Basically i need to sell my Audi A4. Was considering a part ex at a dealer for something more sellable. However i don't think it will work at a dealer as they won't offer me the asking value for my car so i would end up part exchanging it for a car worth around 2K and not 4.5K therefore not making enough on selling the new motor?? Correct??

I think this is what will happen. Need to part exchange for a car worth 3k plus cash or straight swap for something worth the same.

Best selling it privately.. thought they were quite a popular car to sell?! If not part ex for something you do want... Or advertise as a straight swap on some forums... or try do sell on Audi sites/forums... What engine is it?

Well, they seemed popular until i decided to sell. Now no one seems to want it. Only got 61k on it for an N reg. Its a 1.8T. I've tried the audi forums, autotrader twice, exchange and mart, local newspapers, this forum, vw forums.

I have a corsa that i'm driving around in. Basically the audi needs to go as i need the money for investment.

You'll get trade value for it mate, so the dealer can sell it on at a truer value with a profit on it. At the end of the day, theyre there to make money, so wont offer u loadsa money for ur car,unless theyve got plenty of profit in the asking price of the car ur looking at.

Trade in values suck.

TBH a car like that won't sell with all that exposure, hances are its over priced.

It all depends on what car your are going for and the price. I took my 106 to Lookers and the bird (damm sexy bird ) said if i was to buy a new car then they would give me 2,500 for my car but if i was to buy one with delivery Mileage then it would be 1,200.

Saving up now for the next 12 months for a BRAND NEW car
