    Hello all,

    Newly registered on here as I'm looking at A3 8P S Line/Sport 2.0 TDI Sportbacks to replace my Polo 9N 1.9 TDI Sport.

    Some of you may know me from other forums, particularly Edition 38.

    I have a million questions that need answering so I have a tonne of searching the forum to do as I'm sure the answers are around here somewhere

    Cheers!

    Thanks mate.

    I'm looking at 54 reg cars onward, post facelift. The main questions I have right now are:

    - The S-Line bumper is different to the Sport but not on all S-Lines that are advertised. Is there a year cut off that I'm missing? Fake S-Lines?
    - Is DSG and/or Quattro worth having? I tried a DSG car briefly once and it did feel like it was driving me but I expect you'd get used to that. Does it use more fuel like the figures suggest?
    - Is a well equipped Sport (ie. with leather Sport seats etc etc) missing anything an S-Line has? Especially if I'm likely to be putting on different wheels and coilovers on day one?

    All answer appreciated. (there will be more )

    Forgot to add my name's Robin btw.

    I've found the answer to the S-Line bumper question. No point in going for an early 8P2 S-Line over a well equipped Sport

    Sport or S line?

    hi robin welcome to the forum , the main differences in sport/s-line are , sport spec plus 18" 5 spoke alloys , alu interior trims , lowered suspension,half leather , rear spoiler , perforated leather gear knob and steering wheel other than that as sport spec , as on early sports like mine s-line was a package ontop of the sport not a dedicated model like later on ie 2005(55) onwards , 2006 they introduced the s-line car with the bodykit , hope this helps matey any more Q's ask away in the 8P section
    regards
