^ not too sure.

Possibly an Aston Martin but not in a hurry as I'm out of the country quite a lot these days and have no need for a car at present

Price based on solid white or black.
Delivery in September.
10k miles p/a
This deal has a charge of 9.6ppm for going over allowance.
£261.23 per month inc fees and advance rental:
((9+23) x £190.30) + £180 = £6,269.60 or £261.23/net/month.

For a 30k list price car this is got to be one of the cheapest deals to lease it

This seems like a good deal, yes?

Anyone dealt with this company or have any other tips?

Follow this thread, had my previous two leases from following it. Currently got a Scirroco R for dirt cheap. Also try and keep leases to 24 months, misses out on the expensive 3 year service etc..

If you see a really good deal, apply immediately as usually limited stock.

Is buying a diesel now a bad idea? I want to buy a used golf and was looking at a 1.6l or 2.0l Tdi but people are telling me to steer clear because of this impending government crackdown on diesels.

I did 20k miles last year mostly on the motorway so it makes sense re mpg, don't want to end up with a car that's worth fuck all in 2 years time though. Anyone that knows what they're talking about give me advice? I know fuck all about cars

I would have thought there will be some kind of Diesel scrapage scheme when they eventually sort out if they are going to up taxes etc on them.
As long as your not spending loads on it you should get £2k+ back for it in 2-3 years which might be what its worth anyway?

Ended up going for the new Audi A5 2.0 TFSI S Line from Select Car Leasing. Really happy with this deal. Recommended.

£913 + 23 x £304.

Wish I could have stretched myself to the S5 though Sad

Anyone doing PCP and arranged it through a broker rather than a dealership?

If so, where did you source your PCP finance deal? I'm in touch with buyacar but their response leaves a lot to be desired: slow and cavalier.

Going on a roadtrip in the beginning of September to drive in mates new car. Shipping the cars over to Travemunde in Germany and thinking of going to these places (3000km and 10days):

Travemunde - Hamburg - Stuttgart - Innsbruck - Milan - Nice - Geneve - Frankfurt - Nurburgring

Any suggestions on the way or must see places?
