    Wahahaha NO! It's basically a wrap that joins the bottom grill and top grill to make it look like the newer models :-o

    That's a fiberglass Hofele bumper, looks ok in pictures but the nose sticks out a fair bit over the lights in side profile. Just convert the front to an actual B7 RS4 if you want to go through the trouble as either way it'll be an expensive not so simple cutting job.

    I have seen people use plastidip or paint to paint the bumper black between the upper and lower grill to give the impression of having the big grill but it just looks wrong but not as wrong as that ridiculous Hofele kit.

    As mentioned........do a proper B7 conversion (bonnet, bumper, headlights and chopped wings) or is will look awful.

    you can buy a B7 cheaper than you can a B6 so why would anyone bother trying to make a B6 look like a B7 ?

    I looked at 4 B7 A4 tdi's before I bought my B6

    you can pick up 2.0 tdi Se on 05 plates for under 4 grand as I looked at 4 of them.
    2 of them in dealers.

    I didn't want a 2.0 though as they all seem to die of oil pump failure
    saw 2 1.9 Se models and nearly bought one of them.

    just looked on Autotrader

    there are 9 B7's between 3900 & 4000 and 7 B6's at same price.

    No idea why but deffo cheaper to sell your B6 and buy a B7 instead of converting the front.
    That's my opinion anyway ;)
