a steal to run such a car. list price on this must be in the region of 45/50k.

9 speed box, 0-60<7 sec and you can get all the kids stuff in the back.

6+23 @ £289.99+VAT

total cost over the term just over £10k, therefore £5k per year.
mileage is 10k p/a

note: this includes the premium plus pack incorporating Reversing camera
Memory Package
Panoramic glass sunroof
Surround sound system - Harman Kardon ® Logic 7 ®
Hands-free-access
Keyless-Go

List price is £46k + options, but Drive the deal have it up for £37k + options (indicative of discounts available) for a real world comparison of the value of the lease. Still probably a good price for 2yr lease IMO.

5k a year? Would be like going out with a super model and only being allowed to sleep with him/ her a coupe of times a year.

Nice car shame about its @ss. Kind of like going out with a supermodel who has everything but she's got an @ss so big there are satellites orbiting it

Yeah but you can a lot in a big @ss!

a steal to own such a car. list price on this must be in the region of 45/50k.

Shame then you'll never own one, this is a lease deal, so you are renting it.

That's why you rent

I paid £2k 10 years back for an E-Class W124 - it didn't quiet look like new on the outside close up but it drove like new. After a couple of years of ownership a moron drove into the side of it as I was ambling along and wrote it off. I didn't buy the same again and have been lower class ever since.

I can recommend looking for an older well maintained Mercedes, then you can enjoy luxury motoring for next to nothing.

Very nice car esp. in estate guise.

There are a lot of Mercs on rental deals at the moment mostly b/c the market in the UK is very much wanting the XF and 5 series. This 350 model is hard to shift to business clients as the BIC is higher then the lower output models and private buys get itchy at the premium for the 350 engines.

Apart from buying it used you might not get a sweeter deal if you want the 350 engine!

Super hot deal, but would prefer the saloon over the estate

Alot of car for the money though, its bound to lose more than 10k in 2 years so the lease seems the logical choice if you want one of these

Decent price but bear in mind, this is the worst car in it's class out of the big 3 German's,

Personally I'd rather not look like a broke old man.

You could also buy a 1970's Bentley and pretend you used to have money......

When it makes more sense to rent than to buy, why buy? You're not going to live forever, nor is the car.

Nope, I have the money to do so but why take the hit when you can take advantage of this offer? If you are happy driving around in a beat up old banger pretending your are driving in some kind of luxury more power to ya. But if you want the bells and whistles, modern tech and yes, dare I say it the prestige of owning a new car this is a no brainier. Having pride is not a crime.

Look to your left for what I use as my daily driver. Much more fun.

Its been proven that buying a new diesel is a false economy. Im not sure how this factors in with a Lease car though?

I love it when the haters for car lease deals come out! If you like a nice car and want hassle free motoring for a couple of years... Then leasing is the way forward

That is a steal!

Agreed. After years of either buying cars outright, car loans, bangernomics.. I think leasing is the way I want to go now.
Edited by: "chicaneuk" 15th Sep 2014

These sado's hate it for some reason. They they tell you how great it is driving an ancient version of the same brand and how luxurious and cheap it is all at the same time. If I wanted a piece of sheet car Id look for a deal offering one. Why they come here I dont know. To convert us all the mediocrity and brown Cardigans I presume?

Last "steal deal" from Tilsun for the BMW 330d turned out to be a hoax.
Don't get your hopes too high with this company.

OP should include the administration fee, usually around £300.

As usual with leasing deals:
- road tax is included in the price, (you don't pay any)
- you have to arrange your own insurance just like with any other car
- maintenance is extra
- you usually get a white car, and have to pay extra for any other colour
- you get free breakdown cover

Just how in secure would you have to be

id rather own an old banger which you could buy and run for 2/5ths the price of the wonga youre squirting down the drain just renting this Murky

I wish I was awesome and secure as you........

Maybe not everyone is living on the bare bones of their asss like you and actually enjoy owing a new car and at the same time save some money. Remember, not everyone here is a broke as you.

Thanks OP. This is looking like it might be the deal I was looking for.

Never looked into leasing before, and it's a scary new world, but it seems to me that if Total Lease Costs over 2yrs < 2yrs depreciation, then it's better to lease.

Am I being too simplistic?

But youre not owning it ...!!

Fair enough if you could AND this deal saves over ownership.

Me , ill spend it on my yacht



Id hate to see what you actually class as a Yacht....

No, you dont 'own' it, but unless you pay cash for it you never own it anyway. Only a fool would pay cash for a car.

Quickly scanning the same lease company's website, the same sort of money would get you a fairly low spec VW Passat estate or Ford Mondeo estate. Or two entry level Vauxhall Astra estates.

Credit to the OP for posting a good deal. Whether it's the sort of car you'd chose, it's certainly a lot of car for the money.

But how many people that buy a new car actually own it outright?! The vast majority need credit of some form. In effect the finance company owns it until it is paid off 3 or more years down the line... At which point the chances are you'll be looking at another new one... And so it continues!

Nope. its that simple other than make sure the mileage is enough or else you pay!

Personally I wouldn't buy it but love the jealous haters who don't see this as renting. I would assume many have PCP plans with a balloon payment at the end but hand back & get a new one rather than pay it?? Renting?? Or are you convinced because they give you a few £ from it towards your next purchase you're an owner.

If you own great for you - but it's not an option to all of an option many want. I'd rather have my cash in the bank & not on the drive.

Business all over the country lease because it makes economical sense. A car is a tool to get you to A to B & if it looks nice then great. Haters are probably planning on buying a car & owning it forever but what NONE of us ever stop doing is paying - wear & tear, depreciation, maintenance.

I can't see the point of a 10k a year mileage allowance & again that's personal. If you can get a vehicle like this for the same price on 30k miles that would be a deal for me.

On the subject of an older car great idea if you don't do too many miles as parts aren't cheap on a Merc, BMW, Audi etc

Agree with the rest, not too sure about usually having to have it in white. Its usually a subset of white/black/silver (generally the least offensive/most desirable colours, but if a particular colour is predicted to protect residuals most, yes they may order all the cars in that colour).

Depends what you want to do at the end of year 2, whether to enter another lease or buy outright or buy another car.

Some people say, "if it appreciates in value then buy it, if it depreciates then lease it."

Great deal. There are some foolish people on here re 'renting' cars. The car is a depreciating asset. If you want a new car of this quality, if you bought it you'd lose circa 8k a year in depreciation. It costs you 5K a year on lease. You'd have to be mad to buy the thing and also lay down 40k in cash or loan! Change your mindset. I used to buy all my cars. Sometimes kept them 5-6 years, but when you sell it has depreciated. Currently I am running a new CLS Shooting Brake. It's a 52k car and I have it on lease at 2 payments down, 326 a month inclusive of Vat at 12K miles a year incl Road Tax on a 2 year lease. So it's 4K a year. It costs as much to run a new Mondeo. If I bought it, it would cost me at least 8, and possibly 10 a year in depreciation. Admittedly I got a cracking deal, but 4-5k a year to drive around in a top end new Merc is peanuts if that is what you want to spend your money on and can afford looking at this end if the market. Again, I'd simply be an idiot to buy one.

Guys, just accept this happens every time this subject is raised. These people have no understanding of leasing therefore come up with contrary arguments, mainly to stick their twopenneth in rather like a child would trying not to lose. You're flogging a dead horse. If they can't work it out then leave them to it.
