    Hey guys

    Just been looking on Autotrader, Pistonheads etc as i'm still looking at the possibility of getting an A5 one day

    One thing i can't seem to work out is the difference between the Sport and the S-Line models

    I'm looking at the 3.0TDI engine and the specs seems pretty much the same

    Can anyone enlighten me?

    They present this quite nicely in the brochures- which you can view PDFs of on the Audi website.

    Here you go - pages 16 and 17.

    At a quick glance of S Line over Sport its;
    - S Line sport suspension
    - Black headlining
    - Nicer inlays
    - Perforated leather gearstick
    - Perforated leather steering wheel
    - Milano leather sport seats as standard
    - S Line door trim
    - Sportier bumper, rear diffuser, side skirts
    - LED rear lights
    - Xenon headlights with LED DRLs
    - Optional silver stitching on upholstery
    - And ofcourse (love that they list this as a feature :p) S Line badges

    As far as I remember, when ordering a new car the trim upgrade is cheaper than the Xenon lamps alone, so it's a no brainer if you're going to get that anyway. The Black Edition is a less dramatic upgrade from S Line, but it really depends on the equipment you'd otherwise pay for and whether that totals as more expensive than the package.

    Hope that helps! :)

    Cheers Ben

    I'm looking 2nd hand anyway, can't justify the price of a new one

    All the pictures look exactly the same from the ones i've been looking at :laugh:

    Ah, different story then! It might depend on the year but ultimately you will probably get a better deal on a second hand sport- with enough of a difference to add stuff yourself later if you want.

    The biggest difference is the headlamps as its possible to get a Sport without Xenon/LED... where as S-Line has them as standard. If you can get a Sport with Xenon/LED headlamps, then you're set! ;)

    Xenon is top priority, can't go back to standard halogen

    As long as it's low-ish mileage, has the 19" or bigger wheels, leather, DSG, satnav, xenons and is white, then i'm set :laugh:

    Something like this would do nicely

    They can be added as an option on purchase, just not easily retrofitted.

    The Sline lowered suspension is optional on the facelift. Was it standard on the previous shape?

    I'd love to see some pictures!
