Anyone else BW48?

My car went to Panel shop on the 19th, paint shop on the 20th, assembly on the 21st and today is in QC.

Hoping for an early crimbo delivery but after speaking to my dealer he thinks January, which is a shame as I'm offshore until the 27th.

Fingers crossed.

14th would be nice. I would pick up on the 23rd when I get back. Perfect for Christmas.

Make for a


Make for a fantastic Christmas present.

Why would you pick up before Xmas? The value if you leave until 1 January or better still 1 March will be significantly higher.

I suppose that type of thing only really matters if you are planning on keeping the the car.
I am taking the car on PCP and will probably be looking for something else in a couple of years. Plus I'm not to fussed about having a 16 reg as I'm thinking about getting a private one for the wife (a sweetener for me getting the car )

It's not always about the money..enjoy the car asap

Indeed but I can hire one for a month rather than lose £1k+ I'm actually not needing a car much in February!

Won't lose 1k never have done and never will.
All my family car dealers doesn't really matter what time of year you buy your car that's why the plates change more often to avoid mad rushes etc

Sorry Rs1 ... I think you are either not in the uk or talking to the wrong people. The difference in value between a used 2013 '62' plate and a 2013 '13' plate can be significant. Look at Cap glasses to see.

In my opinion this is very regional depending on where you live depends on what you will get for car...either way I don't care just want car asapmoney doesn't matter.

Money doesn't matter?? Agree Health and Education and love and a few other things are more important than money but why throw it away??
Agree there are variations in price but same principle applies wherever you are in UK.

My point about losing £1k relates to registering a new car within a few weeks of a milestone date where values change. Anyone will tell you that in uk these key dates are year change and reg plate change. For whatever reasons 1 March is the biggest change in value according to many pundits.

If my car was at dealer in mid December I would probably wait until 1 January if I could. I don't need my RS3 in February ( well 17 onwards would be nice) but I have no intention of losing £1k plus/minus due to my impatience. Its personal choice and I just point out the facts. If dealer offers a bigger discount to hit their sales/bonus target maybe.

I'm not that bothered losing a bit considering I got nearly 3k off list price of car in the end which was great...happy days

Rgbargee too obsessed with the money.. I say enjoy life now my motto is you can't take it with you.
Not at all.. Those who know me will agree I am sure. I would rather spend my money on things of greater benefit to my family than set fire to it. If I was obsessed with money why would I buy an RS3? Martin Lewis learned a lot from me!

I couldn't give a **** about the cost quite frankly, pay what you are comfortable with imho. In all honesty I think it is under priced!

TX.

Agree the RS3 is well priced. For me if there is a win - win deal to be done, why not! Pointless wasting money even if your minted like me.

Nice! How do you find out about which boats depart and when? :)

I just went on Port of Tyne website and looked for arrivals from Emdan.
You could also go on Marine Traffic and look at port of Emdan and look for Departures to Sheerness.
It's a bit of a guessing game really, your dealer will know the name of the boat once the car is loaded.
