Morning guys,

Quick question, I have a 2003 B6 tdi quattro avant sport but I am loking to upgrade the bodywork to s-line type, I know some of the parts from the b7 are the same such as the side skirts and sills..

However, will a B7 RS4 bumper fit without any mods?

Plus if anyone has or knows anyone with any s-line parts for sale, pm me please!

Cheers

Steve

Not a chance. Nor will any other B7 front bumper fit onto a B6 without mods (ie swopping wings and bonnet etc etc)

The RS4 bumper is several inches wider than any other B7 bumper so it won't even fit another B7 let alone a B6.

Iirc one of the tuning companies made a kit to change a b6 to b7 rs4 front end. It involved a custom-made fibreglass bumper and some sort of bonnet extension I think. Not the most elegant solution but I guess it works if you know a good bodyshop.

ETA:- kit is made by Hofele and you are looking at 4 figures for parts alone

Ok, sorry for any confusion over this one guys,

I am aware that B6/B7 front bumpers are not inter-changeable, they are completely different, what I am trying to work out is whether the side skirts/rear bumpers can be swapped straight over without mods????

Other than that, can anyone advise where I would be able to get a full s-line kit from other than a stealer, I am aware that both votex and Abt did kits for these cars as well, in fact I think the Abt kits could be specced from dealers, however the Abt website doesn't even mention the B6 model anymore....

Cheers again

Steve

I'd say that the rear bumper wouldn't line up as the rs4 has flared arches so it will be made to line up with these. There's a full fibreglass conversion from B6 to B7 RS4 on eBay including front wings and rear flares at the moment. Yours for £1250 and then a lot of bodyshop time. Again, hofele do a rear rs4 bumper, just the lower section that bonds onto the upper part which blends with the wings.

Cheers for that,

Don't want to do any fibreglass/bodyshop work other than painting, just want the car to look like a later s-line model, hence looking for genuine audi parts...

The side skirts/door blades are the same as far as I'm aware and I've read* that the lower valances are interchangeable, but not the bumpers themselves.

* Never trust someone who says "I've read"

So to sum up, a useless post from me!
Remapped B6 A4 130TDI quattro Sport | Self fitted cruise | Interior re-trimmed in black | 18" RS6/B7 S-Line (are they the same?!) | A3 8P Gearstick | 3.5" TT V6 twin exhaust tips | aero wipers | B7 Concert II+ | Brushed Alu Interior | Auto Dimming rear view mirrors (interior & exterior), Auto headlights and Coming home lights, rain sensing wipers. Considering - folding mirrors... just need the bits.

only side skirts will fit from a b7. The options you have are votex(very hard to source as they are discontinued) maybe ebay but there are a lot of people after them. or the audi sline front and rear bumpers and the door blades from a donor b6. I have just bought the front lower sline valance and a seat cupra r lower front splitter to fit to my standard upper.Sourcing parts is a nightmare as there are a lot! of people after them, expect to pay premium prices even for second hand;)

sorry should just say that door blades from a b7 will also fit nicely

Thanks for the advice guys,

I know have a set of side skirts and lower door mouldings from e-bay, so can I just confirm that a rear B7 bumper will NOT fit a B6 as I have heard they are the same....

Cheers again...

Swarcp - any idea on part number/price of the cupra r splitter? Did you just get yours from a SEAT dealer? Also, is it an easy fit?

sorry for the delay ive been a little busy, firstly a B7 rear bumper will not fit as its the area around the rear lights that is different, ive been busy fitting a front sline lower to my original bumper and then adding a lower cupra r splitter, photos hopefully here

before

after
Attached File  frontnew.jpg   226.2KB   22 downloads

the cupra r splitter part number is 1ML 805 903 and costs around £25 from seat including vat, worth the effort i think it took all day saturday and a couple of hours sunday to do trickiest part was getting my newly constructed grills to sit correctly.
the splitter took around 15mins to fit but i did have the bumper off the car. On the car it would probably take longer. i used bolts straight through the sline lower to attach it as i dont want it to fly off unexpectadly.

just got to source a rear avant lower with twin cut outs now, anyone have one for sale?
