    What is my car worth?? Answers on a postcard...

    Gents and Ladies,

    Got myself a new job (starting in July, currently on notice), and the company car policy states 4door diesel cars, thus my 3dr may have to go... (not sure how strict they will be!).

    Only had it since Dec'11 and spent a good amount getting it to a sound condition.

    I have searched on the Autotrader to get a value but cant find many 3dr diesel s-line quattro's about. Thus I have come to the experts... YOU!

    Details:

    Audi A3 TDI 170 Quattro S-Line Exclusive Ed

    • Full Audi Main Dealer Service History
    • 58000 Miles (will go up slightly due to day to day use)

    • Brake fluid change in Jan'12.
    • New front and rear brake pads in Jan’12.
    • New OEM turbo fitted by Audi main dealer in Dec’11, carries 2years Audi warranty.
    • Four new injectors fitted by Audi main dealer in Dec’11 as part of model recall.
    • New DPF & Exhaust sensor fitted in Jan’12 along with full DPF regeneration.
    • Suspension upgraded in Feb’12 to Eibach Pro Kit along with new front shockers and mounts.
    Paint work needs a bit of TLC, some stone chips on front bumps and hair line scratches on some panels due to normal wear - I aim to get this sorted too.
    They is slight vibration in the front right wheel when turning left which I am sorting at Audi.

    Let me know what you think is a fair price! No silly 50p and a bag of scratchings comments! :-)

    are you sure mate? 16k sounds like 8P3 money!


    here are some other 3 door examples. yes they do not match the same spec but it gives you a rough idea of a price bracket, the 8P3 at £14k and the lower mileage 8P2 at £12k

    Quicks Sunderland : AUDI A3 2.0 TDI Sport 3dr

    Belgrave Motor Company : Audi A3 TDI S Line


    here is one from Auto trader - 3dr s-line 170

    AUDI A3 2.0 TDI 170 S LINE 3DR S TRONIC Hatchback for sale in Dalkeith | Auto Trader


    just trying to give you a rough price... looks like £11k-£12k

    Can't find the Exclusive on CAP, but the 170 Q S-line retails at £10,595. A dealer will add on a bit for the sat nav etc, but probably won't pay extra for it. If you traded it in, expect c£9k. As suggested, you should sell off the wheels and lights separately tho.

    £16k!! You can get an S3 8P3 for that money!!

    Imperial Car Supermarket : AUDI S3 Quattro - LEATHER - XENONS - SAT NAV 2008

    I'd say £11-12k was what to aim for.
    Now:
    TTS, Leon Cupra R, MK2 Golf GTi 16v BB 3dr & MK4 Golf "GTi" 2.0 8v


    Past:
    S3 8P3
    A3 2.0T
    S3 8L REVO
    306 Rallye
    Impreza STi8
    Leon Cupra R REVO
    S3 8L REVO
    Impreza T2000
    306 Rallye
    MK3 Golf GTi 8v
    & more in between

    I'd say that was priced about right, and it's a nice looking car!

    I would say its because it priced too high, 6 months ago I sold my ibis white a3 s line 57 reg, 2.0 Tfsi s-tronic 47k miles, FSH fully loaded with nav, Bose, two tone leather, xenons, ect and it had also had the 2011 s3 facelift and I only sold that for £11k. HPI clear too.
    Current
    2006 56 A3 S Line 2.0 TFSI Special Edition Moro Blue

    previous
    2007 A3 S Line 2.0 TDI 170 S-tronic phantom black
    2006 VW Golf Gti Black
    2008 S3 Dolphin Grey
    2007 A3 S Line 2.0 TFSI S-Tronic Ibis White
    2005 A3 S Line 2.0 TDI S-tronic Brilliant Red
