    Lower as in suspension? (Rather than specification or "kudos" :) )

    I think they're both the same tbh but I'm guessing.

    Not sure but if one is lower than the other I would imagine it would be the S3.

    S3 is noticably lower at the rear. At the front only a fraction. Don't know the figures, was in audi osnabruck and there was an S3 and S-line side by side. Used the tried and tested finger measuring device.

    P.S. There was an R8 there too :hubbahubba: I've started saving.

    The A3 S-Line is 15mm lower than the sport and the S3 is 10mm lower than an S-Line I believe.

    (She argued that our S-Line was lower than the S3)

    The S3 is more than 5mm lower than an s-line at the rear I'm sure! When I first drove one last year I could spot it a mile away!

    Well, according to the Audi website, the standard A3 stands 1421mm, whereas the S3 stands 1399, so that makes it 22mm "lower". No details on the S-line and no mention of 25mm in PDF... Tape measure?!?
