March 2, 2019 at 9:02 am #71545
I know this has probably been posted before but there’s so many posts on this thread
So.. Has anyone bought a Tiguan up in or as close to Sunny Scotland as possible and managed to get a decent discount?
If so please post the dealers details here
Thanks in advanceMarch 2, 2019 at 9:48 am #71548
We’ve not ordered ours yet but I have a confirmed offer from jct600 in hull for £500 off the ap via voicemail. I will take it withwme and see if they’ll match it,i live in Newcastle so I’m not to far away from you so I will let you know how it goes as I’m at the dealership on TuesdayMarch 2, 2019 at 10:24 am #71551
<p style=”text-align: left;”>Hi Chris.</p>
Thanks for the info, £500 is good, Hull is about 4 hours drive for me , so if someone was to say I’ll give you £500 to drive 8 hours I’d bite their hand off lol
So that could be an option thanks , can you remember the name of the person you spoke with?
I’m curently phoning around the closet VW dealers to me at the moMarch 2, 2019 at 10:58 am #71552
Unfortunately it’s all Arnold Clark around me and I got the good old line of .. Oh we don’t offer discounts, motability set the prices I pointed out the last 2 cars I got were discounted from Audi, and some other deals available from companies down south , but nope she wasnt interested
In a way I’m kind of glad as I’ve got the same levels of enthusiasm for Arnold Clark as I do for Kwik FitMarch 2, 2019 at 11:21 am #71554
Don’t remember the guy’s name but if you go on jct600 and email asking about the discount at hull he will call you back. I’ve just phoned my local VW dealer and he is off to ask his manager if they’ll match it. He did say he’d need a deposit though so bare that in mindMarch 2, 2019 at 1:42 pm #71561
The guy you want at JCT600 Hull is Roger, he does not work weekends so you’ll be able to catch him in the week or drop h m an email firstname.lastname@example.org

VW Tiguan SEL 2.0TDi 150 DSG 4Motion

I will call him on Monday.
Spoke with about 6 dealers today, all pretty much met with the standard response of no AP discount, 2 still to get back to me after they check with their managers , I really nice guy from Edinburgh did Atlesst try but the best he could do was 20%o off any options
So it looks like I’m on a road trip like Del Boy from Only Fools and Horses.. To Hull and Back ?March 2, 2019 at 1:54 pm #71565
Roger is a great guy to deal with. You’ll get no bulls**t from him as he is up front about everything and he is one that will keep you updated with everything. I moved to Hull just over a year ago and it was the best move as regards a great VW dealer.

Fantastic thanks, I’ll def be calling him
I’ll. Post an update once I doMarch 2, 2019 at 5:01 pm #71570
Hey Winston, I’ve heared the JCT600 branch in York will do £600 off – think that’s a bit closer – contact there is Josh – Main Tel – 01904 376749
Good luck buddy.

About an hour ago I was on Google maps looking looking for other JCT branches closer than Hull and as you rightly pointed out York is closest, so I will def try them first thing on Monday
I know the old Joke about Scottish people being tight with money, which is a myth obv lol. But the garages I spoke to today have acted like it’s coming out their own individual pockets
So if I need to travel, so be it I will
One other thing I did today was to call Motability to clarify a paint question I had
The standard white on the Tig is non metallic, and as we know we are entitled to free metallic paint, however the white metallic paint on the Tig is a grand. And mota aren’t willing to pay that, or any part of it, so I don’t think I’ll be paying a grand for that upgrade
The R line tech is pretty much fully loaded so the only option I can see is the upgraded stereo, was thinking about the upgraded larger display but I don’t think it’s worth the money
Never drove that far to York in years, but I’m sure I’ll be fine haMarch 2, 2019 at 5:19 pm #71572
You never know Winston, there may further deals to be done on options. Here good things about JCT600, seems they have a similar book balancing technique to Marshalls where volume is worth more than discounts – just a shame not all vw dealers have the same outlook.
Can you pick up Brydo on the way? Be like Max and Paddy’s road to nowhere LOL
Mota History - Nissan Qashqai Ford Focus Seat Leon ST Mazda CX-5March 2, 2019 at 5:32 pm #71573
I’ll certainly be asking for 20% off to sweeten the deal traveling from Glasgow
Haha I used to like that programme Trev, Brydo if you’re out there and you want to go just let me know lol
We can get you down there Trev and it’ll be the A team lolMarch 2, 2019 at 5:56 pm #71574
It’s a long journey Winston could you stay overnight in travelodge etc ?March 2, 2019 at 6:17 pm #71575
If you haven’t done the drive in years you’ll be pleasantly surprised, the whole part of the A1 to York has been transformed it’s a great road now, the only bit of non dual carriageway/motorway from Glasgow is on the A66 to Scotch corner and even that is mostly dual carriageway. It’s made our trips from Peterborough to Ardrossan over an hour shorter than the old days.
Lol, I was just about to click submit when a text came from the wife, her train is just pulling into Ardrossan.March 2, 2019 at 6:54 pm #71576
Just been and ordered mine
2.0tdi match 4motion with the dsg box for £949 all in.
I asked the motability specialist in there about the discount and told him that jct600 had confirmed. He went and spoke to his manager and agreed to do it for a £100 deposit, we just went and payed the full lot off and that’s it done.
VW Newcastle silver link is where I’ve ordered it and if you hurry they’ve 4 left and ready to go in 2 weeks. 2 blue and 2 silver he said, plus it’s considerably closer than york.
Good luckMarch 2, 2019 at 6:57 pm #71578
Mike , I wouldn’t bother with the overnight stay, I’d probably just grab a McDonald’s and drive home lol
Robert, Ive never driven it before ever I just meant I’ve not driven as far or for that length of time in years! But in glad to hear the roads have been improved! ?
Sunny Ardrossan eh? Do yous visit there often?
<p style=”text-align: right;”></p>March 2, 2019 at 7:00 pm #71579
Just posted my reply before I had read yours, that’s a great deal you got and nice to hear you will get it so soon
It’s a white one I’m after or else that could have been a great shout
Thanks again for the replyMarch 2, 2019 at 7:10 pm #71580
Hi Chris, well done! Is it the all space you’ve ordered? Are the 4 stock cars all space?
Anyone know, Are the jct 600 cars in stock or factory orders?
Regards, wonkyMarch 2, 2019 at 8:29 pm #71581
It’s is yes I’ve ordered the
VW Tiguan allspace 2.0 TDI match 4motion with the dsg box in pearl black.
They said that and the 4 others were on the way to the dealership but I’m not sure on the specs for those.
The motability lad ( very helpful ) was honest about delivery times from the factory to be about 22 weeks minimum, but if the car ordered was standard without extras then they could probably get a hold of one in 2 weeks if colour etc weren’t an issue.
The car I was looking at today was a white allspace buy it was the se nav model .Like I said it might be worth calling them and asking if they have any white in stock elsewhere, worth a shot!
Hope you find one as they seem to be a cracking piece of kit at the price.March 4, 2019 at 1:33 pm #71637
Just a little update folks
Spoke to another few dealers in Scotland regards to discounts etc with no real joy
So I spoke to Roger at Jct in Hull and what a lovely man he was!
Polar opposite from the 7 or 8 previous deleads I had spoken with when I brought up the subject of discounts etc
So much so that it looks like a road trip to Hull is very much on the cards to go and officially sign for the order
4 and a half hours each way isn’t something I’m thrilled about and the same again on the collection day but for the deal I’m getting to me it’s a no brainer!
So my advice is if you are looking for a new Tiguan, and you want a great deal, even if it’s a bit further away than you’d normally travel make sure you give him a call to see what he can do for you then you can weigh it up and decide for yourself at your own leisure
I’ll post an update once I’ve ordered, if I make it to Hull and Back lolMarch 4, 2019 at 1:37 pm #71638
Fantastic news Winston,
Begs the question why all dealers can’t offer the same level of service and deals like JCT600 – tell you what, though they must be getting a serious number of orders from all the good reviews and publicity they are getting – and rightly so!
Have a safe trip buddy, look forward to further updates.

well done Winston, it just shows the disttance we Scots will go for a bargain lol about 550 miles as it turns out. Good luck.
The only person who got all his work done by Friday was Robinson CrusoeMarch 4, 2019 at 1:48 pm #71640
The guy seems really knowledgeable with no BS, he said he knows exactly much they can make from a new Tig order and they have plenty of room to offer discounts
Before I spoke to him today I called a dealer about an hour away and she was giving it We only act as a broker and make very little blah blah, so could give you 100 off! Yeah no bother sweetheart ?
I don’t want to go into specifics because that wouldn’t be fair if everyone called him, demanded the same and then complained if they never got it
But belive me I’m over the moon with it, so def worth a call in you are in the market for one and fancy adding a few options
He cleared up the metallic/pearl paint upgrade question aswell that Motability themselves were a bit unsure of earlier
So all in all a fantastic start ?March 4, 2019 at 1:49 pm #71641
Just missed your reply there Brydo! That’s mate! Who says us Socts are tight? ??Lol
