Today I purchased this from Halfords.
My TDi90 has been standing most of the holiday period and the battery was almost drained. Enough power to keep the central locking alive but barely half a turn of the engine.
The booster took a while to charge (more than the claimed 2 hrs) but got the car started almost instantly.
I'm normally skeptical about things like this, but in this case I'm VERY impressed.

 
That’s joeys car I was an early bidder ..I’m pleased it broke the 3k mark he put an awful lot into it wheels you could get £600 on their own with new tires and a top line Billstein suspension that was probably £500 second hand was..£1200 + new .. votex £600 s/h new Gearbox sorted so I think whoever bought it got a good deal really .lots-of goodies .sad for Joey

Today i observed this little beauty, i think the price achieved for a car @ 190k was a good result........Yes / No???

Audi A2 1.4 TDI SE heated leather BOSE DIS Cruise Opensky
It’s a members car and the work that has gone into it makes it a special car. Good sign, I reckon as those that know these cars and what has been sorted on this is impressive. When you consider what people would buy some of the special elements for (votex, cup holder, wheels) it’s a good thing it all stayed together.
 
Knew it's a members car, it was on the Scottish trip, remember seeing it in one of the M6 motorway stops. I think the price achieved is good given the mileage, but not surprised it reached this kind of money given all the nice optics. 😍

Brilliant how small these things have become, you can also get a power bank with an attachment with jump leads which also doubles as a torch, usb phone charger etc. They featured as a top 10 motoring Christmas gift.

I guess that makes us obscene! 😀
I like many others look forward to seeing this rare beast when it goes up for sale, I won't be buying coz 5 A2's may get me put in the asylum.
 
If I had another barn as big as the converted barn we live in I wouldn’t be selling how many a2s left with this milage ..fully backed up with mot history and service history ..☹

Is this 12K example officially the lowest mileage A2 out there? Can anyone beat that? I’d like to see pictures too.
 
I will get it out easter time and take some pics ..I am hoping a serious buyer/ collector will come along ..it’s getting rarer to find ones like this to put away I have been lucky over last couple years to find the 4 gems I have ..but to find two under 13k ...I should be doing the lotto 😉

Today I changed the reverse light switch and the gearbox oil very rewarding scrambling around under the car, it also gave me a chance to have a proper look at the undercarriage, happy to report all seems well with a recent new ARB and drop link. The only slight issue is the pressed steel wishbones are looking rusty so may give them a spray with ACF 50 unless the hive mind says no. Also would it be a straight swap to put on cast wishbones.
Thanks

I think if they are rusty scabby etc on the out side the inside will almost certainly be the same & having seen the images on here I would be swapping to cast type if finances allow ASAP

hmm yes I should change the O/S as that's crusty where the N/S is just surface. Can I swop them both to cast or is that not an option.
