This isn't bad if you want a new golf R for 2 years. Depreciation will come cost more than this. They are a great car. Was gutted when mine went back (I got a £149 a month deal but I won't rub it in ).

Taking into account your monthly repayment (assuming you didn't have £30k cash up front), your deposit and the depreciation. Please break down for me how you could buy this car, pay the monthly repayments (with interest) and sell it, all costing you less than £8kI strongly suspect you can't. Leases are cheaper than PCP, and you don't have the problem of selling the thing


Let me do that for you...

IF you get 20% off that's 28k. A PCP over 4 years with a 2k deposit and 10k balloon would be £400 a month at 4% ( if you're lucky enough to be prime)

Total repayments over 2 years = 9600 plus your 2k that's 11600. But you still don't own it. You can't VT it, you're not halfway on a PCP. So if you settled the loan (you'd need the cash, or to sell to a dealer), you'd also have to factor the depreciation. For you to sell at trade, it's probably going to net you £22k if your lucky. Still that's a 6k loss..

Total cost to you for 2 years is £11,600 in repayments. That's assuming you can sell it, assuming you can get the 20% discount in the first place and assuming the used prices don't fall through the floor. I've been kind and assumed you could settle the finance with the money you sell it for.

Meanwhile a lease costs 8k over the same period and you don't have worry about the used market going south.

I needed the car by a specific date so didn't push too hard on price, but probably could have gone further. There are websites where you can play dealers off against one another.It doesn't work so well if you are too specific - you need to buy the car the dealer wants/needs to sell, which is essentially the same with these lease deals.

The deal wasn't pulled due to error or wrong price @uzy89 it was a limited stock offer so once stock run out deal closed.

Excess mileage is a sizeable 11.19p per mile, so makes sense to set quote to 10,000 miles per year.

UPDATE - They initially said that they could delay delivery until March (when my current lease expires) but they cannot, January is earliest.

I know similar deals have been on and off last couple of years but with weaker (10% down post-Brexit) pound, I have convinced myself that the next lot of car deals may not be quite as cheap.

Yeah its only £500 to double the mileage, and oh how i'm looking forward to pretty much finite motoring costs for two years.
Good deal CYB for a very good all rounder of a car that'll do everything except impress the neighbors (until you mention the price).
You just need to add insurance, fuel, maybe a service(Every18k?), tyres and thats it for 2years risk free motoring(leasing comp pay the £185 tax per year). With a reasonable excess mile charge of 10p peeps can budget how much going over 10k will be quiet easily...but still no love.

Pretty sure there arn't going to be any more deals like that again, that was a clearance of stock deal, which got messed up and vwfs offered out as new build too until the mistake was rectified and it was quickly closed off - some people did get bargains beyond belief though yes.

Chances of that happening again, as close to zero as you can get.

This is a very good deal, its 100 -200 per month less than most places, and this is the my17 model with an extra 2k of options built in , awesome deal if you are in the market for one.

VW tried there hardest to get a better price , but all they could do was 285 @ 9+23 so this is cheaper than direct even

If you are waiting for a better deal to come out i think it might be a while, if you are hoping to get this car for the price of a peugeot or a kia then just give up now as it won't happen, i assume people thing its cold because you can get a 'car' for less. *classifications of a car may vary

It's up to you to prove that the car was serviced with the correct parts and fluids as shown on a detailed invoice by whoever did the service. it's important to mention that if you do not service at a franchised dealer you miss out on Technical Service Updates carried out during franchised services. Manufacturers are not expected to trace the keeper of every car for these and if you miss them your warranty might be voided. You also lose any 'goodwill' outside of the warranty.

Good luck with what ever you choose to do.

I haven't back-pedalled at all. I've always said that a manufacturer WILL void a warranty if they find out you've gone to some random garage that has not followed the correct service procedure and used the correct parts and/or consumables. I've also said that a lease company will have in their T&Cs that you go to a franchise dealer to have it service, as in the end of the day, it's their vehicle and they want to maximise the value of the car when they sell it on.

You need to get facts in check: whilst the ‘Block Exemption’ that a man … You need to get facts in check: whilst the ‘Block Exemption’ that a manufacturer can’t void a standard three year warranty if you get the car serviced by a non franchised dealer exists, they can demand you show evidence that it was done to manufacturer standards with the right parts. So the easiest way is to get the car serviced by a franchise. And that can really pay off if the car develops a fault out of warranty because you’ll probably get some goodwill, which is really the manufacturer backing the dealer to conform to the Limitations Act of 1980, that sets out six years as the usual period in which actions for breach of contract.But, if you’ve had the car serviced by grease monkeys from Kwik-Fit, the manufacturer can claim that the fault was caused by them. If the car is on a long warranty, like five years or more as typified by Toyota or Hyundai, then that is a probably a contract between you and the manufacturer that you get it serviced by his franchises and in return they warrant the car.There’s obviously a bit of latitude, but you always stand a much better chance against a manufacturer if you have always had the car serviced by the dealers. And in these disputes, you legally have to start with the dealer who supplied the car in the first place, though a dealer who has been regularly servicing it will probably help.



They cannot legally blanket void the warranty on the whole car because you didn't get it serviced to their specifications, they can only void the warranty for parts of the vehicle affected by your use of non-specified parts even if they can prove you didn't service to their spec - you don't seem able to grasp this fact.

Burden of proof always lies with the dealership or UK representative of the marque. It is up to them to prove you didn't do things their way, not the other way around if they were going to try and find a way to not honour the warranty.

A failed rear cluster, battery, shocks, paint defect, interior trim, or indeed any part of the car unaffected by the work that should be conducted during the correct service schedule would have it's warranty intact by the letter of the law.

Goodwill is a whole other kettle of fish and you really shouldn't bank on goodwill gestures given beyond the warranty unless you did stick with the franchised dealer for all your servicing (and even then it is not guaranteed - they are not obliged to give goodwill, they are only obliged to preserve your statutory rights). Goodwill gestures can be very costly as the goodwill usually extends to a large % of the cost of the parts only, so you'll still end up getting hammered by franchised workshop labour costs of £70-100 per hour.

You've been a bit light on facts - you initially claimed that the correct brand franchise had to do the service work to keep your warranty and were shown to be wrong and then back-pedaled rapidly when it was pointed out that you were wrong.

I like the understated of a powerful car family car or crossover - only exception is hatchbacks. I love a hot hatch to be a bit loud, loved my Honda Civic Type R (FN2) when it came out and the new one looks mental. Also got a soft spot for the Focus RS.



Sure the golf r looks understated which is great. The new Honda type r looks hideous and something from the 1990s and like it had crashed into Halfords

Agree the Golf r is expensive to buy. A decent spec one will be nearer £40K, also the similar but much nicer Audi s3 is about the same price but with options most people actually end up spending just over £40K less discount

While i love the Golf R - it's just to damn expensive in my opinion.. Plus a hot hatch at that speed needs to look like it would eat a new born baby, the Golf R is to subtle in my opinion.




Depends on how you define expensive....VWs are expensive in purely RRP terms, but if you are buying new at 12% discount (achievable) and p/xing (or even better, selling privately) for a very good retained value then depreciation suffered in your ownership term and it gets quite cheap next to the competition. It is for this reason that buying German cars new is quite popular and not as expensive as some people might think. The R is subtle, but I like the "wolf in sheep's clothing" approach.

Can see why you like that - i'm the same when people mod cars. I like the understated of a powerful car family car or crossover - only exception is hatchbacks.

I love a hot hatch to be a bit loud, loved my Honda Civic Type R (FN2) when it came out and the new one looks mental. Also got a soft spot for the Focus RS.

Does anyone have details of the excess mileage charges? I'd like to do the maths to work out whether I'd be better looking at a 5000/8000/10000 mile deal but can't see the information on the website?

I have an X5 and the ZF box in that (some 10 years old) is considerably better than the DSG fitted to the Caravelle (brand new as of two months ago) I drive at work. With flappy paddles, the DSG makes sense, because it's quicker than a standard auto, but in full auto guise, the DSG is erratic, gets muddled up a lot, and doesn't work anywhere near as well as the 6 speed ZF in my BMW. I'd be interested to see what VW come out with CVT wise. I had an A6 previous to the BMW and the CVT box in that was truly sublime.




Thats a Caravelle though which is a heavy Transporter which will likely be underpowered and the gearing wont be right for the mass it has to haul around. Stick it in a Golf though and its sublime.

With falling sales, disappointed customers and new gearboxes on the … With falling sales, disappointed customers and new gearboxes on the horizon there are quite a few VW deals knocking around at the moment. The deal might not be so bad, but its the car that's part of the problem.The DSG, (its is holding VW's customers from becoming repeat customers) might be OK for manual drivers who are iffy about autos but for auto drivers it will never be as smooth. I do not even think the DSGs are as quick or efficient as the ZF autos used in a number of other brands like Jaguars and BMW? I know VW are to introduce a selection of new DSG gearboxes and a CVT over next 2 years. With regard not wanting the manual again. Well, you buy a sporty car that you driver hard and its only fluid in upward changes. After that it become laggy, confused, it has to switch the preselect. If your gunning it then it has to engage its torque protection to stop the clutches getting mangled which means frustrating delays and hesitation from the gearbox. In a car like this, clutch down and in to 2nd might just be a lot better, after all this is the Mondeo man car of 201X's!

On checking with ala.co.uk you can get gap insurance for about 100 and with tyre cover 150. So if you buy over the two year that would be 300 and would include a new set of tyres just in case you manage to puncture them all accidentally !!!
