    Removing front bumper to swap grill- what else to do while it's off?

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hey guys- going to an RS6 grill on my A6 this weekend, along with adding the platypus license plate mount(I'm in NYS, have to have the front plate....) so I am removing the bumper. I am planning on swapping out my DRL to LED, and potentially my fogs to LED as well- I also need to trace a slight oil leak up front. Any other things to look for as long as I will have that all off? It's a 4.2L if that matters.... Thanks in advance!

    Thank you guys- so belts, a louder horn- and I'll make sure I hit the crash bar with black rattle can- sounds like a good time- plus looking for the oil drip- hoping it's harmless and not the oil cooler...... I've only owned her a month!
