During the past ten years Howlett Leasing have arranged the supply and lease of our fleet of Ford Rangers and Transits. They have always provided a first class personal service, 'Second to none' and do their utmost to deliver those requirements.

I have no hesitation in recommending Howlett Leasing.

Mr John Perry, Heathrow Hydrant, London

We were new to leasing and Stacey helped us through every step. Should we require any more vehicles in the future our first stop will be Howlett Leasing. 1st Class service.

Mr Ed Bilbow, Worldwide Shipping Solutio

'The passion and the process of leasing my Mercedes CLS is as much of an experience as a walk amongst the supercars in a showroom!
'Thanks again, and see you next time...!'

Tracy Dolan

'I've used Stacey at Howlett leasing for a couple of cars, We went to the dealership 1st and he tried to keep us there!! and was about £60 more expensive than the quote Howlett had quoted. Would highly recomend their service, quick easy and painless '

Jess Reynolds, Colchester

I've been happy with the service from Howlett Leasing, I now have 2 vehicles from them and would use their services again in the future.

Ade Ademola, Ade's Decorating, Herts

'Being a small business owner myself, when I needed a new car I wanted to use a local Company to support the local community. Having met Stacey at a networking event it was an easy choice and the friendly and very efficient service combined to make it a first class decision - also taking my personalised number plate was easy. A great deal, with great service at a very competitive price - what more could you ask for - other than of douse hot sunny weather like today to enjoy the Cabriolet!'

Great service...
I was recommended to Howlett Leasing and I was impressed with the whole experience from start to finish. Stacey is efficient quoting on the exact
vehicle spec I asked for and at the best price. Communication was spot on and the vehicle delivered on time. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Stacey to anyone looking for cars or commercial vehicles.

Paul Browne, Kent

'Stacey is brilliant, always comes back to you really quickly, doesn’t promise what she can’t deliver and commend her for that. Just taken out another lease on a new car and changeover seamless and love the new car.'

Carol Schleip, IPSWICH

David Blundell Electrical from Colchester, Essex, recently took delivery of his brand new Vauxhall Corsa 1.3 CDti SX on a Business Contract Hire agreement, David said .... 'Why can't everything be as simple as this? An easy to use service, very straightforward, just how I like it with just a few forms to complete. I am very pleased with the car, it was the right car at the right price with a good mpg and easy to park'.

David Blundell Electrical, Colchester

'I absolutely love the car – it’s a beautiful drive.
I really appreciate all your help – it was a great service and so easy. Thanks for the free gift – very useful.'

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.
