I was wondering if anyone would be generous enough to post the entire parts list needed for this conversion. I will specify that i am only doing the front end for now until i can afford to do the rear in the following month. Also, i am already aware that i need a hood/bonnet, Headlights, Grill, Bumper, undertray. However, i am unsure if i need an adopter harness for the front headlights as i already have xenon headlights (non afs) already, isn't that just plug n play? Also, new stops and seals i read somewhere but i am not very car savvy and kinda new to this, hence, part# for those would come in handy. Am i missing anything else?

This is the look i am going for but of course a different color and accents with RS5 Grill.
I do really think the facelift Caractere front bumper looks the bees knees, especially with a two tone color finish to mark of those side vents in the fog surrounds.

Can't help you with costs or parts, I would have thought it's cheaper to sell your car and buy a facelift version. Of course that's not as fun as modding your own car though.

Very true, I guess the alternative would be to look at a B8 RS5 bumper, or an aggressive lip kit. I'm looking to add some more aggressive lines to the car but I was wondering if it was close in price to just go ahead and facelift by the time I get a new bumper and possibly ecodes I'm just a few hundred away from a conversion I would think. But I definitely agree it's the bees knees, those headlights are much more "Iron Man" lol
