My honest thought is the price is high. I concur with Ian.

I've been loosely looking for a while. My PF D3 is at ~177k and whilst a good buy for me at the the time, I've always missed my D2 S8 despite on paper the 4.2 D3 being about as quick it's never felt it, so I often cost A8/S8 ads.

D3's tend to be in the 3-8k range and yours is at the top of that, heck i've seen quite a few high mileage S8 D3's at the top range, though that tends to be a different purchaser!

I'm not sure if the 3L TDI is a bit more desired because of economy though I think a lot of people won't see it as an economy car regardless of the engine.

It looks nice and the mileage is fair, the colour combo is decent if not exciting, you'll probably be waiting a while at that price though!

However the big glaring error is the steering wheel shot, a quick dust would do wonders!

At least my reply had a bit of sugar coating on it.......

Worst seats ever made is a touch harsh, but they do scream 'low spec' whenever you see them sadly.

My only comment would be to put more information in the advert on Gumtree.

From my perspective, it's like you're trying to sell it to someone who knows what features the car comes with, rather than appealing to a wider audience who might be interested in the car, but they have to use Google to find out what features/options the car has. I'm not saying that you should list every nut and bolt, but have something along the lines of IT's signature line for the 'Family Wagon'.

I sort of put it on a par with those people that want to sell a car and only bother to put up one picture of it.
