Sorry no, I had been talking to guys at work and several have done it.

Its called a PCP.

You pay a deposit for the car (Ford up to 35% of the cars value.)

Then 36 monthly payments,.

Then at the end you have 3 options, 1. pay the remaining balance, 2. give the car back, 3. they take the value of the car away from what you owe and put that towards a deposit for another car.

The guys at work say they normally contact you after 2 years to see if you want to upgrade, if you do point 3 above applies.

If they have the car you want in stock (in my case Gent in Belgium) it can take up to 38 days, but if the specs you want are not in stock and the car needs building it can longer (I was told upto 4 months)

A couple of new fountain pens (I need to stop buying em)

Pilot Custom Heritage 92 which is a piston filler with 14K nib

I have 3 Parker 25's, one dates back to 1983. I used it at school.

When I win the lotto I'll buy one of these for the hell of it.

Blimey I still have my Parker 25 too, from primary school. We were allowed to use fountain pens as a reward for mastering cursive. It has the aerometric converter and hasn't been inked up for years so I wouldn't fancy trying to fill It without fitting a new one. I think it's the proprietary Parker fitting mind.

Not keen on Montblanc pens mainly because for the price you're getting nothing special in terms of materials. Check out the Namiki Maki-e or Urushi lacquer pens. You're actually getting something precious and unique for your 4 figures and I find that the Jap nibs are far superior on the whole.

Precisely, and I can't even have the Crunchies because of my diet, but it keeps him sweet.

Re: What have you just bought?

As My Xbox One died I bought a new console

1TB Xbox One S (Gears of War 4)

It came with 4 additional games. (Ryse, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Rare Replay) This was £260

I bought another copy of TC GR Wildlands $45

Additionally I bought my nephew a second control as it was £10 off so £45

I was charged £312, apparently I got Wildlands free.

Unbundled price for the above was £537, so saved £226.
