Re: Tiguin R 190 DSG - 2 Years Old - 2 Years Contract Left - To buy?

Re: Tiguin R 190 DSG - 2 Years Old - 2 Years Contract Left - To buy?

As SlimPollack has stated, it is very unusual for VWFS to offer the car for you to purchase at the end of a Contract Hire agreement, but you state you have a ‘verbal’ agreement that it would be possible. What I would do is get VWFS to put that in writing, as it may go against the terms of your Cont...

Re: Tiguin R 190 DSG - 2 Years Old - 2 Years Contract Left - To buy?

Would i be better getting a settlement figure now, or waiting another 2 years and see what factors affect the value ? e.g. electric grants from gov / new tig shape etc. Hi there, Don't think you read my post, and I have spoken to VW directly, and although contract hire (mentioned in an earlier post...

Re: Tiguin R 190 DSG - 2 Years Old - 2 Years Contract Left - To buy?

The 18.5k is a sunk cost and should no longer have any bearing on your keep/sell decision moving forward. The money has been paid and is gone. If you are saying this is purely a black&white unemotional financial decision, then the decision should be a versus two alternatives: Option 1: buying your ...

Re: Tiguin R 190 DSG - 2 Years Old - 2 Years Contract Left - To buy?

I think all discussion here is somehow off topic I'm afraid as the OP mentioned - as I understand - that he took the car on Personal Contract Hire i.e. personal leasing. He signed up the dotted line that for 48 months he will pay a monthly rental for using the car. https://www.volkswagen.co.uk/offe...

Re: Tiguin R 190 DSG - 2 Years Old - 2 Years Contract Left - To buy?

Tig190DSG - do you buy it at that trade value, I presume? On your last question, you will simply move to another car I presume which you will buy and pay another new car dealer margin (unless you get a used private sale somewhere). Of course it'll be a newer car, and an upgrade most likely, so it d...

Re: Tiguin R 190 DSG - 2 Years Old - 2 Years Contract Left - To buy?

For what its worth, depreciation curves are steepest between Years 1, and then again in Year 3 as the warranty expires. It gradually flattens out after that, and the annual % depreciation rate slows markedly. So you are likely to lose money if you trade in year 2. Intuitively that makes sense as th...

Re: Tiguin R 190 DSG - 2 Years Old - 2 Years Contract Left - To buy?

However, if you wait till the end of your term the car might be worth more than your GFV and you could make money. My fist Tig was worth more at the end than the GFV so I made money, the other 2 were not so lucky as I traded them in at the 2 year mark and just about broke even over the 2 cars. Okay...

Re: Tiguin R 190 DSG - 2 Years Old - 2 Years Contract Left - To buy?

Hi guys, Thanks for the input, I don't think I was super clear so apologies. My car is on hire contract, not hire purchase or PCP. So after the 4 years @ £18.5k out the bank, they will value the Tig at trade value and i can either buy or hand back. I'm looking at tigs and thinking 4 years in maybe w...
