Default Sports Package

I'm about to buy an A6.

What are the benefits/drawbacks of the Sports Package? Ride, handling, etc.
Specifically, is the ride much harsher?

Also -- It seems there is a 19" Sports Package and also a 20" one. Other than tire size, is there any difference?

THANKS for any help on this .. I want to get the right car.

For clarification, are you asking about Sport package or S-line? FWIW, there are Sports seats offered in the A6, but the S-line has slightly lower springs, a slightly different front grill, obviously S-line badges and steering wheel, and bottom of the door panel has "S-Line" on it.

Also, what year and model of A6 are you looking at buying?

BTW, the tires will be the only difference if both vehicles are s-line vehicles (i.e. 19" vs 20").

I plan to buy an A6 with the Sport Package -- not an S6.

Up and downsides of the Sport Package?

TIA

I didn't mention anything about an S6, so not sure what you are talking about. I asked for clarification, if you are referring to 'sport seats' or are you referring to the 'S-line' package. The S6 is a different model (engine, seats, etc...).

Sorry for all the confusion -- I'm buying an A6 with the Sports Package. I don't know if that includes different than normal seats. My concern is about the suspension and changes to ride quality.

What is the 'S-line'? I haven't even heard of it .... So I assumed you were referring to S6 when you said S-line. Again, sorry for the confusion.

Before we get too in-depth. What year and model of A6 are you looking at buying?

Then you are in the wrong forum. You want to be in the C7 forum. This is the C6 forum.

By the way, I have a 2015 A6 TDI on order. I went with the 19 inch sports package. The only difference between the 19 and 20 inch is the tire size. I went with the 19 inch because of concerns on ride quality with the 20 inch tires. If you ask your question on the C7 forum you will get a lot of feedback from people with experience with the set up.
