    those are the main ones, also differences to some suspension componets i believe, and other chssis bits and bobs.

    i think also facelifts had sports seats, and some dash diferences

    there is a link somewhere showing a picture of exactly what was different , there is actually quite alot but most are under body so cant be seen

    I'm a long way away but mine is up for grabs.... !

    There are about 130 differences all in all, I had a link somewhere but can't find it. Biggest difference inside is the dash centre console & swiches, outside the door handles, bootlid number plate inset and the headlights.
    If you can find one i'd definitely go for one for the money, but my personal pref as that's what I have. Don't take offence anyone else.

    Not being biast but i prefer the pre face light handles new style are too curvy for me. But the face lifts although quite subtle all add up to make a big difference they take years off the car compared to a pre-face lift.

    Are we on about the Quat Sport then, 17's and white clocks?

    951 - No, it isn't silver or an Avant, i'm after an Avant too, was going to buy one in the first place as I planned to keep mine and buy a bike, but the bike came along as a cheap project and I want an Avant for the summer camping and weekends away with mates and that.
    Bit of a bugger really as I should have thought about it, plus I bet I won't find one as good as I already have now and will end up doing loads of little bits all over again. The joys of being a petrolhead (fiddler)

    my apologies i stand corrected when you posted the question i did do a quick scour round on ebay and saw 1.9 tdi without tip which was facelift, so im thinking the one you saw may have been an optional extra?

    £3495?! That would be the price of a 1.8T! Weird. Smells really fishy. Milage?

    it all depends what sort of mileage and how it was driven looked after/ serviced
    iv also heard S4s can be v.expensive to maintain...
