Im Thinking of buying a 2010 Skoda Octavia 1.8 tsi petrol model early next year. So more a less I will be buying a 3 year old 1.8 petrol ( so should pick it up cheap enough )
Will have to probably buy in UK or the North as feck all of them here.
I do 7000 miles a year in mainly start/stop city traffic
I like my bit of acceleration which is why I'm picking this car, also, the way money issues are, I like the idea of not spending loads of money on a car with a similar engine but a different badge........Audi, Honda etc............but then will sacrifice looks, resale or whatever ; )
I Would hold on to the car for 3 years.
So in 2016, I will be trying to sell a 6 year old 1.8 petrol Octavia
If selling private, will I be able to sell this car at all in 2016 ?
If to a garage, Am I going to loose a lot of money with depreciation ?
Am I mad to be buying this size petrol engine.
It seems that Ireland is just veering more and more towards diesels and in 2016, this will probably be more so.
