Did Audi ever offer the A3 1.9TDI in S-Line trim?

    Just having a nose about and can't seem to find any in this spec. All other engine combo's were offered in S-Line. Anyone know why this is?

    Surely didnt have anything to do with hp? the 1.6FSI only had 10hp more...:tocktock:

    i think they did its just the 2.0tdi was very popular because of the power , im sure you can get most engines in the s-line just may be hard to find

    Must admit when I was looking, the highest trim I found a 1.9tdi in was sport.

    So a genuine 8P2 1.9TDI S-line does not exist? only early 8P3's with 1.9's?

    as far as i'm aware... there are a couple of ppl on here with pdfs of all the brochures. if you ask them to send you some maybe you can flick thru and have a look.

    maybe a conversion project is in order? tho in all honesty with you i wouldn't bother. just get a 2.0 TDI S-Line. less hassle and more power.

    I have a March 2008 brochure here, and the S-Line was only avaliable in 2.0TDi 140, 2.0TDi 170 and 2.0TDi 170 Quattro. The 1.9TDi 105bhp was avaliable upto the Sport model...

    In the May 2009 brochure the S-Line could be had with the 1.6TDi 105bhp engine which by then had replaced the 1.9TDi

    Nice one audicruiser, confirmed my thoughts. Wonder why it wasn't availible when everything else was.

    I was just wondering because of the things I've heard about the 1.9. easily 50+mpg, can be re-mapped to the same power as the 170 (on stock internals?) and the smaller turbo esentially means more petrol like performance. Plus they seem to be a few £k cheaper than other diesel's.

    Thansk for the info lads!

    I've just looked in the 04/07 brochure and there's no mention of any restriction on the S-Line trim availability but on the Audi Approved Used list there doesn't seem to be any 1.9 S-Lines available. I wasn't bothered about the S-Line trim when I got mine as it doesn't really come with any great extra toys.

    Thats interesting to know, cheers for that andy. I've googled throughly and can't seem to find anything that relates to a factory 1.9 S-line. I've never seen one new or used and I've been looking for a while.
    Hmmm...
