    I am looking to upgrade a few of my parts to s-line spec including the wheels, rear valance and spoiler but am unsure about the front bumper. Is there any difference on the 8P1? Mine is a 04 plate TDI Sport

    thanks in advance

    haha i thouht that was what you meant lmao , back to the Q are you thinking of changing your front end to the s-line full grill model or are you on about the spllt grill model like you have got now if your on about the split grill then the bumper is exactly the same just has got a s-line badge on it thats all

    I would love to change to the full grill but i cant justify that kind of outlay to a new car tbh. id rather wait a couple of years and just buy a newer higher spec model! So the exterior differences then are - spoiler, rear valance, side skirts, ride height and alloys? and interior wise its steering wheel, seats and roof lining?

    almost right there wheels 18's , ride height is lower 15mm i think than the sport , only bodywork difference is a few badges and spoiler on 8p1 s-lines , interior roof lining is the same as the sport,seats the same maybe different material ie part leather , badge on the steering wheel and the alu trims thats all really as early s-lines are sports with s-line package as an extra

    ah fair play. Well ive got s-line springs fitted, the newer s-line 18" alloys, an S3 spoiler and am about to get the rear valance so exterior wise its there then! are there no side skirts on the s-line then? The difference with the seats is that the s-line have "s-line" embroided into the seats - mine are full leather though so wont be changing them! Will look to change the steering wheel at some time though that is very expensive! You mention the alu trims - which ones are different?

    thanks for the help btw

    nope no sideskirts on any s-line only on the S3 , the alu trims are brushed aluminium , again almost right they are only on the seats on later s-lines as the s-line wasnt a model only a trim spec on early cars but the seats are no different even on later cars only with s-line on them as you said otherwise the seats are all the same

    Just been looking at some other pictures - some of the 8P1 s-lines have a grey plastic rear valance and some have the painted one. Is this right? or should all s-lines have the grey plastic valance?

    the votex front is a nice mod for the 8P1 and 8P2 non-S-Line cars. if i still had my 1.6 it would have had a votex front spoiler by now

    My car has the full votex kit on it have a look on the grill post again to see sideskirts and front valance. It also has a rear bumper valance and the rear screen spoiler included in that kit and I'm getting the extended tail pipes put on too
