Re: Car leasing transfer

View Post
I may need to buy a used car in the near future and thought I would have a look at a popular leasetransfer site with the view to taking on a lease and then buying the car.

It may not actually be as bad as it sounds, especially cars nearing the end of their lease with a reasonable buy out payment. Often people over estimate their mileage so they've been paying a lot more per month and the residual buy out amount is reduced accordingly. I am talking a 60,000 km allowance and the lessee has only done 25,000 km.

Unless I'm missing something, there are some potential bargains to be had.
Depends on how the company treats them. I have colleagues with too much money.

Example: The leased 2015 -2019 a 320d and made 4000 kms. Thats is right.

However bmw leasing told them: Want to pay same monthly? We renew your car with brand new 530xi full extras.

This was a discount over 35%. My brand new mercedes was a discount of 31%. I wanted to buy a used Golf and could not say no to 31% discount, full extras and 0% interest.
