Greetings TDIclub folks:

I have a nice Audi A3 8P Sportback that I want to sell so I can go back to a 2015 manual shift golf sportwagen. I keep going back and forth between these vehicles, like them both for the different strengths they have.

Mine is a black one. Pictures here: Audi A3 8P 2013

Audi A3 2013 WAUKJAFM4DA016463
Clean title in hand, not rebuilt or salvage
Non smoker
No check engine lights. No emissions issues.
One set of official keys with remote unlock, additional set w/o remote unlock
Cargo cover and repair kit and spare tire in rear compartment

All basic maintenance done with idparts oil/filters/belts etc., mostly by me with harder stuff done by Kevin Bowling at TDI Repair Specialists in Versailles, KY (with Bruce Bowling available for consulting).

Tasteful Upgrades:
Rocketchip Stage 1
Kenwood stereo head unit with wireless Android Auto and Apple Carplay
Reverse Camera
Evolution Skid plate installed

I bought it 03/01/22 and replaced the nav system with a Kenwood head unit and backup camera. I got an oil filter and dsg change by Kevin Bowling, along with the Evolution skid plate in the first month.

I drive it on the interstate weekdays to my work, about 65 miles round trip, up and down I71 near Louisville KY, gets in the 33-36 mpg range, hand calculated. The car computer thinks it's higher, but I doubt it.

DPF and EGR were replaced in Dec '22 at mile 102,000 @ Audi Louisville, so that's done for awhile.

New battery, Oil and oil filter, diesel, air and cabin filter at 103000

New Bridgestone Potenza tires 3/11/23 @ Costco
Front brakes and rotors 3/11/23
New timing belt (+oil change) at 110000 7/1/23 by Kevin Bowling in Versailles, KY

Dieselgeek P2015 code fix 7/15/23

RocketChip Stage 1 is $485 .
EGR delete and intake flaps deleted $200.
Transmission DSG tune is $250.
Work done 7/10/23

If you scroll down towards the bottom of the page, it provides some pre-formatted links on the right.

But I agree it's not as intuitive as you would hope things would be in 2023 online discussion boards.

Here's a few of the clickable thumbnails

I didn't put the asking price in the body of the post - - $13,500. I paid $17,000 for it when I bought it. More than I should have, perhaps, but we've all been there!

Swap a 6 speed in it. Free bump for being an A3.GL with the sale from an A3 owner.

I've thought about a swap, but I could also use more space. I keep going back and forth on these two cars. Maybe I should just get one of each... :unsure:
