Most of the S-line items are cosmetic. The only performance-related items are 19" wheels and a slightly lower suspension. Some folks don't like 19" wheels due to the stiffer ride. Some folks don't like the non-magnetic suspension because of the slightly stiffer ride. I've driven both suspensions and in the normal mode my *** can't tell the difference but some folks swear by the mag ride. I have a non-mag model.
The two biggest items are the much better engine, AWD, and the warranties. I read the CarFax more carefully and the car still has about a year left on the original factory warranty which covers almost everything for free. Regarding the CPO, it adds another 2 years and up to 100K after the factory warranty expires. Check with your local service manager for details but almost everything is covered except wear items like brakes and each repair will cost you no more than $70.
Buying a local car will not "establish a relationship". The dealer's service manager does not care where you bought the car. He just wants you to get service there since service is the real money maker of any dealership.
Visit the service manager with the VIN of the car you are interested in. He will tell you the service history, remainder of any warranty, etc.
The most likely reason the FL car is less than KBB is because it is an off lease car. My present car is off lease and I bought it from an Audi dealer in CA for about $6K under KBB. Although I am an avid TT fan, the fact is that the Mk 2 TT was not a good selling car. Only about 10K have been sold in the US over the past 5 years COMBINED. IMO that is part of the appeal because the Z4 and SLK are everywhere. I think the FL car is more realistically priced and would have no qualms whatsoever buying a used TT from any Audi dealer. Don't forget the asking price is negotiable. I got $2K off the dealer's asking price.
