I have searched and can't seem to find a decent comparison image of the two (or two images). Is anyone able to post a pic showing both bumpers so its easy to get a decent comparison?

Don't worry about what they look like. If your choosing, You want the s-line bumper. period. It looks 9238578934 times better than the stock A5 bumper:p

Whealey, I'm betting I know why you're asking the question - especially after seeing your car on Saturday. ;) :D

I'll let Whealey answer that - if he wants to. :)

Suffice to say that he's asking the S-Line bumper question for a good reason and that he wouldn't let me take close up photo's of his car's front end. ;)

Just a little scrape - taking it in on the 14th for a new bumper and a bit of touch up - should be good as new!

Ouch......

Are you getting the S-Line then ???

nah, just going for the standard replacement. as its the front bumper, the sline wouldn't make it look a great deal different. the only reason id pick sline is if it was the back

Didn't even bother looking to be honest, the thought didnt cross my mind. If I had thought about it then I would have compared prices but I guess I just forgot. Doesn't matter too much anyway, going to have it back to normal which is what i care about :)

Id love to see your car with the s line front bumper. Its basically the s5 bumper minus the alumium insert in the middle. With your 20" rims it would make it look even more aggressive. Just a thought.

Although you mention you like the s line rear bumper, can you not just removed the plastic at the bottom and intall the rear diffuser? I have seen the sline bumper converted to the s5 by the same process.

No, the standard bumper cover on the A5 differs slightly from the bumper cover on the S-line and S5. (BTW, the rear bumper cover on the S-line and S5 are the same.) In order to fit either the S-line rear diffuser or the S5 diffuser to a non S-line A5, you have to replace the entire bumper cover.

sounds expensive. I do love that diffuser though. The biggest difference to me on the s line was the front bumper and side rocker panels that make the car look more agresive. Almost like the S5. Almost.
