Yep I can confirm these prices are correct. I bought the Lux for £22k 2 months ago. That's taxed and on the road factory build. Arrives this month.
Yep. You basically pay for the depreciation when leasing, similar if you buy brand new. Except leasing has significant benefits for some people’s scenarios, such as mine. Eg company car

Where can you get them for £21k out of interest?
Just bear in mind you can pick these up brand new for £21k, so ignore the £30k price tag, this is a run out model and seat for a few months now have been clearing these out with some decent lease and purchase deals. This is quite expensive over 3 years, there was a deal last month here £6500 over 2 years 10k miles per annum,
