So this is where all those cheap lease deals end up, opening up idea of buying where the trade buys !.... These cars would be 16K in dealers but @ £12K + fees in auction and still have 2 years Audi warranty,,,,, and FREE road tax for life.. Car Auctions do sell nearly new cars so much cheaper than dealer forecourt prices and still have full manufacturer remaining warranty. Ideally would buy from non car rental eg Motability, Avon Cosmetics, Charity Fleets etc. Also around 200 go through a Mercedes Benz Financial Services sale.... British Car Auctions (BCA) has BMW sales.

Oh dear ... what I never managed to say is these cars are one year old they still have 2 years of Audi warranty, I bought similar a year ago and any problems were fixed by Audi dealer and gave me a loan A6 and collected car from my home.... All I am saying if you buy a car in A1 condition in manufacturers warranty fully serviced there no reason to pay 3K extra and get if from a dealer....

Audis are for people that cannot afford a Mercedes, generally.

Pretty much as common as a Fiesta on the roads these days.
...and a Merc is an old man's car for someone who isn't ready for a Jag.

Audi's are the more refined VW, a bit more padding than a VW, which has more padding than a Seat, which in turn is a bit more padded than a Skoda. Underneath they're all roughly the same car, just as underneath we're all roughly the same human animal.

​Lol old man's car. Dont watch much touring car racing I take it?
????

So the cheapest is actually £12,400 on a buy it now price and its got 36K miles?

Otherwise you take your chances at auction?
Theres no guarantee at all you'll buy it for £12K.

And FWIW, £12K - £12.5K trade + fees is about right for a car retailing at £16K from a main dealer, so theres no "evidence" here of reduced prices because of the emissions issue.

Its down to making an offer - thing is yes some will be hire cars but all the other dealer including certain main dealers just buy and add to forecourt and Audi don't care... still give you loan car free etc for full warranty cover.

​Of course not, because not enough time has passed for a trend analysis.

However it is common sense to know there has been an impact.
Normally cars like that have been lease cars for company's, and the people that drive them most don't car so they're not always In the best condition engine or physically.

There was a comment in the heading originally that this was an example as "evidence" prices were dropping due to the emissions scandal, but i see this has been removed. It was clearly misleading.

According to CAP black book though impact so far has been minimal if any.

Not sure where you live, but where i do every other car is either an Audi, BMW, Merc or VW...all as equally mundane as a monday morning
Where I work Audi's are like clitoris's lol...

Bought my last car at a BCA Auction, ex-lease hire grade 1 with all the toys and even after auction fees/transportation still saved a couple of thousand over current forecourt prices for the same make/model...

Think you'll find that you're unable to bid on these sales, they are invite only usually and only for brand dealers or specialists.

Yeah, you've just to service the car, replace the worn parts, sort out the paint work, alloys, trim etc and put a warranty onto it and hey presto just as good as the car on the Audi forecourt....

Another typical troll showing how little you know... As I stated car was Grade 1 so NO worn out parts (at under 10k miles I wouldn't expect any either), all bodywork clear, no chips or dents, alloys perfect with plenty wear left in the tyres and as it was just a year old was still under Manufacturers Warranty... All that and STILL cheaper than any on any forecourt in the country, no jog along and TROLL somewhere else...

Typical troll? Over 20 years in the motor trade pal! Buying 2nd hand is nothing like buying from a dealer, yes you might have the same metal parked on the drive but you haven't anything like the same backup and service you would get from a dealer if something goes wrong manufacturer's warranty or not!

Ahhh.... the EXPERT!!! Thats what you are, I'm so sorry for offending the last 20 years of your life doing whatever it is you do in the motor trade, you could be a valet for all I care PAL!!
I put the effort in, with guidance from a friend who IS in the motor trade and has owned his own private dealership for over 30 years and got myself an absolute bargain of a car.. If you are "in the trade", you would know that these ex lease hire auctions are where a hell of a lot of dealers get their stock, which they then sell at market prices on their forecourts, for a profit, they don't do it for fun you know...

Car threads on this site are hillarious. Seems like you're all 100% confident that your opinions are facts, and everyone hates everyone else.

And if you look back moron I already posted that on the thread! They may be the same cars the dealer buys but they are subjected to a full inspection in the workshop prior to sale and that isn't just a wipe round with an oily rag! If you bought your car then took it straight to the audi dealer, asked em for the same inspection and all the same parts replaced (yes even on a 10k mileage car), had all the dints, dents, scratches repaired and any marks on the alloys/glass dealt with and the car valeted then you MIGHT have saved yourself up to £1500 on an identically prepped A3 and you still wouldn't have the 30 day exchange guarantee if you didn't like the car or something was bugging you nor would you have the dealers goodwill for your saving!

That's the facts PAL not the make believe world you live in...

Hey guys.. Calm down, it's not even a commercial.........

Facts, facts, facts, well the fact is PAL, you are obviously the usual armchair expert who always knows best. Well you don't know me, don't know my expertise and don't know my motor (which is not an A3) and, as I already stated, needed none of these repairs/parts you keep moronically banging on about. Also for your "facts" the vehicle was fully inspected and serviced prior to me receiving it by my dealer friend. I wouldn't have spent 2 months researching and finding the right car at the right price to need a 30 day exchange guarantee either.

So now you know some REAL facts, whether you like them or not. Although you do seem to like arguing with anyone who disagree's with your opinion, are you really that insecure?

Ha ha ha ha insecure? Nah fella, it's called calling Billy BS's out on their claims!

Facts

1, You won the auction because the dealers you were bidding against decided that they had bid enough on the car to make a profit so pulled out.

2, Having done your research you obviously knew that in getting your 'specialist' friend to PDI (take it his mechanics are all factory trained and he has all the latest updates btw) and service your car instead of a main dealer you have knocked hundreds off the value of it as the will not come with full main dealer history and will not be valued at Cap Clean from any main dealer because of this.

3, An armchair expert isn't someone who has had years and years of buying and selling cars, that's the job of someone who claims to have saved several thousand when buying at auction....

4, You are aware that not all cars of the same make and model are exactly right and the same especially second hand yeah? The 30 day exchange is if you are unhappy about anything about the particular car you have bought from an Audi dealer not the model in general!

Still you know best because you did a bit of research...
Your thick headed ignorance is really boring me now and when did you "call me out"? Yeah your the BS hunter are you, here to protect your own opinions from that of anyone you disagree with...
I bought a car and saved myself some cash and your not happy because I didn't use a Dealer (which you claim to be) and by talking crap about damage/repairs/reliability and basically making up a load of BS about my car (of which you don't even know the correct marque never mind model or what I paid for it) you try to come across as the big-shot but in reality your just another idiot arguing on the internet...
OK, I give in, you win, I shall immediately run off to the nearest main dealer and buy the same car at a higher price off their forecourt because I obviously paid to little for mine to be a decent car. Grow the f*ck up you cretin.
My retort to your points above:
1) Isn't that usually how someone would win an auction? someone has to give in first and there were identical cars to mine that sold higher at the same auction, I was there! were you?
2) Absolute ****, the only people who push this utter crap are Dealers.
3) An armchair expert is someone who CLAIMS to have years and years of experience but is generally full of **** and tries to win an argument by stressing just how much more knowledge they have than anyone else "I'm cleverer than yow cos I've eaten beans every day for 20 years so Heinz MUST be the best".
4) I am very aware of the differences between models, that's why I bought the make/model/derivative I WANTED with all the extras I required... I bought the car I wanted and got the car I wanted whether you agree with that or not, that's YOUR problem!

I'm putting my rod and reel away for the night so you can continue to argue all you want, I won't be back to this thread.

Stuck a nerve have I? Never claimed to be a dealer nor am I! I do however work day in day out with main agents and as I said I have done over 20 years working for and with independent specialists and main agents from a banger dealer to Bentley! You can crow all you like about how much money you think you've saved but my experience wholly suggests otherwise.

So as you put it, jog on armchair expert, your defensive responses say it all....

Ha.... When I was in the market for a new car I looked at the A3, 1 Series and A class. A class was the worse of the lot, with a tacky looking interior - what on earth is that ipad stuck to the front!? Dont get me wrong, it had the best exterior of the lot.

My A3 was also a bit more expensive than the A Class so your comment is flawed.
