So, Ive only been able to find one kit around and its somehting like 8 grand. LOL. Im in love with that kit and now I dont want anything else, Is there any way I could piece this kit together for cheaper? Anybody know some sites where I can find fenders and sideskirts and all the good stuff that I will need?

You can always look into the Seidl kit but I'm sure you will not be saving that much over OEM.

Was that just for the parts? Because the labor to do the OEM RS4 parts is usually even higher.

I found front fenders and bumper for about 2500.

That was just for the parts. I could part with about about 5 grand for that kit if included labour. I dont care if the parts are OEM just as long as they are OEM style.

I think the side skirts are going to be especially hard to find.

Well the problem is the rear 1/4 panels have to welded and molded in.

I'd just get someone to rework the fenders molding their own flares. The old school automobile restorer's can make anything out of sheetmetal. Then it's just a matter of oem front and skirts.

Thats not really an issue because my friend ownes a body shop down the street and does some kick-ass fender flares. So all I need is front quarters, front bumper and sides.

This is garbage fiberglass.

yeah, that kit is definitely a custom job, and iirc comes with like a million pieces. since the RS4s are avants (correct me if i'm wrong... i've been out of the B5 scene for a while), there is A LOT of custom fabrication going on to fit it in the rear. but $8k sounds about right.

OEM widebody on the sedan looks incredible. There is one around town here, the work was done by Pfaff and its stunning. What a ride.

Yeah, I used to love the reiger, now it just looks like shit in comparison. nothing against the reiger Its nice. but its nothing like the RS4.
So, how do you get the wheels to sit flush against the fenders afterward, just wider wheels or is there some sort of spacer?

Have to use wheels with a different offset or use big spacers.
