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

If Pink can do it at that price then someone else would be able to. I can't imagine they have exclusive funding arrangements. Try some dealers or Arnold Clark.

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.
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
So £285pm, I was thinking the Lux were more like £320, I’d seen non-lux at circa £300 so £285 is obviously decent but still pricing rising on the year before.
M135i/128ti deals from Arnold Clark were good a few months back, probably as good as the Cupra deals given the larger list price.

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
Yes thats correct, I went for XC40 2 0 B4 Auto R design

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.
Yea I was looking at the options too but wasn't brave enough. I preferred having the stronger engine and at the same time sticking to the budget. I'm sure you will enjoy it with all the bells and whistles - Great Spec!

Just sent off an enquiry so thanks for posting.

Have you driven both engines - any thoughts on the T3 v the B4?

I have gone with Pink as when Arnold Clark beat the price (by about £6/mth), i noticed that the excess ppm on the Pink quote (and order) was half that of Arnold Clark, so should save me another £1k/£1.5k over the term (assuming they can't enforce a change mid-contract).

P.s. Look for my post crying about pink leasing in 3 years time when I go to hand it back. cry

Haha fingers crossed not mate!

Also why would it save u that much over the term - is that assuming you heavily go over your mileage? And if so wouldn't it be better to just get a higher allowance?

Has anyone had any experience of leasing a car via NHS Fleet Solutions ( https://www.nhsfleetsolutions.co.uk ?). My wife is eligible for this scheme via her employer (local government, not even NHS). You need to have a login to the website to view pricing.

There are some great deals on there, mainly for electric vehicles. All the prices below also include insurance for 4 drivers/servicing/tyres/breakdown.

Been looking at the AUDI E-TRON 300kW 55 Quattro 95kWh Technik 5dr Auto. £339.79pm (1+35, 6k miles)

All of the below are also on the same terms

HYUNDAI KONA 150kW Premium 64kWh 5dr Auto - £225pm. Available June.
MERCEDES-BENZ EQA EQA 250 140kW AMG Line 66.5kWh 5dr Auto - £335pm. Available July.
VOLKSWAGEN ID.3 150kW Life Pro Performance 62kWh 5dr Auto - £235pm. Available June.

I only tested the B4 engine. Its not fast, but adequate power for day to day driving. Can't give an opinion on the T3 as haven't driven it but power output figures and reviews suggests it could be underpowered. Plus the B4 is mild hybrid therefore the economy would be similar to the T3 but in return you are getting a more powerful engine. In my opinion it made sense getting the B4 over the T3. Well that's my thought process. I could be wrong.

Momentum doesn't have front parking sensors or a camera does it?

I’m returning my Cupra in a few weeks to Ald automotive frown. I have some curb rash on a quarter of one of the alloy wheels and a stone chip on windscreen about the size of a 5p or slightly smaller. Would those who have leased before through these guys advise getting the work done before returning or take the hit when I return it. Shall I get the windscreen replaced through insurance?

Cheers
James

Thinking of going for the eHybrid Cupra Leon estate deal mentioned upthread.
Can anyone advise whether you can charge a PHEV at a public fast charger such as a supermarket, or at a motorway? or are you limited to charging with a 3 pin at home? or something elsE?
Not really clued up on PHEVs unfortunately.

The deal looks good so just need clarification on the battery charging aspect before I go ahead or not.
Thanks.

Plenty of people. You will have to pay 50% or 55% of remaining payments. Also, mileage is pro-rata, so if you're close to your contracted mileage, you may have to pay extra for excess miles.

Otherwise, simple process. You tell them, you want to return it, pay what they want and arrange for collection.

A couple of things to bear in mind about this car, some of which apply to any PHEV;
1. You may not get close to the advertised range, even if you drive super gently
2. If you're not going to charge the car regularly, you've got a small petrol engine lugging around that extra weight, which is not ideal
3. It's got a slow onboard charger of 3.6kw, so you can charge using a 3 pin plug, or a wall box or a slow public charger, but you won't be able to use "rapid" chargers which are 50kw and up.

3 hrs and 42 minutes to charge at a slow public charging point/wallbox at home or 6 hours using a 3 pin plug at home

Did this with the wife’s Tiguan a few weeks back - 55% of remaining payments and excess mileage fee due to prorata. BCA collected and went through car with a fine tooth comb - I rejected their damage report, had to call but got the repair charges dropped.
