    You drive more than 30k a year? If so this ain’t for you. Want to get the most bang for the buck? Don’t pick the $65k vehicles. Stick with the S450 or something. The price includes full detail washes too.
    30K is the base 2500$ a month.... 10K would be for 10,000 kms, which is about what I would expect for light driving. So 40K a year annually.

    30K in mileage would be like 60,000$ a year, you might as well just buy the car and then burn it at the end of the year with rates like that

    yeah you could get the more expensive cars, but wouldn't everybody using the service be doing that? I just feel like you'd go in and get shut down when you wanted to switch over to something else with companies like this.

    $2499 comes with 2500km per month so $30k a year comes with 30,000kms a year. The $1 per km is if you go over that.

    that makes it a bit of a better deal

    I see this being very popular for rich students coming here for school or temporary residents. Drive semi-baller different cars with no commitment and hassle after. When you're done, you just drop it off and peace.
    Pretty good idea and price isn't that bad. Also if you're space limited, it's a good opportunity to drive both small and large cars at the same time since you can flip it. If they had a truck option, that would be even better as you can use it to haul stuff

    Definitely see it working well in Vancouver; not too sure about Calgary.

    Someone should start one in Calgary for lifted 4x4's. Perfect for rig workers who aren't home 1/2 the time.

    I can only speak for myself and guys I work/worked with but those trucks would be a fucking crime scene disaster after 6 months, if that.

    Buying most supercars you will barely lose $25k/year from depreciation and other expenses. Buy the right ones and you wont lose a dime. Sounds like a rip off.

    Never owned one but isn’t that what they are notorious for? I’ll bet many of them need one if you are putting 30k on in a year lol

    5 seconds of google foo says 15k and 30k (miles) on an f430 so that’s at least one a year with that mileage.

    I was just being cheeky... Ferraris haven't needed belts since the 360s (even though you didn't need to take the engine "out" to do the service).

    I assumed BB's post was referring to new(er) supercars not (necessarily) depreciating $25k / year... And the new(er) Ferraris don't require an engine out service. In fact, routine maintenance is included...

    What stops somebody from hogging the Q8, Velar and S450s?

    Those are definitely better bang for bucks than SQ5 or GLE if you are paying for the same price.

    People keep talking about bang for buck, or trying to compare the value between having this service or just purchasing a vehicle. Clearly they do not understand the point of this.

    It's a LUXURY service. It's not a value buy. The fact that not everyone wants to drive a gigantic behemoth of a vehicle should sort out anyone hogging the big vehicles. People aren't purchasing this service and then saying to themselves "How am I going to extrude every dollar of value I can get out of this?" They're going to grab whatever the heck looks nice that day, or suits their needs for the time being.

    So just the Q8, the RR, and the S class then

    I mentioned it in the Porsche service thread, but for those that maintain 2 cars here (one for winter and one for summer) this is way cheaper.

    Depends what your winter and summer cars are. Sure, if you buy brand new cars at MSRP that depreciate like rocks and have tons of issues with them it might be. Find slightly used cars that don't tend to depreciate as much and you should never end up seeing over $25k/year go out the window with depreciation and maintenance.

    I like the idea, but that is a REALLY weak fleet offering and there aren't even any real performance cars other than the base model Cayman, which is great but pretty low-tier in the world of exclusive sports cars. No big AMG's, M, or RS models. And base model for the S-class wtf haha. I feel like if people were so loaded they had money to burn for something like this, they wouldn't want such mediocre (relatively speaking) cars.
