Hi All -

I'm a new forum member here - excellent info on the site, and good to see such good advice from owners of all models in the range (I'm a Mk II TT owner, and the TT Forum seems to be full of 'Mines better than yours' threads!! Quite boring!).

Anyway, I fancy a change - the TT's a great car, but a bit too raw for long distance commuting, and the A5 3.0 TDi I'm after offers better performance anyway.

Only problem is that I really want an S Line. I've searched the forum and wandered if there had been any know updates on UK future availability? I'd hate to buy a £35K car (Sport) only to see an S Line arrive a few months later.

Is there any known news on S Line coming to UK?

Cheers
Mark

My Local audi dealer told me that the S-line will be out no time soon. Basically because the "normal" A5 is selling VERY well throughout the UK, so it wouldnt make sense for them to bring the s-line out just yet.

I guess they're waiting on sales dying down a bit, and then they'll release the s-line, in hope that they'll entice the "normal" A5 owners to upgrading.

I've not heard about the status of UK sline, originally i wanted it aswell. After a while i've actually come to prefer the UK sport to the sline. The sline just looks like it has big plastic side skirts and thats about, it may have a different front bumper but it cant be much different.

You can always buy OEM sline parts through audi, quite a few have already done the side skirts. I think i recall them only being about £80 exc paint/fitting.
