The end of the cheap PCP deal on M140 Shadow Edition

Post by TRL » Sat Mar 31, 2018 4:37 pm

Well, Don't say I did not warn you!
It has taken BMW a whole quarter to realise that the Shadow edition model had a too high a GFV payment.
I mean it did make no sense that the car was £1330 more expensive than the standard car yet had a GFV that was almost £3500 higher.
Consequently you paid £25pm less for the Shadow edition over the standard car with no spec!

So checked the finance portal today and they have corrected it. Bad news for you and me!

Now the GFV has dropped by £2000 meaning that on average, even with the same deal as I have offered in Q1 the new prices are now
some £40pm higher than they were last quarter.

I need to go and lie down in a dark room somewhere... I am getting a migraine already!

It's like getting change for a £20 and finding you've been given one to many fivers :lol:

My mate got a quote today, 499 a month they wanted on a low spec shadow edition. That's with a 1k deposit.
Explains why it's so high then if the gfv has gone down .
Still think they were taking the p.

But does this mean someone buying now who might buy the car at the end of the PCP will have to pay less as a final payment?

Since it was posted on the 31st of March I think not.

The car market is slowing down, there's too many M140is being sold and the GFV was already set a little high.

Predictable adjustment.

I am half way through working out the deals for Q2.... looks like BMW have made a few more adjustments since my post. I know why too... big campaign push on 5 door Auto model. So here is what I have noticed so far... basically the 5 door Auto has hardly changed, but the 3 door models
and the manuals have all been kicked hard.

all numbers below are for a basic no option car, with my discount and £1000 customer deposit in. based on 8K miles pa.

M140 3 dr manual 47 x £394.25 plus GFV £12,868.
M140 3 dr Auto 47 x £407.18 plus GFV £13,494.

M140 5dr manual 47 x £399.30 plus GFV £13,218.
M140 5dr Auto 47 x £397.46 plus GFV £14,572.

So make of that what you will... there is over £2000 list price difference from a manual 3 dr M140 to the 5 dr Auto... but only £3pm more!

Glad my order is old prices too! Else I'd be trying to justify the jump up to an M3!
