    I'm not too sure about the full standard spec list for my car (2003 225 S3) as it varies somewhat from my friend's (2001 210 S3).

    I have the following and think they're all options.
    Could anyone confirm that they are options, or are some of these standard?:

    1) Auto dimming rear view mirror
    2) Electrically adjustable lumbar support
    3) Third 3 point seatbelt and third headrest in rear
    4) Symphony 2 stereo (6 disc)
    5) Bose upgrade (or downgrade as some see it!)
    6) Rear parking sensors
    7) Leather front armrest

    Yep, I think they're all options apart from lumbar support. Incidentally, I never saw the point in the third seatbelt and headrest in rear option. How often does anyone carry 3 passengers in the back - I would've thought it just restricts rear visibility for the most part [​IMG]

    Nope, it's not an import.
    I don't have any problems with imports. My brother has a Golf Tdi import which has slightly different features to the uk spec, but on the whole very simliar.

    i do at home, but know a few of them from memory as mine is very similar to yours but i never got the the rear view mirrow and 3rd seat belt/headrest but i got the sunroof which i think was an 1100 quid option.

    Bose was £500
    Leather arm rest £225
    Rear Parking was £3xx (not sure of the xx)
    Heated electric leather seats was £1000+

    Thanks for that, but surely that's the price list for an A3, not S3? Electric leather seats are standard on the S3, and surely there's no way it costs £1000 for heating elements. I'm sure the rest is probably the smae though.

    Wow, thanks Dunc.
    That means the previous owner of my car paid £1810.99 in extras. That's quite a bit really.
    Still, at least I didn't pay for them /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Ive got up holders but didnt pay for em /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    i guess the guy who originally bought mine lost loads when he sold it.

    Acoustic Parking 7X1 297.87
    Bose Sound System 8RY 425.53
    CD Changer 7A2 340.42
    Cruise Control 8T2 277.45
    Front Armrest - Cup Holders 6E6 125.10
    Heated Front Seats 4A3 302.13
    Luggage Net 6M2 62.98
    Polished Alloy Mirrors 6FC 204.25
    Radio - NEW Concert Upgrade 8UD 170.21
    Sideguard Airbag System 4X3 400.00
    Sunroof 3FE 681.70
    Pearl or Metallic Paint: 370.21

    theres my options £3657.85 or £4297.97 with VAT /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    didnt realise it was that much dam he must have lost about £11 grand in 26 months and only done 9000 miles, thats £1.22 a mile without petrol, insurance and servicing costs /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    all to my advantage though

    Mark

    p.s. just noticed i missed the RS4 alloys off but they're not Audi original but he still paid £800 quid for them

    p.p.s also missed the private plate he also bought, and sold with it on the car /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
