    Way too high, my local dealer is knocking 07 plates out fairly well specced at 25k.

    My new one without the options cost less than 27k with the 7% discount I sorted.

    Take it on the chin Dave you will have to lower it to at least 25k to sell I think!

    £25k would be top whack. Dealer would offer £20k for it - private seller no more than £23k.

    Credit crunch, economic uncertainty - blah blah. List price after options for mine was £32.5k new but I paid £29,800 after discount. There's no way I'd buy a second hand one with 7,000 on the clock for £2k less !!

    If I could get anything over £26k for mine I would trade it in for a new facelift model myself - but I'd be dreaming at that price.

    That's £7.8k depreciation in the 10 months I've owned it then. Ouch. Good job I'm not thinking of selling it .....

    Yep its **** isn't it!

    Suppose that old saying of losing a grand and the vat you have payed by driving off the forecourt on pick up day is very true!

    I knew that DVD SatNav decision was a good one. My dealer had the car delivered 2 months (!!) before the date they had given me. I told them they'd have to keep it on their forecourt for 2 months as I didn't have the money saved (a lie). They said if I took it off their hands I could have the full DVD SatNav with Bluetooth Phone retro fitted for an extra £450.

    Thanks !

    Do want a facelift model but can't justify the depreciation sting just for some different DRLs. Do want one though !

    Snap! i paid 26k for mine in Jan with 6.5k on the clock with average spec and i had to barter HARD to get it at that price ( £1000 off , free first service , free GAP , free tax, free supergaurd , free tank of fuel )

    I can't afford to lose K's for the sake of " a face lift " so i'll have to keep it till the price's bottom out, and i hope mine will be a low mile ( for year ) well maintained example and get top whack for it at the time of sale/P/X

    never achieve 27k, not even close to it, i suspect orange will be a difficult sell anyway.
    Good luck anyway !!

    My S-Line Q was £27K when new, i bought it from Audi as ex demo for less than 20K.... The car had basically lost a grand a month since new which is scary depreciation!

    Agree with that, I saw a couple of yellow and orange S3s hanging around for a good while when I was looking to buy mine.

    Good luck anyway.

    I was offered £23.5k by an Audi dealer for a 3 week old 2008 S3 with 350 miles on the clock, fully loaded with recaros, RNS-E, prep the lot - that's a 6k loss in 3 weeks!
