    H,i with that milliage i would say £5500-6000 trouble with all the extras is you will only command more if they were fitted as standard or someone is willing to pay for them,it will however put it ay an advantage to say a bog standard one about the same age,milliage ect, love the gear knob by the way, dose it have the correct gear positions on the top? is it a b5 one?

    Good luck with the sale i would just think of a price i want advertise it and see how you go,

    Whats next then?

    Yeah I know this is why I am loathed to just trade it in, unless I put it back to standard and sell off the parts seperatly.

    The gear knob has the correct gear positions on the top, bloody cold in winter !

    Not sure yet been looking at B7's and BMW 330D's!

    I was going to sell mine a while ago, but because I was only getting offers around what I could trade it in for I decided to keep mine as it wasn't worth selling for what people were willing to pay.
    It was worth a lot more to me. I was very disappointed at what it was actually worth TBH

    If it were me i would go this way:

    Find a car you want and see what they offer you for a trade in or if private the best deal you can get, revert the A4 back to standard and sell all the goodies seperate, you will get good money for them as they are all desirable mod's, as for the new one the B7 hasen't grown on me yet and my brother-in-law has a BMW 330d on a 54 plate, nice car looks good but as he says drinks diesel for fun!

    If you decide to sell and revert to standard i'll have the gear knob off you as i am looking at a perfarated steering wheel and it would be nict for it to match, if not i'll just have to put my hand in my pocket a buy na new one,
    Was it a B5 rs4 one or a b7?

    Hi,

    If you do decide to put it back to standard, I will be intrested in the RNS-E.

    All the best with the sale.

    Did you manage to sort the boot out?

    I must admit I've kept everything so that I can return the car to standard to sell, (except the black lower grille). I think it both makes the car more saleable to the 99% of motorists who aren't enthusiasts like us! And also the mod's will be worth more sold individually than they will collectively add to the car.

    What B7's are you looking at specifically?

    Got any pictures of the seats? Is that tuning box specific to the 1.9 TDi or can it be used on the 2.5TDi?
