For info, averaged out, about £156/month.

Have just sold one of these,the the 1.4 grossly underpowered to the point of being dangerous. For the size of the car it needs to be at least 1.6

This is 1.4t should have 150bhp? Did you have the 1.4vvt 100bhp?

​hi

are you sure it was the same as this one a 1.4 Turbo and not the standard 1.4 petrol

This 1.4T is rated as

0 to 62 mph (secs) 7.8

Top Speed 134

Engine Power - BHP 150

which is not to bad at all

The new model is better than the old. Heat added but makes the Audi deal I got look even hotter

This is the new turbo model - should be quick enough for most

Great price for top spec Astra with leather. The list is crazy high on these and not much discount about.

What's the Audi deal you got?

This looks great. If there are any damages caused like alloys scratched etc do you get charged at the end of the lease?

Of course (beyond acceptable wear and tear)! If you bought this car on a PCP and returned it in below average condition would you expect a top p/x price against your next one?

Asalam2k4

yes if its beyond fair wear and tear they will charge you have a look at the guides on ​BVRLA that outline what fair wear and tear is in a lease for returning it. i mean a damaged alloy is not the end of the world if its a small scratch but if it was significantly damaged/gored you are going to get charged id say

I have a 1.4 petrol SRi and have never had an issue with power from it, but I suppose I never really need to go 0-60 in six seconds

audi deal is yesterdays news this is a good deal for a decent spec new car

Cheap fixed cost motoring. Nice find OP. Heat added. Now await all the stupid comments on a lease deal...

By all accounts the new Astra is a massive improvement too. Not driven one, but reviews are positive which is good news for Vauxhall.

And at the end of the day if you bought and sold a newish car the same would apply. You either repair it or the buyer is likely to knock the cost of repair off the asking price

Over on Pistonheads huge lease thread I've read that the charges can actually be quite competitive with some lease suppliers. For example I remember one poster saying he kerbed some alloys and was planning to get them repaired before handing back. Just out of interest he thought he'd query what the lease supplier charged and was amazed it was half that of the cheapest quote he'd got.

I guess you shouldn't assume they will always whack a huge mark up on any repairs and check prices with the lease company before getting any work done yourself. You can see for alloy repairs economies of scale probably mean they can be much cheaper then you could achieve for a single repair.

True, I sent one back with proper damage on all 4 corners from parking on london streets, the bill was £350.

From a n00bs point of view, it seams leasing might be more attractive if the car you're after has a high list price.

This doesn't include first year free insurance or anything like that does it?

Yep, if you want a brand new car by far the best bargains will only be available via a lease

it might jsut be me but 8k miles a year isnt alot. I do just over 20k

Its worth nothing the excess milage generally isn't too bad. Its normally 5p per mile (inc VAT) so an extra 4,000 mile over 2 years is £200. £200 per month (over 24 months) is an extra £8.33 which makes the averaged price about £164. Still cheap.

Great car quite a bit better than the older one (which was also a decent car). The 1.4 turbos have always been good engine choices.

The old 1.4 is not dangerously underpowered if you know how to drive and dont expect it to pull away at 25mph in 4th.

oh wow that isnt too bad, i thought (assumed) it was way more than that. thats about the same I am paying for my car on finance now and its nearly 4 years old. I might have to consider a lease when im done.

I have regularly driven both the new astra and the old astra. As it has already been pointed out the old one was an ok vehicle. The new one however is superb, new powertrains mixed with a lighter body give a better feel to the drive, better fuel consumption and better performance. Shame you can't get OnStar with this deal as having your car as a 4G hotspot is awesome if you have kids!

What's the stock spec for the elite model? You get that lovely screen?

Also anyone got a confirmed excess mileage cost?

hukdbargain

Yes. Also free petrol.



It was a genuine Q, but cheers anyway, I got the answer through the thick sarcasm!

To be fair both of my last leases have been at least 7 or 8 pence per mile for excess miles, even more if you go over 10,000 excess miles. That being said I still think this is a decent deal even if you go over the 8k mileage allowance by a few thousand miles.

Just for those who are thinking of leasing or buying 1 let me say DON'T GO FOR THE 1.4 no power at all for such an heavy motor, the wife drives 1

its 148 bhp and 200kg lighter. is that the one you have?

it is also £1000 more expensive! For a lease deal to work for me it has to cost less than £2k per year. This top of the range Astra does the A4 does not and is not top of the range. Sure it is better brand snobbery but that aside it is bigger.

I've just gone from an Astra to an A4, it's not just brand snobbery. The whole car is more refined and just better put together.

Had the Astra from new too and has been faultless in the last five years.

Wife or car?

I would of thought being the elite it will be good spec I've been quoted on the elite with sat nav for £119 a month just waiting to hear about delivery dates
I have a work van so 8k a year will be fine for me I did go and look at the new a4 yesterday its a big car and I have to say the avant was very nice but as usual the one in the showroom was a s line Quattro with all the bells and whistles
My current banger costs me £300 a year to tax and does 30mpg at best so based on this I would be at least £600 better off over the 2 years and that's without the lower fuel costs and no mot's and repairs to worry about
