Default Visual way to tell if S3 Prestige has the "Advanced Tech Pack" or adaptive dampers?

Hey all,

Looking into a few used 2015-2016 S3 Prestige trim level and was wondering if there's a way to tell if the car has the Advanced Technology package or adaptive dampers from pictures? IE is there a button or other visual cue that would tell me?

I don't need to have either - but since I live in an area where I might end up traveling an hour or more to view a vehicle I'd like to narrow the criteria and know how good/bad of a deal a vehicle is (options-wise) before I commit to the time to go visit

All help is appreciated!`

Can't speak for 2015 but I have a copy of the 2016 MY brochure (others may know if 2015 features were the same)

All Prestige models have the Tech Package - which is basically NAV as the virtual cockpit doesn't show up until MY 2017. So if it has NAV, it has the Tech Package (but it could be a P+ as I know of no way to tell them apart if it has NAV, other than the Monroney sticker or possibly using a VIN decoder).

Magnetic Ride is included in the "Black Optics Package" - black grille and window trim, body colored mirrors & 5V spoke design titanium wheels (same wheels as the 2018 BO Pkg on the Audi website) - so BO equals Mag Ride (Prestige or P+)

Mag Ride is also offered in the "19" Performance Pkg" (Prestige or P+) so if no black optics, look for the 19" 5 spoke star design wheels (same wheels as the 2018 S Sport Pkg) - also the wheels on my avatar.

Happy Hunting!
