Sport seats were a separate option from the "sport package" so this is not tell-tale, but I'd be
those who ordered the seats ordered the rest of the package too. So having sport seats in non-
sport package car would be rare. It was common however to have the sport steering wheel and not
have the sport package.
The sport package consisted of: Audi Sport steering wheel, sport springs/shocks, 16x7 wheels
(unless you had the Celebration package, which got 17" wheels.), and high performance tires (in
place of the touring type rubber.)
The Audi Sport steering wheel could be had as a standalone option.
The sport seats were a standalone option. On the 2.8, they were power leather. On the 1.8T, they
only came in manual cloth.
The little red flag on the 1.8T logo denotes the 170hp engine, and has nothing to do with sport or
celebration packages. All 01 A4s got this engine regardless of package.
