    Dude you didnt have it long. Why the sale? and maybe best to sell your car as standard?

    I have dangerous driving and payed the big insurance premium the first year but the thought of paying that kind of money again has made me consider selling up. I could take my car back to standard but if it does not sell i will be keeping my car at stage 2+ as it is great. I don't want the hassle of taking everything off then having to put it back on if it does not sell. I don't need to sell up just could think of better ways of spending 3k than giving it away to insurance companies.

    I told my gf I'm planning on buying a Ł1200 exhaust today. She put the phone down. Probably cause I also told her we were going to have to go on holiday in July rather than march 5 mins earlier

    I think you will struggle at that price. I'm not one for doom n gloom but I struggled at first with mine and mine was a fully loaded 6,500 mile 2010 car!!!

    I think you need to look at the price and maybe look at around 27-28k max.

    Agree with Dave (and his was a pretty special example!). I'm looking to chop mine in now i've got the bimmer and get a 4 year old S4 instead of the S3 for daisy duke (boot isn't big enough for her shopping trips), mine is 10k and about the same spec and standard, not going to get anywhere near Ł29k.

    A new one will be higher spec, get RNSe as standard etc and brand new for Ł31.5, and most will get a 5-11% discount off of that so pretty much what you're asking.

    I guess somebody may pay extra to have the mods?

    Yes I know it's gutting, but sell now before the 11 reg comes out! It annoyed the hell out of me but on a 2010 car you should be selling anywhere from 26.5k to 27995 max. Mine was fully spec'd and only really had 2 interested buyers in 3 months.

    Problem is new s3's come better equipped although your paying for it in the bigger price. I lost around 5k on mine in around 12 months!

    unfortunate but bang on, i think the level for these cars seems to be the classic 2 and half, 3 year mark..... which is why i wont lift my budget to accommodate a 59 plate S tronic S3 up for Ł25k at Norwich Audi, 58's are knocking on the door of sub 20k now..... from then on its looks like they lose approx 2k pa based on the pre faces and what they are going for now

    I too am thinking about selling the S3 as I need more doors. I've looked about and think I'll go for an S3 SB, but try and get a MY11 one.

    I've had buckets in the previous 2 S3's and would love them again, but no SB's with buckets kicking about. I may go for standard seats, but get S Tronic instead of manual. This could potentially be my 3rd S3! I'm almost as bad as DaveS3Turbo!

    Mine is a 2010 BE also, Sprint, buckets, rear sensors, auto lights wipers with 7.5k on the clock. Got offered Ł24.5k from a dealer as a p/x. Not sure I could wait 3 months or so for a buyer if I found the right car, and so would also stand to lose a chunk. Seems to be par for the course though unless you've time on your hands, but I need the new car before March as I'll be chauffeuring the wee one to nursery. Looks like I'll be set to lose anything I made on the 13% discount I got on this one.

    Maybe a little better after a year or so, but they made a BIG point of telling me that I'm screwing myself if wanting to change it now. Smug? Just a little bit. I've no choice really, baby seat and buckets in a 3 door doesn't really work despite what some say. Unless of course you take the baby out through the boot.

    Phil, I'll need to leave the buckets in the car on this one I'm afraid. I need everything I can get bro!

    You will easily get around Ł27K. But going higher reduces your saleability unless its unique. I struggled, bad time of year and that. I needed the Porsche asap though so had to reduce to sell as mine was really saleable at around Ł28.5K

    I hear you and to be honest, Ł27k is where I thought the limit would be. One to ponder. Cheers Dave.

    One of thing, concentrate on Pistonheads. The ratio compared to autotrader was silly. I probably had 90% off pistonheads. I would put yours on at Ł26,995.

    I'll have it..alright!!, you just won't have my money

    Just this minute waved goodbye to mine now searching the classifieds vigorously for the replacement - must stand firm!! S tronic or nothing.... 22k budget if anyone spots anything, figure the majority of the depreciation hit will have been taken, although at that im gonna be looking at 58/09
