Does anybody use skoda connect? I Can see an option to use my own wifi, therefore i could create a mobile hotspot from my phone and have people connect to that through the vehicle? (i have unlimited data so that would be a cost saving option!)

Would that work, does anybody do this?
Maybe one for the vag group forums.

Hi Guys,

I placed an placed an order for:
Volvo XC40 SUV Momentum B4 MHEV 197ps - Auto
1+35 at £307.18
6k mileage per annum
No options - Black Stone paint & Charcoal Interior.
Excess mileage 13.8 per mile.
Expected delivery August / September.

Opted for the B4 engine over the T3 - abit more punchy than the T3. I visited the local Volvo dealership and was fortunate to test drive the B4, although is was the AWD. Comfy, quiet, spacious and well built - was pretty impressed with it. The R Design looks amazing though!

I know a lot of people have probably moaned about this already, however how the F did the price went up so much since last August? Unbelievable!!!

I ordered a 20reg Leon Cupra in white last summer, the initial payment was £1,100 - £1,300 and then SEAT contributed too. It was a 3 year lease and it worked out £197 a month or something like this (had to cancel this order due to unforeseeable circumstances).

I am now in a position to get a new car on a lease and want something really fancy, but the prices are eye watering. Previous Golf R was like £250, now it's more like £320+.

Do you reckon the price will just continue to go up every year? How are people still leasing cars when they're so expensive nowadays? I know a lot of folks here talk about leasing, but I cannot get my head around the latest figures.
Leon Cupra’s were £220pm last year? I didn’t see that but that seems impossibly cheap as they were £250pm in 2016 and when ever I’ve seen them mentioned this last few years they were £320pm. We have had a 2016 and a 2019 Cupra (£250pm and £269pm on 1+23).

(Prices based on 8k pa).

Good price that, and I would agree about the B4 engine being the better option! If my M135i deal falls through I will be copying yourself with one of these

Looks a decent price, do you have a link / contact? Could a ideal replacement for the wife's Evoque later this year. Cheers!

I had to check my mailbox for documentation as I kept giving guesstimate figures above.

It was a very limited offer. They had something like 30 cars en route to UK. This was initially advertised on WhatCar but it was with SEAT Stockport. I rang them directly and got a cracking deal.

The deal was for a 20reg "Leon 5dr CUPRA 2.0 TSI 290 PS 7-speed DSG-auto" in Nevada White without any options. You couldn't get options as the cars were already en route to UK. I placed the order in July 2020 for delivery first week of August 2020.

SEAT Stockport don't charge admin fees and it worked out as follows: £1,300 initial payment + SEAT contribution, followed by £187 a month, 8k miles and 48 months deal.

If this was available again right now, I would take it straight away without thinking. As stated before, my circumstances have changed and I had to cancel the order 2 weeks later. Still thinking about it and will probably think about it for the rest of my life, or until I find something similar.

With the above in mind, I am inclined to take any deal and will probably just buy a used car as someone mentioned earlier on. I started browsing for a lease earlier this week and couldn't believe my eyes at the costs / people who seem to be grabbing these deals thinking it's an amazing deal (probably is if you compare to the current offers), when in fact they're not very deals IMO and in comparison to a year ago; bear in mind that 1 year isn't as far off a 4 years ago, so having a spike of circa £110 for the same car and then a higher initial payment is a bit too much. I appreciate that metal / chip situation isn't helping the market, but forget that. I'll keep an eye out during the next few weeks, but if nothing changes, I won't be leasing cars at all.

Yeah long time on it I guess but fixed motoring at £250 a month With electric low running costs might be suitable for some. Last year will be outside warranty but being a mazda I wouldnt be too worried

Fair enough although being a 4yr deal tends to make it cheaper, personally wouldn’t do more than 3.
I’d say that that deal is the exception and the rule is more like what I posted. Also
List prices have risen so you’d have to factor that in when weighing up what is decent and what isn’t.

That was probably a run out deal on the old model though, no?

Costs always come down when they’re trying to get rid of stock cars of soon to be updated models

The deal was through 123 Santander - details were posted a few pages back.

Applied for the Momentum 2.0 B4 initially but after seeing the Momentum and R design I had a change of heart. Didn't like the cloth seats in the Momentum.

R Design was quoted at at £329.66 on the same terms. I obliged as it was only approx £22 more than the Momentum

RRP is £34,969.99
Total term cost £11,867.76
Maybe someone can work out the percentage but I think its just over 30%

R Design adds (main additions):
Leathers (half)
Black gloss Grills, mirror caps etc (essentially a 'black styling pack')
18 inch Alloys
Electric assited tailgate (boot)
Rear tinted windows

The Inscription is couple of pounds cheaper than the R Design at £327 and some pennies.

Coming from a Golf R - I know a totally different car but bare in mind guys, that you don't get Adaptive cruise control, Heated Seats and Apple car play/ Android auto. These are all options on all 3 specs (Momentum, Inscription and R design).

Finally the service has been impeccable so far, applied on Friday requesting a few quotes with different engine variants and mileages etc. You had the option of filling in application/finance form or apply over the phone. I took the call and 30 minutes later finance was approved. Upgraded to R design on Sunday, yes received email replies on a Sunday! Hope this helps.

^Seems like a decent deal! Was there an option to choose an initial payment? Were you already a 123 customer? I have a credit card with them but not sure if that qualifies!

Has anyone gone for the Volvo XC40 1.5T3 163 SS Momentum 6Spd from Santander 123?

£0 upfront
£285
36 months
10kpa

Seems like a decent deal!

My girlfriends 1series PCP ends in September so want to get something lined up, she wants an X1, Q3 etc but for the money with £0 upfront this seems like a winner, IF the deal is still valid.

Yes it was the best price I could find at the moment. Its not a great deal but considering the current climate its not too bad. From what I gather they are receiving alot of interest and was told they have a set allocation of cars so deal won't be on for too long.

No they didn't ask me if I had an account - applied and approve without being an account holder of any sort. They didn't ask me.
Not sure about the initial I didn't ask as one up front suited me.

No it isn’t, plenty of people got good deals on Cupras last year.
I got my Leon Cupra 290 on a 3 year deal for 6 months up front, £249 per month.

Even the more expensive dealers were able to offer just under £300pm.

That being said I feel very fortunate to have got that deal when I did. Few months later and the prices have went silly

Hi,


Yours looks a great deal!
I have been considering the R Design too but was quoted £452.68 on 1 + 35 basis (10k miles).
Can you confirm what basis yours was on?
Also, on second reading, yours might be XC40 (I am looking at XC60)

Thanks

Have also just gone for the XC40 from Santander. My first lease and really pleased with the service from them. I must have went through about 15 different quotes with differing trims, engines and options before settling on:

Volvo XC40 T3 Manual R-Design
- Android Auto
- Climate Pack
- Park Assist Pack
- Versatility Pack

8,000 miles, 36 months

£341 a month

Works out at about 36%, I've lurked this thread for long enough to know that it's not really a deal worth shouting about but I've had my eye on the XC40 for a while so I was happy enough.

Hi all

I read on here a while back that pink car leasing are terrible and charge unfairly when you give the car back. Are they seriously still bad?

Ive found this on a3 and nothing else comes close:
35 TFSI S-Line Manual
£232pm on a 3+35
