Audi used the Chicago Auto Show to announce the 2008 A4 Special Edition, which features additional content for no cost.

The new 2009 Audi A4 is still several months away from being parked in American driveways, so the company has announced a last hurrah for the outgoing model. Audi used the Chicago Auto Show to introduce the 2008 A4 Special Edition which offers additional content to 2.0 TSFI equipped vehicles.

Exterior changes include 17-inch wheels that feature a nine Y-spoke design, which compliment the newly standard S Line exterior. Interior features for Quattro equipped models now include no cost leather trimmed heated front seats and metallic paint, resulting in a savings of $1,155. While front wheel drive models see a $405 value improvement. Both versions will come with SIRUS Satellite Radio and a one year subscription.  2008 A4 Special Editions will be offered in both sedan and avant body styles, when they begin arriving at US dealerships in March.
