    Hi there, I have just ordered my first Audi - a 2.0 TDI 150 S Line Sportback.
    Very excited but realise I have a long wait!

    Just wondering, I haven't ordered the load through option, does that mean the kids won't have a rear armrest and cup holders?

    Yep I think that will be the case - just like the 8P I imagine.

    Doh, may have to tweak a few options to get that included...... it quotes cup holders in the rear by the side of the seat, are these usable?

    So without ordering the load through option, there will be no armrest or cup holders in the rear. Strange...

    I may have to remove Hill Hold and the Reversible Load Mat to keep the kids happy!!

    I know a lot of people speak highly of Hill Hold, but remember it will hold you on a hill for a few seconds anyway without having it.

    I think i can live without those 2 options for the happiness of my children and somewhere to store their drinks.

    Crazy after spending ages specifying the car i still missed something!

    Has anybody got any images of the internal rear of an S Line SB with and without the load through?

    Just spent an age looking through the pictures thread at the top of page. Question... the door bins, or the nets on the back of the seats could these house drinks bottles? Also what is in the tray that seems to pull out of the middle rear seat?

    I have gone for Brillant Black, with Black Styling Package and Black Roof Rails. Are the roof rails painted black? are they likely to get scratched with use?

    Thanks

    I think the space under the middle seat (I think the flap at the front folds down) has a fluorescent jacket in it, which is a legal requirement to carry on the continent

    Nope, I thought if I'm going to spend all this money on a new car, I'm going to get exactly what I want! In for a penny, in for a pound and all that...

    No, I specifically didn't want full leather - I don't like it. Too hot in the summer, too cold in the winter.

    I agree! If you have children then its good for an easy clean up but otherwise I'm not sold. My current car has leather and heated seats, a must during the winter, but so hot left in the sun.

    Also you see so much saggy leather on second hand cars. Did think about alcantara though?

    Went for Alcantara and leather side bolsters on mine. Best combination as cloth just looks cheap on such a nice/expensive car.

    I'm in the same boat... Had to get the load thro to get the cup holders for the kids. I hadn't realised and had the jig the options to get it under the company limit I was allowed to spend.
