Thank you very much, but these 2 are private sale and any comparison website is giving me mostly cars sold by a dealer. I wanted to ask people who are in the country for longer than me if this is good deal for a private sale.

Dealers usually charge more. Without seeing the condition of the car, no one can really say if it's a deal or not, but at least paying the dealer premium you get some sort of warranty and protection. If you know and trust the seller, get a TCS chappie to come and give the vehicle a checking over, alerting you to any hidden perils. Private sales can be good value for money, but get it checked for outstanding finance if nothing else. Dealer forecourts are desserted at this time of year. Perhaps go in with cash and make an offer.

Re: Your opinion on the price

Can`t compare or comment on the Audi but I`d say the price for the Golf 4 is fair. I paid 6500 euro for a Golf 4 last year in germany. It`s smaller than the one you`re interested in and had 10.000km more. And my dad () said the price was good.

Although you`ll soon (85.000km) need to exchange the "Zahnriemen" which can easily be 1000CHF.

Re: Your opinion on the price

I'd try to take the Audi but negotiating it down to a 5900 at least. Ending up about six would be OK. That price seems overrated to me - unless the car's interior is in a spotless, good-smelling condition including the boots. Then it is ok.

Re: Your opinion on the price

Golf !

OK, 3k more BUT less than half the millage of the other one.

Bugger the colour.

And finally, underneath they are EXACTLY the same car.

Have you shopped around or are these local privates?
