    Well, it looks like I might have to sell my baby /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif The cost of fuel and driving 40 miles a day aren't doing my bank balance any good, so I might have to change to the dark side again!

    Anyone know what she would fetch?

    A3 3.2 Quattro Sport - Akoya Silver, Pebble Grey Interior - 2004/04 plate
    Heated Leather Seats
    Electric Lunbar support
    6CD Changer
    6100 miles

    I'm hoping to get £22k, does that seem realistic? I've seen some A3's on autotrader with similar or less spec and higher miles go for about that

    Help please!
    Cheers
    Mike

    mike 22k seems a reasonable starting price but be prepred to drop it a little but not too much like I did.
    mine was 53 reg, with 10,5k but body kit, 18'' wheels, full leather, heated seats, Electric Lunbar support, 6CD Bose concert, and it went for £20,750 private with an asking price of 22k. I regret it and should not have dropped it below 21k. Not a big financial difference but in the mind it does!!!
    Top marques is definitely a good idea!

    Regarding fuel, I understand (mainly the second half does) and we got ourself a left hooker fiesta 1.4 TDCI (5 doors for the kids to come). Cant do much much more economical

    Cheers

    Cheers guys, things aren't looking too bad now, was worried I might take a big depreciation hit already of £3-4k!!

    If I ask for £22k, at least I won't loose much vs the finance

    LOL a 40 mile trip to work I was doing 150 miles a day in the r32 now that hurt!!!!

    Good luck with the sale Mike, Audi only offered me £16K for my r32 when I asked for a trade in price (12month old car with 18K on the clock and mint!) I got a lot more for it in the end.

    the 3.2 is a killer, i'm sticking in £45 worth either every day or every other day. Fortunately I have a fuel card that the company pays private and business mileage for.

    Without it I couldnt even begin to think about affording it.

    Hope you get a decent deal selling it.
