    Hi guys,

    Can you tell me the pricerange on used 8P S3 in the UK?
    Or even better, give my car a fair pricetag in the UK.
    Its in mint condition, never machine washed...

    -Ibiswhite
    -Bucket seats
    -Symphony stereo
    -Bose
    -Flattened steering wheel
    -Light/rain sensor
    -Front/back armrest

    -7000 km

    I ask because I have it for sale here in Sweden and I know the pricerange here, would be interesting to compare to the UK market.

    Just found a car on the Audi site with 8000miles in Ibis white, bucket seats and similar spec for £28950. Seems quite cheap really as other colours seem to be more expensive.

    They do appear to be a bit cheaper over there, maybe because the steering wheel is on the wrong side. Most of the cars over here are around the 30k mark.

    Have to be careful in these types of arguments as I seem to recall you guys had a change of heart and decided to swap over to driving on the 'wrong side' a great number of years ago...

    ...I do wonder what it must have been like for the change over day, "right then at 16:00 your on the left and at 16:01 your on the right"...

    ...bit of an arse if you happen to be on a dual carridgeway! :happy:

    I noticed that one too (if its the same one I'm thinking about) and thought it was fairly cheap for a new S3 too.

    Its always the same the more "wild" the colours ie yellow, orange and white fetch lower trade in prices when sold hence they are cheaper to buy second hand.

    The buyer is never told this at the dealers, its always "excellent colour choice sir, that will really stand out and look nice etc".

    However when its time to sell the dealer gives very low trade in prices as the colour is not to everyones taste and they have to take a little gamble selling it as it my take a while for the right person to come along.

    This happened on the 8L S3 on the used Audi site, the Imola Yellow and Absolute Red ones were always cheaper than equivalent models in other colours.

    As for trade in prices on the new S3, I haven't seen one for below 28.5K and thats cheap as most that have been sold have been specced up and are around 30k and more. Don't forget they only became available since Jan and the dealers know they can charge literally full price for a nearly new/demo and people will buy it to avoid waiting for a build and to beat the waiting list.

    Seems like I hit a touchy subject;)
    Sweden changed into righthand traffic in 1967. All european countries have righthand traffic execept the UK, Malta, Cyprus and Ireland. (Don't u just love Wikipedia)

    Hmmm...why is the price much higher in the UK? Is this general for all cars, both used and new ones?

    Maybe the charge you extra because the have to convert the steering to the wrong side :)
