    We’re due to order in the last days of December, not a great situation but I suspect AP’s will go up, especially as we are looking at the Tiguan Allspace which is currently a bit of a bargain. I could easily see that going up a couple of hundred pounds, or even disappearing from the scheme due to the ridiculous waiting  times to delivery.

    Have they replaced or resealed the front windscreen in a bid to fix the leak ?

    Nope. I told them I think it’s the windscreen, they are convinced it’s the roof rail.They’re not listening to me, they know best.

    I had a nightmare with Autoglass a few years ago. The fitter turned up with the screen to our Audi A4, great I thought, we looked around the car and he noted no damage inside or out. I said I’d make him a coffee so went in to leave him to it. my wife was watching out of the window and she saw the fitter get in the car, put both boots up on the screen and boot the glass out, causing it to shatter everywhere. she called me as the doorbell went, the fitter said the screen broke as he tried to lift it out. I told him my wife had watched him boot it from inside. I went out to look and he’d damaged the dashboard, scratched the touchscreen on the radio. Cut himself and bled all over my seat and carpets and steering wheel, broke the rear view mirror with all the sensors and to top it off scratched the paint on both wings the bonnet and the uprights each side of the screen and all the vents were full of glass. Then it rained. He apologised gave me his managers mobile to ring and drove away???!! understandably I was so angry I thought I’d pop a vein. Anyway it took weeks and several attempts to get everything sorted. But I have to say I’ve had screens fitted since with no problems, thank god.

    I hope you didn’t make him that coffee!

    Has anyone ordered an Tiguan Allspace lately? Does anyone know the current waiting time on one?

    I highly suspect Motability will treat Tesla in the same way it does JLR and we won’t get anywhere near them.

    Motability will certainly have to rethink its EV policy going forward. Our next car will be diesel, but in just over 3 years time I would really like some serious EV options on the scheme.

    For all the complaints we see about motability, it has been an absolute lifesaver for us.

    If they only get £400, how can some dealers give £500 discounts…

    I’m really surprised it doesn’t have height adjustable seatbelts. That one thing alone would put my wife off ordering one.
    What a strange omission from BMW.

    We are due to change next year, but it won’t be electric, I don’t they they are quite there for our needs just yet. When I can drive from the midlands to Scotland non stop I will consider it.
    As long as it doesn’t come with a ridiculous £2000+ ap.

    So surely you should be incredibly grateful that the scheme exists and not be complaining that you can’t get a ridiculously powered car on it.

    kev, are you here on a wind up?

    I suspect so.

    I suspect the scheme suits the majority of its customers just fine.

    Big thumbs up for that post Winston.We’ve been on the scheme since 1997, our first motability car was a Ford Escort estate, and we were over the moon, before that we had always had sub £1000 bangers. We had a look at a C class 3 year ago, wasn’t impressed, but then I’ve never been a ‘badge snob’
    As for ‘premium’ they don’t do well in the reliability league tables either.

    My 184 Seat Alhambra is more than powerful enough, next car will probably be 148, and the one after that some electric thing.
    As we spend most of the time sitting at 40mph (if we’re lucky) in traffic or doing 70 on a motorway I can’t see much point in more hp than that.

    For us personally the wait wouldn’t be much of an issue, we have a perfectly good car that does its job ok, complete with all mod cons and a factory fitted towbar, so if we get another 6-10 months use out of it I’m fine with that.
    I’m not really in that much of a rush to spend a couple of grand on another mobility car.

    I was speaking to a VW salesman last week about the Allspace, he said be prepared for a 6-10 month wait if you order one.

    I think our next car will be diesel, I’m hoping three years from now electric vehicles will have become a lot more mainstream, and there is a decent choice.

    Had a good look round a Tiguan today, very impressed so it’s at the front of the queue.
    The dealer did warn of 6-10 month waiting times though!

    I think the Tiguan is a better deal but I need to test drive one.

    hi andy just had test drive in the terraco lux model very nice but was told i cannot have this model can only have the one below but that does not have electric seats do you have electric seats in the one you will order. bill

    Not sure, I’m looking at the VW Allspace currently. We have electric seats on the Alhambra but everything seems to be getting a lot more expensive now.
