    Hi there
    Ive been thinking of doing this body conversion for a while now, but cant seem to find much about where to begin on the net, ive had a look at the A4 B6 that had its body converted into the RS4 B7 shape, Just wondering if most the parts are bolt on and require little modification the front fenders and bonnet?, Will anything need to be changed in order to fit the front bumper? what else will i need to make it look exactly like an RS4 from the outside?

    thank you
    sorry if this is the wrong section for this

    if you do go for that kit id advise to buy directly from them.iirc the chaps name is Andreas,dont be afraid to barter either,brilliant service when i ordered my bumper,was here within 5 working days no problems whatsoever,quality was top and packaging amongst the best ive xperienced.

    p.s im pretty sure the bumper goes straight on unline the saloon facelift where the hood needs extending.

    If you went the OEM way then doors forward would bolt straight on then you would have to have RS4 rear arches and back panel welded on to complete the look.

    thanks for the info :yes:, After looking at how howdy quattro (http://audi-sport.net/vb/showthread.php?t=56116&highlight=conversion&page=2) did his front wings makes me wonder if ill be able to keep the line with the RS4 wings, As for the rear quarter arches, i cant seem to find them but i read something about there being fibreglass ones, but i cant seem to find anything about them. Anyone able to point in me in the right direction?

    thanks!

    I'm not aware of any FG rear wings but the rear quarters from Audi are around £350 each to buy which is not so bad.
