Really not sure to be honest mate. I’m thinking of trying to keep it as o.e.m as poss so prob Audi alloys just bigger than what I have or reps. But I do like bbs Ch and bbs lm’s.

You need prefacelift side mounts and crash rams. iirc you need a washer or 2 to get it to sit right. So I'm told.

I converted mine to face-lift front and will now be going backwards to get my S4 bumper on

make sure you get the bumper shocks with the bumper, the S4 ones are S4 specific.

You can use normal A4 ones, but its a faff, so if the proper S4 ones are available then get them!

They do come up. Have found the B5 group on Facebook really good. Managed to get carbon trim clips and gear surround from there

Yeah pretty happy with it.
There not to bad to do. You have to remove the pinch pins that hold the two upper control arms and there a nightmare!! You will need to get two new pinch bolts before trying as you’ll probably need to cut the nut off and punch them through, they took about two hours to get out.
Make sure you copper slip the new bolts when putting them in I case you need them out in future.
Then remove track rod so you can pull the bottom arm down and slip the suspension out.

The rears you have two strip all of the boot liner out to get to the mounting bolts and remove The bolt on the bottom of sus on both sides so you can pull the suspension control arm down. The control arm for both sides are connected together which is why you need to remove bolt both sides otherwise it won’t move.
