Excess mileage is not 'breaking the contract' its a flexible feature of the contract.

Check the stated excess mileage rates, its often cheaper to get a lower mileage lease and pay excess mileage.

Our E63 is on 10Kpa, but the XS mileage is only 9p/m, so even if we did 15kpa (10k extra over the 2 years) it would only cost 900+vat extra.

Thats 45 / month, but if you put 15kpa in the lease-deal calculator it goes up over 100 / month!!

Agree, it needs to suit your situation, Paul M3 FST does live about 2 miles from work (round trip), I have a van for work, so that keeps my car miles down.

Not so the 'penalties', as above only 1k if we busted the mileage by 50% and did an exta 10,000miles on our new E63, which lists at 75K basic

The M5 is poorly specced TBH. I figured a lease deal on one and it doesn't even come with heated seats or comfort access FFS! Any options are charged for 100% on the lease, so its very pricey to add them.

The E63 has everything standard, full nappa leather, stitched leather dash, 14-speaker logic 7 harmon kardon, keyless go, full auto parking, power boot, full LED headlamps, variable dampers blah blah.

I just added black wheels with diamond cut rim and privacy glass.
E90 330i 6MT gone. E91 335i 6MT gone. AMG E63 Estate gone. M6GC current...
