Not a deal for everyone, admittedly, but I reckon this deal would take some beating if you're in the market for a performance saloon.

0-60 in 4.6 secs...everything else is irrelevant

but just in case you're interested:

2 year lease
8000 miles per annum
maintenence not included

2544 initial rental followed by 23 monthly payments of £282.72 = 9046
£150 admin fee

Lease deals are for those that want to show off that they have a new car … Lease deals are for those that want to show off that they have a new car (and tell friends they bought it) that dont really have the money available to buy a car. To me its money down the drain, nearly 10k down the drain in 2 years.. unbelievable.I'd much rather swallow my pride and buy a second hand car 3 or 4 years old for 10k that i actually own and that i could sell on 2 years later for 9k losing only 1k in 2 years rather than 10k. Those that do not have 10k to spend in the first place could just get a 10k loan, at least that way you still will be much better off than losing nearly 10k on a lease deal like this.Many people on here like leasing though, so i await for the backlash of my comments.



You just don't get it. Some people may be looking at buying this car anyway. A £10k loan wouldn't cover a car of this class, let alone this car brand new. "Swallowing your pride" or "not having the money to buy the car" again doesn't make sense.

Let's say I took out a loan for the full value of the car (£35k?), the chances are I would lose £10k in depreciation anyway plus I would have the hassle of selling it if I wanted another after 2 years.

You are trying to argue (albeit very badly) about the merits of new cars vs a second hand example rather than leasing as a form of financing the deal. Next time it might be best moving on rather than replying when you have missed the point so spectacularly.

I can afford the new car I want. Outright.

But I leased it because leasing was cheaper. Saves me thousands.

To understand leasing you have to understand the concept of the cost of motoring. And apply it to yourself to determine what you spend on motoring or what you want to spend. It also helps if you have cash flow and want to cut out car salesmen!

the finance company owns the car and you just give it back after 2 years (no option to buy).

There's a comprehensive guide to leasing here and here, if you're interested

Sounds very sensible to me.
Maybe sensible is not in vogue these days as there are so many jobs and spare money flying around..... apparently.

£9200 for 2 years
Once again over priced
Get bnw 520d or 325d new shapes for around this price at just 3 years old
And you own it... ao try mention depreciation then.thibk you can actually sell the car after 2 years wven.if its for a bargin.price of 4k thats only 5k depreciation not 9.2k!

My 320d 11 plate cost me just 8k last year
With the intrest its 10k
I could sell it in 2 years for roughly 6.5k after doing roughly 70k miles

The only lease deals that are any good are those cheap little cars where 2 years come to 1.5k

I can afford the new car I want. Outright.

Ok however say if you want the 335d. Its a beast of a car. Although they both are the same model, they are different in regards performance. 335d is insanely quick. For those whom want this car it can make sense. New this car is £40k, and 1 year old models are selling on auto trader for £31k. . You loose £9k in 1 year. Of course you have to be honest and say it's a lease car (dream on).

For the record I have never leased a car. I save the money up and buy it cash. That way I do not pay any extra on interest etc. That way I pocket my company car allowance my self. However I do see the point in this method. It only works out really on high end cars, where depreciation is very harsh enough to warrant it. It's based on preference and needs of individuals.
I am due a change now and I might consider this option. It makes sense.

Yeah! Like the leasing company are doing it out of the goodness of their hearts....THEY are making money from YOU, because you dont have the cash or access to a loan. It is quiet simple: at the end of the lease they have made their money off you. Now if you can get the monthly payments to be picked up by your business it is a different matter entirely.

A joke, 8k for a car like that for a year to drive.... Get real! COLD

The amount of lease deals on here and people still don't get it

8k miles is way too little for that price.

Good find!! its very simple, if you want this car new then its the cheapest way to get it. Sensible comments would be "no i found it cheaper here" or "better mileage here" etc. I have done leasing, owned own cars outright and they all have a cost per month, the worst loss per year was a 4 year old Renault, bought, not a lease!! Its down to you to work out how much you want to spend on a nice/normal car.

I ordered one of these 2 weeks ago, most of the big lease companies have similar deals going, just have to make sure comparing like for like with milage, fees etc.

I used to be in the slightly older car camp but as hotuklols says, once you figure out what you're paying for motoring and what you want (or are able to pay) you can then make your choice. Certainly not for everyone.

I had a 5 year old car at one point, looking at depreciation, servicing, tax, tyres, exhaust, putting aside for the occasional big ticket items like clutch etc. it was costing me nearly 400 a month. (Bought and paid for but if I needed to sell was going to lose as you almost always do.)
At the point of calculation, I promptly sold it and leased a brand new, fully warranted, maintained, BMW for less money. Even saved on fuel as it was more efficient. Now a dedicated leaser.

I know my budget for motoring, I like to have fixed costs with no surprises, I like the reassurance of having a brand new car, works for *me*

When I started typing the deal was ell cold, by the time I was finished, much hotter, guess the leasers have woken up lol

You're comparing apples and oranges.

If you want to drive a new 335d X drive for two years, this is a cheap way (all costs considered) of doing it.

No-one really cares what you drive, especially if it's an old low spec. diesel BMW! ;); it's not relevant to this deal.

Ridiculous comment. Would be like me saying that Second hand cars are for people who can't afford a new car.

Reality is and a lot less green eyed monster view is that leases are a cost effective way for people wishing to have and renew a new car every 2-3 years.

For example, I was recently looking to buy a Touareg and was looking to buy a 3-5 year old one for about 24-30k. in the end a 2 year lease deal to get a new car was more or less the same price over 2 years (factoring depreciation, maintenance etc). No brainer really, as is this deal if things a motor that you want.

surely you are just expressing a preference and choose to own a second hand car? if the 'silly' people didnt lease or buy new you couldn't buy second hand. personally I'm in your camp but having owned new can say there is a big difference in the way the car feels when it is new rather than new to you

A great deal - unfortunately, posted at the wrong time hence a lot of cold votes.

This is a top of the range 3 series with 300+bhp, 4 wheel drive, automatic with a load of tech, nav, leather seats etc. for an equivalent of £383 per month.

Porsche 911 996 Carrera.

My choice would be a coupe manual in grey, with as few miles as possible, probably going for an older model as long as the mileage is under 80k.

Seriously though, I really do believe that people need to understand depreciation curves better and why certain cars have different rates of depreciation to others. A car is most people's second most valuable asset (after their house) and yet so few people seem to understand how their value changes over their lives.

As some people have posted on this thread, all they see is the price they pay up front for a purchase or over the lease term for a lease.

people don't understand that a car is a deprecating asset and until you can understand this concept a lease deal won't work for you

Thats great, if you want a second hand car.

I purchased a C-class Mercedes 220 Sport with all the AMG trimmings plus it was the 125 edition in 2011. With all the extras (options ) I added on, the car cost me £36,000. A year later, I was looking into changing the car, I'd only done 4000 miles. I was offered £19,000 at the garage. In the autotrader, they were selling for £22,000. So in a year, I'd lost out £14,000 if I had leased it, this would have cost me around £8,000 to £9,000 for 2 years.

So if like me, you regularly change your car 1-2 years, this is actually a good option. Something I will be considering, next time I'm due to change.

For those who state " You don't understand the concept of leasing" , to those who don't agree with a lease, don't you think that's a little naive of you ?

Looked at leasing a few times. Never seemed to be worth it for me.Always bought cars 2-3 years old. Best buy was a 2007 BMW 330i cab. Paid 14500 for it. Sold it for 9500 4 years later.

This time bought a brand new BMW. Shop around and if you are prepared to travel I managed 20% discount. So could drive it for a year and sell for the same price I paid ... But I plan to keep for many years as it's an amazing motor.

Problems with this deal ...... It's diesel? No point if you want a performance car get petrol. Cheaper to run. Also forget the 3 series go for the 4. More space and looks a lot better.

Looks like you got a good deal on the current motor. Can't really compare your other purchase though, was 7 years old when you got rid, any mention of the maintenance costs of the older motor?

for what it's worth, I'm not a big fan of leasing or buying new. I have always gone for second hand, however sometimes these lease deals are so good (like this one) that you'd be silly to buy.

I don't want to waste my money on a depreciating asset! Leasing is the best way forward if you like a new car every 2-3 years!

What an odd comment , I fail to see your point here , part from trying to twist my comment to suit your own point of view and opinion

put it this way, this deal is extremely hot if you were on the market for a brand new 330d 3 series . it's not cheap by any means but it's great value for this particular car. i doubt theres any other way of running this car cheaper over 2 years.

this deal is cold if you were on the market for 'a' car which can save you money in the long run.

its not my position to " educate you" as you put , however this only proves that you fail to understand why others possibly don't like this deal
