    Sunstrip

    Ok - I'm new to these posts but got a quick question...

    Until last week I was driving the 2005 A3 1.6FSI Sport which had the gradient sunstrip along the front windscreen. I've just recently picked up my new car (A3 2.0T Quattro Sline) and noticed that there is no sunstrip.

    Is this normal for the Sline range or does the whole A3 range no longer come with the Sunstrip?

    Yeh I know - it's really no big deal... Was actually just curious as my last one had it and the new one doesn't! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

    I think it now comes with a certain pack or spec but I can't remember what. Bit tight really!

    As per Gareth H, they deleted it on 2006 models and is now only available if you get the rain / light sensor pack I think.

    Mean, but you don't really notice it.

    I have 2006 A3 2.0T with the rain/light sensor. And I have no sunstrip or tint at the top.
