    Question Why do some B7 S-Line Cabrio Have the S-Line Front Bumper & Others Have the SE One?

    As far as I can see there seems to be no real pattern as to why some S-Line cabs have the nicer (IMO) S-Line fron spoiler/bumper and other S-Lines have the SE bumper?!

    I'm sure this has been done to death but I'm sure someone knows why.

    and now the obvious question..

    ...Is an S-Line front spoiler from a saloon a direct fit for an S-Line cab that has the SE bumper?

    Obviously I know that the foglight surrounds are different, but is there anything else?

    Any help would be much appreciated

    Cheers,

    J

    Right I can answer this as I have an s-line cab with an SE bumper.

    On some earlier models audi has a shortage of s-line bumpers so fitted SE one's, it is random to if you got either.

    Yes the saloon will fit, many have updated to an s-line one or added a Cupra R splitter.

    Thanks for the replies peeps.

    I looked at an 06 plate S-Line Cabrio lately and that had the S-Line front bumper on it, but now I've bought a nicer 07 plate S-Line Cabrio and its got the SE bumper on it. Strange!

    Think I'll look at the possibility of fitting an S-Line front bumper sometime in the future.

    Is there that much of a difference other than removable fog surrounds?

    That and the bottom lip part of the spoiler are missing on the SE one.
