    Bought my A4 from Huddersfield Audi with 33k miles on the clock, interest free loan from my parents, paid off 4 years ago now. It owes me nothing, has done 150k miles and is actually making money for me now on company car allowance (even though it needed a new gearbox last year)

    Bought mine from a non Audi trader just over six years after it was first registered with 38,654 miles on the clock. I used cash and a tiny top up from a loan to buy it; I need a new one now but that'll be bought with insurance money (touch wood) and probably more cash than I'd like :(

    Regards,

    Rob.

    Bought mine private from my boss, and paid cash which was borrowed from the bank in the form of a loan! I knew tha car since it came up to the island 6 years ago, so i had no worries buying it.

Got the finance from sainsburys ( freeway Royal Bank of Scotland ) car should have been £30k but got it for £26k my local audi dealer could not believe that the car was uk speck and that a audi dealer could do the car at such a discount ( i do its called intrest on the loan ) Would i go through the process again yes but seeming as i dont like the MK2 TT im stuck for choice

    Proper trade deal. "Old Mouldy" was p/x'ed against a Ford Galaxy and left out the back (way out the back in fact) with the trader wondering how he would get rid / dump it. My pal came to it's rescue when he asked what 'Gary Glitters' the trader had in....

    I got mine from Audi approved, whilst p/xing a BMW 3 series I got bored of, and took out a £10k loan also with the said dealer. Wished I done a bit more research before buying though, might have save a grand or two, more of an impulse buy methinks, but I still own it, so can't be bad :)

    Not big enough! Actually most of the cash came from some inheritance which I received earlier in the year.

    Anyone bought privately and wished they had spent a bit more by buying from a dealer? Just asking as I have never bought a car privately before....

    I actually bought from a trader and declined the warranty to get the price down-

    The warranty didn't cover much and I know plenty of useful people, also didn't fancy an hour and a half drive every time I had a knocking noise!

    The price battle literally took over two hours, started to treat it as a bit of a challenge!
