Now is the time to buy!

If you've been holding off buying your new 108 until the new year - don't! Buy it now

And I'm not just saying that because I think the 108 is great, Car price experts CAP have revealed new analysis that shows buying a used car before Christmas rather than after could save enough cash to cover the cost of Christmas.

The Money Advisory Service 2013 revealed the average cost of Christmas is £487 per adult in the UK – and CAP research has shown that, last Christmas, many used cars were valued £500 less in December 2013 than in January 2014.

It’s all because of seasonality, said CAP – December is always quiet, and is followed by “an explosion of interest” in January.

“The trick is to go against the trend and buy when other people aren’t looking for the same thing,” said CAP retail and consumer specialist Philip Nothard.

“That means December can be a brilliant time to change your car.”

Either that or buy at the end of September or March in the UK when dealers are trying to top up their new car sales targets at number plate change time.

Yeah that's true. Despite the fact they split it into twice a year to try and even things out it never quite worked.

Yeah I'd be interested to hear from anyone who is ordering around this time of year what deal you managed to get?
