    turbo so here are some pics of what I have done so far hope yoiuo enjoy reading and will keep you updated IMG_20171028_123931456_HDR_zpsy0wzanux_edit_1511119711381.jpg IMG_20170802_145838500_zpssooy26iw_edit_1503689517508.jpg IMG_20170805_152453154_HDR_zpsdozvqhzq_edit_1503353029072.jpg IMG_20170910_174046705_zps2wwjlxm7_edit_1505061830599.jpg IMG_20171001_134745145_zpsiaxdpifk_edit_1506863303041.jpg IMG_20171001_134756971_zps4evmjkix_edit_1506863258938.jpg IMG_20170804_202827660_zpssrtgtl9s_edit_1507668132537.jpg IMG_20170709_213351_zpsy8g5e8aj_edit_1511120317120.jpg IMG_20171005_155408199_zpsakwigday_edit_1511120298003.jpg IMG_20170906_195643400_zpsillhvwmb_edit_1510497086608.jpg

    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!

    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.
