    Well it comes the time in everyones life, when they say goodbye..... to their beloved..... car!

    Im selling my A3, currently have it on PistonHeads, Auto Trader and Ebay.

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2001-AUDI-A3-...39:1|66:2|65:12|240:1318&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

    Im hoping it will go pretty sharpish as i have a Golf GTI im after! Im only selling it as ive just moved house, and have more important things to sort out and the car is costing me a small fortune in insurance (the 150bhp golf gti is £600 a year less on insurance!!!!)

    Still got my TT however, as the missus uses that and its a good weekend car.

    I am willing to px with cash my way, for a black/dark blue Golf GTI preferable 3 door.

    Let me know.

    jesus man, how much do you pay on insurange?

    I was 21 at my last renweal (now 22) and only paid £700 on by 230bhp ko3S 1.8T.

    for there to be that much difference, you must be getting raped!

    Personally, I think it's a bad choice. Having spent time in both cars, I think the A3 is the better of the two!

    Im 23 nearly 24, but i have 0 no claims due to having a lot of troubles in previous jobs and never holding a car down long enough to accumulate NCB :)

    Hence the reason my insurance is so high, although on the TT it is in fact cheaper (god knows how). Plus 4wd, 270ish bhp and some serious pulling power compared to a 150bhp A3, theres no thought in the matter for me; although dont get me wrong, the A3 is a fantastic car!

    how can you do that?

    If you've got no reserve price I didn't think you were allowed to end the auction within the last 12 hours providing bids had been placed?

    Best of luck to you mate! I know how hard it is selling cars at the moment, I've been trying to sell my m3 for weeks!

    its not the best time to be selling cars but if your serious about selling it,i wouldnt waste your time or money with ebay (to many messers on there)
    id put it on autotrader and also pistonheads as its free
