    Bill Please waiter - Time to sell up i think

    Due to changing circumstances (having a GF 30miles away and wanting to spend lots of time together) I can’t afford to run the S3 anymore.

    So would you kind chaps give me an estimation of what my baby is worth.

    2001 Audi S3 Facelift
    210bhp AMK engine - Never chipped
    Black Leather
    ECS Porsche Boxter S Brake upgrade and 312mm rear upgrade
    Totally mint inside and out.
    No Bose or heated seats or arm rest sadly.

    Thanks

    Sam

    They are the wrong one for you Mark. S3/TT brakes have a different offset.

    Forgot to add it has 12months third party warranty at top level cover.

    Re: Bill Please waiter - Time to sell up i think

    no good asking here we all love the S3 and would probably over value it! I paid aboutŁ11.5k for a FSH 47k miler with all the toys, heated seats, Bose, MTM remap, Milltek, sachs in mint condition but no big brakes, sounds like you have a nice set there and I can confirm the S3 could do with improving in that department!

    Re: Bill Please waiter - Time to sell up i think

    65K miles All motorway though. Shown by the 20k service intervals.

    Would you guys pay extra for a car that has sorted brakes over a car that is standard?

    Hmmm... Most extra's tend not to increase the value of a second hand car, just make it more saleable.

    It may add afew ŁŁ to the price, but probably no where near what you would have paid for them.

    If there were 2 similar cars, one with the brakes and one without, I'd take yours for a slightly higher premium.

    Re: Bill Please waiter - Time to sell up i think

    Ebay take a percentage of the final sale fee, i think it's something like 6% but i might be wrong.

    the best place to check your price is parkers of glasses, some of them do an additional service for Ł3 ish where you can specify all the options etc and it will give you a more realistic idea of what to expect.

    I had a quick look on autotrader and most of the 2001 s3's seem to vary between 10 - 15k.

    There do seem to be quite a few for sale at the moment, it might be a daft qusetion but what colour is it as some of the rare cars such as merlin purple and noggy blue tend to get a bit more over others like goodwood green

    ok - just saw that its a noggy blue one - DOH!!

    I think jedi knight was selling his for around 14k and thats noggy blue so might be a good basis for your price.

    Re: Bill Please waiter - Time to sell up i think

    i based my price on autotrader prices... noggys seem to go for higher price than black or silver aswell... also full black leather seems to be more desireable than half with alcantara. the brakes wont add any value... you may aswell try to px them with someone who wants an upgrade and get a couple of hundred and their standard brakes.

    mine is on 51k and IMO is pretty mint. for your milage ... if it was mint then id say Ł12750-Ł13500.. just depends who is buying at the time.. how good your advert is and how good the pictures you take for the advert are.

    good luck

    If you can't afford a sixty mile round trip, best advice I can offer is to your girlfriend.

    Dump the guy he's broke.

    Best advice to you, dump the girl, in the long run the car will cost you a lot less. Especially when she give's you the sack when you had a couple of kids together.

    Believe me I've been there. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif[/img]
