    Best guy I found through Leasing. Com and both my mate and I have got A35s from him.

    He generally beats not just price but can get availability.

    The availability is limited until March I think. There is a few builds being delivered but not see a demonstrator yet.

    Ye I know, was just saying you can work out how much one would be to lease.

    Sign up to a few leasing sites. You generally find if one is doing them on offer they all are. Once you know they are on offer shop around and play one off the other. Did this with my Golf R and the Mrs’s current A35.

    We ended up with an A35 premium with metallic paint and some sort of phone pack. Our deal was £2k down and £330 am month (knocked them down from £350) but only 6k miles as the mrs doesn’t do many. That’s a 4 year deal in a stock car. The company we used was Balgores leasing, but used central UK vehicle leasing a few times as well as direct through manufacturers so avoid admin fee.

    In comparison i hammered a few local dealers for a pcp. The same Car was costing £406 a month with £3k down. Leasing was a no brainer.

    But for those who’ll buy another new car in a few years time anyway, then that doesn’t really matter: had they bought the car in cash then the same value would have disappeared in depreciation during the same period of time.

    I wouldn’t agree that leasing is madness, but it would be difficult to argue that buying new cars is anything but madness! It’s an expensive business!

    I would very much suggest "Selectcarleasing" they also have the A45 if you are interested. Rubin Ball is the man you want!

    leasing might work...until your circumstances change...such as change of job/annual mileage, new family member, loss of job...


    It is madness to tie debt to the "asset", and I use that term lightly - finance it separately, then you own it, you an modify it, you can sell it,


    If you can't afford it, don't buy it. Too many people in this country are living a debt filled fantasy. I might be boring but id rather stick £30k in my pension and retire 10 years earlier.

    Still at least we have the choice...

    Provided the asset is still worth more than the money you owe on it.

    If you lose £15k in depreciation over 3 years on a £30k car, and leasing it for that same terms would have cost you £12k, then you're £3k down.

    Of course, you can keep it longer to allow the depreciation curve to claw that back, but what if you don't want to? Having a new car under warranty means a certain amount of peace of mind, if something goes wrong it's not your problem - that has a lot of value to a lot of people, who generally also aren't too worried about wanting to modify their car.

    You are missing the point - buying for cash ( albeit funded from a separate loan) means you own something - renting gives you nothing but a dream and a poor credit rating

    The way the market is going are going, the cars are invariably worth less than the GFV meaning you have NO EQUITY at the end of the term.

    Your example figured are flawed as the deal illustrated costs c£29k over 3 years with no residual value.

    Other PCP deals maybe better but there are multiple posts here by people who want to mess with their AMG, with all the risk and complication that entails.

    It’s your money- I will enjoy my early retirement

    So you are right. My GTD lease cost me less to own than a purchase. I will explain.

    When I got the GTD the amount I paid per month over the 3 years plus the final payment to buy it was in total less than I would have cost me to buy the car myself and finance it (or if bought cash the lost interest on the savings).

    How? The lease company buys in bulk so higher discount than the lay man could achieve and the same goes for the finance. Then the final payment reflected the market price which was probably depressed with loads of them coming off lease.

    It wasnt a massive saving but circa £2-3k. Which was 10%.

    Im hoping the same goes for the A35. I will probably buy it at the end. My nephew will be driving by then and he fancies it. Will make a great 2nd car for him (once he has a years no claims).

    Am I? What's the point in owning something that is worth less than the monetary value you have laid out for it? Why would it give you a poor credit rating, provided you keep to your end of the agreement?

    Leasing has no GFV, and it is leasing that the recent posts have been discussing. PCP terms are always worse than leasing because you're paying upfront for the option to keep the car at the end.
