    As a few of you will know, Ive been after my A3 for a while and am being very picky on what I want-170, Black, S-Line, Bose, 56 or newer and within my price range!

    Anyway I came across one on friday-

    56 reg, 54k miles, S-line, 170, Phantom Black, Bose, Sat Nav and its a Quattro for £13,450. I rang them and got pics but couldnt go and see it because I was busy all weekend and it got sold this morning as I was just about to leave to see it! :ermm:
    Anyway after looking again today I've found this...

    07reg, 60k miles, S-line, 170, Phantom Black and its a Quattro for £13,081 (random price I know) But do you think its a good price with that much mileage on that reg? and it's not got Bose but it is a quattro!? I really dont know what to do plus its a 2 and half hour drive from me!

    Oh and they both offered £3,700 for my current car!

    Thanks Lee :icon_thumright:

    Thanks for that woohoo but I think I prefer the 3 door.

    Yeah I'm happy with the price and monthly payments BUT I have heard the same about standard speakers! I just really want my car now! lol

    I think the high mileage cars would be due a cambelt service shortly, might be worth factoring this in

    Also check if it's been serviced recently, I bought mine but didn't check how many miles till service until the service light came on after about 2 months! But that's probably just me being not prepared and also the salesman taking advantage of my age!

    thanks guys, I'll give em a ring in the morning about servicing etc and get them to just check if it has got Bose or not-the guy didnt really know what he was talking about plus he had it advertised as a sport not s line ha

    Prices have certain dropped eh? So 2007 S-Line 170 quattros are going for £13k these days. So much for Audis holding their value...

    If you are even slightly usure mate, then leave it. It is not peanuts we are talking about here.

    IMO if you are gonna spend 13k+ on a car, you had better LOVE it!
