    Hi there,

    I just ordered a FL Sportback. I can see on 3-doors that there are cup holders at the passengers feets, not really possible for Sportback because of the doors.

    The Audi sales contact first told me that there is no cup holders for Sportback, also if purchasing the rear split seats 40-20-40. I then asked him yesterday (about 2 weeks later) if there was no way to get cup holders for the rear seats! He now says that I will get them with 40-20-40 split seats, mounted in the armrest.

    Can anyone confirm what is correct/wrong here?
    Pictures would be awesome :)

    I don't want to pay 650£ for only split seats and armrest.

    Yes, the 40-20-40 split option has a centre armrest that folds down from the middle seat that doubles up as a ski-through hatch. But the arm rest has two cup holders I think.

    I have the load through option & just took a pic for you with the cup holders (you press in and they slide out)

    What year is yours? Perhaps they did a upgrade here.

    Okay, I ordered a MY17 then. So they might have done some "design" changes if the image from Audi really is from an A3.

    Yep, I've seen the 'new' style in review videos on the A3. £650 is a hell of a lot to pay for cupholders though if you don't need the through-load capability...

    It is a lot of money for both cup holders and arm rest! I don't really care about the through-load capability.

    We put 150% tax on top of the car and extra equipment here in Denmark! We did have 180%, so at least it is getting better.

    An "S3 sportback 2,0 TFSI quattro 310 hp 6-gear Manuel" here is 74.200 £

    That is why had to go with a normal Sportback 1.4 TFSI.

    How can anyone ever afford one?
    Must be high wages there?

    No, our wages are not really higher. We just drive borring cars!
