    Hi!

    I'm planning to change the appearance of my a4 b5 Audi. I'm planning to do chip tuning, lower it a bit, change head lights and rear lights, and I would like to make my front bumper look like the one from a b7.

    Is the last thing doable? and if it is, can anyone give me some advice ...

    I've searched the web but didn't find any usefull information...any help would be appreciated

    Think I have seen the B7 look front end on a B5, but it didn't look too good.
    Have you done a search on here?

    They look ok from the front, but stick out loads from the side to get that big grill to fit. So yea i agree nasty. That ones had a lot of work too. New bonnet aswell.

    I just had a long discussion with a friend who is a car mechanic and has a lot of experience and he explained to me what amount of work and money will be necessary so I decided to postpone my project and spend my money a bit wiser :)

    I don't blame you. You'll also need to mod the hood extensively to fit with the new grill. Not worth it IMO.

    Found what seems to be a slighty different kit.

    That one just looks like a modified B5 RS4 replica bumper.

    And looks a mess too.

    Look at the bonnet line, where it was sliced. Terrible.

    I'd say not likely.

    The B7 is a mildly facelifted B6. Underneath the outer panels, the frame's the same.
