    pretty much the same spec as mine except the coilovers and 19inch

    mine worth between 5k-6k depending on condition
    i reckon its worth roughly the same but there not many people who will pay extra for the mods you have carried out

    are you actually thinking about selling it?

    I am not saying there is anything wrong with your car but you have three big problems if you want to sale it.
    1 ) It`s modified
    2 ) It`s done over 100,000 miles which on a modern diesel is nothing but it`s still a big thing to a lot of people no matter how well maintained.
    3 ) The secondhand car market is flooded so people can pick and choose.

    Is it an S-line? as i thought they were only available with dsg or quattro at that age.

    Looking at glass's guide I reckon for it to sell you need to be at around £6-6.5k and thats if the mods dont put people off.

    Too be fair though money on mods you near enough never get the cash back from.

    Got to make sure you reap the rewards while you have it...

    $orry about the "$" - the "s" key ha$ gone funny on thi$ laptop lol

    Where about$ are you ?

    You would be better off $elling the mod$ $eperately and thi$ would al$o make the car more ea$ier to $ell.

    Id $ay around 8k tbh but down $outh, car$ seem to be cheaper.

    Look$ nice though :D

    Your vehicle has a trade in value of £5700. This value does not take into account any mods or optional extras.

    Value is for 2004 04 Audi A3 Diesel Hatchback Sport 3dr @ 105k
    *Used Sport as S-line trim wasn't available until 2005

    Luke you make me laugh lol!:thumbsup: I'd just try selling it mate im sure some one will be looking for a nice A3 with some nice mods. If not take mods off as few other members said and sell them :) Or see if you can part ex your A3 towards an A4?

    Hope that helps

    An 2005 54 Audi A4 1.8t S-Line 4dr @105k has a trade in value of £5700 (What are the chances) and a suggested retail price of £8095

    Not all doom & gloom if there are some higher mileage examples around...
