This one is a petrol model though, so you can pollute the environment with a clear conscience.

£7195 in total when you account for the (hefty) £360 admin fee.

Cheaper here: whatcar.com/car…598


£7104 over the same term AND an extra 3000 miles per year.

For an extra £71 you can just opt to pay 3 months upfront as opposed to 9.

That is a hell of a lot of car for the money, great deal if you need one.

I can vouch for these, I had insane deal on a Jag XF a few years ago from them. (posted it on here) Their name is funny, a lot easier to remember than some of the others.

Seems alot of car for the money

So tempted to swap my Auris hybrid for this and stuff the environment! I'd be more worried about the expensive payments on this than the environment though. Definitely got me thinking.

Never leased, so can someone tell me. Do you get back the initial rental? Is it essentially a deposit?

It'll be a lot of car to hand back at the end of the lease too , oh wait that'll be all of the car you hand back (just for clarity)

Still , cheaper than buying if you feel the need to have a brand new car every 2 years. Voted Hot for those this deal suits , unfortunately not for me though. For me the sums dont add up , my 6 yr old car depreciates much less than this and whilst it wont have that 'new car feel' , it is arguably a nicer place to be , oh and considerably quicker too , lol.

Yeah, like when you go on holiday and stay in an amazing place, then you have to hand it back after your two weeks stay..

No, the initial rental/deposit is a contribution towards the total leasing cost. Typically a higher initial deposit results in a lower total cost over the leasing term.

Much like buying a house via mortgage.

I've never actually been to anywhere that would tempt me to stay any longer than 2 weeks and I've been to a few lovely places (Florida was an exception and only as a one off mind , that stay was 4 weeks)
So no , not for me , coming home after a 2 week holiday I cannot compare to giving my car away, what can I say - i like my home (and car!)

Oof holidays, all that money and nothing to show for it after a few weeks apart from going home to a rusty car that needs an MOT. What a waste..

It's showing £276/month Inc vat. You sure you included that VAT?

This seems a pretty good deal at G2L. £7284 with 8k miles. So £1998 +£222 a month + £180 fees. All including VAT.

That's 9+23.

But I'm sure you can ask them for an adjustment to make it 3+23 if you wanna pay less upfront. I did the same with my Tiguan deal I got from them just over a month ago.

Why are you in this thread then?

Dr_Lovegod7 m ago

Is this the same as renting a house😃


No. You can live in a car, but you can't drive a house.

Also, houses don't normally depreciate. Also, everyone needs somewhere to live, not everyone needs a car.

Also, you know full well how a car lease works since you've posted a lease deal yourself. Stop trolling you bell-piece.

£222 @ 9+23

So how does this work if you get scratches and dinks in the car before you hand it back?

It’s ridiculous on these threads when people start arguing about leasing. Argue about the price of the lease sure but you know it’s a lease deal so why visit the thread if you don’t agree with it?

It’s simple there’s people who like a new car every few years but can’t afford to buy them outright and people who don’t care and are happy to drive an 8 year old skoda with no depreciation or monthly rentals like me

About £80 per panel for a very minor scratch or stone chip , £100 per scuffed wheel . That's a very conservative estimate . Of course there will always be those on here (in the leasing business?) who will tell you they have never been charged for scuffs or minor scratches - Yeah ! . Take your present car to "We buy any car .com" and see how their online valuation is swiftly devalued panel by panel ( for scuffs and scratches you never noticed ) and it will give you some idea of how it works . Of course you can attempt to avoid the wheel scuffs (you can tell a PCH car as its always parked a yard away from the kerb !) but avoiding stone chips ? Good Luck .

I've leased vehicles for myself, my family and my business for years and genuinely never received a single charge for any vehicle (and our staff have mistreated them at times)

This includes a dent in the door of a C Class my wife had, minor scuffed alloys on an employee's Octavia and a chipped paint on the edge of a door of my old A6.

If it was such a common problem people wouldn't a) repeatedly lease and b) you'd see thousands of complaints on review sites.

We were sent a PDF from the BVRLA with our last deal and it states:

Chips
Small areas of chipping, including door edge chipping are acceptable.
If the areas of chipping require the entire panel, bumper or trim to be
repaired or repainted, the damage is not acceptable.

Dents
Dents (up to 10mm) are acceptable provided there are no more than two (2)
per panel and the paint surface is not broken.
Dents on the roof or swage line on any panels are not acceptable.

Scratches
Scratches and abrasions up to 25mm are acceptable, relative to the
vehicle’s age and mileage, and provided the primer or bare metal is not
showing.

Charging for small, sometimes non existent dents and scuffs is last decades business model. Even a large scuff on a diamond cut alloy only cost me £30 on return the other month, it was nearer £200 to arrange repair myself.

Sadly you do see loads of complaints on review sites ,Which etc - they even make TV programmes about it ! The "guidelines" you quote are just that, guidelines from the leasers trade body (who many of these deal firms aren't members of anyway !) - they would say that wouldn't they .

Its not a brand new car for £200 ish a month as many may think - hence all the hot votes - from aspirational HUKD members , there's Gap insurance to factor in , hand over costs (they really want you to lease another one ) etc .

Contract Leasing is a good choice for some (business users with tax advantages particularly ) or PCH is OK for those who make a conscious decision to lease rather than buy (and are fully aware of the potential pitfalls ) - It is NOT for those who think "I can just about afford £220 a month and have a brand new car sitting in the drive " - that is why I suspect all these deals go inevitably hot , as many folks "aspire" to owning a new car and this makes it seem "affordable "

I was in the fortunate position to be able to afford a new BMW . I looked seriously into the options .

a) Buy it New .... BMW aren't particularly generous - only 10% -15% off for cash (some like Ford , Honda, Skoda or SEAT are 30% -40% if you go through car brokers ) .

b) PCH - No thank you -not for me

c) Buy a 6 month old one with 9k on the clock and 30 months BMW warranty remaining for 40% off new price

I think you can guess which one I went for

Each to his own - but my advice to those who think "I might just about be able to afford it " - DONT !

Go and look at the cost of buying one of these outright and running it for 2 years, then compare it to the cost of this lease.

That is the reason 'all these deals' go hot.

Check how much you could buy it for new from a car brokers, supplied by your local dealer (probably 15% -20% below List price ) then reconsider . If you are happy with that fair enough . I still maintain that the reason these deals inevitably go hot is folks think they are "attainable" , so aspiration without research kicks in .

Of course we have all read ,seen on tele how you can get a PCH deal with no job or a job with low or no guaranteed earnings etc so of course the thought of having a new car gets "Hot " votes .

I'm just the miserable, sensible git saying "Whoaah , think about it " - OK if you get a PCH by choice -fine - but if you get one as its the only way to get a new car - its definitely not for you .

Lots of the usual lease companies have this Arteon deal. Got mine from SelectCarLease few days back.
It's an amazing price for the fully loaded, large car you get.

Guess £35k posh Passat's don't sell well

As for those talking about their 10 yr old bangers that cost £5 a month.... Work harder, get paid more and enjoy the nicer things in life

So if you are so content with your leases (and are not in the business of leasing ) Why bother commenting ? At least you would grant that there are potential pitfalls for those who do not do their research ? Also for those who can't really afford it ?
