    I'm in the process of trying to figure out what a new Leon FR 184 HP would cost me vs a used/demo one. I quite fancy being able to pick out the exact spec I'd like.

    I'm going to a longer test drive in a 184 on thursday, all being well I'd like to start talking prices with the dealer (JCT600 - but open to others if they can't sort a decent price).

    What sort of discount should I be aiming for on list price of a base car (before I start adding the extras)? Is there any way to find the invoice price of these?

    Try http://www.carwow.co.uk/ couple of people including me have got good deals from here, dealers bid on the spec you are after. Glad I found it as Stoke Seat gave me a better offer through here then when I walked through their door.

    Downside seems to be limited amount of dealers on the scheme so you may not get one near you.

    Had a quick response from Stoke SEAT already from that carwow site, very quick! If that is indicative of what could be available then it looks like I may be able to stretch to a brand new one with the extras I fancy, even if I would be paying for the next 7 years :/

    Best go away and work out EXACTLY what I want now!

    I tried Carwow, but the figures did not match that provided by Stoke Seat via Carfile. However, when presented with Stoke's figure, a nearby dealer all but matched it. The trip up to Stoke to collect the car, or have it delivered with nearly two hundred miles on the clock and not being able to check it over at the point of sale made the couple of hundred pounds saving involved not worth it.

    Just of curiosity, what's the appeal to you of DSG?

    That car in your sig is pretty much what I want, though I'd like to add the sports body trim.

    Cool so why not ask a dealer how much fitted and painted out of the money you will save ;)

    I'll ask after test drive on thursday, though there is something appealing about an all new motor...

    Also used car wow and then contacted the dealers on the list.
    Went over to Stoke Seat for a test drive (184 ST with tech pack) and got a really great welcome. Gave them details of prices I had been offered including What Car-target price and they beat them all and also offered me over £1000 more than I had been offered for a part exchange on my Altea XL.
    Also got the interest free credit deal and the free tech pack. They even knocked money of the extras I added on top of the base price!
    Seem really genuine and only 40 miles from me, car on order and is due to be built next week.
    From my experience so far Stoke Seat seem to be a breath of fresh air compared to other Seat dealers near me.

    Well it will mostly be driven by my girlfriend to and from work, 70 miles a day, some of which is stop start and so she wants an automatic. I actually prefer diesels with auto boxes too. I have manual in my fun car.

    I had a quote from them through carwow, but I don't really know if that is a good price or if I should try to push to lower it further.

    (sorry if sharing quote info if frowned on, mods - please let me know if that is the case)


    I've now had a few quotes via the broker sites which are coming in at 24-25k for a new 184 with the following additional stuff:

    Black paint
    Sound pack
    Sport styling body kit
    Tech pack

    Does that seem about right or should I be pushing for further discount?

    For info I managed to get the price from Stoke Seat nearly £500 lower than the lowest Car Wow quote. Price I ended up with was not as low as the cheapest Broker but not to far away and did the deal direct with the dealer who has kept in touch with updates etc.
    Ordered 20th May and due to be built next week (week 26) so probably arrive by end of July beginning of August I am guessing.
     
  19. I'm looking at this model too. Can you post the best price you got and where? Which brokers did you use?
    thanks

    I'm getting the best quotes through carwow at the moment.
    I'm getting around 5% off list price for the car and spec I'm looking at through carwow. Not as much as I'd hope, but still a reduction nontheless.
