    Excellent – Are you tempted by the two tone paint? I think it looks amazing, if only it was not such a massive extra cost. I have a T5.1.

    WMC – I am sadly most likely to pick Indium Gray. 

    What’s the mpg like on yours? We currently have a BMW 2 Series 220D xDrive which does 40mpg.

    My brother had a T6 Combi 200hp DSG and he said the mpg was mid twenties.

    T5.1 DSG 140 here, Around 30mpg, 20 when towing a caravan. It hurts, but any alternative vehicle that will fit the family will incur the same running costs, or more if you look at the Hyundai i800 costs.

    I should probably expect similar mpg then. Isn’t the i800 a 2.5?

    I800 is a 2.5, but it’s a stinker on fuel.

    Am I mistaken or did someone say a few weeks ago 100 to be added by the month end? Seems unlikely.

    Q1 of every year sees a cull, although this year has been particularly bad.

    The net reduction from Q4 2019 is still over 200.

    Adding 200 cars in a month would be unprecedented.

    Personally, I think the problem is that all of the manufacturers are falling over themselves to add hybrids to their existing ranges.  The 48V systems seem to be very popular but it will still take time to filter down to Motability level.

    There’s a lot of contradiction taking place in the media that isn’t helping.  Petrol and diesels will, allegedly disappearing.  No they won’t.  Petrol and diesels will just have 48V micro-hybrids installed.

    The hybrids bring a secondary problem.  Engine size reduction.  In order to install a simple, under-the-bonnet system, internal combustion engines will be smaller and have to work harder to keep the hybrid batteries charged.

    Most recently, the press have also started having a go at diesel cars (again) over the ineffectiveness of particulate filters and asking why petrol engines shouldn’t also be fitted with similar systems.  Also, the press have found a study that the next major hazard to the environment is brake dust from vehicles.

    Advance payments have been creeping up and up over the last couple of years, some by ridiculous amounts.  The Citroen Berlingo and Peugeot Partner (now Rifter) automatics had APs of just £495 and £499 and a couple of years ago, now both are now well over £1000.

    The Audi A4 is only on the scheme as there is probably a lot of RHD stock to get of.  (Brexit effect anyone)  On top of that 150BHP from a modern 2.0 petrol is a joke.

    If anyone is due to change cars this quarter, be brave and wait.  Call Motability and tell them you’re struggling to find the extra money for an advance payment.  Particularly if you have a larger car.  I’ve done it more than once.

    My current lease is up in September this year so I’m quite fortunate.  I will get my letter in June.  I’ll be able to order a car on 30th June and, if necessary, cancel it on 1st July in the event that something spectacular happens to the AP.  Last time I saved over £1000 on the AP by not cancelling but still had the reassurance that it was possible.

    The only other thing we can “hope” for is another Daily Mail exposé and Motability are forced to reign in the APs.  It’s not that long ago that the maximum AP was £2000 for a manual and £2500 for an auto.  The number of cars on the scheme reduced but not by much.  It was the manufacturers that were forced to reconsider their pricing structure.  The last thing we want again is a repeat of when APs could reach just shy of £20,000 – yes, twenty thousand pounds – for a car.

    Some wise words blueclouduk.
    If the media were to be believed, 15 years ago we’d have all ditched petrol for diesel, then 5 years ago to now we’d have all ditched diesel. We’d be walking everywhere. Manufacturers response to the fossil fuel crisis was to throw low CC petrol engines into large cars, turbo charge them and claim this was the answer. It wasn’t. Squeezing 180bhp+ out of a 1.4 engine, whilst possible (F1 uses 1.6L turbo’d and in the 80’s, used similar), longevity isn’t their strong point or their fuel efficiency. Even with the gains in micron accuracy with regards to manufacturing, the stresses on these small CC engines is phenomenal. How they will actually last will be proven in the near future as they all near 100k miles.
    All fossil fuel engines from here on in are a giant sticking plaster until EV’s rule the roads.

    🏎 I will be remembered for nothing but had great fun doing it 🏎

    My guess some of them will be the ford Kuga?


    In 2005 I suffered a brain injury which has left me with mental and physical disabilities.
    Unfortunately I do get confused and get things wrong, so I apologise in advance.
