    Don't know if anyone is interested in this, but I went to this place to get a quote on some dink removals, and the owner happens to own an RS4, only it wasn't one at all, but a looky likey.

    So I had a chat with him about the conversion, which doesn't come cheap, but he said he can supply the complete conversion kits seperately if required, and it would take a bit of modification to make it fit your saloons too.

    I think originally, he just did this as a project, but now he's taking this seriously, as he's had loads of enquiries. Here's his site anyways.

    I saw that car at one of the shows and didnt think much of it tbh.

    The panels looked like glassfibre copys rather than real OEM panels, and the fit and finish just wasnt good enough for whats bound to be the best part of a 5-6k conversion.

    The rear arches on those kits look gash. And poor man front bumpers too.

    You would have thought they would at least fit facelift headlights to their 'show' cars!

    Yeah it was at Spring Fest. The white one was a diesel if a recall correctly.

    Nasty, not much genuine stuff there to demand the cash they ask!!!

    The white one was for sale recently, around £6k iirc.

    Its still is for 5k on ebay... Them bumpers will break as soon as you drive past a few speed bumps and the filler they would put on the car while blending the arches im will break in short time...

    It does LOOK like an RS4, so perhaps they've taken moulds of the real RS4 bodypanels?

    Plastic/fibreglass rear quarters moulded into the wheel arch...If you wanna have-it done properly there are a few companies who supply carbon/kevlar rs4 style pannels in germany and they cost a fraction more of what the cheap GRP ones do... Settle for the real deal chaps.

    The real deal is genuin rs4 arches made of steel that get welded on,not stuck on.
