Strange, I'm not getting any of Nathan's notes, just responses to his notes..... My $.02 - buy (or lease, if you're a candidate) a new car if you can afford it. Especially with Audi's - unless you get a Certified car, I'd stay away from used. The price you noted seems pretty good - I've found carsdirect.com to have the best pricing, from an on-line perspective. I used their price to get the price I wanted from a local dealer. You can also buy through carsdirect directly (no financial interest etc). Based on the specs you noted, here is what they will sell it for -
'04 A4 1.8Tq MT-6
Central NJ USA
