  1. Lease vs Buy

    the quote i got didn’t specify the interest rate and residual. I do know that the MSRP of the build is £110,383 though. Porsche build https://www.porsche.com/microsite/porsche-code/default.aspx?c=/PLR8QLD3 I’m guessing I’m paying in full for most of those options on a lease.....
  2. Lease vs Buy

    Ouch. Got a contract hire price and it came in at 6 + 35 payments of £1,467.20 plus VAT. Given I can get half the VAT back that comes out at £66k over 3 years and 30k miles. That’s without maintenance and is probably because there are £27k of extras on my 4S build I guess bringing the price to...
  3. Lease vs Buy

    Thanks all the info is really helpful. I haven’t leased a car through my business before but can you get contracts that allow you to buy the car at the end if you don’t want to hand it back, like PCP? With BIK so low it doesn’t make sense for me to take the money out of the business at 50% plus...
  4. Lease vs Buy

    Hi Im in the U.K. and I’m wondering whether to lease or buy my 4s which is scheduled for delivery late April/early May. I have a limited company so can do a business lease, or just buy it outright. It works for me to buy it through my company either way with the BIK rates so low. The thing...
  5. U.K. Launch/Deliveries pushed back?

    Mine is looking the same. Originally Jan build for Feb delivery, then Feb build for March delivery, now early April build for late April / early May delivery :-(
  6. Home charging in the UK

    Checked with the dealer and they said my 4S is in V250 and if I want to change anything I can but it will likely push back the delivery date. They aren’t giving me the current expected date though - keeping that very close to their chest. It locked on 10 Jan. Wallbox Pulsar Plus being...
  7. Home charging in the UK

    I’ll enquire with the dealer about whether the car is actually locked... I was told it was on 10th Jan at V250 but as you say it seems the 4S builds have been pushed back so it may not actually be locked.
  8. Home charging in the UK

    I just ordered a Wallbox Pulsar Plus - I like the separate “holster” for the plug which suits where we want it installed, and it seems to have one of the very few well rated apps on the App Store. Hopefully will be installed within a couple of weeks. Will let you know how I get on but will...
  9. Home charging in the UK

    Unfortunately for those of us outside Scotland, I think the EST grant is only available in Scotland?
  10. Taycan 4s April delivery

    good to see this schedule, thanks Reg. My fix date was also 10th January but I’m not having much joy getting the schedule out of the dealer. I’m in the UK. Does anyone have any experience of time from exiting production to arriving at the dealer in the U.K.? Hoping it might be with me...
  11. Lockdown

    Hi Do you have an estimated start of build, or delivery date yet? My dealer is being very cagey about that.... Cheers David
  12. Home charging in the UK

    Hmmm interesting. Yes I’m sure it says up to 11kw on the web. At the moment I’m thinking I might start with a 32a commando socket for the mobile connect and decide on a fixed charge point in due course. As you say I’ll have to remember to take it with me if I might need it when away from home...
  13. Home charging in the UK

    Hi All thanks for the feedback. @grahamsimmonds and @goggs I was starting to think about how things would be when we get a second EV. Is there any problem with taking 64 amps off the home circuit (mine has a 100 amp breaker)? I think some of the charge points have a way of balancing 2 outlets...
  14. Any Taycans in the U.K. yet?

    Hi All Wondering if anyone has taken delivery or seen one at a dealer in the U.K. yet? Our dealer doesn’t seem to have a date for their demonstrator arriving or a fixed date for their launch event yet. best David
  15. Home charging in the UK

    Hi All wondering what people are doing about this. Having been forced to take the Mobile Connect unit I’m wondering about getting the outside mounting box for that and a 32a commando socket. Or with the OLEV grant I guess it may be better to have a new point installed? interested in...
  16. Delete Taycan 4s lettering or not?

    Hey everyone thanks for all the responses - after a great deal of discussion we have decided to go with painting the Taycan 4s sign in the exterior colour ..... cant wait to get the car - struggling to get much out of the dealer on dates other than Feb build / March delivery currently expected...
  17. Delete Taycan 4s lettering or not?

    Hi My son is adamant we should take the option to delete the model designation from our Taycan 4s. He feels it will make the rear look better. Interested to know what everyone else is doing on this one and people’s views? We have a spec lock date of 10th Jan so need to make a decision. best...
  18. Surround View - Is it worth it?

    Thanks everyone - changing my spec now to include surround view. I’ve chosen the 21 inch wheels and really want to try my best to keep them pristine....
  19. Surround View - Is it worth it?

    Hi All quick question - is the surround view worth it over and above the reversing camera? I haven’t had a Porsche for a while so haven’t tried the two options. cheers David
  20. High Gloss Sport Design Pack or Matte?

    Hi thanks for the quick response. On the U.K. configurator carbon doesn’t seem to be an option - just high gloss black or partly body coloured (which we don’t like as much especially at the rear of the car). I’ll check with the dealer whether there are other options. Or is getting the black...
