[A4] Celebration=Sport

My son has a 01.5 B5 1.8t with no sport seats or sport suspension but from what I gather it is a Celebration issue. The giveaway I am told is the control unit (garage doors and such) located above the rear view mirror.
The sport suspension would have 16" wheels rather than 15" 8 spokers. The earlier models had the 7 spoke 16's and the later ones had the 10 spoke RS4 type.  The shocks, if original, are red, the front sway bar is large and the car will sit lower than a non sport with 15" wheels. 
The 2.8's with sport also came with the sport seats (leather). Some 1.8t's have cloth sport seats in them.
I do have a 99.5 Avant 2.8 30V with the sport package and when parked next to my son's one can tell the difference right away plus it handles much better.

I am speaking or B5 cars 98-01

Hope this helps a little.
