Not an R32 ....

So - this will be my 3rd of this car type of car, although my first of this exact type ....and my second of these cars with this engine, although it will the 3rd time i’ve had this engine from this marque

It’s a 2012 car ... and I am very very pleased with it, although come the spring I might end up selling it for the next step up again.

Spec includes leather seats (black you’ll be pleased to hear) and BOSE stereo.

An A3 with, 3.2 V6?


No, thinking about it don't think the V6 has a turbo.... Maybe a 2l Turbo A3 then.

Correct - great engine actually ...

Between you, you are almost there - but missing 1 ingredient !!!

It’s actually a lovely car - but it is a stepping stone, and I suspect you won’t be begging me for a drive.

Tom is correct.

Not my mums, she has the new shape, Darling .....

Yep, so I paid £7300 for it ... he was offered £7200 as a trade in, so looked like a deal to me ...

Small clean up, and in spring I’ll get £8750 for it, mark my words !!

A3 (diesel) should be on Autotrader later today - good car if anyone wants it ...

Yep. Thats a good price. I went it quite low at £7k as i know you can be quite the dealsmith.

Good going and yes, when the sun starts coming out next year you'll be able to ask that kind of price.

But lets be honest....what will you be able to ask when the sun comes out next week? Cos that's when you'll be selling it!!!!!

Hows this for a deal - I'll take the A3 diesel off your hands.

I'll spend what it takes to get me to a train(s) on yours..and then i'll have the return fuel costs to think about.

A bed for the night (FOC) would be great but i dont want to impose too much.

TBH - I never set out to buy an A3 convertible, just the best deal out there at this time. Assuming I get £4000 for mine A3D - another £3000(ish) has got me a whole long way up the ladder.

Having said that, its got a lot going for it .. it drives, feels, and gives that Audi feel good factor - respectable enough to pull up at the good houses at work, and not too good that I worry where I park it - small enough to park around town - roof down moments - and the 1.8T is alright ... but the image isn't quite right.

Moreover, they always sell, and genuinely the cheapest cars out there that come close to this one are currently £9000+ ...... not sure I can keep doing it though, the adverts, tax, insurance, etc, is all a pain in da arse, but if I can pocket a few quid from a few cars, I can eventually jump in to something nice(r).

Time for a fresh car count - its spiraling.

Fiat Uno
Volvo 340
Fiat Punto
Alfa Romeo 147
Audi TT
Lotus Elise
Audi A3 3.2 Quattro
Mini Cooper
Mini Cooper S
BMW 1 Series (silver)
BMW 1 Series (blue)
Audi A3 1.8T
Mazda MX5
BMW 330i
Audi A3 2.0tdi
Audi A3 1.8T convertible.
