Let's just keep this about good deals shall we rather than any other discussion that isn't about deals. Create a separate thread if you want to discuss this sort of thing. Defeats the whole point of a dedicated thread to deals.
you're telling me mate, i am trying to challenge the constant complaining about no deals. I see that as off topic, maybe you quite like it.

Anyway no one loves commanding everyone back on topic more than i do, so please try and keep it on topic would you.

Has anyone seen any decent deals for a XC40? Her in doors wants one but it has to be the higher power ones (190+ HP), 4wd and auto. Cheapest I’ve seen is +£2500 + £350 a month.
I ordered an XC40 with Santander a few weeks ago. I've been checking for offers on it for about the last 6 months and the current santander offers are about as good as I've seen. As another poster has already said, if you call them up they can quote you for any Volvo model, not just the ones advertised on their site. The minimum number of miles per year they offer is 8k.

How much is excess mileage?

8p per mile or 9.6p per mile
That has to be the cheapest mileage rate I have ever seen. Go 10k over the mileage allowance at it should cost you a grand total of £8 at the end of the contract.

It would be great if the contract made the same mistake!

Audi have lent me a 4.0tdi A5 Sportback while our A6 is with them. The A5 is without doubt the worst car I've ever driven. Save yourself the phone call. Explains why they are/were cheap to lease.

What makes you say that? I've inquired about one of the deals with them so would like to know what it's like and how you've found it!

this is just perpetuating the off topic chat... i said that because this thread is just people moaning there are no deals and expressing concern that they won't be able to replace their current vehicle etc. My point was just buy a used car and focus your worry on other things until more deals come along. I am not sure why people seem to be feeling they cannot bear to have anything other than a lease. Maybe you could discuss it in another thread, perhaps.

Erm, pretty sure your calculator is broken. If you go 10k over then it's £800. My current volvo deal is 7ppm excess.

Check the units. It is obviously a typo.

The wife took my A6 in for a service and she had a A5 courtesy car, she wasn’t impressed either. She said the interior wasn’t up to much.

I have a 40 TFSI A5 (pre-facelift).

I'd actually say the interior is nice - not new A6 nice, but still very well put together and fairly high rent. The ride is harsh on sports suspension, though, and the steering is the numbest I have every encountered - zero feedback through it. The TFSI engine is smooth, right up to the redline and fairly brisk. It's very very economical on a steady motorway run.

Basically it's good transport, but it's without any kind of soul.

Thanks for the feedback good to know! Not too bothered about if the interior isn't quite as up to spec as the new A6, i'd be coming from a Fiesta which i'm currently paying £30 a month less for on PCP so big step up for little extra anyway.

Yeah, a friend of mine stepped into the A5 from his previous gen RS4 and he commented how nice it was. Having had a new A6 loaner a few weeks back, that's nicer again, but the build quality of all Audi interiors is right up there I'd say. Handling not so much!

As has been said the ride is poor. Crashes and bangs. Low rent interior to my eyes. Rattles terribly. Flat engine which the gearbox forces to race. Not the most relaxing ride. I get they are good value but all you're getting is a badge. Sorry to be negative but I am really surprised how poor it is.

Pretty much in agreement with all of that bar the interior comment - not sure what else around the same price has a better interior tbh? New 3 series perhaps, but not much else I can think of.

Gearbox isn't much cop as a manual, so S-Tronic perhaps worth looking at if you are gonna get one.

Poorest feeling Audi interior I've been in lately was a courtesy Q2 - hateful thing to drive and interior with hard plastic everywhere.

I find our 2017 A4 interior (which is much the same as the A5) a comfortable and nice place to be - solid, well built with no rattles/squeeks and with the older style MMI wheel instead of touchscreen, really simple to use the sat nav/entertainment with the 'right' mix of dials, touch sensitive physical buttons and tactile dials.

I'm not a fan of leather in general, so chose the Alcantara/leather mix which is wearing very well after 3 years.

Piano black trim not so much...shows little swirls and scratches, but that's the same for piano black trim regardless of manufacturer

Demand for leasing seems to be mega high at the moment, but I do wonder if the lack of deals/car availability is going to set it back a few years.
