    IIRC, If you crash a car within the first year or something, some insurance companys give you a new one.

    It may have just had a little bump and has been repaired.

    Cat D is the lightest damaged possible, chances are the owner got a brand new replacement.

    Theres a black Cat C repaired on the Autotrader for £14.995! Now thats a bargain!;)

    Oh and accidents can happen any time you know! Its age is irrelevant, my guess is inexperienced driver gets fast car, gets caught out and hello hedge! :applaus:

    but isnt a write off when the damage costs more to repair than to buy a new one?

    so age dependant, it would cost a lot for a new one. so my logic was that i would be a lot of damage

    Normally half the value to replace the car.

    Its a truly awful ad, why do we need to know that it has oval tailpipes? and other cack like this......Left exterior mirror: convex
    Locking wheel bolts
    Moldings
    Rear fog light
    Rear window wash wipe
    Remote-control central locking
    Removable luggage cover
    Roof spoiler
    S3 badge at rear
    Scuff plates with S3 logo
    Seatbelts, 3-point automatic on all seats

    An S3, with an S3 badge, funny that?

    Anyway, if RRP is in fact 32K (which it cant be with that spec) then it would be probably nearer 29k with discount, and now its used (lightly) and pre-owned, you would probably get it for 26K in an un recorded condition, so on that basis 23k isnt what I would call particularly cheap for one thats been stuffed.

    And I reckon you could have problems getting AUDI to honour any future warranty work.
    Not the sort of thing I would want to spend 23K on.
    Good luck to them, but its a daft price IMO.
    23K gets you a LOT of used S3 theses days. Why pay top dollar for one thats been in a ditch?

    Oh, and if you decide to stick into a ditch again, the insurance company will offer you around 60% of trade value. Which I would guess is less than 15K ?

    cheers
    Paul

    And are people goign to fall for the 'very rare car' - also why are they listing the 'ambition' spec - I didnt think we got that over here, I thought that was German / European spec descriptor?
