    Please can someone give me an idea of how much to advertise my 2.8Q A4 for?

    I have a 2.8 Quattro A4 and im looking to sell it, putting it in the classified on here. I just dont know what to advertise it for. Could anyone help?

    Some details:

    97 A4 Quattro 2.8 V6 Manual
    142k with some service history
    Full Black Leather
    Aircon / Climate
    6CD / Audi Concert
    16" Audi alloys
    Years MOT
    6 Month Tax
    Full Stainless exhaust from Longlife
    Lowered on S4 springs


    Bad bits:
    Scabbiness on drivers front arch

    Recent work:
    £2k of receipts from last two years
    Replaced ABS control module last year
    Full service last week.
    Full MOT
    New flexy done at C&C Stainless exhausts last week
    Two new front tyres (last week, again for MOT)
    New rear wheel bearings
    Aside from the above scabby arch, car is spotless as is interior.
    Everything works
    Regularly just bimbles along at 31mpg average
    VAGCOM scans clear. Will include VAGCOM cable and software with sale.

    I would love a guide price please.

    Hi mate, i buy, fix and sell cars (often buy them with issues!) and unfortunately they don't sell too well at the moment ! I would say £1500 tops being a quattro and the right time of the year for them, sometimes you can break it for more or just about that ! Just as a guide, 1.8TQS sell for £1000 to £2000 and they are newer platform and smaller engines + a little more special being tweaked by GMBH- the tuning part of VAG group responsible for s and rs models !

    I have 2x b5 avants 1.8TQS fully loaded: parking sensors, ESP, climate,cruise, nice 17" alloy wheels + new tyres, half leather seats and i am asking £1100 for one (needs few bits: door card and 2 rear window trims) and £1600 for the other (later has brand new turbo, brand new clutch, Eibach suspension, new shocks all round, remapped to 225Bhp, Forge blow off valve and much, much more!) and i only get daft offers for them !!!

    I also have a b5 tdi quattro sport, avant, been fully resprayed last year, facelift s4 bumpers, leather, cruise, 180Bhp v6 tdi diesel engine, rs4 rear diff, new propshaft, rs4 rear ARB 17mm, full Lemforder front suspension, genuine rs4 shocks all round, Eibach springs, short shifter, Bose, etc. Had it advertised for 2.5k and not even a call !?!

    Please bear in mind that diesels are much more desirable than petrols and often sought after by eastern europeans who have spare cash and don't mind higher mileage IF in good mechanical nick !
    FOR SALE:
    -Golf mk 5/audi a3 1.6 FSI fuel pump, brand new genuine part boxed + seals
    -audi a3 (1998 to 2003) genuine clutch slave cylinder to fit 1.6 engines BRAND NEW
    -Rear bush press tool to fit new rear axle bushes on Golf Mk3/4, Audi a3/S3, Seat Leon/Toledo, Skoda Octavia mk 1/2 used once

    In Kingfisher Blue too! £900 is a fair price. Any lower and you're giving it away.
    Is that with or without VAT?

    yeh i'd say your talking under a grand for a PFL 2.8.

    Bottom line is that its a 15 year old car, with a big thirsty engine.

    Your £900 asking price seems like a sensible starting point

    Looks a nice clean motor, with plenty of recent work, but as others have said its a 15 year old motor, with a big ole petrol engine. So i'd say anywhere from £900 (cheap) to around £1300...I'd advertise it for £1250, and see what happens.
