Yeah, well pleased, the bloke said there was a couple of first editions in black left so went for ione of them and able to get next month. Fancied the blue but they all sold out. The 2 litre i tested was really nice, so expecting the 3 litre ive got will be sweet.

The newer reg will potentially have a higher resale value.

Starting to think there are no genuinely bad cars anymore.

Me and my broters are looking to purchase a small sub 17.000 euro economy box for my mother. Test drove a couple in the past few weeks. DS3, Ceed, Rio, Astra etc. They are all varying degrees of properly decent.

The age of Lancia's that rot away in a medium drizzle or potentially lethal puddles seems to be long gone.

reg usually stands for regulator valves. important for the air compressor. you might want to check with dealership though as this varies. would probably hold out for the updated reg if its just round the corner

What you on about swede ?!

Do I take car on July 65 plate or Wait for set 66 ?

I'm going to go for the latter but wonder if it makes much diff in resale , can't be arsed to wait 6 weeks just for a newer plate.

If you're gonna flip the car for a new one in a year or two then get the newer plate otherwise doesn't really matter

Stoney, is the car a 65 or 16 plate? You're almost a year behind if it's a 65.

Its a vanity thing in most instances - drop them a line ask them why people would wait a month or so they'll say same.

Resale value is based much more on model year, that being said its an F Pace its going to well saught after 2nd hand in the first 2/3 years

Personally id just pick up and enjoy it

I reckon if you're struggling to understand the concept of waiting for a new reg plate, you're going to find things like driving virtually impossible.

Save your cash and use taxis.

Cheers toocan, just wanted to make sure there wouldn't be a massive financial diff so all good.
