    Only you can decide that. If you have time to use it before March then it would be hard to resist getting it now. On the other hand if it’s just going to sit there then you might as well wait, I guess it will be worth a little more when you come to sell and you will have the satisfaction of having the latest Reg until September (I think).

    Congratulations anyway and good luck. :thumb

    Now. Get straight out. You have a heater. What you waiting for. I'm in the lakes now. 5th january and I'm camping in the lake district. Do it now. Did I say now? Anyway. Now. Did you buy it to sell or look at it? Or to use ASAP?, now. Do it now. There's 1 thing you can never ever extend. And that is your life by 6 months. So do it

    As above, absolutely now. It won’t make the slightest bit of difference in depreciation if that why you’d think to hold back.

    Would be a now for me. Get a few nights in it and you wont give a damn about the plate etc (chuck a fun personalized one on and the year on the plate is not an issue).

    Also.....this is VW......who knows what might happen in the next 8 weeks that could once again stop new registrations. Your pride and joy could be sat at the dealers for a lot longer.

    Hi Foo One,

    We're awaiting confirmation of build & delivery to dealer, albeit expected in early Feb, but have already told them we don't want it until March 1st.

    Personal choice obviously & we won't have to wait as long as you (maybe 3-4 weeks) but we wouldn't use the camping side of the Beach much at this time of year, so no hassle to wait until early spring.

    Whichever you choose, enjoy :thumb

    Get it now. I collected jan 4th and ordered after you. Note if its tied to VW finance as mine was they will pass cost increases onto you if you dont collect within 2 weeks. I got a little longer as VW had messed me /us around on delivery dates.
