    I don't think there is a wide arch kit as such for the A4's, the Docurley made his B5 A4 Saloon wide arched using B5 RS4 parts, but sadly, the car no longer exists. On the B7 obviously, the RS4 is wide bodied.

    I would have thought so, standard body needs 35 offset for the wheels, and RS4 out the box is ET20 I think, with room for spacers.

    There is no kit as such. What you would need to do is cut and weld and paint the new panels on. Check out Siena's build thread HERE.

    There has been lots of different threads on it in the B6 section too - but there is no easy cheap way of doing it. Start saving.
