If you want to sell your car easily to a Transporter movie franchise fan, then your vehicle should be an Audi, particularly an Audi A8. Although this car brand did not have a very good reception when it was launched in the US market, Audi is now considered as one of the more popular foreign manufacturers of luxury sedans and cars. Aside from its exterior design, people choose Audi over other European-made cars because of its elegant and lush interiors as well as its sterling performance.
Many owners of Audi cars are loyal to the brand. It is typical for someone who bought a 2003 Audi A6 to buy the 2008 Audi A8, which has an MSRP of between $70,600 and $120,000. So if you own a 2001 Audi Quattro, you may also want to sell your car now for the new Audi Q7, which has all the power of the Quattro AWD, only it comes with a V8 engine. The MSRP of the new Audi Q7 is between $42,000 and $58,000. If you do not want to spend a lot of money for a 2008 model of your favorite Audi brand, you can opt to invest in a pre-owned 2007 Audi A6, (which has an MSRP of $42,000 to $56,000) for just $19,616 to $28,000. This model actually has more comfortable interiors than the older Audi A6 models, according to the observations of some consumers.
Aside from form and function, the reason why Audi cars are sought after is due to its steady reliability ratings. Even the 2004 models of this European brand have excellent engine, driveline and transmission, steering and suspension, air conditioning and heating, and brake systems. So if you own one of the 2004 Audi A4, A6, S4, TT and A8 models, you can sell your car at very competitive prices, especially if your vehicle has a low mileage and is in excellent condition. It may be a great idea to sell privately too so you can get the best price.
Although the prices of brand new Audi cars are at par with other German carmakers, the residual value of Audi cars is quite lower than most of its competitors. This is an important fact that you need to know before you sell your car. To illustrate, a 2006 Audi A4 is now being sold at $32,000 down from its original MSRP of $37,000. On the other hand, a 2006 BMW 325Ci, which has an MSRP of $39,600 can still be sold used for around $37,000.
