    I remember seeing one somewhere but its really easy. You just have to sand down the sides of the window lock button on the b8 switch to have less dominant corners like the B6 so that it can fit in the plastic door plate. It has the same connectors and everything.
    The B8 Switches are super nice and it has chrome. I ended up chroming everything out in my interior to match, even down to the other window switches.

    You can easily buy the whole window switch kit for cheap on ebay....

    B8 front seats will retrofit into a B6. Doesn't matter if they're base, S-Line, or S seats, they all bolt in. You'll need to swap seat harnesses and heated seat fuses for a 30 amp fuse. I'm in the midst of depinning and repinning the harnesses for a B8 S4 to B6 Cabrio seat swap.

    Having said that, I wish I had a set of terminal removal tools.

    I was looking at that, B8 complete sets are cheaper than B6/B7 singles.

    I don't have time to build them. I'll likely just get a set from my buddy who owns a master mechanic. Then build my own later on.

    Right on. Took me about 1/2 hour to build both. Then a few hours to wait for the adhesive I used to secure them to the handles to set.

    Where are those bulb covers located? In a b5 dome light assembly I'm assuming?

    From my limited experience with the b6 the similarities that can be swapped from a b7 (that fits even with some modification) that I have seen so far is, mind you mine is a 05 b6, almost the whole interior, suspension, mounts (snub, motor, trans, rear diff and the carrier for the 3rd member) dsmic, engine crowl cover pieces (ex, battery cover) steering rack, exhaust from down pipe back?, brakes, wheel (I think? 57.1 center bore right?assumption) so that would cover b7rs4, Door blades, coolant reservoir, power steering reservoir looks the same, aero blades, shark fin. Now I know a lot of these were also mentioned and some of my assessments are not confirmed but I am sure it is close enough where minimum modification would be needed.

    I am wondering how close the fuel tank between the late b6 is to the b7 (Quattro) and if they are close enough would you be able to retro fit the fuel pump controller which would also be able to use the rs4 controller. This is the assumption (still researching everything with the b6 haven't made it there yet). It helps with the fueling duty cycle plus runs more efficient and doesn't strain the pump as bad when tuning it.

    I don't know about the trans, if it bolts up but I do know that there is a gearing difference between the two and the b7 is slightly taller. B6-20 mph 2200 rpms 2nd gear, 30 mph 3200 rpms 3rd gear, ect 4th 5th 6th (+/- 100 rpms). Redlines (almost bouncing the needle) 3rd around 90 4th around 115. Those are approximates. B7 1st 10 mph 1000 rpms, 2nd 20 mph 2000 rpms ect 3,4,5,6 gears (+/- 100rpm) redlines 1st 31 2nd 47 3rd 102 4th 128 5th I don't remember if it was 146 or if it was drag limited (base tune) some where just above 155. If so the the 6th gear was drag limited.
    Edit: mph are not gps accurate and was done some where in Mexico.
    What ever makes sense go with the opposite and you got it

    itsmatt33 said it's also a good idea to install B7 e-brake cables, when doing B7 brakes mod.
    S/RS door card inserts could be leather, vs. our fake.

    I heard it's due to the potentiometer metal being bent (worn) from use, that it needs to be taken apart so you can rebend it (spring metal)

    Supposedly; with the case being that similar-looking knobs from A3 won't entirely as a full assembly because A4 boot (the bottom trim ring too) goes wider than A3 (a tiny car)

    Example, 2 different posts saying 2 different items (sway bar and DSMIC) are swappable to a B6, however, no mention of where said parts came from (B5, B7 or B8)

    I will clear this up with...
    Swaybars from a B7 will fit a B6
    DSMIC from a B7 will fit a B6 , however, fabrication is needed as well as various pipes and front transfer ducting from the B7
    Always wondered about the DSMIC.

    Supposedly some, if not all '07MY+ B7 S4's got the 22mm RS4 rear bar.

    ok but the whole things are like $130 for both.
    evo_ski says its $8 if you figure out where to buy the bushings by themselves. Rubber donut looking things. Maybe you can cut the old ones off, slide new ones on.

    I'm weary of eBay window switches. Last set I bought was black "OEM" from China. Looked like some thin paint (enamel, acrylic?) and flimsy so it emitted a cheap click sound whenever I used it. Instead of solid, like original.

    I special ordered one of the main sizes but it was pricey. Even more expensive is the whole kit.
    then found myself needing a smaller one, so I made it from a paper clip. You have to be careful/gentle to use it, and it's not quick, but it works. Not bad for a paperclip.
    Saved the video though, maybe one day.

    interesting. wonder why Audi discontinued that. Maybe it softens and spreads out the light?

    I run B7 A4 rears on my B6 and I use the stock B6 handbrake cable, fits perfectly. S4 rears I dont know but I run them on my B7 with the stock A4 B7 cables. I just took the cable out of one of the rear braket.



    I heard it's due to the potentiometer metal being bent (worn) from use, that it needs to be taken apart so you can rebend it (spring metal)

    A B7 A4 dome light is plug and play. Bending it wont last

    A3 shift knob works in a 5 speed, on a 6 speed it will come in contact with the shifter bezel when engaging reverse



    Always wondered about the DSMIC.

    you need to use the B7 crossover
