<p style=”text-align: left;”>So it’s that time of month again well quater so let’s post all the found deals in here. I Did start one off in motability Facebook and got told off by them and informed I’m not allowed to do that lol. Never mind I know it’s all good in here……</p>
So Marshall v.w 250 off
Listers mini 399 off selected cars.
It’s hard to find them all as many are still updating so pass on what you know ladies and gents.

Thank you for taking the time to post back Gordon, I completely agree this is misleading, and in my personal opinion it is misselling – one of my pet peeves.
Apologies that it wasn’t a true offer.December 14, 2018 at 2:58 pm #67488
Has anyone any feedback on the Mercedes revised A class?
RoadwarriorDecember 18, 2018 at 11:32 pm #67741
Well, I’ve placed an order for a Mitsubishi PHEV, my second one. As predicted, although the dealership let me test drive the car unaccompanied which I prefer and for as long as I wanted, there was still that case that plagues Scottish dealers of apathy and almost total disinterest. It’s a shame as it’s a £37000 car, you’d think they would thank you for your business but no, just a case of ‘we will let you know when it’s arriving’. I wish dealerships were far more proactive in Scotland than they are.
Thanks for you advice Trev.December 19, 2018 at 6:36 am #67743
Fantastic news Gordon, well done, what lead time have they given you?
Will look forward to the photo’s when you get her.
Re: dealers, we have them down here in the South to unfortunately – if the dealer is on target for their sales the interest seems to drop, especially with motability customers as commission is lower and more restrictive than a retail customer – we don’t need finance packages, extended warranty, paint protection, etc that they sell as add-ons to retail customer for commission. Main thing is you have been able to order the car you want.
Merry Christmas Gordon.December 20, 2018 at 12:46 am #67797
Merry Christmas to you too.
The lead time is around 16 weeks which is only about 5 weeks over my change date so not too bad. They have sold all the cars of the first arriving boat and the second one arriving at the beginning of March is almost all reserved already. Good for results for Mitsubishi! I will post pics when it arrives.December 22, 2018 at 6:34 pm #67989
This is my first post and I just wanted to thank all for posting their opinions and experiences, really helpful.
I have just returned from Portsmouth BMW (drove from London) Kelly was excellent, very helpful and willing to do a deal. I wouldn’t have found this deal if this forum didn’t exist, so thank you.
If any are looking at BMW please contact KellyDecember 24, 2018 at 9:39 pm #68080
I’m so pleased that I got my order in for the Mitsubishi PHEV in this quarter as I’ve just seen what it’s going up to on the the 1st of January. Great that it’s staying on the scheme but not such a good AP.
GordonDecember 24, 2018 at 9:52 pm #68084
Yes Gordon, you timed that very well. The Q1 AP has risen to swallow the missing £2.5k grant that is not available anymore. I’m not sure it will be as popular at this new price.December 31, 2018 at 12:13 pm #68215
Anyone know of Citroen dealers offering discounts. So far I have contacted 4-5 dealers and all say that their prices are set by Motability and no leeway for discounts. Really there are a quite a few of the dealers that are still offering £500- discounts for December but none for us 🙁 Any suggestions?
Looking to order TODAY the C5 flair Plus Diesel Auto seems a very promising car.
Thanks in advance.

Went and ordered our new car today and have gone for the Tiguan Allspace 2.0 manual 4wd and showed the salesman this thread with the reference to Marshall’s vw and their £300 discount and we were promptly given a £200 discount off our ap despite being hundreds of miles away from Marshall’s (Lookers VW Middlesbrough) so thank you to everyone on the forum for promoting us to do so and just shows if you don’t ask you don’t get.January 17, 2019 at 3:09 pm #68911
The deal continues… £500.00 off all advances payments with me at Snows BMW Portsmouth! – email@example.com
I know some of you interested will be travelling from a far so I will make sure there is some breakfast/lunch in the café sorted for you!January 17, 2019 at 4:28 pm #68915
Thats a great offer. I am a long way from you, would I need to come down to order in person?January 17, 2019 at 7:24 pm #68916
Kelly Thats a great offer. I am a long way from you, would I need to come down to order in person?
Yes. You would. You have to be on-site and in person to sign the paperwork. Too large a risk (and naïve imo) for both parties to try and do this remotely.January 17, 2019 at 7:29 pm #68917
Rapster good advice, where you been I’ve missed your posts?January 17, 2019 at 7:35 pm #68918
Hello, my old jousting partner!
(Yeah, yeah, less of the old… ;D )
In a word: work. I went a away with work for a while and then spent the last week overseas for a little post-work break – good fun!
How are you, I hope the new year is treating you well?
(Happy New Year, by the way!) 🙂January 17, 2019 at 7:38 pm #68919
Yes i am well, a wee heart procedure apart, and a happy new year to you. Good to see you are back and in good health, its so difficult to get a good discussion going without your input haha.January 17, 2019 at 8:23 pm #68924
I sincerely hope your heart procedure was a success. 👍January 17, 2019 at 8:36 pm #68927
i had been having chest pains, usually after one of your scathing critique of my posts lol. So they sent me in for a scan, they found a bit of heart disease but nothing to worry about, so i will continue to take the tablets and all should be good.January 17, 2019 at 8:43 pm #68928
Good job, it sounds as if it was caught in time before anything nasty happened. Heart enlarged or ‘owt like that or just ‘you could do with some exercise and live healthier and keep taking the tablets’?
You say scathing critique; I say constructive criticism. 😁January 17, 2019 at 8:53 pm #68929
Potato, potahto, tomato, tomahto lolJanuary 17, 2019 at 9:09 pm #68932
However, let’s not call the whole thing off. 😁January 17, 2019 at 9:13 pm #68934
Your not one of these must get the last word guys Rapster, theres only room on this Forum for one of those lol.January 17, 2019 at 11:53 pm #68944
Of course not! I wouldn’t want to tread on any toes.
Ooops…January 17, 2019 at 11:55 pm #68945
I like the pause rapter allowing me to think I had won lol 😂January 18, 2019 at 8:32 pm #69004
You have, my friend, you have indeed won… 😇
