According to VW finance calculator dsg after 3 years @10k p.a. should be £16,416. Add 35 x £591 and the £500 deposit takes it to £37,601 (or £40,101 with the discount/finance contribution).

List price plus extras is £37,095    :undecided:

Right, I’m officially saying now that the figures can’t be accurate. There’s got to have been a mistake. Perhaps the mistake was even asking for figures in the first place though.  :grin:

There will also be 3 years worth of interest  :wink:

Yeah about four grand of it...

I appreciate some people on here don't care about the pennies, it's just a car they want but i thought it worth highlighting how you end up with a mental PCP monthly payment...

Absolutely right. I care greatly about the pennies. Many moons, before I joined this forum, I ended up in a dreadful pcp on a Vw. Never again.

Just watched Volkswizard’s review and have to agree with his summary, especially the the car’s more neutral stance and it feeling more alive in the corners.

There is definitely a change between comfort and sport but I’ve no clue the technical detail. I know it’s subjective but I found sport more compliant than comfort and I was not driving on perfect roads. Comfort did  not translate to what I was expecting but I only had an hour, there was no one there to explain the selection options on the touchscreen so perhaps there was some adjustability behind the initial comfort and sport options.

I’ve seen a few comments on the brakes, I am pretty sure they are de-badged PP brakes, they had a good feel and stopping power, I did not measure the rotors but they looked like 340 mm, they were definitely not 312mm from the non PP MK7.

Might not be much help, but for what it's worth I have an S7 on Oreo and it works fine for me. Or at least it did last time I used it. So I don't think the issue is phone compatibility, unless VW changed something on later cars.

Was that £300 or £3000?  :grin:
