Re: Finance figures are a bit scary
Personally like probably the majority of car buyers, I just buy second hand.
And there's something of a glut of these ex-lease cars, so that can work well.
Alternatively if there's the money use a broker - the majority of new cars you can get around 20% off list price brand new, as first registered keeper, particularly if you're willing to be flexible on timing or some element of spec. Pay the deposit/commission by credit card and there's no material risk.
