Different spec. Good price though.
45% cost of MRRP for a 4year old car and hand back at only 32k miles? Coldddd

Because owning a BMW is a PITA.

Road tax, tyres are normally included with leases

You miss the point. Leasing for four years takes you beyond the three year warranty and you'll need to get an MOT too.

Not MOTs and out of warranty issues.

Road tax will be £450 a year. I have a m sport and in one year i have gone through £600 worth of tyres. That’s 1k a year just there potentially saved by going through lease.
If you buy bmw service pack they cover any mot failures.

Ok... mr expert
This isn’t a lease deal though unless I am mistaken, it’s PCP
I have a BMW. Not sure it’s relevant but I saw the question come up.
Seems a lot of money to me. Do you get service and tyres in this? Can’t see where it says either way but can’t see them including tyres. Either way it’s a min of £1.50 a mile. That doesn’t include servicing tyres or any end of lease charges for any damage etc. 8k limits you to around 20 miles a day, seems quite limiting. For £20k you can buy a 1 year old 320 msport and it’s yours to keep. If you want a new number plate outside your door to impress the neighbors fair enough but that’ll only impress for 6 months then you’ll have a 1,2,3,4 year old £100 a week garden ornament. I’d much rather spend 20k on something I can keep and do with what I want.

Not meant to be like for like. It is simply trying to show how poor a buy it is. Second hand 320 yes but I am talking about a 1 year old car with 10-15k miles on the clock. A car you can keep and will be worth at least £10k after 4 years. Of course the 340 is quicker, 0-60 5+seconds and top end 155 but the 320 msport will do 0-60 in little over 7 seconds and top over 140mph, plenty quick enough don’t you think? You can do as many miles as you like and don’t have to worry about every little dent or scratch that could tot up when you return it. You can service it when and where you like, carry out any modifications you like. So it costs around half what this costs and you can do more with it.

Woaw, i own a f20, i tought my tyres are not different than 3 series, even they are expensive, i did not pay more than 400-450. Rears are abiut 120-140 each fronts are about 80-100 each. Good year flatruns standard bmw tyres. And they are good for 2 year min. For 16k.

If you buy a 1 year old car someone else has took the hit on the depreciation. Of course the Suzuki comment is silly in fact childish. The 320 msport is very close to the performance of the 340 as far as 0-60 and top speed. The Suzuki will be 12 or 13 seconds 0-60 so not the same or even close, and it’s tiny and poorly specified and doesn’t have the pedigree of a bmw and it’s just rubbish, and it has Suzuki written on the badge. Both BMW’s are the same size, and similar in many ways, you know, same manufacturer, same parts, same build, same factory, same warranty. They are very similar and a one year old 320 msport is the same price as the lease being charged on this 340. The 340 performs slightly better but, now here’s the big difference, IT’S NOT YOURS the 320 msport one year old IS YOURS, you own it! If you don’t want to own a car you can give it away and you’ll still be no worse off! Suzuki yeah just like a bmw

Yes a 10-15k 1 year old car to own for the same price as a new lease car you will never own is much better.
For normal driving they are close enough, especially as you only have very limited 8k pa use of your 340. Also if it’s just performance then you could get a 335 xdrive for 22-24k. That will beat this 0-60, 4.8sec. and 4wd.
No, I don’t own a hotel, but I do own my house, my car, all of my personal possessions.
Nothing wrong with leasing if the numbers add up but these don’t. It is just not worth it that is why it has the rating it does on here.
i don’t need to quote you, your implication was obvious.
you can nit pick all day but this is a bad deal and there are many better buying options, the 320 I quoted was just one, the 335 xdrive another and as it is a buyers market at the moment I could go on all night with much better options than this.

Forever amazed by how many geeky, know it all losers there are out there on what should be a helpful, informative website/app!! This is a fantastic deal for a fantastic car. If you can find a better deal for this particular vehicle then please post as I’m sure prospective buyers would be delighted but don’t give us amateur Jeremy Clarkson reviews of the car or comparisons with cars nowhere near the quality of this 340i. Please go and bore someone else! Heat added
