surely someone must have an opinion on the best time to buy?

or is it just august in general with the new reg's coming out?

At end of August many buyers will be waiting for the 53 plate, so dealers may be short of quota and open to offers. But your trade-in may not be a plus point. Try about Aug.20th.

Buying new, there are things like end-of-the-month targets and it doesn't matter which car you get as they all come out of the factory the same.

Buying used, if a car is such a good deal that you want to buy it - and with your aim of finding a three year old with a good spec, right colour and under 20k, you'll be looking hard - then it may not be there at the end of the month.

If it is, and worth having, it's probably only just come in, so the salesman will be much more keen to sell you something a little less desirable. I would say that you'd do better to concentrate on the deal in front of you because, if it's any good it's unlikely to be around by the time the salesman is sweating about his end-of-month targets.

Of course, you could be lucky and get both - but do you have the time and the confidence to bet on it?
