    Yep sure is, im a trader and i just had to let a b6 awx go for £1700 ! But i only paid £1500.
    90% of buyers at the moment are traders and most of the remaining 10% of private buyers want a px deal.
    There are very few people out there that want to be parting with thousands of pounds 4 weeks before xmas, not many at all.

    I won't sell mine for years! It's at 150k now and running fine (fingers crossed that will continue).

    I'm just about finished decorating my house for a year so now it's time to treat the car to a little TLC.

    Bonnet,,, Wings,, Bumper , The people who colour-coded my s-line bits did such a good colour match and job that I couldn't resist having the front end done when they offered to do it for £350..

    Me Also. I just don't want to let it go. I think alot of people sell or trade there car's because they think a newer car is better or has more modern day extras that they feel they need . Mine is staying

    I agree. No plans to shift mine at all, B8's don't really do it for me, although there are a few desirable ones floating about. The B7 has more potential, example:

    Thanks for the kind words Coll! Last thing I want to do but as I got my hands on a proper bargain to throw about in the winter its left me in the position to get my ass in gear saving for a house - if I could id also have mine till it ran into the ground.

    All the best guys.

    I will keep my B6 until the wheels fall off, for the car that it is and the money id get for it if i sold it don't tally up, so its not rocket science, keep a mint B6 with high miles or sell it if you can for £2k-£3k, and get another can of worms that you dont know whats wrong with it,,,,,,,,,,er , Na !

    Thats my thinking as well.
    So I'll keep my B5 will the wheels fall off but I might just put them back on and carry on. :)

    As above...I expect until the wheels fall off. Which won't be any time soon, the bolts have almost seized on :)

    B7 is appealing as James said, and I do love the b8's, but can't afford one of them for another 8 years until they're as old as mine is now

    As much as I love my B6, there will come a point where it doesn't become cost effective to keep paying out to keep it on the road, at which point I will probably go for a B7 but with the 3.0TDI engine and quattro....... B8 does absolutely nothing for me either......

    In saying all that, Why sell it atoll ? just keep it, if you fancy a 2nd car then have one of them too, Im really looking at buying a E46 M3 Coupe or a Cab for summer use and garage it in the winter as M3's in the snow are a proper joke next to a quattro,

    Agreed, it's pictures like that that make me think the B7 has potential.

    I sold my B6 a year ago with a heavy heart. It was a 52-reg 2.4SE automatic, in perfect nick, and drove beautifully, except for one thing. The multitronic was starting to show signs of giving up the ghost. I had the choice of spending £4k on a new box or £11k on a new car. in the end, I went for the latter, and for the past year, I've been the very proud owner of a B7 3.0TDi Quattro SE.
