Do they actually think we are that dumb??TH3R4POR said:I was talking to a dealer last weekend, he wouldn't budge on any prices (Polo or Scirocco) and actually said they were struggling to keep cars on the forecourt as they were selling so many.... :roll:
apparently so.albertz33 said:
What I mean is that after 4 months of heavy book hits cars are cheaper than they have been for years. Now values are rising so buying one with the aim of taking a profit out of it is tough, guide figures rose 4% in feb as a result, we all cleared our forecourts and then needed to buy stock. The lease companies now expect is to pay Â£1000+ into book for late plate used cars but customers are still expecting big deals, although most have now realised if they didn't buy in jan they've lost out and now need to pay more.tallguy said:BM - when you say 'you can't buy one', not sure what you mean? Business should start picking up a bit in the run up to the 09 reg; be interesting to see the no of new cars registered in March.
When looking at PCP the GFV for a 3 year deal on a Â£20.6k car was 55% so VW must be pretty sure they are going to hold their value or else they are exposing themselves to a huge chunk of risk.I very much doubt Scirocco's will be worth around 60% of their purchase price after 3 years as some motoring journals are claiming.
