    Blimey Cemerson, that was quick!

    Can't see any suspension spec except for:

    1JA = Rear shock absorption, basic design 1
    G02 = Front shock absorption

    So probably basic means standard SE.

    I'll check mine later.

    Looking at your photos there is no way yours basic SE suspension, there where photos a while back in the photo thread of a black and white a3 next to each other and the difference is noticeable to the one with SE suspension, it looks more jacked up in comparison.

    I have Sport (on 18" wheels); I would say it's on the firm side of comfortable, but not too firm. Happy with my choice.

    I have to agree with tim. I enjoy the ride of mine, firm yes but not uncomfortable at all. 👍👍👍

    Yes I agree too! S-Line on Sports suspention with 18" wheels perfect ;) I think any harder and it would start to be uncomfortable.

    I also agree with. Above 18" wheels with sport suspension is firm, bit sporty but still comfortable and very stable and grippy even on uneven roads.
    Best combination in my opinion and ordered because of it.
    I'msure you will love it :thumbsup:

    Just to prove it's all down to personal taste, I really wanted to like the sports suspension with 18" wheels in my test drive but it was just too firm for me so I deleted it, as recommended by the vast majority of independent reviewers (who were probably all old, fat and middle aged, but then so am I).
