Got notification that the company car is going back in November (Bit early). So on the lookout.

Hopefully some interesting deals coming up in that time. But im looking for something Hot and hopefully not too heavy on the tax.

Failing that might try and get an allowance.

Thoughts are:

Golf R/S3
M140/240
Civic Type R - But they seem quite expensive!

Good deals are getting very thin on te ground due to limited supply of many vehicles, especially anything from Volkswagen Group

Volvo are coming out with some decent V90 / S80 deals but even these are scarce

Some Octavia VRs buyers are waiting 10 months for a car

yep 7 month wait on my VW i have ordered and may be delayed further following them admitting they cant cope with the new WLTP emission test which take ages and every combination of model and extras has to be tested. believe BMW have the same issue and struggling to cope

Are lease cars typically ones that are already made and available or do you have to wait for them to be made? If you have to wait how does that work if you are finishing an existing lease, do you go carless for the difference?

It's either / or depending on the deal etc. A lot of the great deals are stock cars thst need getting rid of.

If you want to terminate a lease early you normally can at an agreed cost. We cancelled our golf r recently and load £600 to get shot. Our monthly was 270 so not bad considering we didn't need to service it again or buy new tyres which we would if we went full term. We were over mileage too.

my current lease ends 25th september, i have a tig r line on order which is now looking likely to miss this date (ordered end of march). I can extend my current lease or try and find a stock car, take it end of august before new emissions come in and pay VW 55% of my last month.

If you havent narrowed it down to one particular car theres always very good stock deals out there, but be warned alot of manufacturers are experiencing delays as mentioned above if it becomes a factory order.

Got a year on one and 18 months on another.

Something small and quick for the Mrs and a mini 4x4 type for me I think. Hoping prices start to get better as there's not much at the moment

What kind of car?

£15200 to PCP a £20k car over 4 years doesn't sound too cheap to me especially only 6000 miles per year.

The £7791 GFV is a bit low for a 4 year old car depending on what it is.

I'm sure for the cost of £15k over 4 years you should get a more valuable car.
