    About to pull the trigger on an 8p3 1.8tfsi, but they got the mileage wrong wtf?

    Short version: lol
    Went to see an 58plate a3 sportback at my local stealer, wasnt the spec i liked so they showed me an black '09 1.8 tfsi s line with 16921 on the clock that was down south a ways by a few hours. spec looked good, has the blacked out grill and the black edition wheels, pics looked good, and they can ship it up to my local for me
    Deal, i said...
    Salesman calls me a couple hours ago and says the car has arrived (brilliant!)
    He mentions it has the ami port i enquired about, but that the mileage has somehow been taken down wrongly
    It has in fact actually 27k!
    Asked me what could he do to make the deal go through?
    I said i cant say anything until i see the condition of the car, as i thought with it being only 16k that it be minty mint!
    Am not happy to say the least...
    So im off to the garage first thing tomorrow morning and have a look at the condition.
    Im really hoping its in A1 cond tbh so they can take some moneys off the price
    Did the deal at £14k
    What should i be asking off the price, or extras etc??
    Opinions appreciated please

    For 16k miles £14k was a good price. I would go look but be prepared to walk out as they are obviously desperate for the deal.
    Obviously be cheeky and say £13 or 13,500..
    Current:
    A3 Black Edition 2.0 TDI 140
