Hello! We have a Peugeot 307 SW 1.6 petrol. We are due our fourth baby in the spring and are researching to find a full seven-seater (which could comfortably fit seven adults) preferably with low road tax. We think the full seven-seater is better from a safety point of view and aren't concerned about how this affects boot space. The newer models with low road tax are quite a bit more expensive but I assume are cheaper in the long run! What would you recommend? Value for money and safety essential!.

I was looking at some UK owner forums while researching new automobiles and was struck by the level of discount people seen to achieve. Figures of 15% and 17% seemed very achievable with large "dealer contributions" being mentioned, even on high-spec BMWs and Mercedes. I have never been able to get anything close to this in Ireland. Am I a poor negotiator or do Irish dealers not have the margin to do this? What discount levels are possible in your experience?
