Motoring.co.uk's finance section is overflowing with prestigious German estate cars that could save me a load of hassle
Regit's finance section is overflowing with prestigious German estate cars that could save me a load of hassle. Let me explain. My garden is currently occupied, not by rare or interesting plants, but by piles of rotting wood and copper pipes. So, I need to clear this junk before a certain 'unnamed person' nags me to within an inch of my life.The first cavernous contender is the BMW 3 Series. This compact executive vehicle is available on a thirty-four month personal contract purchase plan. Terms include payments of £349 at 9.9% APR, plus the £4,865 deposit. Should you decide to buy this likeable load lugger at the end of the contract, the optional purchase payment is £10,523. Those who find the 3 Series too compact may prefer a larger vehicle. Bring on the Mercedes E-Class. This monstrous status symbol is available for a £4,449 deposit, plus thirty-six payments of £379 at 5.8% APR. However, if you want to drive the E-Class until it too becomes junk, the optional purchase payment is £16,550. Now, whereas the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes E-Class are capable cars, some motorists prefer more subtle machinery. How about the tastefully restrained Audi A6 Estate? This vehicle could be filled with your own garden rubbish for thirty-six payments of £521, at 5.5% APR. Okay, this personal contract purchase plan's optional final payment is a noteworthy £11,285, but the initial deposit is only £1,750. Right, I am off to perform my He Man impression and shift a tonne of wood.
