yes, it takes quite a lot of work to get that bumper to fit an a4/s4 but its well worth it. Just spoke w/ an s4 guy over the weekend who had it done and it cost him 1100 just in labor.

yea it won't work without you doing some modifications. Why not get the Reiger RS4 Bumper?

Yeah, it takes a lot of work to get that bumper to fit on your car.. That bumper is a good few inches wider than your stock one, so you can imagine the kind of work you need to do to get it to fit properly [:D]

Its by far the best looking bumper out there, but by far the biggest pita to install [:D]

He's expecting around $900-950. This doesn't come with all mounting parts and fog lights. These will cost about ~$450-500

You can get new RS4 bumper, mounting kit, grille and fogs for around $1000-1050 from places like achtuning.com and atlastimports.com

Then you need to mold the OEM RS4 bumper to fit, then paint and install. Could be too much trouble and expense compared to the Rieger Rs4 bumper (for example)

RS4 = widebody

A4= not widebody

While we're talking about bumpers...if I get a bumper (re)painted, can the bumper be coated with that Clear Bra paint protection film? I mean, can it be applied around the curves without showing wrinkles?

Does this stuff actually work well against rocks and stones?

Yep but don't compare rieger rs4 to oem rs4.

Just go like your S4 modded bumper or OEM RS4.

Rieger is fine if you go with the full kit.
