    That is correvt. The dealer has to give 5 days notice to Motability before the car can handed over.

    At what point do you get the 8 digit official VW order no? ordered last weekend have an order form from the dealer with estimated delivery date of 9th April (seems so long away) but no order no on it ordered rline tech in white with side scan with £400 off ap

     

    If you have got a good salesman would should have been given an order straight. I my self entered my order directly into the ordering system (supervised by my salesman) and at the end of the order it threw up a confirmation with the order number at the top of the page.

     

    If they cannot provide number possibly means they have had their quota and cannot physically order until tomorrow at the earliest..

    I know Zaheer and Winston are on that forum along with myself. I have the same user name on that site as it appears on this one.

    You get hooked reading the topics and posts.

    You need to adjust the acoustics sounds to get it to beep on lock/unlock which unfortunately you cannot do in Carista.

    As you might of guessed your dealer is spouting a load of codswallop.

    Luckily where I live the VW dealer has probaly the best Motability Specialist and there are quite a few of members on here that will agree.

     

    Once you get the Tig you will be overwhelmed with it and you’ll soon forget the BS you have got from your dealer.

    Enjoy your new Tig.

    Well after 14 years of being a VW customer, I am switching to Mercedes. Ordering a Mercedes B Class Sport tomorrow in Black. My sister drives an A-Class and she loves the interior. I had a look at the B-class on Sunday and it was impressive. I currently drive a Touran and although I like the car, I felt like change. Only downside is no Adapative Cruise Control and i have to pay for AppleCarplay on the Sport model.

     

    Hi Craig

    So you are passing on your Touran? Did you get the new one last year?

    When I got mine in Oct 2018 it landed in the UK on Sept 23rd 2018, then it sat at the dealers for 5 weeks as it could not be registered nor taxed as VW had not released the WLTP figures as mine was one of the first to land in the UK with WLTP 2 certificate.

    When I ordered mine the dealer could not get hold of my spec of Tiguan and I ended up test driving my own car.

    You all will enjoy the Tig, its a great car and I still enjoy getting behind the wheel.

    The reason for that is when the vehicle is offloaded from the ship it is scanned which creates a notification. Usually the second stage 6 message means it has moved within the port and usually means it has moved to the transporter lanes.

    Newfie, thank you for posting the pics. They look amazing. I wasn’t quite sure what they were so the pics are perfect. Such a shame they’re not adding them any more. They look so cool.

    No problem.  After not having them for a year it’s quite to see them glowing.

    The only thing that let’s the Tiguan nav down is the incorrect speed limits.

    There were concerns in 2018 as a few North American Tiguans went up in smoke due to water ingress on sunroof hence they disconnected on the first MY2019 models.

    Not forgetting that dealerships get a bonus for the amount of cars sold per month. So that is also taken into account when processing a Motability order.

    Wife has the VW Tiguan Match 2.0tdi 150 DSG 2wd and it is a great car. If you are into Cruis Control the Adaptive Cruise on the Tiguan especially when linked to the DSG gearbox. Great on fuel as she is getting between 48 -55 mpg.  Very sure footed on the road with not a lot of body roll you would expect from an SUV.

    You will need to speak to Roger on that one.

    For anyone who has not dealt with Roger you will be pleasantly surprised that there are good Motability specialists out there and Roger is the best I have ever dealt with. I back up what Zaheer76UK has said about him.

    But please if you are a distance away from you do need to be sat with Roger at time of ordering and when you collect the vehicle. this is a Motability stipulation which Roger abides to so please do not ask to order the car over the phone as you will get a very polite no can do.
