    @elliot i believe you’ve miss read my comment , and im sorry if any offence was taken as it wasnt meant as personal but simple a nod to the confusion over  Dash Cams by many people as Motability have never made it clear. for them to put it in black and white is a step in the right direction.

    For a £1 our local machine you can fill you windscreen wash up as well as air, it’s a military operation trying to do it before the beeper goes off, saves having to carry screenwash around though.

    I would like to say a huge thanks to BigDave who originally posted this deal on the 9th July, under Q3 sticky. It may have been overlooked by many until Brydo highlighted it. I drove down from Durham to Wales last week to place my order and am very happy with the level of service I recieved and the tip-off from BigDave to go there. Looking forward to collecting it in a few weeks. Thanks again to everyone who helps keep the forum going.

    good point Fordmax and i must say sorry to @bigdave as he pointed out we used to have a Deals Thread sticky in a previous post recently and i never commented, and i will do this as i know himself and other like looking for deals to help others,  we are  happy to restart  this as long as its a direct link to the dealerships/manufacturer or personal experience, WMC works hard behind the scenes to make this the Forum it is. we are not an advertising billboard for others we are here to help. WMC (the person behind it) set it up through personal experiences to help and guide others and for those that may not have a voice for themselves “nobody puts baby in the corner” so to speak. i support this and thank everyone that takes part and makes this the unique site it is.

    @bigdave i will sort a sticky for you, thank you.

    i like looking at the adverts as sometimes its a hint at whats coming next quarter or if prices are changing,

    like the volvo on page 23 it states the R design from £899 im sure thats a couple of hundred cheaper than at present

    thanks @joss for the screen print. (i assume my link worked ?)

    @elliot My flippant comment that answers many a question about dash cams was meant in humor, No it doesnt say Hardwired but if that is an option at point of order with the manufacture, then that can be taken up with with Motability on an individual bases, the fact they have put it in their Magazine and black and white so to speak for sure must be a step forward, its a good thing please not lets turn it into a negative

    @ eveyyone else i hope you find some positives from the Magazine not everyone gets its though the post.

    I’ve just spoken to Motability and the Audi A3 will NOT be joining back on the scheme

    the coming motability lifestyle magazine August edition (bumper issue lol as its 65 pages this time) says its coming soon. in the drive section it has “keep an eye out for these exiting new models”

    Audi A3 – Renault Captur E Tech – honda jazz – ToyotaYaris

    the advert for the All new Kuga Plug in Hybrid looks good too.

    ade the dealership doesn’t lease it they Sell it to Motability i think you may need to re-read the comments as your replies seem a tad harsh and personal, i think you may of misread some comments.

    If it such an issue – just go ahead and buy the car outright. Problem solved. The car will be yours. I just dont think you quite understand what leasing and buying a car means. Just dont rant because a dealer wants to SELL a car rather then LEASE a car.

    great info Ade but its not that simple, They will not simply write it off. if your vehicle is returned in bad condition then you break the conditions of the lease  and you may be barred from being part of the scheme, at present they are doing it as good will  but you may be excluded from the scheme, they have done it to suit themselves the” sweet spot” as Mike Betts puts it (that should of left the company at the latest May 2020) is the 3 year period. they want you to order a new vehicle to maintain the status que the hardship payment is nothing but allowing people to take advantage of it and use it to order another vehichle and Stay on the Scheme

    Your dealership will be assigned the first 2 letters which goes on area of country, the numbers are obviously set but some dealership can and will offer you a choice on the last 3 letters, it is subject to availability asdvla now hold back certain prefix to auction off  themselves. Some dealership don’t offer it but worth asking.

    lol i only did the live chat for a laugh but must stay away as my next one would go something like

    Js.

    our last 7 or 8 vehicles have been Automatic but officially its choice not medical, does that mean this time around i should order a manual.

    Mo simpleton.

    no if your chosen model has an automatic variant on motability than you can certainly order an automatic at your cost if its different from the manual, its not on medical conditions.

    Js

    then why the hell do i need permission to change the colour of the seats/add a sun roof/tint the windows/ or heat my derry ass etc etc

    Mo simpleton

    because thats what my screen says.

    it is nonsense and i personally dont know what all the fuse is about, we’ve never had it flag up, but ive only ever dealt with the common sense sales staff (i walk away from the others)which if ticked the relevant boxes correct everything goes through, never had any extras questioned/refused at point of order or after.

    just to add to the nonsense around what should be and normally is the common sense approch, most dealers just tick the yes box and we never need not be any the wiser  but ask a motability live chat and you get the official none common sense answer which is as of 15minutes ago.

    This is something that can be added if there is a medical justification to needing these. Can I ask if this would apply in your situation?

    Johnsons for me stood out from other dealerships and can highly recommend, the staff all seem to stay for years instead of changing from dealership to dealership which to me is a good indicator of great service.

    lol some interesting and mixed advice,

    tomthumb Dont ignore this, im assuming the dealership did a licence check or you had a named driver with you with a valid licence as they should never of let you drive off without it, its not a case of a few more days/week wont matter or the “plod take no notice” it can invalidate your insurance and make you liable (fault or no fault) it is very unlikely but possible, it can also carry a fine upto £5000. if its not possible to renew online ( i think they have a within 30 day or 3 month rule or something) then my advice is to send it via the post office where you can pay a few quid for them to pre check the application, also do a “licence checker” with the DVLA or what ever its called this week, this will give a number valid for i think 21 days showing your upto date licence details and handy to have with you whilst awaiting a renewed licence.  just in case.

    it is nothing to worry about and a simple call to dvla will put your mind at rest . in the meantime do the licence check/share thingy. https://www.gov.uk/view-driving-licence, good luck & nice car

    something thats not commonly known is Motability has 4 refurb centers across the country where they carry out their own “smart” repairs on returned vehicles,  just abit of usless info but may explain why they alow minor dings etc.

    Unfortunately their doesn’t seem to be a work around you can order a vehicle and as long as handover date is either on or after the 25th birthday it is possible. If there is only a couple of months difference it might be an idea to hold off and use the allowance in the meantime to hire a vehicle. Some of the big hire companies do a reduced rate for a 3 month hire period within reach of the allowance amount. Then order a vehicle with a pick up date to coinsude with being classed qas over 25. And with motability unlike some insurances you are classed as over 25 upon I minute passed midnight on the day of your birthday, some 3 month hires can workout as little a £6 a day with a wide choice of vehicles available at £9 a day. May tide you over until your partner turns 25 and the choice widens.
