Anyone gone for a New Golf?

Post by aaronon »

Hey,

I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice.

I'm thinking about trading in my 6R. . .and adding cash to put down a good deposit for a brand new Golf GT (I've added 18inch alloys, and XENON headlamps with LED- which are a rip at £1200 but I want them haha).

Anywho, I've never bought a brand new car before so it's all confusing!

The RRP of my Golf the way I want it is about £25k, but I've been advised to get a quote with Drivethedeal.com (has anyone used them?!) the same Golf comes to £22 there which is a lovely saving!

Do you just go down to the dealer and say 'I know you can do it for this price! I'll put down my 6R, and 5grand cash for a deposit right now along with monthly payments for 60 months (i'm not sure they offer this? . . .just 48 months?) meaning the car is fully paid off after that time.

Is that what you did when you bought a new car?

I don't know how to approach it! I want to avoid those large final payments, I want a big deposit, but I'm not sure how that all works out!

I'd visit the dealer and ask but I know they'll try and rope me in and I can't be arsed with all that until I'm ready to seal the deal!

Did you guys just go to the dealer, spec up a car and work out a finance deal on RRP? . . .or did you get the price down by a couple of grand.

Thanks for any advice!

So after two Polo's (9n3 and 6R) i've today ordered a Golf GT with Bi-Xenons and LED DRL's and 18inch Durban Alloys in Pearl Black.

4 month wait for him to be made and shipped!!

Looks amazeballs!

I can't help but smile when in my Golf. It feels so... Refined and... I don't know... Obviously more powerful, but not just that... It feels more ... Solid. If that even makes sense. Everything from the steering wheel, to the indicators, to the knobs.
