Re: Long Term Ownership.

I quite agree and that was part of my thinking too...but I'm only committed to the GTI for the next 3 years. I bought my 2 previous cars outright (although they were basic models) and kept them for 7 and 8 years, personally speaking I don't think I'd be doing the same at the moment.

Re: Long Term Ownership.

It's interesting to read of other owners' experiences. I've had my GTI coming up to 12 weeks and 2000 miles, it's my first auto and first VW after mostly having basic, economical motors. Then I realised that I wasn't getting any younger so thought I would treat myself to something a bit more upmarke...

Re: New VED rates from 01st April.

Hi Andy, yes first lease so it's been a bit of a learning curve. Thanks for your reassurances, I'm evidently being too pessimistic.

Re: New VED rates from 01st April.

It's on a lease so of course I can't and never expected to "earn" any more "dimes". What I mean is that I hope to reduce the chance of being presented with any extra bills for paintwork damage at the end. Now I'll never truly know whether I have gained or lost on the transaction, but at least it sho...

Re: New VED rates from 01st April.

To update my car is due to arrive soon and the VED is as expected at £540, luckily I managed to find the relevant e-mail that this had already been costed in to my deal so nothing more to pay, happy days. Mind you I have spent the 'saving' (and then some) on booking a ceramic coating at a local plac...

Re: New VED rates from 01st April.

Thanks for the reply. When I went back through all the paperwork they did list the car as emissions of 138gm CO2 which as you say explains the £330 as last year's rate would have been 210 compared to 540 now (I was a bit confused as this year's rate for 138gm is 215). It doesn't reflect the conversa...

Re: New VED rates from 01st April.

Hi new member here, thanks for the board it is full of interesting information. Back in March I ordered a GTI from a lease company which was due for delivery mid-August. Now they are saying end of August but I wonder whether it is here and the finance company want them to wait for a 70 plate, howeve...
