how would i know what cost is?
When they say "at cost" they almost certainly mean the cost of the van to them, plus an appropriate amount to cover their other costs and overheads. Only their own Finance dept is likely to know the latter, and even if you asked, they are not going to let you look through their books.

But does it matter? If the price is good enough, does it matter what "at cost" means?

This is what I think
Sinclair are actually giving 12% plus a £1.
Means I am £1 cheaper but have stock, they don't

Buyacar never seem to sell a car!!!
Every time I try to buy a van from them they refuse to take my order

We can do 12% off a Transporter van as well. SO we are £1 cheaper too.....

You can buy outright off us as well, no need to take our financeT:

Steer clear of buyacar they wasted my time over promises but would not commit on specification and delivery was very vague. Cost + £1.00 means absolutely nothing, just a gimmick. Go to a main dealer or specialists like Swiss or Bognor, all will all do a reasonable discount but you will need to push the VW dealers quite hard. I went to two main dealers and was specific about detailed vehicle specifications from the start so I played one off against the other to get a deal I was happy with.

Unfortunately the dealer I did choose (VW Inchcape group, Chelmsford) failed to properly register the vehicle and I spent nearly a month driving an unregistered van around and ended up taking it off the road for a week until they sorted it out. And I'm still waiting for them to return my calls and answer my letters. So in my experience the dealers want your money but aftercare is poor. Therefore a Specialist such as Swiss or Bognor may be a better bet because they seem to look for repeat business and are part of the scene.

Do not use buyacar whatever you do. They are full of empty promises are you will not get your van. I ordered one and after 12 months i still had not received it so i cancelled my order. They are totally useless and you will end up forever chasing them as they never contact you and use excuse after excuse and its never their fault.
