Keith WilsonHaving a bit of cold feet about potential depreciation. Whilst my 2014 Audi S3 and 2015 3 series touring, are worth roughly the same as they were 2 years ago my 2014 low mileage GTS is apparently worth less? 911's on the other hand seem to be appreciating? Should I be putting my money in a slightly cheaper 2016 911 4S? No problem with PPF either. Mind you the insurance is a whopping 300% more! Any thoughts?
JurassicGTS I do sympathise with the nightly cold sweats about spending this type of money, Everyone's position is different, but I will be 70 in 2 years, we have no kids to leave anything to and I can't take it with me! On the insurance front, Churchill came up very competitive at £240 fully comp no commuting. I don't think they worry about PPF.

I don't think they worry about PPF.Just make sure that after buying the car you are confident that you will have enough income, for a couple, the state pension of up to £21,200pa (from April 2023) is a good start. We're in a similar (no kids, though not by choice!), but younger, position, sentiment agreed. I don't bother with PPF (maybe I should) but if you say you'll put PPF on your new car I'd have thought that the insurers would see that you take great care of your vehicle and give you a discount on the premium! Hope it all goes wellDavid
BigcolIf your having cold feet it maybe best not to bother. Your obviously not a car enthusiast wanting to enjoy a car for the driving pleasure it is designed for.
JurassicGTS Just seems to be Aviva that has this stupid attitude to PPF. Agree it should show you take extra care of your car and therefore lower risk
ScroungerI wouldn’t worry about depreciation too much. I spoke to my sales guy the day before yesterday and he said that GTS 4.0s are holding their money well and if I wanted to sell it they’d give me what I paid for it a year ago. He also said that there may not be a MY24 but an extension to MY23. They have no more GT4/Spyder allocations coming and MY23 May we’ll be the last for those.
