    RS Front Bumper conversion

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Audiziners,

    I'm trying to do a RS front bumper conversion and came across this listing - https://www.ebay.com/itm/AUDI-A6-S6-...K/183182541792

    Does anyone have experience with this seller and product? I looked at XenonUK's site but he no longer sells the conversion kit with the front grill.

    From what I've been told the aftermarket bumpers require some finessing and additional modification to fit properly
    Life is too short to drive boring cars.

    Xenox at least has various pictures on their website, one in particular doesn't show good fitment but I'm sure a good bodyshop could do a clean install.

    I'd beware of the ad grammar being like chicken scratch and the company is based in California, plus it's free freight shipping. Last time I had a bumper shipped freight (OEM RS4) it was like $200+

    just my .02

    I know there are some that have bought from them, though finding reviews isn't easy.

    If you want a real quality one, go to https://bk-motorsport.com/ . They are local in so cal and I personally know the owner. He used to be a rep for ABT so you know its quality. Considering doing the same on my C7.5 S6 too so I went down and checked it out. Quality was OEM level and made of the same material. Definitely check them out!

    If your changing the complete bumper, just be aware that if you have ACC installed - with real radar detectors - you will need to have a system calibration carried out by the dealer when you move them from the OEM bumper to the aftermarket RS one.

    This is the only thing thats put me off changing the bumper

    Hmmm, interesting. What happens if you don't do this? At least not right away.

    And possibly crash or the ACC will pick up objects in another lane and brake check you for no reason etc. I had this conversation yesterday with a friend of mine who worked as a head Audi tech for years.

    Hope so, right now I'm just doing the grill and they were talking about the ACC calibration for that. Would prefer not to have to redo it if it didn't need it.

    Iíve never had an issue with BK Motorsports. This was my second front bumper conversion (previously Avant A4), and Iíve referred a few friends to them and havenít heard anything bad on their end. The only thing I wish they did have was install instructions or pics BUT in all itís not hard to figure out where all the pieces go.

    Oh, and if you have a front mount camera some modification is necessary...

    Someone recently did a good write up on this - forget who.... - but specifically for the BK bumper conversion. He noted that there was definitely some finessing needed and he had a very good body shop that was able to fit it in well. Not nearly close to plug n' play - i was also looking at this.

    EDIT - found the post from madyspop - https://www.audizine.com/forum/showthread.php/595264-Random-Pic-of-your-C7-RIGHT-NOW?p=13097065&viewfull=1#post13097065

    I have my BK Motorsport RS bumper en route, I think I've done a fair amount research on this and have come to a couple conclusions:

    - fitment won't be 100% with ANY of these manufacturers, but BKM seems to have the best fit anecdotally
    - ACC shouldn't be adversely affected UNLESS you have an aggressive drop, I've read that within ~10mm via vcds throws no codes?
    - the best write-up I've found is here, very comprehensive: https://www.audizine.com/forum/showt...all-RS6-Grille

    I think I bought from this eBay seller. I had it installed when I had the car wrapped - they needed to remove the bumper anyway fir the wrap. The body shop said it fitted without much fuss.

    Quality/durability Iíd say is prob on par with stock. I donít have much to compare it to as I have always used BKM. Itís my daily, and itís holding up pretty good. Just the usual stupid rock chips or dings, but thatís Vegas life (nothing but dirt and rocks around here).

    Hey guys,

    Iím new to this forum, but just went through RS6 conversion on my A6 and can share some thoughts about it. Actually BK Motorsport is selling the wrong shape bumpers (if you are picky and paying attention to details). Their front bumpers are moulded from RS7, not RS6 by the looks of it. Just check the side of it and also the plastic bit in the lower grill. It must be L shape, not D shape. From what I see, only thebigwawa has got the correct shape bumper (those red L shape bits are the ones Iím talking about) The rear bumper diffuser is also wrong shape and have those ugly protruding fake exhaust pipes that I hate. I bought my kit from XenonzUK and even if it was the closest mould to the real thing, still had to do shit loads of adjustments and cutting to make it fit (even had to grind a little corner of the bonnet!) The only thing that helped, that itís made from the same material as OEM bumpers and are a bit easy to work with compared to fiberglass bumpers. There are few other companies, selling those kits, but what Iíve heard, theyíre even more pain in the ass to fit.
    As for ACC, yes, more than likely youíre gonna need to calibrate your ACC radars after changing the front bumper, which is a big headache for me at the moment. I was quoted ~£400 to do it here in UK and still think that itís total bull****!!! So if anybody can tell me how I can do it without them ripping me off big time, would be greatly appreciated. I know ideally it has to be done with expensive calibration board, but heard that it can also be done with VAGCOM and a little bit patience ;) And until I will sort it out, Iím gonna have not only ACC, but also normal cruise control inoperational, as itís all connected :(
