    Hi Everyone,

    I'm just about to order a new A3 3 door(2006 model) and i'm having no joy from the Audi dealer.

    Can anyone confirm if the new s line package is available on all sport models - not just on the DSG and quattro? The Audi press release states it's a 1000 quid upgrade - but the dealers i have contacted have mixed views.

    Has anyone orderd a 2.0TDI manual sport SLine ?

    Thanks

    Matt

    When I ordered my tdi S-line I could not get a manual one.

    It was DSG and that's that.

    Perhaps Audi have relaxed this,which will hack me off a bit as I'm not the biggest DSG fan in the world...

    The TDI S-line has only ever been available with the DSG transmission. According to Audi UK website this has not changed with the facelift.

    Look again at the Audi website.
    Go to new cars, A3, configure your A3, click on S-Line then engine. You will see a 2.0TDi 6 speed manual. Its been available since December.

    Checked the Audi website - it says the 2.0TDI is only available as a DSG or quattro.

    Just spoke to two dealers - they have a new (june) price and specification that has not been implemented on the web. One said that the new A3 TDI 3 door sport manual is avlliable as an S-line (1000 quid).

    Had a look on the audi.de site - it also suggests is available on all sports.

    Thanks for all your help - but i'm still going round in circles. Anyone any other ideas?

    Just played with the configurator

    It goes like this;

    3 door S-line
    Quattro with 6 speed manual or front wheel drive with DSG.

    No 'normal' manual option.

    Sportback is still DSG or nothing.

    Just had an email from the dealer.

    As the Audi Press release states - the S-line upgrade will be avaiable for all varients of the Audi A3 sport. They have confirmed that a 2.0tdi sport can be upgraded to an S-line spec for and additional £1000 and for an additional £950 you can have a the new exterior package (new bumpers + spoiler)

    I rang the dealer and she confirmed that on the 2003 model range the s-line package was only avaiable on the "top price" a3 varients (the DSG + Quattro) but on the 2006 model it will be avaiable as an upgrade to all sport models. This specification car is avaaiable to order now on a 12 week delivery.

    Yeah, by strange coincidence I was inquiring about this today:

    "Dear Mr ***, many thanks for your interest in the A3. as promised please find pricing.

    Lead times are currently late july for orders placed now. we require just £1,000 deposit and handle all the registration etc.

    The cost for your specification will be £17,090, 2.0 tdi sport S line, incl rear park sensors, met paint 6 x cd, m/f st wheel, and we will be pleased to take your car in p/ex.

    I look forward to assisting further,

    Best regards,

    I assumed this was for manual non quattro as I dislike DSG and he said Quattro didnt add anything to resale value, will email in the morning for clarification about whether it comes with DSG/spoiler/skirt package etc etc...
