Yep exactly. On this occasion I couldn't be bothered with the wait and the time wasters and low ballers I knew would happen.

When trading in, it's all about the "Change over price".

They came close to a change over I was happy with and that's all that counts really, regardless of how the numbers are moved around on the page.

Rather than upping the offer on the 147, they discounted the car I was buying. All the same thing.

yeah, pretty much the same reason we traded the Escape.

Incidentally, after the 2012 Forester was written off by a red-light runner when it was just over 2 years old (so just past the new-for-old replacement cut-off under our insurance) I also vowed I will never again buy a brand new car.

The depreciation impact on the insurance payout meant I still ended up thousands out of pocket when buying a replacement.

Well today I'm wearing my "NINE ONE SIX" t-shirt to work, along with my piloti driving shoes, and I drove the GTV in to work, on what is pretty much the last drive of the car under my ownership.

Tomorrow I will wash and vacuum it, and sign it over to it's new owner.






....my son :)

Indeed! :)

Only now I'm finding myself saying things like "yep we'll get it serviced and fix that window winder and I'll help you out with the cost".

lol......I dont think this outcome has helped me much hhahahahaha.

But what a great first car, and this was my original plan back when I even purchased the silver one. The GTV was eventually meant to be for this son, and the Beetle for the other.

I just kind of....forgot ;)
