    Logbook says sport but its an s-line?

    Does anyone else have this problem and is it fixable?

    I have just noticed that my A3 Quattro S-line's v5 says that its a sport, however its an s-line with s-line seats ect... If I ring up the DVLA will they change it?

    I have spoken to Audi and they have confirmed to me that it is manufactured as an s-line, but does everyone else's say its a sport instead of an s-line?

    If someone can let me know if there's says s-line or not, and if it does then ill give them a call tomorrow.

    Surely that's wrong though, as it is actually in-fact an s-line, was registered as an s-line, and the DVLA have made a cock up?

    I used to know someone who worked at a car dealership who told me mistakes do happen. 2 cars come in, both the same model and colour. They have plates that are a few digits apart. One is a 1.4 and one is a 1.6. Can you guess what sometimes happens?

    but did audi register it as an s-line ?
    you only have there word for it.
    if dvla have made the cock up they will have all the paperwork from audi on there computer and will change it if its there fault

    i had an old b7 2004 one of the first this was on the v5 as a sport but it had everything s-line from factory sales invoice said s-line but could not get it changed

    Try calling the DVLA, if they say they cant change it then you need to have a conversation with whoever you bought it from - thats if it was advertised and sold as an S Line?

    but surley you would look at the v5 and do a hpi check then you would have known it was down as a sport and not s-line as you thought ?

    Apparently dvla don't change the model spec,

    but they did change my Vw which was a 1.9 on the logbook to a 2 litre once I sent them the confirmation letter from vw along with a cover letter to the dvla

    Has it been imported?

    I had a 1.8T 8L which had been imported and wrongly registered by the previous owner as a 1.8T. Insurance was cheap and insurance company was happy with it because it wasn't engine swapped.

    Nope . My main concern is with the re-sell (if i ever decide to sell it). Personally i dont mind what it says as i know its an s-line, but selling it as a s-line when it says its a sport wont go down very well i should imagine.

    I have the same issue too. Registered as Sport even though it is clearly an S-Line.

    Was told that because mine is a 2006, it was when Audi offered S-Line upgrades as an option for the Sport rather than as a separate model like it is today.

    Never thought about ringing Audi though to see what they registered it as though.

    Ok so have an update. I called the DVLA, and they said they would be happy to change it for me if i get proof from audi. I then called audi who are sending me proof that it is an s-line and confirmed that it is. I then only have to send back my v5 with audis letter to get it changed.
    Im happy now

    Most (maybe all slightly older) s-lines are called "sport" on the logbook. This is because s-line used to be an optional extra/pack that could be added to the sport model/trim level, and not an actual model itself.
    So even though s-line is now a model/trim level on its own the way they are registered on logbooks is still as if they are just an optional extra of the sport model.
