I was looking for a particular specification Citroen C4 Grand Picasso that met my business and personal needs whilst being both tax and fuel efficient.
Stacey found the exact model quickly at a good price with minimum effort on my part and, best of all, her efforts prevented me having to deal with the main dealer network! Thoroughly recommended.

When we changed our family car earlier this year we leased it through Stacey at Howletts. This was our first lease and we were a bit worried that it would be complicated and time consuming but Stacey's professional approach and efficient manner in dealing with our questions meant that it was quick and easy and in no time we had our new car and a good price for our old one.
In fact it went so well that I decided to change my Mini for an Audi TT. This time Stacey was set a bigger challenge. There was a long lead in time for the model that I first chose and I just could not wait that long. I was close to giving up and keeping the Mini but Stacey was determined to get me my car in the timeframe I had and she worked magic behind the scenes, e mailing at weekends and evenings with options and even while she was on holiday until in no time at all I had my fabulous TT Quattro Coupe. I would recommend Howletts for leasing and for trade in. Fair prices, friendly personal service and great aftercare.

Yet again an outstanding experience from Howlett Leasing. Stacey Howlett provides an excellent service from start to finish and ensures that every aspect of leasing a car from her company is seamless and problem free. This is my 2nd vehicle leased through them and I will most certainly be using them when my other existing leases are up for renewal as I am much more impressed with the standard of customer satisfaction received then with my other lease provider.

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
I choose the car partly on the recommendation of Stacey Howlett. You get a lot of car for the monthly fee.
Dealing with Howlett's was so easy, everything was done for us. Already being an existing client made the financial check even easier.

This is Mollymaid's 3rd vehicle from us.
The perfect company!
After spending an age to find company that would do a decent deal I was advised to check out Howlett leasing. Stacey got me and absolute bargain on the car we where looking for (no one else was any way near her price). She was so helpful throughout the whole process.
When the lease is up and it’s time for a new car I won’t need to waste any time looking for another company as this is the company to come to for a great deal.
Would recommend to anyone and everyone.
Stacey provides a personal, high quality service which suits me just nicely. I had known her for several years in a local business club. But it was my son who, unbeknown to me had been searching for a car that suited me (I have orthopaedic problems which made simple thing such as putting luggage in the boot, awkward).
So when he came upon a Skoda Yeti on her web site, at a price which was most competitive, I agree to change my old car in favour of a Yeti.
I have been running it for a year now, and am most pleased
I can honestly and with great pleasure, recommend Howlett Leasing.

I couldn't be happier with the service that I have received from Howlett Leasing. Stacey made the process of getting the car exciting and so simple. She was able to get me an excellent price for exactly what I needed and kept me updated throughout the whole process. Excellent service and I would definitely recommended.

There’s something especially heartbreaking about a beautiful concept car that never gets a chance to see the light of day. Especially one that looks like the super sick car in Blade Runner 2049. That’s right. I’m looking at you, 1972 Maserati Boomerang. Yes, yes, I know its initial intention was to be a show car for the 1971 Turin Auto Show. It was designed by Giorgetto Giugiario, after all, a man known for his incredible concept car designs that never saw more than one model made. At its first appearance, it was basically running entirely stripped out. It was a car in name only, since it didn’t have an engine or any of the necessary components to make a car go, aside from tyres. But people were into it. People wanted to see this wedge-shaped work of art hitting the road, not just the the showroom floor. After all, cars that look nice are only half the fun. Maserati listened to the demand. They nabbed a 310 hp 4.7 liter V-8 engine out of a Maserati Bora and popped it into the sleek Boomerang just in time for the 1972 Geneva auto show. This car is composed of sharp angles and wedge shapes that went on to dominate sports cars for the rest of the decade—especially in Guigiario’s work.
The Boomerang recently sold for $3.7 million. The dark leather seats are gorgeous and a selling point all of their own—but all the dashboard instruments are contained in the center of the steering wheel. As with most fancy special cars, it has changed hands a few times. It was sold at the 1972 Barcelona show until 1980, when a German Maserati enthusiast bought it. It had fallen into some disrepair there, and after ten years of restoration it made a showing at Paris. Giugiario was involved in this one, and he added his signature to the rear panel. In 2002, it was re-sold and refurbished again, since the owner decided he wanted to make it road ready. It’s pretty damn rare to keep track of a one-off prototype after it starts making its way through private sellers—and it’s even rarer to have it remain in such good condition.
