    What sort of price do you reckon you would get if you tried to sell an A3 Sportback 2.0T quattro 6-12 months old? Or should I ask what would people pay? Roughly 10% off the best buy price?!? Or is that being generous. Talking about private sale. Car with about £2500 options on top of the basic car price.

    I have seen VERY few of them for sale as I guess they have only been being sold for 9 months now. One on autotrader.co.uk with 7000 miles was £20K. Sound about right?

    Would you guys go for a 1 year old version or prefer to plump for a new one?

    Theres a few on Top Marques, going from around £21+. Yours sounds good, with excellent choice of extras which would help the sale.

    Is yours a low miler, and any reason for the sale?

    Yeah I may have to leave the country unexpectedly, but not until around October-November. I just don't do that many miles - my trip to work is around 12 miles and I 've been doing less business mileage than I thought.

    I considered shipping the thing to Australia where I might be going but import duty and shipping are a killer so I'll probably just have to sell it.

    And I'd even leave the Dension installed - insert ipod = party central!!!

    Anyway if anyone reading is mildly interested or knows someone that might be, watch this space around Oct-Nov.

    Nothing like someone eating the first year's depreciation for you!

    Taking the /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif! I should be able to get 22K for it at least. 24K is just ridiculous. YOu can get it through DTD for less than that new surely?

    I'm sure you will have no trouble selling if you keep it to £20k or just a little under /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    The problem for most people of buying through someone like DTD is trade-in. When I change my car I always do it through my dealer and whilst I may pay a little more on the list price I always get a very good trade-in price and with no hassle. I also get 'service' from my dealer including any small jobs that I might otherwise have to pay for, for free and borrowing demonstrators for weekend to have a 'proper' test drive.

    Drive my old car to the dealer and drive away in the new one. As I have a personal plate it's quite strange when I change my car to see 2 cars on the forecourt with the same number !

    New golf? What's wrong your A3? Sounds specced out like a mofo!
