Hey guys, I'm shopping for a body kit for my B5 projekt. Stumbled upon this kit from RaceonUSA. Anyone seen this yet? The pics on the listing don't look promising, doesnt even look like they include the grill (see the mesh that they have installed already).

Just wanted to throw this out there. Looks like a cool concept just not feeling how terrible these guys listings are on ebay. Check it out....

Other than that, can you guys chime in with some advice for me? I have a 2.8 silver B5 that needs some body work and paint. Leaning RS4 style but cant decide on companys or style[headbang]

Thanks guys. Feels good to get a thread out, Ive been out the game for a while! Sold my 01' 4.2 A6 back in Oct.

i dont even really like the look of a real B7 let alone that garbage attempt of a B5 conversion. the B5 is much sexier especially with a few tasteful upgrades like a R/S4 bumper and such.

yep. That b7 conversion looks like shit. I wonder if they make a b5 conversion for the b7? (joke[rolleyes])

I'm so happy that the s4 and rs4 bumpers are appealing enough that no one in their right mind would buy a ugly body kit such as that...

as much as everyone goes against FG, i have a kerscher front and im getting the kerscher sides on in a week or so and i love the look. The FG is flexible enough that it doesnt crack when i scrape the bottom. If it was made from ABS i'd like it more, but personally i think its the best looking kit out there

Feels good

The paint is not intresting

Looks elegant and i dont have another impression of the performance.
It performs superb.

estrictlyforeign sells the RDT kit

I haven't seen any of these in person but I've heard you have to chop the hood. Def some custom work.

i personally am the most fond of the b5 body style so trying to replace that style and look with a b7 is down right rude.

the best looking b5 is the widebody rs4 look or at least the rs4 replica bumper.

good luck on picking out a body kit.

o and i am originally from Danbury, CT..... Hows Dblock treating you?

mmm Im a big fan of going against the grain. bit what kills it for me is how the hood comes across the lights. Not sexy ... at all
However dont be sheepish If you like somthing then do whatever floats your boat. Goodluck[up]

They could have at least made an attempt to put sides and a rear lip or a full respray. Even without the conversion, it's not a well put together car. I'd like to give this conversion a fair chance on a car with a full body kit.

Ive always had comflicting issues with this kit. Too me it is too bubbly, and then I will catch it at an angle that makes it really nice. I think I am going RS4 Fenders, matching up an S4 front to them, or maybe a Kerscher.

I remember seeing this in an ad in eurotuner a few years back and I had to take a triple take before I realized what exactly it was an how terrible it actually looks. Personally I'm not a fan of B7s in general so this makes me angry to see. To each his own though as bad is it looks in some eyes it might be gorgeous to others.

Actually, I have seen far worse B5's than that. Not at all my style, but i DO LIKE it in a way. I have always like those smoked tails too, but they wouldn't be a match for my own car.

Change the wheels, uni-wiper, paint and exhaust tip. It would probably look a bit decent.
