465 inc VAT with 1400 down is about the best.

I see 426.99 with 595 deposit there? Or 425.54 with 1276.72.

They're around the same camp, sub 5 seconds to 60. But that doesn't entirely give you a feel for how quick it is.

Tbh both of them bore me and seem like an awful waste of moolah

Last month I got a brand new BMW 116d Sport on PCP. its very nice to drive, very economical and tax is £30 a year.

Deposit was £300 and £290 per month for 48 months. 3.9% APR.

I am happy with that.

I think we've all long gathered you don't like the BMW M135i. You've said it countless times in any thread it has been mentioned.

It is a very odd and strong anger you have against it.

Pretty much all the motoring journalists and many people like myself differ from your opinion, especially on the waste of money.

Every car would be a waste of money if that was the case.

I don't ever recall in all the threads when you've been asked to give a better alternative you have actually managed to.

Did someone mention M135s? Yes I have one.....

Sub 5 seconds to 60, RR at 340bhp, just been voted Top Gear Sports Car of the Year. Yes it's no sports car, but it is way to good to go in the Hot Hatch category hence the reason they moved it to a different category.

It does have a face only a mother could love, but who cares when the glorious 6 pot is singing at the red line....

Certainly not me ;-)

Righty... I'm looking for a car for the Mrs... contemplating another PCP (just finished off the last one) due to circumstances... she was thinking Fiat 500 but I found a deal on Broker4Cars for a Seat Ibiza FR 1.2 TSI DSG...

Spec we're looking for is...

5 doors
Automatic
Climate
Cruise
Auto lights & wipers
Heated front seats
Electric windows all round
Tyre Pressure Sensors
Spare Wheel (non of this tyre repair kit rubbish)
Rear parking sensors and leather would be nice but not a must
Not bothered about NAV or fancy paint

Deposit is up to £3000 and monthly payment up to £200 over 4 years with 10000 miles.

What can you guys find that beats this?
