    Hmm I remain very doubtful about PPI payouts driving that, because I have seen the same trotted out by companies in other industries to support their projected sales growth figures.

    Appears to be BS bandwagon of the month.

    Totally agree and a great phrase to sum it up "BS bandwagon of the month" :thumb:

    I reckon it is because many owners who were going to buy a new car in spring held off because it was the '13' plate.

    looking at the chart there, I am frankly surprised the Mercedes trailing behind Audi and BMWs, despite cracking good finance/lease deals :confused:

    Great.

    Leasing a Mercedes should get cheaper.
