    Hi Mitch yes the hard seats and too low no good for me did you try the 3 door cooper s automatic i did see that mini 7 last year it looked good,one thing im puzzled about is they have dropped british racing green its available on the 60 year model and the jcw but not on the others as i do like that colour although the red and darker blue look good even the orange looks quite good. Did you bother with the bonnet stripes and white roof.

    You maybe right until i saw a disabled guy on youtube transfer from wheelchair to the two door cooper s convertible and although he said the seats were hard to slip over to when hew drove it as he was testing it he said he would put up with the pain due to sheer driveability.Im not sure it if you could do that if you like comfort and no pain getting in and out anyway the convertible would be no good to me i think it is the jcw though where the seats have track day hardness.

    I notice the mini cooper s three door sport has two prices on motability starting at £999 sport and £1899 sport its very confusing and one thing if you want folding mirrors you have to have a pack that costs £1600 is that right?

    Many thanks Bry i do think that its time for the dealers and manufacturers should offer what the private buyer gets mostly i have always been told by dealers is they do not make much money out of motability, if anyone remembers in the early 2000 ford used to send out money off vouchers when you contacted head office and now your lucky if you get £100 cashback.It would be good for the gov like the scrappage scheme to offer incentives to buy more on the motability scheme to help the manufacturer in this time with brexit affecting some sales.

    Yes it seems the forum is getting popular which is a good thing Brydo i wonder if there any dealers willing to offer up to £2000 cash back that would be like winning the lottery.I think i will put up a new post to dealers on here for there promotion of there dealership sales.

    Suzuki dealers seem to do well in customer care as well i remember having a 1990 suzuki swift gti that was a great car a bit flimsy but never had any trouble with it and when it went for service i was lent a suzuki vitara and although these were manual gearbox i thought it was great.As these were my own cars and suzuki has come a long way in build quality then the old days i think you cannot go far wrong.

    Well this is news to me i had a letter today from motability they tell me in my request for letters in writing under freedom of information they do not have to do this as the foi does not apply to motability ltd now thats downright not fair even though they are part of goverment so as i have said its all on there side and we the people who pay them have no say holy moly.

    Hi surrey guy im glad you got your problem sorted but it seems motability legal team have got to this forum and threatened them as the post about my complaint and equality issues with motability has got nothing to do with the ombudsman there is no legal problem with free speach on here as under data protection i agree with my details on here its a shame that motability has been protected against the small person and the post has been shut down by mods as motability seem to be a law upon themselves i hope others on here like surrey guy were alowed to keep there post as i had told motability i would be posting what they have done to me they have got to this site which im sorry about.

    It is hardly worth talking about on a motability car forum as it will never be available on motability scheme at that price in uk but it looks good your even lucky to get a car thats over £35000 on motability automatic now as the price cap that was put on cars on the scheme due to the Daily mail right wing press disabilty hate put an end to cars over a certain price.
