it wont fit from what i know, 95-99.5 B5s have a different bumper guides, maybe the bumper will fit but you will definitly have to change the guides.

or maybe i`m wrong. I know i cant use on my 99.6 facelift an old bumper cause of the guide difference. Dunno if guides are universal for the 2 bumpers pre and facelift.

I have mounted a pre facelift to my car before.

Might be a european car issue. Not an issue here, even the S4 bumper will fit on all of the A4's here.

As Mike said, this is true for non-US markets.
