Tell her that there's loads of room for the scissors.

My friends wife just pulled the bumper off one of these by literally just clipping a bollard. Repair bill 2.5k. Not a single metal bolt holding the nose cone to the car - all plastic crap - I know as I had to reattach it so it was driveable. The build quality on this thing was shocking, Mercedes are no longer built like tanks!

Loads of cheap Mercs around at the moment. I'm getting several email per week with various models.

It's actually about £8,040 over the 24mth term making it £335 per month once you have factored in the first pavement of 9mths at 240 plus the 360 admin charge. Still a good deal but the 240/mth in the title is very misleading.

Don't think they have been built like for 20 years, i am sure they are more profitable now though.

Women shouldn't be allowed behind the wheel of a car like this (_;) Bought a car last Saturday & already the wife's kerbed one of the alloys.

Bring back the W123. Good for bond villains, crossing minefield and the weekly shop! Seriously though I have worked on modern BMW's, Audi's and Volvo's and the C Merc was a cut well below

Fully agree, anyway, why lease

The money you save buying a good secend hand keep to one side for services and tyres

Not a lot more to pay out, even on my top spec e320 cdi had it 5 yrs now 2007 model, drives like new, and not a mark on her and still worth 6k part x

There are some good reasons for leasing, it depends on what you want to drive.

For example a car like this will no doubt depreciate more than the £8k cost over the 2 year term. So if you want to drive a new C220d then leasing is the way to go.

What I don't see any point in doing is putting in any more than 3 months deposit/first payment. No point in doing a 6+23 or a 9+23.

You do realise you normally save money with a larger initial payment due to the APR?

Wouldn't you have been better using some hard as nails to stick it back on with, then she would have saved 2.5k

That'll be to do with pedestrian safety features. Cars are currently being made safer and safer to reduce the amount of deaths caused by road traffic incidents. All brands are doing it now.

For instance there's a Volvo recently released that has a pedestrian airbag, so that if you hit a pedestrian, an air bag fires to hopefully prevent their head hitting the windscreen. By 2020 Volvo have pledged that no pedestrians will be killed by one of their vehicles in a pedestrian area.

The deal here is not a good example as their published figures fluctuate but generally if you add up the sums of 3 + 23, 6 + 23 and 9 + 23 you will normally end up with very similar total amount payable.

Edit -

Here is a better example - https://www.nationwidevehiclecontracts.co.uk/Mercedes_a-class-a200d-amg-line-67546.htm

Based on a 24 month lease with10k PA.

£315.54 @ 3 + 23 is 26 x £315.54 = £8204.04

£282.90 @ 6 + 23 is 29 x £282.90 = £8204.10

£256.38 @ 9 + 23 is 32 x £256.38 = £8204.16

£234.40 @ 12 + 23 is 35 x £234.40 = £8204.00

You don't need to explain leasing to me, I've leased over 100 vehicles over the years. Interest rates on Contract Hire can vary between 3-9%. We currently have 18 vehicles on BCH for myself/family/staff. I saved £309 on my own vehicle (Jag XF V6 Supercharged S) by putting 9 down up front.

That's either a bizarre deal or just lazy advertising (where the broker advertises rough and dirty calcs worked out from one profile rather than actual price for each profile).

On average you normally save around £100-300+ if you put down 9 initial payments in place of 3. Most GAP policies cover your initial rental so unless you're living on the breadline, it makes no sense to put down a small initial payment.

Well I have a lease at the moment from a vehicle manufacturer and it follows exactly that profile, pretty much every other lease I looked at was the same. The TAP is roughly the same and only varies by a few pence due to rounding.

Living on the breadline is nothing to do with it. My money is my money and the longer it is in my bank the better it is for me. If the net overall cost to me is the same then why would I put in more than I need to?

My lease from plan was exactly the same total if I put down 9 months or 3 months. I actually ended up doing 1 month upfront.

Does anyone know the excess mileage charge and if excess mileage is a flat rate of tiered?

​why lease?
why not?
No or little servicing costs.
Warranty.
No MOT on a 3 year lease.
No tax on mine.
54mpg in mine.
Up to date car with 5* NCAP
I could go on and on.

Absolute trouble free, no hassle motoring. a high % of US cars and indeed UK cars sold in this way.
