Dropped by the dealer today to pass on my insurrance certificate and arrange final bits and pieces to take delivery of my nice new Red S5 on the 1st March, only a week away now. I didn't see the car as still in secure compound away from the dealership so hopefully make the pick up next week all the better. I can't wait.

I also purchased GAP insurrance for 450 GBP. This means if your car is damage by what ever means other then by me as a deliberate act doing something, they will cover the GAP between what the insurers will pay, effectively cost of a new car. It's through Norwich union and the dealer I have bought car from have the dealt to supply the new car for up to 3 years.

Anybody out there taken out similar cover and had a reason to use it on an Audi or another?

Hi, You may have paid over the odds I was offered th Audi Gap this week for £295 from there starting point of £595. I bought the Hitachi Gap for £146 which is return to invoice. Did you sign up or could you change your mind?

I take delivery of my S5 on the 1st march phantom black silver interior.I declined the gap insurance and told the dealer i had a quote for the finance from another company. They said they would give me a better deal on the finance and threw in the gap insurance for free. It may be worth you asking the question.

Forgot to say audi are giving me 1 weeks free insurance cover. Is this the norm for all dealerships? Salesman said it ensures a smooth hand over.

GAP INsurance

Hi

The GAP I have purchased is RVI (Replacement Vehicle) There are others RTI (Return To Invoice) and VRI (Value Return Invoice), both the later value car at the invoice you paid or cars value now. These are cheaper insurances, the RVI version replaces the car for you with a new car of same type etc assuming its still available so new get a new car even at say 2 year 255 days not just a difference between what you paid and todays price, The later have limits e.g. max pay out 10K where as RVI does it all for you. I check a couple of sites and premiums range from 425 to 529 so I don't appear to have over paid. Also my dealer has the contract with Norwich Union as the GAP insurers so best of both worlds.

The dealer showed me a A8 he is replacing, poor chap only had it 9 months and got caught in the floods and his car was a right off, dealer is replacing with new.
