    i m paying for my A3 on a lease audi solutions ... or something

    its coming to the end of the 3 year term and now have to decide on what to do
    i can either ..... use the car as trade in against a new 1
    pay a lump sum off £5xxx
    or just walk away

    the car is a september 2001 so will be 4 years old by the time it comes to decide
    i know it not the flying machine of lots in here and it is as it comes out of the factory
    1. 6 se, 44k miles (that part isnt out the factory)

    im sure the car is worth more than the £5xxx they need off me, so i then have another
    option of buy it then sell privately for 'profit' ..... well it would pay for the interest i have
    paid over 3 years.... so not really profit

    any ideas to help me decide?

    It all depends on whether you want the hassle of selling the car. You may struggle to sell it. I would advertise it for a couple of weeks before the contract ends and if you have no interest just hand it back to them.

    There are some on Autotrader for £7K+

    Any 'profit' is a bonus.

    JPDA3, have the dealer said what trade-in value the car is worth?
