    I went for the CX Racing one, the end tanks and pipes are modified to allow for keeping all of the bumper grills

    Before, with RS4 coolers

    After, the oil cooler is now located where the nearside cooler was

    All finished!
    The difference is very noticable, it pulls so hard now, cant wait to get the map adjusted, its going to clear 500bhp no problem :D

    All work done by Bahnstorm in Northampton, very pleased with everything, Aiden never disapoints!

    I like your bumper.
    same as mine but your mesh looks better.

    I didnt do it, but it was done with RS4 style mesh from ebay, its a near perfect match to the genuine RS4 grill mesh.
    Infact, it matches better than the grills from a genuine RS4 bumper!

    A few more pics for you:

    Cheers!
    I simply refuse to have pipes sticking out of the bumper on a front mount, they look rediculous

    No need for the aircon fan in the uk, it doesn't make any difference day to day.
    the only time it might do is on a very hot day if you had the climate on cold and you weren't moving.
    sonot really a problem in the uk!

    What mods did you have to carry out to the bumper/car etc. Was it a straight forward fit? Really tempted now especially after seeing them on Ebay for £300
