    yes fwippers the mota search is totally pants, the kamiq and the karoq are basically the same size just like the vitara and the sx4 and one is supposedly a large suv and the other a small suv. whoever they got to compile their database obviously knows nowt about cars. probably some eco nerd that travels to work on a scateboard or electric scooter. i have a countryman and it aint large. lol

    Spoke with my Vw dealer this afternoon, now 20 weeks for a ID.3 factory build. Unfortunately not a lot of stock in the country plus the factory summer shut down.

    Newfie, either my dealer is telling porky pies or yours is!

    I have a style coming in October, I wanted to change the order to a max or tour, I was informed I would have to cancel the order and start the order again. December would be the delivery month. This is due to the semi-conductor shortages plus, factory shutdown.

    Maybe your dealer has a order in the pipeline already?

    Hi Marcus, I have a very good dealer and I get on very well with their Motability Specialist. I ordered my Tiguan with him 3 years ago and he kept me well informed on that order and was near on true to the delivery of that and that was when there was the nightmare of the first WLTP issues. I have kept up with all the news with VW over the last 3 years with him. And when the Motability site was down this morning he rang me at 9 am to tell me the recent AP’s

    I sat with him and watched him input the order on to the system and I was reading everything that was coming up.

    Initially when we were talking about the car he said it would be November by the time it came and he got that information from a weekly update they get on lead times. It was not until we input the order on the  system it came back with a late September delivery.

    I can only go on what I have seen for myself today but you will get this with dealers. Yours could be saying December thinking it it comes in Sept, Oct or Nov its a bonus for you.

     

    We will have to sit and see what happens lol

     

    Might be worth joining this forum https://www.id3forums.co.uk/ as I find them useful for lead times etc

    My guy has gone away for a well earned break , and has promised me that when he gets back, he will get me an ID.3 Max either from the factory, by changing an order already in, or substituting , or altering one from those already on order, or even one already on the way to him – he did something similar with the Tiguan, which had a 36 week lead time back in 2018 ( so long lead times are not a new thing) yet I was in the new car within 10 days I believe?

    It had a couple of options on it , but that was ok – I have still only used the self parking thing once ( just to see how it worked ) but the other options are fully used, as will any fitted to the car which my guy will find, I’m sure!

    Your guys , like mine, are probably very used to switching orders around to help customers!

    The local dealer however, just came up with the stock answer ( ‘ factory order. 5 months to delivery ).

    Good luck.

    Btw if you go on to the CarWow website and act like you are a buyer,  you can search for UK stock from lots of dealers, some of whom will be ok with using the retail cars for Motability customers,

    Looks like I am pretty much priced out of Motability now. No good advance payments for a vehicle large enough for a wheelchair that is not an estate (I would never get out of one, I need something higher) with electronic handbrake and rear view camera.

    Motability have offered to extend the lease (ends at the end of September) as they are unwilling to offer help towards an advance payment as my current car just about meets my needs albeit with some annoyances/mild difficulties. I think I’ll take that and then walk away.

    A small positive out of an otherwise very poor quarter change is the addition of the 18d engine in the BMW X1. Anyone looking for a diesel SUV should test drive one. I had two extended test drives in X1’s with this engine – a 2WD and 4WD. I am very familiar with the more powerful 20d version but the 18d really didn’t feel like a step down. It uses the same 2.0 litre engine but in a slightly different state of tune, which helps MPG. As with all BMW diesels, it’s so refined you can’t tell it’s a diesel from the noise, only from the performance. The xDrive 4WD version was the better of the two (and isn’t available to us) as it had better traction and grip when driving ‘keenly’, but I doubt that this will be an issue for 99% of Motability customers. The xLine variant that it’s available in is extremely well equipped and has a very premium feel to the interior. We’ve ordered the 20i 4WD version as we wanted to move from diesel to petrol this time but, as I say, anyone still needing a diesel should check this out.

    Mike 700 that’s good advice we did that for our current Seat Alhambra xcellence as factory decided to stop building, we compromised on colour went from red to grey but apart from that managed to get the only one in uk attire dealer Stoneacre had bought in as potential demo we were driving within a week. Sadly this time joining a long queue for Vivaro electric elite but fortunately comfortable in the Alhambra until the unknown delivery date.

    The concern going forward is rising AP’s combined with reducing numbers resulting in a poorer selection for customers. With residual values expected to fall on petrol and diesel cars combined with a shortage of components a reversal of this trend is unlikely. However to give motabiliy credit, they always seem to have choices in most sectors at “reasonable” cost. Now we can see what new additions are added during the course of the quarter.

    One worrying aspects of future AP’s having been watching very closely the cost of the retail sales pricing of the VW Tiguan this year is they (VW) have issued 3 price rises so far this year to the retail price and have noted the last two, one in May and another yesterday, is there getting more regular.

    I do wonder with the prices of second-hand cars also sky rocketing are Motability getting a good share of those rises or, and more likely, the dealers are making a killing with ex Motability cars so nothing to off set future AP’s other than price rises for the likes of you and me.

    I’m reasonably happy that the Tiguan Elegance has only risen £250 as the fear was it might go the way of the Touran that still has a price around £3,500 AP for what is nothing more than a 2010 MPV.

    Hi Chris

    Long time no speak

    Not sure if you are interested in getting the Tiguan Elegance but when I was in my dealers yesterday he showed me the weekly delay report and currently the 1.5 tsi Elegance has a 26 week delay.

    Hello Newfie

    Yep it’s been awhile since we last spoke and that time of ordering has come around again.

    Cast your mind back to the last time in 2018 I was on a good deal for the SEL Touran and cancelled because of delivery times nearing on 9 month (some things never change😁) because of WLTP so ordered a KIA Carens off the shelf.

    With that in mind I’m not too worried about delivery times this time around because I have the all important hoist that I lack on last change over and the KIA has been a very good workhorse but lacks the ease of driving of the VW DSG and Auto-Hold combinations so I’m returning to the VW stable.

    A UK Tiguan forum I follow has been talking about 26 weeks for the R-Line but they say about 6 to 8 weeks for the Elegance but that seems to be more of a dream than a reality but like I said it’s not such a problem this time round but do wonder if that forum are getting there 6 to 8 weeks mixed up with 16 to 18 weeks.

    BTW I did wonder if the Newfie I’ve seen on that forum is you.

    Hi Chris

    Yes that is me you see on the Tiguan MK2 forum. I was going to suggest that forum to you but you’re there before me. Its a great forum for many issues. I shall remain on that forum for a while whilst the wife keeps her Tiguan.

    I myself am moving away from the Tiguan. I would still highly recommend the Tiguan to anybody. Its a great car and its fab to drive. I have and still enjoy driving mine and glad I went for it in the end. Before yesterday my mind was to stay with the Tiguan. I had been looking at EV and especially the Kona as it has a 300 mile range. I did look at the ID3 but they wanted £4500 for something similar in range to the Kona. Then early yesterday morning my dealer called me with the latest AP’s and then found that they had reduced the AP for the 77kwh ID3 by £3100. So I popped down to the dealer just to have a look at the ID3 again but this time I was given a key to an ID3 to go and test drive. They drive superbly.

    So with the reduction in the AP and they way they drive I ordered an ID3 Pro S Tour 77kwh. I should hopefully get it by my changeover date but like you not really fussed if its not on time as I enjoy the Tig.

    I can assure you that you will really enjoy having the Tiguan.

    I just see that the SEAT Leon FR DSG hybrid 201bhp is £0 advance payment. Wow that was over 3k last month.

    So glad that I got my Hyundai Kona Ultimate last month (from stock too) AP has doubled and keep hearing about these nightmare waiting times. Guess it was right time, right place for my first car.
