    Hey chaps, I've been looking into upgrading/lowering my suspension and knowing the difference in standard ride height between the s-line and sport suspension, I was worried when looking at my V5 log book to see my car is listed as a sport? Has anyone else got a genuine s-line and what does it say in your log book? I haven't parked next to an s-line yet to see if there's a difference which would be the easiest thing to do. I want to put new shocks and springs on to lower it but want to know how much to lower it depending if its a sport or s-line. Oh and thank you if you suggest it but I don't want coilovers, I had them on my track car before and that was enough hassle for me. Also is there any difference between the quattro and FWD height? Cheers Rob.

    Its 2007 (57) everything on it is s-line like seats, wheels, steering wheel, bumpers etc.

    Anyone on here who works at Audi I could give the reg or chassis number to and they could confirm for definite one it is? Cheers Lingy

    As lingy says, older s-lines were Sports with the added option of the "s-line package". S-line wasn't actually a model, just an upgraded Sport.
    Then Audi made the s-line into a model of its own.
    Not sure if the log book details were changed though.

    To find out for sure if yours is a Sport that has been converted buy a past owner or if it was an s-line from factory call Audi and quoting your reg number ask them to give you a price on something that only s-lines came out of the factory with... i.e. the main grille with s-line logo or the rear spoiler.
    If your car has been turned into an s-line by the owner (like I have done to mine) they won't show a grille with logo or spoiler as being available for your car. But if it was an s-line from factory then they will.


    As for the height difference between FWD and quattro.... As far as I know there is no difference. Sport is 15mm below standard and s-line is a further 10mm below Sport. Regardless of FWD / Quattro.

    There is a difference when lowering though. You will find that the springs for FWD lower up to 50mm, but for Quattros they only offer a max of about 35mm.

    You will have S-Line suspension on a 07 car as it was an actual model in it's own right by then. The early 05 cars were the Sport's with bigger wheels and badges...

    I suspect your car looks like mine...

    Now I'm worried!!
    I have a 3.2 V6 quattro with DSG box, on an 06 plate. Sold to me as an S-Line. S-Line badges etc etc everywhere.
    Vehicle data inside service book, 1st code is E4J, which is S-Line.
    Log book says 'Sport'
    Does mine have S-Line suspension?

    Hey mate, I rang Audi a few days ago and they confirmed mine was an S-line. If you phone your local dealer they will tell you. They'll ask if you purchased the car from there, if you say no they'll still be able to tell you :happy:
