    Hey Jamie,
    I have an Autobahn88 kit on my 1.8tqs. Does go on but if you have a standard bumper it does take a bit of cutting and slicing to make it fit. Even then it is tight. I would like to have gotten an S4 one but can't afford. Also the pipe leading from the intercooler to the top was just out of alignment. Took a bit of persuasion and force really to get her in.
    Check near the top of page 3 in the pics thread in b5. There is one there of the fmic on bumperless.

    http://www.autobahn88.co.uk/audi-a4-passat-18t-b5-front-mount-intercooler-kit-p-74.html

    Hope this helps

    No worries. The guy who was fitting it for me said that using a bender might be dangerous as it is aluminium. I'm no mechanic or anything so couldn't gice an opinion but maybe others in the forum could??

    as long as it's a mandrel pipe bender and not altering to much they are normally ok, although it might not need doing
