I'm on the hunt for an A3 at the moment and really after a bit of looking around I'm pretty much set on getting an S-Line, just because I think it has that little bit of an edge in terms of looks over other models and also I do like the half leather seats. I did try an SE and it just didn't feel that special.
However, I'm having a right pain trying to even get my hands on one. There have been a few I've seen but every time I ring up they've already gone.
I'm looking for between an 04 and 07 with up to £7k to spend - it seems doable, if you're quick.
However, I have noticed there's a lot of sports with sline kit and half of the time it's not listed as a s-line, presumably because whoever has put it up for sale has just used the number plate checker function for the description.
Which brings me onto my next thing, a lot of cars that look like S-lines show as Sports, you check the number plate comes up as sport but obviously and blatantly has s-line kit including badges and embossed seats. Are these true s-lines?
For example, I'm looking at this and while it comes up as a sport it does have apparent sline gear:
Audi A3 2.0 TDi Sport 3dr DSG Diesel Hatchback 2005
However, I have also noticed it doesn't have your usual front s-line style bumper or a rear spoiler?
Can anyone help? Are there facelift revisions or optional extras I need to be aware of?
For me, an sline should have bumpers and spoilers like this?
