Shadow edition, is it worth it?

Post by Barneybubble » Thu Oct 18, 2018 6:51 pm

Hi, I’m looking at changing my Audi TT to a 140i, as I need a little more space, looking at a couple of used cars, one with the shadow edition, one without. Is it worth the extra? I know it gives me a better set of speakers.

You haven't told us what the "extra" equates to.

What's the price difference?

The better speaker being the Harmon Kardon system? This is an option on the normal car that a lot of cars will have.



Are you going down the PCP route? If you are then often a nearly new car costs as much as a brand new one due to the discounts available and lower interest charges on new.

The Shadow Edition gives you darker Orbit Grey wheels as standard, darkened LED rear lights, dark surround on the headlights, gloss black kidney grills, sun protection glass, harman kardon speaker system, rear parking sensors and cruise control with braking function. It's a good package 👍

Agreed re the above PCP advice.

    Thank you all....yep, the deals on the new cars are pretty good, with PCP it equates to 20%. Alternatively I have seen a June 2018 car with only 50 miles on the clock. Will test drive next week!

    I would say that there is no point in the June car, better getting a new one. Shadow edition is a good deal too.

    There's a tiny difference in the same spec car from new in price between the SE and standard M140i, I picked the standard as I don't like tinted glass in the back, maybe £250 more if you have tinted glass in the standard model, but £40 less if you keep clear glass
