Should I sell my 2013 Audi A6 Avant or keep it for possible legal compensation?

My 2013 Audi A6 Avant was affected by the diesel emissions scandal. Rectification work has been completed and I have had no issues with the car whatsoever. I bought the car through PCP and it was an approved used Audi, three months old with about 2500 miles on the clock. My four year plan is up in early 2018 (or sooner if I like) and I am thinking about what to do next. I'm aware of various legal actions that have come about both in Europe, and still underway in the UK but don't know if I would be better to keep the vehicle as there may be compensation in the future, or if selling the vehicle would mean that compensation is no longer a possibility. I'm happy with Audi and would use any compensation to upgrade but wouldn't want to miss out on a bit of a leg up.

You have no case for compensation because you state there is nothing wrong with your car. So if you want to get rid of it early that will not put you at a disadvantage in extracting compensation that you are not due.

Refined and comfortable. 2.0 TDI is strong yet economical. More headroom than previous A6 Avant. 3.0 BiTDI is stunningly quick.
