Yes, but that's always the case with drive the deal. No reason not to take finance then withdraw as soon as possible

^ How can they offer a £7k reduction when so I can gather the car comes from a uk supplying VW dealer 🤔🤔
Surely a deal could be negotiated with the VW dealership direct to cut out ‘Drive the Deals’ corner 🤔🤔 ( or would have thought so )
I struck a deal with mine....but it wasn’t £7k 🤧🤧

Use that price as your bargaining position. If A.N.Other dealer can sell it for that, others should be able to match and sometimes better

Quote Drive the Deal “ Once payment of the deposit has been effected the dealer will contact you to introduce themselves. The supplying dealer's identity is confidential and you agree as a condition of this agreement that you will not disclose it to any third party.”

Don’t like the sound of that !

Try coast2coastcars, they let you spec up the car and give you the price. The R had a 13% saving when I just had a quick look now.

Once you click on send me the quote it tells you the dealership you’d be getting it from.

Seems to be Listers Nuneaton most of the time.

Graham1983 👍👍. I’ve just been told by a VW dealership that lower spec vehicles are directed to Drive the Deal ( altho’ I had spec’d it up myself )
The best deal from VW £4K more but saving £3k of RRP

I bought my car through Drive the Deal and yes I did pay the £1000 deposit through my credit card which is quite safe. The deposit wasn't actually taken until the order was confirmed with the dealer. It was the dealer who took the deposit and not drive the deal.

Got an excellent deal without wasting my time sitting around a desk. No local dealer could match it.

The dealer was VW JCB Kent at the time. Enjoyed the train journey down on collection day. The sales chap couldn't have been more nicer. Was prompt to reply emails throughout.

I even changed my order after couple of days of placing it and they were fine to accommodate that with no extra fee.

I took the finance to get the discount and paid it off in a couple of days. Interest was £10.

The R is on there so sure you can spec it how you like with the options. If something is missing in the option list just have a chat with them. Everything is in writing and you will get confirmation from both the VW dealer and drive the deal.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Just depends on what type of savings your getting elsewhere.

NPinUK 👍👍
Did you spec personal options 🤔
Been in touch with 3 different vw dealerships today, they can't get anywhere near the drive the deal quote, & quoted that I'd be palmed off with a lesser spec vehicle.
The only reason to change is I don't have the panoramic roof........I wanted one, but not that bad 😎😎
mrew42. This is what I can't grasp. None of the dealerships could get anywhere near ⛔⛔⛔⛔
