These threads are funny. 1. You have to be stupid to pay list price on cars - List on this is £34845 - It can be bought through DriveTheDeal for £28682 so quite why you are quoting the list price when making a comparison is beyond me 2. If you want a "£34k" car for something affordable then you can't afford it in the first place 3. Why would everyone have to have a "£34k" car on finance? Savings aren't worth jack at the minute so why waste money on finance when you could just pay for it instead of having money sat in a bank doing nothing? 4. If you did need finance for your "£34k" car are you implying you have zero to put down as a deposit? What are you driving now? You have zero savings whatsoever? If so refer to point 2 where you can't actually afford a "£34k" car 5. If you have to finance your car and didn't want a 4 year lease have you heard of PCP? 6. If you bought this outright instead of paying £16k lease fees (plus any over mileage and damage costs at the end) I think the Tig R Line spec with 32k on the clock at 4 years old would be worth more than £12k to sell making this lease deal not worth it.
I'm currently lease-less if there is such a word mine went back 5 weeks ago and I've managed by hiring a cheap car for a couple of weekends . I think the cheap leases are gone for now what with all the car factories shutting down for a couple of months it isn't going to get better anytime soon. I have seen an insignia sri vx-line nav 1.6d for £216 a month over 3 years with £1300 down works out at £8800 over 3 years so not too bad but not in stock so probably going to be too long a wait for me. I've also been looking at the second hand route and I'm shocked at the amount of interest you pay on these pcp deals
You seem to be a little bitter towards people who appropriate their money differently to you. When we took our last lease out, it was a great offer, and I estimated that what I was going to pay for the lease was going to be less than the depreciation. Not really sure why folk don't understand this. As for having a new one every 3 years, it's nothing to do with being a car snob or impressing people, it's to do with having pretty much hassle free motoring for 3 years, then sending the car back and letting someone else have the problems that start to crop up after this time. People seem to be hung up on 'owning' a car. Ultimately, having a car, whichever method you go about it is going to be a regular outgoing. It's down to the individual to decide what they want, and the cheapest way to achieve this.
Lol, these threads are unreal. Absolutely love the comments though. The thing about driving a ford to be able to shop at Waitrose is probably the best so far but I feel better are to come (lol)
We bought a seat ibiza tourer DSG a few years back. £13,500 it cost, paid £4000 upfront, £4000 at end and £219 per month over 42 months. It had a turbo go and a gearbox issue, both around 38 months. Those were fixed under goodwill warranty but then the engine light kept coming on around 46 months, same issue again. Estimate to fix was around £2000 to £3000. Value of car at the end of that was £3700. Im now leasing a Tiguan, £30000 model amortised cost £250 per month. No worries about warranty, no worry about losing £10,000 after 4 years and a significantly better car in all respects. £40 per month more. I couls of bought a new car after the ibiza, but then another 4 years of £220 per month and finding £4,000 at the end and try the pot look warranty gamble. No thanks. I need somthing reliable cos of our commute so second hand would be a gamble. For me leasing is risk free for the same amount of monthyl aas it would to buy a car. I also had a focus, had it for 12 years, cost £10,000 at the end of the line 1st gen, bargain. was great for 8 years, but then annual repairs were around £800 - £900 every year. So the other extreme but I would estimate annual cost of that car was still around £150 - £175 per month. So maybe £75 per month saving on the focus over a constant £250 per month. But who's to say I wont get a ibiza experience rather than a focus experience?
It’s a head unit that runs android, so effectively having a tablet for a car stereo
What's the Android element of it?
Glad someone snapped it up. It was a bargain.
only showing the one for £218, used one for £71 not coming up when adding to basket so I guess OOO - shame as I wanted one!
Academic now as it's sold out
Lol... Not being as good as another don't make you bad at your job... Just means someone else is better (angel) . May have just been my luck!
I negotiate a lot in my job, some reasonable numbers. Work with a large amount of suppliers and I used to think I was rather good at negotiating. My wife, far superior than me at most things, is also rather good, worked for a large company where her direct annual spend just under 200 million a year with suppliers. Might consider employing you as we are obviously rather bad at our jobs :D :D Good work though, I saw another R line today, as our one comes to the end in October, might have to consider another Tiguan, might get the LW base one, need a bigger boot.
There's always room for movement, hence, why it can always be negotiated. Initially I was going to get an SEL at this price, but with a bit of homework, I managed to get the R-Line at this price.
The numbers are the numbers. Sometimes on these there isn't much movement on the numbers.
Got to know how to negotiate... ;) It was ordered through G2L. Car was also delivered in 2 weeks 8) . However, it wasn't 10k it was 9k. But that wouldn't/shouldn't make that much of a difference.
Just seen this comment... The only oil it ever used was when it got serviced. I never topped it up. It was the CR engine. The previous PD I had only ever user 500-1000ml of oil between services (every 18-20k). I was surprised. The 1.4TSI 180bhp my ex had though was a different story - 1 litre every 1k! However, I digress.....The reason I came on to here to reply was because my BMW has an issue with the charging unit which I suspect may have been caused by the storms as there was a power surge and outage for 2 hours and my charging box at home was fused and the car then refused to charge. BMW didn't have any loaners (surprise surprise, when do dealers ever have loaners) so I had an Enterprise hire car, firstly a 1.6TDI Leon DSG which I did 600 miles in going to Glasgow and back and got 63mpg which in my opinion isn't too shabby as I wasn't hanging around. This was replaced last night, ironically with a 2018 Kia Optima '3' 1.7crdi with DCT. I have to admit it is a lovely car, very comfortable seats and electric and heated everything but doing the same journey from the hire garage that I did in the Leon (and got 67mpg), I got 39mpg on a car that is claimed to do up to 74.3mpg. That is 52% of the claimed economy! Most of this 35 mile journey now has 50mph roadworks so I would dread to see what it would be like on a 70mph run! I think this is probably in part to the woeful gearbox. I have just had to have a look on the Kia website to see if it is actually a dual clutch system as it is that slow.....dangerously slow. Pulling up to a junction at an island slowing down and then seeing a gap to go, there was a good 1-2 second delay until the gearbox caught up and changed down a gear, so much so I thought the engine had cut out. I look after an old 2003 Jag XJ for a friend who is out of the country a lot and even this isn't that slow at reacting to a drive change. They really need to put some serious work into that gearbox. I did get slightly better mpg this morning - 41mpg. Overall the car is lovely and I would seriously consider one but they need to sort out that engine and gearbox. It is much better than the Hyundai I had but still annoying that everything in the menus can only be done when in park! Dam Koreans and health and safety.
no link, no deal. Going by description, expensive for a rubbish 1.4 COLD
Yes, if only they were all as honest as VW. Here are the figures for current Passat diesels;
Probably be best not to tell us how many litres of oil it burnt through whilst returning that fab MPG. After all it doesn’t cost anything, so has no bearing on running costs, and it’s brilliant for the planet :D p.s. I eagerly await the ‘my VW TDi engine was the only one on Earth that didn’t guzzle oil’
Exactly, they are all at it. The only car I have ever driven that gets close to the figures is ironically my old Octavia VRS and I could quite regularly hit 57mpg on my commute which from memory was about the figure they quoted. Renault and Hyundai are massively out compared to VW. Hybrids are impossible to measure. I can get 41mpg on some tanks and 75mpg on other tanks (calculated from the receipts) as it all depends on the length of journey and how often you can charge. It would be possible to run one and not use any petrol at all and still be able to heat or cool it (y)
The should have rounded the top left and right corners of the windshield ;(
JW always have decent prices on cool sets
Looks more like a 2CV!
Remember to sign up for JL account and loyalty scheme before buying. I keep getting £5 off next £50+ spend offers.
Looks more like a 2cv than a Beetle!
Indeed there isn't because I am correct in this instance. Wrong - nothing to do with reading about it. Either your car has a fundamental flaw or you are not driving it correctly. Even another HUKD user with the same car as you achieves 38mpg, which is more akin to what you ought to be getting. When have I ever said, let alone portrayed that? Please do show evidence. Still awaiting a response to my last direct message to you on this thread...
trust me there is no point arguing with him. if he read it on the internet somewhere then its gospel. as long as it wasn't some one on this site telling him something, because on this site, he is the only one who know anything about cars or lease deals. so best just to move along to be honest.
Yeah, my bad. I didn't notice the 20% Vat wasn't included. I thought it was too good to be true, especially the rline prices! Makes sense now...

No - please reread what I wrote. I personally wouldn't abuse finance regs, but many do. I wouldn't also buy a new car in cash, but get a PCH. They're mutually exclusive events.
Only if the tyre pressure warning comes up hence why I had to get one tyre changed and realised they were all stuck on and coincidently all four were gone the next day.
Lol never checked your tyre pressures in years ? XD
Guess we have to many ford drivers.
You don't want to draw attention to your wheels.
Definitely agree. I was going to get this for my wife as she loves beetles and has a ‘66 in the garage. But she said it is too square in the windscreen area. Too upright
I think this is very unfair statement. Out of 1167 parts in this set only 5 or 6 are exclusively in this set. The rest can be found in different sets. https://brickset.com/sets/10252-1/Volkswagen-Beetle
Me too! That was my tenth birthday present... Still have it and the manual + box cover
This is a great deal, thank you.
right in the nostalgia. I had this. you could make a keep out of it too. https://www.technic-dialog.de/Homepage/modelle/24-9.jpg
Shouldn't they technically change their name to "tree fiddy" land now?
Just missing a few clouds of smoke...
Whose arguing? We are talking about the Beetle because the thread is titled "Volkswagen Shirt".
Why are you even arguing about the beetle? It's a transporter on the shirt.
Yes and No. The VW Beetle is the best selling car of a single version/mark. The Corolla etc figures above are for all the different versions of Corolla that's ever existed. I think we are on the 11th generation now. The original type 1 Beetle was manufactured all the way up to 2003 in Mexico. 6 years after the new Beetle was introduced.
Have a look for the BVRLA booklet on this. Also look at the Passat Alltrack thread on this site from around 2 years ago.
Hello, I havent leased a car but like to lease a one. I have question from you helpful people? have you all ever had to pay extra fees when you returned the car (such as scratch in the pain or little dent etc) please advice. I heard some leasing companies give you a cheaper deal and try to get more money when you return. Thank you.
Arrived this morning, totally filthy as it was driven from Crewe. Will take somne getting used to the 1.4 DSG as opposed to the 2.0 Manual Alltrack, had a quick scout about in it and it does feel like a slight step down, but it is nice. The wife will like the DSG though so thats the main thing.
Here you go... Noticed the back is a bit of a magnet for dirt, the top of the bumper is filthy now. I think this is better to drive than the Alltrack, for some reason it just feels nicer. Definitely made the right choice on this one. Hope you enjoy yours next week.
I was going to post one earlier but decided against putting pics of my driveway on the internet. I'll be out in it tomorrow so will take some then. I got a set of rubber mats for it included in the deal and have just put those in - it comes with carpet mats but I prefer the waterproof ones. The carpet ones can go back in to make it look nice when it goes back. It's been hailstoning here so hope the paint is okay ;(
I think it’s best to try all three. The last three cars I’ve purchased have been cheapest on Carwow. Only by a £100 or so, but still. (Cheaper than Carfile / Drive the deal).
Probably not due to the caveat saying not applicable on e-golf. Try TL Darby in Burton (Sean Bunting I have dealt with there) or give carfile.net a call or email (jl at carfile dot net) as Jonathan is really helpful.
As for drivethedeal, they weren’t willing to take the order with Scrappage bonus
June deadline has been extended due to number of orders. s kust spoken to vw uk and they have confirmed Scrappage for golf e is £5500 and what they have on their website is typo. Still not 100% convinced but will go with dealer that has offered £5500. dtd worked out at 9k discount on standard golf e without scrappage
You wont get an e golf on scrappage unless you can land a stock car as the lead time is past June deadline for scrappage. e-golf is £4k scrappage. carwow is mediocre at best for deals and the likes of DriveTheDeal and carfile blow them out the water.
Depends what you smoke when you're in one normally...
I still have no idea what this is and I watch Star Trek Discovery every week. Phasers set to stunning? Just found out it's a mood light. Not even full sized campervan. Chizz, cold for me.
Phasing? wow! so I assume this mean this model VW camper van will move in and out of our current reality. :)
I was gonnna say can new members be forced to take a couirse on how amazon prduct listings work, but lo and behold theyve been here 5 odd years, so i suggest a site wide initiative for all members.
Link changed, Although temp out of stock it's still available for the listed price.
Had the car serviced today and my mechanic ex VW technician has confirmed this oil is excellent quality and is suitable for lots of different vehicles. I appreciate everyone's concerns about whether this is suitable for my vehicle. I posted this deal to help others who use a similar grade. I did not claim it's a universal oil it's down the each individual person to check compatibility. Regardless of which it's good to see people discuss a technical topic such as this and personally have found the information posted by other HUKD members to be informative and beneficial. Thanks guys.
That's only that it's up to VWspec....doesn't mean it's the right viscosity....you can get all viscosities up to that spec 502.00. Vw recommend 5w-30 long life fully synthetic Castrol Edge on their site for newer cars..even 0w-20 for some models At that price it's basic/budget oil,you get what you pay for. And it's not suitable for DPF cars
The spec of the oil VW502.00. and perfectly fine for my car. It's been recommend by VW based on my reg number. If any issues arise due it being the incorrect oil I have a potential legal case.
10w-40 in a 2014 car?.....it's thicker than say 5w-30,maybe ok for summer use/warmer climate country. I use 10w-40 in my 20 year old cars and it mostly semi/part synthetic,can't say I've ever saw fully in that grade. Most cars I have serviced from early 2000 onwards would mostly be 5w-30 or thinner....using 10w-40 probably wouldn't kill anything but might not get where it should as quick as it should on a very cold,cold start....my mate has a 2015 diesel Golf here right now,he says 5w-30.
every new vw is 5-30 fully synthetic this is not the right oil for your car this is more like water than anything lol
He's not offering a good deal on a Jag / Audi though, but it is a good deal on a brand new Polo GTI - i dont think this is top gear and which car is better. Its the best offer on a POLO GTI ....... and although i prefer Ferraris, this gets a hot!!!!
Why the hell have all these lease companies started using big deposits. Whatever happened to the usual 3 months down? Of course it's to make the headline monthly figures look low. What's next? £1.99 per month, after £5000 down? Btw, this deal is quite poor I'd say. The same car was similar monthlies a while back but with only 3 months down.
As I’ve said on a parallel post be careful, some of the cars offered by this company are not new.
Also, 1.8 TSI was available in the old model and not in the new model.
The description in the link states 3 door. The new model is only available as a 5 door.
Agree.....my dad has a galaxy 130 ps and done more miles than space shuttle and always had this oil in in so i think the theory of chocolate camshaft cheap oil is NOT this oil as his is sweet as a nut and so is my 115ps which have never seen anything else so it's probably the crap 150ps motor that is the problem me thinks (y)
The PD130 engine was definitely the best of the bunch , even better remapped ; )
Inlaws have a passat pd130 with 310k, its on its second auto box now
Well, to be fair I did get 211K out my PD150 engine , so I can't really complain.
It's an issue on all the PD engines, thats why they recommend using decent oil. I've also never used the longlife service intervals and change it every 10k or 12 months. The quantum oil, which is what VW use, is only £20. Plenty of PD engines last well over 200k miles.
Presumably that was with a larger upfront payment and hatchback manual. £8,172 for 10k a year estate DSG is not far off from the best deals there were. Add inflation, £ falling relative to Euro and it looks even better.
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.
Explain please? Over 2 years with 20k miles how are you paying less. 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 £8k I strongly suspect you can't. Leases are cheaper than PCP, and you don't have the problem of selling the thing
although i haven't had one for a few years a company car was a worse con taxwise, for private use you had to pay your tax on it @ %20 of retail value, same again if you got fuel so say 3 year renewal you paid tax on %60 of its retail value, insane tax ripoff.
If you pay the inflated price yes, but stupid is as stupid does
I personally wouldn't believe anything that VW tells people ! (cheeky)
So you like throwing away money? This car will cost you more in depreciation over those 2 years than this deal! Meanwhile you have £30k of your hard earned cash tied up in a car.
Who can afford a car without being in debt
You'd rather have something old that you lose money on rather than something new that you lose money on? I owned my last car and it cost me more in depreciation than my current lease will cost...and the car is twice as expensive and twice as new. Your loss buddy. Our gain
