I agree 100% Korman.

I am from Europe too and have some 40 yrs experience in the finance industry. Aside from my home I have NEVER bought ANYTHING that I could not pay cash for. But I do believe the 150 Euros under discussion here is such a minimal amount. If someone is able to get a deal with zero interest and no fees, I would rather leave my money in my stock portfolio (or Bank account) where it will at least earn a return.

With winter not far off, you are right - winter tires look like the better option, particularly as you now have a nice new car.
