    I did exactly the same thing a few weeks ago on a kerb in McDonalds. Managed to push bumper back in place but a few of the clips on the bumper itself have snapped. I assume I will need a new bumper in time.

    Audi A4 B7 saloon roof bars

    Yes. I'm sure the B8 Audi is wider and fittings may be different. I couldn't use the B7 rack and fitments on the B8 that I owned that's for sure.

    B7 A4 Avant - Is there a DAB/Bluetooth option?

    I am also looking for the same thing for my 2006 A4 Saloon. I have the concert stereo and would just like to replace with an aftermarket head unit that I can plug my ipod into. Not even bothered about bluetooth but would like DAB.

    Replacement Head Unit for my 2006 A4, Single Din?

    Hi there, In my 2006 A4 Saloon I have the single DIN Concert CD head unit, No Bose, NO CD Changer. Is it easy to do a straight swap for an aftermarket head unit? Ideally I want something that I can plug my ipod into and maybe still has the ability to play a CD. Is this possible? Thanks all.

    2007 A4 Buying Advice Please

    Hi Tom.S92 - Yeah it looked ok for its age and mileage was quite low, which will actually put some people off.

Once it gets to 90, it will stay there if I am driving around town. However, as soon as I go on the motorway it drops to halfway between the 50 and 90...
