    As a last-ditch attempt at repairing my A4, does anyone know/ have any contacts of someone who may be breaking an a4 with a complete front end?

    I have been struggling to find another a4 like mine, and would rather get mine back as i loved it! ha

    Thanks

    Yes, it's pretty much the whole front end. Sorry for not being clear enough. It'd need to be pretty much a complete donor car, with rear end damage etc. It's a long shot I know, but I was hoping that some of you on here may have contacts (and i'm not on about the stolen to order stuff, lol)

    And an incident you call it...haha. Only joking. I am considering a nice b5 though, the looked after ones look rather nice, and seem to be a fair bit cheaper.

    nooooooooo, are you serious? that has ruined my night lol. Wasn't the one you were breaking a b7 though? And any chance of getting another for me?

    Just out of interest, and hypothetically speaking...how much do you think you'd expect to pay for a salvage a4?

    new panels are not that pricy mate if you have a look at europarts a wing is around £56 pounds and im very sure you can get them for less than that.

    ebay is your best bet for cheap parts right now. its slow selling on there and the sellers know it so the prices are real down, :icon_thumright:

    I will try get the parts list from the garage tomorrow mate. For now I can remember/ know a few.

    Bonnet
    Os front wing
    Ns front wing (possibly)
    Slam panel
    Front bumper
    Head lights (both)
    Air conditioning condensor
    A belt/ fan cowling (sorry that's not more specific)
    Seat belt tensioners (are they only on front seats, or all 5 belts... my wife was driving, with daughter in back so only 2 seatbelt used if that makes a difference)

    And anything else you might imagine would have been smashed in with a front end collision.

    As said I will try get the parts list from the garage. I know that Audi prices came to 3500 for parts alone so there's a fair few. :(

    I have been looking on autotrader all weekend and have found little in the way if replacement for it which sucks, hence why I telly want to rebuild this one.

    Thanks for the numbers Simon! The 3500 is audi prices for parts, the labour from my garage is £900, hence why they are trying to write it off. I agree about the price being able to substantially drop though. I will keep you all informed, and am eagerly awaiting a reply Turkster, haha. PM me if you'd prefer mate?!?

    why not go for a b7 front end, i think they look mint when attached to the rear of a b6? your doing the bodywork anyway so it wouldnt be wasting any parts

    Wouldn't it add labour though, or is it all bolt-on? I dunno about the look of it either, i'm a fan of keeping it a b6 if it's already a b6. hmmm

    thanks!

    Sadly not, it looks like the previous owner tried to put £1 coins in it without opening the tray first...
