GFV for a GTI seems to be a couple of grand more than for a 128 which helps.  If that online calculator is halfway accurate it doesnt look like there is a lot in it when it comes to a base GTI vs a 128 with some options that somewhat normalise the specs.

I've not seen the BMW figures yet, I've still got quotes outstanding for both but the BMW interest figure is quite a lot less

I've got figures for the 128,

Cash price £32700 (inc options, delivery RFL etc and after discount)
Deposit £1300
48 x £450
Final Balloon £12788

Expecting figures for the GTI next week.  I was told all that was missing from the finance system was the GFV which seems to be in place now. 

On Thursday I was fully expecting to be ordering a GTI as long as the money made sense.  Having sat in a 1 series msport spec today I'm not so sure - though the spec isn't nearly as generous on the 128 - the fit and finish of the cabin is leagues ahead.  Looks like the money will be in much the same ballpark (at least for me - VW have intimated they will give a very generous trade in for my car, BMW have just offered book - if BMW don't budge on further negotiation then that will likely normalize the pricing).

That bmw gfv sounds low, but can only assume that's because it's four years. Does four years make any sense for PCP? I'm not sure it does. Still seems very expensive.

Have you thought of getting a price from wbac on your current car? To me it seems like a better option.

You know I hadn't thought about 3-4 years - that was just 'the offer' - I will ask them to recalculate for 3 years. 

I've got a quote from WBAC which is higher than BMW but I'm going to wait until I've had VW's valuation as well and then see what the best basis for negotiation is.

It’s worth using the part exchange valuation tool on VW’s website to see how that compares to other p/ex valuations you get from the likes of WBAC. Also, used car prices for ‘in demand’ models have been increasing in recent months, so it’d be worth checking periodically any sources you’ve used, as you may be pleasantly surprised.

The only thing to be aware of with wbac is that they will tyre kick. I've never had them actually offer the full amount even when I've been totally honest about scrapes and dings.

True  I wasted my time with wbac would never try them again. Most with similar sounding names were exactly the same i was loosing hope. Then I tried one called Motorway they use car dealers. I turned up expecting the same all they did was just walk round no inspection and said right lets get the paperwork done.. I was so shocked as no haggle, no pull to bits, nothing so did the paper work well computer work that took only a couple minutes then realised I then had to get home without a car! Oops! Bus monkey I became  :grin:
PS Motorway quoted price was also £1300 more than Wbac price before they discounted so got over 2k more than wbac. Offered.
I sound like an advert lol but I would try them again unlike all those other time wasters.
