Interior upgrades include piano black finishes, iPod connection and either Audi's parking system 'Plus' with on-screen graphics for the A4 saloon or tinted windows in the Avant variants.

Audi S line cars have so far, not been known for their ride quality, so what do Audi do?

Swap the 18 inch wheels for 19s.

I think that tells us everything we need to know about these cars!

All they need to do is add a bit of concrete into the front suspension to soften it up a little...

The 'new' Technik versions have been available since May when the 2011 model year came into effect.

These models will look great, the A3 black edition which came out in 2008/2009 was a very good all round package and this looks set to continue with these great models.

Back in 2000, I paid almost £1800 to have the leather option in my A4.

Now if I'm reading this correctly, ten years later Audi are asking £915 for a pack which includes leather, DVD Sat Nav, an Ipod connection and parking sensors. And all I can see from the comments above are complaints! Perhaps I'm the only one who thinks £915 for that lot sounds like a good deal.

I don't think it's compulsory to buy an Audi Black Edition, is it? Also, these are popular S line options that go to create a special edition for a limited time at a much lower cost than if you were specifying them onto the S line yourself.

These special editions also make great value leasing and company cars as they lose comparatively little money for those who want an Audi.

No you need to provide your own JCB style suspended seat .

I have spent the last 2 weeks 'car sitting' a 1.8TFSi petrol on 18's and the ride quality is great. Looks nice too and plenty of poke from what I think is the base model.

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
