    Hi all just a quick question how can I tell if an a4 is a sport or an se from pics in an ad. The reason I ask is my mates looking at one and hes sent me a link and in the pics its got the votex kit fitted like mine which I thought were only fitted on sport models but it has a four spoke steering wheel where as mine has a three which I thought was just on the sport models please educate me lol

    Four spoke wheel is the sign of an SE unless it's a multi-function one.

    Votex kit only comes as standard on Sports, but it's a common retrofit.

    if it's 2001 it would predate the gmbh (s-line) body kit even if it was a sport and wouldn't be colour coded either se or sport.

    it's got sports seats (adjustable knee support), 4 spoke wheel was a 'downgrade' choice if you wanted (it doesn't look multi function)

    votex kits weren't standard fit on any b6 but are Audi supplied / warranted if genuine - so it would only have come like that from the garage if they were showing / demoing.

    as it's been lowered it doesn't really matter if it's an se or a sport does it?

    As mentioned, thats a Votex kit rather than a GmbH one so I imagine it would be an SE.

    Note the poor fit on the front lower and the obvious colour tone difference on the kit, too.
