    so my folks will be up in the UK this week and ive sent across with them my faulty ABS module, to ECUtesting in Derby.

    Would love for them to locate the following while there:

    • RS4 kit (foxmeister yours looks stunningly ORIGINAL)
    • rear diff mounts.. what brand?
    • snub mount
    • instrument cluster LCD


    any input would be appreciated

    Cheers Kev.

    Yep PB, as Aragorn said, mine was/is a genuine Audi RS4 bumper thats been worked to fit the A4 shape, and the best rep on the market that i had previously also is the Dietrich bumper but thats made from fibreglass and has a step in the shape that the RS4 doesnt, so would need some work to get right. The sideskirts are actually OEM S4 skirts, but i had the door blades deleted to look smoother and more like the RS as the blades can look cluttered. Rear is an OEM (late) S4 bumper.

    What exact parts are you after for RS4 bits and what kinda budget do you have, i'll try help as much as i can, sorry i didnt reply to your last post, currently tied up moving home.

    Snub mount has been debated on here recently, best bet is go for a genuine Audi RS4 part, cheap and uprated in comparison to lower eng size models.

    Kev has beefed up his standard diff mounts using Silkaflex??? i think(correct me if im wrong mate) and he might be able to point you to a thread showing that, very cheap and sensible mod, not sure what uprated ones to use or cost thou, but i would consider the possible increase in vibrations, noise etc if you fit uprated parts here.

    thanks for all the input guys.

    Foxmeister your build thread on your car is really impressive- i spend half an hour each day going through a page or 2 in detail

    Being so on the other end of the world, particularly in a country where the B5 RS4 never came to, it is rather tough to source the necessary. There is only one B5 S4 in South Africa, i might add- a bloke that lived in the UK brought it down, a Nogaro Blue avant.

    My parents are in Birmingham at the moment, anybody know of any shops there? i have already sent my faulty ABD module with them up to derby.. but while theyre there id love if they brought me back some mounts.

    Fox thanks for that- i actually would be devastated if there were vibrations coming through as right now the car is absolutely smooth. i just have a bit of a wobble through the drivetrain on hard acceleration. Would this sound right- if i just change the diff and snub mounts to OEM RS4 then? if somebody could point me in the right direction for a supplier, id really appreciate it.

    Thanks again for all your time
