    Hi, just stumbled upon your A4 B7 conversion, this is something I also plan to do.

    Hey! Its one hell of a conversion and looks fantastic, top marks!

    I noticed you source a genuine B7 bumper and bonnet/grille assembly ?

    Did the front bumper and bonnet bolt on without any modifications to the parts or the car and did all contours align up ?

    I see you have cut the wings and welded the B7 wing sections on to enable the B7 lights to fit.

    I'm wondering whether it would be possible to install the B7 bumper without chopping the wings and maybe somehow using or modifying the original headlights or to install the latest offering of headlights from:

    I would appreciate your advice please

    Aparently Iltek cars need no brakes!!! IF this is a real car why go to the trouble of photoshopping out the brakes???

    Have a look on Seat-cupra.net for tuning tips, there is plenty on there for 1.8t tuning including the GT28RS turbo conversion. I can personally recomend Performance Torque, Will did lots of work on my Leon Cupra.

    hi mate first of all you are the man!!!! great absolutely superb job!!! I know it is probably an old tread but I wanted to know if it would be possible for you to send me by message the parts that I need for the conversion and some little hints on how to cut the wings please man I would really appreciate if you can do that, I am currently working on a perfect donor for this conversion, I bought a 2002 Audi A4 V6 that was involve in a car accident and the whole front is missing so it would be perfect if you can give me some ups about how to do this job because it looks great mate. In regards thanks a lot for your help

    Bonnet
    Bumper
    2x Wings
    2x Headlights
    Slam Panel

    Is this all required for the conversion?

    Do you require B7 impact dampers?
    What was with what I read about headlight wiring modifications?

    Someone must have a full guide somewhere surely

    It was probably an accidental dislike, I've seen that happen a few times.

    A few people have done that over the years. What you say makes sense Simon, but if you've got the time and the skills to do it yourself it's a LOT cheaper than an RS4 would be, especially for a younger driver on the insurance etc.

    Hmmm

    does look good - and a job well done fella

    but not to my taste - personally i think the B6 front end looks sweet enough if you can stick a Votex bumper on. Id rather wait to get the B7 when and eventually.
