VW Golf R 5dr BUSINESS DEAL 10k £165+VAT, £1485+VAT upfront @ nationalvehiclesolutions.

126
Found 26th Sep 2014
EDIT - This deal has now expired, gone up to £170+VAT and £1500+VAT upfront. Still good, just not as good as last week.

Deal is back, and looks better than before.

This is for business customers only. Total cost of lease inc fees is £5479 + VAT

Apparently near 40mpg (more likely 30-35), 0-60 5.3s, adaptive cruise control, touchscreen multimedia system and a sort-of-4wheel drive system

£1485+VAT upfront, and then 23x £165+VAT and £199+VAT doc fee, making total £5479+VAT (avr £228.29 + VAT / Month)

10000 miles allowance

EDIT

If you want metallic paint, the cost is bumped up to £180 + VAT and £1620 + VAT upfront so works out at £480+VAT more. I also asked them about how much the DSG box would be but they're not responded (looks like an automated email)

Okay, this is HOT!

Are there options for extra miles/year? Do I have to be VAT registered to get this deal as a ltd company? I'm looking into lease cars for the future, car ownership isn't such a great idea if lease cars don't need servicing by yourself etc

Don't think you'll need to be VAT registered, but obviously you won't be able to claim 50% of the VAT back.

Have dropped them an email asking about mileage costs and options (quite fancy the dsg box). Never been a fan of VW's but this looks like a cracking car. I'm guessing it will be a Jan delivery based on last thread.

£2593 up front and £288.12 pm for personal lease though

Can anyone explain to me why personal terms are so much more expensive? It's clearly a lot more than just the VAT making up the difference!

Probably that business customers get less protection in deals like this than private and therefore they are trying to deter people from taking up the deal outside of businesses. At the end of the day companies are less likely to complain as much as a private individual too.

It goes up sharply if you choose a more realistic (in most cases) 12,000 a year
£165.00 -> £250.39/month with £2,253.51 upfront.

And oddly 5000miles/year is £215/month and 8000 is £230.42 so you'd better hit that 10,000

Not saying it's bad deal, just depends on how you use the car.

This deal is not for poor people. Its designed for the middle class that are heading in the direction of being poor due to having far to much credit. However it is also designed for people who have the spare change but do not want to commit to buying a car forever

Good Morning

Only the manual is a supported unit at present

Please download a brochure for the options extra costs and divide over the term of contract to work out monthly cost

Excess mileage is 6p+vat per mile

Please refer to the brochure for service intervals

-------

Sales guy not the most helpful person I've ever spoken to, almost seems taking out a lease will be an inconvenience to him

Do these lease deals have a balloon payment at the end with the option to buy, some companies are now offering this as if the car at end of lease is in better condition or lower mileage you will build up equity to cashout or transfer over to your next lease.

Asked Simon outright if it needs one or two services - ie does it need one immediately before handing it back, as its is 24 months or 20k whichever comes first.
This was his reply

I believe it is an intelligent unit that takes various things into consideration if the light is on the service would be due or there would be a recharge if the service was not carried out

Doesn't exactly answer my question (again), but if service light comes on I doubt its nothing a laptop and a cable can't sort. TBH his deliberate vagueness is putting me off from going for this.

The DSG gearbox is available on this model!

If you qualify as a sole trader you should DEFINITELY go with this. This is a crazy cheap deal.

When you order a Golf R you can opt for the servicing to be set to incremental (every 10k miles / 1 year) or variable - in which case the car tells you when it needs a service. It seems that variable servicing tends to demand a service around 15k miles. So, if you don't do over the 20k miles you'll only need to get one service either way. But I'm having mine set to variable. You never know, I might not even need one!!

Brokers (like Simon) can't be experts on every car - I'm surprised he knew anything about servicing. He is merely putting you in touch with a dealer and a funder who will provide you with the advertised offer (for his admin fee).

I posted that the focus is £99 on a business lease and it went cold... you people are sick

How this is cheaper? Is't he going to pay Class 1A NIC and personal tax ~ 20% ? I am asking because I am not sure.

What he told you is correct. It uses a large number of sensors across the car to read when servicing is needed, driving style can affect this massively. If you try and trick it into thinking it's had a service and get caught they're likely to hammer you with penalties.

I would go for this to replace my MK6 Golf but I've just seen what 2nd hand Merc CLS 350s are going for, so sorry Golf R you might be faster but you're boring

Boring fact time - DSG version drops the 0 to 60 time to 4.9 seconds. The world has gone mad.

tempting !!!

The only way you'll see 40mpg out of this is if you push it out of the back of a plane ;0

35 is probably fantasy unless you spend your life at 60 on the motorway - which no-one is going to do in this thing either.

25 - 25 is the number you probably want to get-used-to ;0

Sweet ride... I hope you are all going to get one so that I can buy one of the used ones in a couple of years.

But he has answered your question. If the service is due it will be indicated on the dashboard and should be done. If the service is not needed then no light will be on and you will not need to service it. Your comment loses all integrity when you mention you would try to trick them by resetting the light yourself...

I like Golfs but I have this problem with VAG that despite the undeniable quality of their products, sometimes they do just seem....boring. Dull. This car should be a little bit lairier and a little bit more wild, cheeky, naughty. It's a 300bhp hatch for crying out loud!

Instead it's VERY understated of course. Very grey. Maybe a contrasting colour line on the grille or the flanks. A slightly more obvious rear wing or slightly bulged arches. You get inside and where are the nice showy colourful 'R' inserts scattered about (they wouldn't be grey would they?) Maybe some razmatazz seat piping, stitching or air vent surrounds?

I'm not talking turning it into something ridiculously blingy or in your face, but just things to make the car stand out, sporty, fun, and be a bit more special.

You can feel how serious this car is. You can just see the twenty meetings many very serious bespectacled Germans sat in to decide which two shades of grey the gear knob should be. They looked at the Focus RS (another 300bhp hatch) and said whoa there, that's far too bonkers. It looks far too exciting for our customers. They might have a heart attack should they see and drive a VW that raises the pulse and looks as foaming-at-the-mouth loony as that. If that happens they might sue us.

Cars great BTW. Ignore my moaning.

Just go on autotrader and select Price: Low-High and Distance: within 20 miles

lol I had a merc 350 cls as a hire car whilst my new car was being repaired after a blind moron drove into it at low speed

honestly one of the worst cars ive ever driven and ive driven loads. slow, awful old fashioned lazy auto box that took years to change gear, long bonnet so a nightmare to park, felt like I was in the middle of a barge, awful bouncy suspension, terrible dated looking dash and interior. it looked ok but was not worth £45K. it was new but felt old

merc a class was also awful. however their new b class is nice to drive - except the hideous stuck on fisher price lcd screen

id take the golf r any day

RUBBISH!! proves you know zero about cars - same engine and box as the s3 - got 41.4 out of my s3 sportback and regularly over 40mpg. Average is 36mpg. even if I left mine in dynamic mode and drove like a nutter (which I don't) id struggle to get 25mpg

Edited by: "royals" 1st Oct 2014

I have one of these asa company car there nice cars

As fr the mpg claim I get city driving 45 mph but there rated for upto 72mpg motorway driving of course.

It is worth pointing out that you would get hammered by the taxmax man if you used the car for personal use.

vw servicing absolute sht. last time i used them they used a full tank of fuel and wasted 3k of my money only to return me a non working car on a trailer. that being said hot deal. Low cost

How in the world did you manage to get a Merc 350 hire car? Every accident repair hire car I have seen has been a bottom of the range supermini, no matter what class of car was damaged!

Agreed - Im sure the designers at VW have just gotten very lazy. The interior hasn't changed much for 3 generations and like all German cars - its very 'Business' orientated IMO. The Germans dont seem to understand the 'Fun' Factor in cars. Dont get me wrong, they are fairly well screwed together and serve their purpose well, but i agree, like most of the cars in the VAG range - they are just dull to look at.
