    I recently bought myself a Renault rear diffuser to modify to fit my RS4 rear bumper ready for my conversion (yes I know this has been going on for ever).

    So any ways I was thinking if I could get my hands on a Diesel lower I could see what a B6 rear bumper would look like with it trimmed to fit.

    Now for the pictures not great but I was in a hurry.

    Looks interesting, I've never seen anything like that on a B6 before.

    Ok some small up date.

    I'm going to try this mod on a B6 TDI rear bumper to see what it look like on a B6 so I bought this of ebay fo peanuts £35 to the door and looking to start cutting it up soon.

    sorry have just been looking and its not the same as the one you have, i would say its more of a rear sort of sump guard if that makes sense.

    My previous DTM B7 had a very similar rear lower, very trick looking. I think this could be a really good mod!

    Still need rear quarters front grill, bonnet, front bumper iron and slam panel but this can be a B7 A4 unit.

    Had this same idea back in December when following a Renault. Looked into it and there are even carbon ones available which look incredible. Unfortunately pockets not deep enough and balls not big enough meant I never pursued it further.

    Really pleased to see yours looking so good though. Can't wait to see it finished.

    ...Might try and pick up a diesel lower before they become gold dust (just in case) :D

    it's almost a year so I have to sask... have you tried this yet? Mine is still sitting in my garage although I peer at it now and again. I've even gone as far as propping it up under the back of the car. My first impression is it isn't going to fit because the base of the boot hangs low and the diffuser looks as though it needs more height.

    Funny you should say, Mine is in my shed and every time I cut my grass I say I need to get this done but time is a ***** and a nagging other half telling me whens the bed room going to get painted drowning in my ear, so I don't dare pull it out right now.
