Not unusual. Apart from a few 'classics' high priced vehicles, especially saloons seem to suffer very high depreciation rates after the first few years.
I have my own theory as to why this is, but will decline to elaborate for fear of ruffling any feathers.

Now I'm intrigued. Please ruffle away! :D

Hahaha my old B5 A4 1.8t MTM stage 2 had a retail of $90k in 1996 and i purchased it for $4k. The previous owner must have spent at least another $90k in 20 years - i had all the receipts!

Looked up the ur. This can't be right, surely? They were 25,000 GBP at that time. The exchange rate was about $3 to 1 GBP so maybe a 65% New Zealand tax was addded?

Yeah except for a couple of exceptional models, Audis lose 50% in 3 years, 70-80 % in 5-7 years .... 

then I might buy them ...   >:D

This was amusing, the l/100km display isn't allowed to go over 40.9

They are pretty cool. Wrong-sized cheap tyres on them though.

Compared to your existing wheel, this new wheel will have an inner rim which is 2.7mm closer to the suspension strut. The outer rim will poke out 22.7mm more than before.

Cabin filter changed. It was a bit leafy.



Checked out a few more wheel styles, but I'm still liking the black Rotiforms.
