My 1998 30V A4 Avant Q was rear-ended the other day and I need new bumper covers. I want to install front and rear OEM S4 bumpers.

Has anybody installed an OEM S4 bumpers on a pre-face-lift B5 A4 (96-97-98 without the separate fogs)?

A) FRONT BUMPER FOG LIGHTS:
My existing fogs are integrated into the main light kit rather than mounted seperatly into the bumper cover. When I buy the S4 fogs, how am I supposed wire these new fogs? Do I leave both sets connected?

Can you get S4 fogs online (and any wiring harness if necessary); or, do you have to go through a dealer?)?

B) REAR BUMPER:
Is the only difference on the rear the lower valance that mounts to the main cover?

Thanks!

the front bumper is a direct fit with no other modifications.
the fogs will have to be sourced by the dealership if you can't find them in the classifieds or ebay.
Wiring you can take the wiring off of the existing fogs and connect it to the s4 fogs once installed.

rear bumper from a sedan won't fit in an avant. so make sure it's from an avant

and yes the only difference is the lower valance is smoother(non textured)AFAIK
