DO I, DON'T I ?
« on: 05 August 2009, 19:03 »
My car will be delivered to the dealer on Monday, they have told me It will be ready for collection on Tuesday.
Problem I have now is do get it then, or wait 3 weeks for a 59 plate.
They have said it will make about £500 difference when it comes to trading in later on.
I know its not really something I should be thinking of right now but I have waited 10 weeks now, is another 3 going to make much difference.
Question is do I or don't I ?

Personally I wouldn't be able to wait.. but on the other hand i do have a rather sad hobby of counting how many cars i see with new plates on new registration days :grin:

I should be picking mine up next week too and i am going to get it straight away. I have a private plate so you cant tell anyway but after waiting for 14 weeks i want it RIGHT NOW and don't want to wait any longer.

I'd wait. Think of the street cred of a 59 plate GTi  :wink:
3 weeks is nothing. You know it is safe and waiting on you.

Wait for 59, would be madness now to collect it with an 09 with only 3 weeks left.

Depends if you need it or not. If not, then look on it as extra cash for a couple of weeks.

Its crazy though because the car is no newer, it'll just sit at a dealer's car park for a few weeks!
