    1. If you opt for a multifunction steering wheel, does it still have the fancy stitching and S-Line logo?

    2. Does it come with a spare wheel as standard or is it the "tyre mobility system"?

    3. Anyone go for the aluminum gear knob?? Any pics?

    4. Just a general quesion......what's the general opinion on the heated seat option?

    Thanks,

    Roswell

    heres some answers

    1) Yes mine has red and white stitching and an s-line logo at the bottom

    2) I have a spare wheel (looks like a space saver)

    3) Not me

    4) Heated seats - a good option for comfort (already used them twice this week)- i like that you can change the amout of heat (in my old mazda they were just on or off) - but they probably won't add much to the cars residuals!

    Owen - you got a multifunction S-Line wheel? I was under the impression that the multifunction and S-Line were mutually exclusive...

    Hi

    Collect mine tomorrow, but have seen it already.

    Re questions :

    I have the multifunction wheel with logo and stitching. It is a manual car too. The new s-line wheel is only part perforated now though. Cost £160 (not clear in brochure though as it only mentioned DSG in my version, so had to ask Audi Customer Services to confirm).

    I have spare wheel

    Not seen the alu gear knob before, apart from in brochures.

    Heated seats - love them. Won't get money back but they are great in winter as they heat up almost instantly for a cold morning (know from previous A3 with them).

    OK - maybe it was multifunction + DGS paddles that wasn't available as S-Line. I didn't try to configure with a manual 'box. I have space saver spare too.

    Little Wing - I am sure dsg version is available too if you are thinking of one as that was the only version it mentioned in the price list when I ordered mine.

    Roswell - if I can tear myself away from driving all day tomorrow, I will take a few pics and post them for you.

    Rob - thanks, but I already have mine /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Maybe the web configurator was wrong, but my dealer also thought that you couldn't get DSG + Multi wheel in S-Line. I have DSG S-Line, and you have Multi S-Line - does anyone actually have all three?

    Yup. But, mine is a Sportback if that makes a difference /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/noidea.gif

    3. I got it, well worth it IMO, sets the interior off nicely.

    3. Had one on my last car. Cold in winter, too hot in summer. But looks v nice.

    4. Quite a nice feature on ultra cold days but hardly used them on my last Audi so decided not to go for them this time. Yet to try a winter without them though so maybe I'll regret that...

    Could someone post a pic of the sportback DSG multi-function steering wheel with S-Line logo and stitching please - I'll take it to the dealer to prove it exists and see what he has to say...

    Audi configurator is next to useless. I wanted the mf wheel and after being tolf you couldn't have it with DSG I found out that you can have one with the paddles. I will hopefully be able to prove it when I collect later this month. Car in build today /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/groovy.gif

    On Page 18/19 of the A3 Sportback August price list, it clearly shows, for £160, an SLine Multifunction wheel being available for DSG models (see link below). Dealers......

    http://www.audi.co.uk/downloads/A3Sportback_Price_List.pdf.

    I have now taken some pics of the wheel (manual version) but I am not able to upload photos into gallery at the moment (AS.net server problem I believe), so afraid you will have to wait to see them. When you do see a pic, it looks a lot better in the flesh than in a photo too!

    I ordered my car back in Jan (DSG,S-line) and I'm sure I could have had an MF wheel as an option.
    I'm sure we discussed it,but decided against it when I dismissed cruise control.

    It was probably a combination of me, the Audi configurator and the dealer all being a bit ****. I'm not overly bothered tbh, I quite like the clean look of the non-multi wheel. Hey-ho.

    Just gone through the configurator again and there still isn't an option for the multi-function wheel on 3.2 DSG Sportback Quattro. Good, innit?
