As Nick says tyres at 14k are not earth shattering, nor is 3 owners in a 6 year old car IMHO. However it's diesel, white, way too long and as Ian says you would probably cover it in the wrong badges anyway. Narrow escape you had there (again IMHO) it's about as desirable as a visit to the dentist

i think more than anything it was the rust on metal parts underneath that did me, the rear subframe, suspension legs, exhaust all nuts/bolts etc had more corrosion on them than my 157,000 miles A6

lucky escape yeh, and no deposit back yet

I had a Range Rover 2002 I bought of a guy who owned a boat. Had similar rust at the rear subframe etc. This was where he would go and tow the boat out from the sea water. Good you steered away from it.

So cancelled it. Sent the guy home. Unwound the finance, returned my deposit, cancelled all the Audi aftercare products. Right admin pain for them.

They relisted it that day for 4 grand more to cover their costs, it still sold straight away. It was one heck of a spec on it.
That's a real shame. I remember you talking about that Q7 when I was looking for one 18 months ago.

Mine doesn't have nearly the spec yours did, but it's still running and has been pretty dependable. Of course, lockdown means I haven't used it as intended and my needs have now changed...
