Hi,

I've just bought an S4 Cabrio and having just joined this group would really appreciate some help/ advice.

I would like to sharpen up the face of my car (pictured below) and saw the 'lip' circled in the picture below of another S4 (in the same colour as mine). Does anybody know if this is after market and where I might get it? If not I would also be interested in any other bodykits to freshen up the look and give the car a bit more presence. Will probably only do the front but may be persuaded to be a bit bolder!

Many thanks
Steve

eBay and Amazon mate plus some lesser known and slightly untrustworthy looking "tuning" sites but wouldn't recommend those without experience.

Edit: Did have an even more similar looking Amazon link but kept pasting an image for some reason.
May not be 100% like for like but pretty close.
Might be worth posting in the A4 B6 section.

Yeah, easier with a cab too, more expensive though, certainly miss mine but was allot of work.

I think the B6 to B7 looks like the image below, with a slightly bulky looking nose (imo).. not wholly convinced by this

Thanks for that.. I quite like it if I go for a minimal freshen up. I have stumbled across this Rieger bodykit which I love, but does come at a price (about £1k) What do you think of it?

Would watch with full front ends kits like that as they have allot of cutting involved.

When done with B7 bits looks more like my B6 did:

Probably cost allot more than whatever kit is out there though and was most likely far more effort, all personal preference really, some people like the B6 front and would say just put a basic plastic splitter on the bottom or something.

Thanks for that Jake.. I didn't realise there was a lot of cutting involved even with those 'bespoke' kits from Rieger...

I think I probably would go splitter if my front bumper wasn't damaged - just got lured by a complete change as bumper needs repairing/replacing anyway. But seems you can get the whole B6 bumper replacement for about £90 so maybe new bumper and lip is the way to go....

decisions.. decisions...
