I've been into a dealership today to ask about this and they are 2008 model cars, but would be registered in 2009 (09 plates). There is a lump sum payment at the end of around 6000, but the car has a guarantee future value of this so you could give it back after 3 years to clear the outstanding finance.

The only colours available are Red, Black, and Bronze. The dealer couldnt find any silvers on the system. The Championship White is not available on this deal which I'm going for instead (worth talking to dealers about other packages if finance is the route you want to go down).

Think you (and Honda by the look of it) have forgotten to mention the final £6,026 payment to keep the car.
£19,275 less £6,085 deposit leaves £13,190.
Less 36x£199 (£7,164) still leaves £6,026 to pay.
Just an interest free offer at list, nothing special.

Edit, I see you have mentioned it (sorry) but it's still no great shakes.

BTW, hope you manage to keep it longer than the 3 weeks I managed to keep mine before 4 scroats decided they deserved it more than I did!

Cold less than £16000 at motorpoint recently when I looked at one

No one should ever pay list price for a car, doubly so now with bigger engined cars being so unpopular anyway and with the credit crunch, nothing at all is moving.

I wish it were true, bigger engines just aren't that much cheaper, I don't really care how much I save by having a piddly engine, I don't care I save 1 tree a year around the world, I want a big 3.0 litre+ so I can actually get from A-B before sun down.

I don't really get this attitude, oh he wants a bigger car he must have a complex.

If I want a bigger, powerful car it's because I appreciate everything that goes into them, their technical brilliance, their incorporation of bringing the limits to road cars, giving the driver the option to experience something previously reserved for the rich and race drivers, providing a non-pro with the ability to drive a real car, something you just don't get with a fiat panda, there's no brilliance, no sense of being a car just an engine in a box on wheels, I get no joy from driving small cars, I have no passion in driving a small car.

I don't buy good quality cars your your benefit, I buy them for mine and if I work bloody long and bloody hard to be able to buy the finer vehicles in production then I will, because it's just one aspect of my achievement!

Oh, for Gods sake grow up. My car's a 3.5 litre Honda and my wotsit's 10.5" so that argument doesn't cut it I'm afraid.
Incidentally I picked that up for £2k more than this deal (2k miles and 5 months old, £38k list price) and IMO, makes this deal pale into insignificance. No comparison.

I've posted the price from the web site. If you go to the dealer, the finance is on £17290, atleast thats what he was going to do for me. So its £4000 odd final payment if you wish to keep it. Like I said in the original post, the deal and the car is not for everyone but if you are in the market for one its a great offer around at the moment. I got to say though, if you can afford an extra 1000 go for the white it is absolutely stunning if I say so myself

I couldn't bring myself to be ripped off to the tune of £1000 to have it in white. Could the white paint actually cost £1k more than black paint?
I'm unconvinced.

In addition to the GT spec, you get LSD, white paint, white alloys, tinted rear screen as extras. Dont think there was anything else. Hopefully the second hand value will stay a little bit higher as well. I owned 2 black cars before and couldnt keep them clean - I bet the white will be just as bad but worth a shot. My last 2 cars (inc 04 type-r) have been silver so wanted a change. Didnt want red as I once bought a red car only for it to turn pink. I' know things have changed but I've never got over it

Personally wouldnt buy from Motorpoint but that sounds like a good price. I'm guessing thats a cash price though. If you were to go on finance they would charge some ridiculous APR so could work out more expensive and they only have it in black :).

You just got to go with the flow, oh my god you must, scientifically proven, A) have a complex and B) a small ***** or perhaps it's not those that have big cars who have the complex, maybe it's because they were never successful and could never afford good cars, they hate themselves and they blame society for it (after all they are owed a living) and as a result mock "wealth" and everything it "stands for" so they read the papers on their train to work and justify their inability to buy them by hiding behind this Global warming speal (little do they know that even aircraft emissions account for less than 5% of global warming) and blame people like use for bringing the world to its knees.

At least that's my theory!

1. If you havent got savings, or an existing car worth 6k or more then you shouldnt really be looking to buy a car costing this much. I'm fortunate enough to have built up the value of my cars, and be in a good job to be able to do this. No will never see that 6k (and the rest of my deposit) again probably, but thats a loss I can live with.

2. Like I said in a previous post, I've posted the deal exactly as it is on their web site - I thought that was the rules of this web site. If you go in have a chat with them they knock 2k off. Yes someone posted the car is available on Motorpoint with some miles on it for £15499, but the deal I've posted is promoting the finance on offer not how cheap you can get the car. If Motorpoint charges less than £2,000 interest over 3 years then you could compare the Honda deal to Motorpoint.

3. You can do 10,000 miles a year. Its quite easy to keep within 10,000 if your work is not too far, or you dont go up and down the country every week.

if you are buying the car and plan to keep it for years, why do car companies worry what mileage you are doing?

Original Poster

You are allowed to do whatever mileage you want. If you want to return the car at the end of the 3 year period instead of paying the outstanding balance and you'd done say 50,000 miles they would value your car differently.

The guaranteed future value is there to cover the outstanding debt. The car could be worth £10,000 after 3 years. You could either pay £6000 to own the car outright, or you could give the car back which would clear the £6000 debt, and you get a cashback of £4000 cashback to put on a new car.

If the car market gets worse and the value of the car is £2000 after 3 years, you would still get £6000 or whatever the guaranteed future value is.

Sure. Not a hope in hell. It could be worth £10k but I guarantee they will only say it's worth £6k. The valuations are subjective and not black and white. There will always be a sticking point, ie, downturn in the market, people moving away from hatches, looking for cheaper insurance groups............. Don't worry, they'll find a good reason to not pay you what it's worth.

Original Poster

Yes very true. My parents once had that problem on a Boxster. Wanted to trade the old for the newer shape. The dealer would only give the guaranteed future value but there were still going on Autotrader for a FEW grand more; dont remember exact numbers. In the end they paid the outstanding balance, sold the car private and then bought the new model. Hastle, but worth doing.

I work for Honda, And can get this car for £13000 due to a Connections membership.
