I've noticed some S3s have a chrome lip and some have the same front bumper as the s-line. Am I seeing things or?
The differentiation of the S3 is frankly pathetic. At least on the 8P it looked fairly different to the standard models, with the 8V about the only major differences are the badges and exhausts.
That's why we like them, if we wanted something to shout about and look OTT you would buy a fast Ford. I like having the exec look, it means 95% of people wouldn't have a clue, and keeps it under the radar of skanks robbing your house to get to them.......
Agreed, you'd blink and miss with the differences between the s-line and an S3. Just far too understated in my opinion, even a better rear spoiler option would help...That's the thing - it doesn't even have the go faster bodykit this time!
For the extra they charge for an S3 I'd expect it to at least have significantly different front and rear bumpers so it looks visually different and distinctive.
