The saying goes “if it appreciates, buy it, if it depreciates, lease it”. Cars can depreciate really quickly, which is why I now lease my car and have done for the past 3 years. In fact, I am now on my second lease car, and I love getting to drive a brand new car. I'm paying less for the car and fuel than I was paying just for fuel in my second hand older car!
There are so many benefits to leasing a car! Leasing a car can offer you great value for money, especially when you compare the fuel costs between an older model. Having a lease car allows me to drive a brand new car and pay out less for fuel. I also get to have specifications that I wouldn't be able to afford if I was purchasing a car outright, such as my inbuilt sat nav. Many people are worried about what happens at the end of a lease, but once the lease is over you will have a few choices. If you do nothing, the lease company will come and collect the car and then take the car to be sold. However, they might offer you the option of extending the lease, taking out a new lease or buying the car from them. I love the thrill of getting a new car every time my lease finishes though!
After recently reading through Vertu Lease Cars’ nostalgic revisiting of the 80s’ seriously cool cars in film and television, I've been thinking about the cars of film and TV that I remember best, from Ghostbusters to Back To The Future. My absolute favourite is definitely KITT (The Knight Industries Two Thousand) from Knight Rider.
Imagine if you could lease KITT?! Boasting artificial intelligence, invulnerable armour and turbo boosters, KITT would make an ideal car for helping me to get to the car boot sale bargains for reselling! Instead of being a crime-busting hero, I would be the deal-getting hero of the day. Although I am not convinced that there is enough space in the boot for all of my purchases…maybe Tony can lease The Mystery Machine from Scooby Doo!
The biggest question is whether The Hoff would come as a standard with the lease?
What's TV or film car would you love to lease?
