so it's actually over £200 a month really accounting for the deposit?
The OP has all the correct details including total price. To quote an average price would be incorrect and lead to confusion.
​You couldn't be more wrong if you tried. The ONLY way deals should be compared is based on an all in average monthly cost, as everything else is smoke and mirrors.
Stop talking nonsense, the OP has provided all the necessary information, people don't need to be spoon fed. If your comparing like for like offers in a spreadsheet fair enough but that's for the individual.
Mobile phone deals posted on here with an upfront have the initial payment, then the monthly fee, as that's exactly what you would pay the supplying company. Not an average monthly sum.

I'm usually in agreement with you Jamie, but not on this occasion. When you get a phone with an upfront payment, it's usually £50-100 (unless it's the new Iphone with almost no new features, but a designated new model number), not half of the total contract cost as this is.

Huge upfronts and headlining low monthlies are not in the least bit impressive when you look at the total cost. Average monthlies are a good comparator with PCP costs (where you can choose how much deposit, if any, to put down) to see if leasing is a good deal.

​You are the one talking nonsense, and obviously have never worked in finance. People DO compare these deals, just at if it were in a spreadsheet, and most people have a feel for what they would be willing to spend on average. Everytime these deals get posted, and someone posts the data line this without an average rate that is all in for comparison purposes, they get slated, and for good reason.

By your logic I could have posted this deal at only £1 a month with just £4800 up front, and you would have voted it hot. Feel free to try and defend it but you're just digging a deeper hole.
If my memory serves me correctly, this was being advertised @ £80 x 23mths and £2490 initial dep just a few weeks ago by the same dealer.
Why has it increased, especially as the new model is due out next year!

Am looking at the Hyundai offers at present they seem like good cars and the 5 yr warranty looks amazing!
Anybody had experience of Hyundai ? Please?
​I have had 2 i30 cars. both 1.4 petrol. totally reliable with No complaints. I was getting 52mpg so was happy with that for a petrol. I purchased my first one in 2009 when they were only £9895 brand new.
Wow 53mpg for a petrol, I only get between 28 and 32mpg when I'm lucky. What engine size is yours?
Mine isn't a Hyundai.
I have always got excellent economy out of my cars and its not about driving like a granny, just no hard accelerating, getting up the gears quickly, and planning ahead so hardly need to use the brakes, put it this way i have never had a car need new brake pads or a clutch despite putting 100,000 miles on some of my cars. A lot of people think you should not use 5th/6th gear below 40mph, I have always used 5th/6th as low as 30mph as most cars are still doing at least 1300rpm when it top gear so not a problem.
I now have a skoda fabia 1.4 diesel and get 67mpg, £40 of fuel gets me 535 miles.

I can be heavy on the pedal from time to time. But I actually get a higher MPG cruising at 80. But then again its a V6 2.5, which is why its a bit hungry. I can get around 400 miles on a full tank which is around £65.

The Rapid is an Astra equivalent, the Octavia is...size wise...more a competitor for the Mondeo class.
An Octavia is based on the same VAG platform as the Golf. A Mondeo is larger, id think the Skoda Superbe would be equivalent.
Correct - Octavia/Golf = Focus. Superb/Passat = Mondeo
Im no expert, just happen to have owned a few VAG cars. I'd love to know what it is about car threads that attracts people who seem to know even less than me, but feel a need to express emphatic opinions about cars?
Eh? In terms of size of platform across the models this is correct. Neither emphatic nor expert, but true.

Just so we're straight your argument is that cars are nothing but mere appliances and frippery and badges mean nothing? While at the same time Volkswagen must be commiting financial suicide by selling a brand without cachet? You then somehow bring Brexit into it which I guess explains your disjointed thought process.
Let's consider some of your other points, the ones that don't concern celebrity paedophiles that is.
The brand is so "Toxic" (your fave word, eh?) that they are cheap and resale values are poor?
Except of course Skodas have an above average second hand value:http://www.whatcar.com/news/vw-seat-skoda-and-audi-models-retain-resale-values-despite-dieselgate-scandal/
Volkswagen didn't get to where they are by operating Skoda has a ramshackle operation that would lose them money. It's clear that it's a successful member of their portfolio. I'm sure however if you give Wolfsburg a call and pass on your expertise they'll be incredibly grateful.
Still it's a moot point anyway. Once the pound is worthless after Brexit no one will have any money to buy new cars regardless. But we'll have plenty of sovereignty and control to go around. Whatever they are.

Swings and roundabouts. I've owned a Skoda before VW takeover. The bodywork was terrible. Razor thin sheet metal on the wheel arches that rusted just by looking at it. This was very much improved when VW took over. However they made some puzzling cost cutting measures that appeared to just be an attempt to grab as much money from owners in future. For example. On the old 1.3l Skoda engine the thermostat housing was cast aluminium metal. If the thertmostat failed you needed a new thermostat £5, and a gasket <£1. When the Fabia 1.4l 8v MPI was released based on the same engine, it had a plastic thermostat housing. The problem with this thermostat is it was held in tension against a spring with two plastic prongs. Eventually the plastic breaks up internally, and the whole thing has to be replaced at a cost of £50. And that's the thermostat housing failing, not the thermostat itself.

I personally think Volkswagen have too much brand cachet, and Skoda not enough. But it's clearly VW Group's mission to fill a bit of the market to try justify higher prices for the "better" VWs. We're seeing the exact same thing with Renault bringing out Dacia, but having just been to a Renault/Dacia dealer yesterday I can say the difference in quality between the two is bigger than between Skoda and VW. I picked up a Duster brochure, sat in the Duster, put the brochure back X)

You do know how leases work, right?
"only a £2490 initial rental"

LOL cold
Only yesterday I test drove the Octavia with this engine but with DSG box . I have to say I was impressed by the engine and the steering but less so with the suspension. I found the 1.4TSI 150PS engine to be a sweet quiet engine that smoothly delivers adequate power, (much nicer to drive than the 1.6tdi that I also tried). Though I have real doubts if it can deliver anywhere near the claimed combined 55.4 mpg (58.9 with DSG). Anyone know the "real mpg" i.e. not what the computer says because they always give a rosy figure.

it would seem that 45.9% of drivers disagree with you and prefer diesels (plus more prefer electric power). I'm amongst them and can't really see many advantages in those inefficient spark ignition motors that wear out after only 150,000 miles...
Ho hum.
Electric I can understand, I very nearly bought a Renault Zoe recently as it was a lovely little car, just a little slow and short on range for my needs.
As for diesel I'll just never get my head around it, people are used to buying them I guess, since being lied to by the government that they were a 'green' alternative to petrol. What a joke that is, they're horrendous. Your point about petrol vehicles wearing out? I've owned plenty of cars (including Alfa's) that've done more than that sort of mileage and have still run fine. And even at that mileage they're quieter and smoother than a diesel, mainly because they're not as highly stressed as a modern diesel has to be.
If modern diesels were over-stressed they would fail quicker. They don't for high milers. There is a reason high mileage drivers almost invariably go diesel. They also don't smell either (your first post) - i don't get out at work and have to scrub up due to the car i drive. You have also omitted to mention better torque so far superior for high load applications such as towing as well as the obvious better economy and range. Many modern diesels are a joy to drive, smooth and refined. You can barely tell they are diesel once warmed and have great mid range punch for over-taking. True VW were caught out but they also produce plenty of other diesel engines that perform just as well as those that cheated without resorting to hoodwinking the tester (mine being one of them). I have owned more petrol cars than diesel and would happily purchase either in the future. Its horses for courses really.
Exactly: diesels are more efficient because they have higher compression ratios, rev slower (hence produce more torque), last longer (because they rev slower and have to be stronger due to high compression) and produce much less CO2 than Otto cycle engines. Petrol motors are lighter (because they do not have to be so strong), have higher specific power outputs (due to higher engine speeds) and produce less NOX. Neither is perfect, but each suits some circumstances better than others. In the UK with very similar tax regimes on the fuels the market for cars is pretty equally divided with electricity and LPG being bit players (for the time being).

I think we will have to agree to disagree. I (and 45.9% of drivers) like diesels, in particular the compression ignition engine's inherent advantage in thermodynamic efficiency (over the spark ignition engine) that will always lead to better specific fuel efficiency for diesel cars, which must be good for the environment and our pockets.
No government (not even the Labour administrations that presided over the increase in popularity of diesels) has lied to us owners, the information is plain to see.
There are advantages and demerits of diesels and petrol cars (I have one of each), but very clearly neither is 'complete crap' (your words), so let's just leave it there.

They still had this in stock yesterday. Probably the last place in UK with such price because they preordered a few in advance. Yes-lease told me that non-outdoor model is now discontinued and they cannot place any more orders.
​Do you happen to know delivery time and which colours in stock please?
Probably too late now but they listed a few metallic colours + red (which I think looks best on Monte Carlo). Delivery seemed close to year end.

Lol why would I want a second hard car?
Lol because if you have to go for this crappy finance deal the probable explanation is that you can't even afford a second hand car.

Or you can't afford a second hand because things that are used are money pits and owning a deprecating asset is the road to financial ruin.
Ordered today! leeds are £1500 more for same deal!
Currently driving one of these, just be wary of going overboard with the extras. Think the figure was £8 per month for every extra £100. Heated Seats/Window Tints/Leather/etc etc start to add up... Happy with the car though, its very nice to drive. Simpsons service was great and they delivered it for free which was a nice surprise.

Should mention that you should take your test drive over speed bumps and make sure you are happy with firm suspension. The scout may suit for people who aren't.

All the lease companies are promoting the Yeti Mote Carlo at the moment.
for less 300 difference the OP's post is a no brainer..
At G2L excess miles are 4.2p, so £168 for the 4k miles difference over the contract.
Still a saving of £140 if you do 10k miles per year, plus you save more if you go under that mileage...
are you sure that 4.2 inc vat?
have you got a formal quote from them... what the lead time on this car btw?

Yeah, I've got a formal quote.

Just double checked, it's 4.32p per mile inc VAT so my figures in the previous post are a couple of quid off. 4k miles is £172.

12 week lead in.

An outdoor car? Whatever next, an indoor dishwasher?

Well my dishwasher prefers the outdoors.
The 170PS engine was discontinued by Skoda in April, so this will be one of the last chances to get one of these brand new.

From Skoda Geneva Motorshow press kit:
The ŠKODA Yeti will be available from the end of May with new EA 211-series 1.2 and 1.4 TSI petrol engines: 81 kW (110 PS) 1.2 TSI, 92 kW (125 PS) 1.4 TSI and 110 kW (150 PS) 1.4 TSI. The new EU6 diesel engines (EA 288) for the Yeti will be the 81 kW (110 PS) 2.0 TDI and the 110 kW (150 PS) 2.0 TDI. The 125 kW (170 PS) 2.0 TDI will be discontinued.

What is this love for POS diesel engines? They're about to penalise diesel owners soon anyway.
Not this one they won't - it's an EU6 compliant version, with low CO2 and low NOx emissions. Some new tech direct injection petrol models produce more particulate matter (and smaller, more harmful particulates which stay in the air longer at that) than a DPF equipped EU5/EU6 compliant diesel as petrols ironically become more diesel-like in their running as they chase better fuel economy.
You need some up to date facts. Get rid of the dirty old taxis and buses, EU5 and 6 compliant diesels are infinitely cleaner than diesels over over 10 years ago.
I'm sticking with petrol and petrol-hybrid which I think is the future. Diesels may be okay for now, but they're expensive to repair with those DPFs that go wrong. I also can't bear the sound they make and the smell of diesel exhaust fumes.
What's to go wrong on a DPF unless you're clogging it by only going to the corner shops and back? They're basically a honeycomb-like catalytic structure within a box between your engine's exhaust manifold and teh exhaust itself. The structure traps the particulates and burns them off when the engine gets the DPF hot enough to do so. Nothing majorly complicated with them.
I would imagine that pretty soon the petrol engines will have DPFs, when they're all running direct injection as they also produce particulates. The sound and smell of diesels - obviously basing that on being stuck downwind of an ancient taxi's tailpipe - an EU6 compliant diesel's output is cleaner than that of an EU6 compliant petrol, and the newest diesels are quite quiet these days (especially the VAG and BMW 6 cylinder units) - they tick rather than clatter at idle, and when actually moving they're quieter than a petrol because they're operating at around 40% fewer revs at any given speed when cruising. Also, petrols have added Benzene (anti-knock) - one of the nastiest carcinogens about. I'd take a well maintained diesel over a neglected petrol anyday when it comes to exhaust cleanliness. As always, complete combustion is the key. If all of the most harmful components of either fuel are fully combusted then you don't have an issue.
Electricity isn't clean while we're using fossil fuels to generate it. Some seriously outdated concepts you have there. If all we had on the roads were EU5/6 compliant cars then the government would be calling the petrol models the dirty ones.
I've just swapped a Golf 7 GTD for a Golf 7 R, mainly for thrills, but am under no illusions that the R is a cleaner car, or a quieter car.
At 80mph the R is doing 3100 revs and the GTD is doing 2200 revs (both in 6th gear) - the R is noticeably noisier when cruising. Early days on the R's running-in, but a 29mpg average, compared with the GTD's 48mpg average - less CO2, less NOx, it has a DPF filter to get rid of the particulates, and I never needed to clean the exhaust tips. After a week's ownership, the R's inner 2 exhaust tips have a light dusting of soot - I think that tells you everything you need to know about emissions cleanliness between the 2 cars.
I obviously didn't buy the R to save the planet.
My journeys are quite short on the commute. Hybrid is not out-dated at all! I think you need to see where manufacturers are going before you make a statement like that. Diesel is doomed in the long term.

Your opinion of what is clean and what is dirty is outdated, by about 10 years.Diesel tech has come a long way for particulates and NOx- a brand new EU6 compliant diesel is cleaner than a brand new EU6 compliant direct injection petrol in terms of what comes out of the tail pipe.

If all the car manufacturers embrace cylinder deactivation (like the VAG ACT 1.4TSI 150ps unit) and they can't find a way to make it work for diesels (they currently can't) then i'd agree that diesels are doomed in the longer term as petrol mpg catches up with diesel mpg. Right now though a new EU6 compliant one isn't the filthy noise box you are making it out to be.

The next model should be called Skoda Awesome - if it's better than superb. Otherwise it'll be Skoda Alright, Skoda Mediocre or Skoda Sh1tty...

hmmm.. you seem to be missing the fact it is a lease, you don't have to worry about repairs, it is under warranty.

Some wise man on here said:
If it appreciates, buy it, if it depreciates, lease it!!!
A few of us did :) I'll just C&P from the other thread.... ;)

For those who understand lease deals: Great deal, right? Might not be a suitable car for you personally, but no denying the financials! Good work, have a gold star. Feel content that you aren't being completely backward in refusing to understand differing points of view.

For those who DON'T understand leasing (and that appears to be a LOT of you):
* This is a NEW car, not used
* Depreciation on a new car bought outright will be MORE than what the lease cost is over 24 months on this car.
* No registration fee to pay on the car's first year of tax
* No VED to pay on new leased car
* Used cars a bit older will need MOT
* Both old and new will need a service!
* Old cars ... ALSO DEPRECIATE! Good god -no surprise there, so don't ignore it
* Buying a used car for £5-£6k requires £5-£6k of cash up-front (i.e. NOW!). That is money you need to either save, or tie up in your vehicle. A risk - especially if your valuation of your car is not what someone else is prepared to pay. It works both ways, however!
* Leased cars (new, I might add!) spread costs out over the term of the lease. This is called cash-flow. This is fundamental to business and life in general. Smooth cash flow, means a smooth life. No bottle-necks.
* Both new/old need insurance
* Old car bought outright means as much mileage as you like, but increased likelihood of repairs required for incremental mileage
* You can sell your used/owned outright car at any time. A lease is a contract. A contract is legally binding. They're not easy to get out of. Buyer beware.
* Both cars can make use of GAP insurance.
* Used cars are not the most recent model in many cases. Some people don't care and view cars as a simple tool. Others may require to be in a newer vehicle for work purposes. People have different wants and needs.

Golden rules for everyone:
If you can't afford the payments, don't do it!
If you don't want a NEW car, don't do it!
If you want to take the risks on buying a used car and the associated benefits of it being reliable and costing next to nil to maintain, before selling onwards, don't do it!
If you don't understand, don't do it!

Platinum rules for everyone:
If it appreciates, BUY IT.
If it depreciates, RENT IT.
n.b. there are occasional exceptions to the rule. Cars are not really one of those exceptions.

If you're still unsure:
Think of a holiday. You spend £2000+. At the end of it, you don't get to keep the hotel to sell on. Nor the swimming pool, aircraft or airport. You have nothing to show for it except a tan if you're lucky. You have had the benefit of enjoyment.

A car is not dissimilar. Lease deals are great for people who want new cars and don't want to tie up vast sums of cold, hard cash up-front. Plain and simple facts. Easy.

If you STILL don't get it:
Log out, and don't try and reply, ever, on a lease deal. There is little hope for you.

tldr; these deals get hot for a reason. If you don't understand, put some time aside and try to, before commenting.

I was that wise man

Cold, its a Skoda. I don't care how good a deal it is or that it probably is a decent car to drive. I look at people in Skoda's and feel bad that they couldn't afford a vw or an audi
Seriously? Voting a deal for a Skoda cold because it's a Skoda? You really haven't grasped how this site works have you. This is the exact same engine that you get in a Golf GTD, it just has a different badge and includes Sat Nav.... (and yes I drive a Golf GTD, but would happily swap for one of these)
It beats me why someone who scoffs at people saving money by buying a Škoda is on a site named Hot UK Deals... no doubt the type of person who will find him/herself in debt keeping up with the Joneses. :D
You're not saving money by buying a Skoda, you're buying a different product. Having the exact same engine as a Golf doesn't make it the same car. Quality is compromised everywhere else in order to save costs and appeal to the lower end of the market.
Do you really think there is a hierarchy of build quality in VAG? That Audis are better screwed together than VWs, that are in turn given more care and attention than Seats, with Skodas being thrown together by neanderthals at the bottom of the ladder?
They are all built the same way, to the same standard, using the same building techniques, all operatives trained to the same standard, using the same equipment. Time is money, doing it right first time saves money, standardising techniques and equipment within a manufacturing operation the size of VAG's saves lots of time and money. If you understood high volume lean/optimised manufacturing at all then you'd get this.
You don't get a hand built masterpiece if you buy an everyday Audi A1/A3/A4/A5/A6 (you need to buy a Bentley, A8 or VW Phaeton for that), and you don't get skip on wheels when you buy a Skoda. Switch differences, optional equipment differences and softer plastics higher up the chain of brand hierarchy are what you'll see between the VAG marques. A recently rented 2.0TDI Skoda Superb had less wind noise on the move than my MK7 GTD had.
They're clearly cheaper to make, which is why they're sold cheaper. Yes they look nice when new but compare a 6 year old Skoda to a goldfish of the same age and it's clear which one was made using inferior materials. If they really were the same it would make far more sense to make them identical and just change the badge. Car components are costed to fractions of pence, and money saved wherever possible. Whilst engine and running gear are identical, cost savings are made on all components unique to the Skoda (body panels, dash, seats, trim etc) it is here where savings are made and quality suffers with fit and finish being inferior to premium car brands. I'm not suggesting that an audi will be hand built but it will be finished to a higher standard with tighter tolerances applies to components and hence they cost more.

Most of the savings gleaned from owning a Skoda are funded by the lack of development costings assigned to the brand. VAG has the Audi and VW brands taking most of that hit - they get the newer tech first generally. Also there's the advertising costs to consider, Audi advertise everywhere, they're all over recent films (generally getting wrecked in the latest Marvel films) - it all costs money that Skoda doesn't spend.

They don't build shoddiness into the car. With well designed parts - body panel gaps and the way they're put together doesn't differ between the marques within VAG. The right way to do things will always be more efficient in a high volume manufacturing situation, and therefore more cost effective. Do you really think that VWs or Audis are built with more fettling time allowed for the assembly workers (for all non-automated jobs) to get it just right, and the Skodas just get thrown together? Ridiculous. Everything different between an Audi/VW/Seat/Skoda of the same size and class is skin deep (body panel styling, dash plastics, optional equipment). Audi quite often uses a bit of Aluminium in their body panels (mainly the doors and wings, for weight saving rather than sturdiness), but as far as reliability and warranty go, Skodas generally rate higher than VW or Audi on satisfaction or reliability surveys - perhaps the owners have lower expectations, cause less of a fuss when things go wrong, or perhaps it's because they get the old tech which has been tried and tested?

I'm no Skoda fanboi, i've never owned one, but i've had a few as courtesy cars, and recently had a Skoda superb 140TDI courtesy car for a week. It was as refined as the equivalent Golf. I recently bought a Golf R, and spent a while deciding whether i'd rather have an S3. With only £700 between the 2 cars, the main difference between the 2 was if I wanted more standard equipment (Golf), or half leather seats and marginally more of the softer plastics lower down on the door cards, with a slightly different way of navigating menus. If I honestly believed that the Audi for what amounted for 2% more money was any better screwed together than the Golf then i'd have bought one in a heartbeat.

It's the same old troll trap nonsense that makes deals like this painful to post amd read.

You get idiots coming in and spouting nonsense and about how buying a second hand car that's 4 or 5 years old is better than doing a lease...... its the equivalent of someone posting a "flights to New York only 299" deal only for the same type of moron to come in and either

A)express how New york is over rated and how he/she prefers a weekend in a tent in Scunthorpe - at least he/she has the tent at the end of the holiday to show for it

B) comments about how you can get a boat to Belize from Southampton via portugal then hire a car and drive from Belize through to new York for only 270.....

Either way, it derails the deal and means people like me who are interested in looking at this deal and geniuinely discussing the merits of it are prohitbitted from doing so as our voices are drowned out in a sea or retards.....


Best comment by far
Nothing against leasing and as with all ways of obtaining a vehicle they have their place, just do your research before deciding what is best for you and what you want from your vehicle and agreement, because if your circumstances change you could be stuck with a vehicle that is no longer suitable.

With regards to this particular deal there are some things to be mindful of.

Your leasing a diesel and its a Skoda - Your friends will say thats a wise choice of vehicle, its both economical and a bit less to buy than the equivalent Audi, VW, so 2 big ticks.

Then you tell them your leasing the vehicle for 2 years,so then they ask why did you not lease something a little more adventurous or something you would not consider owning, your reply, well it was a good deal over 2 years and its a diesel, they agree the monthly repayments are good considering its a diesel and it would repay itself over the 2 years compared to an equivilant petrol version once you factor in the price per litre of diesel v petrol and the mileage you cover, you then go on to tell them your restricted to 8k miles per annum and anything over would be charged, now they are really starting to question your logic and you start to think about the deal you have signed up to.

But then they say..............














































Well at least when you come to sell it the mileage will be really low and Diesels do tend to hold their value better than petrol models (_;)

I see that Simpsons Skoda are also doing the Octavia vRS also £199 per month (plus £1500 deposit)... £6077 in total or £253 pm all in. I think that's the best 24 month deal I've seen on that vehicle.

Be quick tho, the offer expires at the end of the month.

Why on earth would you want a new 4x4 rotting if you drive under 8000 miles a year? Not a deal for someone who needs a car.

That told me, I've only done 14k in my 2012 one.
Although I have started working from home so that may have something to do with it
I see you get the road tax thrown in. That's worth £360.
I would guess that this is down to an evenings number crunching/research and try to predict the future value of the vehicle in question, also add in the servicing and warranty costs. Ask what would the cars cost be every year, including the depreciation, new and second hand. Remember new cars don't require MOT for the first few years 2 or 3 I cant remember, that can put several hundred pounds on a years cost.
good deal still like the TDI CR version

How is it tripe? If you want to be in a new car every few years, then why would you buy?
But the saying "If it depreciates then lease it, if it appreciates then buy it" infers that buying cars is the wrong thing to do, which it isn't for everyone. But people just swallow it up whole and take it as gospel....
I'm not knocking this deal, or car leasing in general, only that BS saying that I see quoted time and again because they read it on the internet..... if you want to lease an asset, someone else has to buy that asset and lease it to you. They aren't going to absorb the depreciation themselves, they are going to charge you for doing so, with a contingency margin on top.
At best leasing protects you from unexpected depreciation, not expected depreciation!!

Golf R deal over two years works out at a lot less than expected depreciation , so many people cant seem to grasp this leasing carry on lol

Or its just a well known b/s line trotted out by ill educated people who don't know what they are talking about but want to sound like they do.
Eh? You don't know me. Clown. I'd rather pay £200pm for a decent car to drive rather than £20k with the inevitable depreciation. Yes I give it back but cars do not last forever or make money. Nothing to do with education you stuck up knoob.

Here's a few brackets (()).... just in case you need a few more
Ha ha, so much irony in your comment.... I don't know you but then you know me enought to call me a clown and "knoob" (sic). Anyway my comments were based on posts that you wrote, so were accurate on the basis that YOU wrote them and made yourself look silly.
And you also missed the point massively (on purpose to suit your (non-)argument....) I said nothing about whether leasing was right or wrong, rather your comment of "If it loses money rent it, if it makes money buy it. Simple maths." Its a load of old tripe.... end of!

My apologies bigmaz, I deleted my subsequent post whilst you were quoting it, and then wrote it better in the one above. Just in case you do wondered where it went :)

Haha, nae probs mate, I was a bit confused for a second :D mind you, doesnt take much to confuse me!! Especially before my morning coffee, lol

I'm afraid your assumption on what you think I'm assuming is wrong. I am making no assumptions, just replying to what he actually wrote.

Repeating myself here but here by let me try and explain it like this. If he had said:

"If you only want a car for two years then leasing is cheap than buying"

I would have agreed with such a statement but no mention of 2 years was made.

The blanket statement (again) was "if it depreciated lease it, and if it appreciates then buy it" and again it is this blanket statement that I corrected.

Aye, but I think its obvious that he isnt saying its cheaper than buying second hand, or buying new and keeping beyond paying it off :) I understood what he meant, dont think he needed to clarify.
