I would change the title to include the fact it's a lease......nearly had a heart attack and thought that was a purchase price.......was gonna buy two!
If I hadn't just signed up for a lease car a month ago I'd be all over this! These deals always turn up when I'm already signed up to something else...maybe next time!

No, but you are on the hook for the full value of the vehicle should anything happen to it. My advice if fully comprehensive with low excess and also gap insurance too. Better be safe than sorry.
Should specify that its a lease deal indeed. Thought it was too good to be true
Cracking price
Deal is about 24 hours too late! Most are now sold out.

is this a good … is this a good deal?http://www.simpsonsskoda.co.uk/new-car-offers/fabia-se90/


Yeah
Do people seriously think this was anything other than a lease? A new GTi for less than a Dacia?! oO

Shame I took a Yeti deal recently or I'd have been in!
What's the mile allowance pls?
says deal no longer available
That's crazy cheap to lease a GTI for 2 years. heat.

Seems to be a bit more expensive now - £199.20 / £1,195.20 initial
Good to see a decent size engine. Some lease deals come with an acceleration outstripped by passing butterflies.
Slightly more expensive (£5,852) and less miles 5,000 - but might be of interest to someone.

Nearly £6k for two years...plus it's a VW. Better cars and deals around.

Yes because it has an Umbrella under front passenger seat.

Why would someone go for a more expensive one with less miles over this … Why would someone go for a more expensive one with less miles over this deal?


Because this deal had probably expired.

Cheers. But would rather crawl naked across broken glass than own a panda (which will lose about £3k over two years anyway)

You'd rather borrow a Golf than own a Panda?
That's called a vanity tax and you're welcome to pay it.

No wonder everyone calls these things Vanity Wagons.

I think you will find that the Fiat is rated MORE reliable than a golf and warrantied too, you will also find VW are merely average in reliability there are better value and more reliable cars out there.

Check out reliabilityindex.com the Fiat is at 56 the golf is at 78.......

Is his/her money, I don't care, you will note my comment was "you're welcome to pay it"

haha apologies!

well i hope some people have been able to get this offer or a similar price at least!
Wounded - I pay around this price for a GT Edition. Heat added shame it wasnt available when I was looking.

​You could own a bike for a months payment on the Panda, Or pay nothing and walk. But neither of those gets you in a Golf GTi. You haven't even given an equivalent vehicle. Also, who honestly calls GTi a vanity wagon? I've NEVER heard them called that. Its hardly a Bentley convertible.
Owning vs rental is moot. Give the GTi back and it's cost you X. Buy the Panda and it's depreciated Y. Either way you've lost money. If you really wanted a GTi and instead you bought a Panda then you've wasted money. Do you post up on all the holiday threads? After all a holiday is a waste on money, you could have stayed at home for less money.
I have enquired and been told this deal is no longer available!

Are you serious in suggesting a bicycle is a fit for purpose alternative to a car?

Anything above functional requirements is wasteful and excessive, that additional premium is widely referred to as "vanity tax".

I was merely defending the person who had stated that for a mere £300 more you could own the Panda.
Inquired and was told deal not available but I have had an annoying marketing email from them already this morning.

​Without knowing an individual's personal circumstances I can only suggest a bike or walking as much as buying a Panda. After all, if it's just them travelling a mile or two each day any vehicle is an extrangance and your statement hangs on spending the bare minimum to achieve a given goal. I still haven't heard of anyone using vanity tax as an actual saying. Perhaps my circle of friends aren't so hung up on such things and manage to live a little.

A conservative estimate would put the cost of the Panda at £2,500 over 2 years if taken on finance and sold at 2 years old.

This GTI costs £3,207.20 extra over two years - or £134 per month.

Let's say I earn £2,500 per month after pension contributions, have emergency savings of 6 months salary set aside and have "functional requirements" of £1,000 per month to cover mortgage, household bills and other non-discretionary spending. If, from the £1,500 per month excess income, I spend the additional £134 per month required for a GTI over a Panda, is this considered "wasteful and excessive"?
