Finally found an A3 with the spec I've been looking for. Called the dealer only to receive bad news.
I was looking to spend Ł300 max per month. The A3 I found is up for Ł14900. The best that can do is Ł337 with no down payment, however now for the next bit.
I currently own a Vectra (see sig) which Audi will only offer me a max of Ł8000 for. The settlement figure on the Vectra is Ł11000. So I'm Ł3000 in negative equity which, Audi also said they cannot soak up.
Also looked into a personal loan from TSB to cover the whole Ł18000, but again they could only offer me a figure which is nearly Ł100 over budget!
Also tried getting figures for a Ł3000 loan, which again when added to Audi's Ł337 figure is well over my budget.
Anyone got any suggestions other than the obvious?
(keeping the Vectra, which I regret buying 110%)
