Has anyone done this? Looking to get an RS5 front bumper with grilles, wondering what fitment issues I might run into. Somebody mentioned RS5 fenders were wider so fitment may be an issue? Can anyone chime in?

You'd need RS5 fenders, then fender liners, as well as the bumper, and under-body panels as well. Then your front wouldn't quite match the rear, since the fenders would be slightly wider.

Check out the Xenonx-UK bumper if you want the RS look.

I'll do that.

I have this set up, fitment isn't perfect but only if you really look. Overall happy with it. Plenty of pictures on my IG

Do you have the OEM RS5 setup fitted to your S5? Not perfect fitment with the non-RS5 fenders and quarters? Or you're saying you have the Xenon-UK kit- that fitment is less than perfect?


I read the Xenon-UK was pretty perfect fit?

reiger rs front is another option next to xenon. fitment isn't perfect either but if u have a good body shop they can get it as close as possible. none of these aftermarket bumpers require RS fenders. they bolt onto your stock fenders

I have the xenon- UK. the oem rs5 bumper from UK rs5 08-12 would fit because of the headlights. But not worth shelling out over $5k for . And as @bknewtype said before fitment is good but not perfect. You wont notice that much my shop did a good job. You will be overall happy with fitment.

I knew the other person was wrong on the fender thing it just seems like a lot of people do this mod and no issues on fender has come up, that I've seen. I notice the fog lights are not there, is this something you can tune out? Ideally I'd like to find a bumper and grilles without breaking the bank but we'll see.
