    Bought an 07 reg B7 2.0TDI (140) S-Line today with 19K miles on the clock due to my new job involving commuting 30K miles a year.
    Paid £14,985 for the new one and got £8500 trade in on my 1.8T (190) with 34K on the clock.
    Fairly happy with that deal, do you think it was a fair price?

    It was an 04 plate S-Line that I traded in, it's for sale here:

    http://atsearch.autotrader.co.uk/ww...ry=cars&channel=DEALERPAGE&id=200928337823426

    Main website is here: www.grantspecialistcars.co.uk/

    I've still got the car until Tuesday night. Didn't want the hassle of selling it privately and can't be without a car due to my job so wanted a direct swap.

    It's not a quattro and the only option it has is the interior light pack where you get the red led lights by the interior light that cast a red light down on the centre console at night, lights in the door handles and footwell lights. I think this was an option but it may have been standard.

    Parkers guide price is based on 50k miles, but is only £7k!!

    Dealer prices for them to sell it on should be around:

    Franchised Dealer £8,895 Independent Dealer £8,645
    (again, based on 50k)

    I'm guessing he's just had some good experience with turning around low mileage S-Line's in good time: it's a nice colour too, so should sell pretty easilly.

    edit: in summary - you got a pretty good deal....

    ah - is that an Auto/Multitronic? If so, then he seems to be a bit closer to guide prices... but still a good deal.

    And here's the guide price for a B7 07-plate 2.0 TDI 140PS:

    Just thought I'd look that up in case he was being generous withthe trade in and then taking it back with the sale.... but it wouold appear not! Seems like a decent deal all around!

    Now you just need to run the diesel car on chip-fat and you're laughing!!

    Yes I was waiting for him to offer around £7K or just under so was taken by surprise a bit when he said £8500.

    ps. No multitronic, new car and old car are both 6 speed manual.

    sounds like you got a good deal then.... maybe he just figured that the market for <£10k cars was moving faster than the newer cars.... probably find he'd had a few enquiries from people saying "I like that one, but I don't do enough mileage to need a new TDI, would rather pay less and get a slightly older petrol", etc, etc.... you never know!

    Nice :salute: Good to see someone get a good deal from a dealer for a change rather than vice versa!
