    well i cant see the point in getin a s4 cabby then rs4 conversion to do it right will cost ££££££££ and you could get a rs4 for the price it will cost
    plus it will never be a rs4
    and your gona need rear wings front wings bumpers etc etc etc etc to get it to look good

    but thats just my thoughts each to there own an all that

    bez101,,, you are right in one way,but with another Hot Rod on the build,one finished and me wanting another car I simply can't afford to lay out for a RS and still build,so gathering bits here and there i can have what i want in the end,body fabricating,painting etc don't cost me as I do it my self,suspension and exhaust work I do my self and what I can't do my son-in-law who works for a well known tuning company doe's it for me, the new parts I can get trade due to a family friend working for Audi,It wont be badged as a RS because it's not one ! just my own touch's added, another reason I don't want to buy a gennie RS is because when I take my Hot Rod out it stops traffic and pulls a ground like you wouldn't imagine no RS on the earth could match that,Cheers.

    Welcome

    Don't forget the quarters etc will need replacing to, also, don't go for replica wheels, the genuine RS4 ones are both different and much better!

    Hi there and welcome from a fellow new member. Hope you find what you're after. When I was looking there was a dealer in Wallisdown area of Bournemouth that seemed to buy in S4s quite often. There also an Audi meet on 20/2 in Southampton that would give you some ideas and I'm sure your hot rod would be welcomed along if you hadn't yet got the Audi. The thread is here, although timings haven't been set yet.
