If you didn't do it it looks like the former owner did. I have the sport saloon, but it doesn't come with that front or door blades.

BONUS, cheers, according to the previous owner the car was an ex demostrater for crewe audi, so that could explain some of the extra spec

You need to be careful what you refer to as S-Line. I'm 99% sure (lostbok? ..... Bub?....) that true S-Lines are all 190 1.8T's and have the badges front and rear, and also in the rear doors - and the uber expensive door shut kickplates.

However the later model Sport's (late 03 on) came with the S-Line 'style' front and rear lower bumper and door blades.

Any S-Line equipped 1.9 or 2.5 etc is just that, an "S-Line style Sport" - but it's not a true S-Line.

I have been told there is no S-Line in the B6 per se - but that the SPORT model is sometimes referred to as S-Line

apparently its the same thing. If your car has door moulding then you are already S-Line.

Correct me if I am wrong.

S Line was only offically offered for the 1.8T run out model (190BHP). Cosmetically apart from the bumpers and door blades, it had RS6 style 18" alloys. and some interior changes including door sill plates embossed 'S Line' and a perforated leather steering wheel with 'S Line' badge and perforated leather gear knob.

The B6 Sport models that came out in 2004 where offered with the quattro GmbH kit as a no cost option which consisted of front and rear bumper and door blades akin to the 'S Line'. We all just refer to it as S Line kit as it's effectively the same thing, the diesel's just have hidden exhausts. :blahblah1:

So if your car is a 2004 model the body kit will be factory fitted if it's prior to this time it could have been retrofitted. What year is your car Scott B?

You're wrong I'm afraid. :(

The sell out B6 models before the S-Line became common place in the B7 range were badged as S-Lines - they all came with the 1.8T 190 engine, the front and rear bumpers, plus S-Line badges as I said, and also S-Line kick plates. If any other model than a 190 has an S-Line badge then it's a retrofit not a genuine one.

Well said Marc :applaus:

All above is 100% true they made a run for 1 year only in 2004 all model's are 190bhp only. After 2004 Audi stuck the s-line badge on almost everything that rolled out of the factory .

good stuff - that should clear up a few things..

not sure whoz car it is but its probably one of the best B6's Ive seen and its blue so I just had to keep a picture of it! then it magically became my avatar!

theres a chap selling side skirts on ebay but he is certain they wont fit the S Line model.. something to do with the door moulding on the sport / s line. Is this true?

Scott if your's is a 2004 Sport then thats why it would have come fitted with the gmbh (S-Line style) front and rear valance.

theres a chap selling side skirts on ebay but he is certain they wont fit the S Line model.. something to do with the door moulding on the sport / s line. Is this true?

Its quite probably yes, door blades and side skirts aren't always compatible.

saves me typing.... thanks, James :) For B6's that's 100% correct.

lots of late model genuine OEM Sport models that have the S-line look save a few badges and metal embossed kick-plates...

Ha I wouldn't get paranoid! 05 B6's are rare but they are about, as are 54 plate B7's.

Haha I'd not worry, as long as you're not trying to sell it as an 'S-Line' then it doesn't matter, and the badges do finish them off quite nicely often.

Yes 25mm lower. I have a question to those who have added the s-line kit's or badges to there car's, why not just buy the real deal as they are at an affordable price range now..
