Personal lease £618/month with 3x£618 deposit = £16686 over 2 years. How much are these likely to depreciate in that time if you bought a new one? Low mileage 2010 cars seem to be < £40k on PH.
I expect this has been discussed a few times :)
17 sounds lower than I'd want. Low-mid 20s I could deal with. When were 4matics from? Sorry, I know nothing about MLs really. I walk past one each day on the way to the station (a 270 iirc) and they seem to fit the bill of high up and not too big (for wife) and with a V8 rumble (for me :) )

v8 warbling, wafty, family transport goodness or a likely complete money pit that's only held together by it's paint and dodgy coloured leather?
(I almost actually quite like the colour combo!)
*Not that I'm looking to buy something until the end of the year, but...
I've just put these up there. May be of interest.

Two slightly worn Pirellis but maybe of use to someone.

Tempted to join the fun if there's room somewhere for me to come along as a passenger. Probably not worth it in my Fiesta (or as per the Goodwood trackday thread, maybe I could see if an i10 can hit 100!)
Thanks to Simon M for the PM reminder. Unfortunately I won't be able to make it in 2012, due to a lack of a track car and also the date being my wife's birthday. Hey - unless I send her someone for some pampering... and take her Hyundai i10 onto the track at Goodwood :D
I'll echo Will's...
Not having looked at any leasing web sites, 3k down and 220/month doesn't sound much so could be good for a C250. How much are they nearly new? Then I'd look at what they might be worth after 3 years and compare that to the 13k balloon.
Other thoughts.... how much are...
