« on: 28 March 2021, 17:37 »
So....seriously thinking of upgrading the wife's car to either a new R or CS, has anyone seen better deals than Drive The Deal at all?

I believe if you or family work for the nhs you can get discounts via that way.

You may be able to haggle with Carwow if the DTD dealer is too far away.

Carwow have gone well off the boil.

Drive the Deal still seem to be best for VW and they seem to get quite reasonable lead times too (probably getting fleet slots rather than hit and miss retail allocation).

Speak to our own evo1986 too, he will always give a no nonsense bit of advice and see what deals he can come up with.

It's been a while since I used Carwow, but the last time I did, after a bit of pushing I managed to get them to within £300 of DTD. Which I didn't think was too bad at the time, as the dealer was about 200 miles closer to home.

But if they're nowhere near then yeah I wouldn't bother with them.

Carwow are sh!te these days, Coast2Coast best for BMW, but you rarely beat DTD.

They do source their cars from the fleet side of sales generally, and my last 2 cars bought new (2 Polo GTI+) came from the fleet side of Listers VW Nuneaton. The first was properly through DTD, second time around I went direct to get DTD price and a free set of rubber mats.

I've just negotiated my latest car via them and they apparently gave me it at cost (presuming they have a sales tier market to meet), I can well believe it, as it's £426 under the DTD price.

Nothing as spicy as an R (used to have one),

We've gone electric for 1 car an ID3 204ps Life Pro Performance with Glacier white metallic plus the 18" alloy wheels (steel wheels were standard fit - yuck!). Official performance on par with a GTD, but they're apparently way understated on output/performance.

They've spent nowt on the interior mind, but the tech is good.

If you want to try your luck with them, speak to Anthony Rayner at Nuneaton branch, the guy I dealt with. Listers are a big group and have plenty of stock to allocate between the branches.

It was a bit confusing chasing numbers with him because he quoted "cost price" about £1300 more than DTD price and £1200 more than the price I'd seen on Autotrader. I told him the other prices included the £1750 deposit contribution and he finally twigged that his didn't. Once he took that into account, he was £426 under DTD and £492 under the autotrader price.

He grabbed me a general stock one yesterday that's built and sat at Emden.

If you're definitely going for a new car I'd chase tomorrow, early in the day to get the order sorted - there's a new pricelist due out on 1st April, and prices never go down or stay the same...
