Does anyone know where to buy a full RS4 Widebody conversion kit for the B5 other than gmgracing.com? They have it for $7450 plus shipping. I'm just wanting to shop pricing a bit and I've hit a dead end. Any help or suggestions on where to go and look would be greatly appreciated. TIA.

You could find a shop in your area to fabricate something for you. Probably be cheaper than 7500.

Not sure if this is exactly what you are looking for since the grille is ghey! But they sell wide body http://www.estrictlyforeign.com (http://www.estrictlyforeign.com/asp/products_sel.asp?L1=1&L2=Audi&L3=A4/S4%2096-01)

GMG is your best bet to receive the OEM components...you could install a hunk of shit eStrictly Foreign setup or have some shop jerry rig your car...

There is a reason there are very few true RS4 conversions here in states.

FWIW I do not source the parts and have no interest in doing so.

The seidl WB doesn't look that bad at all. I think if the front bumper had 1 slit molded (to look like the OEM RS4) and OEM RS4 mesh.. it would look really good. Accompanied by an RS4 grill and no eyelids. I would probably mold 1 slit on the rear bumper as well.

That kit is way to rounded giving the fenders and 1/4 panels a bubble look which in no way looks as good as the OEM stuff.


There is a guy that made a set of OEM RS4 replacement parts in CF, he made a set of fenders and rear door but not sure what he did with the 1/4 panel. He had talked to Fred about maybe trading for some front CF doors when he found out that we were going to be doing some.

I am not sure how many pieces GMG includes in their kit (not a slight), but there are nearly 35 unique parts required to do a complete, correct conversion. We just updated our pricing on them last week for a customer and it's currently running about $12,500 for everything. If you want to save a little, it could probably be done for around $10k by eliminating some non-critical items like fender liners, etc.

Items needed are:
- Bumper Cover, Front
- Front Grills; Upper, Lower Left, Right & Center
- Front Bumper Brackets; Left & Right
- Fog Light Assemblies, Left & Right
- Cover under engine, w/hardware
- Front Fenders; Left & Right
- Door Sills; LF, RF, LR & RR
- Door Skins; LF, RF, LR & RR
- Felt Fender Liners; LF, RF, LR & RR
- Bumper Cover, Rear Avant
- Roof Spoiler
- Fuel Filler Cover
- Rear Inner Fenders, Left & Right
- Rear Quarter Panels, Left & Right
- Side Moldings, Left & Right

Ocean freight from Germany to Florida is included in that price and they would continue by truck to anywhere in North America from there.

As an aside, the carbon fenders from SDR are actually 20% cheaper than the factory steel ones. Got to love the Euro! [:(]

Have you looked at Europrice? http://euro-audi-parts.com? They have a kit and I believe it's pretty resonable. I'm looking into doing the same up grade but I just need to find a shop that is good enough to take on a task such as a full RS4 body kit for a sedan.

What about this duraflex stuff?

rear: http://www.duraflexbodykits.com/9601-audi-duraflex-rear-bumper-p-19947.html

front: http://www.duraflexbodykits.com/9601-audi-duraflex-front-bumper-p-19224.html


Is this a cheap substitute that is not worth my time?

Do your prices change on current trading value? Just wondering if I could still get this all for ~10k...

I just ordered the 1/4 panels and sourced used doors front fenders, and bumpers. The 1/4 panels are on a 6-9 week back order :(. I'll be out less than 5g's and 2/3 of that cost was the 1/4 panels!

Why did you include front door skins?

Scotty@Advanced

Front door skins for the RS4 lack the lower pins to hold the lower rubber strips. You can cut those off your stock front doors. If you have a 99 1/5 and prior the door handles are different, as is the skins.

do you have any idea how much shipping costs are? I live in germany, wondering if I can get it down for cheaper. The euro doing good also, 1.27 to 1.00 today.

Good point I never thought of the pre 99.5's having different door handles even though I used to own one[headbang]
