Is this getting cold votes because people don't like Focuses or because its a bad deal? Ford dealerships can't get anywhere near this price!
My wife must have been dreaming about this last night.

She woke me up screaming 'Focus, Focus, Focus' ........................ I think.
How do you get £8112? Think you've misunderstood the term 'initial rental'? That is basically what you pay for the 1st month, then you will have 47 lots of the monthly rental after that

3 months up front = £507
Plus 47 lots of £167 = £8356? does it not? for 6k miles a year doesn't seem that great.. Plus anyone only doing 6k miles a year has almost no need for a diesel as won't be doing any/many long runs worthy or required by a diesel

8k mileage comes in at £8850 for the 4 years, which is not too bad i guess

The site has put the total in automatically - i agree its wrong!! i also agree on the 6K but the 8k is also a good deal. They only charge 4.2p per mile excess mileage so there's no point getting too many miles upfront. Ford quote £210 a month with their maximum discount for the 8000 miles. Also the no need for a diesel comment is not relevant when you look at mpg the diesel version blows the petrol engine out of the water.

6k a year if you worked full time is about 26 miles a day(which is what i do), so 13 miles each way to work. but that's If you don't drive anywhere else at all. Try drive 13 miles with a cold diesel engine and get absolutely anywhere near the MPG stated and also not ruin the DPF by not allowing it to regen properly.. You won't (i know as i have a diesel and do that mileage, difference is mine goes on a moterway every other weekend which is when it does the regen), thus a small turbo engine like the 1.0 ecoboost would provide much better MPG in that scenario, whether you could get one in the same price range i don't know but if the DPF goes then that's a big bill you will have to pay..

You'll need to read the T&Cs for excess mileage, some lease companies can get funny if you do too many excess mileage as a way around paying more per month, some have a leeway of about 10%.. Not saying this company do but i've seen others who have.. If they did in this case it would be 600 miles a year extra you could do..

I think most people would be going for the 8000 miles (myself included).
8k for renting focus? You can buy bike for that and win tour de france.

Paying £8k for a car the costs £22k. After 4 years the car would be worth less than £14k so surely it makes it a good deal? Do people not understand the point in leasing? The whole idea is that you get to drive around a brand new car at a fraction of the cost.
I think the issue is more that you are wishing to lease for 48 months. Why would you do that when a Ford warranty only lasts 36 months?

You have also omitted the admin fee of £198 to your price(s).
