In my defence I did not type "it's", Apple decided it knows best and auto corrected. It won't let you type "its".

If it is, that's great. I've got an electronic version of the M Performance catalogue but it's an early one and only has the performance bits in it. The hunt is on

I learned not to lease unless it is the only financially viable option. You're just too far removed from the process and have zero control over anything. Dealers are mostly crap and need nagging but you can't nag them when you're leasing and the lease company will never be a good enough avatar to do you justice.

So yeah, leasing has its downsides as well as its good

Trying to sell the 2yr 9 month 20k miles Merc C Class 350 CDI AMG Sport Blue Efficiency 7 Speed Auto, Sat Nav Command System etc etc. Book price secondhand 21k, dealer offered us 16k. Secondhand cars are worth beans. Very trying. At least the Mk6 GTI had a queue of interested buyers. I even got a nice fat deposit!

I have always in the past bought direct from my local dealer and had an excellent service.

However, this time, due to a massive monthly saving that my dealer couldn't compete with I went via a lease company who used a different dealer I didn't know of.

So far I have called the dealer direct every other week and they always taken my calls and quoted the same delivery date of the 10/12

Buying from my normal dealer would have meant a 320d low spec against a high spec 330d from the lease company for the same monthly figures.

So far it's been a no-brainer and as long as I get my car this side of xmas I will be chuffed and will have been worth the wait.

Although the deal did appear to good to be true when I placed the order only time will tell.

Not really. I've left that to the ex. I have no time due to work pressures. Neither does she. So if we lose a bit, so be it. Can't be bothered with all the hassle. She'll contact just 2 more and we'll leave it at that.

YEA each to their own, as you say secondhand cars are getting cheaper and cheaper. There are so many on dealer forecourts I wonder how they ever sell them all.

I leased my 123d (2 cars ago) through BMW and the whole process was exactly the same as if I'd ordered on PCP (as I have this time). Even put my private plate on it. Monthly repayments were a lot lower as well. I'd have done the same this time as well, but I needed my settlement paying off for the 135i, which they did (was about 4k short) as part of the deal, as they had a lot more flexibility to discount and do a deal etc. on the PCP. I would definitely lease again though (through my business); with the monthly repayments being lower, and the value of the car at the end if you did want to buy it (sometimes they'll let you, though they're not contractually obliged to), will likely be about the same as the balloon payment on the PCP as well, so there's not much in it...
