Ive given up telling them what actual mileage I do and now just take the car as 8k miles per year to keep the price down.

I went under with one car at 12k miles per year and they don't give you the difference back.

So the next car I put 10k and went way over it. Come trade in time the extra mileage didn't matter a jot. The difference on WBAC for quotes with different mileage was negligible.

For me it will only really come in to the equation if you hand them back the keys and walk away, which I doubt I'd ever do.

That is a really insightful comment - that plus my calculation that you actually pay more for the mileage monthly than you would in the end anyway, makes me think knock it right right back and take the gamble.

I know this is a million dollar question but what’s everyone feelings about better deals coming along next year or do you feel things will only get worse?  I always find people’s take on things and knowledge really interesting, I know it’s impossible to know but other people’s gut feelings are usually better than mine!

With Vw price increases I fear it will only get worse. I’m a proper ray of sunshine today!

Generally prices go up - there will be smoke and mirrors with the finance package, standard options and what not but over any meaningful period of time the price only goes one way.

Yeah it will go up about 3-4% in January. That's assuming they don't add any post brexit import duty to it, which could add another 1500 easily. Sure they might increase PCP deposit contribution, it's current 1250, should imagine 1500 wouldn't be a surprise.

Where are people getting quotes from, I’ve only found it listed on broadspeed but the site just looked a bit like a scam.

Quotes for the gti? Drive the Deal, Coast 2 Coast, Brokers4Cars and Broadspeed which is complete legitimate. It’s a shame Orange Wheels are lease only now as they were decent too.

No problem. I did think it was me being thick. And it was! At least I’m consistent.  :whistle:
