Another beautiful, and luxury, car to showcase today – the Audi A6 Diesel Saloon 2.0 TDI Ultra SE Executive 4dr S Tronic! Our personal leasing customer, from Manchester, is coming to collect their replacement vehicle this week as they upgrade their car from a Mercedes C Class manual to the bigger A6 auto.
Some customers will organise their new vehicle almost six months before they need the new vehicle to arrive, whereas some customers will change on a 2/3 week notice.
This does lead on to a great question about leasing – how long does it take to organise a new lease vehicle?
The answer to the question is very much “it depends”. When you are looking for a new car you have to consider the different categories of deals which are available to you:
· Stock Offers – cars are either at a compound/dealership or UK port and will take circa 1-3 weeks to transport to customer;
· Allocation Offers – cars are already have a build date and the customer will be able to amend certain elements of the car. This will take between 4 – 8 weeks to arrive in the UK; or
· Factory orders – cars are built to the specific/bespoke requirements of the customer and this can take from 6 weeks – 6 months (or more) to arrive in the UK.
Over that last 3 to 4 years, as the contract hire industry has grown, we have seen a large number of stock deals, where customer choose pre-built units in order to save money.
In many cases the vehicles are “pre-registered” which is not to say they have been driven or are in a poor condition.
This simply means that, as a condition of the deal, a manufacturer has requested that vehicles are registered on a specific date in order to achieve a specific target. When you register a vehicle you have to consider that this starts the clock ticking for a) the warranty; and b) the MOT. These need to be considered when you are looking at a pre-registered vehicle i.e. savings vs practicality. For personal customers, you also have to consider that due to distance selling rules, there is a compulsory 14 day cooling-off period (beginning on the day after you sign the order with us). Therefore, if are you in a rush to get your new car, just consider some of the basic time constraints.
In terms of the car shown here, the lovely Audi A6 Saloon, this is based on the following configuration:
· Brilliant black Solid Paint
· Milano Leather – Black
· Aluminium Ellipse Silver Trim
· 18″ 5 Twin Spoke Alloy Wheels
The standard specification on the vehicle is fairly buxom – 10 speaker sound system, leather upholstery, cruise control, 17” alloys, 6.5” navigation screen, bi-xenon lights, floor mats, parking system plus (front/rear sensors), hill hold assist, body coloured externals, LED daytime lights, climate control, space saver spare wheel, keyless start, anti-theft alarm, lumbar support and heated front seats. In terms of additional factory specification – consider privacy glass, electric folding mirrors and the upgraded 18/19” alloys. For those drivers looking for something more sporty, go for the S-Line specification.
On the technical-side, company car and business drivers can note that the car shown here has a P11d of £35,870.00 and CO2 of 109g/km. The 1968CC 7 speed semi-auto engine delivers 67.3 combined MPG, 0-62 times of 8.2 seconds and 190ps.
