    I'm building a B7 RS4 avant clone here in the states and have been getting super high quotes for parts. I need some rear wings and a rear bumper, along with a hatch. I would love to source some front seats as well, and hopefully I can have all these parts put onto a pallet and shipped to Virginia. If you have a source at a breaker or anywhere else, please let me know.

    ebay.co.uk is a good start, type in "Audi RS4 breaking", "RS4 rear bumper" and you might get lucky and just Audi RS4

    type this number in and they have an Avant being broken up 261884190237

    I once did a guy off audizine a favour and sent over all the parts to build a b5 RS4 saloon conversion but it was a bit of a pain to be honest. But I can have a word with a friends friend who brings over hot rod parts from the US to the UK and see who he uses and get some idea of costs.

    That would be much appreciated. I shipped a pallet of beer over years ago, but I cant remember who I went through.

    You shipped a pallet of bear in to the USA...... wow
    Was it really that much cheaper than buying wholesale locally?

    I was stationed at RAF Lakenheath and had acquired quite a lot of rare beer. When I was moving back to the US, I found out I could ship it all back, so I did. About half survived the trip, but it was worth it.

    And the guy at the breaker yard is a pain in the *** to deal with on email. I'm trying to find out what the rear quarter cut will look like. It should be cut halfway through the door opening on the top and bottom, like an OEM replacement. He also says he only has one side, and the other is damaged, but he won't send me a pic of the damage. It may be worth fixing.

    My mates on holiday so it may be next week before I can give you any contact info but what I will need is your address contact info and maybe the nearest port to you as they may only be able to get it to the port.

    Seriously? If they are cut in the right places, I'll buy those suckers right away and find a way to ship them, along with a bunch of other stuff. I'm sure I can think of several things to buy and ship here.

    You sir are awesome. Is there any chance I can pay you some kind of fee to secure these for me? Once I find a company that can ship these, I will also be picking up a ste of Euro Recaro front seats.

    Edit 1: How can I tell those are from an RS4? I have been trying to compare them to an A4, but they look the same from what I can see.

    Edit 2: It's hard to tell, but I think I see the fender curves and they look good to me.

    I looked straightaway and new they were real.

    if you look at the link and look at his other parts you will see hes breaking a few RS4's and as England is not quite as big as the US I don't think he will be able to hide to far.

    The next thing is paying for them, he said he would take a small deposit to secure them. Plus if he's still coming down to London he's prepared to meet me in London E10 (he's picking up something there) for collection and final payment, but he was going to do this in the next 7 days otherwise you have the cost of sending them somewhere later.

    I can pay through Paypal whenever it needs to be done. I just have to figure out where to have the parts taken till I can get a shipping company contracted.

    If he's still not come to London for a collection then I would be happy to store the parts for you.

    I just contacted the seller about those parts, and may end up having them sent to you David. I have contacted a few removal companies and I'm just waiting on responses and quotes. Thanks again for all the help David, it is much appreciated.

    Sure not a problem, just need to make sure when so someone will be in, in the mean time I'm trying to get hold of my friends friend who ships stuff to the UK and see if they have a UK division.

    They say there not great on emails so if you don't hear from them let me know and I will give them a call for you.

    David,

    Can you call these guys and tell them I want the parts? I'll pay you and then you can pay them, if that's alright?
