    Don't part ex it at an Audi dealership, they'll break your heart.

    As much as it's a beautiful car, I just don't think a pre-facelift car of that age is going to hit the high end value as the market isn't as buoyant as it was. I've seen a lot of 8P2's getting reduced week after week in our classifieds. I think the lower end of that scale is more likely to shift it if you are serious about selling.

    I found this similar spec face lift 2009 Sportback Quattro with newer 2.0TFSi engine + S-Tronic and 39k miles for £16.3k at indy dealer, Audi dealer is about £3k more. All with FSH.
    Kind of difficult to price your car accurately because of the 'special' mods it has..

    Love your car Brough, but if I'm honest stage 2+ would put me off.

    As a potential buyer one might assume its been driven hard.

    It's ironic isn't it that most people drive their cars like they mean it at some point during the ownership window, yet they choose to think twice about buying from someone with modifications on a car (that they'd do themselves anyway!). Unmodified cars get driven hard too!

    I would rather buy a Stage 2+ car as that way I know it's most likely been looked after by an enthusiast and not some company car driver who doesn't give a monkeys about the car.

    I agree 100% Warren, i think its just the uncertainty.

    If mine had been modded when i was looking, I'd have moved onto the next one.

    I don't want to take the risk it's been modded by a drug dealing chav rather than an enthusiast.

    I guess if you see the cars history on a build thread it helps you see the investment of effort / quality of workmanship etc.

    That said, I've known people who are hugely insensitive drivers who don't modify and thrash cars from cold, ride clutches and drive digitally putting huge wear and tear on everything. It's why I pay over the odds to buy new and remove the unknown, but you can still get a lemon from factory!

    I can see your point but i always look after my cars and its lucky if ive done 2000 miles since the mods were put on as you can tell by the mileage i dont do many a year. I do about 12 miles a day going to work and back and always warmed up etc. But like you say if its been done right (which it has) rather than a chav just turning up the boost.
