    Hi - sorry if this has been done to death but couldn't find much via a search.

    As a previous A4 S line Avant & A3 DSG S line owner I have decided to sell my BMW 320CD and go for a B6 cabriolet - once purchased I will get a remap, 19" RS4 wheels and HOPEFULLY the B7 grill - any ideas on where to get one and the process I would need to follow, the car is likely to be Phantom Black

    Thanks in advance:icon_thumright:

    heres a link mate http://www.hofele.com/design/en/Audi_A4_Cabrio/audi_a4_b6_8h_cabrio_front_bumper_elegance.html

    Ive done the same but with a saloon atleast you dont have to add an extension on this coversion looks like it should be a direct replacement. good company to deal with easy comunication,

    I have dealt with the guys at Hofele before, they will paint it but they don't normally like sending it painted ! All the stuff I have seen has been good quality. At least this conversion allows you to keep your B6 headlamps rather than doing the full on B7 front end.

    I'd highly recommend Hofele nothing but a great service from Andreas the sales manager,received my Hofele bumper all in time stated packaged to the highest standard had a tow bar cap missing which was sent out to me straight away after alerting Andreas via email no ifs no buts.:icon_thumright:

    Gotta say, the cabrio version looks so much better than the saloon/avant version. If the saloon version looked like that, I'd jump at it.

    I'd love to do this conversion but due to my cackhandedness will not even think about attempting it.

    Surely this conversion would mean replacing the bonnet of the B6 as itsweeps down between the headlights?

    I just read the installation guide, TBH I think it wouldn't be long before the cracks started appearing between the extension abd the bonnett due to the uk roads and my sport spec suspension.

    Anyone done a proper facelift conversion, I know a guy who done it on his vectra, cost him 400 quid from ebay for genuine Vauxhall parts and he was lucky enough to get the front end of a black Vectra VXR, his was a pre facelift black vectra Elite, so no spraying just a lot of unbolting then bolting!

    Seen it a couple of times and had a really close look at all the gaps etc, it looks brilliant!
