    I swapped from an A4 Avant S Line to my Sportback S Line and really miss the auto lights/wipers and three zone climate control which are "extras" on the 4 cylinder Sportback models (petrol and diesel).

    What about heated seats?

    Afraid not, 3 zone is only standard on 6 cylinder models, £450 option on 4 cylinder petrol & diesels

    While I uderstand (I think) the difference between 2 and 3 zone, are there any visual differences. I'm looking at a used one on the net and the dealer only knows that it's got 'climate control'. Very helpful!! :)

    Bog standard climate contol on the A5 is single zone with the temperature controller on the dash regulating the temperature for the whole car. The control panel has just one centre rotary control for temperature selection with a visual display coming up on the MMI. After a few seconds this display disappears and you are left with a digital readout at the bottom of the MMI showing your selected temperature.

    3 zone has a contol panel with 2 rotary selectors with a digital readout next to each one. This allows the passenger to have a different temperature set for his/her zone. The rear passengers have another selector to control the temperature in the rear via the 2 vents, thus you have a 3 zone system. Page 46 of the document below has a picture of the 3 zone control panel.

    Thanks. I checked and it is 3 zone. I've decided to chop in my A3 and buy it. Silver (seems to be the only colour around) Sportback SE. I'm afraid I've realised I'm too old for the S Line suspension.

    nice spec

    just my two pence worth but if I were you I wouldn't bother with the supaguard paint protection and would invest the money saved in getting a professional detailer to protect the car.
    It was about £400 (ish) to have it done when I bought my car but the info I got of here put me off having it done.

    Do a search on here for supa guard and check out the detailing section

    But enjoy the new car!
