Very smooth and easy way to obtain my new Mini Clubvan. I received updates from Stacey Howlett and Jon from Mini at every stage, including after sales care.

Mr Stephen Bass, Grays

Digital Healthcare have used Howlett Leasing since October 2004. We have always found them to be very competitive on price, friendly and helpful to deal with and excellent at providing the service required in a very short space of time! Having challenged them twice this year I have been extremely pleased with every aspect of the service provided. This being my first experience of arranging new lease vehicles I would recommend Howlett's to anyone.

J Witts, Digital Healthcare, Cambridge

This is my second personal lease from Howlett Leasing. Stacey searched endlessly for the best deal for me and ensured I got the car I wanted at a price I can afford. I highly recommend personal leasing - cars lose their value so quickly, leasing takes this into account and allows me to pay less than I would on a bank loan and get a brand new car every 2 or 3 years. Thank you once again Stacey and team.

Jeanna Suckling, Norfolk

I have just taken delivery of a new Peugeot 208 Allure from Howlett Leasing on a Personal Contract Hire. It is the first time I have ever had a top-of-the-range car, and still trying to master everything on the touch-screen.

Am delighted with the car, and thank you to Stacey who was so patient with me as I changed my mind again and again, then didn't send the right forms, but we got there in the end. Nothing was too much trouble for Stacey as she re-calculated three times, but it was all worth it in the end.

Mr Eric Britt, Huntingdon, Cambs

I have had my car now for 2 weeks and I absolutely love it. Thanks so much to Stacey for finding the right car at the right price and for making the whole process so easy. I can't recommend Stacey highly enough

Jane Gaynor, Suffolk

'This was my first car with Stacey. Service was great we discussed my requirements and budget and Stacey managed to produce exactly what I wanted. Would definitely recommend'

On the 14th March Mr and Mrs Wong from Essex Digital Copiers, based in South Woodham Ferrers, Chelmsford, took delivery of their brand new Mazda CX-5. This is the second Mazda they have ordered from us, not only did we supply them with their new vehicle, but also gave them a better price on their part exchange than they had already been offered. This is what they had to say:-

Essex Digital Copiers, Chelmsford

Excellent customer service and an excellent car at an excellent price!

Steven Rhodes, Bishops Stortford

Having leased a car previously from Howlett, I did not hesitate to approach Stacey when I considered a replacement under similar terms. I also approached three main dealers who were quite aloof in dealing with me. Howlett Leasing offered better terms, and Stacey dealt directly with a main dealer on my behalf. I will return to Howlett Leasing when this car needs replacing. I recommend Howlett Leasing for great service.

'I approached Howlett Leasing (Stacey) to supply a vehicle for a project I was managing. I wanted a local and trustworthy business that came with great reviews and recommendations. I wasn’t disappointed, Stacey helped select, source and manage our delivery especially with a tight timeframe. I would highly recommend Stacey and her team in any business or personnel hire.'

Audi RS5 Sportback and Coupe ‘Audi Sport Editions’ revealed

The Audi RS5 has returned to Audi’s model line-up and is now available as a coupe and a new five-door Sportback version for the first time. Both will initially be sold in a special Audi Sport Edition trim level and just 250 of each model will be available in 2019. The cars are available to buy now for £68,985, with first deliveries scheduled for the end of June.

The Audi RS5 Coupe and RS5 Sportback use the same 2.9-litre twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine. It produces 444bhp and is combined with quattro all-wheel-drive, which catapults the cars from 0-62mph in 3.9 seconds. An eight-speed tiptronic automatic gearbox is the only one available.

Unlike Audi’s other recently revealed performance models, the RS5 Coupe and Sportback don’t feature mild-hybrid technology or a diesel engine. Audi claims up to 30.1mpg for the Coupe and 29.7mpg for the Sportback in mixed driving, while CO2 emissions are 213-215g/km. In the RS5 models, the all-wheel-drive system distributes 40% of power to the front wheels and 60% to the rear wheels, and it’s able to measure power to each rear wheel to maximise grip and handling ability. The five-link front suspension is joined by a rear setup that’s unique to RS models, and there are four different driving modes consisting of Comfort, Auto, Dynamic and Individual.

Both cars are now exclusively available in a new Audi Sport Edition trim level, which adds 20-inch alloy wheels, tinted rear windows, gloss-black exterior trim pieces and an Audi Sport exhaust system. The Audi Sport Edition models will only be available this year; when the RS5 enters a normal production run in 2020, the cars will come in standard RS spec.

The RS sports seats are trimmed in a combination of Nappa leather and Alcantara suede fabric with contrasting diamond stitching. Both RS models are well equipped, with a panoramic glass sunroof, full LED lights, a digital instrument cluster (called Virtual Cockpit), Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Audi’s Parking System Plus. Blindspot warning is fitted as standard, too. While it’s marginally less economical, the five-door Sportback is more practical thanks to its rear doors. Behind the 40:20:40 split-folding rear seats is a slightly larger 480-litre boot too (the Coupe has 465 litres), with a metre-wide boot opening. When you need to carry more cargo, folding the seats down frees up to 1,300 litres of space.
