  1. Past hour
  2. Sorry but no Golf is worth £50k just like no Merc A class is! Seen secondhand A35s for well over £40k - tbh, I find the dealership prices quite insulting because they think I’m stupid enough to pay it. No chance! BMW on the other hand....... Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. I would have preferred diamond cut my self but no option will have to go with 19". Don't like the 18" wheels at all
  4. Sorry mate but that bra looks horrendous! PPF is definitely the way to go. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  6. I’ve just replaced the clutch on my car at 39,000 miles. Took four hours to fit and cost £995 - should’ve lasted more than four and a half years but when one FRS owner had two engines in less than 12 months and another had a rear diff failure, I’ll take my R every time tbh!

  7. Today
  8. Even if my sister had taken and extended warranty (2 on top of the original 3) it would have still been outside of that. It is her first issue though otherwise it’s been faultless. Cars just aren’t what they used to be. They just make them cheaper and cheaper and just charge more.
  9. Looks nice, tastefully modded. Very easy to make these look like a Corsa with some of the plastic tat / stickers some people add. TBH, the 3 owners on a 3 year old car would put me off too. If it’s the spec you want I would get a comprehensive inspection done on the vehicle first. The window tinting looks dark, is it legal? Also, buy, beg or borrow a scan tool and get the ecu read.....although seller will probably have wiped any errors anyway. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Surely it's as simple as the pricing is just what VW UK think they can get for the car and if that proves to be wrong, they will increase the discounts and do deals with leasing companies to drive the volume? You could even look at is as a bargain, as 'my' £50k spec is over 60k Euros / £55k in Germany!
  11. I’d much prefer there to have been a 19” powder coated option rather than diamond cut. The 18” wheels I think are hideous, the 19” I quite like considering. Still wheels can be easily swapped out.
  12. I remember reading that manufacturers were basically passing on the cost of any fine in the price of their cars, so highly likely that 8R is at that (announced) price to cover that fine, if they don't hit the 95 average. Article in Autocar the other week said they were still above their weighted average they had to hit and I think they are pooling credits with MG to meet the target.
  13. I know 18" Cadiz come in for grief o the Mk 7 but I think they are ok and that's what I have my car. But these 18" on the 8R are fussy and appear to be very close to a design further down the range(Bergamo), so that makes it even worse 19" design on the 8R would be my choice if forced to choose. but I get where you are coming from. I prefer a bit more rigid design
  14. Not really too fussed - I would fit my bbs anyhow... assuming they haven’t changed the wheel specs.
  15. How and when did you find out they extended it? Mine coming up for 3 years in March, had it extended for another year, need to do it again. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. What are everyone's thoughts on the wheels, both sizes? Personally I dislike both designs. 18s are too fussy looking and the 19s too spindly with a silly twist !
  17. Pics are up now. I gotta say it looks maybe a little on the low side to me (the suspension I mean!), but otherwise not as ‘in your face’ as I was fearing. Am going for it I think! https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202011306628956
  18. I would be surprised if many had done this to such new vehicles to be honest as they would not then technically be legal to drive on the road and would invalidate the remaining warranty on the engine at the very least. But I may of course be mistaken.
  19. Costco are generally the cheapest especially when they have their offers on. Michelin offer was on for Black Friday but finished on Monday. The best performance tyre in 18” is the Goodyear Eagle F1 Supersport far superior than the Michelin PS4. The direct competitor for the Supersport is the PS4S from Michelin which they have just launched in 225/40/18 according to their website but haven’t found anywhere that actually stocks them yet. Costco have the Supersport £93.39 including fitting. Currently the tyre offer at Costco is on the Bridgestones £25 off 2 or £50 off 4 making them £70.28 a tyre inc fitting.

  20. I ended up buying mine 3 or 4 months ago - 2.5 year old, 39k, estate, metallic grey etc. £19k ish. Since then I’ve done about 500 miles! The bca purchase prices were rising 4 months ago due to new car supply issues etc. I was relatively happy with the price but they aren’t bargains.

    Walked up to her this morning, instantly thought of this thread!
  22. £250+VAT pm from VWFS here. They extended it from 24 to 36mths with max 40k miles without an issue in January. BCA have just started asking for it back as it ends officially end of jan but paperwork says first week march. The have asked if I want to keep it or if a family member or friend does to just fill in the paperwork with the name going on the V5. No plans to but always open to passing it on rather than it going to a dealer as guy at BCA says they are struggling to move stuff that isn’t bog standard atm
  23. Mine direct from VW was only £250pm +VAT and 10k miles. They extended it in January and have just asked if I want to keep it as a purchase. BCA struggling to move stock to dealers apparently. I won’t be but if anyone is interested then they can buy it through me - all I have to do is pay them and tell them who the V5 is going to.
  24. I dont know for sure, but at a guess id say it sounds like a pre gpf car with a res delete.
  25. It could get worse, there might be another 10% added to the purchase price after 01/01/21.
  26. Nice wheels. They're going to look ace! I've got matte bronze wheels on mine: --------------------------------------------- Come on, get up. Let me see your bruises. ---------------------------------------------
