    Yeah? Seen newer for alot less but I guess it's due to all the toys and mileage.

    Nothing said about cambelt though...

    That is a fit car!!! What are the wheels on it? They look like B5 RS4 reps, but don't dish inwards though. Picture here.

    Does seem a tad expensive though, but as mentioned it has indeed got every toy it seems, apart from RNS-E.

    Wow!
    With that spec and mileage, I don't think the price is OTT.
    Nice cars with all the extras, and low mileage, are going to bring more than a high mileage, low spec car.
    If I were in the market for my next QS, that would probably be the car.
    Go for it!!!!

    it's pricey, but certainly not silly money... £5.2k for a "Good Private" standard spec 2003 52 plate 3.0 Avant on 70k miles... whoops - £5.5.k from an indy dealer.

    it's got all the upgrades that are tough/impossible to do as PROPER OEM jobs (BOSE, proper factory Xenon's, heated leather, sunroof)... RNS-E is a relatively easy upgrade compared to those!

    Quotes vary: the Audi special on at the moment (£475) does NOT cover this car... 4 cylinder model only :(

    I've hunted around and to get my (V6 2.5TDI Quattro) done, for cambelt + waterpump inc parts, labour and VAT at an Audi dealership is anything from £713-£1175... not sure if you need to do the waterpump on the V6 petrol, but that was about £80 of the lowest quote: need to ask for the 5yr+ discount.

    Yep....looks good to me....especially if its getting the cambelt done...

    Check the tyres though....I get around 15K miles out of my 2.5TDi Q Sport and st £150 a corner getting a set of 4 decent tyres is not cheap (if its got 18" rims it should be on 235 40 ZR 18's)

    It's a nice looking car, and if he's going to do the cambelt and maybe budge on the price it would be a favourable deal.

    Thats a very good point, and hard to put a price on. You could wait years to find another one with all these options.

    Its got all the extras I want but thought i'd never get in one car so seems to good to be true. Maybe good things do come to those that wait?...

    Added them up and when bought the extras would of cost just over £6k!

    Looks really nice. I agree, a little pricey perhaps, but as said, finding one as fully loaded as that could be difficult. I like it a lot.

    Another thing I've noticed is the rear bumper looks meshed? Not normally like that are they?

    If it helps mine has basically the identical spec although it is a saloon, bought it last year in November for a bit over £7k....one thing with mine it had only done 29k miles (!) and looked like it had just come from the showroom. I am still happy that I paid a fair price as while the price was getting close to B7 models they all had huge mileage and were not even close to being as well specced.

    As above haggle and you might pick up a top motor.

    Its got an aftermarket front on it, I don't recognise it (ABT?) - but some like J7USS will be able to ID it for you. The rear looks like a Votex one, but it's a bit hard to tell.

    Looks good, i would say a fair price, i have just paid £9.5k from a dealer for my 2004 3.0 QS, but to be fair it only has 32k miles, is mint and has all the toys including s4 recaro front and rear seats which i have never seen before :)

    Only point i would make is that they are not the usual QS bumpers as above and it is missing the door blades (but has skirts instead) Nice looking car though :thumbsup:

    Good luck with with the buy.

    Front is ABT and I think the rear might be too - front was probably Audi dealer fit... they used to be Audi options!

    Just don't crack it... I think even Audi don't do the spares any more!

    Phoned him today expecting it to be ready for a viewing to find out he sold it on Friday?... HUH!!

    So when he said it wont be ready until Monday what he really meant was come anytime and buy it... Not amused or very happy
