You don't Happen to be an MP and going to claim this on your expenses are you? Does "816 mph on a single tank", as long as your chauffeur keeps below 56mph on the way from your country retreat (second home) on the way to Houses of Parliament. :thumbsup:

Not voting it cold though as it's a nice car if you can afford it these days.

You really should wait longer. Manufactures are gonna have to slash prices more than this to get rid of older stockpiled models. We are in the biggest car slump ever, The customer has never been in such a powerfull position to negotiate deals. The deal just does not seem good enough. Sure if you have set your heart on this model then it seems more appealing. If not, hold your horses, They will only stockpile them for so long.

or buy a 2 year old one with about 16,000 miles on it for £16,000 and save yourself another £4000 and still have your old car to sell for even more of a saving :-D

you can pick same model up from last year at under £15

not much of a saving for a 2 year old car tho esp as the new one includes vat, would rather pay £4K for anew one thanks

these are cheap as audi's like bmw's and lexus are way overpriced...i looked at a lexus 200 and with some options it was almost £40K - er no thanks i can buy an m3 for not much more or a year old rs4!

You can still haggle on the 20400 you will get it cheaper, just walk away if they so no you've got the upper hand.:)

I agree totally with your comment. Its just not very 'British' to haggle for a better deal though. I know I always feel cheeky doing it:oops:

Can't see the -2500.00 part of this deal (OTR = £24,900 / Scrappage Scheme -£2,000 / Dealer Deposit -£2,500) anywhere on the web site? Am I missing something?

Edit: Just found it you only get that discount if you take their PCP so not really part of the price deal, so in effect there is no deal, the actual price for this care is £24900 and whatever you can haggle!
#16
the only reason that put me off buying this is there's no quidco:p

800m wouldn't be achievable in real world conditions, but even if you got 700m out of a tank, that's pretty impressive. Although this will take £70 to fully fill it.

Audi's are very nice to sit in but a £2,500 discount isn't big by any means. I reckon this deal with the scrappage scheme would only get Hot votes if it was more like £18,000.

I know someone who has just bought a 1 year old version of this from a dealer for £15,000 and that's a model with over £2,000 of extras. So they ain't even holding the value well any more.
#18
Seems like a good enough deal, I love Audi's myself, however holding out until next year before I change to a newer model. This price looks good, but I think you could still negotiate a better deal. As another post mentioned, there are other dealerships, try a few and be prepared to walk to show you mean business.

With the 2% APR finance deal, this offer becomes even more irresistible: http://www.audi.co.uk/audi/uk/en2/Financial_Services/Finance_Offers/Personal_Contracts/a6.html



Audi A6 Saloon 2.0 TDIe SE 3-year, 10,000 mile per annum
Solutions example:
On-the-road retail cash price £24,900.00
Centre deposit contribution £2,500.00
Customer deposit £1,118.87
35 monthly payments of £379.00
Acceptance fee* £125.00
Optional final payment £8,835.00
Option to purchase fee** £60.00
Amount of credit £21,281.13
Total amount payable £25,778.87
Total amount payable by customer £23,278.87
Excess mileage 6.9p

[SIZE="4"]I know the above example doesn't include the £2,000 scrappage value but otherwise this is their 2% APR deal.

With an inital outlay of £1,243.87, 3 years committment at £379 a month, a final payment of £8,895 and a 10,000 miles per year mileage limit this was only ever going to get Cold votes.[/SIZE] :?

Voted cold, should be cheaper. The Government incentive is an excuse for them to barely budge and offer any haggling leeway. If I had £20k to chuck away I'd probably be more positive about it though, but if I had £20k to chuck away, I wouldn't have a car over 10 years old :thumbsup:
#21
Sub zero coldness here.

I'm 1/2 looking to change my a3 to an a6 but in no rush.

Why the f would you buy a new one when if you shop around u can get one 18 months old for about 12-13k.

/me pockets the 8k
#22
HOT from me as I am about to change from BMW to Audi and fancied the new A5 convert. but will have a look as the A6 when I pop in tomorrow. :)
#23

or a year old rs4!

#24
Just bought an A6 for £3k. Admittedly it is 8yrs old but does the business. Would readily recommend one but you can do better than this deal. Fairly used is great but if you're determined to buy new then consider online car dealers that can source it from abroad far cheaper.

Admiration ++++

I always wonder how much of this new car is for you and how much for other people.

Ie. If you are a sales manager you need to create an impression of success. Fair enough. But if you are just a father/husband/homeowner then it cannot matter in the slightest what the car you drive looks like within reason.

Unless it is to create an impression of wealth to those that just couldn't care less and matter less still.

I am very happy driving a '99 Primera GT SE which has only done 60k and costs less than £100 per year in parts INCLUDING the MOT. It just doesn't go wrong.

It is 'Fully loaded' and stands me in 2K.

Having just sold a chunk of land we are in a very good position to buy a new car each but why should we?

I just fail to see what is so important about having a new car.

I had one once (Company car) and it was nice but I far prefer a top spec secondhand car to a new basic model, however nice, that is going to hemorrhage £ like there is no tomorrow.


In 10 years time it'll be worth approx £2k IF YOU ARE LUCKY.

PS. Would love to know what car you are scrapping?

My thoughts exactly.

While it's obviously not 200gal, (:-D), any manufacturer can make a ridiculous claim such as this for any car. I have a diesel Focus for example, and it can drive over 750 miles to a tank by holding 11.658 gallons @ 65mpg being the best it can do.

Clearly it's better to quote mpg, but then props to the op, he does (53mpg - not to be sniffed at in a tank-like Audi).

I think there are some valid points to be said about the second hand deals being better. The Focus I have was fully loaded by Ford as a demonstrator and weighed in at £24,000 new in 2007 (yes, 24k for a Focus ... ) and after one year and 12k miles, I got it for a little over £10k - 58% drop. That is absolutely insane if you ask me, but deals like this are happening everywhere at all dealers if you are willing to look.
#29
Nice car and a good deal.

I can understand people voting cold if they could find a better deal (like for like) but instead they vote cold just because they don't want a new car or prefer a Merc etc.

I would still push for TDIe S Line for the same price and then snap there hands off.

My personal opinion, is that the deal here: http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/402321/masive-savings-on-pre-reg-new-cars- offers better value for money. Okay, it's not an Audi, but the £20k potentially spent here on the A6 for an average spec, will get you a 2.2 Titanium with all the toys (and potentially a few fancy extras). The OP chips in with more details throughout.

That deal is still wallowing in coldness, but, if you look at it sensibly and Arnold Clark are genuinely offering those discounts, it's actually a very good deal. People are most likely voting cold on these, because the cash involved is a huge sum and there are not that many folk in a position to stump it all up right now, especially when common sense dictates that 99.9% of cars are a waste of money (ie, 0.1% of cars may appreciate!).

Best post on here... :thumbsup:

New cars are a complete waste of money.

I am in a similar situation to you, my 9 year old Honda Civic never goes wrong, it takes me from A to B reliably, always passes it's MOT, why would I want a new car?;-)

Seeing as the government only foots £1000 of the £2000 discount, I'd say that VAT revenues will offset most of the discount, if not all. Bear in mind that the scheme has loopholes for long waiting times, which will apparently rule out the most popular models as a result.

you can live on a diet of rice and offal....... so why eat chicken or steak?

a family of 4 can live in a 2 bedroom terrace or flat.........why have a 4 bedroom house?

if nobody buys new cars where are the old ones gonna come from exactly?

It’s wasteful to scrap 10 year old cars. If you take the example of rizla01, he has a 1999 Primera that has only done 60,000 miles and as he says “it just doesn’t go wrong”. The P11 Primera is an exceptional car that is capable of giving reliable service for a lot longer than 10 years even if the mileage is much higher than 60,000. Even lesser cars have a good deal of life left in them after their tenth birthday. To scrap thousands of cars like this is waste on a grand scale. It is also a waste of taxpayers’ money to pay for a good car to be scrapped so that a new one can be imported from Germany.

There is this argument too. The government wants to be rid of cars that put out 'poor' emissions levels, yet the carbon footprint of building a new one and scrapping the old one is less than leaving the old car to carry on until its death?

It's hard to believe, but the government have convinced themselves it will work. When the likes of GM end up in a pickle (already are) and this scheme doesn't work, they'll have excuses ready. In the meantime, the rest of us foot the bill through taxes.

But, it's a government approved scheme and we elected this government ... so ... :p

its an incentive mate you are missing the point ...... not all cars are gonna be scrapped and a 10 year old car does more harm to the environment than a new 1

yeah people who cant afford a new car or who dont care for 1 arent gonna be using it bvut for people who were intending to buy new it works well for them

Thanks for all your comments. I would still like more people to comment on why they would or would not go for this deal.

The following is why I'm tempted (not that I'm adamant on a new car):

- I drive a 1997 BMW 528i SE (2798 cc, 189 BHP, £185 road tax, 22 mpg, Petrol, 148000 miles on the clock);
- I've owned it for about 3-4 years & previously owned a 1998 BMW 525i SE, both of which are fantastic drives (especially on motorways);
- But looking back into my records, I've spent in average £600 per year to maintain them (excluding tyres and services);
- I travel about 8000-10000 miles a year (used to do a lot more earlier);
- The vehicle is now due for four new tyres, new front suspensions & full service, before it's MOT in November 2009 with an expected cost of £1000

Hence the decision to replace my vehicle, but:

- If I sell my vehicle privately, it will get me £700 and dealer exchange is about £400;
- A replacement second-hand car (bit newer) will cost me £12000-15000 (depending on what I want);
- I'm not in a position to pay-out these amounts in one shot (all cash invested elsewhere), but I can easily afford monthly payments of up to £300

Then came the Audi A6 deal:

- I get £2000 for the old banger;
- I get finance @ 2% APR - with only £1100 deposit and ~£300 per month;
- Nearest rivals, the BMW 520d and Benz E220 with no SE upgrade starts >£27,000;
- I get a brand new Audi A6, economy vehicle but with no great compromises (and free SE upgrade);
- Save £40 on MOT (for the first three years) and £100s on fuel;
- I could use the current financial climate to get a few add-ons for free.

[COLOR="Red"]I'm not personally a big fan of investments in metal (in other words, new cars) - but for what it is, is this a deal @ 20,400 on a 2% finance deal?[/COLOR]

Please don't compare this with cars of other segments - like someone mentioned on this thread, I could still get from A to B using a brand new Fiat Punto for £4995 but that's not me! (I once crashed head-on @ 80 mph on M1 in my previous car 525i SE but I walked out of the vehicle with a minor bruise on my right arm and with hatred for all European truck drivers).

@ mervinsx

How much do you pay once you add on the 2% finance over x many years? If it were 0% APR, then perhaps it would be better, even though 2% is fairly low.

I mentioned the Titanium X 2.2 diesel Mondeo, which is a lot closer to the likes of Audi/BMW/Merc than ever before, as well as being bigger than the last Mondeo, now more comparible to the A6.

The fact of the matter remains that the Mondeo actually drives better, performs better and handles better, even though it still carries the burden of the Mondeo moniker. The A6 TDIe is touted for being very plain, but comfortable. If you are used to big engine cars like the 2.8 Beemer, then this 2.0 TDI lump will be a shock. Not to mention the Mondy has a very high NCAP rating and a decent 2.0/2.2 diesel to boot.

You can't say "please don't compare this car to other segments" and not expect people to :-D You've not explained the need for an A6 sized car - is the A4 too small etc?
