    Trade in, or sell privately (incl photo)

    Audi A3 2007 2.0 TDI.
    35k
    Full Audi SH
    Cambelt last year

    I have been offered £6,800 trade in. A friend in the trade says the trade in value is £7,500.
    It's as perfect an example as you will ever see.

    All depends on whether you need the cash to put towards another car - and if you want the hassle or are even able to keep two cars at once.

    you will get more selling privately, but if they offered you 6800 and your mate says its 7500, tell the dealer to up their price or no deal.
    Is your mate getting trade price from Glass`s guide?

    And they give power to people like you? Scary stuff.

    Anyway, I wouldn't say that was a bad trade in offer imo but you could definitely get more private, 35k miles is really low for an 07

    I know this may seem an obvious point, but I always concentrate on the cost to change. I don't mind if the dealer gives me a terrible part ex offer if the car I'm buying is cheap - it's up to the dealer, but there's no point getting a better price selling privately just so you can go and pay over the odds for the next car.

    Take the £6,800 and negotiate £1000 off the replacement.
