I have decided to wait for the MY18 but happened to see a Velar on the road last weekend and it has upset my plan a little. Some great advice on here re PCP and discount, I would only add that although they may drop the discount on MY18 the likely increase in GFV could or should offset this (only on PCP obviously).

Foxblue good point about the increased mgfv but mine which is a my16.5, is only around 1500 less than the 2017 if you build the same spec car online now, I had nearly 8k off mine but it is an Hse dynamic which is specked as an ab, I never realised at the time I could have got the ab for the same or less payments, however mine was dealer stock so I took what I could get near to the spec I wanted & obtained the best discount I could get.

I understand this approach doesn't work for everyone however in my mind my interest in my Pcp was nearly paid by doing this deal or a good bit of depreciation was paid for. My local dealer was not even showing the deposit contribution on their website at the time & told me verbally there was no discount available, i.e. Take it or leave it! I had no problems leaving it I may add!

There is always a deal to be had on these vehicles as long as you don't mind travelling & your spec is not to exact in my opinion.

It hasn't upset my plans yet but have to admit it looks good on the road. I am tempted to stick a deposit down but the delivery will likely be Q2 2018 now and it's a bit too far off, added to which i think it better to let others iron out the creases (only joking mate)!

It's a good looking car, though possibly more estate than SUV in appearance, not quite the presence of an RRS or FF, but pretty cool.

Sorry OP i should've added that I would spec a full size spare, for the price it's a no brainer.

Hehe thanks. You guys have all been very helpful.

I'm kinda tempted to buy a used <20k mileage RRS 3.0, have it for a year or two and then look to get a new one specced exactly how I want, with the ironed out velar-style facelift? Is that a better idea than buying new now? I dunno.

I'm sure many more will face the same dilemma when they see a HSE Dynamic R velar! I was hooked when I saw itnon 1st March for the first time. The comments around it being an estate are not true as compared to the ride height of an X5 its actally better and most pictures online are of the car stopped which is when the ride height drops Thumbs Up 2017 Range Rover Velar First Edition - Corris Grey.

United Kingdom 2013 Range Rover Sport Supercharged Firenze Red

I saw this car parked in the shopping district of Edinburgh last week and it looks great, however it definitely looks more estate like no doubt about it. Not a criticism more like a note of interest!

Had it been cheaper I may have given enough it a second thought but I'll stick with RRS for the time being. My64 Supercharged Autobiography

I think the lower ride height was to compete with the Macan...as long as it looks and drives good (and bloody works!!) that works for me Cool 2017 Range Rover Velar First Edition - Corris Grey. Delivered 28/07/2017

I saw one on the move, it does sit fairly low and as I said it does have more of an estate car look, but it is pretty and stood out against all the other bank holiday traffic. I often see pre-launch JLR stuff locally and think there must be a senior test engineer living somewhere nearby.

I saw one in Westfield. Didn't quite come across like an estate but it didn't fulfill the SUV appeal that an RRS gives me.

What do you guys think of my idea to go for approved used for a year or two then switch out for a new one after all the dust has settled?

I think at the moment you could probably get a better deal on a new one rather than a used one if you try hard enough Wink 2017 Range Rover Velar First Edition - Corris Grey. Delivered 28/07/2017

As in just by going to a salesperson and asking for a discount, saying the new model is out soon so pls give discount? Lol. Or are you suggesting using a more creative tactic?

Also carwow might be alright

Laughing Use carwow as a starting point and work your way up to a good deal. Some people on here have got up to 10% off and some even more Wink 2017 Range Rover Velar First Edition - Corris Grey. Delivered 28/07/2017

I agree with RRS man I think you would get a better deal on a new one than used, the well specked low mileage used ones are only a few grand less than you can get a discounted new one for, some are even more expensive. Best bet to go to a large dealer group with multiple Land Rover dealerships who all have access to the stock that's coming to the group thats available to purchase, i.e. Stratstone or hunters etc

Also try buyacar, orange wheels etc, similar to carwow, use all the tools available to you to drive the best deal, not everyone buys these cars & they need buyers as much, if not more than we need them!
