    do a comparison on like auto trader (its only worth what someone is prepared to pay), dont get me wrong we all think our cars are mint but the buyer will always find a fault it really depends how you advertise, present and sell the car at the time, I think if you make it look as good as you can that will help and have the supporting evidence of all work carried out on the car, dont try to over sell it as this can put peeps off.

    good luck

    ps going by the pics im sure the car is a gooden, im not judging as I think my car is the best, after spending and correcting the faults with her hehe

    what are the extras/mods?

    manual5 / manual6 / auto? (click each for the Parker's link)

    You'll get an idea on PARKERS and AUTOTRADER (if anything Parkers tend to slightly under-quote and Autotrader has some crazy-dreamers after >2x what it's worth).

    Parkers average of a good condition, avg spec, private sale (based on 70k miles) seems to be just under £5k.

    Yours is half the average mileage, so will probably go for more than that, but no crazy extras, so probably not that much more.

    From Autroder: there's a similar mileage TipTronic Avant (both of those push the price up) that's asking £6250 as a private sale (LINK), a Tiptronic Saloon (avg mileage, but newer and has sunroof, satnav, etc) asking on a trade sale £6995 (LINK) and a Manual Convertible trade sale asking £7990, older, but on similar mileage (very poorly advertised*!!) (LINK).

    *No photo's, etc and he's listed all the factory standard stuff (like airbags, locking wheel nuts and ABS), but also mentioned headlight washers, which means it has Xenons (which are not mentioned!) - points at it being a trade-in that's well below his forecourt avg and he's just looking to get rid of and he couldn't give a toss about the sale.

    Wow im quite impressed with your post m8 ,thanks very much mine has 6 speed box ,full leather,park assist,dual climate,the mirror covers and alu look interior parts,i would have thought 6500 was nearer the right price going by the mileage and condition but then thats why ive started the thread as ive no clue about the audis just know they have good resale values

    alu-trim won't add much, full leather is common on the 3.0's (but still nice!) and dual climate was standard on B6's: what will push you above the guide prices are low mileage and less common extras (like parking sensors).

    that Whatcat price is mileage adjusted: more importantly on the whatcar site is the price for avg (70k) mileage: £6,150 vs £4800-ish on Parkers!

    tbh, if you're in no rush at all, then you can have a fish for just over £7k, but looking for £6000-£6500 is probably pretty realistic once you adjust for (and allow some time to find somebody who is willing to pay a little extra for) low mileage and parking sensors - the latter is the sort of mod that some demographics will pay a bit extra for if that's what they want - only prob is that those are the sort of people who would be put off by retro-fitted s-line badges and aluminium wing-mirror covers.

    <£200 will sort out that scratch on the arch professionally - might be worth it if you're going for the "mint" premium end of the market.

    and £6k is a pretty serious resale value for a 8yr old car... my dad had a 2.5 V6 Vauxhaul Omega CDX (a FEW years ago) that dropped from about £28k to <£7k in 4yrs!

    Vauxhaul = Opel, so it is German.... but agreed it's NOT a premium brand, Audi's, Merc's and BMW's are just in a different class of holding their values to non-premium brands: Vauxhauls, Fords, etc drop their value FAST... and don't even get me started on the French cars!!

    I only mentioned the Vauxhaul as a comparison for how other brands hold their value versus the Audi's: I wasn't comparing them as cars at ALL.... I'd take a 7yr old Audi over a 3yr old Renault or Vauhaull every time!! Fact is they'd probably feel the same age - my car feels so much tighter and looks so much smarter compared to a friend's 2005 Ford Focus (so it's half the age of mine and has done a quarter of the mileage).
