PCP (Personal Contract Purchase)
PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) a simple cost effective way to buy your new or nearly new vehicle.
You choose the vehicle, the deposit, how long you want the contract to run for and the mileage you intend to do. You will then receive a quote for fixed cost motoring for the length of the contract. At the end of the contract you have a choice to either buy the vehicle outright for an agreed lump sum (the Guaranteed Minimum Future Value or final balloon payment), or hand the vehicle back to the lender.

Hire Purchase allows you to take ownership of a vehicle once all payments are made.
This is one of the most popular methods to buy a new vehicle. You pay an initial deposit, then pay off the balance in monthly payments over an agreed period of time, when the payments are complete the vehicle is yours.
One of the main benefits with Hire Purchase is the ability to buy a high value vehicle on monthly payments.
Hire Purchase allows you to tailor your finance package as deposit, length of time and monthly payments are all flexible.

Personal contract hire is very similar to normal contract hire, but is exclusively for private individuals. This is one of the most common form of leasing.
With a personal contract hire agreement you take control of a vehicle for a contractual period – usually referred to as the ‘lease period’. You will make fixed monthly payments for the duration of the contract – when the contract expires you will simply return the vehicle and take out a new personal contract hire lease. PCH means you never have to worry about resale values of your vehicle.

Road Tax is based upon the CO2 emissions of the vehicle and is split into 13 bands from A to M. The higher the letter the greater the cost of tax paid to drive the vehicle on public roads. In addition to the road tax detailed below, any vehicle that had a manufacturers retail price in excess of £40,000 when first sold, attracts a road tax supplement of an additional £310 per year. This is charged until the vehicle is 6 years old.
Ten Second Review
The Volkswagen Golf R is back, this time trying to face down some serious competition. It's come equipped though, packing all wheel drive and an uprated 310PS output that sees 62mph flash by in under 5 seconds. It'll also register better than 40mpg on the combined cycle. Your everyday supercar is right here. There's now even a desirable 'Performance Pack' option.
The GTI might be the definitive sporty Golf but there are those for whom even this iconic sports hatch doesn't quite deliver the goods. They want more. More grip, more speed, more presence, just more. The thing is, the market for exactly this sort of thing has been turned on its head by cars like BMW's M140i. Here's a car that delivers more. 340PS to be exact, and offers a premium badge in the process for less than £33,000. Volkswagen needed to respond and deliver a vehicle that could put the upstart M140i in its place. The GTI can't do that, even in its uprated 245PS 'Performance Pack' guise. But here's a Golf that can. The recently upgraded Golf R model, which now packs a 310PS punch and, unlike the BMW, has standard AWD. All for prices that start at around £32,000. Wolfsburg has hit back and hard. Go for the DSG version and you get the option of a 'Performance Pack' with uprated brakes and larger wheels, plus you can now specify a bespoke sports exhaust.
That 310PS power output is the headline number as far as the Golf R is concerned but delve a little deeper and you'll find some other facts that might stop you in your tracks. In manual form it gets to 62mph in just over 5 seconds, but unleash its potential with a DSG twin-clutch sequential transmission and you can expect a few tenths to be shaved from that benchmark. Power is delivered through a quick-reacting Haldex all-wheel drive system, which sends drive to the front wheels during modest throttle loads, but can then direct almost 100 per cent of drive to the rear axle if required. Top speed is limited to 155mph. The ride height is 20mm lower than the standard Golf's and 5mm lower than the GTI's, while Adaptive Chassis Control (DCC) is an option. This offers a 'Race' mode, which increases damping, reducing body movements in the process. In conjunction with the 'Driver Profile' selector, 'Race' mode also further sharpens the throttle response and alters the shift pattern of the DSG gearbox.
Design and Build
Apart from that hoovered-to-the-tarmac ride height, the Golf R is distinguished by its revised front bumper assembly, indented with massive air inlets, a modified radiator grille with 'R' logo and daytime running lamps that are integrated into the now standard LED headlights, these part of a subtly re-styled front end. Move round to the side and you'll clock the aggressive body-colour sills and matt chrome-capped door mirrors. The R comes as standard with a tasty set of 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 225/40 tyres, but the optional 19-inch alloys are sure to be a popular fit. The brakes are ventilated discs all round, measuring 30mm by 340mm at the front and 22mm by 310mm at the back. A big part of the Golf VII design process was a determined weight loss plan and the R benefits from this. Its kerb weight of just under 1.5-tonnes might seem quite hefty for a family hatch sized car but factor in the all-wheel drive transmission and it doesn't seem quite so bad. The interior features cloth sports seats with Alcantara bolsters, with leather upholstery available as an option, while the instrument dials are unique to the R and include some smart touches such as blue needles.
Market and Model
The base sub-£33,000 asking price nets you a manual Golf R three-door. You'll pay another £650-odd if you want a five-door, while DSG transmissions tack another £1,400 onto those prices. There's also a Golf R Estate model, though for that, you'll need a £35,000 budget. All variants come with air-conditioning, a Driver Alert system, seven airbags, including a driver's knee bag, five three-point seat belts, ABS with ESP, XDS electronic differential lock and ISOFIX preparation for two rear child seats. Go for the DSG version and your dealer will offer you the option of an extra cost 'Performance Pack'. This gives you larger 19-inch 'Spielberg' alloy wheels, an uprated 'R-Performance' braking system, a de-restriced top speed and, on the hatch version, an extra rear spoiler lip that adds a useful 20kg of downforce at high speeds. With all Golf R models, there's also the option of a bespoke sports titanium exhaust package that produces a rortier engine note. It'll add nearly £3,000 to the asking price though.
Cost of Ownership
Granted, you don't buy a car like the Volkswagen Golf R to wow your friends with its environmental credentials, but it's hard not to be impressed with a combined fuel consumption of 37.7mpg for the manual car or 40.9mpg if you spring for the DSG transmission. Likewise, emissions are also very good, registering 180g/km for the manual and 160g/km for the DSG. That's for a 3-door model. That's one area where the Golf R scores a decisive advantage over the BMW M140i, which features a 3.0-litre six-cylinder lump up front that the Munich company does very well to massage down to 179g/km and up to 36.2mpg.
