    9.5-10K's a good estimate.

    I'd turn up at your door with 10K in cash FULLY expecting to walk away with only having paid 9K.

    Just remember, your mods have de-valued the car, not added to it.

    Did you read what Chris said?

    Modification devalue the car, as people will assume its been thrased.

    Personally, I'd buy a car that I knew had been tracked, and tracked hard, but I wouldnt touch a car If I thought a traffic light grand prix merchant had owned it.

    The Audi service history is worth a few quid tho.


    Never ever expect to get back what you have put in unless you got the car at a bargain price.

    Have you had the car on VAG-COM? First thing I do when looking at a car is turn up, plug VAG-COM in, tells me if I need to continue looking....

    If there's 10k on the table, grab it and throw the keys at him. It is a very good price.

    I agree a 6 year old + car that cost about 20k new..? 10k is a good offer, only lost 50% of its value in 6 years!! pretty darned good IMO

    Have to agree.. I mean I brought a W-Reg TT off family 2 years ago, ok I got it cheap at 10k.. Mint Car with low mileage.. 2 years later I sold it for the same price.. Take the money and go.. My S3 is a 51 plate with roughly the same mileage.. If someone offered me 10k for it I`d snap there hand off..

    id say put it up for 10 and you may get a sale, 9.5 should get you a sale, 9 if you want rid.

    I paid £10.7k for my 2002 51 plate s3 with 48k a couple of months ago

    I'd agree with the 9k figure to a certain extent. I was thinking of selling mine a bit back, a year older but with less miles, full audi service history, cam belt, water pump and tensioners, All the options, blah, blah, blah. I was going to put it up at 9.5k but decided I would have taken 8.5k.
    IMHO if you sell it to a friend for 10k don't expect him to be a friend for long! ;)
