United Kingdom 2013 Range Rover Vogue SE SDV8 Santorini Black

What's the D4 worth ? Is it beneficial to hand it back vs keeping it ?

I had a similar dilemma with mine earlier in the year - I'd also left it late & coincidentally, was also off to Australia.

In the end I just refinanced & kept it - so in a few years I'll own it, just in time to start the whole merry go round again when the new model is released and I can rent one of those Wink

As mine has been good so far, I didn't really fancy rolling the dice on a newer one.

I have seriously considered keeping the D4. It's been a fantastic vehicle to own and to pay off the balloon payment would save loads of hassle and I'd effectively be buying it at trade price. But 3 years is along time for me to own any vehicle and changing to an L405 seems to be giving me a big itch that needs scratching, even if it could potentially lead to a load of hassle Whistle

If you’re effectively buying the D4 at trade price why not buy it and then take your time to try a few 405’s and look for the right car at your leisure? Enjoy the process!

Buying to such a tight deadline is risky and if you’re buying at trade, you’ll still lose less on the D4 over the next 6 months than you would on whichever Fatty that you buy. 2011 FL2 TD4 XS Kosrae Green

Very true RM and to be honest I am favouring that option at the moment. I think I’ve left myself too little time to do this properly. The 3 or 4 I would go and look at tomorrow are all over 150 miles away, 2 of them in Scotland. Distance would not stop be buying what I consider to be a good one, but lack of time and distance could lead to a disappointing purchase.

Better to be patient, it’s not like are current chariot is not a nice place to be Thumbs Up

Of course if a FF within 50 miles takes my fancy, who knows Whistle

I keep reading how the motor trade is not doing very well and judging by my recent experiences I can see why.

I appreciate they have overheads and need to make a profit hence the buy low sell high mantra, but the gulf in price from trade to retail seems to have widened to unrealistic proportions.

Even when I find one that suits my budget and I’m prepared to deal, obstacles are thrown in the way.

Most recent example, offered Censored for mine (standard) took it on the chin because theirs was a decent buy.
Offered low rate finance Thumbs Up All good so far, so why is your monthly figure £130 more per month than my brokers Question
Apparently there figure included a 3 year warranty and gap insurance, don’t worry about those I said, I’ll sort those far more competitively, I’ll just take the low rate finance. Unfortunately sir it’s all part of the low rate package Whistle

Not a problem, I’ll use my finance to buy the car Thumbs Up Guess what, company policy doesn’t allow outside finance Censored

I won’t name and shame because at this point I got up and left without pushing to see if they would sell me the car the way I wanted rather than how they wished to proceed.

I didn’t even try and haggle on the asking price, whatever happened to straight forward retail transactions Big Cry

I believe the sell vs buy gap has got a lott bigger......bubble and burst comes to mind!

Car sales figures are down, and last years sales didnt look great either!!

Someone has to pay and the companies think its us!!

I'd say its unlikely I will change my car now also and wait to see when the L460 can come to market unless my visit to the dealer later today does something like a miracle!! all smug in my new plug!
