Finally got an okay price from a dealer - ?17.5k.

It's been a great car but it's became a liability after it was vandalised twice.

Will probably not be VWing for a while as I think the rest of their modern range (mk5 GTi excepted but it's way too pricey) is pretty unimpressive to drive and overpriced.

May be back when we get secure parking and the Mk5 R is out though!

Another R owner bited the dust. I was offered 17k for mine by a dealer six months ago so you did well to get that price now.

Interestingly I did manage to get an even better price although getting beyond ?19k was pretty difficult from a dealer. On the R there are very good cars to be had for ?19k....basically take your pick its a buyers market[;)]. Don't throw money at the dealers because most if not all R's are still under manufacturers warranty[!]

What you got your eye on next then? Was it a A3 TDI?

Are you sure your not confusing him with me? I've just got shot of my R for an Audi A3...

I think you made the right decision selling the R32.

I know you are after something discreet; check this monster out:

http://www.fontain.co.uk/vehicle-details.asp?region=&order=&Model=844&Make=&BodyType=&FuelType=&Transmission=&intMin=&intMax=&RSpage=1&ID=38075

What a bargain! I know it has high miles, but providing it's been serviced regularly [which I'm sure it has], you could pick up an extended warranty, remove the S4 badges and I'm sure no-one would be none the wiser about what it was.... [^] I've always wanted a B6 S4 Avant, but the image of a 25 year old driving about an estate put me off [stupid I know] - I think they are stunning. It meets everything you need [cargo space, versatility, stealth looks, performance].

Hmmm.. wonder if Fontain would give me ?13k for my 50k Anni? [/wishful_thinking]

Indeed wishful thinking[;)], as Fontain only sell Audi they will simply ring around dealerships and see what offers they can get for your car......so in that case better if you do the investigation as you'll get a better price. Good luck

Sad day, probably the wise decision, but its unfair that you have been forced to do this because of people who dont show respect for anyone elses property.

A guy has just got a brand new M3 on my road and parks it there every night.

I'm just waiting for it to be done over - Poor bloke!

I got my wheels nicked in cotham, was very depressing. After that i have had 3 different brands of locking wheel nuts on each wheel and don't take my car to bristol any more. thieving scum if i had caught them, i would have taught them what the criminal system should be like.
