    check it against www.oneswoop.com
    They are non import cars...

    You could get close to that with a dealer I suspect if you took the quote in...

    I would not get an import fpr that price, one year warranty remember and Audi charge around £1400 for the extra two years, no longer looks that good a deal.

    If I hadn't wanted a DSG I would have bought jasew's car, superb spec. great looking car, and he has very kindly taken the biggest hit in price already;)
    Plus you will still have over 2 years more warranty than an import.

    my local dealer the only one in N Ireland wont give me more that £500 of the car which makes it £20200 which is £2000 more than the import theres no way the car will be worth £2000 less in a couple of years it is full uk spec so no different other than the warranty

    Yeah I had a trade in when I bought the BMW and traded it with the guy in Belfast.

    I have just put a deposit on an A3 S-line yesterday and I advertised my Avant on ebay, sold it in a day.
    Ebay is great for selling cars, £8 to list and a flat rate of £16 if it sells.
    Sold the BMW touring on there and our ML270cdi.
    The hardest part is getting round to putting the advert up.

    i went back to the dealer today and tried to get them to drop the price some more but they wouldnt or couldnt the bloke i saw asked if i want to take the model i was getting out for a test drive even after i said i was going to broadspeed or the importer
    he told me the importers deal was very very good but to go for the broadspeed deal instead as i would get 3 years warranty and roadside support
