#215 of 251 A4 2003 Convertible
Jan 16, 2008 (7:27 pm)
I just had a comment and a question. I bought my Audi A4 convertible a little less than a year ago. It's a really sharp looking car and overall it rides pretty nice. I have the 1.8 turbo. It really does turn heads. Unfortuately I bought the car mainly for my wife. Now she's decided it's not practicle and wants me to sell it and get her a compact sedan, e.g., Honda Civic or Mazda 3, etc.
I've been researching Kelly Blue Book and NADA and other websites to find out what I can expect to get for the car if I sell it myself. I know the dealers won't give me as much if I trade it in. I also noticed that car dealers are using a service called Black Book and they seem to be very low in their appraisals compared to Kelly and some others.
My question is does everyone out there think it is better to sell it myself using Kelly Blue Book and some of the others that are on the Internet? The car is in excellent condition. It has 57,000 miles on it and is very clean. Any help anyone can give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

Yes. Sell it yourself. This Spring the car will sell itself. Don't give it away. You may also check with Enterprise Car rental/sales. They're always looking for clean cars to sale. They tried to by mine. It's the same year, make and model as yours.
Good luck. By the way did you have the 50K service performed on your Audi A4 and how much did they charge you? Let me know.
#217 of 251 2004 A4 Cab should I purchase it?
Jan 24, 2008 (8:34 am)
Hi I am comming off my lease and I have been toying with the idea of purchasing the veichle. Audi has a great interest rate of 3.9 percent. I only have 42K miles on it. I was wondering if anyone had come up with this same or similar senario and if Audi were known to break down after a certain time. Should I look at just turning it in to save the headache. I love the car but just don't want to find out I will have problems in the long run. Any feed back would be welcome.
Let me know,
Thanks Ravin Patten

I purchased my '04 Cab this last August w/ 55k miles. Its a 3.0 Quattro and has been completely reliable so far. You don't say what the purchase price is but I'm going to guess in the low $20's. Since you know the history of the car and if you like it, why not go for it? If they want too much $$ then that may be another issue.

#220 of 251 Squeeky Brakes
Nov 24, 2008 (11:40 am)
I saw a message posted in 2005 about squeeky brakes but it seems that other owners are not experiencing similar problems. I've owned a 2003 model since 2005 and squeeky brakes have been a problem for three years now. The dealer says there is nothing they can do because it's due the bimetallic construction of the brakes. I bought the car with 32K miles it now has 55K. I recently had a brake job, pads a roters and the noise is still present, typically when slowing down with moderate braking. There's little or no noise with hard braking. Do I have a lemon, is this a design flaw, or has my dealer been taking me for a ride?
#221 of 251 My first post!! S4 Cabriolet Seats!!
Feb 06, 2009 (10:43 pm)
I have 2 black leather S4 Cabrilot front seats ( 2004) and want to trade for A4 cabriolet seats. The Deep bolster of the Recaro bucket is too deep for my fat butt and I'd prefer the flatter style of the Cabriolet 3 liter or turbo.
I could trade just the driver seat or both.
electric adjustment with lumbar and headrest adjustment, airbag, heat, and backrest tilt to enter rear seat.
email me at toobuckaol.com if interested. Thanks, Andy
