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 Received my Volvo V40 R Design today and could not be happier. The car has more than met my expectations, but just as important the service from you has been impeccable throughout. From the initial very competitive quote, all the way through to the delivery today was a pleasure that I could not fault in any way. Keep up the exceptional work, Thanks a lot.
I first engaged with Chris Fairchild back in 2014 and have found him to be of great assistance, honourable and a thoroughly good person to deal with. My last 2 cars have been via Chris and I am sure many more will follow. It is with great delight I endorse his work and cannot recommend him highly enough.
Took delivery of the car yesterday - I love it.
I wanted to thank you for everything that you did. The process was very smooth and as always communication was excellent. I should also mention Juliet who was extremely helpful and responsive.
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.
I had dealt with First Vehicle Finance before and on both occasions I have found the service to be excellent. They listen to the requirements and deliver.
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.
My truck back has now had the top installed. I can honestly say it's now my favourite car I've owned (over my RS5)
And I can't thank you enough for your hard and consistent service you've offered me. Please don't change your ways. You're a great company to deal with. Hats off to Will for battling hard for my custom. I wasn't an easy client.
Will be in touch in the next month for another truck and van

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.
Helpful and friendly team of people. We have been using First Finance for a number of years now and would highly recommend them.
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.
