Two great options with Audi R8 Finance

I recently bought a Audi R8 and was thrilled to see that Audi R8 Finance has to fantastic deals with a very competitive Apr rates.

The first plan I looked into was what Audi Finance calls their Solutions Plan and it helps buyers to get a higher model with greater specifications for their money. It helps you to be able to afford the car by only paying for some of it when you are using it over around 24-38 months. It consists of agreeing upon an initial deposit and then paying set monthly payments again agreed by you. At the end of the monthly payments you can either keep the car by paying a settlement fee or you can trade it in for a different car or you can just give it back.

The second deal I looked at was a hire purchase deal which is brilliant if you decide you would like to own the car at the end. This plan needs an initial deposit with the remaining amount being divided into the monthly instalments for up to 60 months. After you make the final payment then you own the car.

All this sounded great to me however I needed to have some figures so that I could make my final decision for which option I would choose. Working out the cost of the hire purchase deal was easy by just adding on the interest and working out the time period and monthly payments but I needed to compare it with the solutions deal.

Then I found the Audi R8 Finance calculator on line. This was brilliant as it allowed me to choose the model I wanted then the engine size. I was then given a choice of how much deposit I wanted to pay and the mileage per year I would need to include. Finally I was asked for the length of the plan that is, how many months I wanted the deal to be over. The calculator then gave me a detailed breakdown of what I would need to pay and even emailed the breakdown to me in pdf format. I was then able to make an informed decision on what was best and the most suitable deal for my budget.



Porche Finance for My Wife’s New Boxster

We all love the Porsche and as a 50th birthday present for my wife I have decided to getting some Porsche Finance and buying her one. I know she will love it as it’s a fantastic drive. So I did my homework and found out everything there was to know about the car and it’s spec.

Yes it’s only a 2 seater but as this is just for my wife that would be fine. She won’t be interested in this but it is a rear-wheel drive and has a strong engine with superb handling. I was tempted on the automatic gearbox but eventually settled on the manual one as that was what she was used to.

The bit I knew she’d be interested was the interior, I found that there was plenty of space inside considering it was a smaller convertible. What I knew she would like too was that there were two boots one in front end and one in back end. Plenty of room for the shopping then. Now she can’t say I’m not practical when it comes to cars.

Porche Finance made it all possible

The Porsche Finance deal I chose made it possible for me to pay an initial deposit followed by monthly payments over 36 months and then a final payment which would coincide with one of my endowment policies finishing. This was exactly what I needed and what is more it was set up in a matter of hours and my wife’s new Porsche Boxter was on order.

I did opt for some extras though for the interior and I spent a little bit more to get an entertainment boost kit. The kit included a built in sat nav which I think is a must for my wife. The sat nav came with a 7 inch touch screen and also blue tooth and a dab radio which I knew would put a smile on my wife’s face. Finally I have to tell you what colour I chose. Well there was only one choice in my mind and it had to be the slate metallic grey as it is so stylish.

Finally I have to tell you – on the day of her birthday I presented her with the car with a large red bow across the bonnet and she was astounded and speechless. Needless to say I’m in the good books.

Tesla Finance – is it worth it?

If you are looking around for a new car you might be looking into different models including hybrid cars and you may be wondering what are the best deals. Perhaps you are looking at Tesla Finance and thinking is it really worth it? So I thought I’d looking into this and see if it really is value for the money.

Tesla Finance

If you are considering the Tesla Model S the there are several models available and the costs will depend on how many motors you have and on the size of the battery. I’ve looked at a middle range model the S 80D and tried to work out the costings making allowances for the running costs over a period of time and any savings you can make there.

As Tesla is an American firm then I have made my costings in American Dollars as how much you will be paying will at the end of the day be dependent on the exchange rate at the time of purchase.

Tesla Finance savings

The starting cost for the car is a whopping $80,000 and you will need to add to this the extras that you would obviously opt for when buy a car of this standard. These extras include auto pilot, upgraded audio system, executive seats in total you will end up paying around $90,000. But don’t stop reading here because this initial outlay with Finance will be slowly be recovered over the years you own the car due to the lower maintenance and gas savings.

One of the biggest savings you will make will obviously be on the fuel. The Tesla will cost you around $500 a year on average compared with petrol engines of cars of similar sizes being roughly $1200. There is also a saving on time too as there is no more stopping to fuel up. All you need to do is plug in in the night and you’re set to go in the morning.

Another major saving you will make is with the maintenance as an electric engine has less servicing requirements to a petrol or diesel engine. The battery usually lasts for 8-10 years which is probably longer that you would keep the car.

Finally by using Tesla Finance you have the option of selling the car back to Tesla at the end of the deal for the fixed price agreed at the start of the deal. On the whole this is a win win deal.
