Out of interest if you were intending keeping car why did you choose PCP route ?

I've kept the car before. Several reasons why:
GFV was far less than the trade value
Easier route to financing - lower monthly payments and allowed options for GFV eg pull from othe investments, save for it, ignore it!
More options at end of PCP
Cheaper APR than the loans at the time.

Sounds like you did your homework, only asked as my last one worked out less with loan, albeit with higher monthlies obviously.
Cheers

Apologies for resurrecting this old thread....

SaintMac or anyone else who changed their agreement and then VT'd it - have BMW Finance come back to you regarding excess mileage? Just wondering as I am about to pull the trigger and VT my M135i

Cheers

So as it would seem the ability to up the mileage at no cost has ended , whats the approximate extra ppm costs for a PCP?

Really? What did they say??

Someone on here suggested the agent mentioned something was changing 3 October so I banged in a request the week before. I though it was cheeky since I'd only had the car 10 days - but they didn't quibble.

Bad luck for this that have missed out though.

I actually quite fancy a 114i next....

Tbh good to see BMW have clamped down on this, some people were really taking the piss. I think I saw someone who specced and bought a car at 8000 and went to 25000 lol!

Looking at the post below, it ended last week. Hopefully not as while up until now I've always bought my cars outright. Was going to PCP this time to make use of the GFV should used prices take a hit with the G series being released in a couple of years. Not sure what to do now.
