Audi A4 Saloon 1.4T FSI Sport 4dr Lease £1300 down and £142 a month INC VAT @ vehiclesforbusiness

Found 22nd Jan 2016
Been having issues with my mondeo and though it might be time for a new car.

Was going to spend £1500 on a cheap runabout, but this looks a great deal (and yes not £1500 - but also no expenses in future)

2 yr deal, less than £1k down on some options.

Car has nav as standard too!

EDIT: £360 admin charge to be paid to broker on receipt of car.

Ignoring the deal for a minute, it does seem an expensive option to a £1500 run-a-bout. Would you really expect £140+ of running costs pm?

Well I guess that depends on fuel and any work/services that it needs that could easily add up to that a month if you average it, depending on the car
Great deal and the cheapest around at the moment. But there have been lots of recent deals similar to this from other leasing companies that are now being pulled as the 'offer allocation' is dwindling. If you are interested in this I wouldn't hang around too long making a decision.

Fuel/Insurance - can't really include that in the £140. After all the brand new lease car also needs both of those on top of it's £142 pm.

Other than the above, I would be very surprised/disappointed if most £1500 cars cost almost £1700 in additional costs for a year, but I'm sure there are some.
I was only making the point in the context of the OP's comment.

​The 142 you're paying a month for this does not include fuel so this is clearly more expensive.
Also you don't actually own the car, so there's that.
Also, if you buy clever for 1500 you can definitely get something that does not require an average of 140 a month worth of work on it.
Also, have you been able to tell I'm strongly against car leases.
Ive never leased a car before, so this is new to me, but i figure if i went and spent £20k on a car, what would i expect to get back after 2 yrs - £15k perhaps?

i currently pay £250 a yr road tax (or similar) plus MOT's at £30 - that stops, so take £600 off the total rental cost say.

On top of this my current mondeo (which i do love!) gets about 25mpg round town, this should be a whole heap better (maybe 40mpg) - that works out roughly £900 a yr in fuel, so £1800 over the 2 yrs.

That represents £2400 saving over my current car, without including any costs that an aging car will potentially need. So all in its costing me £1k a yr (very rough figures here) to have a brand new car.

Total is 4718 which is more like 196 per month. Doesnt seem like the great deal you are quoting at the start
If someone wants a used car, they should buy a used car.

However if someone wants to a new car, leasing can often be the most cost efficient method. As lease deals go this looks very good, assuming an Audi A4 is your kind of thing.

Indeed ... need something more practical as have a boxster as a runabout.
£360 processing fee too.

So more like £203.78 pm. Not such a good deal as first seems....

Similar to my situation, an Elise for the weekends, leasing an Octavia VRS estate for the other half and the dog, and leasing a Scirocco R for commuting. The Scirocco wouldn't be my first choice, but it was a good deal and it's nice enough.
203 per month( 32*141)+360/24=203

I saw that scirocco deal ... was tempted by it but large upfront put me off, and i also need something practical i realised!

My throwaway car cost me £1k ... so its not a whole heap more than that per yr when you add in the road tax saving and petrol savings.

Represents a bigger saving than that, I would be surprised if you got back £15 after two years in a £20k car - based on average mileage ...

Ah yes, the current deal on CVL has large upfront, I got it a few months ago when it was smaller upfront payments 6+23 @ £222, similar overall cost but I prefer smaller upfront payments after my M135i lease car was written off 5 months through its lease in 2014.
Agreed, im doing £980 upfront and then £150(ish) a month - same overall, but feels better laying out less up front time value of money wise prob a saving there too!

I added heat. I will never buy a car again myself while you can get good lease deals that are posted here. It's difficult for people ( as it was for me) to get there head around leasing even when a balance sheet is screaming logic to you!
Very much so... i get the whole 'but you dont own it' argument, then that person goes to the bank to borrow the money to buy a car so they can 'own' it!

New cars depreciate hugely, leasing means you get to have a new car without that risk and a budget from the outset.

I like cars, and have wasted £££'s on them - this is almost self policing, with a 2 yr least im stuck with the car!
I wonder what happened after 2 years? Do you need to give it back in a really good conditions? Will dealer actually be very picky about the conditions? Like you cannot have any dirts in interior or dents/scratches on the car body?

Curious about that myself.. will ask those questions before i buy anything, though im am pretty careful with my cars, but can never tell what others are like
Stonker of a deal, if it was the avant I'd be all over it
Avant is £40 more a month as car is abut £1300 more initially
How about servicing, some of these deals insist you get a dealer service once every 12 months, so you'd need to factor that into the cost.

The fair wear & tear guide from audi is available here.

Very good deal for the car, equivalents from BMW and Mercedes will be closer to £300pm, it won't last.

There is only one service during this 2 year lease and it'll be ~£240 (ask to confirm) so if you are interested in this deal, I'd asked for a maintained lease, usually for an extra £10 this includes servicing and tyres including [accidental] punctures.

If you buy a brand new car you'll need to factor this in for the warranty anyway

Is this a typo on annual mileage at 10k?
What about tyres when you give it back? Do they just have to have the legal tread or do we need to give a new set back?

The BVRLA fair wear and tear policy is also worth looking at as most reputable leasing companies are members. This also states tyres to be road legal, as mentioned.

On a 6+23 deal with £240 admin fee the totat True Cost is £213/month
Question: Is it better to put the higher deposit down and pay less/month?
6+23 or 9+23
Just thinking ...if I sold my car for £2500 should I do the lower deposit or the higher one which saves you a few pounds over the lease.
Any thoughts?

Lower deposit and higher monthly payments is the way to go. If the car was to be stolen or written off in for example the first month your first month could have cost you say £1500. Gap insurance only covers the difference between what the insurance company pays and what the manufacturer wants back for the car. Your deposit is gone.

Having said that I hear some gap insurance policies will now cover the initial deposit - ala I think are the first to offer this.

Been covered quite a bit on the golf r forums as some people have found out to their cost.

Hi DollyBoy, Can I ask why is the lower upfront payment preferred? Is a 6+23 better than 9+23? thanks
