Mine was £79k new, I bought it 2 years old with 2 years warranty and only 15k miles for £50k. To me there was no way I was going to pay the extra outlay to get a new facelift.

They key is as mentioned is to keep them for a long time, which is something I never seem to be able to do.

Get some photos up when you've stopped driving it Elpeterol!

There is nothing like having a brand spanking new car though!
When I want a new car I want the latest model available.
The last time I bought a used car I just couldn’t gel with it.
To me it felt like wearing somebody else’s suit; it didn’t quite fit.
After 3 weeks I ended up ordering a new car with everything I actually wanted.
Won’t buy used again.....!

Fully agreed Nastro ,, I got that fed up with looking at Used Mint cars which were far from Mint even at the main dealers.

I wouldn't sleep knowing or wondering how it had been driven / looked after previously.

Love brand new cars, great discount & service.

Got the 4TH year added too which you certainly can do used.

Enjoy Elpeterol they are stunning bits of kit- love the lights when unlocking in the dark

I’d still rather get the exact car that I want run it in as I want and keep it for a long time. My S4 lost about 50% in six years. I got a significant discount on the new car and wiil keep it for at least 5 years. Financially used makes very good sense - emotionally I’n not so sure😀
I agree, I have bought new with a good discount and select options of my choosing. I keep the car for 8+ Years averaging around 7500 miles a year and sell privately at the end. The longer you keep it the more diluted the depreciation. It almost flat lines after 5 years. I always get it main dealer serviced. Don’t bother with independents. They sometimes quote more! Selling within 3 years is when you loose a shed load of money.
