I'm Dreaming of a...
We all have a dream car right? From Aston Martin to Bentley everyone has a prestige motor that they can see themselves in after a Lotto win. These types of cars are influenced by speed, design and luxury, not to mention Formula One, big egos and our favourite movies. Unfortunately most of our dream cars are right out of budget. However, car leasing does make the dream seem a bit more realistic and you can find some great leasing offers by enquiring on favourite makes from Audi to Mercedes by giving us a call on 0345 643 5687 or submitting your details via our website. By paying a monthly rental and choosing your initial payment, you’ll find it far easier to drive around in a brand new top make than saving up thousands to own one. For some people, dream cars are not about luxury and cost but style and practicality. We always have access to the most attractive leasing offers on the market from Ford to Volkswagen; we will find the right car for you.
We also all remember the excitement of getting the keys to our first vehicle. For most of us this would have been second hand with a few bits falling off, but whether it was a second hand present or a hard earned run around we never forget the first. If you’re looking for a first car, leasing is a great option to consider. We have plenty of affordable hatchbacks and choice to get you started on the road. Enquire on the type of vehicle you would like and our sales team will do the rest. We will submit your details for finance and if approved, we will order and deliver your first car to you.
To find out more about future dream cars and memories of first vehicles we asked fellow colleagues of BestCarFinder and some employees of Alliance Asset Management Group (our parent company) to tell us what they would most like to be racing around in, what they currently drive and their very firsts:
