    Buying a User Car - Where to buy a used car?

    Hey all,

    Before I begin I thought for sure there would already be a thread for this looked everyone but couldnt find one ..

    Anyway here I go...

    Im trying to find a very unique used car its not a classic - its a variant of the Audi A4 but a very very specific car Im looking for.

    I have checked all the usual places I can think of :

    Autotrader,
    Exchange&Mart,
    Pistonheads,
    Ebay,
    Sun Local

    and so far I have found 2 of the car that I seek which are about 90 miles away!

    Can anyone else recommend places to find used cars? I dont need finance and as I said Im looking for a specific car

    Audi A4 Saloon Quattro S-Line 2.0 TDI with leather & Sat Nav under 40k miles and under £21,500 prefer if it had wood inlays but not essential... & must not be in silver! (dark colours preferred)

    I've also tried the Audi used car site..

    Any help would be great thanks!

    Try your local Audi dealer they should be able to find one for you :thumbsup:

    Nice car btw (shame bout the wood lol)

    Try the classifieds in a specialist forum. You usually find that enthusiasts looks after their cars very well.

    Try here: vwaudiforum.co.uk/

    And 90 miles is no distance to travel for the right car IMO.

    I also will travel for the right car but the autotrader workis it out in a straight line so the 90 miles could easily double as we have to use the roads lol

    Still........

    I'm in manchester and only last week was ready to travel to Portsmouth for a car. Unfortunately I was pipped at the post, but if you are sure then it's only the cost of a train ticket and then a nice drive home in your new car!

    That would be the advantage of the dealer they would bring it to you!!

    Yeah but they won't bring it to you to view it, only deliver it after you've bought it. You would want to see a car in the flesh first if you're spending £20k+ on it, surely?

    Thanks .. its for my dad hence the wood .. last time we walked into an Audi dealer they complete ignored us! Snooty ********

    Thanks deek72 I'll try the Audi forum,

    RE the distance, yes these cars are on autotrader and they have 95% of what im looking for, unfortunately one is silver and my dads already had 2 silver cars for the past 10 years so no no .. the other is nice and we may go and see it but wanted to see if I could find some more..

    Thanks I've signed up to a forum as the above helpful people mentioned and also checked fish all 3.0l cars im afraid!

    Checked the audi used car site last week, theres only 1 that matches my criteria which is the same one as on autotrader - however I have signed up for email alerts when a car of my criteria turns up!
