    Unhappy Thinking about selling :(

    Guys / Gals,

    Recently moved in with my gf and now dont really have need for my pride & joy

    Think now is the time to sell & get something a bit more practical

    Looking for a rough estimate on price - hoping for around £5k but you guys should be able to let me knoe if its a realistic valuation

    Audi A3 3.2 V6 (Black) 3dr
    2003 (53)
    66k miles
    12mth TAX
    6mth MOT
    last serviced in AUG 2011
    Red Leather Interior
    18" BBS CH Alloys
    BOSE Stereo
    Possible private plate
    Has had the ECU upgrade to rectify the dreaded hesitation @ 2K RPM (http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/new-a3-...-~-2k-rpm.html)
    New Battery JAN 2012
    Good condition throughout







    Cheers

    Ryan

    The interior might not be to everyone's taste, but reasonably low mileage and nice spec. I paid 6k for my 54 plate with slightly less mileage and full history about 6 months ago. I reckon 5 is perfectly reasonable.

    3.2V6 = lots of fun,
    G/F = expensive to run. Guilty conscience. de values with age. novelty wears off, always expensive to trade in for a new model, sure to want bloody kids next (think Citroen Picaso) . Marriage and misery then Death.
    Pull yourself together man, keep the love of your life and don't get side tracked by this imposter.

    Unfortunately its nothing to do with the missus, its more my idea!!!

    The fact of the matter is now we live together I no longer have need for her she just sits there from week to week and rather than just let it depreciate in value in fornt of my eyes I may as well sell up whilst I can get some decent money for it. Sad but true.

    How about stripping all the interior out and flea baying it, and make it into a track day weapon? You'd make money from the parts, and still get to keep the car. A few mods would turn it into a tasty 1/4 mile car. What would you do with the 5k, apart from waste it?

    I wouldnt have anywhere to store a track day car and certainly dont have the money to sort it out. Will be putting the proceeds towards the new motor.

    Shame; seel the rims off seperate if you can as you'll get more for them than on the car. You can pick up some used OEM ones fairly cheap these days

    I see mate but you'll get more money if you take them off.

    What tyres are on them and are there any curb marks?

    There are a few minor kerb marks on 2 alloys and they have Michelin Pilto Exitos (I think)

    If you do decide to split them, I could offer you the 4 s line alloys off of mine, with matching Bridgestone potenzas + cash and I'd come to you and swap them over. They're too good to just let them go with the car, make some money off of them.

    We are getting a car between us. I cant see the need for the 3.2 to just sit there when it is more expensive on TAX, insurance etc....

    Deinitely no bidding war mate, I've got a price I can afford and he might not like it. And he might like different oem wheels or not sell them at all. I'll pm some pictures and an offer at the weekend and you can see what you think.
