Long serving Forum members will remember my topic of two years or so ago;- Stick or twist - What next after 'Trusty Steed' Kevin?
. . . . and astutely Neil spotted my teaser, throw away comment of earlier today;-
. . . and replied with;-
I've had TOYS for nearly two years / 20,000 miles, found I had a decent amount of equity in him to settle my PCP a year early, so thought I'd take a look around to see if I could get an upgrade, specifically to an Ateca VZ2 that included Full Leather heated seats and a few other toys (pardon the pun).
With a bit of research I've found 'Antikythera' (a play on the letters in the Reg No) or AK for short, a six month old Ateca VZ2, 1690 miles, with full length Panoramic Sun Roof at a price that, on a repeat 36 month PCP and a generous Part Exchange price on TOYS comes in at the same price per month as I'm currently paying.
What's not to like?
I got to check out AK this morning, all's good and I have an appointment to collect him on Saturday afternoon.
A quick pic from this morning, before being valeted.
One item that has cropped up is AK has a Thatcham approved S5 VTS tracker fitted, that I have the option to make use of for an annual subscription of £170.00.
This seemed an interesting proposition until I phone my Insurers this afternoon to discuss. They advised my premium would increase by £5 for the remaining term to mid-January '24. I'd anticipated a moderately generous refund.
My thoughts so far, having discussed it with my brother and a friend, is to make use of it seeing as it is fitted, but look around at other insurers at Renewal time in January.
Roll on Saturday . . .
