Just go to the dealer, pay $500 for a new bumper without the support in your color and save yourself the headache.

Where are your dealers?!?! I work for an Audi dealership and I get cost plus 10% and my S4 front bumper that i was looking at and my price was like $640 unpainted. If I found one for 500 I would lay down the cash right now!

I have bought 2 S4 bumpers from the dealer and both times they cost me under $550 for an unpainted bumper with the bumer support in it.

You are able to take you bumper support from your A4 and put it in the S4 bumper. Your a 2001 so it should work. If you buy a new one your golden as they are included.

Man I called the dealership asking for a quote on the whole set up. They told me it would run me more than a grand for the complete setup, because I need shock[confused] and all this stuff. They said its a completely different setup then the A4 front bumper setup. Is that true for all you guys who have done the switch.

A4 front bumper dampers are shorter.

It would also appear your US prices are higher than our UK ones. My RS4 front bumper works out cheaper than your US S4 one! $1,000 for a complete front set-up?!

Not 100% true. Some people have been able to use their stock A4 bumper shocks(me included). It seems that the very early preface lift A4's came with bumper shocks that were slightly shorter.

Nope the A4 fogs dont fit the S4 bumper it fits the RS4 bumper from what I've read.

I just ordered a S4 Bumper this week from a local Audi/Porsche dealership here in FL and with the bumper, grills and insert it came out to $726 without tax. If I remember correctly, list for all the parts was closer to $850-$875. Also, I think for the bumper alone, I think the amount was close to the price Mike mentioned, like $568 or so. I searched on Ebay and on the forums for a while and finally inpatience got the best of me and I pulled the trigger on a new one. The dealership offers a discount to the local FL Audi club which amounted to 10-15% off of list price.

I don't have the invoice in front of me, but I will update the actual prices I paid once I have with me in the a.m.

Actual Price from Invoice:
Bumper (8D0-807-103-J-GR):
List: $592.24
PPrice: $496.00

Shit if you guys want and can wait like 3 or so weeks I may be able to get ahold of like 3 and ship them to you via Greyhound. The bumpers will cost me $275 each. Plus the $125 for shipping and packing. So for about $400 I can get you guys one. They will come unpainted, no side grills and no rebar support. They mount right up to the stock A4 one tho. I did it on my car and could not be happier!

I know a guy who is about an hour or so away. He has a friend who has a yard that scraps german cars. Thats why if I go there I need to at least pick up 3 or so because the drive is a little far for just one part at a time.

It will look good but IIRC the RS4 bumper has to be trimmed a little because the finders are wider on the RS4. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Lol its because I have the Canadian S4 spec side grills (no fogs). So I just claim it as a Canadian S4 bumper haha.

Oh and I ship via Greyhound to your nearest big city. They greyhound depot will call you and you will have to pick it up.

Yeah if you need the side grills you can order them off of ECS tuning, brand new, unpainted, U.S. or Canadian spec. Your A4 rebar and your headlight washers will transfer right over. Get a euro plate to cover the place in the front or invest in a filler plate which is another $100 or so. The S4 fogs can be found in the classifieds most often. My total cost for my bumper was about $500. $275 for the primed bumper, $100 painted from a shop, $100 for used S4 side grills on ebay and like another $25 for the euro plate and holder. So forget the stealership prices.
