    ^^ what he said. S4 is more or less the same as the TQS but 6 speed and V6 TT, otherwise more or less the same.

    and on the steering wheel, surely someone wouldn't go to that much effort. It's the half leather option as well. How do I find the true model of my car then?

    Our cars are pre s line, just sports. The s4 has 6 speed and different brakes too.

    As we are trying to tell you, you have a 1.8t Quattro Sport.
    AKA mini s4, anything else had had the badhes added.

    The TQS didn't have the S4 bodykit either!

    Did the TQS use the same brakes and suspension as the S4?

    No TQS has non vented rears and 288mm fronts, also the front uprights are steel unlike the aluminum S4 ones.

    S4 had cast iron uprights, only the b5 rs4 got the alloy uprights then all the later cars...from 2001-on.

    are you kidding??

    its the difference between 150 bhp (aeb) and 265 (agb)..... plus all the things audi thought it best to provide you (the owner of such a car) with to stop you from killing yourself!

    TQS is 180 bhp and AJL not 150 but identical to an AEB.

    And the TQS is different as it was only produced from 99-01 and was a special uk edition so makes it very desirable IMHO, S4's are all over the world.

    yep the badge on the steering wheel. So is it possible to get the s4 body kit for a avant a4... For all of you in the know and find these questions stupid my apologies but I'm new to the Audi Brand and trying to learn.

    Audi wouldn't have fitted the S4 bodykit as a factory option, but that's not to say a previous owner didn't fit one. Here's an old pic of mine for reference:

    I don't have the s4 body kit. Well I don't think so anyway, just thought it be a nice mod to do.

    I do like the front bumpers. I've seen a couple of front and rears on ebay... Have to say would be a great upgrade as long as they fit lol

    Yeah the front and sideskirts will fit either only the rear bumper is specific. You will need the bumper shocks and side clips/guides for the S4 bumpers
