Was this brand new or pre-registered?

Can't see anything similar online, did you haggle for this or was it an offer advertised online?

Like any of these deals i dont see it as hassle free?. Well it is if you like to lose £3293. PLus you gotta worry about your mileage, the average mileage in the UK is 10,000 miles per year. So restricting you to 7,000 could likely potentially result in your catching the bus for the latter part of the year, defeating the point of having a car.
In my person opinion, i would get a TDI vw for £2000 ish, keep it MORE than 3 years and i doubt your repair/service bills will ever reach £1000s in this car in the years you own it.
Each to their own though.
You paint a lovely picture of how easy it easy to buy a 2k car 2nd hand and have the time of your life.
In reality any VW TDI you are picking up at that price will have done some serious mileage and be due for some expensive service schedules even assuming that nothing goes wrong which is certainly not a given. Tax will be a lot more, as will fueling costs, insurance and pretty much every motoring costs.
Well, i have been using 14k to 19k cars as local run arounds and going out cars at the weekend. I then decided to purchase a cheaper car for local run arounds/school runs..etc. First bought a mini 1.4diesel for £1000, sold it 5 months later for £1100 spent £0 on it. Then purchased a vw tdi for £2100, had that for 2 months now and no issues, had one before for 3 years and like i say never had a single issues. Hoping to keep it for a good 3 years this one, and it should sell for the price i paid for it in 3 years time so no loss there.
These cars do not need expensive servicing like you suggest. They need a service every 2 years and the service parts are cheap for it. In fact, i service my own cars so the labour cost is zero once again. My friends vw tdi is on 269k miles, never had a issue. Mines 100k.
​Kudos simply for a polite logical and reasoned comeback. I'm still a lease fan, but I do understand your reasoning. Horses for courses and each to his own, but I really am hoping you get the hassle free period you envisage. Best Wishes.
I can see the merit of both choices having only bought new once, 20 years ago. and have been a S/H sub £2000 guy since then , but as I mentioned in another thread my last 4 MOTs have cost me £500+ each, so this kind of deal is getting more appealing the more I think about it....
I had an old Toyota that cost £300 that I used to go 4 miles to work and then back every day for the last 7/8 years, which has cost me next to nothing, but was getting to the point where that was changing. I also have a top spec Mini countryman that I lease, and my wife drives that. Drove past a little peugeot 207 convertible in white in a garage by me a few weeks ago. Couple of years old, looked nice and shiny and was under £10k, and I just bit :-) So I've got both types of deal. I just like the peace of mind the lease gives me against costs on what could be an expensive car.

I got ripped off on this kind of deal.

Took my 7 year old Audi in for a health check, the dealer said I should get a new car, so ended up costing me over £350pm.

Thoughtful
we’d like to offer you a free Winter Health Check.
No such thing as a free lunch. All the things they are 'checking' are the cars consumables the clues is in the "any recommended work will be discussed with you. "
And you can bet that a main dealers prices will be much higher than the deals here. All these items are supposed to be checked at the service and the MOT anyway.

You don't have to buy any of the recommendations though. I have two free health checks with BMW every year and it's never cost me anything in 10 years, plus you get a nicely cleaned car when you go back. :)
When I got the spring health check they didn't even bother with the hard sell. Was nothing wrong with my car so just went home with a free car wash and brand new wipers. I don't think they'll make things up to try and sell you stuff you don't need.

Edited By: khald on Dec 08, 2016 23:23
How can anybody mark this hot, when it's fairly obvious it's all just a scam to get you to take your Mercedes into the dealership so they can then find all manner of things which need fixing, as they say there's no free lunch.

It could possibly be a clean or change to the air/pollen filter for the air conditioning. I may be wrong but forgive me, I don't drive ;-)

I submitted a request via their website and got a call and offered if for £35. This is a big con.

Doesn't sound right...
Check here: Summer_Health_Check

Were they offering you the full check with re-gas perhaps for £35? Link indicated the air conditioning treatment alone will be free.. I took the spring offer just a couple of weeks ago and had my wipers replaced free of charge.


No, it didn't include a recharge. As soon as I got the sales pitch for £35 worth of sale, I excused myself and saved some time.
I sent request never recoeved a call back

i had booked my car into mercedes stratford, i arrived on the day and was informed that i would not be getting the wiper blades changed - as they needed to be the ones with the yellow dot, as i couldn't be asked with their rude receptionist, i let myself be easily fobbed off, and left to find my car wasn't even washed nor vacuumed. at this point i just shrugged it off, and worte the dealership off - as i have had previous dealing with them - mostly negative.

on my way home, i called mercedes, who rebooked it into the loughton branch, this time i was offered tea/coffee/coke, told my wiper blades would be done and once all was complete, my car was sparkling clean, waiting for me right outside the entrance!

lesson learnt: "avoid mercedes stratford folks"

free tea/coffee/coke - tick
free wash & vac - tick
free wiperblades - tick
free healthcheck - tick
I will draw a three pointed star on the front hood of my banged up kia and have it shining
My girlfriend took the car in today for the spring health check.... Quite disappointed if I'm honest they recommended 2 new rear tyres priced at £90 a corner needless to say we didn't get them.

No wash & vac as they said it wasn't included

No free wiper blades as they thought ours were fine and my girlfriend didn't want to protest too much

but oh well what was I expecting?
Registered yesterday evening and got a call today from my chosen dealer to arrange an appointment
So, did anyone go? Would be great to hear of others' experience of getting the free wiper blade :P

Mr Mac
Any safety info always welcomed. Come on the rest of the UK cars....Why not put in the ICE (InCase of Emergency) info too like a phone number and relationship (i.e. wife parents company etc)

Really that should be in your phone anyway as if the car's a write off (a key reason for needing that info in the first place) the last thing a paramedic will want to do is sit at the scene of the collision until they obtain it from the car. I'm all for that information being stored in the car as a back up if your phones gone AWOL but I'd be concerned about security of that information and how likely it could be restored when the car gets sold on.

I prefer to keep my I.C.E. information on my phone as the top contact so it's the first one to check without scrolling through.

Why is your phone not password/code locked?

Most phones now (may be IOS doesn't since Apple are backwards) have a ... "if lost please contact....." (phone owner info) scrolling on the lock screen anyway

PS if you do a DIY job, make sure you select the recirculation option on your AC or you'll just vent it straight out :-)


Good advice.
Whilst you're at it, change the pollen filter/cabin filter.
Kwik fit charge more but includes a full regas with a guarantee that as many cars often end up with an AC pump fault due to lack of use - if the regas does not work then you dont pay!!! Paid £45 and ice cold - so peace of mind knowing AC works properly

Did my Lexus yesterday bought 2 cans from Amazon £11.99 for both. It was the easiest job ever.
Leave air con on full for 10 mins start can spraying and close doors.
car air con system now fresh and clean.
£30 for something that costs £6 and takes 10 mins to do, Hmm let me think!!!
The gas in checked and topped up too, will cost you 30 plus quid plus hassle to top up gas at home.
PS if you do a DIY job, make sure you select the recirculation option on your AC or you'll just vent it straight out :-)
This is not a regas, the system is cleansed by running a deodoriser through it.

The smell initially is like the pink liquid you gargle with at the dentist.

It's expensive but then you're paying a main dealer and you will get any levels topped up too. Some want the stamp on the service book.

Not a bad deal but not exactly ground breaking either.

I don't give a toss what you or anyone else thinks

You obviously do as you've wasted a lot of time and energy trying to prove yourself to everyone.

No, just putting a presumptuous fool on the internet right.

Ian182

You were giving it the big "I am" by saying you turned down a £10k payrise.

You said you turned it down "purely because I wasn't prepared to give 50 pence of £1 to the taxman".

You made no mention of having to do an extra 10 hours a week for this £10k. In that case, it's not really a payrise, more a change of job role.

Correct me if I am wrong, but never once did I say I turned down 10k. 10k it was an example but if you had paid attention you would of realised this. Stop clutching at straws, my point is completely and utterly valid and the sensible option if you are smart with your money. I was and still am, my only vice is cars (and gold but im rubbish at that so I'll stick to driving)

Also, I'm fairly sure I know what my job roles have been as and when they changed unless you somehow know different.


Now, you can come back and make another snide comment just to make sure you get the last word in, pathetic.

I think you care a bit too much.

Remember that the take home on £100k is only £64k and that's without pre-tax pension contributions, so that's only £5400 a month roughly, so if you buy a car at £70k on finance over three years to own rather than hand back, that's nearly £2000 a month over 3 years, not taking into account the massive depreciation on a car like that, probably 40 - 60 %.

My previous employment was far less than your magical £100k but I also had the choice of either a company car or 'cash-for-cars' which would have covered the majority of this finance deal.
But, I'd never have chosen this deal because of the final payment. And not being able to get all the work related junk in the boot.

You'd also lose a third of your income in taxable deductions at source if you look at the taxation on this as a benefit.
Taxable value on this for 2013-2014 is 25% of list = £17405
Annual tax = £3480 @20% or £6962 @ 40% Less than £300/600 per month
Source = here but you may have to flll in the model details.

Yeah of course, with my driving style I usualy take 50% the figures, so for me to get 25mpg on a 3ltr engine - YES ! thats brilliant.

By the way, reading through the comments and I must say I agree 100% with most of your views. Not going to drudge it all up, but I have been in very similar positions as you.

Its a BMW 6 series but the 4 door version, still looks coupe-esque- you get 12k dealer contribution on the M sport and 0% finance, 4 seats and the stats are brilliant- 0-60 5.2 secs, and supposedly 50mpg - this is for the 640d.

Yeah they said my X5 would do 40mpg, I even queried it and was assured it would do 40mpg on an extra urban cycle. In reality it does less than 26mpg on cruise control at 74mph (on the speedo which is 70 on the gps) over a single 500 mile trip.

In BMWs defence, their testing is correct and would no doubt produce 40mpg as the tests are done in very controlled conditions and not on the public roads.

If you drive it everywhere at 42mph, it will do over 30mpg but I have never seen their quoted figures (maybe if you start at the top of a steep hill :D)

Yeah driving style is king, you can bet they accelerate at a very slow rate during those tests.

I used to have a TVR Tuscan, 4.0ltr and that would do 35mpg if you didn't hoof it around, no weight though and you'll get 3-4mpg on track :o :o :o

You made no mention of having to do an extra 10 hours a week for this £10k. In that case, it's not really a payrise, more a change of job role.

Correct me if I am wrong, but never once did I say I turned down 10k. 10k it was an example but if you had paid attention you would of realised this. Stop clutching at straws, my point is completely and utterly valid and the sensible option if you are smart with your money. I was and still am, my only vice is cars (and gold but im rubbish at that so I'll stick to driving)

Also, I'm fairly sure I know what my job roles have been as and when they changed unless you somehow know different.


Now, you can come back and make another snide comment just to make sure you get the last word in, pathetic.
Yeah of course, with my driving style I usualy take 50% the figures, so for me to get 25mpg on a 3ltr engine - YES ! thats brilliant.

By the way, reading through the comments and I must say I agree 100% with most of your views. Not going to drudge it all up, but I have been in very similar positions as you.

Its a BMW 6 series but the 4 door version, still looks coupe-esque- you get 12k dealer contribution on the M sport and 0% finance, 4 seats and the stats are brilliant- 0-60 5.2 secs, and supposedly 50mpg - this is for the 640d.

Yeah they said my X5 would do 40mpg, I even queried it and was assured it would do 40mpg on an extra urban cycle. In reality it does less than 26mpg on cruise control at 74mph (on the speedo which is 70 on the gps) over a single 500 mile trip.

In BMWs defence, their testing is correct and would no doubt produce 40mpg as the tests are done in very controlled conditions and not on the public roads.

If you drive it everywhere at 42mph, it will do over 30mpg but I have never seen their quoted figures (maybe if you start at the top of a steep hill :D)

Bought a 98 ML320 privately about 6 years ago (in 2006). It had done 60k miles and had just received a routine Merc service costing an eye-watering £1k.

13mpg (alledgedly 'normal' for this car according to the dealer). Already blistering with rust when I bought it (poorer than a 70's Fiat).

Within weeks it developed a serious fault in so much as both front brakes gradually apply themselves at random.

No clear diagnosis and given the price of parts has stood rotting on my driveway for 6 years.

Posh Badge, utterly diabolical car.

Wife's had a Toyota Rav for 17 years which despite random self-servicing has had ONE £20 failure in all that time.

Shame on you Mercedes. Wouldn't touch another one with 10 barge poles tied together!

Sorry to go off topic but had to get that one off my chest.

Good price for 'dealer servicing' of utterly pants cars, so heated for that.

I drive a Lexus now .... goodbye Mercedes.

I have always been a huge BMW 5 series touring fan I love the BMW 3l diesel its a corker but there is no denying since moving to the Merc E class Estate it betters The BMW in all areas bar handling.
The 3l V6 diesel in the Merc returns a consistent 40 mpg and feels like it has much more torque than the BMW 3l diesel, I could never get 40mpg from the BMW either, so the earlier comment saying Merc engines are way behind BMW are talking through their Hat!
Oh the 7sp Auto Box on the Merc is the best I have ever driven too, better than any BMW or Audi

Your just suffering from mercedes driver self delusion, its easy to sucumb too as that silver star is very shiny!
The facts don't support your case though. If you are going to drop 40k for example on a diesel exec here is how they stack up.

Merc 350cdi (3litre v6)
BHP 228
Torque 398
0-62 6.2
MPG 47.1
Co2 159

BMW 535d

BHP 295
Torque 443
0-62 5.7
MPG 52.3
Co2 142

In summary, the merc is less powerful, has less torque, is slower, is less effiecent and produces more co2. The mercedes is technologcially inferior in just about every element of its design and the facts support this. This does not prevent you from loving the one you own and on the plus side they are very comfortable.

With respect to your 7 speed auto box - its something merc should be able to do well since they almost entirely lack the imagination or engineering talent to produce sporty manual cars: unfortunatly for merc both Audi and BMW having been fitting a vastly superior 8 speed ZF transmission for sometime (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZF_8HP_transmission), the same unit found in the Rolls Royce ghost and phantom. Again, Mercedes are well behind. This topic is all over the motoring press, MB have been asleep at the wheel for a decade and are now paying for it.

Check out the Whatcar reviews if you dont belive me - most MB cars struggle to even make 4stars, the absolutely minimum for this class.

Alex Crow has a good reputation on the MB forums...think I'll be getting my service through him.

It is a good deal if you don't have £16k sat in a bank


Should you really be spending £16k on a car then?

Havn't voted because I have no idea if this is a good deal, but it seems like a lot of money to me.
What Car magazine target price is £14,137 so this doesn't look like a deal to me. http://www.whatcar.com/new-car-deals/mercedes--benz/a--class-mpv

I have been there twice this year and it is always free to get in. Additional costs are the driving experiences and the flight museum.
Went last year, daughter managed to get autograph from Lewis Hamilton, she did some driving too at the under 16 driving school and we all did the off roading, was a good day out but yes was quite expensive. Quite a unique family day out though

That was the Powered by Mercedes event November last year, not the same.
Hopefully there will be another one this year, will post it if there is.
So are no tickets needed? Just show up on the day?

You wont see them this time as there's a Grand Prix on that date.
I cant see what's extra to any other weekend atm -there doesnt seem to be enough detail on the website yet for those dates . It's usually free every day of the week & the AMG's race around the track every weekend & in the school hols. There's normally a big screen on Grand Prix days.

Now, I see where these people that make an affair when someone scratches their bumper come from.

Well, bumper is to bump - as the name says. However, if you have this kind of arrangement a chip can spoil all the joy of using a car.
Complete and utter waste of money.
Thanks Jonnye! Got mine through merc corporate sales so will enquire about this. Might save me some pennies at the end of the lease :)
Here we go

http://www.bmw.co.uk/images/bmwuk/finance/BVRLA_FWandT_Guide.pdf

ok this is branded as BMW but it is the BVRLA guide if you look on page 12 it states dents up to 10mm in size are ok as long as there is no more than 2 per panel and the paint is not broken
if you search for the BVRLA fair wear and tear guide (British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association is the trade body for companies engaged in the leasing and rental of cars and commercial vehicles) this will give details of what damage is acceptable and whats not, most rental and leasing companies are members and agree to follow their guidelines. failing that if you contact your lease company they should provide a copy for you.

If you are about to take a PCP or any form of lease ask the provider for a copy of the fair wear and tear guide it will be the BVRLA one their own version based on the guidelines.

eh why not, mb are in the SERVICE industry are they not? you must work for mb
did you not read my post...clearly not...my point is it is the drivers responsibility (which i stated), however the mb dealer in question should bear some responsibility given the fact that its been serviced there from day 1!
Thats poor service - peugeot provide this service, they send reminders a month, and week before

I am sorry to disagree with you. i drive a mb and agree that their service prices are very inflated but I dont think it is their responsibility to remind you of your MOT date..you would not expect them to remind of your road tax renewal date..would you?
My experience with this scenario, dating back many years with BMW, was that the "official" brand garage mechanics were ordered to find enough work from each & every BMW to warrant their time & earn money from the cars booked in, luckily my mate & his team (or the majority) used to stick their heels in as much as possible in order to defy this...
The BMW garage near to me (that was) recently gave up it's BMW dealership after it was told it would need a ONE MILLION pound makeover in order to keep the BMW marque on it's forecourts.. they told BMW to go to hell,.. so imagine a portion of this on your MOT every time you go the official route.
Incidentally my colloqial village garage is utilised by various garages of higher "marques" to sort out the problems their own mechs couldn't suss.
it's an AGRICULTERAL based garage (ie tractors combines etc) ...I ve met their mechanics at the premo brand garages picking up vehicles to sort out ...
make of that what you will.
Needless to say I go to my local garage with our Mercedes as they offer good service which ultimately makes them trustworthy & reliable as they only do work needed & advise accordingly..

I find it quite amusing when the owner drives a vehicle for a year without an MOT certificate and then blames Mercedes for "not reminding" him/her at a previous service that the MOT was due...........Cannot understand the phrase"thats what you pay extra for" and then quible about all the extras you paid.....I'm bemused.
