Only other thing to consider is PCP, it’s often cheaper these days.

Most lease companies have a document that identifies acceptable fair wear …Most lease companies have a document that identifies acceptable fair wear and tear on vehicle return, and make the doc available prior to the start of the hire.

Well I went to vospers (ford dealer) but the agreement is with ford credit (direct) and is on a new car of my choosing. Payments easy, basically your paying depreciation based on your estimated mileage in one of 3 bands. 12k, 18k and 25k (which band you choose will determine the payments as well as the car you choose).

Obviously with PCP your responsible for servicing etc, but my agreement runs for 36 months and I can hand the car back at the end and take another new one (new agreement) or buy out the car by paying the residual value (cash price - payments over 36 months = value to pay).

I’m doing the 18k option and am literally doing about 18k per year, only expecting servicing costs and perhaps tyres and a set of brake pads in terms of costs over 36 months so not much cost really. I went for a focus titanium, metallic paint etc.

I looked at the lease option at the time and found it was £50-75 a month more for a lesser spec vehicle.
