Surely one of the best deals so far?

I know it's horses for courses and I do understand car leading and who it works for and who it doesn't, but £7k to borrow a Golf for two years...... I just couldn't do it.

Good deal if you would be looking to buy one new and chop it in in two years time though, but I suspect very few people do that anyway.

This is a cracking deal!

Why always estates??

Quite a lot of people take car allowance instead of company car and these kind of deals suit them very well.

I wish I wasn't addicted to my cars but sadly I am and usually change every two years (never a new one due to depreciation). Leasing has been the best thing I've ever done. A brand new car with zero unexpected repairs for two years and in the case on the R a fantastic car as well.

I used to know a guy with a Stagea import which was amusing and this is nearly as fast. It just reminds of one of those because you can chuck it around too

Having just leased a Qashqai through Gateway2Lease I can highly recommend them.

I know the previous deal for Gateway2Lease was pulled from the site before for the following reasons:
"This was removed as the thread breached our site rules and the actual seller of the item is suspended from our platform."

Not sure it will hang around on here long if that is still the case.

Don't worry, you're not alone! This is a great deal for what it is, if you're inclined towards leasing... but borrowing something for 2 years for £7,000 just seems insane to me. You can get some lovely cars for £7,000 and you'll still have something to show for it after 2 years!

Oh well each to their own and all these people leasing brand new cars means more second hand bargains for the rest of us to pick up in the future lol.

Think of it another way.

You want a new car, 15k these days gets you a Ford Fiesta.

I've currently got a 28k Octavia which has cost under 5k to lease for 2 years.

If I continue to lease, which I expect to do so, I'll have spent perhaps just more than a Fiesta and had a far nicer car imo which is never over 2 years old.

​The list price is not the same as the price you'd pay from the dealer. There was a 335d on here a few months ago for £30k, it retails at £40k+

Look at it this way. If you were inclined to buy this car new then the likelihood is you'd pay more than £7k in depreciation over the 2 years. It might not make sense to you but leasing can be a very cost effective way to drive a new car and this is a pretty good deal for a car like this.

Just have to go to the right dealer. Currently, you can get a Golf R Estate for £6440 all-in with 10k pa. Also these include nav and winter pack as standard. Majority didn't get that 3 months ago.

So imagine you buy that for £30k. Two years later it's worth £23k on private sale. It's cost you £7,000 in depreciation, plus whatever you've spent on maintenance (let's say two services at £300 each) and you have the hassle of selling it privately, or the indignity of being offered £20k on trade in for it (meaning it's actually cost you £10,000 in depreciation).

Owning only really makes sense once a car reaches 3 or 4 years old, in my opinion.

I wish this deal was about 3 months ago instead of the Audi A6 Avant I've got now, it's crap

True - Mine came to £6403.20 direct with Northampton VW - with Car net.

Heated seats isn't a major issue when they're cloth, if they were leather - then maybe it would be more worth it.

​Yeah it is a total mine field. I buy a car that's 5 years old for £6/7/8k but 100,000 miles on it in three years and sell it for peanuts. This is the cheapest way of owning a reasonable car for my circumstance. Or at least I think so. I'd love one of these, just prohibitively expensive for someone of my means and miles.

But isn't it just like an extended version of hiring a car for the weekend? You'll get charged silly money at the end of the lease for any damages, such as alloys scuffs/ scratches / parking dents etc.

It is certainly a good way of owning a new car, but alas there are pros and cons, just need to decide which one works for you

Having had my golf r estate from the april deal just over a week, can't praise this car enough it really is superb and being an estate has the extra practicality... just dont expect 40mpg!

I'm pretty sure you do. Unless someone keeps swapping mine back to cloth from leather when I drive it...

No. I got the VW Tiguan deal over a year ago and when the car gets delivered you get a booklet of acceptable dinks and scuffs. I was actually surprised how much they let you get away with. It's through vw so don't try ripping you off.

There are a lot of cheap lease deals out there at the moment, for good reason. They are an effective way for the auto manufacturers to dump surplus cars without dropping the new list price or offering silly discounts.

The lease company is getting these cars for a massive discount off list and dumping them into the auction market afterwards. Say the list for this one is £33,385. Lease Company probably paying £25,000 and selling after two years for £22,000. Their depreciation is far less than the lease payments. It is good business for them. Sadly, Joe Public can't always get hold of them new for £25,000 (though there are often websites that can help).

Best deals tend to be available only on certain models.

So, bargains to be had if you are flexible on model and spec.

oooh pay loads of money for a car youll never own. cold

For anyone after a higher mileage deal, I'm in the process of putting an order in with these guys.. vehicles4work.com/per…ate

3+23 20k a year, £362.99 a month with £1088.96 initial payment.

Great deal considering we nearly went through with a C250D, same lease profile but higher initial payment and around £425 a month.
