    Thank You

    my 2010 S3 also says "2.0 TFSI Quattro Sportback Black Eddition" I wouldn't worry about it.
    Checking it on our works system it list the same but adds the correct 195 KW and 265 BHP so happy.
    if you Message me your reg I'll check it for you if your worried.

    When i purchased my insurance the certificate stated A3 2.0TFSI S-line Quattro, so i called up and they stated its just what they list them as for some strange reason?

    What was the issue? Incorrectly registered car against the registration number I assume? Common issue that but well done for spotting it, it could have caused a major headache come claim time.

    Well, I am contemplating buying a 2008 S3, and I dial in the car details and the insurance companies call it an A3 in their quotations. Not sure whats going on, but I am 51, full NCB, no convictions, cars garaged/parked at workplace secure car park, Social Domestic & commuting...and its coming in under £300 !! Is this right ???? If so its cheaper to insure than my current BMw 118d ..thats the S3 265HP version !

    Yea my insurance dropped from £700 to £440 when I bought the s3 I put it down to turning 25 and the equal rights thing came in between men and woman,
    And also put it down to s3 being an un undercover fast car lol
