Ultimate Garage

The ultimate garage is a petrol heads dream and must feature on any self-made millionaire’s ‘to-do’ list. Having read a number of forums and watched several TV shows on this subject, it seems the Ultimate Garage is more of a showroom. From Jay Leno’s garage to Nick Mason’s collection, they are all extremely impressive and I am very envious, but, where is the car lift and the tool boxes? Continue reading Ultimate Garage

Porsche Panamera Over Time

Having experienced driving 3 x Panamera’s over the past couple of years; I thought it time to reflect on my initial thoughts about this car on UK roads.

The Panamera is 100% too big for the UK on country roads, villages and town centers. The only time I have found the Panamera experience enjoyable is driving long distances on motorways, here is the Panamera’s habitat.

Buying and Selling Cars

Our Classifieds section is now live, it’s currently in a basic form but functionality will be added over the coming months.

To assist; here are guides on Buying and Selling

I’ve always wondered about car finance/lease/pcp and the reason why so few people review the rates of bank loans prior to this. For example – VWFS (Volkswagen Financial Services) who provide finance for Porsche also; are quoting 12% APR on a £25k car on their approved used site.

For a 48 month duration, HSBC will provide £25k at 3.9% APR, which translates into £562.60 pm and a total payment of £27,004.73 over 4 years. There are no additional booking fees on top of this.

The VWFS example on a £25k car is £580.29 pm, deposit of £2,499.90, acceptance fee of £155, option to purchase fee of £60 and a total amount of £30,568.82 paid.

Therefore a £3.5k saving with a bank loan – Worth considering ;-).
