    The S3 has to go......

    All I seem to have read over the last few months is people having to sell their cars through expanding families etc and now its happened to me! (not so funny now)........ Anyway need to get something bigger and Im just about to put mine on the market.

    Its an immaculate August 2003 (03) 225 model with 19k on the clock and all the usual bits and was thinking of listing for around 18k (a far cry from the 22k I paid 14 months ago).

    Is that realistic?

    Re: The S3 has to go......

    IIRC the bible says that an oct02 (52) is worth 17,499 from a franchise dealer, and 14.5k trade in.

    I have just paid 18k for a reasonably loaded oct 02 s3 from a dealer, so there are people out there willing to pay the money for a mint one [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    adjust accordingly I guess

    P.S. Sorry to here she's gotta go... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    With a bit of modification the baby will fit in the glove box... leaving your boot and back seat for pushchairs, nappies, talcum powder and other such essentials.

    Ooh ! Baby sick on alcantra. Now there's a thought.
    On my second S3 now. Boy was born when I had my first S3.
    No need to sell it just because you think its too small.
    Don't get me wrong, it can be cramped sometimes, but these times are few and far between.
    Surely the pleasures outweigh the disadvantages ?

    Chris.

    Use a beach towel between the travel seat and leather/alcatara seats, to obviously prevent sick from connecting, and prevents marks aswell [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    lmao, kinda gone waaay OT.. he says he wants something bigger, not crapper... who says he's not after an RS6 [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    anyway, i can check the official figures now..

    august 03
    New - 25,075
    Retail - 18,825
    milage - 27k
    trade - 16825

    so your figures are not unrealistic at all, if anything is a bit underpriced. Plus you know that if you were to buy the same car from a dealer today, you would have to pay 18.5k - 21k.

    The only real problem with these cars is finding someone as passionate about them as we are, and willing to shell out that amount of cash on a second hand car - when a new f**d will cost half that amount...
