Was literally just looking at Leon deals. I have a 150 Diesel now but I own it... keen to get into finance perhaps with the uncertainty around Diesels. Would want a 150 though, can't go smaller now. Will browse.

Yes I currently own a car with a Diesel engine and considering selling it now it's still worth something. So looking at 2nd hand petrol cars and leasing to figure out what makes most (financial) sense.
Would prefer to keep the current Diesel vehicle but a parking permit for Diesels down here is already more expensive already than petrol, and cities will ban them from the centre in the future so that will affect residual value.
Plus if they go wrong Diesel engines are complicated and more expensive to repair (DPF and EGR valve failures are very common)

But if it's cheaper to lease, I'll lease.I am not keeping a car for more than two years. My choice. I don't want to. I would change at a year if I could.You only have one shot at this life. I enjoy cars/driving. To buy a new car and sell it two years later will cost you more than leasing, if you pick the correct vehicle/deal, it's not rocket science.I don't want to buy used, I prefer to have untarnished vehicles and ones that I can spec to my needs. Good night.

If anyone wants a link to a good car lease deal thread on another forum, let me know. Car leases in HUKD is so pointless as the constant anti-leasing brigade out in force for every post makes it really tiresome to follow.

Try Google.
This deal passes the deprecation test for me, using the 10,000 mile deal as an example

Useful comparison. I found new cars from £16k. Leasing is still cheaper for a brand new car & keeping two years. Leasing not so good when you look at buying a 1-2 year old car and hold for 4+ years.

Leasing will never be for people who want to buy a used car and keep it for 4 years.

The only problem with that comparison is that nobody ever pays list for a car.

This car is available for £12,709:

therefore making the total cost at £3,974 if you had bought. Given this is just another £100, then fine, one can say for peace of mind of not having to go and find a buyer, is to lease it.

I'd happily swallow that £100 for the luxury of being able to nonchalantly hand the keys back to the lease company and say "there ya go pal" on to the next one...

Not to mention, being to able to avoid the agonising process of trying to sell privately to swathes of time wasters, crooks or people who have a similar IQ and 1 dimensional view of the world such as Rogparki.

Admittedly, not all private buyers are that bad, I think I've just been unlucky in the past.

Of course, that was my ending point, but stating a OTR price that no-one ever pays to work out the cost of ownership is not the best of methods.

You'd be surprised. I've seen a few threads in here where people are contemplating between two 'deals' they have been offered by a car salesman only to find (after someone of here points it out) they are paying well above the drivethedeal price.

Are those the same people who think they're getting a great deal with the 'scrappage' offers currently being offered by desperate manufacturers?
... so who wants to flog me their diesel / tech pack Leon ?

I worry that some people don't work out which is the cheaper option for them and end up leasing for longer than they should.
Great little engine, especially when paired with dsg gearbox
