ya ya, i know i know, its only a stock B5 bumper, but its all i got right now. soon i wil be getting a. RS4 bumper or somthing like that. but now its sooner.

so lastnight i pulled into a parking slot, unaware that the parking block was moved about 2 feet forward and not even with all the others.. so i pulled up and SMACK>CREEK>RREERRRKKKKKCHCHHHHH..... right side of front bumper was smashed in, bent it all to hell.. i couldnt do anything other than back up slowly and see what happened... it pulled it back out but was a bit mangled.. all my wiper fluid was gushing out. i thought it was my radiator or somthing, i had no clue, then i smelled it and was only water thank god.. anyways, i got it all back into place except the little pop up jet washer cap wont go on. all the pieces in there was moved around so i cant get it on..

i am just thinking of glueing it back on or something, just to have it look ok.. but i will be looking to get an RS4 bumper soon or some type of differant bumper that the stock thats on there.. i will then paint my lowers and have rims and springs aswell.

i have been looking on ebay for RS4 bumpers and found them for around 250 with 90 bucks for shipping.. im not too sure about these prices though.. i would like to see what else is out there before jumping into that.. possibly seeing if someone on here would already have a white one for me or somthing...

so here is a pic of the end result. got it together the best i could.
anyone have an extra bumper????

you should be able to scoop a used s4 bumper for like 350

Sure ... but they are hard to find. When you find one, don't wait around or it'll be goine before you know it.

good luck with what ever you buy
