But I got a settlement figure my GTI Performance this year and that was £19.5k. Probably a bit cheaper than you could get one retail but there wasn't enough for it go through my trade contacts so let them pick it up.

Settlement is going to be outstanding balance + interest yet unpaid (ie the full amount they would have earnt from you if you kept paying until the end) + some sort of admin fee.

There probably is some sort of graph you could plot that would show cost to payoff vs trade value and I doubt if it makes much sense until at least 70% through the term, maybe even later. It will depend on the car though.

I meant a final value at the end of the 2-year lease.

Do many of the TCR owners hit the over £40k luxury car tax bracket?

Most 19 plate cars should be okay but when they added the Akrapovic exhaust they upped the base price for 69 plate cars so just adding 19s would put a car in the luxury tax range.

When I did the deal for my current car back in Feb last year, the dealer had a Grey TCR in their showroom. It was being offered at a ‘special discounted’ price, but I remember that the discounted price was still quite a bit in excess of £40k. It had the Akrapovic exhaust and optional 19” Reifnitz alloys and looked great :cool:.

Even if it’d been possible to get them below their ‘special discounted’ price by haggling, the £40k+ list price pushed it into the luxury VED band.

I've got Akra exhaust, DCC, dynaudio, heated front screen and grey colour and still wasn't above the luxury tax.

was one of the lucky few who ordered before the MY 20 changes and so the Akrapovic being a now standard fit proved to be a freebie and so it was well under the £40,000 for me also, and do love the Akrapovic, they look great for starters and clean so easily compared to the chrome on the R but I still would not pay for the Akrapovic as an upgrade unless had no eye on budget, which usually have to, but feel lucked out on passing on another R and getting the TCR as really love it across the board in looks, performance and agility as well as all the usual Golf features that make for ease of living with.

I've only done 3000 miles since last July but it's a great car. 👍
