Do Vauxhall produce anything worth buying new?  :-\
Does any mainstream manufacturer make anything worth buying new? Just been looking at the astra K 1.6 cdti estate, 27K for the elite. In three years and 30,000 miles you will get one for 8-9K.

Hard to imagine anybody being retarded enough to pay that. :-\


Yes when for similar money you could have this!  8)

Although I doubt they will give you 4000 for an Omega!  ;D

Hmm.....new Astra or F-Type. I shall need time to decide. ::)
Best to start off with the F type then graduate to the mighty Ashtray when you've got the hang of performance cars. ;D

Trouble is if a F type doesn't meet your needs car wise but an Astra does then where is the point in wasting your money on the F type?

One is to endure the other is to enjoy. Life is short. :)

Yes I can quite see how an F type would need to be endured,two seater which is no good to man nor beast,ugly as sin and horrendous road tax[or whatever they're calling it this week] ::)

The deals do work for some people.

For example, big bro (being a bit radio rental) likes his big Mercs, but is sensible enough to not want one beyond a couple of years old.  So he gets a 2 year deal or a few hundred quid a month, and hands back at the end.

The 16k he pays over 2yrs is far less than the depreciation on buying one...

I do agree that an F-Type is beyond impractical........most of the fun things in life are. :)

I suppose we all have different priorities. 16k for 2 years' motoring doesn't sound like much of a bargain to me. I spent less than half of that on my Omega and it's lasted me 12 years and counting.

None, unless he wants to tick the options list.

Quite. It sounds like a bum deal to me. But he "must" have a S-Class for some reason I can't grasp, and given that, I do have to concede that his way is the cheapest way to achieve that.

Ok.....so 16000 over  2 years is around 700 each month........so not buttons.

But as mentioned there is the depreciation to be considered.

What Merc does that money give him? ........not a 2 litre derv, I hope. :)

Doesn't your brother have a business? Can he not use the car for company business and get a tax write off?
