So you went for the 3rd most 'poorly made' one out of the 8 (and Mini is German, really) - but with the biggest discount.

Jeez, where do I start.Trust me - I VERY MUCH, GET IT.I can't be bothered …Jeez, where do I start.Trust me - I VERY MUCH, GET IT.I can't be bothered checking your numbers, but you plainly say there that you save £568.80 - so not £2,000 then? (or £3.64 per week, to better compare to my example). And to save that £3 a week, you could end up with a car in massive negative equity, with no option to return to the finance company.It isn't a discount, it's a separate incentive paid by the respective finance company, but you can play around to turn it into a partial discount (in your example, about a quarter).I'm done now, you really need to give up - I'm sure I know little or nothing about your line of work, but I'm not trying to catch you out on it.


You save £2k on either option....you save an extra £568.80 on option 2. As I said you can get the £2k either way....Christ.
It is a discount....its a measure of currency you do not have to pay to purchase an object....the fact it is offered as an incentive for taking out finance is totally irrelevant as they can't claw it back if you pay it off.

You don't pay the £2k, you don't get the £2k in your account so you don't see the £2k anywhere but a minus figure on the invoice when you pick up the car - ie its a DISCOUNT. Not turning it into anything but what it is, a discount....call it what you like, its a discount.

Bit like Skoda in 2010 were doing their cars VAT free....They weren't of course, it was a discount disguised as this, the VAT was still on there and this figure was just in a box on the invoice with a "-" in front of it, just like a "deposit contribution", "dealer contribution", "retailer contribution" or anything else than the dealer decides to call it that day....its still x amount you don't have to pay to buy the car therefore a discount.

Goodbye.

I have never told anyone they can't pay off their PCP, it doesn't matter …I have never told anyone they can't pay off their PCP, it doesn't matter to me at all if they did.However, it's not the huge rip-off that you are trying to tell people that it is - and in the case of VW buyers, it offers them a safety net (hand back to VW Finance) that many of them will benefit from.[Image] [Image] So, by going through all of that messing around (even having a small impact on your credit rating), you would save £2.84 per week (very car salesman, I know!!) and lose all hand back rights. This again is on a full priced car - when discounted, everything else comes tumbling down too.Hope you can follow my numbers JRW.I promise you, I fully understand PCP, better than most motor dealers in fact - I get to hear all of the confused versions of how it works from customers who have seen the light and are looking at a Kia this time


OMG, you still don't get it....The deposit contribution comes off the invoice pre sale and has nothing to do with the PCP - it is simply free money to entice you to take the PCP - you can sell it how you want but the PCP is still more interest than a bank loan however you sell it.

Option 1 - You have a £10k PCP from a dealer at 6.4% and get a £2k discount for taking it.....If you kept this PCP you would still have £10k to pay back on the PCP at 6.4% - That is £306 a month or £11016 total payable in finance.

Option 2 - You have a £10k PCP from a dealer at 6.4% and get £2k discount for taking it......If you pay off this PCP within 14 days you will occur no charges (just daily interest....say £10). You get to keep the £2k discount (at this point it isn't part of the finance calculations at all as this has already come off the invoice before you have paid a penny). You either pay the £10k PCP balance in cash or you take a loan - Sainsburys do £10k at 2.9% which is £290.20 a month or £10447.20 total payable in finance.

So option 2 means you are £568.80 better off for taking and paying off the PCP rather than sticking with it as you get the £2k with either option....ie its a DISCOUNT off the car at time of purchase and nothing to do with the finance, rather a discount for taking out the finance hence the phrasing DEPOSIT contribution. It forms no part of the loan calculations at all.

I know that the £568 is better in my bank account than a finance companies (3 years VED for my Golf R or 2 years insurance)....do this over a greater amount or longer term and the savings will obviously be much greater. All for the sake of 5 mins completing a loan application online and 5 mins phoning the finance company to cancel the PCP. This is the sort of thing that HUKD is all about.


Not sure how I can make this any simpler to be honest. Obviously if you are sold on PCP and want a new car every 2-4 years then you just keep the PCP....however if you have the money to pay it off or intend on keeping the car and pocket the extra discount whatever incentive the relevant dealer is offering at any given month on any given model then its a no brainer to pay it off and fund from elsewhere.

My point is that if you weren't intending on taking out PCP but there is an incentive attached to it then its a no brainer to take it out and pay it off with no loss of incentive regardless of how you are funding the redemption.

Never buy a 1.6 l car, bad cars that come with lots of problems


I agree with this guy...... to a certain extent. A heavy car like this one with a 1.6 petrol engine will cost more to run than a 1.6 Diesel which would be an ideal size engine for the weight of the car. Personally I'd rather get a 1.9 Diesel or 1.8 petrol upwards for piece of mind.

I don't care what Which or What Car say about how reliable they are after that warranty expires it's like jumping out of a plane without a parachute!I know this isn't completely relevant but I used to have an Alfa 155, when it needed new spark plugs (I think it had 8 rather than a normal 4) it was £200 or something crazy just for them before fitting. I doubt the repair bills are any cheaper these days. Not just the cost but very inconvenient too.This is a great looking car though. Alfa Romeo sound like they may be making F1 engines next year.


Their prices are in line with most main dealers... insane.

However, there are lots of trusted Alfa Indies who are very reasonable. There is more of an enthusiastic community with these cars.

Just to add to the list of people who paid off finance early. It was all very straight forward, no hassle at all. Got my car through Drive the Deal and they were great, all happened exactly as advertised.
Othen you are getting confused beween PCP and PCH. It certainly is possible to do what multiple people are all stating.
PCP is not a rental. It is a purchase agreement with a deferred balloon payment. This can be settled at any time and contributions towards this by the lender or manufacturer will NOT be reclaimed. As a car dealer I know this for a fact. As previously stated the majority of buyers do not settle early so the interest charged compensates for the contribution. Those who can settle early however benefit.

I've received manufacturer discount on a PCP deal (Ford) but actually went on to complete the whole deal paying off the ballooon payment....but I could have paid off all monies owing at any time during the contract...you just ask for a settlement figure from the finance company and pay it off. T


Thank you for that. I'm still not convinced it would work with a PCP: If I rent a £25,000 car under a PCP (so I never own the car) and get a £5,000 deposit contribution, then I decide I don't want to rent the car the day after I drive it away and pay the finance company what I owe for the rental plus what the car would be worth in 3 years' time - will I will still be allowed to keep the £5,000? I can see that might work with a HP agreement where the car is being used to secure the loan, but not under a rental plan like a PCP.
Perhaps I'm just too old fashioned.

Just had the following email from drive the deal...

We are emailing to advise you that our quoted discounts for Jaguar XE and Jaguar XF are only going to be available for factory ordered cars for another few days. To place a factory order for your chosen specifcation and take advantage of the discounted quote that you have seen on our website over the last two weeks, you will need to place an order before Monday 31 July, and prefereably this week in order to be certain of getting the deal. After that time, the price will be substanitally more expensive as we will be unable to place further factory orders at the current quoted discount.

During August, we will then be able to offer you some stock cars at the current discounted prices, but if you do wish to choose your own specification and have your car built to order for September delivery at the current quoted price, you will need to confirm your order by Monday 31st July at the latest, and preferably this week to be certain of getting the deal.

The time deadline has been imposed by the dealer who has been accepting our customers’ orders at these discounts, and we can only place further orders at these prices while the dealer will still accept them. It is possible they will run out of factory build slots this week, but we suspect they will accept an order placed over the weekend.

We have sent you this email because you recently took a quote from our website for a new Jaguar XE or Jaguar XF, we hope you have found it relevant and useful.

With kind regards,

Broker Team

That was just before the "fix". The one in my old Mondeo lasted 9 years and I was able to change it myself in 10 minutes as it was at the front-top of the engine. Seems he wasn't alone: forums.moneysavingexpert.com/sho…816

This is the petrol variant so a moot point to be discussing.

For those who said my criticism of this car is ridiculous, just to let you know i found and posted a "similar" deal. Passat TFSI, brand new, £15,911 on the road. Currently at 800 degrees and climbing.

hotukdeals.com/dea…356

Probably wont "beat" the heat of this because for some people the Merc badge trumps the wrong spec, but to me the Passat @ £15,911 makes for a more honest package than this at £21K odd.

Its the wrong car at the right price. They're being sold off cheap, but even at that you can buy a year old one on autotrader for £16K+ from a dealer, meaning a trade price of £14K, which suggests they're unloved on the used market too.

That is probably the sweet spot of price/spec/engine in the range from memory of looking at them when they first came out. I looked at leasing one last year (can't remember if it was longitude or limited) but at the time they were giving yetis away so went for one of those for the family wagon instead. Happy with the yeti but a renegade in the right colour looks a million times better.

I mean sure some folk aren't bothered about speed and output but it's … I mean sure some folk aren't bothered about speed and output but it's just dead money imo buying a car with a sub-par engine and doesn't make sense, you're only going to get bored with the lack of power and struggle in some cases to travel up certain roads.I know it's non-comparable but my missus father had a Susuki SUV, similar to this and he sold it after the lack of power, he now has a Kuga.I've always wanted a Merc A-class and took the A180d out for a test drive, after that I've been looking at other cars. It was just terrible performance wise. Looks were gorgeous but I didn't see the point in buying it just for the looks when it couldn't even give me a bit of umph. I got in my fiesta and it was obvious that the engine was not the best.Again, non-comparable examples I know but it shows how you can go to loving a car due to it's looks and then hating it due to it's power output.I suppose being petrol it won't be that bad but It just doesn't seem worth it for £15k.



I may have made it sound worse than it is, there will be very few roads it will struggle to get up, 150 nm of torque is a reasonable amount and as it's naturally aspirated ( a rarity) so you aren't waiting for a turbo to kick in to get your tourque. I think your comparisons are fine and highlight an important point when spending that much money, do the research, take a test drive, be aware of what your getting. My opinion of the engine is just that, my opinion, and some people will think it's more than adequate and some people will think it's awful. I just thought it was below average. But if someone spent about £15k on the last new car they bought (in the last few years) then I think they would be pleasantly surprised by what this offers.

It is ideal for me because my journey to work is a 14 mile round trip, and I manage to do it all electric. I am usually getting +99.9mpg on a daily basis, and 86mpg as an average over the last 3 weeks. I have done 250 miles, with 200 on electric only. What this means is that the 50 or so miles driven on petrol, the economy was around 20 mpg, however, these were mainly done in sport + mode pushing it, when I was having some fun seeing what it could do. A more representative mpg is probably the delivery mileage which was 140 miles away, and he got 47 mpg for mainly motorway miles, although the delivery driver said he was not driving it particularly efficiently.Mine is costing me £350/month including vat on a 3+23 lease and this includes road fund tax over the life of the lease. i got the C350e Saloon Sport Premium model.I'm very happy with it, it a beautiful car, lovely to drive, and has a few driver aids like assisted breaking and haptic accelerator pedal, but must admit I am disappointed with the lower than advertised range - I get 14-15 miles off a full charge, but there is still 22% charge when the 14 miles are complete, and it is still possible to get another 3-4 miles of electric only but only in slow moving traffic. So I am guessing this is where Mercedes get their 19 miles range.On a full charge on e mode it is still quite nippy, and gets away from the lights quicker than most. Flick it into sport mode and nothing can touch it! The "350" refers to the 3.5 litre engine which is the equivalent power of the 2 litre engine plus the boost it gets from the electric motor. In electric only, on a motorway I can get it up to around 50-60 mph before the petrol engine kicks in, I then push it up to 70-80 mph using petrol then cruise or coast in electric to maintain the speed around 70 mph. I plan to penny pinch on my daily commute, so I can have some fun when I get the chance! The transition between electric and petrol drive is seamless and it only noticeable when the rev counter needle flicks up.I had a diesel before and was only getting around 45 mpg from that. A friend of mine has a 2 litre petrol BMW and tells me he only gets 33 mpg from that for a similar commute to mine.I got mine via https://www.contracthireandleasing.com/personal/car-leasing/mercedes-benz/c-class/ although checking now the best price is around £365. I kept an eye on the prices after I ordered and saw an AMG estate for about £325/month, which I would have gone for if I hadn't already placed the order.If you are leasing, watch out for the admin fee in the upfront payment, which was £300 for me. I went through Yes Leasing, although the finance was with Mercedes. Also watch out as the road fund tax is over £400 for this model, and not all leasing companies include this in the rental.I have ordered a charge point from https://www.chargedev.co.uk/domestic-application which cost £149 supplied and fitted.Insurance was £720 for me, but I have no no-claims because I have just come from a company car and had to make a claim a year ago due to car park damage (scraped wheel arch) from an unknown third party.I would recommend it as a good all rounder which would suit the shorter commute and run around town, but would not recommend it for the long distance motorway driver.

Great deal. Shame it's only got 16 inch wheels though. Engine is good. Better than the likes of the Renault 1.5 or the Hyundai 1.7. Absolutely appalling fuel economy. With the Merc you can easily get 60+mpg.

As said, take out finance, pay it off within 14 days. Finance isn't with the dealer so they won't care or probably even know. I did the same with my Golf R last year, as did my dad and as is my friend who's just ordered a gtd.

It's a sad fact that many people do not realize how short sighted most new BMW and Audi drivers are. This terrible affliction means many drive a foot off your back bumper and can't see traffic ahead. If you pull over, they blindly carry on. Sad fact is they aren't posers, but need bigger wheels and tyres to help avoid accidents created by their condition. I find they like white cars, the traditional colour of superiority.

Most of the deals on DTD are based on getting finance via the manufacturer. There is normally an increase if you finance yourself or pay cash (which is what i want to do). You will see this is the case for most makes if you price up a new car through them. Special offers (cars available quickly) may differ but i doubt it. As regards the PA miles I don't know.

They don't list the engine for the rapid only the old one. It's listed for the polo but the figures are just copied and pasted. I'm very sceptical that they would get 130hp out of the post 2015 engine. But I guess if they can't they will refund.
