    Not sure that works with Audis, as they control the supply too well, which keeps the prices well up. If you want a nearly new bargain, you have to stick to the likes of Ford, Peugeot & Vauxhall, who are still massively oversupplying the market, and end up having to knock stuff out six months old with nominal mileage, at two thirds the list price or less. That's how I got a Cavalier V6 Auto with 1500 miles for 10K instead of 18K.

    Best Vauxhall I ever had. (Don't laugh, it really was a good car!)

    I always buy Second Hand - No point innew cars - Who wants to pay 30K for a new car for it to be worth 25K as soon as you drive off the forecourt?

    Yeah exactly go for ex demo or 1-2 year olds or at least something which still has warranty cause invariably you will need it for something. As for brand new....thats just for people who dont have to worry about money they lose as soon as the drive away from new.
