Decent spec on this SUV with 8,000 miles a year. No admin fee. Thanks to m5rcc for this lower price. The tyres will last the term of the lease. Link to review here.

I am sure it will be sufficient to get places. But it is pretty weak, considering bhps are pretty cheap these days.

83bhp is pathetic for a car this size, I have a small hatchback with 99bhp and it feels lacking at times.

paypeanuts

That's very helpful - thanks. Definitely food for thought. When you start to add up these 'hidden' costs it can often turn a good deal into a not-so-good deal, and vice versa.

Zuulan

Hi Mr Nuts Just to point out the difference between 42mpg and 32mpg. The difference in fuel would be 542 litres if you did the full 16,000 miles which at £1.15 equals an extra £623 over the 2 years or £26 a month. Might be worth it???

Grahamdue

So you've got £6k of depreciation, road tax to pay for years 2 & 3 and then how do you finance the additional £17k you pay up-front? That's easily £1- 1.5k in interest if you can afford to repay over 5 years. And then when you come to sell, there's another new model out meaning yours is worth even less! Lease deals suit those who are happy to work within the restrictions and enjoy fixed cost motoring.

Dantooine

Thought so (lol)

adsthompson

You can only drive it in a wig and heels or the immobiliser kicks in

audievo

I think the kuga is being reworked, as is the audi q3, as is the evoque. Hence big discounts. Not sure it's worth it unless you want to keep the car for a good while as your resale will be that much lower as it is an old model as soon as you buy it

twoquidkev

Wow, I stand corrected lol, although I notice the List price is about £700 out from Ford's website configurator which would be cause for concern, have you bought through this website/company before how were they? and also no metallic paint which is a further £570 extra

Well that is how Britain survives: on the basis of fake wealth created by ridiculously high prime London property prices fed by foreign investment of dirty money without any effective control, keeping Britain just about afloat. That's also why people who would never previously have dreamed of owning a £50k Audi are driving them on £650/mth PCPs. No skin off my teeth. Just stating the purpose of cancellation is not for self-benefit or getting one over the dealer and/or manufacturer.

Nothing to do with capitalism. You could buy a used car but then you are not comparing like-for-like. This calculator could give you an impression of the future residual value of a car, adjusted for age and mileage.

My first lease was a business lease as a sole trader and I was not allowed to buy the car my last lease was personal and I was given a purchase option, both direct with VW so maybe that is the difference?

pgilc1

It isnt a GT86 replacement, its is the Toyota Supra replacement. The Toyota variant will be a coupe, not a folding tin top. The Z4 will have a cloth roof for weight reasons, the last Z4 was criticised for its weight and lack of agility - the new Z4 is being pitched against the Boxster so it needs to up its game on those fronts.

steve_bezerker

A 24 month lease for 7k is a joke frankly. Especially when you putting nearly 1k down as a first payment. After the 24 months is up, you'll have to drop another big down payment on your next car so you're bleeding £500 a year in just fees before you even get the car.

That’s funny, it’s almost like you’re assuming only poor people would choose to shop at Aldi or Lidl.

It amazes me how many audi, merc and bmw drivers shop in aldi, lidl. I suppose woth pcp and leasing it lets the masses think they are rich lol. With some of the payments I see ints no wonder they try and save money everywhere else. Nothing wrong with aldi and lidl though.

Whilst I agree the deal is poor, the car is OK. Never been into Audi as a brand but had one of these for a few weeks in Spain last month and it was actually pretty good. Fun to drive and quick enough for what it is. In spite of what people say I don't think it is as good inside as a BMW but it was fine enough.

The Volvo V90 deal that I posted on here a few months ago. It's expired now unfortunately

jordanp68

If you don't mind me asking what car do you have, what was the deposit, how much are the monthly payments? Currently looking into leasing a car.

abuhaneefahali

I'm paying £7250+ over 2 years. This year was £3620, next year prices will almost certainly rise. My point was that I pay more for my season ticket than my car and still have nothing to show for it. I commute about the same in the car as I do on the train 11k to 14k per year. I work in London and make weekend trips to Leicester and back to get my kids. Okay the Car price doesn't include fuel so technically a bit more expensive.

SFconvert

Surely your fuel costs would be pretty high (I'm assuming it's a long commute if your season ticket is £7250.) Also that's a lot of miles (so extra maintenance) and would it also take a lot longer than the train? I suppose foregoing parking at a station would offset some of that cost though.

Mr.No

I paid a £3,000 initial rental (no such thing as a deposit with contract hire) for my Jaguar XF 3.0 V6 Supercharged S 3 years ago. Unless my memory is failing, I'm pretty sure they didn't cost £6,000 brand new.

I was basing it on 2 sets of tyre changes in 12 years. Hardly unreasonable! If anything, most people will need to change tyres much more often than that due to mileage or unfixable punctures.

ktm666

Only 1 set of tyres over 12 years?? :o You went joking when you said low mileage! It would have probably been cheaper for you to just get a taxi for each journey at that rate! Or just walked.....

BungalowBill

I just bought 4 Goodyears for my wife's Citroen for 65 quid each, total £260 - so where do you get the idea that 'even the cheapest tyres would set you back £350'? And she has managed 6 years on the last set so I am sure 12 years with only one tyre change is not impossible.

Aliwoo18

Bear in mind the quoted survey results do mention in the intro that (whilst the reported "problems" are weighted according to severity/inconvenience), a lot of the problems stem from ever-evolving in car technologies (including issues like bluetooth connectivity or secondary electronic problems) so appearing at in the bottom half of the table doesn't necessarily mean the vehicle is going to break down. The Mini we had on lease had one "problem" when we had it (so would fall into the problem statistics) but it had absolutely zero impact on it's use (I can't even remember exactly what it was, but it just meant they had it for 15 minutes longer at service time to do a software patch). As someone pointed out, you have VW/Audi and Seat/Skoda at opposing ends (despite the fact that many of the mechanical components are going to be the same), and you also have Citroen and Peugeot in both camps when they definitely share masses of parts - I'm genuinely curious as to whether this is related to fussiness of owners, brand specific parts failing (ie trim or bodywork) or whatever else that causes such a big difference?

Staggered the OP hasn't called this a megathread yet...

margamboy

Are my eyes deceiving me or i have just read that a fiesta 1.1 will cost more than £5k to rent for 2 years and restricted to 8k miles per annum. Forget the buy v rent argument anyone who goes for that deal needs their head read, it's common knowledge that Ford mark up their vehicles 20% over to allow for discount, I would hazard a guess without looking into this I could buy that same vehicle new for £12k and 6 months old less than £10k at auction.

Regprentice

At 4 years most cars will have lost more than 50% of their initial value. The repayments on a 3-4 year lease will typically be over half the value of the car, so you will have paid the same if not more than the sticker price of the 3 or 4 year old car on a forecourt. Just because the monthly looks affordable doesn't mean it doesn't add up to a large amount. According to the AA Typically the rate of depreciation slows with age Year one A new car loses value as soon as you drive off the forecourt and by the end of the first year will have lost around 40% of its value. This varies a lot though and the best may lose as little as 10%. Year three If you do 10,000 miles a year, the average car will have lost around 60% of its value by the end of its third year.

Hi was looking at the C63 coupe myself, going through a broker, i.e drivethedeal or orangewheels you can get 9k off the car and the GTFV of the car is set quite low so by my maths it would cost with 2500 deposit and 725 a month for 4 years but would have around 8-11k in equity at the end of the deal. That was PCP though.

m5rcc

I chose cabriolet on the original list, just doesn't reveal cabriolet on the title. Either way, it's dear. But to be expected from a performance car. They're not going to give it away.

RUGAAL

Well, its 54k outright as interest adds another 4-5k over 2 years. so yeah, not sure about the deal. Link you showed is saloon, not cbsriot btw, but yeah roughly 28% seems to be the percentage of rrp

m5rcc

Now sounds even worse. This car would only have a residual value of £35,275 after two years and 20k on the clock, which is more than the balloon itself, let alone the £21k already paid for the lease. So if you want to pay £59k to own a two year old car, by all means go ahead. I don't think paying 29% of cost to lease is a good deal, but yes, it's been offered to you at a cheaper price than other places.

RUGAAL

It was based on 2 years and option to buy it for 38k in the end if I wish. works out around 21k paid in 2 years (inc deposit

Again 4 years on a lease is too long but further down the link supplied is 10K miles/pa on 24 months for a lower deposit at £593.25 and 23 months at £197.75.

If only it was a diesel at that price, I had one from the garage as a courtesy car and quite liked it to drive.

For the purposes of this post, I would say you should spell out your example. Demonstrate that you can find a similar car, that is a few years old for £7k plus what additional costs there would be over 3 years and 24k miles. There some known ones like MOT and Road Tax, plus at least one major service (possibly involving cambelt). Purchase method might include cost of interest to be added. Reasonable assumption around additional maintenance or repairs. Finally, what oculd you easily expect to sell it for (or value it a) after those 3 years and 24k miles. Granted you may keep it longer than 3yrs and the rate of depreciation tails off, but it's the closest you're going to get to a direct comparison for a lase vs buy 2nd hand - although by virtue of it being a 2nd hand, older car, it's not really comparable.

loofer

in fairness, i switched to leasing (after always buying £2.5-£4k 2nd hand cars and keeping for 5 years) by reading these deal threads. I now lease. The obvious advantage for e has been reliability in the car as I was often paying for repairs and extra maintenence, which can be expected for a car over 10 years old. i'm approaching the end of my first lease in Oct. I was lucky to get a very good deal. Would I consider leasing again? it depends on the experience of handing to back and how nit picky they are. I know Iv'e got a few repairs to do to body work but as mentioned above, I'm consciously thinking about mileage as I approach my last 6 months and the fair wear & tear is a bit of an unkown, even with the BVRLA guide. I may consider buying 2nd hand but upping y budget to £6-£7k and banging that on my credit card (2 years interest free) if a dealer accepts CC payment with no additional charge. Back to the original point, even if constantly repeated arguments, it's a good place to have them. Helps many people as it helped me understand

loofer

that's my thought too. Usually I would find the best deal available elsewhere then ask a few dealers to see if they could mach the payments, less the processing fee.£300 is quite hefty fee for a dealer. I would expect it to be £180 max, if not zero.

Yeah the new 3008. It looks great in the brochure but once you're actually in one the interior, although smartly designed is very cheaply built considering the price of the car. I thought the Qashqai drove nicer too. Merc threw a £7000 deposit contribution into my deal so maybe I got lucky!

Thanks, is Black Edition better/worse than S Line? EDIT: better than S Line. Blurb below in addition to S Line It guarantees stand-out appeal through 19-inch five-arm rotor alloy wheels in a matt titanium finish (or the no-cost option of 18-inch 10 Y-spoke gloss black alloys), complemented by a titanium black styling pack which extends to the mirror housings, singleframe grille and window surrounds, side skirts, rear spoiler (fitted to the Saloon) and air intakes. Black roof rails also complement these accents in Avant models, and in both body styles privacy glass is added for the rear windows. Another Black Edition benefit that is less immediately obvious is the inclusion of acoustic front side window glass to further refine the already remarkably hushed A4 cabin environment.

It didnt destroy sales thought did it? In fact, quite the reverse. Which - correct me if i'm wrong here - is kind of what a motor manufacturer wants to do? You cant please all of the people all of the time after all. Say what you like about bangle era cars but they were a lot more distinctive than the bland blobs they're now making. The new 5 series in particular is rather dull compared to the e60 in its day. The z4 was certainly never going to win any beauty contests, but i never considered it "ugly". We'd a 3.0Si Sport Coupe at one point and its one of the few cars we regret selling and i'd love another tucked up in the garage as they're now starting to appreciate. I'd no particular issue with most of Bangles designs that made it to production. The earliest 7 series looked a bit harsh but that was quickly facelifted. The 3 and 5 series E46 / E90 and E60 i thought looked well, at least in M Sport trim levels. But each to their own. Styling is subjective. "As for your 'lightly modded' MINI - good luck with that warranty! I'd say your comments in this thread show a high degree of knowledge - but a poor level of judgement. Just my opinion, of course!" Its a plug in tuning box and a performance air filter element taking it to around 235BHP ish. All plug and play stuff that can be removed in a matter of minutes. Nothing i havent done for a couple of decades on various cars and have had no issues. Its not the first modded F56 MINI out there and i'm sure it wont be the last. And to be very frank, if i decide to mod on at it - 290BHP can be easily reached - and i blow the engine out of it then i'll suck it up. I'm a big boy now. :) And i dont get where all this hand wringing is coming from RE the reliability of the F56. Theres many dedicated forums for BMW MINIs and the F56 is leaps and bounds ahead of the R56 and R53 in terms of quality, reliability and tuning capability. I guess its just people operating on hearsay when they dont know the product. Very surprised at the veiled snide comments BTW which should be beneath people on here, but clearly not. I think that speaks volumes about the individuals involved. Just my opinion, of course!

Z4 is probably the worst example of American Chris Bangle's 'flame surface' styling, which took decades of carefully developed BMW 'understated elegance' and destroyed it. BMW styling post bangle is widely considered to be, at best, disappointing. They make some very good cars (quality and reliability aside) but a growing number of howlers too. The badge will overcome a lot for a while but not forever. As for your 'lightly modded' MINI - good luck with that warranty! I'd say your comments in this thread show a high degree of knowledge - but a poor level of judgement. Just my opinion, of course! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_Bangle

Maybe not for everyone but I think this is a great price for a V40 with 8000 and only on a 2 year. Haven't yet managed to find out if it has the normal admin fee. Will update if I… Read more

I like Evo personally but it's down to preference. Pop into a newsagent/supermarket and have a look!

Which car journals would you recommend

Possibly but my last two cars, honda civic and audi a3 both did 100k with no issues. Clutch went bang whilst downshifting from 3rd to 2nd at about 15mph so hardly being stressed and that was after 3k miles. The other two breakdowns were sensor failures. Also the auto braking function has a habit of slamming on whilst driving through town and someone is a bit close to the pavement. If I get to the end of the lease without being rear ended itll be a miracle.

I think this is pretty much the standard price for this car. It has been available for cheaper previously https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/volvo-v40-hatchback-t2-122-momentum-5dr-2-year-lease-8k-miles-per-annum-138pm-828-initial-rental-4002-total-what-car-magazine-2823183#comment-32380535

Try driving one before you smash it to bits (y)

Good point. I think it’s important to have a universal benchmark and 0-60 has worked well for a number of years. But just like MPG, however, we need to move towards real life standards. People rarely do a 0-60 sprint. In gear acccelaration may be more apt

A few years ago me and my mate had whatever cars, and there was only 0.5 seconds between them on the 0-60mph. His car had more BHP and was faster accelerating than mine, but he had to change up to 3rd gear to get to 60mph (it topped out at about 58mph as I recall) where as mine would make it in 2nd, hence the narrow margin. If the measure had been 0-50mph, he'd have been markedly faster. So you can't just go on 0-60mph times.

Depends on your definition of nippy I guess. If you're used to driving low powered, slow, poor handling cars I suppose you may find this nippy. Surely you don't believe this is "very fast" from 0-30?!
