    Bad news Wife rear ended someone today and poof there goes my grill, bumper and hood. It was only a 10mph bump but that was enough.

    The mod junky in me is thinking an RS conversion. Sad thing is I just installed an RS grill last week.

    Any suggestions links etc please send them my way.

    Sorry to hear that. On a positive note, time for rs6 front bumper?

    Also don't forget your diminished value claim.

    Pop the headlight washer caps out and sell them to me lol.

    Definitely do the RS6 bumper. Can't see it being any more than a replacement OEM bumper.

    Diminished value of the car?

    Any good sites to find the RS6 bumper?

    Thanks!

    Diminished value claim pays you the lost value due to having an accident on the vehicle history report.

    I recommend that you have your trusted body shop paint it. A friend ordered it painted and said it was bad and he had it repainted.

    Diminished value is a lot harder to negotiate when the accident is your fault, in an at-fault state. It's also going to be difficult to argue because the accident won't show up as anything serious. You can really go after diminished value when there is structural and or frame damage, and that is what is going to show up on a CarFax or whatever. If its minor enough, consider fixing it without making a claim. Check with your insurance company, its worth asking. That was you that just posted the pictures of the S grill last week> I remember and that sucks. Shit happens, that's why we have insurance.

    Most insurance companies will not pay diminished value for your vehicle when the wreck is your fault. I know my insurance (USAA) has a stipulation in their policy stating this explicitly. Worth a shot to ask your company, but don't keep your hopes up. As others have stated, consider paying out of pocket depending on the extent/cost of the damage and the offset of your deductible.

    Sorry to hear about your car. I'm 10 weeks out from my car being totaled and still have not been able to finalize everything. :/

    You could try Europrice. Just avoid the chinese stuff. Recently bought a chinese RS6 rear diffuser and it took tons of modification to fit.

    I found some on EBay shipped from CA but they all seem to be non compatible with my PDC. Can I modify to make work?

    I would definitely try to find one with the PDC holes. I don't think it would be easy to make those sit nicely in drilled holes in the bumper.

    Will do. Another issue is some bumpers donít come with fog lights. Except I donít have fog lights on my S6. Hmmm

    Lots of the kits come with the fake foglight blanks that look like projector lenses. Or you could always retrofit some fog lights. Someone did that on their S6 not too long ago and it looked great.
