New PureTech 110 S&S Flair
#1
So, I've had my Multispace VTR for over seven years now and although it is working fine I have been toying with the idea of changing it for a new one.

The new petrol engine is now available which would suit me better then the latest diesel, Using the configurator, the model and options I would like comes to about £20,500 on the road. (They have gone up haven't they!) My current one is only worth say £2,500 trade in.

So why am I writing this and not heading to the dealer with a wad of £18,000 in used notes? The thing is that apart from being shinier and having some extra toys a new one wouldn't do anything more then the one I've got so I really might as well run the one I have into the ground first. Mine doesn't have a DPF or Elson Blue (sp) or a dodgy touchscreen, etc.

It is on its original battery which is likely coming to the end of its life and the tyres will need replacing next year, so a few hundred pounds spent will bring it up to spec rather then eighteen thousand.

If the turbo holds, I think I can get another 10 years out of it. No wonder there are few good 2nd hand Multispaces for sale, us owners are keeping hold of them!

Wow 20 grand for a Berlingo surely no one pays that money for a Berlingo and just would lease one instead.

I paid £12,800 for a 100hp 'blue' HDi Feel With Modutop,cruise control,folding mirrors & reverse beepers. My old '57 Desire 90,50,000m was valued at £2,000.I gave it to my son.He got the better car I now think.This was in January. PS.Keeping it is certainly sound financially.

Hi,
I should steer well clear of Carwow if I were you.
In August 2015 I ordered an XTR 120 through them at an agreed price and paid £1000 deposit to a Citroen main  dealership in the West Midlands. As the car had a number of options on, it was to be a new factory build.
The dealership was to get back to me advising the delivery date but failed to do so. When I contacted them they said that they had made a mistake in the estimate and that the offer had been withdrawn. This was despite the fact that I had exchanged quite a number of emails with them about the price of the car, options, delivery date and so on before I agreed to place the order and paid the deposit. The agreed price whilst being a good one was not so ridiculously low to be unrealistic.
When I complained to the dealer principal he was unapologetic and almost suggested that I should be grateful that they were returning my deposit!!.
I complained directly to Carwow but they weren't interested in pursuing my complaint, obviously more interested in keeping their business with the dealership than with me.

With the new year upon us and the rise in RFL in April, I expect a lot of cars will be bought in the next couple of months meaning less discounts. Price rises have also been blamed on the exchange rate changes.

I think I will carry on for now but keep an eye open for a pre-registered car. I would prefer using a local dealer directly for the ease of trade-in, not having to sell privately with the problems of numpties and time wasters, and being without a car for a time. I do realise it will cost more.

My Berlingo has gone! someone will get a damn good car.

The temptation of a C4 Picasso was too great, had a new Berlingo been cheaper or the new Mk IV Berlingo was out it might have been different and I certainly wouldn't rule out another at some point in the future, it has been the best all-round car I've ever owned.

I'm already missing the simplicity, the sliding rear doors and the high-up seating! I will be sticking around here though in case I can help someone with a Berlingo related question.
