David - a quick note to thank you for sorting out the X3.

The car arrived at 9:10 this morning, and Bernard Rooney followed up with a call to see if everything was ok.

I did not expect this level of service as we had not bought from you before, and I'm delighted.

Thanks for all your help over the months on sorting out the finance and spec on my X3 and June and John's X1.

Many companies spout about excellent customer service but few deliver like your company has.

Thanks again, Giles

First Vehicle Finance Ltd and David Linsdell (our Account Manager) have been an absolute pleasure to deal with. We needed a new pool car for our business and selected a Smart car. We received 3 quotes from lease hire companies (2 were on our network preferred supplier list) and First Vehicle had the best quote; significantly cheaper monthly costs, more choice of model and the best delivery date. The whole process has been efficient and extremely professional and we have been very impressed with the personal attention to detail displayed by David and First Vehicle. I would sincerely recommend them as the Vehicle Lease company of choice, and have urged our franchise network to adopt them as a preferred supplier.

Hi Richard

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

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.

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

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.

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 !

Tanja Kent

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 David,
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.

Angela Clarke

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.

Leasing a BMW i3 Review

Safety rating 4/5
MPG - 0
CO2 emissions - 0
First year road tax £0

The BMW i3 is a small electric car. Sadly, it’s expensive to buy however it is cheaper to lease a BMW i3!

leasing a bmw i3 review

If you are looking for an upmarket electric car that’s easy to drive around town and has a super stylish interior look no further than the BMW i3. While it comes with a hefty £35 000 price tag which is rather significant for a little car – one needs to be reminded of the other savings in the long run.

£0 road tax and no soaring petrol / diesel costs. In some London boroughs you even get free parking and at a whopping £25’s a day to park – that’s a bargain. But let’s not fret over the large price tag if you are buying this eco warrior (yes it is also CO2 zero rated and made from recycled plastic!). You are far better off leasing this vehicle for a fraction of the price. It was first launched in 2013 and upgraded in 2017 to include sportier bumpers, LED headlights and an upgraded infotainment system.

It comes with a high-resolution 10.2-inch screen with sat nav as standard. Upon sitting in the car the beautiful wooden dashboard trims and partial leather seats aren’t standard - however even without one of the upgraded packs, the i3’s cabin still looks plush and there’s plenty of space for you to get comfortable – even if you are really tall. For a little car you do not feel squashed or claustrophobic. The interior is very light and airy and there seems to be plenty space for a family of 4 plus a dog! The back seats feel less squashed than most little cars and this is due to the oddly shaped rear windows

Unfortunately, there is only enough space in the back for 2 seats. However, it is really easy to get in and out of the back seats as there is no centre pillar to get in the way and the back doors open up in reverse.

Sadly, it’s a strict four-seater and it’s boot isn’t particularly spacious. As a result, both the Renault Zoe and Nissan Leaf are more practical. You can get the i3 as a pure-electric car or with a petrol-powered range extender.

If you want to use your car mainly for in town pick the cheaper electric-only model. It doesn’t quite match the Renault Zoe in terms of safety. It earned a four-star score from Euro NCAP in 2013 compared to the Renault Zoe’s five-star rating in the same year.

However if you can live with 4 out of 5 for safety BMW’s i3 is a stylish small family car that’s worth considering if you mainly drive in town and have somewhere to charge it – bearing in mind you will need to install a charging station at home.

While it comes with a price tag of between £34 000 - £37 000 to buy - we suggest leasing. Your annual out lay will be much less than buying the vehicle. If after 24 – 36 month (terms and conditions apply) you do not like driving an eco-friendly futuristic car – simply bring it back after the agreed period and we can help you find a new one.
