    That's interesting and not something I had considered before.

    Your point about writing off or getting stolen seems irelevant if you had a fully comprehensive insurance policy on a non-leased car though.

    I'm not a fan of small cars or small engines and The only way I could get a luxury/high performance GT coupe or saloon would be buying an old second hand car.

    For example I drive a Ford Sierra 2.9 V6 and pay £200 per year insurance, £230 in tax and usual MOT price - this to me seems like a bargain. It cost me £1000 to buy and has 70,000 on the clock.
    Yeah the problem though lies in the fact that if it's an old car they'll give you a cash payout to replace it, and I've known a couple people to have to cash in on their insurance and not gotten anywhere close to what the car was worth in terms of sale price if it was still intact. Whereas with the lease on a new car you're just getting that car replaced with another new one.

    Fair enough, of course you can get bigger cars with larger engines on lease as well which you'd just pay a larger upfront fee for, I like small cars though anyway, not had a car with a big engine so it's just what I'm used to.
    Got a luxury feel inside, I'm into my music and the sound system is brilliant, drives like a dream, can't complain.
    But yeah, just the peace of mind of having a new car is one of the main selling points for me as well, I used to hate knocking about in old cars and every time I heard the car make a little noise I didn't like the sound of I'd start fearing that a breakdown was imminent :lol:

    Oh same
    Lovely little car isn't it It's no wonder the various models have won several awards over these past few years since the introduction of the new models, it's like a luxury estate car packed into a little hatchback (though, I'm tall and built and I can get into and out of it no problem, so it's not even that small).

    I've got a 65 plate 2.0 TDI golf and I'm 26. It's my second from new, the new one is quicker but the old one had heated leather seats which was nice. I drive a lot for work so I traded that one in at 40k miles.

    I've always had bikes so I dont think i could take anything slower!

    Age: 21. At the moment, I make use of a company car (Audi A4). With regards to a personal car, I've got my eyes on a 2016 model. I'm just waiting for it to go on sale

    I had a Golf R until recently, when it went in part-ex for dad's latest toy :lol:

    C200 petrol. Really don't like diesels, even in a Merc.

    Cousin bought the C63 AMG around the same time - that really shifts! LOL
