    Seems like a bargain? Is it too good to be true?

    I have been searching for a new diesel ideally quattro s-line edition. I came across this on autotrader and it seems a bargain.

    I know its a cat d but that doesn't mean its a dog. I have phoned them up and asked about the damage and the guy said it was just panel damage.

    What do you think? Is it worth a look?

    not a bargain imo, you can find same for a similar price which aren't cat D if you look around.

    example: Audi A3 2.0 TDI S Line Quattro | eBay

    also it looks like that one you linked is a TDI sport, not s line. Just s line seats

    Wouldnt touch a cat c.... Cat C with panel damage?

    Sounds iffy to me... That should be sitting around the 4.5k mark, not 6k

    Sometimes you have to travel to get the right car.. Get as much info as possible over the fone before travelling... State that your travelling a distance to see it and they need to be as honest as possible due to the journey and that you will not take the car if its anythingg other than described... Do your homework on it..

    I went a 14hr round trip to buy my S3... The 6hr drive back home was great tho, flew in

    Why? Every Scottish car I've ever had has been brilliant, better than English ones!
