Do you all get your motors on a PCP ting? Mine is just about ending on my Golf so got the ball ache of sorting another car, but I'm dim with this stuff and never sure if I'm getting swindled or not but it seems like the only way of affording anything that's not a shitter.

Looking at Tiguans, Pugeot 3008 or Kia Sportage at the moment but open to suggestions. Yes I'm middle aged, no I don't need a willy extension that will bankrupt me. Ty.



This is me basically. I have just come off a 3 year deal on a R-Line Tiguan, which I generally liked but found the boot a touch too small to fit all of the kids stuff plus shopping etc. 
 
Don't laugh but I opted for a Skoda Superb on another 3 year deal. Much more practical for me in terms of boot space plus it costs me about £100 per month less than than VW. I put down £2.5k and pay just over £300 per month for 15k miles per year. It is pretty much fully loaded for that price - automatic, full leather, keyless entry, adaptive cruise control, lane assist, heated seats, heated steering wheel, reversing camera. The only things I didn't bother with were the park assist (as I had it on my VW and only used a handful of times, mainly just to see how well it worked) and the higher spec'd stereo.  
 
I am really pleased so far - much prefer it to the VW. I commute into London 2 days per week, parking at the O2 before tubing to Canary Wharf and the adaptive cruise control is a god send. I just set it for 85/90 when I hit the motorway and then it literally drives itself all the way to my turn off for the O2 accelerating and braking with the flow of the traffic, even stop and re-starting when hitting stationary traffic. Also the infotainment screen is huge - much better than the offering in the VW.

Who cares what you drive as long as you're happy.

Was it really that bad?
 
R32 would average between 14 and 18mpg round town. Motorway was closer to 30mpg if it was kept under 90, which was extremely rare.
 
This new one is fucking madness. I opened it a bit on the A50 yesterday and without realising, it was at 120mph
 
I average 25mpg. Should get better after a few miles on it.

My S3 averages 28mpg after 2 years. You drive like you stole it. You won't get above 25 lol.

I'm taking it easy until I hit the magic 1 thousand miles. Then I'll use the launch control at every traffic light.

Got 4mpg out of my 147 GTA once.

Fun though.

I took a work guy out in mine after it was mapped and limiter removed. It touched just over 160 in a few places and when we parked up to refuel it read 11mpg.
