    I'd probably go view it as they are not the best quality photos. If it has full service history and every thing checks out fine get it.
    Bare in mind in 2k you will need to get the waterpump and cambelt changed. Every 60k or 4years i think which ever one comes first.
    Can you put a small deposit on it till you can view it?

    Yeah try and get it for £5k. I'm pretty sure its 60k but im sure the other guys will confirm or it may be different with petrol and diesel?
    Does it come with full audi service history already? Or just full service history. If its full audi i'd probably ask them to pay audi or take it off the price. Anyway let us know the outcome and good luck:thumbsup:

    Nally, go online and see what yours is fetching and pick the average price.... then deduct this from his screen price and bear in mind he'll have anything from £1k to £1500k profit in his car.... minus the service costs probably.....then find the cost of the car your buying

    simple maths mate with a little bit of research and you'll see if its a good deal or not....id look for ya but i cant be arsed :)

    picking it up on 14th its awaiting prep. so if I sell mine for more than 7.5 that will be sweet the deposit is subject to test drive but its 200 miles away so hopfully not a waisted jurney. might put mine on piston heads its just on here, gumtree, and autotrader. its a bit more money than I wanted to spend but most of the really good p2,s are going for about 12k. if anyone knows anyone after a 3door I am looking at taking offers 8k ovno. cheers all nally

    will do ash. :friends:

    i have a quck question for everyone

    i have seen videos on youtube of road cars on test tracks and it looks like the rear light (flicker) is this just a camera trick or is this a safety setting you can see an example on this video below from 14 seconds in. the drl's look like they ( flicker/ flash) is this in race mode or just a funny camera fault in the way the light is captured.?

    No, they're factory fit mate. They are the same principle, but work properly with the car.
    You can change to bulb colour temperature. IIRC they come with 4600k so you could go bluer if you want.

    My car is going great, got an S3 chrome grill and H+R spacers coming this week, it hasn't got Sat nav.....yet :)

    What engine is it? I think you've got that for a good price if it's a 2.0L TDI which I'm assuming it is.

    the reason the lights flicker is due to them being LED.. The cameras cant hack it or something like that!

    also, with the mileage, check for stone chips. Mine is riddled with them, got touch up paint ready and waiting for the weekend!

    Nally is not a happy Bunny

    car was supposed to come in today so i can book time of work to pick the car up.
    called the garage and they said " the buyer rejected the car" before i had a chance to say anything he said" its ok i have found you another one with 1k more on, ill send you the pics now"

    checked my emails

    its a F@£king 8p2 i can get one of them for 10k.

    called him back and i am not proud to say i lost my cool. " well you have have been more anoyed if the car wasnt right" then i really seen red (he made it sound like they had the car when i put a deposit in it and it was waiting to be transported).
    it evan says the reg on my reciept

    "ill call the buyer now but you wont get a responce tonight (5.30pm)"

    i am so angry, and i am pretty sure this is illeagle.

    :crying:

    So you put a deposit on a car they didn't have?

    Don't think it's illegal mate, Lincoln Audi wanted my mum to do it with the A1 she's going to look at tomorrow, they only got it in today.

    Suck that though mate, did he say why they rejected it? Where is it from?
