    Just a couple of questions that Google hasn't been able to help with while I shop around for my S1.

    I can't see anything in pictures but what's the difference between an 'S1' and 'S1 Sportback'?
    What's the cost to retrofit the flat-bottomed steering wheel?

    Thanks

    The front doors are bigger on the 3 door version - this was a consideration when I bought the wife's A1 as she doesn't need to carry passengers in the back.

    I bought the three door for the same reason, it also looks better imho ;)

    Retro-fitting a flat bottom steering wheel is a game of patience, you need to find someone selling one and if it doesn't include the airbag (they're different to the normal wheel) you need to get one of these as well. If you can find one on an S1 do that :)

    Always preferred 3 doors but went with the sportback in the end... love it! Managed to find one with the flat bottomed steering wheel as well. Thanks for your help!

    Now to plan the mods...
