Mods edited it. My maths say £7800.

Still, people voting an S3 cold at £305 a month is somewhat baffling!

Yes the mods on here are complete idiots at times. £305 is good but isn't that for just 5k miles per year?

Even I can see this is a good deal and I wouldn't be seen in an Audi without a disguise!

Good price for the car, but I wouldn't be seen dead in one. They're the new BMW for people who think that BMWs have got a bit of a reputation.

nothing wong with it i had a old S3 2004 model loved it i love the quality of audi wouldnt go near a BMW !

Cracking car for the money. If I hadn't recently bought a new car I would have seriously considered this.

This should really not be cold. Almost as good as Gold R deals!

Some cost options on this are included in standard Golf R (e.g. parking sensors?) but still a very good deal.

looks like it. 310bhp and 7-speed gearbox. If I wasn't 9 months until my current car's lease ends, I'd go for this!

This has to be a miss price, anyone gone for it?

They've done similar offers on this before, just never quite this cheap. Defo not a misprice

Cheers, do they take the deposit now or when the car is in? (Just deciding what to do with my old car whether to sell privately or not)

It's just under £300 for 15k per annum... a tempting price, but not quite cheap enough to get me there

now as they have to order the car

good price. anyone know how far in advance you can request one? looking to swap cars March next year.

Did you go ahead with it?

Most thing that go wrong will be covered under warranty right? Just insurance to pay on top... and any services?

Thoughts on getting this or buying a second hand 2015 car outright with 10-15k miles on it?

On my lease, I didn't pay a bean until the car was much closer to delivery date - it depends on the lease firm.

You'll have to do the maths...the legwork is a bit fussy, but once you set up a spreadsheet, it's easy to maintain.

Your goal is to get down to a cost per mile - but with a used option, you'll have to make some assumptions to do a like-for-like comparison (i.e. own for two years and sell on).

My spreadsheet shows that buying nearly new-ish is often cheaper per mile in theory, but that depends on the re-sale happening at the rate you're hoping for. It could also cope with what method you use to finance the car (cash vs loan), as the latter is obviously more expensive, but the former ties up capital in a depreciating asset.

An example I recently did on a £15k almost new car versus a new lease, showed a difference of 1ppm (that is, 30ppm vs 29ppm). Over 12k miles a year, for two years, it's less than £250 for the privilege of a new car versus used.

Your mileage may vary (pun intended!) and may also use different assumptions when comparing to a lease. Note as well, that lower mileage leases with excess mileage on top, usually results in a net lower cost per mile, which is why a lot of these deals are snapped up.

Happy to share calcs for anyone interested.

Thanks for the detailed response.

To get the same spec as the used car I would be buying it pushes the cost up quickly. I think I'd struggle to see £8k depreciation+costs over 2 years. As nice as a new car sounds, the facelift has so few changes there's not really any gain.

I have spoken with them with the intention of going for this, there is nothing to pay other than the processing fee, having it maintained is £12 extra a month so that's a no brainer, Cant believe this didn't go sky high in heat

The trick is putting a financial value on non-financial measures.

Used vs new is always a bit biased, as it isn't like for like. Used will have seen depreciation in advance, but carries the risk of increased wear and tear for example.

I worked out that this S3 would cost me 39ppm to do 12k miles a year before insurance and fuel.

For reference, a Leon FR Estate quote from CVH was 29ppm over the same period.

Not everyone likes to view this way, but it's arguably the most effective to do like for like.

I calculated a £15k car via loan to be potentially as low as 28ppm for the same Leon used one year old. Relied on the assumption of reducing balance at 80% over each of the two years.

Depending on model refresh for example, this could be higher and render my cost per mile higher than leasing.

Again, it's not a fair comparison (used v new), but if it must be done, it can at least be done rationally

If only it came with a few options. Metallic Paint adds a few quid each month (no one surely wants and S3 in plain black or white!) and it wasn't insurance group 39! I'd have snapped one right up. Bargain over the term vs buying a new one

So I got a quote for 15k miles, £1500 down - came to £386 per month. With maintenance, it came to £417, so a lot more than £12 a month extra for me anyway...

Great deal on 10,000 miles, ordered, thanks op!

Its all about the engine, I went for plain black, not paying a penny more on a car I will never own, insurance isnt coming out that bad for me, just under £400

Its actually 6,000 PA from the paperwork I got



Edited by: "Superman80" 16th Aug 2016

Ordered this earlier today. First quote they gave me for maintenance came out at around £21 a month. I called them and said that someone on here got it for £12 and they redone the figures and matched it. So worth giving them a call. 6k per year with maintenance came out at roughly 8.4k over 2 years. Delivery October. Can't wait !
