    8P2 to 8P3 conversion values?

    Just wondering if any of you who have done the whole conversion from either 8P1 or 8P2 to the most recent 8P3 front and rear ends have found the px value when selling?

    Is a dealer more likely to look at it and quote less as its not in its original spec, or do they take into account that its been updated and therefore is more desirable to people who can't afford a new A3?

    Most dealers will just go by book price and offer you just that, any extras or anything they just say better of selling privately.
    SPEC: ebony pearl black ~ auto lights ~ auto wipers ~ half leather/suede interior ~ armrest ~ anti dazzle rear mirrior ~ coming home/ leaving home function.

    MODS: flat bottom steering wheel ~ bluetooth ~ cruise control ~ rns-e ~ MY09 rear lights ~ s3 pedals ~ s3 air vents ~ LED interior light pack ~ facelift buttons ~ dension ~ SDS ~ Aliminium inlays ~ full grille conversion.

    FUTURE MODS: lower ~ black edition rear ~ s-line/facelift front ~ black headlining ~ BBS CH-R or Speedlines.

    I can only see it devaluing the car. anything away from std will knock the price and a 8p3 front end on a 8p2 car smacks of a front end smash.

    Many people are alive because its illegal to shoot them.
