thanks andy. i'm living pretty rurally now and as i'd use the car pretty much every day for work and at the weekends for odds and ends so i'm not sure that would work? apologies if i'm misinterpreting.

basically, i want a new or as new car but don't want to buy one outright. i just figured as i'd do next to no miles, leasing might be the way to go. i might only be back in the uk for a couple of years, so i'm not particularly fussed about buying and having an asset, as it were, to sell should i head back overseas.

Cheers for this. How are you getting on with the Stable car? Got a quote going through at the moment, but they seem a little slow.

Just ordered a GLA from StableVehicles. Really couldn't fault their service. £237.50 a month, 24 month contract and 15k mileage. Pretty good deal imo.
