Of course I could just hand in the plates and cancel the insurance , then let the car sit and rot. But not good for the car.

Good morning Sean - perhaps some more details about the car and the anticipated price range would help. Do you have photos?
Now is not a good time to sell so perhaps even just put it away for 6 months or so until, hopefully, the market improves?
Regards,
Brian

Ok cool.
Didn’t know we could / should do this here.

But I guess it’s difficult times.

Sean,
Yes more info please and pics.
I will pass it onto all my contacts.

Thanks Brian....Classic in White... value perhaps in the low teens ?
Cancelling the Rego can be a pain... but a 90% refund on the Insurance could be achieved as the car is in a locked garage allways. Food for thought.

Gentlemen,
Prices are in freefall so be warned you may be disappointed if you want to sell. Unless it is absolutely necessary to sell now, you may find it worth waiting for 12 to 18 months. It is only my opinion of course and I could be wrong but I fear not.
Regards,
Brian

I fully agree with you Brian.
Nothing is selling at the moment.

Itís listed for free on gumtree, so it may as well just sit there in case someone is looking, and has a few spare $$$.

Prior to this I have never taken much notice of the A3 drophead but on carsales there are some relatively low mileage examples at quite attractive prices. And some with a manual box. One might find a bargain.
Regards,
Brian

It may end well as Daughter Cathy is interested for her Daughter Sarah, third Year Medical Science Student at Sydney Uni. A far better choice, as a lot of Parents put their children ib dreadful death traps. We'll see.

That would be a terrific result Sean.
She would love drivingbin a very safe car like that.

Brian,
A really nice car to drive with that typical Audi build quality.
Very sporty, and mine which has the 1.8 TFSI is very quick, and very economical as well.

The 2.0L is a licence loser, very very quick car.

Just be sure you check the Takata airbag site, as a lot of Audi of this vintage were effected.
Also be sure a recent recall has been done regarding a pressure regulator in its dual clutch transmission.
If you find a manual, then no issue

Great model S2 Brian.

I know you like a manual, as do I, but the 7 speed DSG with paddle shifters is pretty fun.

Cool Re: surplus to requirements

All is well . we have given the C Class to our Granddaughter. She will now be relatively safe on the Roads ! As she can't conduct her full Licence Test at this time, so we will keep the car in our locked Garage and cancel the Comp. Ins.
