Means I need to have 2 spares onboard!
I’ve just fitted directional tyres. You just know that if by the law of sod you get a puncture, a further law of sod will say it will be on the ‘wrong’ side to the spare!

Doesn’t matter if you are using the spare as a “ get to the garage “ spare and moderate your driving speed accordingly.
I too have directional tyres but a non-directional spare.

Just declined the offer of £42k. Explained it wasn’t 100% what I was after and I was prepared to wait. Explained it would have to be around £40k for us to consider it. Expected to hear no more...... come back with £40500, but I’d have to sort service out. Is there a risk in that?

Good negotiating! When is it due a service? Does it have the extended warranty out of interest?

I was in Wooburn Green the other day, they have stock of beaches, but there not advertising all of them on the website, Maybe worth a call to Richard wood, to see what they have, nice chap. Best advice DYOR regarding prices, there have been some excellent discounts about particularly via Autoebid

Sales guys always have some wiggle room, now you’ve given him the magic number he’s come back with a close offer, to keep you interested.
Take the negotiation your way, ask for serving x2 to be included and a set of mats and a few other thing you can think of that you would like, if the magic number can be reached, otherwise hang them out for the end of the month. Vehicle sales are not great at the mo, end of month target figures might see you bag another lump off as well as some extra goodies if you ply it cool

I think the OP said it was a Private sale.

Yes it is a private sale. We’ve just done the deed and I go to pick up Sunday. I was on autoebid, checked daily on Autotrader/ ebay and VW website, I’m sure I’ve made the right move, so long as I don’t keep checking what I could of had if I waited :Grin

Editions are the best looking Calis imo (we have an Ocean) and what matters is you’re happy with the deal which seems good imo. Don’t look back and just enjoy it. The attached may be useful. Cheers.

Nice one! I've seen one or two Editions on the road and they look awesome.

Plus you've got a bit of money in your pocket if you find it needs the odd thing doing. Looking forward to pics.

To be honest, I still don’t know. The deal sold it for me regardless so I’m assuming no. If it’s there, it’s a bonus.
