    9.5-10K's a good estimate.

    I'd turn up at your door with 10K in cash FULLY expecting to walk away with only having paid 9K.

    Did you read what Chris said?

    Modification devalue the car, as people will assume its been thrased.

    Personally, I'd buy a car that I knew had been tracked, and tracked hard, but I wouldnt touch a car If I thought a traffic light grand prix merchant had owned it.

    The Audi service history is worth a few quid tho.


    Never ever expect to get back what you have put in unless you got the car at a bargain price.

    Have you had the car on VAG-COM? First thing I do when looking at a car is turn up, plug VAG-COM in, tells me if I need to continue looking....

    If there's 10k on the table, grab it and throw the keys at him. It is a very good price.

    Have to agree.. I mean I brought a W-Reg TT off family 2 years ago, ok I got it cheap at 10k.. Mint Car with low mileage.. 2 years later I sold it for the same price.. Take the money and go.. My S3 is a 51 plate with roughly the same mileage.. If someone offered me 10k for it I`d snap there hand off..

    id say put it up for 10 and you may get a sale, 9.5 should get you a sale, 9 if you want rid.

    I paid &#163;10.7k for my 2002 51 plate s3 with 48k a couple of months ago

    I'd agree with the 9k figure to a certain extent. I was thinking of selling mine a bit back, a year older but with less miles, full audi service history, cam belt, water pump and tensioners, All the options, blah, blah, blah. I was going to put it up at 9.5k but decided I would have taken 8.5k.
    IMHO if you sell it to a friend for 10k don't expect him to be a friend for long!
