Just looked at the pics my dealer sent me. Mines on Michelin too.

I don't drink or smoke, but I have kids. I don't work anymore, after more than 40 years I found out
that it's not really my thing, so I gave up a few years ago
But I/we do buy stupid things such as new cars, although not too often

Pretty sure you won't get any of the new Volvo, SPA, CMA models for £250 a month!

Mine is £650 inc VAT, maintenance and 15k miles a year

Indeed, although we make up for the lack of smoking with Gin and 4 trips abroad per year!

It's really worth shopping around when leasing - my prices ranged from £370pm to £450pm for the same spec and 12+48. Over 4 years that's over £3.5k

That’s pretty crap isn’t it. I bought my xc90 outright with cash (I buy everything cash other than house). If I loose my job etc fine, I have no real outgoings.

To have a car etc hanging round your neck 3 years would not be for me lol!
