I could sell the 335i (which is all paid for) and the cash from that would pay those payments on an M3 for 3 years nearly!!

hmmm

Has to be tempting. One of my big fears with an M3 would be getting it sold at the other end especially given the hatred towards mega thirsty cars. This deal takes away all those concerns.

Exactly, the Edition 500 has great options too and individual paint and extended novillo leather.

You wouldn't need anything else.

I would be nice to scratch that juvenile M3 itch before non-turbos are gone for ever.....


As you said, it would probably lose 30k+ in 3 years, but you'd not even pay half that in lease payments.

At 8k a year it would only need 1 service too.

Might need a few sets of tyres as they don't last too long, depends on your driving style of course.

Believe it or not, I looked at that exact link this morning! I found a limited edition red one too which was a similar price. Can't find the damn link now though.

I don't want to look at these any more, far too tempting!!

Do by thats 9240 total for 2 years lease. How does this make sense? Surely the car will devalue by atleast 20k over that period.

The above is assuming your VAT registered. What am i doing wrong here?

Must Resist!!

Is it just convertibles though?

462 per month inc VAT is pretty cheap!

Think its more than 9240, I'm getting 13398 for a personal lease and a business can reclaim 50% of the VAT.

Still tempting .............

Yes, but you wouldn't want to have it as a company car, the BIK would be horrific being based on list price of circa 60k. You can't even lease a mini JCW for less than 400 a month!

I phoned them and these cars are NOT stock, they are build slots for August delivery, so they would be factory orders to your own spec...

Just add VAT for real cost to you, you really need to own a business to set it up, then after the first payment change the Paying bank account direct debit to your own, repay that first payment to your business, job done.

They don't care who's paying, a business still pays the VAT, but claims in back separately.

Phil, yes only verts left, i contacted them and all coupe M3 build slots are sold.

No more till M4 next year.

Does anyone know if there are any decent deals on M3 saloons or whether they have any build slots left? I will be needing a 4 door soon and with these sorts of deals, an M3 saloon might be just the ticket.

Colleague of mine is seriously tempted.
Got a quote for 462 per month on personnel. Basically exact same price as business just +VAT.

His only problem is he doesn't want a vert...(contacted them and thats all thats left now. )

Of course, only difference between personal and business is the vat, business still has to pay the vat, but can offset it.

Yep only verts left, that's it guys -

LAST OF THE Non turbo M CARS! For ever....
