    What are the GFV on pre reg comp cars? Im guessing its when your buying pre reg ir new that the dealer will be more flexible on clearing negative equity. That monthly figure seems pretty high to me when there are cars out there between 50-55k

    The point I was making, was that I didn't have to put anything in than I already had in my original deal. Unlike the OP, my costs to exchange were zero. So in effect it cost me noting to change.

    That's an insane amount of money to spend monthly - you must really want the car!

    £900 a month for an M4 is nuts.

    Quite frankly just plain silly. Unless your earning over 8k a month (after tax) and want to throw money away 900 is not on.

    look harder

    Why would you need to earn £8k a month after tax to warrant spending £900 a month on a car?

    Theses people must have an amazing house and lifestyle on £2k a week after tax :muttley:

    I don't think you'd get a loan at less than 6%

    I've done some more looking around, and the few others I found on bmw website I thought were pre lci are actually lci. I think this spec hasn't got the Upgraded front led light package

    A few more calls to make

    If u factor depreciation into account against monthly payments I don't think there would be much difference surely

    That was the issue...The car was stolen from my driveway but there was no evidence left behind..Nothing..I had both keys with fobs, plus there was a steering lock on the car...
    To this day i swear that it was the garage who had serviced it for me...The day I went to collect it, it wasn't there...The boss phoned the mechanic, who was on a 'test drive'..Over an hour later it returned on a low loader..He'd used my car to collect the truck, but my car was absolutely filthy...There was mud sprayed all over it..I honestly think he'd taken it off road or something similar...I also think they duplicated the keys, waited a few days and then stole the car...
    It took the insurance over 6 months to pay the claim and I lost £3000 in value (not counting the wasted finance payments)...
    With debt, I never felt like it was mine..because it wasn't...I want to OWN it, not rent it..
    With finance you pay thrice...
    First is the sale price, second is the interest, third is the depreciation.

    Ah guys I fee so embarrassed. I nearly signed for something I thought was an LCI

    So when you used bmw website and you have the "s" after competition pack. I assumed this meant LCI. Well I was told today it wasn't.

    Thanks for the advice guys, I think I'm just gonna wait it out till march. I mean after all, the winter isn't the time for a convertible anyway

    What garage did you have your car serviced from, was it a BMW dealership.
