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.

Will Chan

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.

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!

Alex Mayle

I am would just like to say thank you to First Vehicle Finance for organising my new car that arrived this week.

This is now the second car I have had from you and on both occasions, I found Will and Rob to be professional and efficient in the way that they dealt with my order.

I will continue to recommend your service to my friends, family and colleagues in the future.

Vicki Brett

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.

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.

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

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.

Adrian Orton

leasing a bmw x4 review

Now if you want an understated car that does not attract much attention, the BMW X4 is not the car you are looking for !

Like Brexit or Marmite there are opposing points of view on the BMW X4. But no matter what you think of the X4’s SUV-cum-coupé look, BMW certainly ensures it stands out. But if you’re unsure – do not buy this car but lease it! Lease it for 24 – 36 months and if you don’t like it after that time simply hand it back (terms and conditions apply). But we doubt you will be!

Driving BMW X4
The BMW X4 is an even better drive than the already impressive BMW X3, BMW has firmed up the suspension and pushed the rear wheels farther apart. As a result it handles remarkably well for such a tall car, turning into corners swiftly and suffering from little body lean. It is true that a Porsche Macan has more communicative steering, but the BMW X4’s still offers plenty of reassurance. The X4 is also good at absorbing bumps and potholes. BMW X4 Interior The elevated driving position that attracts many people to SUVs is done well in the X4.

While BMW does charge extra for adjustable lumbar support, this is a relatively cheap option and one we’d definitely recommend adding.

By contrast, rear parking sensors and a reversing camera are standard across the range. And they’re welcome, given the big blindspots created by the steep angle of the rear window and the thick pillars surrounding it.

Space & practicality of BMW X4
The front is very spacious and there is plenty leg room in the back even for a 6-foot man, however due to the plunging roof line a 6-footer will have to slouch in the rear seat or sit with their heads pushed up against the roof lining. It is a squeeze to get 3 people in the back due to the narrow central rear seat. And the rear door openings are a little on the small side, so getting in and out could be easier.

On the other hand, the well-shaped boot is big enough to swallow several large suitcases with ease, while the rear seats lie flat when folded down to make it easy to load longer items.

Verdict

It’s looks are as divisive as it’s very proposition but getting noticed is part of its job and the new X4 certainly does that.

The BMW X4 is a prime example of ‘have your cake and eat it’. It’s fast but frugal, practical yet aesthetically stylish to the eye – and, sometimes, trying to cram a load of conflicting characteristics into one product can lead to a severely compromised result. But to drive the new X4 is to understand it. As SUVs go, no matter what their exterior shape, this BMW is one of the most rewarding to steer.

While it comes with a price tag of between £45 000 - £50 000 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 such an opulent – stand out car, simply bring it back and we can help you find a new one.
