    I was wondering, could the following be taken off the new RS5 and fit on the new S5 sportback?

    - the front bumper
    - rear bumper
    - exhaust tips

    Is it an easy swap job?

    if its wider you will need the wings rear arches etc

    Yes the RS5 has wider arches, you could change quarters & wings, but as an S5 stands, front/rear RS5 bumpers wouldnt pnp.

    Thanx for the reply. Any idea how much something like that would cost (parts only) or where i can get the parts from other than audi itself ?

    regarding the rear bumper, yeah i can see a difference where the rear lights are. Any idea if anyone here has tried fitting the front bumper and arches of the RS5 on an S5 Sportback / Coupe ?

    It wont be cheap at all imho, unless a rear ended rs5 comes up, then its audi for sure.

    I was planning on making a carbon version but decided against it. So it's never been used but sat in a box in my garage.

    What post count do you need for that? I haven't mentioned anything of the sort to stay within the forum guide lines.

    Did you manage to make the conversion? Wouldn't mind seeing how it looked if you did.

    I did a bit of research on this recently - I've seen that the front bumper starts at a different height on the wings than the S5 bumper so the wings need to be trimmed so that the new bumper can be attached. Basically unless you're going to replace the front bumper and wings (not cheap for everything) then it's not going to be easy. An alternative is the Rieger front bumper which looks similar and isn't as difficult to fit. Goes on with no modifications to the wings though takes a bit of time to get it fitted properly. But then with the Rieger front bumper you need skirts etc because it sits lower and wider than the rest of the car.

    I would not recommend the rieger bumper very poor build quality I went down this route but took it off in the end and sold it I have now done a full rs5 conversion front and back using genuine parts

    Did you need wings as well as the bumpers? Anything else needed at all? Also, could you provide a rough cost please?
