Carfile.net are a broker just like Drivethedeal.com(who no longer supply BMW's at the moment). Car is ordered and comes from a UK dealer and once you have ordered through the broker the dealer will deal with you direct for the rest of the deal.

Deal price is for taking out PCP as there is a £4k contribution for taking out BMW finance but even if you don't want this you can just take it to get the £4k off and then pay off the finance in the first 14 days. If you do want the finance then the APR is 4.9% which isn't too bad!

1 series only. Should be priced around 22k


Yeah you get loads of 340bhp cars around that money, 22k would not even buy you a decent Vauxhall if such a thing existed.

Am I missing something, I think this is a great deal. If people give a negative mark, think they should give their reasons why, so to convince/convert others...
It is a good deal if you are in the market to buy a new car. Not many people are in a position to so new/used leased/purchase all just depends. As for the car it does get really good reviews the shape just isn't for me
If you don't mind financing on the other hand,
Coast2coastcars.co.uk is cheaper with financing. You need to input details for different specifications.

To be honest I haven't used any of the online car brokers to buy a new car. I only use them to find the cheapest price and discuss it with the local dealership.
Carwow is good to find a car in your local area. Good communication as well with Carwow dealers.

I emailed the dealership directly to the link that I find the cheapest price and ask them to beat it. Usually they end up coming back with a price couple of grand above it, which I reply, thanks for the offer but no thank you. I think I was lucky to get one almost near the asking price, £200 more. Give it a try, no harm in doing so.

I very much doubt the audience in this site have 30 grand spare... me included...the deal states 4.9% APR... therefore HP finance.... you would only be the registered keeper and not the owner effectively for the length of the loan ... the the same as a lease deal..... let’s say you pay the same HP payments as I do for a brand new jag XF sport brake, £300 pm including all fees and upfront costs.... you’ll have it for 10 years before you own it..... wah wah wah

Just want to know, a Hire Purchase (HP)/Loan, a Lease/Personal Contract Hire (PCH) and Personal Car Purchase (PCP), do they all result in you being the registered keeper and not the owner for the duration of the contract? After everything is paid off in the case of HP/Loan and PCP, is the car then official yours (as owner and not registered keeper)?

It's PCP, not hp.

With either you are the registered keeper and owner and the loan is secured on the car, just like your house is.....unless you rent.

And you'll be paying circa £300 pcm for a car for £10 years too, granted it'll be less than 3 years old but you are just paying for the depreciation of a cars RRP. If you buy savvy in the first place you can offset the depreciation to quite a degree. I pay £0 per month for a car....which cost more than £30k. Instead I save the money I would spend on finance in whatever form it may be and spend it how I wish instead of being tied to a specific monthly fee. I don't want a car like a phone contract.

It's all about you're circumstances and preferences and stating that the Hukd audience not having £30k to spend is very naive.

You could take out the PCP, then get a loan at 2.7% to pay off the PCP.

It's only a lease where the car isn't yours.

Lol.

I can have a new car every 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 etc years if I want.

You're missing the point somewhat. Buy right in the first place and you have the value in the car still when you come to sell it.

I bought a car for £23k a few years back, had it for 4 years and did 60k in it. Sold it for £10k. You couldn't lease a car for that with all the options that were on it. It's all about buying right in the first place, and usually that's through a broker.

I never suggested using finance, I said use finance to get this deal and either keep it or pay it off with funds from another place.

You carry on leasing if it works for you. Obviously the man maths works for you. If leasing was cheaper than buying then lease companies would have turned to dust years ago.
The f20 BMW 340i was going for 0% and 0 pounds deposit before 2019 g20.

A lot of car compared to the crap produced by turbo charged 4 cylinders in the golf r or s3.

UK prices are stupid. For 28k 2nd hand could pickup a E90 or e92 M3.

The new M5 is 100k but 2nd hand less than a year old with say 3-4000 miles drops to 75k.

And probably doesn't have the same tolerances as the 6 cylinder. The golf r has turbo lag, cheap interior and a rubbish dsg gearbox. BMW gearbox is one of the best rated.

The 6 cylinder is more fun, more torque, smoother and not bad economy wise esp in economy mode for the efficiency dynamic engines.

I have drive a 428i so 2L petrol with a decent turbo or 2 outputting 250 bhp but just runs out of steam above 4000 rpm just like the golf r.

Also have a VW and after a few years the dsg broke at 40000 miles.

Haha.

Can't say turbo lag is anything I've experienced. The interior is of same quality of my 330e and the gearbox is sublime compared to the god awful 8speed box in the bimmer, so not sure why it's so highly rated unless it's just particularly bad with the hybrid. Seats in the BMW are also awful and give me crippling back pain after anything more than an hour.

I've done over 150k over the years in dsg equipped cars and never once has an issue, all over 40k in each.

My profile would suggest otherwise, whomever this m5rcc is.

autoexpress.co.uk/bmw…uto

Interesting dsg VW is on that list but after the experience I would not give to much credence to the review. VW offered to replace it near en gratis. Maybe it's the 330e gearbox...

Never had a problem with the seating in the BMW whether F32/F20 or older variants. Even the 2002 7 series was comfortable and so smooth.
