Advice on buying A4 SE compared to S-Line please (ride quality/ harshness)
Just a bit of history so you know what im used to/ coming from:
1st VW Golf 1.4
2nd BMW e46 M3
The M3s rear spring broke about 2 years ago and I replaced using eibachs (cheaper than OEM). The M3 had 19 " OEM alloys. Together with the eibachs, the ride quality was really poor especially on local/ bumpy roads.
The m3 was sold on the weekend (Car was getting old, 02 plate, not practical as 2 door and running costs both mpg and insurance, group 44 was getting too much).
Im looking at a Audi A4 (B8) 1.8t FSI. The SE cars are cheaper compared to the s-line but I am prepared to pay extra for the s-line package (the alloys look better, the car generally looks better on exterior, sports seats and different steering wheel etc.) My ONLY concern is the ride quality, there are lots of threads complaining how bad the ride quality is compared to SE.
For me coming from a lowered M3 with larger 19" wheels is the s-line THAT bad? I just cant justify paying extra for worse ride quality?
