2018 Plate Audi A3 S Line Won't Sell

Hi Gents, 

Could really do with some advice. 

I am part time trader selling 2-3 cars a month from home. I recently brought a black 2018 A3 Sportback 1.5 S line Auto with 14k miles on the clock. Lovely car a grade 1 from BCA Paddock Wood. I paid Cap Clean £18,400 plus commission totaling £18,800 on a gold account. So it owes me near 19k. I have had it on Autotrader for 3 weeks now with no interest at all. Priced it at £19,500 initially now dropped to £18,950 as Audi are selling the same car at £19,500 - £20,000 tops. I have had no phone calls after a massive price drop. I am worried that I'll never sell it with Brexit around the corner! Please help lol 

Oh dear.

Are you selling finance? If not it needs to be very cheap.

Even if you are, I bet joe public can walk into Audi and get either a new or pre reg car for lower monthly’s than what you could give them. 

I had a similar scenario when I was fresh and naïve, 24 month old MB C Class coupe. Monthly’s for a pre reg from MB were less than what I could sell out at. Luckily a friend of mine SOR’d it in his show room and returned me a profit. Maybe you know someone that could do that?

Thanks to all for there comments. Yes I admit paid to much for the car. But that's life I have learnt from this. Worse case for me I'll just keep the car for myself if it doesn't sell. Thanks everyone

Hope you don't take that approach with every car that hasn't sold as quickly as you'd like!! 

You'll need a driveway the size of your local Tesco car park!!

And a lot of money :lol:

ps If @Rory RSC and @Mark101 cock on you. I have £14k for it!! :ph34r:

Offers there, or if you want me to sell it and give you a £100 back for it from my pitch I don't mind doing an SOR.

Rory can often be found at his local orphanage handing out toys and sweets. When he isn’t helping old dears across the road.

Probably best to put it back through the auction you might get more than what you paid for it putting it through privately

You may? You mean you're shitting bricks hoping he's serious because it's your one chance of getting that money back in one piece and not have to concede to driving a 1.5 Audi everywhere. You may take him up :lol:

If you do sell it please let me know as I can help you with some more Vat Q ones!  

Trust me, unless you have 4 rings over the door you will struggle unless you are 15% off the cheapest Audi main dealer.

£18,000 - one Audi A3

£5000 = four cars

£1800 = 10 motors

£180 = 100 bangers from a variety of vendors

Rather buy 100 bangers make £150 = £15k 

Quick cash :lol:

I've got a mint Golf at £9k and I don't think I'm going to sell that easily from home and with no finance. Let alone £18k

Plus spending £18k to make £500??
