ESTIMATED VALUATION ?
on: May 18, 2015, 10:17:57 AM
I got my CT on PCP deal in May 2013 . . . time to decide is eligible to change it from towards end of this year. I am not sure yet but fancy considering the DCT if I do change it . . . anyway, it will cost me £5,300 to pay final balance, so is it worth keeping this: . . 2013 CT Manual, Black, 7,800 miles so far, all extras with full GIVI luggage, front bars, heated grips, hard wired satnav, spotlamps, hugger, etc . . . absolute mint and just had ACF50 treatment last weekend . . . I'm very tempted to pay the balance and keep it for a further year then think about changing in 2017 spring when it will be 4 years old as trade in. What do we think it is worth privately at this moment, just to help me decide.

I would say it would be worth about £7250 - £7500 private. Problem is you cant charge too much as there are so many good deals and 0% on new ones.

Seems like your caught between a rock and a hard place. I would say go with your heart as I can't see you'd loose out either way, plus you could try and squeeze out some add-ons from the dealer should you decide to go down the new DCT route.

Looking across dealers, there are many on 13 plates, with similar miles to yours, are on resale for anything from £8200 to £9500, so its s fair old range, so if you knock off £1500 to £1700 the dealers are looking to make, then £6 to 6.5k trade in at the bottom book is probably somewhere close, though usually on PCP the GFV is set about £1k to £1500 below its actual value, this to cater for "worst case" bikes which come in at 3 years old. I asked this question on the last few bikes I have had, the answer was the same from different dealers. For me, I rarely go beyond 3 years ownership, but that is a personal choice, yours hasn't done a lot of miles, so as you have found, its not an easy choice of what next. In your position, I would go see dealer before its exactly 3 years old (not in winter though!) and ask the question, if you don't like the answer you can walk away and put 2 years extra warranty on it, if you decide to sell later on, the warranty is a good selling point.

Bargain hard there are some great deals to be had I got a 2015 dct well under book price, whatever you loose on yours close the gap on the new one.

Decided to take early retirement from full time work officially from this November, so looks like the sensible thing to do would be to pay balance and keep it . . . maybe look at two years extra warranty, and that way I have fully loaded bike with all extras fitted, low mileage, warranty, and no monthly payments . . .thanks all, it was worth checking out before decision.
