    Hi folks, I'm new to the site, currently own a Focus ST-2 and am very close to ordering an A3 Sportback 2.0TFSI S-line. I'm keen to see a decent photo of the Black edition in black funnily enough.

    Realise it's early days on these but if anyone has one could they upload pls.

    Cheers

    TBH, pics never really show the curves and lines properly...

    Need to get ringing the Audi dealers and see if they get any in!

    Agreed, they should have darkened the chrome swirly bits inside the headlights.

    So to make it a black edition they have put the black grille on, done the wheels a darker shade and fitted tints? Is that all?

    If so then I reckon I could sort that on any A3 for less than £500! :rolleyes:

    Window tints £200
    Black grille £100
    Wheel refurb £200

    Sorted!


    I think they should call it the grey edition because that will be a nightmare to keep clean! :)

    You also get the xenon headlights as part of the Black Edition package, that's normally a £550 option.

    Not sure where you can get the grille for £100, it's a £300 option and I think the price in ETKA isn't far off that.

    Not a cost option but you also get the piano black dash inserts.

    Stafford Audi quoted me £130 for the black optics grille for mine, maybe they have gone up on the new ones!

    Sounds a good deal then if the Xenons are inc

    I've just ordered a 2.0 TFSI Black Edition.

    Only ordered it today though so mine ain't due til end of March!

    I'm desperate to see a few pics of a 3-door in the flesh too.

    Tints ruin the A3.

    There is a Phantom Black S-line similar to mine that I see sometimes but it has tints on the side and rear windows. It looks bloody awful

    I have been looking at a 170 quattro Black edition.

    I think you get a lot for £950 above the Sline spec

    It includes-

    Flat bottom multi func wheel

    Black Grill

    Xenons with Led running

    Piano Black trim

    Rear Tints

    Titanium coloured rs4 rims

    Bose

    I Love the photos of the black edition, I am tempted to go to my Audi dealer and get a cost to change for my car. Anybody got discounts on the black editions?

    Not likeing that titanium edition one bit!

    Its got S line badges but is as high a hummer, must be the rubbish US "bouncy" spec they have over there!

    Also i notice they are runnning 225/40/18 tyres, my boss has just took delivery of a new S line sportback with those wheels and its running 235/40/18 so the US model seems to have higher suspension and less tyre!

    I'm confused!

    I don't think the colour of that one helps. That and the fact the Yanks can't get 3-door models I don't think.

    Black Edition spec says 225/40/18. Standard S-Line suspension offers a 10mm drop from the Sport model.

    Just been told by my dealer that my order status is PRODUCTION CONFIRMED.

    Any idea what that is? Is it on the production line? Has been built? The order's confirmed and they might build it some time later this year??

    I'm still not a massive fan of the new facelift S-Line... I recently parked next to a black one in a multi storey. Don't like the re-positioned S-Line badges or mirrors. Definitely wouldn't swap my current S-Line for one but if i didn't already own one and could get one with a good discount i'd go for it. Black edition looks nice and the extras sound 'good value' (by Audi standards).

    I've just taken a photo of flat bottomed steerring wheel from the advert, but it looks .... like a flat bottomed steering wheel!

    I can post it up if you like?

    Oh, and I would just add that the car in the tv advert looks much better than the stock pictures earlier in the thread.

    It looks "mean as" with the LED DRL's [​IMG]

    Dealer suggested it'd be 2 or 3 weeks after production, so I'm hoping mid-March latest for delivery.

    Still nothing. I surf about 8 Audi sites a day, as well as checking Autotrader and the Audi used car site.

    Frustrating!

    Why not go for the S3 is there much price difference can get around 12% off a new one

    just personal choice....not really about the cash...although cheaper running costs & insurance did influence me...the S-line will do me just fine ta !
