      I took my driving licence down to my local Ford dealers this afternoon.

        197kW is the new in-house motor by Ford. Like I said, the power remains more or less the same: 198kW – 2023, 2023.75MY 197kW – 2024MY The new motor has 95Nm more torque though, hence the faster 0-100 km/h. Don’t take any of this as gospel but this is the most accurate info I’ve been able to glean from various websites. Ford is not very clear in its brochures with different metrics for different MY brochures.

         

        Yep @DelToro thats what i find when looking at the specs,can be confusing.

          There is a motability specialist in Scotland that always posts Ford’s new pricelist a few days before the Quarter begins.

            On the Motability website it says you get the 197kW power,have you asked the supplying dealership if that is the power output you are getting,because i see there is a 198kW one when you check the specifications on other websites……the 197kW output is the faster of the two to 62 strangely.

              Looks like you have to be a “retail customer” best to phone a dealer and see if they will apply it to a Motability customer.

                The new car payment is yours to either spend on a car or put it in your bank,you decide whether it goes to the dealer or your bank account.

                 

                The voucher will presumably come with T&C’s see what they say.

                      @kezo not listing anything just thought i would show a couple of listings i found while browsing Ebay.

                       

                      Dont know if i will get a replacement sent if they check their records they will see i have one.

                       

                      Thought i would show you the installation at my home.

                            @MickC If I’m reading that correctly, they installed a tethered unit (Ohme Home Pro) with an 8m cable, how will having another 8m cable sent help? you can’t plug it into the charger? Only into the Ohme ePod (which doesn’t lock it in place during charging).

                            Let me just clarify what happened. Maybe six weeks ago i got a brown carboard box sent from Ohme,it had a sticker on the side that said 8m Cable,never opened it. Today Jack came to install the charger,showed him the carboard box he looked at it and said i dont think that will have an “un-tethered” unit inside it,but its no problem i have some in my van,all you will need to do is phone Ohme and tell them they sent the wrong unit with tethered cable,and ask them to send you an 8m cable which i did and they said they would get one dispatched asap. Anyway job is finished and Jack was going to his next installation,about an hour after he left he phoned me and asked if i would look in the cardboard box,as he had just got to his next install and the same box size was waiting for him,he said they had opened it and there was just an 8m cable and starage bag inside…so i opened mine while Jack was till on the phone,and low and behold there was an 8m cable and blue storage bag in the box….no charger. If Jack had not got the un tethered chargers on his van me and the next customer would not have been able to do the installation. Did others who chose the 8m cable and un tethered charger experience the same or did you get a box delivered with the charger and cable inside.

                            So Ohme will be sending you another 8m cable, even though one came in a box about 6 weeks ago?

                            I’ll be like a dog with two cocks……which do i use first.

                                So Premium price £1849 for the Ultimate.

                                Less your £750 NVP if it applies.

                                Thats a bonza deal.

                                    What is this “well known facebook page” that I don’t know about?🤣

                                    Not a ‘well known facebook page’ but via ‘well known facebook groups‘. Simply use the search term ‘Motability’ in ‘facebook groups’ and request to join any relevant groups – there are a few nowadays often where dealers post Motability discounts and offers. Some groups are quite strict on members re-posting offers onto other websites and immediately ban them from the group, hence my being a somewhat relectant to identify named groups.

                                    I got banned off that group,for just reposting a price list on here when Q2 prices were annouced,would love to get unbanned.

                                      I sat in the red one on the country wide tour at the end of last year,it has some nice features.

                                       

                                      When it comes on Motability who’s betting the AP’s will make your eye’s water.

                                        @Kezo you were right about the year of manufacture,it was built late May 2023,showed me an official document in a personalised video.

                                        He said that all the current applicable TSB will be sorted,if there are any during the PDi.

                                        He has ordered new mats (i bet the originals were nicked).

                                        The charging cable is in the boot,and the V2L is on the rear seat.

                                        I got £250 knocked off as i asked them to match an offer that is currently on Motaclarity.

                                        Not going to pick car up yet,i am going to try and eek it out to the end of the month,when the new Q3 prices might be out early….wink wink.

                                          @mickc, Motability would never allow a dealership to push old models, or old MY as it would cost them money when they sell it on. Like yourself, I phoned Hyundai and asked if they had stock Ultimates, they did at another garage, but the manager said he would have to make sure the MY was the latest as MB would not approve it. Yes the car is still wrapped in protective film. Its not even been used as a showroom car.

                                          Cheers @Ioniq for that info.

                                           

                                          Will the supplying dealer know the build date (exactly) of the car i am getting.

                                           

                                          I’m just worried in case they try and pull  fast one,i looked online and found that the old 305ps AWD version was still in production in 2022,and the 325ps AWD began production in Dec 2021.

                                          I think i need to know what the car’s KWh is,its either 72.6   or 77.4.

                                            It’s black round the windows, that is the protective stickers you can see.

                                             

                                            I feel much better now you have said that @Jim thanks for telling me.

                                             

                                            In the morning do you think i should ask for the MY of the car and pics or a video of all aspects of the car ?

                                             

                                            I have to travel 130 miles to see the car in the flesh.

                                              In this screenshot the side body trim around the door windows looks like chrome/shiney,this was available on the early Ultimate models ,and on the later models the window surrounds are black.

                                                  @Rico the top list is it normal for cars to be in stock for over 200 days.

                                                   

                                                  And the MY23 vintage I5 is that likely to have the ICCU fault waiting to happen ?

                                                   

                                                  Wonder if the Black standard AWD Ultimate at Gatwick is the car my dealer has sourced,that has been sat about for 279 days………..good or bad thing ?
