    To buy or not to buy, that is the question....

    My 59 reg (MY 2010) A3 Sport Sportback 1.8 reaches the end of it's lease at the end of the year. I have the option to buy it for
    just under £10,500. It currently has 12,800 miles on the clock, and will probably have little over 15,000 miles by the end of the lease.
    Any opinions on whether it is worth buying, running it for three or four years, then selling it on/trading it in for for something newer? It has the following extras fitted:

    Cruise Control
    Exterior Door Mirrors-Electrically Fldng
    High-Beam Assist
    Interior Light Pack
    Light/Rain Sensor Pack
    Luggage Compartment Pack
    Metallic Paint
    Non Smoking Pack
    Storage Pack
    Tyre Pressure Monitor

    id say its a good price, most the modules should be highline, price of the car is reflected by the new chassis release

    " most the modules should be highline" - sorry, but I'm not sure what that means.

    To give you a comparison I bought a 3 1/2 year old 1.9 TDi Sport Sportback with 60k on the clock which was pretty much fully loaded

    Metallic paint
    Alcantara half leather
    Bluetooth
    Symphony 6 cd changer
    Folding mirrors
    Auto lights
    Auto wipers

    The bodywork was not too good, peppered with stone chips and a scratch on the door but at the time it was the cleanest I could find without intergalactic mileage

    The price - the same as they are asking you for yours.

    Defo one to buy with only 12k on the clock and you have driven it from new ! If you don't want it buy it and I will have it off you
