does anyone know of any vw dealers offering discounts on motabilty at the moment?
March 4, 2019 at 1:57 pm #71642
Winston ask him if he is happy for you to divulge your agreement on the forum.
I suggest a tiguan or all space with £500-600 off is a bit of a no brainer especially as the APs are already competitive.March 4, 2019 at 1:59 pm #71643
Or better still invite him to come onto the forum with his offers.March 4, 2019 at 2:08 pm #71644
Good to hear you conversation with Roger went well earlier today.
He is a top man, what you see is what you get from Roger. Like you say no BS and up front with everything.
I know its a trek for you but at least their dealership is simple to find and it is on the west side of Hull and simple to get to off the A63 (the A road that leads you off the M62 into Hull).

I did mention the forum to him, he did say he is aware of them but wasn’t a member etc
But when I speak to him again I’ll ask him to post any good monthly or quarterly deals
JCT York were offering £500 of the Tiguan and no movement on options
JCT Hull were offering £600 off the Tiguan and a good further reductions on any options
Really easy to be Frank and negotiate with, very transparentMarch 4, 2019 at 2:14 pm #71646
Thanks again for the recommendation of Roger, he was actually a breath of fresh air. After seeing the Tig in the flesh and deciding it was for me I got a bit disheartened speaking to all the local crap dealers who’s attitude completely changed when I dared mention a discount, so this has really cheered me up a bit!
Thanks for the directions tip!
My plan is to leave here about 4, 4.30am and be there for opening time, get everything done n dusted, a bite to eat and head home to avoid the peak time traffic later 😁🚙March 4, 2019 at 2:17 pm #71647
Tiguan R line manual £2249 minus £500 good condition bonus minus £500 discount, £1249, a bargain, no doubt.March 4, 2019 at 2:19 pm #71648
£1149 even better Winston.March 4, 2019 at 2:20 pm #71649
Are you ordering extras?March 4, 2019 at 2:22 pm #71650
Sounds like a good plan.
I am happy that Roger has come up trumps for you.
I’m popping in to see him on Wednesday over a Car Net issue which is being spoken about on the Tiguan forum which I guess you are probably on https://www.tiguanforums.co.uk/index.php

It sure is Brydo, I’ve went for the the DSG. The new R Line tech model has some great bits of kit threw in for gratis
Reverse Camera, Keyless entry and Start/Stop, Full control of the electric tailgate where as before you could ony open it and had to pay for the close option! Same with the mirrors I think
One thing that isn’t great is the reduced size of the Active Display behind the steering wheel which is 2 inches smaller and they’ve added 2 analogue gauges for fuel and temp, same display in the new T Roc, a bit naff but on the balance of things you gain more than what you lose with the new R Line Tech trim
It’ll be down on power and I’m losing the 4wd of my current car , but I’m sure I can live with these 😁 well I’ll hsve to lolMarch 4, 2019 at 2:30 pm #71653
It does seem ridiculous that in this day and age, with all the technology available, you have to travel all the way down to Hull. I’m sure motability could deal with this over the phone, even on a three way conference call. If you did all the leg work agreeing price extras etc and they just dealt with their side of it over the phone.March 4, 2019 at 2:31 pm #71654
Brydo: option wise I’m going for
Dynaudio Stereo upgrade
Running boards, they have no real purpose but look good lol
Oryx white pearl paint upgrade
Aluminum door sill trim
There really isn’t many more options that would make much of a difference I don’t think 🤔March 4, 2019 at 2:34 pm #71656
I couldn’t agree more about the palava of having to travel to Hull just to order, I might give Mota another call to see if there is anyway around this. If you don’t u don’t get n all that 🤔March 4, 2019 at 2:35 pm #71657
You sure you didn’t win the lottery lol.March 4, 2019 at 2:39 pm #71658
This is something to send to Frank Field, the option to buy from any franchise in the UK without having to travel. We would then have some buying power, what a dog fight that would create.March 4, 2019 at 2:41 pm #71659
Haha if only!
I’d buy us all one if I did 🤣
Newfie: I haven’t joined it yet, but I sure will
What is the issue with the car net thing? Anythibg major I need to worry about?March 4, 2019 at 2:50 pm #71661
Brydo! I couldn’t agree more about the palava of having to travel to Hull just to order, I might give Mota another call to see if there is anyway around this. If you don’t u don’t get n all that
Just one thing to consider is that Motability do advise or ‘tell’ dealers not to offer deals to customers to ensure all customers are treated fairly no matter where they live in the country.
This obviously falls on death ears for a number of dealers, and rightly so, as long as motability get the published AP.

No, in fact I think you won’t get the problem. I have successfully connected Car Net and it works great but since my car was built VW have introduced remote locking/unlocking via the Car Net app. I did read that someone with a new R Line Tech has it working. My Tig is capable of having it but I have got to go through the dealership for positive identification from me before it can be added.
You will get 3 years subscription to “Guide & Inform” and “Security & Service” the latter works via an inbuilt eSIM in the cars Infotainment system and “Guide & Inform” you need to connect it via the hotspot on your smartphone or via (what a lot of us have done) a Mobile WiFi dongle with a 3 PAYG SIM that gives 200mb free every month and you should not need anything more than that to run “Guide & Inform” each month. It gets online traffic updates, weather reports, nearest fuel stations and price and also needed to import destinations you send to you Infotainment via a smartphone or the online portal.

Concur fully with the glowing tributes to Roger at JCT600 Hull – refreshing change to find someone so honest in the trade. Even though we ordered elsewhere it was a pleasure dealing with him – even with his arm in plaster after a cycling accident lol!! Didn’t stop him being professional and upfront.
If only all dealers were so good. I consider myself lucky to have Roger as back up for Rick at Inchcape VW in Manchester, who’s supplying our next AllSpace, after the Sharan.March 4, 2019 at 3:27 pm #71669
Well I contacted Mota and despite my best efforts and the agent checking with the applications team it was a resounding no, all the usual reasons given, Data Protection,, anti fraud, T&Cs etc
I had expected that and accepted that, so it’s a road trip to Hull next week
She asked if I knew any dealers that would accept orders over the phone but I’m no grass lol. So no info was passed over
Same with AP discount , I just mentioned I was offered a good deal on options incase thsy caused any grief for the dealer I will use
Good to know Newfie I’m sure I’ll be being your ear for more info or hints n tips at collection time 🤣
I’m glad you got the deal you were after Black Country Bob, it makes ordering a new car a much less anxious time when you are dealing with someone like that 😊

Hi all,I recall like Winston travelling from Scotland I was interested in the Skoda vrs and I was offered £500 discount from DM Keith in Leeds and as I’m from Glasgow all I was asked to do was scan the documents required and they were happy to proceed however that was 2017 but not sure if it’s now impossible to do?March 4, 2019 at 3:38 pm #71672
Surely it can’t be far off where there will be an online portal for customers to place orders – they have the template to use already, copy over the dealer portal and just make the necessary adjustments to it. But that’s a different topic, the time will come no doubt.

Yeah probably about 2 weeks after my trip to Hull lol
But it’s worth it in the long run for me, so Hull it isMarch 4, 2019 at 3:47 pm #71675
Oh don’t lol
Be a nice send off for the Q3 to have a final roadtrip 🙂

Exactly, she has served me well but nothing lasts forever
And the return leg after collecting the car gives me plenty of time to get a feel for it, 😊
