What year was the first S-Line A3?
What year was the first S-Line A3?
I seem to remember S-line option became available mid-end '04.
It was certainly a relatively new option when I ordered my car end of '04.
Were the only differences between pre-facelift s-line and other pre facelift models....
Slightly lower suspension, Embossed Seats, S-Line Wheel, S-Line (RS6 Look) Wheels, Exterior S-Line Badges. Anything Else?
The bumpers were also slightly different I think
Off the top of my head...
S-line embossed, part leather seats.
Different steering wheel
Black interior headlining ( which was quite nice )
Er, think that's the lot.
I remember it was a £1000 option, which was a no-brainer.
The wheels alone must be worth most of that.
Wasn't the S-Line 3 door out before the sportback?
I remember ordering up a sportback sport with bigger wheels, leather interior and a few other options - when my lease company submitted it to Audi they came back and said the s-line was about to be released and would I prefer that, this was sometime September/October 04 I think
My Car is a July 04 S-line, and quite an early one. I don't have embossed seats (although they are part-leather) and I don't have S-line on the steering wheel...
My bumpers are also standard.
I did get:
18" sline alloys
piano black inserts
sline badges on sides of car
I think that's about it. S-line bumpers and embossed seats also came later. Other thing worth mentioning is that the early Slines (like mine) are not referred to as S-line on the V5, they come up as "Sport". I think the later adjustements coincided with the S-line spcified on the V5...
the alu inserts were standard i think and the piano black inserts were the option acording to the dealer when i got mine.
Wasn't the original S-Line in 2004 only available on the 3.2? It was just sold as an "A3 S-Line". As far as I know they released the S-Line packages for lesser models in late 2005.
Does any one want to swop the alu or black inserts for a set of wood ones? :unsure:
Mine was an '05 plate (March '05), ordered December '04.
At the time, you could get only get S-line in conjunction with DSG or quattro, which was a pain.
I wanted the S-line pack, but I didn't want quattro.
So I had to take DSG....:keule:
www.vagparts.com you're looking at £300 incl. VAT for the aluminium trim. I've looked into it myself and it's very pricey.
If you want to be a little more individual have a look at the fishscale trim.
oh yeah, just remembered that too, mind you i was lucky, I wanted DSG
Dont forget the original S Line had the rear spoiler as standard also. I had an 04 3.2 S line; was an excellent car!.
naaah, mine neither
i want one!
you should of had a spoiler thats what is listed in the june 04 price list, unless before this list they didnt have one.
States sline only on 3.2 & dgs tdi on the 3 door.
In the sportback oct.04 price list & broucher doesnt even mention the s-line option.
The first S line's had the hatch spoiler as standard, then they removed it and made it an option.
S-Line was available as an option originally for the 8P A3 but then became a specific model. My car is a 2005/05 and the V5 Sport Quattro but is fully S-Line specked.
here is a pic of my car WITH the standard spoiler (at the time!)
I reckon the spoiler was a no cost option on the 3 door only, mine and two others at work don't have them, all 05 plate sportback s lines
Aluminium trim was standard with S-lines and Piano black was a no cost option. Heres a copy of the Jul/Aug05 sales brochure showing the £1000 S-Line option and the £950 S-Line styling pack. Both were later grouped together and along with full leather interior could be had for alot less than the three combined before.
They must have changed it then as it was definately the other way round when I ordered mine (december 2004), does that co-incide with the big grille?
So......do all S-Lines have:
Did they have different steering wheels or the same wheel with just an S-Line emblem on bottom "Spoke?"
- Black roof lining
- Chrome Door sills with S-Line emblem?
The question above applies for the gear knob aswell.
Were there any other interior s-line insignia.
My S-line Steering wheel didn't have different colour stitching, I don't think.:ermm:
It was perforated leather though, as opposed to smooth leather.
