    It is not until you park up next to a different model you really notice the differences

    roof rails, different bumpers, exhaust, wheels and stance. Just looked very plain compared to the s line IMO

    its the little differences that make it.

    you can't really count roof rails as they're an option on all models, but yea, the less sporty models are plain as fak IMO. They both Aruba Blue?

    nice wheel BTW.

    Looks like an SE to me too, the Sport ride height isn't too bad, certinaly not noticeablely "high" like, just a regular ride height that looks ok. My Sport rides more like the S-line in the photo!

    The "SE" car or whatever it is is a quattro 170, maybe it's got rough road spec springs on it!

    It's actually a 140bhp Quattro Sport which is a rare model....

    There aren't that many differences between the Sport and S-Line really.

    bar the wheels mine is standard.

    just posted as both same colour and was surprised having never parked next to another of the subtle differences between the models.

    dont like the thread, don't post. Simple

    Interesting, it may just be the photo but that is riding pretty high, definitely looks higher than my Sport anyway!


    For me the spoiler, whilst small makes a massive difference, the rear looks bare without it.

    'Sport' looks way too high,

    I like the spoiler on the sline, not so keen on the dent in the tailgate though :p #pdrtechneeded

    I have been training in PDR and just seem to notice dents now!

    How much you being charged to remove the little bugger?

    It's nice easy access just there once the trim removed inside, I had 3 in mine in the same place
