    i'm afraid i don't know for certain, but something's telling me that they are the same

    i'd just call an Audi dealer in the morning and ask their parts dept

    surely that would have been the sensible option?

    then call a different dealer lol

    some are very helpful and others are SH!T. i take it you're new to Audi ownership then lol... some will bend over backwards for you, and others aren't worth the petrol money you spend driving to them

    No i have had a few audis :), i usually use sanburns in Cov , for spares as the stealers are reddiculously priced !And in my opinion asking them(dealers) anything is like some sort of high security jokeathon! .I have had all the older golf gtis vr6 's etc etc .i am now converted to A3's after owning a couple of the older models ..Thanks for your help

    Sportback is the Audi name for all 5 door A3's
    Sport is the trim level of your car, so yes you can get a Sport Sportback!
    Sportline is what some people call S-line, its the trim level above sport.

    Hope that clears it up!?

    Sport models and S-Lines (and S3s now) have a sun blind in the rear parcel shelf.

    i owned a Sport for 5 years, and i've owned an S-Line for 7 months and i never used the sun blind once

    ergo save some cash and get a regular one, if it's cheaper
