Hi all,

Been looking for a 3 series lease deal for ages and about the push the button on this one - will be interested to see if others think this is a good deal, I certainly do. BMW lease deals dont come up often!

No doubt will go cold as its a lease...

Deal is a 2 year lease on a 320d M Sport (Business Media). Personally, looking at the 8000 mile option with 3 month up front payment, on a personal lease including all maintenance - total comes in at £325 per month for this plus £975 up front (and then £180 on admin fees) - £8637 over two years including VAT, just under £360 a month all in equivalent. Cheaper is available if you dont want the maintenance etc (maintenance costing about £520 on this deal total).

I've found one lease deal in the past that worked cheaper per month but that had a very high up front fee and was for 4 years not 2.

Yes mileage is relatively low but as per all lease deals, you are better going low ish to start and paying any excess if required. Or, 10k option is available.

Thoughts appreciated - this genuinely seems like a steal to me, and the lease costs appear to cover little more than the depreciation.

It's a manual so that's me out, but otherwise a very good deal. Details of the car here:

Thanks for the feedback pleased someone else thinks its a good deal before I sign up haha!

I guess maybe because of the competition? (New C class, new A4 and new Jag)

BMW manuals are better. If you want automatic, Mercedes are better.

BMW,s 8 speed zf box is the best auto in it's class.

That's what I have now, but it's getting old (age-wise) so on the look out for my next one when it dies. Would prefer to stick to Merc, but open to decent offers. Thanks for the tip on manual/auto bmw/mercs.

Read up about it online, but can't seem to find from which year onwards BMW introduced it...?

nice .. feeling this

doesn't bmw have a 2yr or 18k miles service interval?

defo the c class for me then the new jag not into bmws too much too many on the road for me

Excellent leasing is the way forwards ! We leased the Golf R no regrets makes perfect financial sense

Voted hot for the effort and explanation given.

Also because I own one, albeit 2008, an oldie but a goldie.

This is a good deal

Thanks for this - assume I'd be better off scrapping the maintenance element then, given that I probably wouldnt expect to change the tyres in this time either?

Anyone know what the first service would usually cost?

Very stereotypical comment coming alert - I just cant quite get past the "older person" image of the jags and mercs personally, hence preferring the beemer.

Cold as ice, could buy a nice car for that price over 5 years, and own it at the end.

And if you don't want to get stuck in the snow buy a front-wheel or 4 wheel drive car.

2008... oldie? oO Should be just running in!

isnt it better to go on that deal were you pay monthly installments for a certain lenght of time then at the end you get the choice to pay it off / hand it back or get another car from then , forgot what you call it now

I agree - I would prefer a 5 series but, and I quote, its "too big" for the girlfriend to drive therefore I'm banned

Would prefer a petrol for 8k miles. Any engine suggestions?

PCP?

Each deal should of course be taken on its own merits, but PCP would work out more expensive generally.

Pcp? They're considerably more expensive.

i would concider the 3 series open top now its a metal folding roof but that would be my limit , they are nice looking cars the beamers apart from the one series just dont like that at all i would rather have the a class amg

yes thats it pcp couldnt think lol

I have a 2004 525i e60 automatic but theres no denying the current gen Mercedes aren't more appealing for me especially if I wanted a automatic diesel. If I do want a manual,it'd have to be a Beamer petrol, they drive better for me but the new Mercedes are just so beautiful.
The Mercedes E diesel is what id want for my next car. Don't like BMW diesel.

Wouldn't get diesel from BMW though.

Excellent deal, you would be surprised how quick this 320d is.
I would have got this but I am not willing to pay this much deposit.

That's right, you are welcome to my 54 plate Vauxhall Vectra Club 1.8 16v for that..

OP - try calling a few dealers.
Most of the larger franchises will price match and won't charge you the admin fee, so you could get yourself a couple of extra Strong Brews and kebabs tonight.

Its as low a deposit as you are likely to get - 3 months is generally (not always) the minimum deposit for a lease deal, and obviously PCP etc deposits are much higher.

can't see maintenance worth paying as it's going to be only 1 oil service if you are only doing 24k within lease period.

16k in fact - yes I am realising the error in my ways here, assumed it would be an annual/10k service schedule.

I'm an auto petrol only person as I've driven too many 'hire' cars at work with diesel engines that are loud (with high vibration) and don't pull well on first gear. I haven't driven the 5 series, but have considered buying a petrol one - problem is that if I had a BMW it would have to be the X5 to pull me away from Mercs

I currently have a 2001 E (W210) and love it. I'd kill for an auto petrol E that's 2010 onwards (not as keen on the 2003-2009 model, but may upgrade to it in the interim as prefer to buy cars cash, than on loan or lease).
