    I got my car from these guys about 3 weeks ago. Go see it first before you commit there was a few things with my one I wasn't happy with but they did sort it out and I think I got a good deal. Steve was very friendly.

    i went to see it today and i spoke to steve as well it was a bit the same with me it needed a few things sorting out wheel refurb on a couple of allots 2 nasty chip marks and also they had tried to get a dent out and cracked the paintwork on back passenger door and when they tried to do it they had put a 2cm hole in inside of the door rubber seal just under where the back window is but he did say he would sort it out if i was seriously interested in buying it.

    yeah there wasnt on the front that was one of the reason i thought it seemed like a good buy its not very often you get front and back.yeah i love that interior as well rather have that interior than any other i think but seats were a bit hard compared to what i am driving now but dealer said its like that on all german cars.

    As a comparison, a few months back Sheffield Audi had a better car listed for sale for the same price. It was a Sportback Quattro Sline (petrol), 2007 57 plate, one owner from new (bought originally from same dealer), very rare Daytona Grey (looked stunning) and had done less mileage with 18300 miles. The interior was the same, two tone black/silver leather but was the more expensive nappa leather and they were heated seats. There was many other extras like Bose, ipod dock, auto lights/wipers, interior light package, MFSW, arm rest etc. I went to view the car and it was mint both inside and out, I could not see a single scrach as well as the alloys. The car also had a new set of tyres put on all round. I was also all offered a couple hundred quid off the list price, free Audi breakdown cover and since it was from a maindealer you get full peace of mind with a full 12 months warranty. I made the decision 3 days after after viewing to buy it but when I called it had already been sold! Here is the link to the car....

    Unless you can get a good discount on the one your looking at, I would suggest you shop around a bit more because I'm sure you'll find a much better deal.

    Looks like a cracking car but a 4 year old car with miles that low (less than 5,000 per year) makes me suspicious. If it was something special like a R8 that won't be driven daily then fair enough but that's a daily driver, why is the mileage less than half the average?

    because someone like me owned it!! Not everyone uses the car to commute to work. I have a work van so my car sits in the garage unless I use it for pleasure. Mine is 5 years old next March and only has 23k miles on it...
