Will not having the emissions fix done affect the resale value of my car?

I have a 2009 Audi A3 TDI with 98000 miles on the clock. I received a call from Audi for the emissions fix. From what I have read and heard I am unsure as to whether to have it done. I would like to keep the car for another two years. Would not having the fix detract from the resale value?

Your car is much higher mileage than the cars for which the fix was approved by the KBA. The injectors and the EGR valve stem will be worn and probably won't be up to the extra work they will have to do after the fix. I'd leave it alone.

Good choice of engines. Some petrol engines now chain cam. Comfortable and well built interior. cheap to run 1.6 TDI. Feels very refined especially on the motorway.
