Not sure you understand the principle of depreciation.
Erm, I do. I do very clearly. If an asset depreciates, lease it. If it appreciates, own it.
Why would I want to buy a dearer Daihatsu (if such things exist given they havn't sold a car in Europe for almost four years) for it to depreciate at a steeper rate?
Better to get a lease where the total value of the lease is less than the depreciation of the car should you have bought it.
I meant to get a Dacia, not a Daihatsu

Yes Lease: Ford Fiesta 1.0L 140 ST Line £177.84 pm, £177.84 upfront + £300 processing fee 36 months personal lease from yes lease. Total deal = £6,702.00

20
thought this was a good deal. Also speaking with an adviser, the £300 processing fee can also be spread over the 36 months so taking you monthly payments up to around £185. The only up front payment

Its the st 'LINE' not the ST - which is just what they've renamed the zetec s

They dont need it to go any faster than 9s as its target is people who want the sportier styling on a pretty much bog standard fiesta, plus it would ruin sales on the ST's if it did

I have seen graphs of people getting up to 200bhp out of their 1L ecoboost engines though, but apparently they didnt last very long...
Lets just agree that 9s is **** slow
bbfb123
For a car as small as a fiesta with 140 bhp 9 seconds is slow. My focus ecoboost which weighs 2 tonnes does 0-60 in only 8.3 seconds and its 150 bhp. Plus the fiesta is half a tonne lighter.

That doesn't add up imo.


​Depends on gearing as well, not just power to weight.

2 tonnes with five adults in the cabin and five folded up in the boot maybe. The Ford Focus has weighed about 1200kg for twenty years!

​Don't blame you for being confused, the 8.3 seconds quoted isn't fully laden.

I asked for a quote on 10k allowance and got £206.27 per month. Not bad. I then asked whether any other engines were similarly priced, and was told only the T5 was "miss priced". Strange.

Was also told that it was mis-priced and that the deal ends today. Not sure if that was just pressure to sign up or if true.

Cracking deal. Lovely looking cars these. I would like to see the spec of the car but there are not many Volvo garages about. And I'd like a drive. The cabin looks like a real nice place to be.

Looking for a lease deal for around £200 a month - quite flexible on the car, as long as it's not a 2 seater. Need to get the little ones car seat in. Anyone seen anything else decent?

I do 4K per annum and I try and avoid driving as much as possible.
Can't imagine people buying this would do less than 6K a year.
TBH I never really understand why people pay quite so much to hire a car when you can almost always buy and own a car for more or less the same price.
I now understand why there are so many new cars on the road. Used to think they were mainly reps but it's balanced out with people keeping up with the Jones's and just have to have a new (hired) car LOL

What's the matter with you? I've not been lookign at HUKD too closely but you turn up in every single contract hire motoring deal and make the same comments.

It's not for you, we get it. You'd rather pootle about in your Vauxhall Viva, bolt things back on as they fall off, and save yourself a few quid. That's your perogative, good for you.

Why the persistence? You're a bitter used car dealer with a forecourt full of old bangers, aren't you? Its the only plausible explanation.

But £30k (the drivethedeal price for the same spec new car) on a 2 year loan costs £32k (Sainsbury's @ 6.7%, the rate for 30k) and has repayments of £1350ish a month?

Obviously, the longer you own said car, the more cost effective it becomes, even if you keep it ten years and it's worth a grand at the end of it, it's still deprecated at around £60 a week!

After 2 years you'll struggle to get £25k+ back out of a second hand "thirsty" Scirocco?

Never been brought up to rent anything, have always saved for it, which is great, but not necessarily the best option for a depreciating "asset"?

Just saying like ;)

If you take that Sainsburys loan out, you will have fully paid off the car at 2 years old vs having paid off 2 years worth of interest + depreciation if you PCP -an unfair comparison.

If you want THIS car then you will lose less on this lease than depreciation on a retail car bought cash with a good level of discount (not the case for other cars). You'd be looking at about £20k trade-in or £21-22k private sale if you can stand the tyre kickers. As for "thirsty" - mpg is dependent on how you drive it, the length of your commute, how congested it is etc. But for context, I used to have a 170TDI Scirocco, and a 174TDI Golf GTD, and for me it was good for about 46mpg on an 8 mile commute, 52mpg on a 20 mile drive, and 59mpg sitting at 80 on the motorway on a long journey in the Summer. These diesels are a lot more frugal when they're warm than when they're cold - hence poor for short journeys from a mpg view. I used to love my 2009 140TDI and 2011 170TDI Sciroccos, but the car is a bit long in the tooth and desperate for an update on tech and chassis (the MQB chassis is a huge step up in ride and handling).

Am I reading this right ? Pay over £6200 for two years driving and the car is not yours at the end ?
Yes.
Or, buy a new car outright on a loan because you can't afford to have the car in the first place, signup to interest (which is the worst creation of mankind ever) and pay more for the car than it was ever worth in the first place. But at least you have a smile on your face...you have something you really shouldn't.
Of course, if you have the cash, you can buy a car outright and not sign up to interest. But try selling it after two years and if you've lost LESS than £6261.84 in depreciation you're a clever man.
Or buy a second hand banger.
So many choices!

What do you mean 'you said; ? It's 2.7m isn't it yes or no? (along with the Range Rover) My point was that people moaning about £500 VED, which wasn't bad given its almost got the same wheelbase as a 9 seater mini bus, yet I never see more than 3 people in these. Usually a Mum and the token child. Obscene.


Then its a moot point you were trying to make - it would be as relevant saying a Ford Mondeo has the same wheelbase as a van (which it does) - completely irrelevant.

Chip on my shoulder? I stopped caring about English roads years ago. Worst in Europe and horrendous congestion thanks to the ghetto housing culture.
In fact I believe it's the ghetto housing culture (known as housing estates) cheap tacky samey looking houses, that fuels Britain's strong desire for luxury cars and its unique badge snobbery.


Hows driving a Volvo being a badge snob??

Vauxhall..........why would you?
Cos it's better than a Leon and people won't think you're a chav?
But to honest though I prefer uneducated fools like yourself assuming vauxhalls are rubbish, it makes for more bargains for us that know better.
Well this uneducated fool was a fleet purchase manager for a few years. The underpowered, old tech Vauxhalls and their poor reliability / build quality led to them being removed from the list of approved vehicles, despite massive discounts. It's only in the last 2-3 years they've removed bright red led displays for their poor audio systems for heavens sake.
But hey, keep loving that old tech eh !
I'm just dying to know what car do you drive?
A German one. Assembled in the U.K.
It was independent rear suspension (unlike the solid beam axle this cattle truck has) but is front wheel drive. It has a modern three cylinder petrol engine that won engine of the year. And it drives fantastic.
I wasn't asking you but since you were rude enough to answer.
The mini to which you refer is well over a second slower to 60, heavier, less equipped and more expensive than this "cattle truck" as you so describe.
In fact What Car also rates the Astra as better car....
lololololololololololololol
Whatcar indeed! Probably a great publication if you don't like cars at all and like being told what to drive by people receiving kick backs and special trips away from the motor industry.
So you're suggesting What Car is corrupt and your knowledge is superior? What about Auto express, Autocar and Carbuyer who also rate the Astra higher than your Mini? Are they also corrupted?
No. But you're still wrong.
Just because.
Love it! "Just because" argument, ever consider a career in politics?
You still don't get it. This car is the equivalent of a plain mild cheddar cheese sandwich on cheap white bread. I had one near this spec as a hire car a while back. The only thing that stood out was how bland it was.
Life is too short for bland cars. They're too expensive to waste the money on something that will bore you to death. And is not about speed, it's about how it feels, you cannot measure that in a review.
You just can't accept that this new version of the astra is a really good car, in fact better than your own car. You have no basis whatsoever for your arguments.
Maybe, just maybe you had tried the previous version of astra which was distinctly average. The new model however is a huge improvement and is being praised as such by the motoring press....
Any way bored now, off for a cheese sandwich.

I just didn't think there was much out there offering better performance (5.7 0-60, 280ps), looks (subjective I know), and quality (please feel free to comment anecdotes about how a relative of yours had a VW that broke down or jokes emissions in order disprove this point) at this price, hence why I shared the deal- judging by all the cold it's not as good as I first thought...
Yea its a poor deal mate. There was a deal a few months ago on a scirocco for £106pm with a 2k deposit 24mths with 8k miles. Compared to that this is just a joke. I miss the days that members posted real deals. HUKD has become too commercialised and every tom, dick and Harry post whatever they think is a deal. So frustrating trawling through all this filth.

Yeh just had a look and think I can see the deal you're talking about (http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/insane-brand-new-scirocco-2-0tsi-gt-man-lease-106-69-per-month-2400-deposit-other-2475346)

While a good deal (£106pm, £2.4k deposit, 5k miles) that's a completely different car as it has 100ps less than the R and the OTR price is about £5k less.

If you don't care about performance as much that's a great deal, but this deal was a good option for someone looking for a performance car.

Thanks,

Was it the R though? With a OTR price starting at £32k~? Highly doubt it
If you found a lease for that for just over £100 you'd be laughing

I just didn't think there was much out there offering better performance (5.7 0-60, 280ps), looks (subjective I know), and quality (please feel free to comment anecdotes about how a relative of yours had a VW that broke down or jokes emissions in order disprove this point) at this price, hence why I shared the deal- judging by all the cold it's not as good as I first thought...


Yea its a poor deal mate. There was a deal a few months ago on a scirocco for £106pm with a 2k deposit 24mths with 8k miles. Compared to that this is just a joke. I miss the days that members posted real deals. HUKD has become too commercialised and every tom, dick and Harry post whatever they think is a deal. So frustrating trawling through all this filth.

£360 'admin' fee.
Jog on mon frere.

Why look at the admin fee in isolation? This deal works out at £6227.20 over the term.

The deal linked below works out at £6489.26 over the term. It has no admin fee so perhaps you'd prefer that option even though it'll cost you £262.06 extra?

Looks like a jag.
I had a tipo as first car. It fell apart, exhaust, engine mounts, clutch, gear selectors, fuse box set on fire. Loved it, so crap it made every journey exciting as you didnt know if you'd make it home. Like a top gear challenge of old!
it goes back in 2 months I've had it 22months great car :(

FYI - the 10k works out cheaper. Lower upfront offset by the higher monthly fee.

The deal from AutoTrader was cheaper but has been taken off the market :/ I would take it at £220/month (average) for the 8k but not any more.

I was looking at this and a quick Google took me to What Car leasing. This had a link to Stoneacre Leasing. I just signed up for 1 x £1,287.96 + 35 x 214.66, including metallic paint. Adding metallic to the OP deal here would give a total cost of £10,558. My total cost is £8,801. This is £1,756 cheaper. Do I get a medal or anything?
Sounds good - is that personal inc. VAT? And what mileage pa?

6+35 (10k pa) on their website says £2439 down and £271 pm - did you ring to get a bespoke deal?



This is personal including VAT. 8k miles a year which is enough for me. It's just as listed on the What Car lease comparison site.
This one is mine from fleet prices. It is with tft active display 350 pounds and metallic paint which according to them took 5 pounds of the final monthly payment. Also automatic gearbox.

Not sure I ordered mine from local Skoda dealer 3 months ago, got delivered last week and that was £500 deposit and pay the rest on delivery..Not used Simpsons personally but others on here have and seem happy with service as do the various Skoda forums
May I ask what model you got? Was it a Monte Carlo petrol DSG?

Cheers, that's what I ordered over 5 months ago and it's finally just been build. However Fleetprices are saying another 4 weeks before they get it. Just seems like delay after delay with this seller.
Yes I think alot of these online agents get pushed back of the queue but get better pricing for their customers, would not surprise me if other later orders leap frog when coming directly from Skoda main dealers, it's a trade off I guess.

I agree, I think is what has most likely happened. My original order was given to a buyer which is a lot more profitable for the dealer. In this case Styner Group, which are certainly on my black list for the next time I buy a car and I certainly won't recommend them to anyone.

Correction... It's not a deposit but the "initial fee".

Business contract hire
£70.84 + VAT monthly rental
£2000.00 + VAT initial rental

Contract term 24 months

Or for personal...

Price has gone up now - but yes if you prefer to keep the car for at least 4 years then you are better off purchasing outright.

Also there are good deals on the updated Leon. This one is the best in the range and not much more than the Ibiza (with the current price increase from the original deal posted).

Do any of these scirocco leases come with android auto?
Car-Net is an optional extra. I went for it personally.
yeah its a must have now after using it for a year (with android)....wife has an iphone and even she was thinking of switching phones just to use Android Auto. Being able to read and reply to whatsapp messages is just the icing on the cake of everything else it can do.

The apple carplay is in such a sorry state...mostly to do with the fact you can only use apple apps. The experience between the two is just night and day.

So it might be cheaper to buy it new and sell it in 2 years. Remind us what the finance costs on a loan of £28K? If you can get a loan that is. Surely cheaper to buy a £150 car and save even more.
The reason personal leasing is rising is because folk can't/don't want to get a £28k loan.

Residuals won't hold once the new car is out.

When you stated "they didn't over-estimate - they got caught out."

That's not me disagreeing. Had they not got caught out, they would have continued on their trend.

[quote=Bertz99]Why wouldn't it be?

For the simple reason that the consumer in the UK drives the market. Given that you are the expert, are the top 10 cars sold in the UK, the same top 10 sold in say France or Germany or anywhere else?

Bertz99
Don't see what relevance your personal relationship with Michael Goves has in regard to car manufacturers business modelling within the UK. Perhaps thats one for the Daily Mirror rather than confessing here!

I don't have a "personal relationship" with Michael Gove. It was reference to "Britain has had enough of experts".

Maintenance costs of what exactly? Cars themselves? If so, one can very easily argue that is definitely not true of diesel cars.
Costs involved in storing cars in Jersey, isle of Wight, Belguim fields with security. While this ties up fianance there is ongoing the payment for the lots, security and the higher warranty cost from having them stood that ensues.

continue on the tangent solely to defend you not being wrong

And you are not?

To have been correct another or would have been required more and I would have proposed "anything else I can't think of as some *** may point I'm making it up and haven't really thought this through" :)

It would be nice if this could be a coherent sentence. All three statements are true. Please point out what does not happen from what I wrote.

Bertz99
Again your logic is failing you, these statements are not mutually exclusive to one another. You can have they overestimated market demand (for varying reasons)

For the simple reason they were growing and wanted to sell over 10M units a year.

Bertz99
and in this example they got caught out, both are factually correct.

When did I disagree with that statement?

Bertz99
My statement is specifically more generic as manufacturers commonly over estimate (and not necessarily get caught out) and utilise their well understood business models to refinance freeing up their capital whilst reducing costs and keeping the premium value.

Is that truly applicable in a push economy like the UK?

Bertz99
The exact reason, in my specific example, is still irrelevant in why manufacturers use this standard business model and the initial point I keep sticking to

You are entitled to your opinion.

Bertz99
In my opinion, that I know more than you do in how car manufacturers business model, financing and franchising works within the UK having had insights of Hyundai, Izuzu, Kia, Subaru introduction into the UK via International motors, how they appointed and franchised their dealers (common model in UK) and the basic modelling of how the financing works that joins it all up

Congratulations - I'll get Michael Gove on the line...

Bertz99
Facts....ongoing maintenance costs have significantly reduced

Maintenance costs of what exactly? Cars themselves? If so, one can very easily argue that is definitely not true of diesel cars.

Seeing you have little more to do with you time and want something more productive I would suggest doing a basic economic course that now covers this.

Facts - You can look up on the manufacturers yearly published reports which details how inventory stock has dropped, ongoing maintenance costs have significantly reduced and refinancing loans have increased compared to the 90's (where Jersey, Isle of White and Belgium stored over produced cars and before leasing came). Further, in reports subsequent to leases introduction you can see there is a direct inverse correlation between predicted sales compared to actuals and refinancing loans. All of this is readily available in public domain and known. Seeing you have little more to do with you time and want something more productive I would suggest doing a basic economic course that now covers this.

Remind me...

Bertz99
Both what you proposed there is wrong

How convenient of you to ignore "and/or"

Bertz99
I bought it up as an example where the manufacturer had over estimated and due to headlines, which impacted sales, and therefore were strongly out on their estimates

They didn't over-estimate - they got caught out. That was their business-model and would continue to be so hadn't they got caught out. And as I mentioned before, If VAG is guilty then every other manufacturer with approximately the same size engines, power outputs and official emissions must be guilty of something similar. One engine simply cannot churn out 40 times as much NOx as another engine the same size.

Bertz99
I am not your son and just to reiterate it is you that focused on a single example as a "single event" rather than seeing the manufacturers business model clearly being demonstrated.

No - you have demonstrated an opinion that you deem to be factually superior and over-ruling, despite myself demonstrating facts (not an opinion) that are also correct.

Not getting into a silly argument with u, only referencing on a more detail breakdown cost as many people don't understand how leasing works - what's included and what not etc.

Btw Merry festive season to u ;-)

The nonsense was on the overall total monthly fee figure.....like someone said can call it whatever fee they like, its still add to the overall monthly cost to the consumer.

Wrong, you replied with "absolute nonsense" whilst quoting my post stating that the processing fee is nothing to do with the underwriter there was no mention of the total cost in that post. Explain how this is "absolute nonsense".

It would also help to say insurance and yearly servicing cost not included, when its maybe apparent to u, but many people don't know how it works and they get asked a lot.

Do you include the cost of your phone/tablet/laptop/sofa/house to the monthly cost also, as without these it could be tricky to process the deal and some of the aforementioned users might be confused about this.

I really think they should ban 'deals' thathe are under £10 on this site. Waste of screen space

nearly £3k to drive this for 2 years?! i wouldn't even if someone paid me to. Death trap with that 1.0 and safety compromise all over the place, no space for anything.

Death trap with a 1.0 engine, what difference does the engine size? it probably gets as many, if not more, safety stars as any other 4/5 seat car and it will have all the latest safety tech, so saying it is a death trap w/o any evidence to back that up is just talking nonsense. Plus being small and easy to park etc is clearly part of the attraction, if you want more space then get the Forfour or C1 etc nobody is saying this car is right for everybody.

Cute if you want one, but in what way is that a coupe? Yes it has two doors, but so does my house, I wouldn't call that a coupe. Before giving heat I would have to find out how much these are new and how much used after a year or two.
Any car with 2 doors and fixed roof usually defines a coupe, saying that though BMW in their infinite wisdom have named one of their 4 series (has 4 doors) Gran Coupe!

You are completely missing the point. It's not a deal as there are plenty of other places that does it for the same or slightly less in fact.

Looked in to these last year and bought a Honda Civic Tourer :-)
But this is lease deal, so get to give it back after 4 years.
As I said in the first post £899 up front initially, then £149.99 a month for the next 4 years. It averages out to about £165 a month, and there are no admin fees.
Standard net price per month for this car by most of the leasers, so not much of a deal...

For those critics about safety. I suggest you actually look into the technology that's gone into these. They are designed from the ground up to be safer than an average much larger car.

They bounce off brick walls depending on the angle. If rammed from the back, the engine drops into the ground and forces the energy into the ground.

Take a look. These are much safer than your average corsa etc.
Certain cars attract certain people. My opinion may be tainted having been hit by one of these cars whose owner treats it like a bumper car and thinks it ok to park in a space not big enough for a smart car and hit neigbouring cars. I always give them a wide berth in traffic , as their owners appear to drive like idiots too .
Can anyone find a deal on an auto? Only need 6k milage but don't mind more. The end of last quarter they were knocking about for £80 a month average over the term on a 3+23 deal

Good price but probably require expensive main dealer servicing with no maintenance included will may add around £60+ a month to that price
£60 a month is excessive. For comparison, a typical BMW's first service is after 20k miles and that's an oil change. Not sure about Audi but certainly won't be 10 times that.
I was talking about an average over 3 years when you start including major services ! Last time I had a major service on an Audi it cost over £400
£400 / 36 =~£11pm for 36months.
And obviously with a 2 year lease, there is no need for a major service.
Over 3 years with servicing & other parts requiring replacement (excl consumables) my Audi cost over £900 a year on average....having covered 80k miles (true that included a new clutch but not a warranty repair)
Brake pads alone are £400 a set, a clutch around £800....services at 19k min £150 major £319 (plus non service parts)
Interesting... new car or used? Secondly, 80k miles over 3 years, not 50k. Thirdly, £900 per year for maintaining a new car? I know from experience it doesn't cost that much to run a brand new car. It used to cost that much to maintain my previous (10+ year old E-Class).


It was new......it had 2 full sets of pads in that time, a new clutch at 56k, a new wheel bearing at 60k & was serviced every 15k miles (mixed rather than all motorway).....not saying it will cost this much..but on a 3 year 25k lease that's 75k over the lease...I may have been unlucky but these days I'd only go for a fully maintained lease even if it cost £40 a month more.......not that I need to these days !!


​something wrong with the car or driver. I've had a few cars and no car has had to have a clutch replaced until at least 100000 miles. had my Peugeot for 14 years and I had the clutch changed for the first time 2 years ago at 108000. if my audi lasts only 58k I will complain.. either they badly designed, too stressed on you need some right foot treatment lol

Fair enough, but an old issue that affected N47 engines manufactured between 2007 and 2011.
An old issue that has knocked BMW down a peg or two on the myth of reliability of German cars. BMW are not the only manufacturing imposing/suggesting longlife service plans. VAG do it group-wide too, so, as per the OPs requirements, not having a major service at all in 50k miles would be plain stupid.
Just checked and new BMW oil change is every 10k miles.

In that basis with main dealer costs you could expect around £500 in servicing costs each year covering 25k a year

This isn't such a bad deal but you'd need to know the excess ppm before going for it, as 5000miles is pretty low - more than likely to overshoot it! Sometimes its cheaper to go with low mileage and pay the excess as opposed to the higher mileage (i.e. 5000 miles at 10ppm (inc VAT) is £500 over 12 months, as opposed to £600 over 12 months when choosing 10k miles (at £50/month more)).

Additionally, you may want to order a new car/lease now, and collect before April 2017 as the new VED's will mean lease prices will go up for cars over £40k. I estimate the equivalent lease in 6 months time will be roughly £30-40/month more.


So the leasing companies normally pay for the VED so the increase they'll pass on to the consumers?

Just to confirm this is now sold out - just spoke to a dealer on the phone from select car leasing. Great deal though.

Put £500 to one side and hope that will cover any damage.
I wouldn't take that advice. Multiple leaser here and I've never had a charge over the £35 for a kerbed wheel which was actually cheaper than getting it repaired myself. Look after the car and you don't have to worry about return charges. Fair wear and tear is exactly that.
Hopefully you wouldn't have to pay anything, either getting it done yourself or them doing it. Just think it's a good idea to have access to some money, as you say, look after it, but there is always some in considerate so and so out there...

I have owned 12 since the 1980's onwards until my final purchase in 2012. Never again. Build quality shocking. I could write a book about FIAT (FIX IT AGAIN TONY, FIX IT AGAIN TOMORROW). Absolute ****.
I can list them all if you like.
Surprised as. We have had nine fiats and are currently on our 6th ALFA and the only real problem has been the dealers who are useless. But fortunately there are some good ALFA indys out there.
Really pleased that you have had good fortune. I forgot to mention the dealer network, absolutely laughable. One of my Fiat purchases lasted all of two days. The dealer made such a **** up, the car had to be returned or legal action would have followed. Honestly, I take no great pleasure in slagging off Fiat as they design lovely cars, unfortunately building them is a problem, for me anyway. My favourite two cars were both Fiats. The 500, the last Fiat we bought was a design icon, but almost killed my wife. My previous Fiat to that was a Grande Punto Multijet Sporting. 1.9 diesel that went like stink, and great fuel economy. Alas, Fiat no more as my wife has threatened to have me sectioned as insane if I buy another one!

but its a fiat....
what is wrong with it


being a fiat? (Waits for people still stuck in the 70,s and 80,s)
​wasn't it fiat 500's that wouldn't go uphill and wouldn't do anything about it untill watchdog covered the story
Yes but it was a certain engine and it was sorted with an ECU update.
Perhaps nobody should buy Vauxhalls because the Zafira and Corsa catch fire or Toyota because of brake problems, or BMW for wiring and ECU issues, or do I need to go on?
Well said Jim. Live in wet Swansea wales and Have had fiat and alfas all my life and never suffered from tin worm
