GTV 3.0 or Brand New GT?
Here is the rub, would you buy a 6 year old GTV 3.0 or lease a Brand New GT Blackline?
From reading these forums I reacon that ownership costs would be about the same based upon 10,000 miles a year.
GTV 3.0 year 2000, stong history all major work done, 50,000 miles
Annual Interest at 7%: £420
Deprecaitation at 10,000 miles per year: £1,000
Repairs, Servicing, Tyres etc. per year: £2,000
Total: £3,420.00 year
Lease at £249+ vat/ month = £3,803.47 year - based upon 2+24 deal.
Repairs: £0 - Car under warranty
Obviously there is also fuel, insurance, road tax etc, which should be similar. I like owning cars outright as you can sell them (or keep them)whenever you want.
There is obviously the all important driving / owning experience too.
