    Random question, but there’s always deals to be done when it comes to buying cars normally.

    Has anyone ever heard of getting a few extras thrown in when purchasing through the motability scheme?

    I guess it can depend on alot of factors and often some dealers do deals on the advance payment. on my last car i got £200 off and the one before that £250 off the AP. I never add any extra’s, i chosse the cars that have what i need and want as standard. You can use this link to see https://www.motaclarity.co.uk/news/motability-deals what deals are on offer and where they are and some users have travelled to get a car, cheaper and i guess if you save on the ap you can use that to offset any extra’s but i just see them as added money you never will get back after the 3 year lease and mb will benefit from.

    In the 10+ years I’ve been on the scheme they have said no to offering me a discount on extras but if you don’t ask you don’t get, so try your luck

    Good advice Azzy, 1st time order for me Amanda too, however I managed a £250 discount from Volvo due to this web site.

    i simply copied and pasted the thread of discount given to four other members on here to the dealer got an instant reply discount added to final AP  price.

    This is a great site for people like you and me who simply haven’t done this sort of thing before.

    Have tried on every occasion I’ve had a Motability car (including the Volvo I get next week) and I’m always told no.

    Always ask, if you get no as a answer just say that’s a shame.

    I have 5 Toyota dealers near me surely one would give me free mudflaps fitted worth around £150

    Mike; go through all the chat/blurb with the salesman etc etc… and then say: “I’ll tell you what; if you throw in free mudflaps – I’ll have the car today”. – simple as. They won’t want to lose a sale in this current climate all for the sake of a hundred and fifty quid!
