Re: Anyone handed a lease car back? info needed

Indeed you seem not to be exposed to anything from what you're saying about the contract. I would imagine they don't have the stones to throw up a Betreibung but you never know.....anyway, from any lease that I've signed, I'd agree with you that they're bluffing. Thankfully for them, they don't pay the rip-off prices that they are trying to charge you!!

I assume it's the first hit if you Google "bmw mini glarus" that people should avoid?

ah the old "it's not me it's you" defence?

I'm sure breaching the privacy of someone's reputation comment without their permission is or should be frowned upon.

honestly, you're so keen to get the name-calling in that you've missed the bit where the garage believes it is owed 2k but nobody has and will give them that money.

You may feel like you're one-up here but you're not coming across at all well.

Re: Anyone handed a lease car back? info needed

I think there is a medical name for poor old Gammy, but cock does fit.

Back on topic, did you get any joy on the bill BB?

My lease is up next year and after reading this I'm getting concerned. You can get the MV to help with apartment handovers, it there an organisation that can help with car lease return, or is it a bend over and wait for entry job?

Re: Anyone handed a lease car back? info needed

I told them I'm not paying any of it, by email so they can't deny it, unless they can show me where I signed agreeing to 3mm all round, also pointed out the lights where already agreed as a warranty fix etc

not heard anything back since

basically get EVERYTHING in writing!! they will go round the car like a hire car company does, with a form and mark and damage etc, get a copy of that! don't trust them at all, check your docs, if it says 3mm all round and they need changing then do it yourself.

get a settlement figure and see if you can buy it and sell it, even if you only get what you pay for it, it'll save a lot of hassle

our last lease we bought and sold to the local dealer, and made 2k on the deal.

Anyone handed a lease car back? info needed

We returned our Alfa in 2012. It took them nearly a year to send us a bill. Some of it was expected, like damage done to the interior by our dog and some cosmetic things. But then there was an extra 2000 tacked on because we didn't do the scheduled maintenance and some other crap. Except we did the maintenance, just did it at a different garage, and I guess it wasn't in the book. They recommended the other garage and they actually contacted them once I explained the situation.

It took them 6 months to inspect the car and another two to prepare the bill. When I got the bill, I called the leasing company, and we negotiated away the extra 2000.

It helped that they were so incompetent with the inspection and billing.

Re: Anyone handed a lease car back? info needed

so an update

I emailed all the bigwigs in the company stating no where in the contract we signed did it say anything about this magical 3mm tread, just that the tyres had to be legal, a couple of weeks past and they finally got back to me removing the tyres from the bill.

So far so good

Now I've emailed them again asking why they are trying to charge me for fog lights that where warranty work (already agreed by BMW) and why they are trying to charge me nearly 1k for 'paint work' - that's all it says on the bill, when they charged my insurance co. over 2k for parking damage etc (which in itself was a pisstake as it had 2 small dents)

so they wanted over 4k to take the car back! I keep my cars as mint as possible so god only knows what they would charge someone who didn't give a toss (and the car was way under KM limit)

so a warning to you all, dealers will try and get away with murder when you hand a car back.

I have a really nasty feeling they have tried it on as I'm an auslander

ETA

Just to clarify the auslander bit, when we started the lease procedure english was fine, everyone spoke it and understood it no problem at all, when we handed the car back the same people couldn't speak it or understand it anymore, just "you must pay" "I don't understand" etc

Re: Anyone handed a lease car back? info needed

There was a recent article in a Romandie consumer magazine about the 'true' cost of leasing- and the extortionate penalties and charges if you want to return a car early- with the strict advice that if you think you may, for whatever reason, return car early- NOT NOT NOT to go ahead. Same for very expensive phones almost 'given' away with contracts (as one of our daughters found out when she had to leave Spain unexpectedly- ouch). So perhaps not so much to do with you being Jony Furiner.

Good on you for fighting them- at least you are rid now.
