Regarding this sell : 1996 Audi A6 combi/station wagon for sale-Zurich

About the car JLF is selling, I would like to put things straight. The car was in order and had the last reparations done before we sold it. The reason we sold it so cheap was because we didn't want to lose time on it since from the day we learned we were moving and the move, passed as little as five weeks with a new born and a toddler to care.

We didn't sell it that cheap because it needed a lot of reparation, that is NOT true. Someone can find the sale thread I made last year and with the infos, you'll judge by yourself.

If the reparation came from the MFK, I could believe it but up to 2500? Really?

The car was sold for 700. CHF for the reasons mentioned above NOT because it needed lots of reparations! JLF got all the papers in order to prove It.

Thank you for clearing that up Nil. Don't worry - you have in no way lost face in this whole debacle. On the contrary!

Re: Regarding this sell : 1996 Audi A6 combi/station wagon for sale-Zurich

I can't believe the proportion this whole thing took. I have no idea all the work that MFK asked,but I know that we gave away a car fixed of everything our garagist told us to fix. I also mentioned the small fixes that might be needed for the MFK without knowing all the details.

JLF was the one at the MFK and she is the one who knows what needed to be fixed. I am not taking any sides in anything then saying why we sold the car for which price.

I am trully in shocked to see how expensive it was. That' all.

Going to an Audi garage for an old car could be really expensive.
I thought Nelly had fixed up cars in the past, so it sounds very strange, it was afterall Nelly's car acording to the end of the thread.

I don't know.

I said in my initial thread when I wanted to sell the car, that I didn't know much about it. Of course, we didn't go to an Audi garage but in one in Weil Am Rhein because it was much much cheaper. It is possible she didn't have much option than having it fixed in Zurich. I believe every garage in Zurich will cost the skin of my butt to get anything fixed.

I'm going to buy it for the asking price, and then advertise it for 12,000 CHF on the basis that it needed hundreds of repairs due to the two previous owners. And professional cleaning to remove the blood. And to have the car removed from the police "street crawling" database.
