I have to cover a fair amount of mileage a month for work, claiming 50p a mile. I'm thinking it would be beneficial because I have the peace of mind with it being under warranty. The amount of mileage I do a month would cover the cost of the payments.

Do people think this would be wise?

and much worse mpg, higher insurance, etc. Depends what you want.

davver99

ride is terrible on these


not on 17 inch wheels it isnt. Mine is comfy!

and no dpf...

the milage argument is irrelevant to serious leasers , if you look into it properly you can see the figures, ignore them.

a lot of people are against leasing and see it as a massive waste of money, it takes some thought to get your head around the benefits, and it's a shake up to what they have for a long time seen as the best policy, me included.

keep posting even if it's cold , I did, there are lots of people that enjoy the posts.

? Wtf you talking about (please feel free to put a valid argument together if you don't agree)... Put some facts down or jog on, you have no logic.. If you purchased this car it WOULD depreciate more than £200 pm. Buy this car and it will drop more in value than the cost of the lease.

I am going to add heat to the cold - keep up the good work finding bargains! I am a personal lease lover (a change of car every two years, no depreciation, no tyrekickers, etc) and have in the past found some quality deals. I actually had a (returnable) deposit down on the new Audi Q2 but the thought of paying £30k for a quattro auto with all the trimmings the size of a postage stamp just made me wince! I presently have a 64 plate Skoda Octavia VRS Estate lease that finishes in September and then have a Yeti L&K 4x4 Diesel DSG on order to replace it - total £6,500 over 2 years with 20k miles - that's less than depreciation!! Now watch me get double trolled for Yeti and lease in the same post!!

But i cant see the appeal when i can buy a Honda Civic type r 07 plate (my car) over 3 years at £200 and i then own it. Its faultlessly reliable and great to drive. Being able to own something for the cost of leasing is probably what puts people off. Are people leasing for the reliability or just so they can gave a new reg car on their drive? probably a bit of both



Cars are evolving really fast in terms of technology, comfort etc. Some people like to experience them but If you just need just a basic car and you only care about going from A to B , leasing is not for you. Cannot compare the two as its personal choice buying what you like.

Good advice if it applies. VW lease is a set 6p + vat between 0 - 999999 miles. No mention of a fine and I would assume a standard contract for VW. Worth checking though before you commit.

​In my single experience of leasing, it's the first payment taken after you receive the car.

Can anyone please tell me if the initial first payment £2400 is due when you order or when you receive the car. Thanks

UPDATE!

I've completely changed my mind regarding the car. I've decided to ditch the idea of an estate, feel like I'm too young for an estate and decided I want an Audi A4 saloon, diesel. Undecided on which one atm.

If anyone can point me in the right direction for best places to lease, and offer any other helpful advice it would be appreciated.

Cheers!

So I've got a couple of questions for those who can help:- When you take … So I've got a couple of questions for those who can help:- When you take out a lease deal, can you specify add-ons? Or can you only apply and take out a lease deal exactly as it's advertised on the lease companies website? - I've found a few lease company websites from searching on HUKD. But if anyone has any recommendations for good companies for me to talk to, please could you post their links?- As mentioned, I'm pretty sure I'm going to go for an estate. I've so far considered and shortlisted the following; - Skoda Superb Estate - Skoda Octavia VRS Estate (I noticed today that the Octavia is, from memory, group 23 insurance compared to group 18 for the Superb. Both 2.0 diesels, but with a difference of about 0.5 seconds 0-62. But seems like quite a jump insurance-wise). - Audi A4 Estate - Seat Leon Estate (my mate's got a hatchback and it's a wicked car, and I only found out today that they do an estate, so I definitely want to test drive one of those).Anything else I should be looking at?



1. can generally add options, the lease i took out was working out quite expensive at around £7-8 per 100 in cost the dealer reckoned. Still didn't stop me adding many options...

2. I have been using this company for my Octavia VRS: simpsonsskoda.co.uk/new…rs/ The base price was pretty good for me, but by time I added the DSG gearbox, heated seats, parking sensors, Tinted windows etc it started to add up: £270 per month. I was feeling indulgent though and didn't mind the extra costs for those things.

I've been very happy with the company and apart from build time of 12 weeks then no complaints at all. They even home delivered 200 miles for free for some reason should have been about £150-200 i think!

3. VRS estate diesel 184 is very nice to drive, great spacious cabin, boots great. There are some owner reviews complaining about road noise. I've not found it an issue at all. But the suspension is overly firm on roads which are not well surfaced (many in my neck of the woods). I would seriously recommend you test drive. I personally would consider the Skoda octavia scout: http://www.simpsonsskoda.co.uk/new-car-offers/scout-pch/

But don't get me wrong if a sporty estate is what you want then the VRS is a great car, was just unpleasant for the wife whilst pregnant over the bumps

I like the understated of a powerful car family car or crossover - only exception is hatchbacks. I love a hot hatch to be a bit loud, loved my Honda Civic Type R (FN2) when it came out and the new one looks mental. Also got a soft spot for the Focus RS.



Sure the golf r looks understated which is great. The new Honda type r looks hideous and something from the 1990s and like it had crashed into Halfords

Agree the Golf r is expensive to buy. A decent spec one will be nearer £40K, also the similar but much nicer Audi s3 is about the same price but with options most people actually end up spending just over £40K less discount

The R32 is not in the same league and is old !! Plus there is no way you will get a decent R32 for £8-9K. Good luck with any repairs

While i love the Golf R - it's just to damn expensive in my opinion.. Plus a hot hatch at that speed needs to look like it would eat a new born baby, the Golf R is to subtle in my opinion.




Depends on how you define expensive....VWs are expensive in purely RRP terms, but if you are buying new at 12% discount (achievable) and p/xing (or even better, selling privately) for a very good retained value then depreciation suffered in your ownership term and it gets quite cheap next to the competition. It is for this reason that buying German cars new is quite popular and not as expensive as some people might think. The R is subtle, but I like the "wolf in sheep's clothing" approach.

Does anyone have details of the excess mileage charges? I'd like to do the maths to work out whether I'd be better looking at a 5000/8000/10000 mile deal but can't see the information on the website?

I have an X5 and the ZF box in that (some 10 years old) is considerably better than the DSG fitted to the Caravelle (brand new as of two months ago) I drive at work. With flappy paddles, the DSG makes sense, because it's quicker than a standard auto, but in full auto guise, the DSG is erratic, gets muddled up a lot, and doesn't work anywhere near as well as the 6 speed ZF in my BMW. I'd be interested to see what VW come out with CVT wise. I had an A6 previous to the BMW and the CVT box in that was truly sublime.




Thats a Caravelle though which is a heavy Transporter which will likely be underpowered and the gearing wont be right for the mass it has to haul around. Stick it in a Golf though and its sublime.

It's an average car ? okay. The normal golf is considered a great car for starters. And this is like the best golf out there....

With falling sales, disappointed customers and new gearboxes on the … With falling sales, disappointed customers and new gearboxes on the horizon there are quite a few VW deals knocking around at the moment. The deal might not be so bad, but its the car that's part of the problem.The DSG, (its is holding VW's customers from becoming repeat customers) might be OK for manual drivers who are iffy about autos but for auto drivers it will never be as smooth. I do not even think the DSGs are as quick or efficient as the ZF autos used in a number of other brands like Jaguars and BMW? I know VW are to introduce a selection of new DSG gearboxes and a CVT over next 2 years. With regard not wanting the manual again. Well, you buy a sporty car that you driver hard and its only fluid in upward changes. After that it become laggy, confused, it has to switch the preselect. If your gunning it then it has to engage its torque protection to stop the clutches getting mangled which means frustrating delays and hesitation from the gearbox. In a car like this, clutch down and in to 2nd might just be a lot better, after all this is the Mondeo man car of 201X's!
