    :blownose:Due to a change in my financial priorities (Me and the missus are on the search for our 1st house) I may need to sell the Audi and down size. Will be gutted as its the best car I have ever owned but unfortunately, its got to be done :(

    Im and trying to guage how much its worth as I have only had it for 2 months.

    The spec if the following:

    Audi A3 S Line 2007 07
    21k miles
    1.8T 160
    Dolphin Grey
    Upgraded Vienna Black Leather
    Heated Seats
    RS4 Black Edition Alloys
    Optics Grill
    Multifunction Steering Wheel
    Front Centre Armrest
    Rear Parking Sensors
    Carpet Mats

    Any ideas what is worth to trade in or sell privately? What sort of range should I be expecting?

    I have been offered £14k for part exchange (aswell as a good deal on the car I am looking at)

    Getting £14k would pay off my finance and leave me with £500 cash in hand

    Does £14k seem fair or do people think I can get more for it?

    Trade price for your car is £13600 in mint condition with that mileage, so the dealer is in the right area. You might get slightly more than 14k privately but then it might take a little while to sell and it wont be that much more.

    Seems a good price, swap the wheels + cash with someone before trading it in though, they wont give you any extra for them!

    What car are you looking at & price they are selling to you for as that could be the one they're making money on which allows good trade in on yours.
