Philjb, no it won’t cost me 250 in fuel, lol. But the current offer is 190 miles from me, so nudging £50 for a return journey to order. So what I’m saying is if I can get within 50 of that order from my local dealer then I’d probably be ok with that. Firstly though I’ve got to email all the dealers I can find closer than 190miles and see what they can come up with.April 15, 2019 at 11:05 am #74854vinalspinParticipant
Don’t forget you will have 2 journeys, 1 to order and 1 to collect new car.April 15, 2019 at 12:15 pm #74865BanditParticipant
This is true vinalspin, but I’m not pointing that out to them, that’s for them to work out and calculate!
Amazing the different responses you get though, ranging from “I’ve never given a discount on AP, I’m not even sure it’s allowed” to “Oh Motability fix those prices, not us” and one chap came back, presumably thinking he was my local dealer, with “oh you should never buy up country, if there’s a fault that can’t be rectified you’ll have to take it all the way back”April 23, 2019 at 3:43 pm #75366Bandit
Well, my local Sinclair wouldn’t match. However, of the four other Sinclair outfits heading up the M4 one of them (70 odd Google miles away) offered 250. Upon hearing another Sinclair was doing it Neyland Sinclair (in Pembs) immediately decided to match that at least. So 250 discount locally instead of 300 but 190 miles away.
Consequently ordered Sharan SE 2.0Tdi DSG today. Indium Grey but happy to have any colour if it means grabbing one already in the system.
Tbh, this one’s purely for the functionality it offers none of the colours float my boat anyway.April 23, 2019 at 4:38 pm #75369Persuader
Bandit great choice of car and colour.April 23, 2019 at 11:03 pm #75395wonky
Hi Bandit, I’m interested in same car as you , Sharan se auto.
Being told none available only factory order, which I don’t want to do.
If any of your dealers find any available, will you post on here? I’ll do same if I hear of any, (obviously grab your order first) ha ha !

From memory, Heritage of Bristol said they had one in the system due to land in about 8 weeks. But they wouldn’t discount.
I’ve just heard from Sinclair that going to be a build order (26 weeks?) but tbh I can live with the Kuga until it’s ready.April 24, 2019 at 1:18 pm #75443wonky
Cheers Bandit, do you know if all dealers can access all cars in system?
If it’s any use to you, I’ve just been offered choice of 2 Tiguan auto 2 wheel drive , both built and landed in this country.

Is the discount of £600 still available on a Tiguan/Tiguan Allspace this month or did it expire in March… what are the current discounts being offered for the Tiguan? xApril 25, 2019 at 11:02 pm #75551Tosher
As far as I’m aware JCT600 VW at Hull and York are still offering £600 dealer contribution to the deposit. I mentioned the deal to another dealer closer to home and they matched it but asked me not to advertise the fact as it was a 1 off.
Best thing I can suggest is you ring JCT600 at Hull and establish if they’re still offering the deal and then ring around other VW dealers to see if they can match it. Start with those closer to home and then work outwards. One of the dealers quite close to where I live offered £300 dealer contribution but couldn’t match the £600 JCT600 were offering.
Hope this helps.April 26, 2019 at 12:26 pm #75572LazyGit
Hoping you can shed some light for a new member here, are there any dealers offering discounts on Mazda/Mercedes/Toyota/Vauxhalls?
Specifically looking at a Mazda 6 or CX-5, Mercedes B-Class, Toyota CHR or Vauxhall Grandland X.
Thanks, lastly, based in the West Midlands for dealer locations if that helps, again, any help is greatly appreciated.April 26, 2019 at 12:36 pm #75574LazyGit
Oops, sorry wrong thread!April 26, 2019 at 3:39 pm #75590NewfieParticipant
JCT600 VW Hull is still offering £600 discount on all Tiguans. The £600 is only if you have metallic paint, if you choose a solid colour the discount is then £550.

Hi @wonky, No I don’t know if dealers can access all, it’s something I’ve wondered. But i suspect once it’s in build it must be allocated to that dealer network? Would be a right bunfight else wouldn’t it.May 2, 2019 at 10:38 am #75978WardyGTCParticipant
Had a test drive in a Tiguan at my local dealership yesterday, very nice car.
Am currently awaiting a response from them as to whether they will match the JCT600 deal.
If they won’t I’ll try a few other dealers but am not put off by two trips across the Pennines to save money (the AP is out of budget for me without the discount).
Or I could plump for a Seat Ateca SE Technology if I decide not to travel.May 2, 2019 at 11:38 am #75981Tosher
I made enquiries with several Nwest dealers and only Preston VW offered £250 dealer discount. I then made enquiries with a few Yorkshire dealers and one matched the £600. It’s worth looking for VW dealers on Google maps and spending the morning ringing around starting with those closest to home and progressing towards Yorkshire.May 27, 2019 at 1:19 pm #77945
Hi anyone know if Hull and York still giving these discounts ? or even better Wakefield or Bradford

Hi cb2011, as far as I’m aware Hull are still honouring the £600 dealer contribution. Although it’s worth ringing around closer to home to check if anyone else will match it,May 27, 2019 at 5:22 pm #77974
i have emailed 5 jct 600 branches and after 3 days only one has replied which is closer by a few miles but googles maps says it takes 15 minutes longer to get too.
It was Rotherham, and the reply contained “we are more than happy to look at this with you” if anyone is in that area.

Wakefield did not offer me any discount when I went in a couple of months ago, And the one in Leeds near Elland road did not even get chance to see a Motability sales man or any other sales team we just got ignored and we was in there around 20 minutes looking around. so off we went down the M62 to Hull and did the deal with Roger.May 27, 2019 at 7:02 pm #77981
I rang the vw garage on elland road and emailed them 3 years ago, still awaiting the reply. Shame as I live in Beeston, I wont let them have the servicing out of principle.May 27, 2019 at 7:19 pm #77982mzmpsParticipant
Have you tried Barnsley, only a few mile down road from Wakefield, there is a VW dealership on Wilthorpe Road, if you come off M1 at J38, follow road (A637) into Barnsley, past Jeep, Perrys, over roundabout, just up the hill on the right.

A few of the VW range are also available as the cheaper, and less badge conscious, Seat. I’ve saved by having the full specification top of the range Alhambra over the lower specification Sharan plus extras, for example. I also got a £100 off and a full tank of diesel, 70 litres, worth an additional £90+. This was from Seat in Bristol. Every little helps.
