS4 grill fits the DTM bumper??? Reason I ask is I've researched these and never came across a picture of the two together.

    Front bumper from TPS is around £295 where as Audi want something like £390??? i did have the exact prices but misplaced the paper i had with them on now but your looking at nearly £100 saving on each item give or take a few pounds. didnt check inserts but cant be more than what Audi are asking for them(around £20 each)
