After leasing my first vehicle from Stacey a Ford Transit Custom for work, i was keen to upgrade the family car too. This ticked all the boxes spec wise and power wise, even more impressed with the size of the boot considering its a saloon. Im really happy with the automatic, having never owned one before i was slightly anxious about having an auto but im very happy i made the switch. We took out a 2 year PCH on 8,000 miles per year, which i think will be tight but its reassuring that we can change that if we think we will go over. I look forward to leasing our next vehicle again in 2 years time.

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.

I've had 20+ years of experience of using Howletts and Howlett Leasing. The personal, family service is second to none and both the offer, pricing and support is excellent. I would never hesitate to recommend Stacey and Howlett Leasing - no matter your vehicle or funding requirements...

Stacey at Howlett Leasing was brilliant from start to finish. Having never leased a car before she answered all my questions and provided good, practical advice. The process was extremely quick and painless, most of the paperwork was dealt with via email and I only had to visit the office to sign the final documents. My car was ordered on a Tuesday and I took delivery the Thursday of the following week.

I am extremely pleased with my Skoda Octavia 1.6D SE and the deal that Stacey put together for me. I would advise anyone looking for a family car with all the luxuries and extra's of more expensive cars, a huge boot, very economical and great styling, to consider an Octavia. I will definitely be using Stacey again and would be happy to recommend her excellent service to anyone.

Just leased my second car from Stacey at Howlett Leasing. Great customer service and all of my questions were answered quickly. Great to be able to deal with one person throughout the entire transaction, would recommend to anyone considering leasing.

Fantastic Service

'What an amazing service from start to finish with Stacey. With our existing lease coming to an end, a timely email from Howlett Leasing got the ball rolling. Stacey moved heaven and earth to find our Golf. The price was perfect and the paperwork process a breeze. All down to her sterling efforts. I really can’t recommend Howlett Leasing highly enough. Thanks Stacey.'

Tesla Model 3 prices raised across the range

The American EV manufacturer has restructured the pricing of its entry- level model again, increasing the prices of all three variantsTesla has raised the price of the Model 3, in the car’s third price-change in the last six months. Prices for the base-model Standard Range Plus and mid-tier Long Range variant have increased by roughly £1,000 to £38,500 and £47,000 respectively. The flagship Model 3 Performance has increased by around £2,000 to £52,000.

The Model 3 Long Range features two electric motors and all-wheel drive. Range and top speed increases to 348 miles and 145mph respectively, while its 0–60mph time falls to 4.4 seconds in comparison to the base-model. The Performance variant offers a 0–60mph sprint of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 163mph, although its range is reduced to 329 miles.

Long Range variants come with heated front and rear seats, a premium 14-speaker sound system and Tesla’s premium connectivity update, adding an internet browser, satellite maps and live traffic visualisation. Performance-spec cars come with unique 20-inch alloy wheels, lowered suspension, better brakes and a carbon fibre lip spoiler for the boot.

All versions come with Tesla’s Autopilot system as standard, allowing the Model 3 to steer, accelerate and brake automatically within its lane on motorways and dual carriageways. Tesla’s Full Self-Driving Capability is available for £5,800 and adds automatic parking, lane changing and motorway driving, as well as a summon function which allows parked Model 3s to automatically find their owners in car parks.

Elon Musk, the firm’s CEO, stresses that even full self-driving mode requires driver supervision, and that Tesla needs development work running to "billions of miles if not 10s of billions before supervision is not required." Even then, legislation would need to change to allow full autonomy on public roads. As well as the existing Summon and Autopark features (which allow the car drive itself to find its owner and park itself respectively), the Model 3 will have traffic light recognition and auto driving on city streets by the end of 2019.

All future Tesla sales to be onlineThis latest pricing announcement follows Tesla’s recent confirmation that all its future car sales will be online only. The firm’s CEO, Elon Musk, outlined his plans to convert his company’s dealerships into information and advice centres, while claiming that customers should be able to spec and order a car from their smartphone in “around a minute.” Musk conceded that this decision would result in the closure of some dealerships. “Some stores will close and there will be a reduction in headcount - there’s no question about that,” he said
