Hi Stuart Masson TCE, I find myself in a slightly confusing situation, 11 months ago I part exchanged my BMW X3 in for a New X4 from a BMW main dealer.
the deal at the time was a PCP Lease of which my X3 made up for £14k of the purchase price of the new car. I told the salesperson my average mileage was around 10 to 12k per year, but when I got the paper work he had changed this to 8k. when I asked him he said to get the monthly figure to where I wanted it to be he’d changed it, and not to worry about the extra mileage and go and enjoy the car!
now after 11 months I find that the X4 is not the car for me and want to change it for an X3, but perhaps change over to a Hire Purchase agreement from PCP, how do I stand on this change over?

Hi Paul. If you have had the car for less than a year, the chances are you will have a substantial amount of negative equity. So you will probably need a few thousand pounds to clear that before you can even start to think about your next car. For more information, have a read of our article on settling your PCP early.
A hire purchase will cost you considerably more per month because you are paying off the whole car instead of just the predicted depreciation.
