    Fog Lights with DTM Bumper

    BUMPER INTEGRATION POSTED


    Hi Guys,

    Here is the DIY to finally keep your fog lights with the OEM DTM Bumper.

    Difficulty: 7
    Time: around 10 Hours

    What you need:

    OEM DTM Bottom Grille
    8E0 807 681 J Z9Y
    8E0 807 682 J Z9Y

    RS4 OEM Bottom Grille
    8E0 807 681 E
    8E0 807 682 E

    The Tools:

    Dremel + cutting tools
    Sand Paper
    Flat black paint
    Knife
    Fusor 143 + Gun

    Here is a close up of the specific tools

    Fusor 143


    Dremel Cutting Tools



    Start but cutting the mesh of the DTM grille


    Remove the forward frame of the RS4 grille


    Then, the rear upper part. Use the picture below as guide for the cut limit.


    The bottom part


    The rear part


    Now comes the most time consuming of the entire operation. You need to grind down the remaining of the mesh from the frame. Here is a close up of how he should look like


    And after a good hour, it should look like this


    Now you need to modify the rear of the grille


    Look closely and you will see the trace I made on the back. The result wanted is an even contour



    After more grinding and trimming, everything should look like this. Use sand paper to remove any mishap done with the Dremel


    Now trim the contour of the RS4 grille using the picture as template


    Note the indent done to the DTM frame to accept the fog housing of the RS4 grille


    And everything now should fit like a glove



    A picture from the back to show where I used the Fusor to secure both pieces (light gray)


    I bought 2 new fog because mine where in pretty bad shape. All 3 attachment tabs on the fog light needs to be trimmed down flush. Because on the RS4 the fogs are attached to the bumper and the grille comes on top, I fused with the Fusor the fog to the grille. 2 coats of flat black and voila. I will install them tomorrow on the car and will let you know if trimming of the bumper is required


    Now the installation on the bumper.
    Pretty straight forward. There is just a little bump that needs to be trimmed down on each side

    area to be trimmed


    View from the back


    and looks pretty good to me. I just have to remove all the plastic dust and reinstall on the car




    Let me know if any question
    Phil

    It's funny that you are starting this project, Sexican is thinking about getting the DTM bumper and I suggested RS4 grills and the trying to modify them since they look similiar.

    They do and they don't:
    The RS4 grille are apox. 1/2 inch wider but almost 1 inch longer. Should not be a big deal, I'll take care of that
    Because I am too lazy to remove my fogs (removed the bumper too many times for the LEd V3 project), I ordered a new set of fogs that should arrive end of next week.
    The curvature is almost the same

    Re: New Surgery: Fog Lights with DTM Bumper

    Someone needs to figure out how to get these or a variation of these fitted into the standard S-Line bumper without having to cut out the mesh and glue it to the original fog grille!

    I can't talk for the S-line but for the DTM, I am planning to keep only the outter frame of the DTM grill and custom fit the RS4 into it

    Phil...

    Quick Question.

    Do you use the same foglamp that was removed from the original bumper (in other words the OEM A4 B7 fog lamp) in the RS grille ?

    Or do you need to buy the RS fogs seperately ?? If so, part numbers PLEASE ?

    Thanks

    But I'm stil interested to know which fogs was used in the RS grille...

    * OEM RS fogs
    * OEM S-Line
    * OEM non S-Line (if different from S-Line)

    ???

    Or maybe the RS fogs = S-Line fogs = non S-Line fogs ???

    RS4 fogs:
    8E0 941 699 B Left
    8E0 941 700 B Right
    Above parts are also used for A4s from 2002-2005 and RS4 only.
    A4 fogs:
    8E0941699C
    8E0941700C
    For cars from 2006-2008 the parts listed above are used but not in RS4, they are also used in Sline bumpers.

    For more info just search www.audiwholesaleparts.com for these part numbers and it'll make more sense than I do

    Re: New Surgery: Fog Lights with DTM Bumper

    When I looked for RS4 fogs it gave me only these part numbers:
    8E0 941 699 B Left
    8E0 941 700 B Right

    When I search for A4 fogs it gave me these numbers which are the same as RS4
    8E0 941 699 B Left
    8E0 941 700 B Right

    and also the one that are made by Valeo with part numbers:
    8E0941699C
    8E0941700C

    When I searched on audiwholesaleparts.com it said that B parts are only for cars from 2002-2005 and RS4 2006-2008 and then C parts are for 2006-2008 and also sline cars.

    [QUOTE=neverfollow-rs4;4757769]When I looked for RS4 fogs it gave me only these part numbers:
    8E0 941 699 B Left
    8E0 941 700 B Right

    When I search for A4 fogs it gave me these numbers which are the same as RS4
    8E0 941 699 B Left
    8E0 941 700 B Right

    Same here
    There is 2 different brand of fogs that where installed in 2005-5 this is why it's confusing

    Does this mean that you use the normal A4 fogs in the RS grille ?? (because they're the same?)

    Or am I confussed now...
