Re: New Car - Lease it or Buy it?

I'm not suggesting cars older than 2 year old, tbh.

(you make me feel old, but technology hasn't moved on THAT far in the last 2 years - plus, get a top-spec model and it's probably better than what you're currently considering)

But also, don't forget that actual mpg is rarely the same as what the EU tests imply, so the difference ,ay be smaller than you think, and certainly not enough to cancel-out the 5-6k difference in price you pay.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
