The car arrived today and I just want to say 'thank you' for your work and your support in getting it to me ready for my move on Saturday. You made it very easy for me and gave me confidence throughout that it was all under control.
I really appreciate you doing all of this and wish you a great Easter weekend.
All the very best
First Vehicle Finance Ltd and Richard couldn't have been more helpful. My wife had a very specific car in mind and a set monthly budget and Richard took a great deal of time in helping to explain all of the finance options, helping every step of the way in making sure we got our perfect car and under budget! The process was made very easy and the service was fantastic to the extent that I am now looking to finance a car for myself with First Vehicle! Highly recommend!
I have used First Vehicle Finance a few times now, I would never go anywhere else. They are extremely professional, understand customer needs and very competitive in price. David has been fantastic as always and always follows up on after sales care. I would highly recommend them.
Hi Will I am currently out the country working, I have been in regular contact with my wife she told me that the transfer of the vehicles went down without a hitch, unfortunately I was in Iraq when this all happened so as yet I have not seen the car in the flesh, but I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help from start to finish of the process, I had a good experience the first time I dealt with you and have had another flawless experience this time and I look forward to dealing with you again in another 3 years thanks agaim Will.
Will kept my details on file and contacted me as soon as a deal became available on a car closest to my specification. After that, the whole process was pain free.
We needed a new family car quickly! Knowing we would need a new one in 2 years time we decided to lease one! First Vehicle finance was recommended to us by a friend and the recommendation was spot on! What amazing service and we got our new Audi Q5 at an even higher spec than we expected! Awesome !
Had a great experience with First Vehicle Finance. I wasn’t really sure what I wanted in terms of payment options, all I knew was that I wanted a new car! This was my first experience in financing a car, so obviously a bit apprehensive about what I was getting myself into. But Will was really helpful in explaining the different finance options they have to offer. I learned of the different payment profiles, monthly instalments, leasing contracts, all down to the nitty gritty. After this, I decided to go with FVF. The process was really easy, straightforward, and if I had question, they were more than happy to help, and quickly. Then I learned they deliver your car free of charge! Which saved me arranging a ride to the garage to collect :) All in all, great service and would recommend to family and friends.
First class service received from David and the Team at First Vehicle Finance. You have made the process of arranging our lease plan so straight forward and easy to understand. Thank you so much for all your help. We are delighted with our new car. Kind Regards Dermot Kavanagh
I am a company car user and have 2 cars with First Finance and regularly speak to Richard Mayle and Juliet via email,in the last few weeks I purchased a car for my wife, very happy with the car everything from start to finish happened so easily and efficiently. Fantastic service.
I would like to thank Chris Fairchild and Juliet Whitmore for their efficient and friendly service. Their experience and care showed, I now drive the car I wanted, within the budget I had in mind and am glad to say the whole process was painless. Many thanks and all the best! Will definitely recommend.
On a steep, off-road slope, the X5 xDrive’s standard Hill Descent Control allows you to creep down safely. The GLC doesn’t offer Hill Descent Control.When you lease a BMW X5 as an optional extra you can ask for is a passive infrared night vision system. This helps the driver to more easily detect people, animals or other objects in front of the vehicle at night. Using an infrared camera to detect heat, the system then displays the image on a monitor in the dashboard. The GLC doesn’t offer a night vision system.Both the X5 and the GLC have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, driver knee airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights, rearview cameras, available all-wheel drive, lane departure warning systems, blind spot warning systems, around view monitors and driver alert monitors.When leasing the BMW X5 it might be interesting to know that the BMW X5 is a heavy vehicle and heavier than the Mercedes GLC. It is advised that heavier vehicles are much safer in accidents than lighter vehicles.
Economy and RangeAfter testing the BMW X5 xDrive35d rated better on fuel mileage than the GLC 300 4MATIC .Regenerative brakes improve the X5’s fuel efficiency by converting inertia back into energy instead of wasting it. The GLC doesn’t offer a regenerative braking system.The X5 has 22 Litres more fuel capacity than the GLC making for much longer journey's in-between filling up.
Tyres and Wheels
The BMW X5 has larger standard tyres and hence has better traction – than compared to the Merc GLC. Due to the BMW X5's 19 inches wheels verses the GLC's 18 inches wheels the BMW X5 is a better drive and has better handling and brake cooling.
Suspension, Off Road and Handling
The X5 has an adjustable active suspension system, which counteracts cornering forces actively, limiting body roll and improving handling and stability. Mercedes doesn’t offer an active suspension on the GLC.The X5 is a smoother drive compared to the Merc GLC – this is due to the extra 2.4 inches on the wheelbase. The BMW X5 has a higher clearance off the ground by 1.5 inches, allowing the X5 to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.
The X5 has 2 extra seats in the back while the GLC doesn’t not have this capacity but can be added as an optional extra.
The X5’s cargo area provides more volume than the GLC.
When winter roles round and windscreens freeze over the X5 has heated windshield washer nozzles. These are standard on the X5 to prevent washer fluid and nozzles from freezing and help continue to keep the windshield clear in sub-freezing temperatures. Heated windshield washer nozzles can be added as at an extra cost when leasing the Mercedes GLC.To improve rear visibility by keeping the rear window clear, the BMW X5 has a standard rear variable intermittent wiper with a full on position. The rear wiper standard on the GLC only has an intermittent setting, so in a hard rain visibility isn’t as good.In poor weather, headlights can lose their effectiveness as grime builds up on their lenses. This can reduce visibility without the driver realizing. The X5 offers available headlight washers to keep headlight output high. The GLC doesn’t offer headlight washers.
We would recommend leasing both the BMW X5 and the Mercedes GLC, based on reliability, safety and performance.In 2017 The BMW X5 was a more popular car choice amoungst those that lease and leased the Mercedes GLC by 10% during the 2017 model year.
