I have just handed my car in to Audi for part exchange but the build date for my A1 is not until mid Sept. I am finding it difficult without a car even though I'm on holiday from work. My worries are getting to and from work when I return. I would like to know if many people are or have been in the same situation and how do you get round the problem without having to spend 1-2 hours on public transport. Thanks

I thinking the same :? Part-ex was done on the day....
Forget the bull about your car losing £150 - 200 a week - Unless you got a fantastic offer on a nearly new part-ex?

Yeah same, I got a guarenteed value for my car and made the manager of Aberdeen Audi sign it to make sure it wouldn't change come time of picking up the new car.

My car would have lost a lot a money if waited for my A1 to come. I'd already lost approx £700 in a month already. I can use my mam's car but she regularly uses it so don't really want to take it off her to often. I'm just hoping my built date comes forward!

As long as you are happy with your deal Cupasoup :)

I sold mine privately this time - fixed price ad on fleabay - luvvly local lady rang and did a deal, she got a bargain and I got a £1000 more than stealer offered. No part exchange meant I could push the deal harder.

Do what Mojito says and try something outragous for a month. nice swb land rover for £500, still be worth £600 with a full tank in a month :roll:

What a piece of shit. Tbh, you can only drive a hard deal if your car isn't being built on order.

I want to know what you were driving that was losing that much money every month. :shock:

My dealer gave me the part ex price knowing I would still be using the car. As long as I kept to reasonable miles they were ok. They still put the car on their car lot for £3k more than I got for it :cry:

I had the same issue,

Sold my car on eBay and was expecting 1 - 2 months without a car ... then the dealership told me it would be a further month, or I could take a car that had just arrived at the dealership next week.

Managed to live 3 weeks without a car in the end, using my parents car and a company van :lol:

I was offered 2.5k for my mk1 TT and they reckoned by the time my car would arrive (2-3 months) they would give me 2k!! I reckon I can get at least 4k privately. WeBuyAnyCar even offered just over 3k!
