    wowsers! looks like the Ipswich Parts sales desk has a new pal that has helped them hit all their targets and secured their bonus!

    certainly be interested in the fitting and final finish ! good luck

    Yeah a list of all the part numbers would be good.

    Do you work in a bodyshop?

    Rear bumper is £250 give and take.

    And no he does not work in a body shop more of your specialist mechanic that can do things other people say you can do but he also does the normal mechanic work.


    The car is at the same place I got mine done.

    I reckon an RS4 B5 saloon will look sick! Looks like a no-expense spared kinda job, and the finished article will be eagerley awaited!

    Fitting S4 dash and instruments. Won't be doing that till I'm fitting the engine and tranny, due to transponder issues. I've also got an RNS-E Navigation Plus to fit.

    Still looking for an RS4 leather interior, or S4 Recaros.

    Can I ask how you're gonna open the boot? Solenoid? Was looking at doing something similar to get rid of the ugly big ass lock that sticks out of the pre face lift boot lid, tidy things up a bit.

    The face lift have a button on the remote that pops the boot lid so you may want to start there.

    Siena, looks like you may start a new trend with that boot lid.

    Nice project!!!

    Are you going to use a S4 rear like Doc, or the OEM RS4 mixed with the S4 one...? Friend of mine just finished a RS4 saloon project, used the S4 and RS4 bumper, cut it in half and made a RS4 saloon rear..Looks nice and OEM... Too bad he didnt take pics of it, but Audiman83 did the same, you can find it on A4-freunde.de...

    I'm using the Euro S4 rear bumper. I did consider using a combination of RS4 / 2000-spec A4, but don't like the RS4 rear on a sedan, it makes the rear end look way too heavy.

    I think the Euro S4 bumper looks great on a sedan.

    Nice one Siena, hope it all comes together smoothly. I have PM'd you the wheel place you asked about.

    Last part of the turbo jigsaw fell in place for my RS4 rep today. Should have it back on the road in 2 weeks now :)

    You'll have to post some updated photos when yours is done Andy. I've got a ming blue saloon, and it's painful to see one looking nicer than mine!

    Lol, easy for you!

    The bodyshop's not local to me at all, it's a 130-mile round trip, and I work full time.

    Unless the bodyshop contacts me for something specific, not worth me taking time off, and losing money. Besides, I've left him with cameras to take pics, as he goes along.

    WoW! What a project, cant wait to see more on it and would be coool if you would disclose the cost at the end, I'd love to do this but a) not in my budget and b) girlfriend would kill me.
    I'll just have to wait for you or Docurley to sell and hopefully I can afford 1 :(

    @ Z82: Will disclose cost, eventually!

    Like your V6 quattro Sport. Is that Alpine white, or is it Pearl white? Looks pearl in the picture.

    Jpc, no worries, your later A4 will look great with the Votex kit. Votex have supplied Audi themselves for years, so pretty good.

    As for your S4-into-1.8TQS, PM me, and we can talk.

    Should be an awesome conversion when you're done. Is your 1.8T a quattro?

    As for my chosen colour, I did consider black, but way too sedate for me.
