    Contacted motability tonight to ask them to organise moving our personalised number plates to the new car. The chap was brilliant took all the details over the phone and filled in the forms online. I gave him my debit card details and he made the payment, sorted

    The good news is that our new car comes on the 23rd December but the really good news is our five year lease is up on the 22nd so, assuming the car is still in good nik, we should receive a £900 good condition bonus.

    The chap went on to say that if there is no brexit deal the number of cars on the scheme will be reduced so they are hoping a deal is sorted soon.

    I spoke about EVs and the high price of most of them, he said they were looking at this in detail and members will be getting loads of info on the subject together with what they are doing to address the problem.

    No Martinod as long as its decent it will be fine, remember your not taking back a new car, its five years old so fair wear and tear is acceptable.

    Hi Brydo,

    My name is Paul, I’m new to this.  I understand your wife ordered a Volvo XC40 Inscription Pro in White with Blonde interior, I must say a very good choice, my wife collected our one back in October, and we’ve found it a lot better than our previous car which was a Mercedes GLA 200D 4matic.

    Our car is in the Demin Blue with Blonde interior.

    Again, well done on your chose of new vehicle, I hope you have many years of happy driving.

     

    Regards

     

    Paul

    I would love blond (sorry cream) interior but I would never get it always get dark easier to keep clean I think the blond would get dirty very easily especially the cream carpet .

    Martino’s we’ve had cream leather in our xc60 for five years with no problems…………. Its now black leather now though lol.

    But seriously no problems with the cream leather, cleans up a treat and I don’t think the carpets are blonde I think they are black as they are black in our current car.

    Thanks Paul and welcome to the forum, I hope you enjoy your car, great choice.

    We have had an xc60 for the past five years and would be happy to keep it even longer. So we’re hoping the xc40 is as good.

    Hi Brydo,

    Paul, here again.  I forgot to mention I have the “intellisafe” package fitted to my car it’s worth the additional cost; it’s NOT the “intellisafe pro” pack, which includes the self drive feature or the adaptive cruise control but it does include everything else.

     

    Regards

     

    Paul

    Paul I am your stereotypical tight Scot so no chance of me getting it. I nearly had a heart attack when the wife picked white with a £275 additional cost.

    On the subject of personalised number plates anyone considering purchasing them should be aware of the ongoing cost of keeping them. The purchase cost can be relatively cheap £200+, depending what you go for but if they are not registered to a car you pay retention every year, £50 the last time I did it. Then just like I am doing, to move it onto another car costs £80 and I have just paid £40 to get the original plates refitted to our car before they are fitted to our new car.

    I always wanted one , but I now think they are a wast of money with what you get and the on going expensive

    you now can buy private reg and it doesn’t really look like a private reg unless you obviously get one for thousand of pounds again a a lot of money for nothing
