    Currently looking at used S3's at a couple of dealers but as expected the offered part ex of my 350z is woeful. I am probably £1500 away from where I want to be to change. Any thoughts on what I am liable to be able to get off either the price or increased part ex?

    As a generalisation you should look for £1-2k off list price with no px . or base trade price on any px.

    guess it all depends on how badly they need the sale and the time of the month, when i got mine i got a grand trade in my old car... even tho a good private sale would have been 6-700 and i got from memory about 13% off list price

    Easy. Sell the Z privately. And then try again.

    Sell the Z and go in with 'cash'. I am looking for a used 8P S3 and will be expecting a decent discount for no P/X, current financial climate etc.

    Agree.
    I alway do this and have always ended up significantly better off on the deal. I sold my last car for 2k more than best p/x price offerred and bought the S3 without p/x. Its a bit more hassle but worth the 2k in my pocket.

    Good luck

    Doesn't his logic still apply to the OP's question?.

    It does but only to a degree. The prices of 8L will be far more sensitive to condition and originality than the newer 8P which at an Audi dealer are most likely to be straight and unmollested.
