    Short term ownership
    I'm glad I tried the s4 4.2 v8
    Something I've always wanted and a cabriolet to top it off

    What a car it is for the money, nothing comes close.

    Just wasn't a keeper for me as wanted to concentrate on the main family car and wasn't being used much

    I'll be lurking but for now bye bye s4

    Beautiful car that was, how much did it go for in the end.

    New owner got a bargain I think
    £6.6k
    69k on the clock
    Fuchs titan ester oil
    New rear discs and pads
    Paintwork was silky smooth from clay bar, machine polish and wax

    I don't think its strong money

    Find another or look at the average of s4 cabriolet tiptronic with sub 70k miles

    Mostly traders holding on to these waiting for a buyer at £8k plus!

    Still rather more than WBAC were saying. But yep, always frustrating when your idea of value isnt matched by that of the person buying.

    Looks a really straight and well cared for car, I wouldn't have said that was strong money, compared to what is being asked by the trade for a similar mileage car.

    I'd say it was about spot on, but it's still one hell of a lot of car for that money, but aren't they all (S4's).

    £8k minus 20% VAT = £6,000

    And a dealer would give some form of warranty and guarantee, and I'd certainly be expecting it to have had a full service. The dealers profit would have to be a mimimum of 30% I'd have thought, just to make it worthwhile. Sounds like you got a decent price.

    Fair enough

    Well it's gone now

    Don't think you'll find much better s4 cab tip for that money on that mileage

    I've sold a b6 a4 3.0 quattro with only 27k on the clock, 1 owner from new and full service history for 5k, when you consider that it was 2 times less mileage, really good condition inside and out and fully serviced with a new cambelt fitted as well then you will know what i mean... 6+k for a similar car with a even larger engine, over double the mileage and potential big money bills looming round the corner it defies belief... As i said, good it went in the end...

    Brilliant car it was as I said

    But £8k less vat is £6.67k not £6k

    As for the 3.0 version, it doesn't have the "s" icon so not really comparable

    Yeh.My bad. Maths and typing. I meant to type £6.6k. Either way, you've got the funds you needed for the family diesel wagon, and managed to shift the car after a bit longer than you wanted, albeit for less than you think it's was worth. Buyers market though, for something as specialised as that I've have thought.
