Not for me, can't see the point of having a great car you can't drive anywhere. 5K miles per annum is the deal breaker.

Just to let you know, the car doesn't stop working if you go over 5k pa.

7.2p per mile is a very reasonable excess mileage charge. So if you want an extra 10,000 miles over 2 years, then you pay an extra £720 over the term (equivalent to an extra £30 per month).

Also VWFS may lower the cost to 3.6p if you phone partly through your agreement (they have in the past and continue to do so).

I have to agree, 5k miles is a deal breaker....if this had been 10k miles then it would be scorching, but as is, luke warm at best!

The only "deal breaker" was that this is the same price that what I got my R for...

I reckon the Skoda Fabia's are better value.

A Fabia is Polo sized though, I think, so not a direct alternative to a Golf.

Inc VAT? If so, what was was the monthly rentals and inital rental?

Because the cheapest Golf R hatchback on a personal lease has been £6.5k over the term - and that was without nav, no winter pack and no DSG. The R estates have been around £6.3k. No where near £5k...

I took this deal out and negotiated the terms. Didn't need sat nav or winter pack. Manual hatch.

Absolutely this! It's often cheaper to take a 5k lease than a 10k lease for this reason, and also gives you more flexibility.

Cracking deal OP, would be all over it if I hadn't just bought an ST.

So you're comparing your lease exc VAT vs. a personal lease inc VAT? Hardly comparable.

Very easy to set up a limited company and expense it through that.

Ta for that.

5k not enough otherwise good

Good deal but worth asking your local dealer to match
No fee and possibly lower monthly
Got my R from Corkills of Wigan (superb)
Plus with the added bonus you can go pick it up
Important : MUST ASK FOR FLEET DEPT normal sales dept don't even go there...

Can you tell me some more about how to get a reduction in the excess miles. I got my Audi A4 in may through Vw fs. I am well below miles but I will be increasing as I have just started a new job

Would you not have to pay BIK if you do it through limited company which would increase the costs?

No as I don't make it available for "private use" and the car is not a perk.

In the sense that it has no clutch pedal, yes. But not a true automatic.

Fairly sure it's illegal to set up a limited company just to dodge VAT. Setting up a company is easy and cheap, but that doesn't sound very legal to me.

Again - unless you want to be reported for defamation, please tell me how I am dodging VAT?

Yawn - lets keep this relevant to the actual deal...
