S4 is more room, more airflow updated looks.

Rs4 is also more room and alot better airflow and even more updated/fast looks. They both also sit lower than a4 fronts.

Space change isn't huge but the rs4 seems more out than the s4.

I have a car with each. I prefer s4 front personally for looks.

sweet as thanks for the reply. So whats achouly involved in the swap? Parts needed?

I think I need to do this so I can get this big front mount In.

Are the front fenders/gaurds needed to be swapped to line up with bumpers?

Rs4 needs to be custom worked on. Converted to narrowbody.

S4 if you got the full bumper it's bolt on. Stock a4 fenders/liners.

To fit a big fmic you will need to notch the rebar for clearance, I run a tr18t core. Which is decent sized. I would try to find a s4 that comes with s4 rebar ect.

Rs4 also need rs4 bumper shocks(ecs sells em)

Or a small stack of washers (like my previous A4).

I have S4 bumpers and skirts on my Avant, it just bolts on PnP. IIRC, the rebar is thicker with the front S4 bumper. What the rest said about the RS4 bumper, a bodyshop would have to heat the the sides of the bumper to try making it fit to your factory fenders. The RS4 bumper will definitely be the most expensive option.
