    Hello all,

    First post on the forum so be gentle :sly:

    I'm currently shopping for a B7 S-Line cabriolet or a CLK convertible with AMG body kit and alloys. If you like you could try and persuade me one way or the other although I can guess the answer I'd get on an Audi forum :happy:.

    Maybe some of you can help answer a simple question. As far as I can see, all of the B7 facelift S-Line saloon's and avants have the deep RS4 style front spoiler. I know the RS4 ones are more agressive, but you know what I mean.

    Why is it that most of the B7 S-Line cabriolets don't seem to have this front spoiler, instead looking just like the SE models? I know it doesn't seem to be specific to the age of the car as I've seen 2006 cars with the S-Line front spoiler and 2007's without.

    It's really annoying me as I'd prefer the S-Line spoilered model but there don't seem to be as many for sale. If I didn't get this version I'm guessing that the conversion wouldn't be cheap. I don't want to pay S-Line money for a car that doesn't look like one. Was it an optional extra on the convertibles?

    Here's an S-Line with the normal SE front...

    AFAIK the S-line Special edition or final edition have the front end that you are looking for. Mine does ;)

    Thank for that. I just can't believe it's not standard on all S-Lines.

    The annoying thing is that when looking at adverts it can be hard to tell the difference when the car is black because the S-Line front doesn't stand out as much!!!

    The reason is that all S-Line A4s do not necessarily come with the S-Line Exterior Styling Kit. I know it sounds a bit weird, but that is the answer.

    so, basically, an A4 S-Line Cabrio did not get the more agressive front bumper, or the slightly different rear diffuser unless you ordered the Exterior Styling Pack.

    The A4 Cabrio S-Line Special Edition (such as mine and also gjwell's) and the Final Edition both came with this styling pack. Other than that, you just need to check the individual cars. I am amazed at the number of S-Line A4s that do not have the styling pack fitted.
