How is this a hot deal? You don't even own the car at the end of it. Makes as much sense as renting a house.

Yes, you pay 1800 quid deposit, then 300 a month for a car you get to drive for 2 years. You could buy a decent car and pay that a month and you own it to resell at the end of it. Why would you do this? To pretend that you are more wealthy than you are? Makes absolutely no sense. Same as renting a house, you pay double what a mortgage costs and you don't own the property at the end of it.

I think it all depends on personal circumstances and needs by my train of thought is exactly the same as yours! I'm sure there's people out there that leasing suits but for me, I would never long term lease. Purchasing makes sense and you have an asset that belongs to you!

You hit the nail on the head there. There's only one reason people drive a new Mercedes and that's for the perceived prestige value.
If you can't afford to buy one, you lease one and swan around in it pretending that you've 'made it'.
To some people 'image' is everything, even if it's fake.

Or the cost of the lease is less than the depreciation.......

wtf? what a lame comment - no **** veyron is a better car....only reason I mentioned Golf was because they're similarly priced.

I was considering a coupe/cabriolet for myself (didn't matter if it was diesel or petrol)....ended up going for the Golf R deal beacasue it was pretty good value.

Cars are never assets unless of course they are one of the very few that appreciate.

Cars lose value. If you buy one new and keep it, the longer you own it the better the value it represents.
If you like to have a new car every 2-3 years then leasing commonly becomes the best option but not always.

Made up deals.
Car 1 purchased for £20k cash. Loses £3k per year for 3 years then sold for £11k. Cost of ownership = £9k
Car 2 leased for £900 deposit plus 36 payments of £250 per month. Handed back in 3 years, totals cost = £9.9k

On face value car 1 is cheaper. However that assumes you either have 0% interest free credit or the capital to buy out right. If you factor in £11k tied up away from a 3% account for 3. Years, you lose £1k interest, so actually costs more.

However if you keep Car 1 for 7 years or more it's starts to be free compared to continual leasing.

If you absolutely MUST have a brand new car, then yes, that argument makes some sense.
If however you buy a car, say, 6 months old, it's arguably effectively like new, but will have depreciated quite a bit in that time.

Which isn't always true either.
I'm considering buying a new Mondeo. Yes it's a terrible ideal privately. However my last car was kept for 10 years, so value now outweighs residual value for me.

A new Mondeo 2.0TDCi Titanium X list is about £23-£24k. I can get one from a broker for £17.5k. However nearly new are £17k so I'm almost cheaper with brand new, with easier rights to reject if it's a bad one.

There are many ways to buy a car, some ways much better for some than others. At the end if the day people buy what is right for them.

Wrong. Ppl on this site are here to find deals. This car is £35k new. It will lose circa £12k in its first 2years through depreciations. Therefore to spend £8k on that period is a deal, no?
Also. If u buy a car u need to have the cash ready or take a loan right? Well a loan for cash to buy a car sees u as the asset meaning your credit score is affected. A lease sees the car as the asset so is better from that perspective.
Ultimately this site is here to share deals. If you understand the benefits of leasing and want one then this is a good deal. It should be voted on that. Not be trolled by opinionated trolls. Not saying you are but comments like yours are wrong and unnecessary.

So I'm wrong and I'm trolling am I? I've re-read my post and I stand by everything I've said.
It's just my opinion at the end of the day, so sorry if you don't like it, but to label me a troll for stating a different opinion to yours is more than a little ironic.

I don't think any leasing deal I've seen on HUKD makes financial sense unless you HAVE (i.e. want) to have a brand new car.
If you can put up with one slightly older then that will almost always make more financial sense. But isn't that wanting a new car all about image and not about finances? Reliability? Well with longer manufacturer warranties these days and plenty of options for aftermarket warranties, that isn't much of an argument either.

My last few cars have cost me way less than £1000/year depreciation and servicing costs. I'm honestly not that bothered whether my superficial neighbours think I've got a cool car or not, it's cost-effective motoring.

You've misunderstood my point. The point is leasing works for some people and when you get a nice brand new car and don't mind losing that money then this is a deal. I am not saying your points are wrong as that is your choice on how to live. If however you don't want to eat into your savings but want a car that matches your salary/lifestyle then this is a viable option. I am looking for a car. I have a house deposit in the bank but need it obviously. I earn well but if I buy a car with my money or take a loan to buy a 2nd hand car then I either lose my house deposit or my credit score is badly affected so the house buying goes out the window. What are my options? A view is that we only have 1 life and in a few years I'll have to have a baby wagon so why not have a decent bit of fun for my last 2 years?
Help me/us though. Instead of criticising the deal/choice give an actual example of a better solution.
Ps. If you read my point, I don't call you a troll, I say that too many ppl on this site act like them when they don't understand leasing.

Ok, the way I read that is you want to have a bit of fun with your car while you're still young enough (fair enough), but you have no real money left to buy one and borrowing more in your situation isn't going to do you any favours.
The house deposit shouldn't be touched as you quite rightly say and it sounds like you're planning a family at some point in the future (believe me that's expensive).

I'd say that you can pick up a quite decent runabout that's also a bit of fun for not much money.
Give me an idea of your budget and requirements for a car and I'll see if I can suggest something.
