S6 vs tree
1 Attachment(s)
Hoping someone could confirm for me, is the bonnet on a 1995 S6 the same as any other model from that year ?
I think itís just the wings and bumpers that differ.
If so, can anyone recommend where a new bonnet could be purchased ?
(Cutting a long story short, having left my car at a local garage for various work, a neighbouring tree decided it didnít like my car:cryin: The garage acknowledges it wasnít like that when I dropped it off, but 6 weeks have currently been lost with euro car parts saying a new bonnet will arrive in 7 days:fire: )

That's a complete pain whats happened there!

The bonnets are the same it's only the front wings and bumper that differ. :tup:

Spink may well be a worth contacting- not new, but if my 100 bonnet is anything to go by, they're pretty robust used.

Many thanks for the reassuring feedback, though I’ll be trying my hardest to make sure the garage stumps up for a new bonnet. The real irony is that I had the wings, bonnet and bumper resprayed following a slight whoopsie I gave the bumper in a previous batch of snow (the tree collapsed onto it after being overloaded with snow from the ‘beast from the east’ !)

I've certainly got used bonnets but as it's not your fault I would be demanding a OEM new one myself, I'm sure they are still available? , pattern body panels will probably not be rustproofed like the genuine ones. Original C4 a/s6 bonnets do have a habit of rotting quite badly along the seam around where it meets the wing even though I presume they are galvanised

They're 490,28 EUR (4A0823029D) from Audi Tradition if that helps.
