    Hi there,

    I'm just about to take my first step onto the property ladder, and need to really look at selling the S3 to free up some cash, hopefully at some point i'll be able to get another Audi although for now i'm going to have to settle for something cheap and cheerful....sob...sob...

    Here is the spec, what do you recon I should aim for realistically?

    Audi S3 (2002) 77,000 miles

    -Merlin Purple
    -Silver leather
    -Aluminium wing mirrors
    -Bose
    -6 CD changer in dash
    -Heated front seats
    - Full Audi service history with stamps (including 80,000 major service, cambelt, water pump, new clutch)
    -18 inch BBS RSII's (unmarked)
    - MOT and taxed until August 2009
    -Totally standard apart from the wheels

    What do you guys/girls recon - I'm thinking £9000 from looking at other ads currently on the internet?

    Pictures can be added later.

    Thanks in advance

    Vern...

    The purple colour is definately an acquired taste so you'll be selling to a captive audience. I had a look at one when I bought mine and decided it was definately a womans car. Don't take offence mate! I wouldn't like to put a value on it. Possible £8k. Can't beleive how many people are selling their S3's at moment (including me)

    Aky - No offence taken, I can see where you are coming from....don't really want to sell it, but needs must :eek:(

    Voorheess, I would say the interior is pretty spotless and the seats look in very good condition, as are the carpets. The bodywork has no scraps or bangs hwever there are stone chips on the front which I guess is to be expected for a car that has done a few miles.

    Yeah it is hard picking a price, as I obviously wouldn't want it to go for sily money but am realistic enough to understand I'm not going to make much more (if any) than £9k.

    I personally like the colour, its something different....anyone whose trying to persuade their missus into getting an S3 and they are saying no would defo go for that.

    Same colour as our A3 1.8 TQS. Looks good, not a good time to sell though as S4s are as low as 4k at the mo

    I have to say that loks like a very nice car and you're being spot on with the price IMO.

    Should fly away once a few peeps have seen it.

    Cheers for the comments guys!

    No interest as of yet, but I was kind of expecting that really.
