Okay, I checked our used car roster for you. Note, I'm not trying to sell
this to you. I'm giving it out for comparison to the deal you are working
out. We have a 96 A6q, 33K, slushbox, leather.. heated seats.. non-Bose:
$25,9K asking price. We've also had a blue 95 A6q 5sp(with a low spoiler!)
running about that I have no idea what we want for it. I also know we have
a 96A6qw slushbox, and Saturday somebody traded in their red 97 A4q
slushbox in. I didn't jot down the prices for anything but the one I got a
chance to drive. 

I'm not sure what we'd go down on the $25,9 A6q, but realize that what I
quoted was ASKING price. From the look of it to me, one model year PLUS the
lower mileage should compute to mean that the car you are looking for can
be had for less. I think the market is probably filled with lease turn ins
this time of year. Since we've had Three used A6q's recently, collecting
dust and very little interest on our lot, it's a strong bet that many other
dealers have them too. With the introduction of the new A6, the old model
(like my mother's) just took a major hit in depreciation. I'm sure deals
can be found so the best advice is to shop around a bit before spending the
