    PhilM81 Quattro, bring on the SNOW!

    Gents and Ladies,

    Got myself a new job (starting in July, currently on notice), and the company car policy states 4door diesel cars, thus my 3dr may have to go... (not sure how strict they will be!).

    Only had it since Dec'11 and spent a good amount getting it to a sound condition.

    I have searched on the Autotrader to get a value but cant find many 3dr diesel s-line quattro's about. Thus I have come to the experts... YOU!

    Cant be too much help but before I went for a new one I was looking at 2007 black ed A3 170's and they were a lot more than £10k, around £16k at least.

    are you sure mate? 16k sounds like 8P3 money!

    here are some other 3 door examples. yes they do not match the same spec but it gives you a rough idea of a price bracket, the 8P3 at £14k and the lower mileage 8P2 at £12k

    Quicks Sunderland : AUDI A3 2.0 TDI Sport 3dr

    Belgrave Motor Company : Audi A3 TDI S Line

    here is one from Auto trader - 3dr s-line 170

    AUDI A3 2.0 TDI 170 S LINE 3DR S TRONIC Hatchback for sale in Dalkeith | Auto Trader

    just trying to give you a rough price... looks like £11k-£12k

    Can't find the Exclusive on CAP, but the 170 Q S-line retails at £10,595. A dealer will add on a bit for the sat nav etc, but probably won't pay extra for it. If you traded it in, expect c£9k. As suggested, you should sell off the wheels and lights separately tho.

    I'd say that was priced about right, and it's a nice looking car!

    I would say its because it priced too high, 6 months ago I sold my ibis white a3 s line 57 reg, 2.0 Tfsi s-tronic 47k miles, FSH fully loaded with nav, Bose, two tone leather, xenons, ect and it had also had the 2011 s3 facelift and I only sold that for £11k. HPI clear too.
