    Hi all

    I currently have a 2002 A4 130 TDI and have decided after 30 months that i will change it. Earlier today I was passing my local VW main dealer and spotted a rather stunning A3 sportback.

    2006/56 A3 170 Quattro S-line
    5 door
    Manual
    17,234 miles
    black
    Privacy glass
    18" 5 arm wheels
    Half Leather black/black

    this car looks like it has just come out of the show roo inside and out i have only spotted three things: -

    Two of the P-zero tyres are just on the 2mm bar
    one of the tyres is new but is made by 'full run' or 'full speed'? It is new though.
    the bottom of the near side front wing curls round under the car, but it looks like it has been caught slightly underneath and is 5mm out of line at the join with the cill. only obvious if you are really picky.

    they have it on there forecourt for £15,995 my first attempt to get him down was answered by 'well if we don't get 15,995 we will just put it onto there Audi court (next door) at a higher price' cant seem to find any in autotrader for as low as this one.

    any advice on this car and price would be really apreceiated especially anything about the DPF.


    thank you

    toby (anyone want to buy a 2002 A4 130 18" alloys and tints) samuel

    The salesman you spoke to sounds like a right tool. The car and spec sound good, used cars are struggling at the minute and if the Audi garage next door wanted the car on stock it would already be there full stop. Get negotiating, new tyres on the front and at least 7/8 % off the asking price if no trade in, don't ask the salesman just offer £14,500 as a starting point and work your way up, good luck.

    yeah I 2nd that the salesmen is full of himself & a TOOL with capital T, just go in low & say you've seen a few from other dealers for better deals & you're ready to deal but not at that price as its to high, ask if he wants a deal today or a car sitting there gaining dust, just say you havnt got time to psych salesmen out if he be's bit more realistic given the economic climate then he might have a deal, obviously this guy hasnt read the papers or news on finances at moment, lol, lol, he should count himself lucky fella.
