Yes he’s sent me all the details about gap insurance
Is it worth taking out ? I am paying in full for the car. No finance is being used
 
If GAP is cheap enough, and you are keeping it, in "normal" circumstances I'd say yes.
A colleague had 5 year GAP return to invoice on a RAV4, and managed to write it off in the 4th year, getting back the full purchase price, rather than the 50% or so it was actually worth, which means he could buy a new replacement, rather than having to buy someone's cast-off. 

I bought GAP for my Gen4, which was obviously a waste of money as current market value is supposedly £8000 more than I paid- but no doubt my insurer won't pay me more than I declared I purchased it for.


 

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

We also took out Gap lnsurance which is now a waste of money.
You need to call your insurance and update the value. l updated ours to £28,000
While it's no guarantee that you'll get that amount in the event of a total loss, the most you'll get if you told them £20,000 is £20,000
I wasn't charged anything to update the valuation.

I bought TotalLossGap, was £260 for the 5 years RTI/vehicle replacement.

Used car prices are insane at the moment across the board. They have to tank soon, maybe when the Chinese can knock out enough of the chips- industry whispers are for February/March time next year.

Looks like it! At least the second one you are getting to sell on will be worth more as it will be on a 71 plate.

nope, gave it back to the dealer. Didn't fancy it, the market looks stagnated.
Now sold on to the next person on the list, who is a dealer lol
