    Ok I found another bumper and with a little mod of taking out the swag line I would say it's quite a good match and the plus side is that the OEM RS4 grills fit.

    So if some one could do a photo shop to see the effect.......


    Here's pictures of my OEM RS4 bumper.

    With the swage line filled / smoothed, I'd say that's one on the best non-OEM RS4 bumper's I've seen.

    I like the fact it takes OEM grilles too.

    That looks pretty damn good, like to see more pics of it fitted, the green avant on the website doesn't look so good. But like you say withthe fact that original grills fit the proportions are all right, so may well be worth investing in one in the future. It's book marked in my favourites now, or in other words my ever growing "to-do list!"

    Looks pretty good to me :)

    is it designed for cars with normal wings or RS4 wings?

    did you find a UK supplier?

    Looking at the website they also do a decent style rs4 rear bumper as well, for the avant that has the exhaust out in the right place :)

    That does look very good, just needs that swage line removing, definately gone shooting up my to-do-list! Just gotta keep an eye out for some reasonably priced RS4 grills now! Wonder if it's just a skin that's gonna be a pain to mount well, or if it actually has proper mounts to suit the car?

    I would think it's a bond on job which they supply from what I can read.

    Hmm, I'm tempted to get that one, rather than a standard S4 item...

    Great find Dave.

    How would someone move the line, sand it off or fill below and blend it?

    So 1 RS4's not enough for you?!?!

    I'll have an S4 one needing a home as soon as this one's in the post.

    I'm gonna fill the swage line, prob with glass fibre and plastic padding/P38 mix, blend it in for a smooth finish, more factory looking IMO.

    The porsche wheels are cup 3's I believe, look up jojo on here, got some on his S3.

    Anyway, no more posting on here, don't want everyone getting this bumper! :no:

    @ Stapo: I'll be interested in your S4 bumper, if you get the RS4 rep.

    The RS one has a bit of a different design on the sides, a smaller air intake and an extra swage line, that runs through to match their side skirts, also the front seems to be a little flatter, the middle grill on the RS4 sits out a bit further. The RS looks similar to the reiger one more commonly fitted to peoples A4.

    I'll let you know as soon as i get the front end ordered Sienna.:thumbsup:

    Where did you find the bumper for that price doc? I've only found it for nearer £300!
    If I can get it for that price it'll be in the post a lot sooner!

    And I think the swag line looks fine on the darker car, but think it'll stand out more on mine and not quite match the lines on the rest of the car, but each to our own ain't it! Wouldn't do to all be the same!

    sorry to hijack the post but it is related
    I need to find some of that mesh that people have used to replace horizontal slats with RS4 type diamond mesh.
    can;t find any with big enough gaps to match the grill.
    anyone know where I can get it?
