Hi, It been 5 yeas since we bought our A2 & now its time to sell but not sure whether to sell as is or spend some money on detailing.
Its a Met Black 1.6 FSI with 5 seats, its done 102K, full service history, air con, the wheels are the 17" 9 Spoke RS4 alloys but they need refurbing at a cost of around £350-400 (I was going to get them done at lepsoms), the car is in good condition but will need be Valeted/cleaned. The display on the 6CD Symphony radio is faulty & does not correctly show the info, a middle strip is missing. it all works though
It just had an mot & failed on washers direction, light bulb & nearside lamp aim needs adjusting, it had an advisory on the brake disc being rusty as it sat for the last few months, number plate & tyre which I was going to replace. Obviously I will get the items done for the mot.
Its a nice car let down cosmetically so my question is it worth spending approx £500 refurbing the wheels, replacing the discs & pads, detailing the bodywork & valeting the interior. i.e do you think I will get the money back or will it just make it more desirable, & how much would I expect to get for it now with & without doing the work?
