I don't quite follow. What would an "individual" buy instead?

I was thinking that. Or maybe Optimus Prime, you wouldn't see too many of him on the roads.

No, it's pre-registered before 1st.
That only strengthens the argument for picking up on the first. If the registration side of things can be looked after in advance, I'm sure the money side can also so be sorted so the they should open for handover.

As far as I'm aware, they can't be pre-registered before the 1st Jan.

I don't look after registering cars personally, but know people who do, and it is done there and then online - as long as there's money in the VRT account.

Dealers could log on to ROS at any point after midnight on the 1st January to reg cars, then print the plates, put them on the car, give it the final wash and do the handover. Looks like some do for special customers, but most dealers will only schedule a few handovers for the first working day of 2019.

More handovers being done today than yesterday - ROS has a habit of falling over on the 1st working day, so sensible dealers schedule stuff for the following day rather than having customers sitting around waiting for their cars that can't be registered and therefore can't be let out.

ROS seemed to hold up yesterday without any issues, which made a pleasant change.

Can you elaborate on this? The Tucson had a facelift in 2018 - how could they sell a 2016 model as a 2019?

I think he means a lot of people who PCP'd new Tucsons in 161 had to either buy out their vehicle or take on a new PCP deal this year.


PCP is becoming less and less of a new phenomenon though so we can probably all stop making statements like those anyway. people are taking on new PCP's all the time and it was pretty common by 2016.

And the "long wheel brace" is handy because those wheel nuts are a divil to shift.

Yeah, i'd go with a Kia Sportage then, completely different and totally bespoke

The dealer can ”sell” the 2016 secondhand under a new PCP to another customer. They are not selling it as new. PCP can be used for secondhand vehicles.

Looks like the new A Class is very popular, seen quite a few lined up waiting for collection.
