    That's a really nice colour, and unusual.....looks really nice but i've always been a sucker for blue and you really don't see many dark blue cars, especially Audi 'S' cars....lovely colour.

    Enjoy your new baby, and get some more pics on here when you bring it home..:))

    Also, what's the spec, what goodies has it got and what plans have you got for it if any ?

    Got a phone call this morning which I didnt really take to so my mate was told to go away and come back when his figures matched mine.
    They were giving me £15.5k for my S3 which I thought was a litle low. I want over £17k for it so see what happens.

    You'll probably have better luck selling the car privately mate! Get it on autotrader and pistonheads.

    bootiful!! sell your car privately! or at least advertise it. I did that with my Mini when buying my S3. They offered me £7000. I had a week until they took it as part ex. I advertised it on PH explaining the car was being traded end of week and had to go quick. I got £8200 which was still not great but paid for my insurance for the year! :)

    Well if I sell the car it goes with it and new owner can acquire one. The RNSE can stay with it too. If the garage up their offer to meet my figure then everything will be coming of it....FBMFSW, RNS-E, LED's, Heko deflectors. Basically I will return it back to stock and disembody all the mods Ive done.....shouldnt take long.

    Would of said £17.5k for an 8P2 S3 was a bit steep to be honest let alone trying to get £17k on a trade in, 8P3's have been out nearly four years now and are getting to that money...

    Well trade in was £15.5 so its not really that much higher considering the garage is the main delaer Audi garage in Edinburgh. I think that between £17K and £17.5K isnt too bad IMO.

    £17500 is 8P3 money if you ask me. That's only £1400 less than I paid for my S3 8P3 12 months ago with 12k on it from an Arnold Clark garage.

    So the opinion is go for the £15.5k trade-in from dealer then.....wanted slightly more than that but hey if I cant get more then stubborn buyer comes into play.

    Just used this and £14.4k top whack for average condition. Seeing as mine is immaculate then £15.5k isnt bad then.....hmmmm. Time to have another strategy me thinks.

    Thanks for the price comments guys. Go to see positive comments and feedback from fellow owners.

    Just go for it bud, I'm also taking a bit of a knock on my 2011 Gti. But I'm sure the moment I'm driving my new baby off the floor it'll make the blow feel a lot softer. Looking at the comments I agree, accept the dealer offer and move on. :icon_thumright:

    Agreed your in that in between mark, you want slightly more but slightly more is close to 8p3 money so I'd bite the bullet and just upgrade to the new one and as said once your behind the wheel and that paintwork is in the sunlight you won't regret it one bit.

    Plus its a hell of a lot easier going with the dealer than getting a load of tyre kickers and wasting your time

    Didn't mean to sound harsh, but would hate to see you loose that S3 because your waiting to get a price you would never get from your trade in!
