Found 6th Jun 2014
Well specked (see link for details), 4WD 5DR pocket rocket , may even return 40MPG
Base price for 5k p/a
I have gone for 8k p/a
Road tax included.
3+24 option also available.
6p/mile + VAT excess mileage
150+VAT arrangement fee
£250 GAP insurance if required

Administration fee now £300+VAT
Don't go for any other milage than 5k per annum. It is cheaper to pay the 7.2p (inc VAT) penalty for exceeding 5k than paying up front for 8k or more.
Avoid options if you can - they bump up the price disproportionately

not forgetting the £1,303 deposit...

Petrol costs must be a killer on this model.

whats wrong with this? do you get your deposit back?

No deposit back, after 2 years you return car to lease company.

Cheaper than the golf GTI to lease and what a car!!!

a hot deal but leasing isn't for me as I have to fund two cars at the same time but I wished I could go for this !!

Very good deal but i know someone who has ordered one and there is a 6 month waiting list?? there doesn't seem to be many of them about

Basically an s3 with a not so nice interior. Amazing deal

Tempted by this I have to say. You won't get anywhere near 40mpg though believe me. I've had a 2hour test drive in one. I reset the trip after having some fun to see if it was a daily driver contender, I managed 35mpg driving like a nun. I reckon on around 27mpg day to day.

My commute has gone from 45 miles a day to 2miles by bike so I reckon I might get this for a fun car for 2 years.

Behind the M135i, S3 and even the Megane RS for me as a drivers car you can use everyday. But it's a good price.

5000 miles a year, What's the point in having a great car and being restricted to that !

Ridiculous deal - Surely I'm missing something here, there's no way that the £6600 paid out over 2 years covers the depreciation on the car, even if it is only 10k miles, especially knowing full well that every single one of them is going to get absolutely rinsed in those 2 years.

This would make an awesome weekend toy for peanuts, and just about the time you get bored of it, give it back!

i dont understand these leases..

I want insurance included.. or no point..

Why not petrol as well?

if its personal lease its 247pm which is about 7200 for the two years without insurance and maintenance.

id rather buy a car.. as being young this car will probably cost 2-3k to insure making the deal unrealistic

15 weeks plus if you're ordering a manual. Even more for DSG. I think they said 20 weeks for that.

Bagged a 3 door manual at the start of the week with another company, slightly cheaper than this too although had a higher admin fee so might work out the same. That deal has gone now though.

This deal has been coming and going for a few months now. Stonking price, but 5k miles is quite stingy and a PPM over and above that is very high from my previous experiences.

Oh and this should be RFL for the full term, not just the 1st year as in the deal text. Mine is, and all the leasing companies are normally selling via the same funders and dealer networks so might want to double check that.

hey if I could get this car insured for £500 id be all over it

but the last time I insured a mk5 gti it was close to my uni grant lol

Seen 6p per mile excess mileage quoted elsewhere. If this is similar it's an absolute stonker of a deal on probably nearing a £30k list car

I've been quoted £400 for insurance

I have the S3 and all I can say is the engine is awesome! Both in power and very surprisingly economy 41.5 mph on motor run (60-70)!. Do it... heat for me.

Maybe the misleading title? No mention of the deposit, cost per month should include deposit etc

What do you think 6+23 stands for?

What do you think 6+23 stands for?


You know I'm right mate

6ppm + VAT excess mileage. I've been looking at this deal all week. It's cheaper to take the 5k deal and run the excess. As I currently have a VW on lease, due to go back in September, I get the first service on the next car for free, which helps. £320 a year to insure for me.

Excel figures below which don't' format well, but basically the real monthly cost, amortised over the lease period is £322.52 if you take the 6+23 on 5k terms with 6p+VAT / miles excess and cover 20k miles over the term.

I've been quoted September delivery, which suits me. This price for any colour you like as long as it's red.

Well that's a matter of opinion. I don't much fancy driving the BMW In the wet, and I simply wouldn't own a Renault, leased or otherwise.

That's very interesting- is that proper conservative driving- cruise control on at 60 -70 on a run? - I can live with something starting with a 4. What are you seeing for shorter journey town driving please m8?
Edited by: "barbiegirl" 7th Jun 2014

I'm in...

40mpg is not realistic. My mate popped over the other day in his. The journey was dual carriageway all the way for 15 miles. Ave mpg 27...

Yep we have had ours for a while now and average mpg is around 25-26, you would be lucky to get 30-32 on a sensible run and can easily drop to single figures if you give it some!! Don't expect to get fuel economy if you have an 'R' but for fun and great AWD performance you can't go wrong

That's exactly what it is. I had a test drive in one of these and it drove exactly the same as my mate's S3 which has a beautiful interior, but the Audi's suspension feels harder even though it's dropped the same. You'll get about 28mpg around the doors if you have a little fun, about 38mpg cruising at 80mph on the motorway and and about 20mpg around the doors if you have a lot of fun. My Golf GTD with tuning box to 243ps feels pretty good (50mpg around the doors, 57mpg on the motorway), but 300ps and haldex 4wd is so much fun.

Leasing deal that is significantly cheaper than the depreciation on a bought one is hot in my book. The MK7 is very well equipped as standard and the ride is surprisingly compliant on sports suspension and 18" rubber.

S3 likely to be my next car. Love that interior and the performance. Has to be 3 door though. I have a 5 door MK7 GTD right now, but not a fan of the estate looks of the Audi 5 door sportback.

Well very conflicting reports here already - single figures ? What are you doing 0-60-0 repeatedly? Remember that from 60mph to 85 mph fuel consumption increases by 25% due to the fluid dynamics of air resistance, so 40mpg at 60 becomes 30mpg at 85.

"30-32 on a sensible run" is very poor - I know V8's that do better than that. I've got an AMG that's 12 years old that'll do 30+ on a run. Can't reconcile that with new engine tech. Must be down to your driving style (aggressive!)

S3 is nice but I prefer the look of the Golf, never liked the A3/S3 shape, the new shape is the best so far though. I have a MK6 1.4 TSI Golf, seriously tempted by this. My weekend toy is a Mitsubishi FTO cracking car, this is faster, couldn't sack the FTO ever.though.

I'd completely disagree with you there. The Golf is the standard as the all-rounder. Well equipped, well made (for these days standards, not as solid as a MK2 Golf), looks better than either (most will admit the BMW 1 is ugly as sin, even 1 series owners) handles beautifully on the new MQB platform, engine responds well yet can be surprisingly economical (relative to its output), 4 wheel drive, has a better interior than either of those 2 (BMW does have better seats) and is the epitome of practicality. M135i is amazing to drive in the dry but is very poor on practicality for a car of it's size - ever tried sitting in the back of one if you're not a kid? The Megane is a little behind and will be expensive to own or lease because of the massive depreciation. BMW depreciation is disappointing these days, making them relatively expensive to lease or own over a few years.

Live with the BMW every day? Nope, it's as practical as an Audi TT coupe when you've got 4 adults to transport. It is basically an S3 with a slightly less plush interior (the S3 has by far the nicest interior of all cars you've mentioned, the Golf is second in the interior stakes).
