Re: does anyone one on here lease a GT or Brera
I'm not sure there's a lot in it. A £20,000 loan at the bank will set you back about £650 a month. The total loan payment over 3 years is going to be £23,500 and the car is going to be worth (let's be miserly) £8,500 so it's cost you £15,000.
A lease of £400 over 36 months is going to cost you £14,400.
Obviously, the more deposit you can put down (the less you borrow) and the more you keep your car neat and tidy (the more it will be worth) will make the difference closer.
It seems leasing is good if you don't want to own the car (you'll get a new one after three years) but as my mum would say, if you bought it, it's yours and you don't have to pay a penny more, whereas if you lease it, after 3 years you don't have a car and HAVE to buy a new one.
