Very true and the VR6 was rather special at the time. But out of interest I have been given a trade-in value of around 55% of original value for all my A3 1.8T Sport's up to now after usually between 3 and 4 years old. It will be interesting to see what I'm offered for my current A3 when it's time to change for probably another A3, possibly a 2.0 TDI 170.
Them were't different days..
VR6's were quite sought after then,petrol prices weren't so ridiculous and roadtax didn't go by Co2 rating.
If you were to do a direct comparison today,you would have to look at the Golf R32.
I doubt one of them will still be worth 50% of it's value after 4 years and 60K miles.
They're going for anything between £27K and £32K new,so still worth between £13.5K and £16K in four years and 60K miles ?
Time will tell I suppose,but if the 3.2 A3 is anything to go by,I doubt it.
