    no disrespect fella as i dont know who you are, but i think your pistonhead add makes the car sound a dog. (the last bit mainly) i think you have gone into to much detail about the bad bits. say the bad bits, leave it at that. Some mite think it sounds like your trying to make excuses for the bad points.

    good luck with the sale bud :)

    this is yours,
    Due to a change of circumstances i am selling my Audi to get a 4x4 towcar.Its a 1999 pre-facelift model in imola yellow with full black leather and black headlining.It has done 150000 miles but has full history and had a replacement engine(plus most of the ancillary parts) fitted at 97000 by truro audi.I have only had the car since july but have spent a fortune on getting it upto scratch.
    4x new tyres
    brand new LCD display(warranted)
    18" black rs4 alloys
    All new suspension links
    all new brake pads
    Brand new Audi concert radio(with modified volume control-common fault)
    Brand new audi cd changer
    new engine mounts(inc snub mount)
    full stainless cobra exhaust system
    K&N induction kit
    private plate included
    chrome wing mirrors
    new alternator
    tinted windows
    all the usual S4 spec inc climate control ect.
    Tax til end of march 2010
    test till oct 1st 2010

    Bad points
    a few weeks ago the passenger door was damaged(dented and slight scuff).
    few marks on body as you would expect for a 10 year old car

    I have tried to be as honest as i can and this could be a real bargain
    Thanks for looking


    there is nothing wrong with what you wrote but this is how i would put it.

    Here you are looking at my much loved 1999 S4. Due to a change of circumstances i am selling to get a 4x4 towcar as the Audi is no longer pratical for what i now need. . She has done 150000 miles and has full history. I also have the paper work to proove the replacement engine(plus most of the ancillary parts) fitted at 97000 by truro audi.

    Car has all the normal S4 goodies such as:
    Full leather interior,
    Fully working climate control,
    brand new LCD display(warranted)
    18" black rs4 alloys -with 4x new tyres
    All new suspension links
    all new brake pads
    Brand new Audi concert radio(with modified volume control-common fault)
    Brand new audi cd changer
    new engine mounts(inc snub mount)
    full stainless cobra exhaust system
    K&N induction kit
    private plate included
    chrome wing mirrors
    new alternator
    tinted windows
    Tax til end of march 2010
    test till oct 1st 2010

    Bad points
    passenger door has slight damage as seen in picture, in my opinion, good clean paint work for a 10 year old car.

    Will be sad to see her go, and of corse please dont be afraid to ask any questions about the car, i will be glad to answer upon request, HPI welcome first to see will buy.
    Thanks for looking

    Is the private plate anything of interest as it is not shown on the advert, unless I am a blind northern numpty who missed it?

    Had this kinda trouble when i sold my last car a few month back. Lots of phone calls etc, trying to haggle a price over the phone, then the few that came to look tried the "it isnt wot i thought etc etc" but then still tried making offers about a grand less!!!:tocktock:

    Just stood my ground, reasonable guy eventually appeared and we struck a deal, good times.

    People seem to take the urine at the min with recession, think that they can name the price they want and you'll crumble! Ive never had trouble selling a car before as i usually price them accordingly and dont own a bad car, just be prepared for some ****, but there is still genuine buyers out there!

    Exactly,my car is priced cheap because of the damage on the door but mechanically its perfect.Had one guy ring up a few days ago offerring me a rediculous price,he got the face on when i said i would rather break it up for bits and get more than he was offerring??
    After all,i am not desperate to sell,if it doesnt sell i will put it in my workshop and store it till somebody does want it(and if older Audi prices are anything to go by,it will only get more expensive?).Have got a guy on another forum seriously interested but he has a car to sell before he can buy mine.I would rather a enthusiast buy it that will appreciate what he's got?

    Good call mate, thats exactly wot i done, kept it garaged and just left the ads running with no hurry to sell.

    Only problem with that is everytime you see it, you end up wanna keep it again!!!:uhm:

    Yeah, I daren't even DRIVE mine incase I start getting sentimental again.

    I keep thinking I should take my wee boys out in it for one last blast (they love the car), but we'd just end up getting too attached to it.

    I'm buying a late 2000 facelift BMW M5 off a friend in the village.

    I just can't the V8 noise out of my head (it has a H&S custom system on it).

    Yeah, I'll get some pictures up when I've cleaned it. It's abssssssssssolutely FILTHY!!!.....but I've told him not to clean it as I'm one of those sickos who likes to 'get at it' and transform it.

    It's in Le Mans Blue, Comms Pack (TV/phone/satnav/dvd etc), black leather, private M5 plates, stainless system, memory seats, folding mirrors etc.

    Very high motorway mileage, but serviced to death and VERY VERY cheap ;) Worth a small fortune in parts if it blew up tomorrow lol

    I didnt think they worked either but we came out of the pub after our dinner on sunday to find a pair of legs stuck out from under neath(despite 2" of snow!!).The guy was a bit of a second hand car dealer but didnt even try to haggle on the price:sign_omg:)
    Yep,hopefully if the new business takes off i will be back but in a RS6 avant:hubbahubba:(got to think-practical:whistle2:) till then its back to my rangerover
