    No, apparently a different shape. You can see how the boot of the B6 and B7 avants 'cut' differently into the bumper.

    It would be interesting if someone modified one to fit, I think B7 bumpers are very nice 1 piece items, a lot like B6 S4's, and plenty on ebay, unlike B6's which have hardly any decent 2nd hand parts available.

    yeah thats why i was asking as ive noticed too thats theres plenty of cheap b7's that look nice and i really like the bottom middle bit thats in black plastic,shame that coz theyre so much cheaper too rather than pay silly money for an s4 bumper!

    Yeah I think the S4 bumper is miles ahead of other bumpers available for the B6, but very expensive and hard to get. I'm sure someone with a bit of talent could cut a B7 bumper in two, mate it with a B6 one (and fill the seam) to create a mould and make copies of it.

    I've nearly bought a b7 rear bumper a couple of times thinking it was a b6 s4 one. It would be nice if they did fit.
