Actually £174pm when you factor in the initial deposit. Great price though.

I’d like to welcome everyone who asks whether you own it at the end, why anyone would lease something you have to give back instead of buying an £8k car, whether you need to insure it and whether you need to get it serviced.

Thanks for coming!

8,000 miles won’t get you to the shops everyday.


Shop there and back 10miles at a stretch, 365. days a year. 3,650miles. Move close to the shops and stop bitching.

You say that like it’s hassle free but my ex had an old mini and it was plagued with costly issues, like when the Speedo stopped working and she paid £800 to BMW to take the dashboard apart and replace a few components. Play the used car lottery all you like, or just lease and end up paying about the same for less hassle in many cases

Is there really any need to call people fools because they have different opinions and priorities to your own?

That’s not a 5 door
Picture is only for illustration apparently on the web site.
I got an SD on lease last year
Cost me £5,200 for 2yrs with 10k/yr. Bog standard with no packs/options.

It’s a decent car but I would suggest checking out with all your luggage/bags/buggys/child car seats before you make commitment.

Although ppl think it’s a bigger mini and the size of a regular hatch, it’s cramped in the rear.
I think my first service will be due around the 15k mark.

Otherwise it drives quite well. In winter I’m getting 45-50mpg driving urban. Mostly Motorway will get you 60-65mpg

4yrs is long commmitment for any lease so just make sure this is right car for you
Great price, but not over 4 years. Any issues after year 3 and no warranty...

I don't get the lease culture. Good for second hand car prices tho, can pick up a Mini Cooper S under 3 years with a decent miles for less than £12k now

the 3 year lease on this works out at £195 pm over term with monthly and initial, somewhere around £7k.
personally think that's the better option other than the 4 year lease but not convinced it's a good deal, unless you want to drive a new mini for £1500ish?

How much do you think your 8 year old car will be worth after another 4 years and how much do you think it will have cost you?
No doubt your the person that says they are driving a 25k car after paying 12k for it when it's 3 years old.

Or they can afford to lose 2k a year and can't be asked with the hassle that comes with owning a 8 year old car.

You can cancel any contract once you have paid 50% or upgrade or renew.

I like the fact I don’t have a car that keeps breaking down and extra bills. Not Interested in the reg plate.
I was wondering, is there any free service plan for whole lease or you have to pay for all maintenance? I mean for example brake pads, discs, tyres or any defects etc

I don't feel the need to say how much my car is worth to anyone as not important to me. Which is partly why leasing a brand new car isn't in my opinion worth it. Unless of course you like having the ability to say You are driving a brand new car (you don't own) worth £25k and are limited to the number of miles you can drive. Each to their own. No doubt there is a leasing problem in this country though

Wasn't aware that was an option, is that standard for a lease?
Had a mini when I was 17, never again.

No different to paying a mortgage in my eyes, you don't own it untill you have paid it off. I personally like to buy a 3 year old car and run it into the ground but I also always have a car on lease because I can't be bothered with running two old cars and the trouble they can bring.

Sounds like PCP, not PCH.

Yeah same, I've had my car for 6 years and won't change until it's costing me more to upkeep vs buying another. The only difference with a house is you own the at the end. I can see how leases are attractive, and in some situations works well (no hassle being the biggest). But leases are becoming an issue which is no wonder regulators are getting interested
john19723 m ago

Is it cheaper else where?


Not a hot deal in my eyes, cheapest or not.

Regulators are interested in PCP, where the dealer tells you your car will be worth X in 2 years and just it bring it back and we will do a new deal.

These are like endowment mortgages, and you might not get enough of a return for your next deposit.

A lease is different, you don’t have any investment in the car, if it’s value is worth more or less it doesn’t matter. You need to save for your next deposit as you will get nothing returned- it is all agreed up front.
