Think they ignore the mileage clause if you trade up after 3 yrs?

£2500 down, BMW chuck in another £500 to make £3k down
Free BMW Nav 6 Sat Nav this week worth £500-£600 (sell on eBay)
£6000 final payment
4000 miles pa
To cover final payment I will keep £4K from a recent bike sale in a bond for 3 years
Initial £2500 deposit comes from bike sale monies too
So only costing me the rental
We buy things we don't need



With money we don't have



To impress people we don't even like

Tip to re-ignite the flame..

Sell everything including the shed, then just wait, the body will go into toxic shock.

Johnny, sounds like your spirit of adventure needs a boost.
Forget those hipster bikes.....
Get yourself a CCMGP450 or a nice new BMW GS850.
Get on a ferry and head out on the small roads to the Balkans or down through France to Spain/Portugal.

He's got all the bikes he needs to do that already

Reality is that if you hand it back after 3 years it is going to cost you:-
£2500 deposit plus £3240 rental so a total of £5740 or £160 a month
Open your eyes and you see what is in front of you but open your mind and you see a whole new World

Plus £6000 final payment = £11740 total cost, which doesn’t seem too bad to me. How much would it cost with normal finance deal?
