Company Car Choice - Sensible Head On

32 posts in this topic

What about an X1? They are far better inside, the X1 / 2 Series interior is better than the 3 series inside for me. 

Just a though if you wanted to go BMW that is. 

As Scotty says its all a case of what you want, I can entirely see that an Audi would tick more boxes as a company car than an ageing in cycle BMW. +++

You don't buy a 3 series for the interior and you don't buy an A4 for the handling characteristics.

Horses for courses +++

Both good points & both well put.

Well - things have got interesting for 2 reasons. 

1: The Volvo has been delivered, they've sent me a V40 instead of a V60. It's parked on my drive alongside next door's V40 that they've had for 4 years so that's not much help. It drives pretty well but the interior is gash, like a 90's Merc with the number of buttons and it is the least intuitive system ever. Am sure that the new one will be great when it comes but that's not the one on the list so it's definitely out. 

2: So an Audi A4 Avant in sport spec then? Not quite . . . Remember that restructure I mentioned that might start soon - consultation period started last week. So come September I'll either be promoted or redundant! If promoted then I'll get a fresh look at the car list with a higher allowance (or see what's in the pool from the leavers first of all if I wish).

Even if I ordered a car right now it wouldn't go through so more time to see what's what. 

With regard to jobs, I'm reasonably confident in the promotion option but am trying to get a job externally as I could then take a pretty generous redundancy package too ;)

Is there not a C Class on the list? 

Personally I feel they do the whole package so much better than the rest currently. 

There was a some silly cheap deals on the hybrids, 9% tax too. 

 

But the C200 petrol is a peach, if not C220d is fine.
