I have a line on a '95 A6 Quattro, fully loaded, with 36,000 miles for $18,300. It's in really great condition though it needs front and rear brakes as well as a new serpentine belt (around $900 worth of work). Do you think this is a good price? I'd like to get it down to at least $17,800 to help pay for some of the work but I'm not sure how low he'll go. Any input is welcome.

Price seams a bit high, even for that low millage. Blue Book Retail is $15,450 US.
Other than that, its a great car, I have the same model / year.

Thanks. When I run the blue book value at KBB.com I get over $19,000 for retail. (So does the seller incidentally which is how he priced it). Wholesale I get $13,600 for good condition and $14,500 for excellent condition. I can't believe it would vary that much for geography?

So I guess it makes sense knowing you don't get the evils that come with driving around in michigan ;)
But if he is only knocking $700 off the price of retail its still quite high.
Retail means the dealership has looked it over, made sure its fully restored and in full mechanical condition, and should include a waruntee.. which obviously this isn't the case
(he has things to replace)
I would try and bid him down on those facts, its really undeniable! =)

especially if it needs brake work. In my town there are 2 A6Q wagons for sale for under $15,000 at the local euro car place. $18,000 is way out of line! Run away and look for a different car unless you can talk him down...

That guy is smoking crack!! I just bought a '96 A6 from CarMax with 37k on it for $15k. It is pristine with no work needed. It certainly is a great car and it's really sweet to find an older one with such low mileage, but PLEASE! Get Real.

And it has new brakes/tb service, and a warranty. More like $12,000-$13,000 for that car.

My solution... move to Arizona and the cars increase in value 15% overnight. ;)

The poor service you'll receive if you bring it to the dealer will disheartened you away from all Audi's forever. See my above post.

I have check price for the car woth this milage - $14K. If you buy from dealer you should look around the retail price. If you will buy from private party - midium between tradein and retail.
Good luck with the new car.

I bought a 96 A6 Q last year, with all options except CD Changer with 32K miles on it. Paid $18,000 + $1500 work (Brakes, tires, 30K mile servicing, alignment, fuel pump + filter).
So I paid $19,500 for a car 2 years newer.
