    Default New job dilemma...

    I was headhunted a few days ago, an old colleague from a previous company had a job opportunity that to be honest is too good to turn down.

    ...problem is it comes with a company car. What problem you say? ...well I'm only two months into a three year finance deal on my Veccy, so getting rid of it now would cost me a pretty penny or two (having to repay the interest etc)

    I can take the cash option (approx 4K+) which sounds good, just hope the Veccy will do me right in the coming years as I notch up the business miles!

    David,

    I settled my Vectra 5 months in to a 5 years Deal, and i paid back only £1100 more than i paid for the car. The earlier you settle it the better the price is GE told me.

    ...really? I got a finance deal for £6500, I anticipated being skanked royal style settling the finance at such an early stage.

    I love the Vectra, I really do, but I see the company car option as being much more financially viable.

    Keep your car, business mileage @ 40p per mile plus an allowance is way better than a company car,

    chance are it will be a 1.9 105ps A3, not as nice to drive as the Vectra
