Good deal on a new 159?

Just been looking at cars, as I do when I'm bored and came across this deal on Autoworld...

New Alfa Romeo 159 JTDm 16v Lusso
Only £285 per month
Cash Price £22,170
Your Deposit £3,325.50
Deposit Support by Alfa £2,000
Balance of £16,884.50
41 Payments of £285.00 Final Payment £6,080.50
Total Payable by you £21,091.00 2.3%APR

To me that looks very very affordable, and has got me thinking it may even be possible for me....I shouldn't even be looking as I've only had my 156 since October but looks such a good deal and I want one!

What is 'Deposit Support by Alfa'? Is this Alfa's way of giving you a discount to offload some new cars? Or could you get more discount on top of that? I'm assuming it's not the scrap allowance as surely it would say that!

QUOTE = What is 'Deposit Support by Alfa'?

It sounds like a discount as all the numbers you list add up to show the £2000 as not being paid by you. Your true discount is £1079 if you consider your interest payment (£22170-£21091).

If you really want a good deal why not look at 1 or 2 month old car from Alfa, you can get a big saving on new and still have most of the warranty. I saw some cracking 159 Ti when I was searching a few weeks ago. Even a 6 month old car is a good buy as someone takes the hit on depreciation.

Worth thinking about.

Don't personally think that deal is anything to write home about.

Well Happy

Check out Chris Variava at Nottingham.

I saved £6000 off list price on a pre-reg 159 ti JTS. 3 months old and only 15 miles on the odo.

Speak to Paul as they had a ti 1.9 JTDM for sale a few weeks ago.
