My colleague leases his cars. He is not an enthusiast and he is not particularly careful. He has very little trouble at all come hand back time: maybe a £500 bill which is nothing in the scheme of things. I would have thought that the best way to smooth the hand back process is to couple it with the delivery of a new one!

Just to add I noticed that MB's advertised deals are up until 30th September. It will be interesting to see what deals the brokers have in the last week of this month.

I goy my CLK in the last week of March a few years ago, there was a cracking deal to be done at the time (although this was when the arse had fallen out of the car market in 2009 so that may have helped!)

They always end at the end of each quarter. You've got to take a car from stock to be sure of getting the deal.

Used a company called applied leasing. Only one I could track down with a stock car I fancied.

6+23 £356.39 inc vat for the e-class cab sport 220cdi
how do they factor in any optional extras?

also what is the difference between leasing and PCP where you return the car and walk away?

Nothing, if you do walk away at the end.

PCP is you buying the car, however the residual value is deferred to the end of the agreement.
You either pay the agreed balloon figure and keep the car, sell the car and pocket the difference, or if the car is worth less you hand it back and walk away.
This is the reason to keep the deposit as small as possible.


Contract Hire is a rental for the agreed period.
You pay an initial rental fee, usually 3 or 6 months, and then an agreed rental amount over the said period, at the end you hand it back. There is no option to keep the car at all*.
The contract hire companies get discounts that we as end users, and for that matter main dealers, would never see. Mercedes offering 28% on many new cars at the moment, compared with around 12% margin on them with dealers.
So the contract hire guys are only having to fund the depreciation between the 28% they buy it for and the 40% it looses by year 2, so 12% total.
Hence why the hire prices are so much less a lot of the time.

They normally just bolt it on, so pay £1000 for a pano roof and you will pay that £1000 back over the 24 months, it really makes you think hard about whether you really want that option! wink



  • On the very odd occasion you may be able to buy it, but extremely rare.

so for someone who is looking to get a model with certain optional extras, they better off getting a near-new car financed on PCP since you got more chance to find one that fits your requirement. provided you can keep deposit down?

and can you exit a lease contract early?

Anybody know if there are any companies that INCLUDE the insurance within the lease?
I am guessing the above don't include it...

I don't know of any lease company that includes insurance; considering the variable risks involved, it would never work.

Why the requirement for the insurance to be thrown in with the lease? You just insure it like any other car only you have to declare that you aren't the registered owner of it, it's hardly ever an issue.

Insurance seems to be very expensive for the person I am buying the car for. So hence the question. Noticed Peugeot but yeah they're cars have nothing that attracts!
Anyone hear of one please let me know. Cheers

I'll have a look at how cheap I can get one tomorrow if you like, what spec, deposit/term/mileage are you looking for?
