Replace or with and.

This is a contract hire deal, you can't own it at the end.

BMW will have sold it at cost and agreed to buy it back at a price they know they can sell it at, the contract hire firm will make their money through the interest on the lending.

Maintainance will not be included, unless stated.

Buying expensive metal for cash is the dumb move these days.

My old man has just been offered an S350cdi for 339 a month on a 6+35 deal.
If he bought a 5 year old one for 25k he would loose more than that a month, however, he still likes to 'own' his cars so he is not sure!!

He has never kept a car for longer than 3 years, so he is only ever borrowing them, that's the way I view it.
