I agree...That looks like a US car though, which raises a whole bunch of other questions :/ Maybe you could shed some light into why you are selling?

Definitely US car. This is US premium, not Canadian premium (i.e. No LED DRL).
So this is basically a base model Canadian A4. Heck, it may even be a FWD...
Either way, that's only slightly lower than new (you save freight and PDI, etc) but it's a US car.

it's a car bought in the US...look at the speedo (primary unit is MPH)...so u try to guess how much he got it for since the cars are much cheaper in the US and the dollar is better than par.

everyone wins. It's already imported, he gets more than trading it in, buyer gets a great car. However, might be an accident car or flood car?

Just a comparison for those looking at this car...

This one: U.S. Premium A4 2.0TQ (assuming Quattro, I think I see the badge on the trunk), which is just the base Canadian model with no added options.

The Canadian equivalent per Audi.ca...

2.0T quattro tiptronic: $41,300
Freight + etc: $2,700 ($1,995 + other stuff)
Total: $44,000 before discount

(Note: this car is brilliant black (from picture), no Bi-xenon, no bluetooth, no AMI based on the descriptions provided)

So, for $3,000 less any discount you can negotiate with the dealer, you are getting an used U.S. car vs. a new Canadian car. If that's a good deal to you, knock yourself out. :confused:
Btw, I see dealers giving $2,000 discounts on A4... so the new Canadian car can be had for $42,000...

I've seen you sell multiple cars on these forums. How can you be going through so many different cars (Dodge, ford focus, now an audi A4? Or are you a dealer selling your car on these forums?

I don't think selling 2 cars over a 2year period makes me a dealer. I would be a really sh*ty dealer if that was the case. I buy and sell a lot of different stuff in these forums, just like a lotnof other rfd'ers.

Anyway, trolls aside,... I sold my 2000 focus(posted in 2009 when I bought caliber), and 2009 caliber, then bought this, now I'm trying to parlé it into an suv....(Escape sport?)

Buy/sell/trade.... Isn't that the general idea of these forums!?

I hope my question about your reasoning behind selling precipitated this. I don't think you need to justify why you sold x amount of cars. That's the responsibility of the moderator and NOT other users.
