does anyone even make rear bumpers... I thought there are only lips that attach to the stock one? I could be wrong though...

this is a Sedan bumper:

see the difference it would be quite difficult and expensive to change that...

The avant bumper on the B5 chassis is more or less eurospec, there is a "drop" underneath the tailight as it transitions to the rear hatch area.

Here's a dietrich-tuning rs4 alike rear bumper for the B5 avant. If only they made it for the sedan...

The only other full bumper I saw was the one on SF that looks like the reiger RS4 front bumper just on the rear of the car. It is for a wide body though.
