    Hey cjp2k! What do you think of your F10 520d? I was offered a pre-reg zero miles 520d M Sport with A LOT of extras for 28k (40k+ list). I was very VERY tempted - beautiful car... But, bigger than I need and no 4x4... So 8V A3 it is... My wife wanted the BeeEm so I'm in the doghouse... Sorry guys - I know, off topic... 😖

    Thanks guys, I have a appointment with my local dealer tomorrow so lets see what they say, if they have no deal, I will give kings lynn a call,

    With regards to the 520d, I love the car, it’s the efficient dynamics model which means it’s a manual, the car would suit a auto more, but other than that its great, relatively quick, big (much bigger than my old 8p) and loaded with spec, it was an ex demo and has some crazy options, VDC, heated steering wheel, powered boot, elec seats, BMW individual wood trim, xenons, nav etc, I wouldn’t buy a new one as this lost nearly £18,000 in 7 months and 6000 miles, before I picked it up!!

    i can say, Blackburn, Preston, Bolton, Manchester all wouldn't knock a penny off. That's why I did the deal with Kings Lynn.

    bmw is ugly, they discount those 520d's heavily as they struggle to shift them - plus itll spend most of winter on the driveway

    So would people recommend the long drive to negotiate a deal at kings Lynn? Should I see what's the best deal is without a trade in first?

    up to you. for me it wasn't worth the 280 mile round trip to save 2% and I have the convenience of dealing a local dealership that's about 4-5 miles away in the same town

    I had an email newsletter from Jardine Motors yesterday (one of their branches is my local dealership) saying they will match any quote from any another dealership - I thought this was quite good as I'm having to travel 100 miles plus to get my S3. Thought might be worth posting and testing for anyone about to place an order.

    Probably won't work for us as our cars are now built and we can't really back out! Or would be crazy to do so at this point!

    I didn't mean for me. It's too close and I'd lose my £1k deposit etc. I'm far too excited about getting it. 2 weeks (ish). I meant for anyone else who may live in north west and buying from a dealership miles away.

    I know! I keep trying to think of things I did 2 weeks ago to help me realise just how close it is!

    I like it when it feels like I did something yesterday and then realise I actually did it as long ago as I now have to wait for the car!

    Perhaps this may help potential buyers out there, select-automotive broker in Leatherhead, Surrey, claim to be offering 9% discount on any new S3, 14 week lead, couldn't see the LED headlight option after registering and configuring though.

    Wow that's some big discount! With DTD and orange wheels etc are the discounts and prices only if you take out a PCP finance deal? Would I not be able to use these brokers if I was just paying by cash?
