3 door in black,

long mot and 3 months tax,

decent tyres all round alloys mint except one little scuff,

interior mint,

runs great,

remapped by rapidremaps(not too fierce but pulls like a train),

miltek turbo back exhaust,

lowered 45mm, springs only,

had common faulty throttle body replaced,

112k miles atm, with full audi service history,

its got dual climate control,

leather seats heated in front,

sport pack, sil protectors etc,

2 keys,

lots of reciepts,

not forced to sell just want to get a bike before summer gets here and the prices shoot up!!

anyone any idea of what sort of price i should be looking for on it been offered a reasonable price from a dealer but not sure wether to let him have it or try it on the open market!!

What year is she gav? I bet it's bitter sweet after doing so much to her! What type of a4 are you looking for? Ps, on the a4 rear folding seats were a ?150 extra, so without they aren't too roomy.

Its true the A3 is fast but its not that fast. You will have it all to do again with the a4! Be interesting to see what you make of them to drive.

hopefully lol, thinking of selling the wifes mazda so she can use the a4 in summer and buy me an older motor for winter. so not got her mazda or a nice a4 sat on drive all summer! i think 170 from a 100hp petrol should keep her happy for a while

hmmm never gave them a thought. think il be aiming around 3-4k for a old motor for me and prob 6-7 for an a4 which should leave 3-4 for me to get bike do test buy new helmet and leathers and insure!! cant wait now for summer to get here!!

Its along way from the weather outside the window right now! maybe its just me but ive always had something about them. Had a spin ages ago in a silver one, was quick and the leather really nicely kept.

Gtis would come in around that money too wouldnt they. Think my missus would be scared out of her wits if she saw me getting onto a bike!

Thats the thing, maybe try a quick sale ad, and see if someone wants to buy it. Im not up on car prices to be honest so i couldnt say if it is good or bad, but private is normally more. Could be worth a grand to you?

Especially as it's a spotless example with alot of work done on it.
No harm putting it on eBay for that kind of money, even over on mkivs, there's always people that hop over to audis and would appreciate the work done

Nooooo, don't do it! [:D]

Price wise, I wouldn't have a clue but, looking at those pics, it'll be snapped up. I suppose the price depends on how keen you are on the bike!
