    Hey guys i'm new around here just bought my first A3. I was wondering if I got a good deal on my car, here are the specs.

    39,000 miles
    new cam belt
    alloys
    Bose speakers
    black suade interior (absolutely spotless I may add :D)
    auto dimm rear view mirror

    I paid £2,400 for it, was this about average for that kinda car?

    I'd say you payed top money for your car based on your information, I'd expect the car to be near mint condition for the price. For the mileage though, if you plan to keep it a while, then it's nota bad investment if you don't mind paying 200+ roadtax every year. Modern 1.6's are usually cheaper to tax, don't think you car benefits from having lower emmisions.

    I always think the answer to that question is, "Do you feel like you got a good deal?" because that is all that matters....:sm4:

    Looks like you got a very good deal there, especially if you were after a low mileage one.
    Hope you enjoy it!
