    Best place to sell my beloved V10 RS6?

    As the title suggests, I intend to sell my C6 RS6 and wanted to check with you guys where the best place to do that would be?

    I usually just sell cars back to the dealers as a trade-in but this time I am swapping it for a company lease car, so can't do that.

    Also, I hear its not particularly easy to sell cars over about 30k privately as people then need finance arranged and you get a lot of non-genuine punters who just want a free test drive in a nice car.

    So does anyone have a suggestion on where would be the best place to sell. I'm not in a hurry so won't be lowering prices for a quick sale....

    Many thanks,

    Alex

    The BIG problem is that if I sell it - what do I replace it with?! Nothing on the market even comes close for the resale RS6 prices (for a petrol head). This decision is driving me bonkers. I have the 3 year MOT due next week and will be sitting down with Audi to discuss options. I will let you know how this goes...

    It was originally the Wolverhampton Audi Directors company car, but they put it on the market from new. By the time I got it one month later, it had about 1800 miles on the clock.

    Given up trying to sell to a dealer - they were all offering laughable prices saying they didn't know how long they would have it for before they could resell it.

    So trying to sell it privately now. Had to put a lot of money into the car though to get it as new as possible, plus servicing, plus road tax, plus extended warranty - which has bumped up the price

    I may have a private buyer this weekend but if that falls through then will have to do more advertising...

    i am now looking to purchase an rs6, probably at the end of this year.. is the 0-62 really that slow? 4.6 seconds for a 580bhp car does seem quite a lot slower than other vehicles available...

    when you are at the helm it feels alot quicker than 4.6.

    its might have 580hp but it has over 2 tonnes to pull so doing the maths is very fast for whats its doing.

    get yourself a test drive in one and then you will feel that 4.6sec comes very fast, and that day to day driving you have the quickest car on the road.

    And the correct answer was - wewantanycar.com

    I got SO fed up detailing the car and people not showing up to look at it.

    Less money than private but more money than dealers.
