    I am sure the items you list were all optional. The S3 does have a good spec as standard though...

    I believe they all had the armrest and electric mirrors(although folding was an option). As for cd changer, its 2011 man, get with the times!!

    The options lists have changed over time, for instance early 8P2 cars didn't come with flat bottomed steering wheel, it was a £250 pay option. From 08 it became standard equipment (as well it should).

    Standard options include (from memory):

    Electric mirrors (non folding)
    Heated front seats
    Leather interior
    Flat bottomed steering wheel
    Armrest
    Driver DIS with lap timer
    Quattro (Haldex)
    S3 Specific Suspension / Wheels / Brakes / Bumpers / Grille / Badging / Door sills / instrument cluster

    I know after the facelift the options changed again (std ones), and on BE includes Nav / Bluetooth / Bose / Tints / Black Grille / Anthracite rims, but not sure what non BE covers - check Audi UK site.

    Surely a current brochure will answer all your questions.
    I bought a used 2010 and was fussy on colour ( Black Pearl only ), 'S' spec. , armrest essential, DSG essential, with half leather VERY comfortable heated seats and Bose. Would have liked folding mirrors as forever having to manualy fold them for the narrow lanes or conjested streets. Can live without auto-dimming. puddle lights and assorted gimmicks unless happen to have been on car chosen.

    My 8P2 2007 57 plate has a big stupid round steering wheel instead of the flat bottom wheel. I will change this before long. It has electric mirrors (folding was an option) non Bose stereo etc. It has the interior light pack and the full leather recaro buckets. I don't really understand why Carlisle Audi who ordered the car new as a demo decided to order the very expensive buckets but not some of the cheaper options like the flat bottom wheel?!

    When I was looking I found that most seemed to have full leather, bose and a lot actually had nav in them so keep an eye on Autotrader and I am sure you will get the spec you want.

    Options on 8p2 and 8p3 are broadly the same, but nav and MFFBSW was not standard on early 8P2's.

    armrest
    bose
    full leather seats (buckets would be a bonus)
    flat bottom steering wheel
    cd changer
    sat nav (not to important as might put my double din out of my current car in)
    electric fold in mirrors ( again wont put me off buying a car)
    they are the main must haves i would like these aswell put can aswell fit them myself

    interior light pack
    black optic grill
