Looking to replace my worn out stock bumper with a nice after market or RS4 style bumper. My stock K03 turbo lives on at 189K miles but I know one day it will give it up. When it does I wish to at least have the ability for a larger intercooler and piping system. Looking for some direction from the good folks in this forum [up]

well there are a few good options that will work with the stock bumper - the greddy, the spp, evolution motorsports [evoms] all make fmic's that are well documented here. they both require cutting to varying degrees. 034 just released one as well that i am leaning toward, their stuff is top nick, and from what i've heard it requires minimal cutting.

the other option im aware of is the apr piece but it requires a larger bumper - s4 or rs4. frankly i like the stealthyness of the stock a4 bumper

The S4 bumper can hold just about any available intercooler.

That is just a fiberglass copy of a RS4 bumper, it isn not a S4 bumper. It does how ever fit the B5 A4/S4.

get the s4 front bumper and do the rs4 conversion on the grills like i did. and it will look more OEM.

Thanks guys. Anyone know where I can get an S4 bumper and how much $$$ I'll need? Are we talking OEM or aftermarket?

You will most likely have to cut the s4 bumper...nothing too bad. Odd are the filler plate section will go...

There is only the OEM S4 bumper.

At the top of the B5 forum is the FAQ. One of the last 3 posts has all the part numbers and prices for the S4 bumper.
