Re: contract hire deals on new independant?
Great question. We also had a Spider LE on that great Contract Hire deal. Now looking at getting a Brera and pretty shocked to be honest at the finance quotes I've had from dealers so far.
I appreciate that the CH deal on the Spiders was probably subsidised, but can't believe there aren't better deals to be had than I've been offered so far. For example, 15% APR on PCP? Really? With interest rates where they are right now?
As a comparison, Jaguar charge 5.9% as do Mercedes, so it would cost me much, much less to have an XF or C Class 350 for the next 3 years than a Brera.
I realise depreciation will be worse on the Alfa so was expecting to pay a little bit more, but I don't want to be taken for a total mug on the interest rate as well!
I note the very low rates Alfa are offering on 1750 159s right now, and hopefully something like that will be available for the 1750 Brera ( which is the one I want!) soon. Only problem is that I want to get on and get it ordered!
