    Do I go S-Line or Black Edition?

    Basically, money no object in terms of buying it would you go for the basic S-Line or Black Edition?

    It would be a 2009-2010 and that's about it.

    Just wandered what people would go for.

    Cheers.

    I went for the black edition, mainly for the black pack and extras u get with the car ie xenons, flat bottom steering wheel etc.
    U should get an s line cheaper than this if its what ur after, plus maybe have a better paid for extras on the car.
    If u like rotor alloys these came standard on the 60 plate onwards.
    Really its up to yourself what u like

    The things selling the black edition to me at xenons, bose and black pack.

    Gotta be honest, I prefer the pre-60 plate alloys. Either the standard s-line ones or in titanium.

    Got to be a Black Edition!
    I prefer the earleir titanium alloys too. I've got a friend with the rotors on a white Black Edition, which look really nice, but we both prefer the titaniums on the black car.
    I'm probably in the minority here though as the rotors have a big following.

    I have a black edition, I just feel it stands out far better! And you get all the good little extras like the bose speakers, flat bottom steering wheel and piano black interior trim

    I wanted a Black Edition, but I was finding that they were reasonably high mileage (as they are ex fleet cars), yet they were still highly priced.

    Found my v. good spec S Line Quattro with half the mileage (albeit older) around £3k cheaper

    Black Edition for sure, the difference it makes on my S3 compared to non BE is unreal

    I'd prefer a non BE myself provided it has LED xenon's.
    FBMFSW is also quite high on my list but I cant be arsed with the tints and detest rotors!
    My S3 is a 58 plate so no BE option anyway.

    Black Edition. Sexy.
    Black Pack.
    Xenons + Daytime Running Lights + Coming Home/Leaving Home Lights
    Bose
    Rotors - Didn't like them at first but absolutely love them now. Glad I didn't opt for the older ones.

    Black edition all day every day. I also prefer the older titanium rims (not just because I have them) subtle differences make it stand out over the s line. xenons, flat bottom steering wheel and bose is a real God send!

    Black Ed with the ti RS4 style alloys, that's what I have and I prefer it over the standard S3. Gives you that stealthy ninja nightrider feel
