    Kevmoz reacted to JaseW in Golf mk8 R order thread - post your order details!   
    Had an email from James this morning stating my car is due into Sheerness this afternoon! 
     
    On a ship that has gone underneath my radar too.... It appears the Thames Highway is another Sheerness - Emden carrier. 
     
    He also said once he gets the VRN from DVLA he will send the finance docs over and fingers crossed with transportation timings from the port to dealer he will do his best so I can collect before next friday!!! 
     
    Obviously that is all down to how quick it leaves Sheerness after this afternoon. james says at the mo it has been anything from 2 days to a week for that journey. 
     
    🤞

    I’m looking at the moment and have been told 19 weeks to build plus delivery time on top.

    Yeah, one dealer told me 22 weeks. I think once build begins there's about 4 more weeks until it gets to dealer, right? 
     
    I'll post again when I get a firm build week.

    Nice part of the country there. I ride my bike out Ludlow/Leominster/Clee hill way on when the weather is conducive to a nice day of cycling. 
     
    DtD have had my business for my 7.5R and now my 8R. The dealer you will be put in touch with is brilliant and the Salesman will be a zero 'baffle with BS' kinda guy who will help you out with anything and everything you need to know. 
     
    you have no worries with DtD and supplying dealer thats for sure. 
     
    I look forward to hearing what spec you go for!!! Mortgage cost dependant no doubt lol.

    A few of you have suggested that I look at DtD rather than Carwow, you are absolutely correct. Carwow for my spec car was £44,731, same spec at DtD £40,306. Looks like I maybe able to add an Akrapovic exhaust and still be less than CW!
     
    Thanks to all that gave me the heads up 👍😉

    That’s great news.  That’s a big difference for your chosen spec!   It’s not always the case I know, but DtD have always come out cheaper than Carlow for me and such a painless way to buy a car with the best discounts.  The supplying dealer is fantastic too so win win all round.

    Yes I was thinking about that brake test and it could be down the tyres even. Maybe the 8R had crappy Bridgestones. 😁

    Couldn't agree more,DTD all positive and for me beat Carwow by £1400.
    The amount of people on here who have used DTD over Carwow speaks volumes.

    @Kevmoz  Another vote for DtD and JCB Medway (the DtD supplying dealership).  Fantastic discounts (beat Carwow for me), painless car buying (apart from the wait) and a dealership salesman that communicates.  Bought two cars through  DtD and can’t recommend it highly enough.

    Definitely look at Drive the Deal though..... These have beaten CarWow on both mk 7.5 R and 8R that I have ordered through them. Plus it seems that most using DTD end up with the same Dealer too and from experience you will have no issues at all from them, unlike a few on here who are using another method (dealer direct/lease company etc).

    Thanks for the reply, I bought my current R from my local dealer but through Carwow. I’ve told the dealer to make sure their pencil is sharp and to offer the best deal they can. I’ve also got Carwow figures coming in to compare and use as a stick!

    I spoke to my dealer as I’d like to place an order and they say that they will keep the quote APR if it goes up but will reduce it if it drops. Not sure if all dealers do that?

    I doubt they’d inspect it that much.
    If it’s a voluntary termination they’ll have a look round and send it to auction.
    It’s not like a pcp car return, it’s an 8-9 year old car.
    I wouldn’t spend another penny on it.
    Just some info for your son that this will leave a mark on his credit file and may affect future finance etc for a short time.

    The finance company should advise on the next steps, including when/where an inspection will take place and then where the car needs to be returned to or if it will be collected.  You may be charged for each of these items, plus any admin fees.  When you VT a car the mileage, even if it's over the agreed mileage allowance is irrelevant.  The condition of the car however, is not. 
     
    You're usually required to follow the guidance in the BVRLA guidebook.  Some things can be classed as fair wear and tear and others will either need to be corrected in advance or you'll be billed for correcting them.  Sometimes the finance company/inspector may charge less than what it would for you to have the work done, sometimes it could be stupidly more.  I'd check the BVRLA guidance regarding the alloys. 
     
    Make sure you take plenty of pics of the car, in good light and when it's clean before anyone takes it away.

    Just bought 4 PS4 18” for my Cadiz from Kwik fit for £346 fully fitted. They have 15% off 4 with code MCC. I did look at the PS4s earlier in the week but they were not an option today but were quoting at £116 each when they were available.

    The rear spoiler/wing is part of the Performance Pack.  Its not an option on its own.  The Performance Pack gives you the the spoiler, 19” Estorial wheels, two extra drive modes - Special (Nurburgring) mode and Drift mode, plus the top speed is derestricted.
