    A couple of question for you guys with new S-Lines

    1. If you opt for a multifunction steering wheel, does it still have the fancy stitching and S-Line logo?

    2. Does it come with a spare wheel as standard or is it the "tyre mobility system"?

    3. Anyone go for the aluminum gear knob?? Any pics?

    4. Just a general quesion......what's the general opinion on the heated seat option?

    Thanks,

    Roswell

    Re: A couple of question for you guys with new S-Lines

    heres some answers

    1) Yes mine has red and white stitching and an s-line logo at the bottom

    2) I have a spare wheel (looks like a space saver)

    3) Not me

    4) Heated seats - a good option for comfort (already used them twice this week)- i like that you can change the amout of heat (in my old mazda they were just on or off) - but they probably won't add much to the cars residuals!

    Owen - you got a multifunction S-Line wheel? I was under the impression that the multifunction and S-Line were mutually exclusive...

    Re: A couple of question for you guys with new S-Lines

    Hi

    Collect mine tomorrow, but have seen it already.

    Re questions :

    I have the multifunction wheel with logo and stitching. It is a manual car too. The new s-line wheel is only part perforated now though. Cost 160 (not clear in brochure though as it only mentioned DSG in my version, so had to ask Audi Customer Services to confirm).

    I have spare wheel

    Not seen the alu gear knob before, apart from in brochures.

    Heated seats - love them. Won't get money back but they are great in winter as they heat up almost instantly for a cold morning (know from previous A3 with them).

    OK - maybe it was multifunction + DGS paddles that wasn't available as S-Line. I didn't try to configure with a manual 'box. I have space saver spare too.

    Little Wing - I am sure dsg version is available too if you are thinking of one as that was the only version it mentioned in the price list when I ordered mine.

    Roswell - if I can tear myself away from driving all day tomorrow, I will take a few pics and post them for you.

    Rob - thanks, but I already have mine [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    Maybe the web configurator was wrong, but my dealer also thought that you couldn't get DSG + Multi wheel in S-Line. I have DSG S-Line, and you have Multi S-Line - does anyone actually have all three?

    3. I got it, well worth it IMO, sets the interior off nicely.

    Re: A couple of question for you guys with new S-Lines

    3. Had one on my last car. Cold in winter, too hot in summer. But looks v nice.

    4. Quite a nice feature on ultra cold days but hardly used them on my last Audi so decided not to go for them this time. Yet to try a winter without them though so maybe I'll regret that...

    Re: A couple of question for you guys with new S-Lines

    Could someone post a pic of the sportback DSG multi-function steering wheel with S-Line logo and stitching please - I'll take it to the dealer to prove it exists and see what he has to say...

    Re: A couple of question for you guys with new S-Lines

    Audi configurator is next to useless. I wanted the mf wheel and after being tolf you couldn't have it with DSG I found out that you can have one with the paddles. I will hopefully be able to prove it when I collect later this month. Car in build today [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/groovy.gif[/img]

    Re: A couple of question for you guys with new S-Lines

    On Page 18/19 of the A3 Sportback August price list, it clearly shows, for 160, an SLine Multifunction wheel being available for DSG models (see link below). Dealers......

    http://www.audi.co.uk/downloads/A3Sp...rice_List.pdf.

    I have now taken some pics of the wheel (manual version) but I am not able to upload photos into gallery at the moment (AS.net server problem I believe), so afraid you will have to wait to see them. When you do see a pic, it looks a lot better in the flesh than in a photo too!

    Re: A couple of question for you guys with new S-Lines

    I ordered my car back in Jan (DSG,S-line) and I'm sure I could have had an MF wheel as an option.
    I'm sure we discussed it,but decided against it when I dismissed cruise control.

    Re: A couple of question for you guys with new S-Lines

    It was probably a combination of me, the Audi configurator and the dealer all being a bit crap. I'm not overly bothered tbh, I quite like the clean look of the non-multi wheel. Hey-ho.

    Just gone through the configurator again and there still isn't an option for the multi-function wheel on 3.2 DSG Sportback Quattro. Good, innit?
