Difference between the 2.0tsi (ST) FR and xcellence

Dec 23, 2021
Hi all
Im looking at buying a 18/19 reg leon st with the 2.0tsi dsg.
There is one very local to me which is a 19reg FR (not sport) 22, 000 m £16,500
Then there is another in Blackpool ( miles away) 19 reg xcellence 32000 £17,100

I can see lots of posts on the difference between the FR sport and xcellence but cant find the difference between the FR
can anyone help me on this?

Thanks Guys
Am I correct in thinking the only difference between the FR and FR sport is the wheel size and adjustable driving modes?

Forum member @admac21 gives a useful summary of the extra kit the FR Sport gets over the FR in post #10 of the discussion thread at the link below;

God its so complicated.
I am now getting more into the detailed spec ( something most of the sales people seem unable to do!)
Realistically the things I want/ need are a reversing camera ( ideally one that changes with the steering wheel)
Things I really want but are not a deal breaker are: ACC heated leather seats/steering wheel, digital dash
Am I correct in thinking that the xcellence lux has all those as standard?
If not and I cant find one with ACC hopefully the others things are fitted on the cheaper xcellence?

Could be wrong, but I don't think any trim level had a heated steering wheel, even those fitted with the Winter Pack.
