2008 Audi A4 2.0T quattro

Audi continued its habit of strangely inconsistent names into the B7. In 2008 the S-Line package was a $2,000 premium. It gave you leather upholstery, brushed aluminum dashboard trim, sport suspension, and 18″ wheels – so, all in all a pretty good value. Today’s car appears to have been ordered with that package, but wasn’t. That’s because also in 2008, all A4s were outwardly given the S-Line upgrades and badges as standard equipment, and the standard trim on the A4 was aluminum (though, not brushed). Confused? Yeah, it makes a real S-Line car hard to spot. However, this one was also turned up by STaSIS; the actual details aren’t clear, but it appears to have the Touring Package – including suspension, exhaust, and 19″ wheels. It makes for a pretty tidy package, but though this particular A4 has just 53,000 miles there’s also one really big drawback:

The B7 still looks pretty fresh, though it’s now 15 years old (18 for the oldest!), and the lowered ride height and STaSIS wheels really make it more purposeful. I’m not sure that the car has the full Touring Package; that would also include engine tuning (most likely) and brake upgrades, so a bit more digging would be helpful – but it’s clear someone spent some money. Another clue that the car doesn’t have the S-Line package is that the steering wheel is wrong (should be three-spoke) as are the door sills, which should have S-Line logos. Regardless, it’s also odd that someone did all this work to a Tiptronic car. Despite that, this is a lower-mile A4 with some nice mods for a fairly low price. It’s not the cheapest B7 by a long shot, but it appears to be in great shape and has far less than average mileage. If you don’t mind the car shifting itself, this could be a neat commuter.

    Thank you Carter for using the same words I used many times, probably to the tune of plenty of eye-rolling to those who heard me … “real S-Line”! We had a 2006 A4 S-Line, a real one, and my sister then bought a 2008 “S-Line”… Not the same car. Different wheels, brakes, suspension, stance, steering wheel and other items… it was truly a plain Jane A4 with the lower sill and a badge.

    This particular car at least has better wheels and the stance is better than the typical 2008 “S-Line”. These wheels look similar to the factory Titanium Package wheels.

    Audi had something pretty cool going with the S-Line product. At the time we bought our 2006 we couldn’t really stretch to the S4 but the S-Line had all the good looking bits from the S4 body and wheels and stance etc.. almost like a Turbo Look Porsche.

    When they started doing all final year cars (as I recall they did the same thing for the final B8 year as well) making them all S-Lines that weren’t really S-Lines they did nothing but dilute the sub brand they had created. I have a jacket that is S-Line branded that I bought at the Factory in Ingolstadt. , S-Line was on the Champion LMP R8s. It was a real sub brand slotting between the A and S cars. Then they screwed it up!
