    Just accepted a role with 4200 car allowance but my old banger super whizz audi does not cut the mustard.... ;)

    Does anyone have any experience of buying a car on Finance or leasing?

    And what should I be looking at for 250-300 a month?

    many of the folks at work have opted and taken cars on PCP plans , 230-300 would get a mid range Focus IIRC( maintenance included ) but dont forget you get tax relief on business mileage too so you may have more to spend

    Guy at work is leasing, he got a fully loaded megane convertible on lease for 3 years and thats 250 a month.

    I would personally take the money per month and get my own car.

    Edit just asked him its 354 :(

    PCP? So personal finance from a dealer?

    I totally forgot to ask about mileage :D

    Sounds good - cheers rotty - so I presume that the employer pays the figure direct for the car monthly?

    the company pays an amount into the salaries of those who do this ( I don't ) this amount is taxable ,the amount of the PCP is then deducted from the salary


    if you want a quote on any particular car let me know

    Try a company called 'Central Contracts'. They will quote you on any car, and find you the cheapest from around 10 different sources.
