    Right me again, I know im just fullof questions but even though I work at Audi the parts department know less than I do...lol

    Ive just ordered an s4 grill and thinking of going the whole hog and doing the bumpers as well?? Apart from mine not having fogs and headlamp cleaning system (just glue the bits down ?)

    Is it a straight forward sway with bumpers etc ??

    And hoe different are the s4 skirts? Would u get away with just colour codeing the orginal skirts ??

    Dave

    Over and Out (untill futher questions arise..pmsl)

    The S4 bumper should be a straight swap depending on year of car I would have thought. You will need to order the wash jet caps that will clip on to the lift system so need to glue it.

    it will look OK but the full S4 look would be better.

    There a lot different so if your going to do the back (get the side carriers for the S4 rear bumper) then do the sides as you would not go out in your boxers without putting on your trousers would you.;)

    seeing as you work for Audi could you price me up the brake lines and bracket for the RS4 brakes not looking for any discount I just don't want to use my local anymore.

    Yep they sort of pop out and in just make sure poke the bonnet release arm through the new grill as you won’t be able to pop the bonnet if you don't.

    what price are the S4 side skirts only for the B5, I have the front and rear bumper already (not fitted).
    I didn't like the washer caps so I filled the holes and painted over them, looks much better than fake washers IMO.
    Haven't tried test fitting the bumpers yet, they are OEM but did someone say I need different side hangers for the rear?
