  1. Lease lockout of MyTesla Web Account?!

    Tesla Model 3
    I just wondered if there are any lease drivers here and can share if they have access to their cars MyTesla Web Account after login? I queried the fact (with VirtualServiceUK) that I cannot see my M3 in the account (although Android App is fine with same login details). Tesla Virtual Service UK...

  4. Car Cost Comparison Speadsheet

    General EV Discussion
    Hi all, I was reminded of this spreadsheet I made a while back for my own purposes to compare the costs of different ICE lease deals a few years back, and then a few months back I used it to compare the estimated costs of potential used car purchases, and then more recently to compare the costs...

  6. Battery Lease vs. Buy Outright

    Renault ZOE
    Looking to buy a new Zoe ZE40 but I'm debating whether to lease the battery or buy it outright. The only reason I would not want the battery lease is that after 10+ years or so (time I hope to own the car for) whenever I decide to get rid of the car or part exchange it, the lease would not...
  7. Fleet / Company Car Orders

    Volkswagen ID.3
    I have posted about this previously in one of the other threads but thought it might be good to have a separate (probably quite niche!) thread for those of us hoping to lease. The previous info from my fleet account manager at VW Leeds was: "By the looks of our information we have so far from...
  8. Second hand or lease?

    General EV Discussion
    Hi all, after 2 years of campaigning we're finally due to get an EV charger in our village (for those of us without off street parking). My initial view was to lease an EV for a few years and then asses the extra vehicle options available in 2021/2022. However with a max budget of £300 per...

    General Renault Z.E. Discussion
    I'm interested to purchase my first EV. Spotted a Renault Fluence EV for sale but worried about the obvious battery longevity question. So scanned around this form, but have not yet found some of the answers to my questions; I'll enquire about the current range and SOH and have listed some...

  14. PCP Versus Lease (I-Pace)

    Jaguar I-PACE
    Okay being doing some number crunching on the PCP Vs Lease question. Would like some advice on what people think? (Is the working okay, have I missed out something major?) (Firstly Jag's PCP on the website has gone down to 5.9% APR, but it looks like their final payment has gone up by £1k) To...
  15. I-pace lease deal (year 2019) / No longer available

    Jaguar I-PACE
    I lease a Leaf as our local runaround car. Car goes back to Nissan end of March next year. So I'm starting to think about alternatives. Getting a new 40 kwh Leaf is an option, but I don't think the current lease costs are currently competitive. So my options I thought were to buy an ex-demo 40...
  16. Replacement Tyres .. nightmare

    Volkswagen Passat GTE
    So my lease GTE Advance is close to need new front tyres. I've just passed 20k and expect perhaps another 1k before I hit the tread depth markers. As it's notoriously difficult to get any sensible quality tyres agreed by the lease company, anyone have any luck on getting what they want? I...
