Fair price for 95 A6 Quattro?
Curious to see what this usenet thinks is a good price for a 95 A6
The local Audi dealer's used car salesman called to tell us they had a
95 A6 Quattro on their lot. We went over to test drive it and put a bid
on it. The A6 has 53000 miles on it and is in pretty good shape body
wise, a bunch of scratches and one scuff mark, about six inches long, on
the lower rear passenger door. The interior is in very good shape and
the previous owner had installed a Sony 10 CD changer. The previous
owner had also replaced the front two tires at about 40000 miles. The
brake pads looked like they still had some mileage left in them. The
records show that the maintenance schedule was followed religiously and
done at the dealer, it was a lease and I think that is one of the
conditions of the lease.
The car is an automatic, which is what my wife wants, and it was pretty
sluggish off the line but once it got past thirty or so it was much
more responsive. Is this type of performance typical of this model? Our
87 5000tq, with manual trans, felt more lively off the line than this
The original asking price on this A6 was 22500. We offered 20000 and the
dealer went down to 21000 with a 60000 mile scheduled maintenance, and
body work detailing, touch up paint job, thrown in. We're mulling this
over right now, but we really don't know who is closer to the "fair"
market price, them or us? I've seen on the net that dealers are
generally asking around this price range for Quattros with this mileage,
but I don't know if they are getting it.
Any thoughts on the deal?
