    Shall I trade in my A3 SB Sport for a A3 S Line with high spec?

    In two minds of what to do!

    Currently have the following spec...

    A3 1.6TDI SB Sport Scuba Blue
    Comfort Pack

    Looking at trading it in for the following....

    A3 1.6TDI SB S Line Scuba Blue
    • Hill hold assist
    • LED headlights
    • B&O Sound system
    • Tech pack with Audi Connect
    • Tyre pressure monitoring
    • Interior Light pack
    • Front/rear sensors and Park Assist
    Whats everyones thoughts? Dealer has offered fair deal considering I'm under a 3 year plan.

    Looked at retrofitting some options but very pricey and not always done as well as a factory fit.

    Would certainly add Comfort Pack. And if one can afford to why not.....

    If you're looking to buy a stock car then its a nice spec. However if It was me and I was ordering a new car then I would cut a few options (like LED lights) to get the 184 engine. The driving pleasure will increase enormously.

    Not a lot but 5% off the price which is good, plus surprisingly getting a fair bit back for the car I have had for 4 months!

    If you looked at retrofitting options, does that mean that the order has already been placed? eg, is it a cancelled order, or used car?

    5% is OK, but you'd expect that anyway - I got more than that when placing my order originally. You could try pushing for more.

    Voice of reason - NO
    Same engine, won't get you anywhere quicker.

    All this is going to do is -
    1/ Cost lots of money to change the car.
    2/ Costs lots of money on extras you don't really need.
    Its just part of being a member of a forum where everyone's adding extras to say look at my spec, don't feed off the hype........

    Unless your going to say you've had the car three years?
