      They’re not leather in the Tekna, it’s some form of cheap looking plastic.

      Yes, some vegan alternative 🥕 poor carrots 😁

        I had many test drives of the e-power & e-4orce and have waited since it has joined the scheme for the Tecna trim to join, which looks less likely every quarter that goes by.

        Yes the highest trim level is currently the NConnecta. Still nice though. Think you lost the glass roof, 20″ alloys, HUD and elec leather seats.

        Still a cracking car though. What was your thoughts on the test drives. I haven’t driven one ?

          @phaedra my husband had the same issue in the ariya. It was very odd as it certainly looked initially like it’d be big enough but it was properly squashed in there for him. @sagwala123 I absolutely loved the xtrail and if I hadn’t got a massive bee in my bonnet about going full EV this time I would have definitely ordered it.

          It does tick a lot of boxes for sure.

            I looked at thw Ariya as it had the highest roof height, couldn’t get in it without my head hitting the roof and the steering wheel jamming on my legs (but I am 6′ 5″). However, for the trim level and that AP I think the X-Trail is overpriced. Bear in mind that if you can go full EV there are alternatives (Smart #1, Enyaq etc.) that start from £0 AP, even the Enyaq 85 Edition is only £1,499 and could also save you around £1000 to £2000 in fuel over the 3 years depending on you driving, mileage etc.

            Yes, I tend to agree. We currently have an ID4 EV on order and think the deposit on the X-Trail would have to be much better than it is to be tempted.

            It is, however, one of a dying breed of, what I would call, your typical “4×4” style and shape, rather than a crossover or SUV. Which I think it has in its favour.

            As such, access both in and out is so much easier because of the ride height and the flatter threshold.

              Does anyone know of any dealers that physically have an e3008 in stock to view ?

              Difficult to order without seeing one in the flesh. My local dealership isn’t going to see one until at least April

                Ordered an ID4 Style 6 weeks ago. Was told April/May delivery, but as yet we haven’t even got a factory build date. So I’m not holding my breath. I have had it in writing from the dealer that the order will 100% be the Style and not switched to a Match. We particularly liked the panoramic roof, which the Match wouldn’t have. So I wanted the assurance we would definitely get the Style. Will be disappointed to receive the Match and I wouldn’t complete the order if it turns out that is what arrives. However if the Match and GTX come on the Motability scheme to order, I would be tempted to order the GTX

                Yeah i wont be accepting the car if its a match that turns up. It was the glass roof that swung my decision over the enyak and also few other bits like black headlining, nicer alloys.. What colour did you go for? Id like the id7 to appear for £1499 😂[/quote We’ve gone for the red. My wife liked the black but I liked the contrast red to black roof and obviously you lose that with a black car. Sound like you ordered similar to me then, so hopefully good news. Will watch the Motability website closely though to see when the ordering changes to Match and see whether the GTX comes on and what price 🤔

                Red was my second choice but the dealer said id have to pay £800 extra for it?? I always thought premium paints was just few hundred extra and not the whole cost 😳 I can see the prices increasing next quarter now they have filled their order books up with motability customers especially with the enyaq! When i was looking late December the enyaq was 2 months wait and now its 7 months.

                Well I was told an extra £150 I think so I went for it. I’ll double check because I ain’t stumping £800

                      I think given the ID5 is really an ID4 coupe I’m ok to post here that my car order is confirmed!! ID5 style pro moonstone grey currently 4 week wait as a car from stock. 🙂

                      That’s interesting, which dealer. I might check for ID4 stock. I still haven’t had a factory build date yet. It’s been four weeks.

                      is it ok if I direct message you the dealer? I prefer not to give my location out on a public forum

                      Yes of course, please do. Do you need my email address ?

                          I’ve never had a lease where the AP isn’t paid until collection and if in the meantime the AP drops between ordering and collection have always paid the lower amount. ?? Since when has this changed. Have an ID4 on order and dealer hasn’t taken any deposit.

                            Anyone managed to order a style pro? As im getting all different answers when phoning vw dealers around me. I’m guessing I’ll just have to place an order and see.

                            yes you can order both stock and factory build . The dealer needs to go their vw hub and there’s a specific note that motability can still order the old style trim , pro style etc

                            Thank you, ill order one sometime this week. I did ring my local vw dealer again and think they have been updated with new info you just said. Have you ordered one? Im thinking of the going the lighter blue.

                            We ordered the red with black roof style pro about three weeks ago. Still waiting for a build date ?

                              Do you know if the Match spec is going to replace the life and style pro on the Motability ordering platform ?

                                I Recently noticed a post from Caffyns Audi Brighton about stock availability and dealer support offers. A big shout out to Nathan GM for doing this. I think this is a superb way of promoting Motability and generating business for the dealership. I have had a few dealers that seem very uninterested when you say that you are a Motability customer. Prime example, my own Local Audi dealership in Tamworth. If the Q4 had wowed me (which it didn’t) I would have done the 350 mile round trip to deal with Caffyns Brighton rather than give my business to Tamworth. I think if more dealers could promote on here , particularly stock availability that would be a huge tick for customer service. Well done Nathan, Caffyns Audi, Brighton.

                                Not sure if you have ever had any dealings with Nissan/Suzuki Polesworth but I found them the worst company I have ever dealt with ever! The salesman was very eager when we first walked into the showroom but the moment we mentioned Motability he lost interest completely. At one point my wife started asking a question about the Swift Sport but he actually snapped at her that it wasn’t on Motability so she didn’t need to know! She was actually asking as a private customer, as I am the Motability customer. Needless to say we didn’t order from them and will never go back. On a different note, TMS Volvo at Hinckley were superb! We were made to feel a valued customer at every point of the process.

                                I do yes. That must be a very recent experience too because they’ve only been a Suzuki dealer for about four weeks. Been Nissan for years, but I think Nissan are pushing EV heavily and they don’t think they have the clientele for solely the EV market son have recently taken on Suzuki too.

                                Quite shocked to hear that to be fair because I know Martin who owns the dealership and Steve the Sales Manager and me personally have always had good service from Polesworth. Perhaps worth a mention to Steve. They wouldn’t be happy at all to hear you received bad service because they have traded well on loyal local business for many years and probably 99% of Nissans locally have come from Polesworth.

                                  I looked at all 3. I immediately ruled out the Q4 as it felt less spacious inside plus with the Coupe only coming in Sport trim it had no facility to change things like the wheels. I then looked at the ID4/5. The ID5 in the showroom looked quite nice until the salesman told me it had around £6k of extras on it. When he took me outside to look at one without the extras I thought straight away no chance. Then onto the Skoda. Ticked all the boxes as far as specification is concerned and like most people have said you get more bang for your buck especially with the rules going back to a 3 year lease. I did have a final visit to BMW yesterday as my car was in for a service, but with my back condition getting worse the cars I would like are too uncomfortable to get in and out of. Plus the AP’s on BMW’s are getting ridiculous for a 3 year lease especially when you add the things you need. I went back to Skoda to check that I’d made the right decision and the Sportline Plus Coupe that was in the showroom confirmed that I had.

                                  I am looking forward to the first 2024 models to start hitting the showroom. I shall revisit both Skoda and VW again when they have a physical model just to be sure 👍

                                  Hope you enjoy the Enyaq it is a stunning car. Especially the coupe. We couldn’t go sports back because we need the boot height for the Great Dane

                                    I wanted the Q4 Quattro by far my favourite in looks and ease of use of equipment but an AP of £4299 with no option to add electric adjustment to the seats just felt too much. Enyaq suite edition had everything but I didn’t find the dash easy to use or intuitive. In fact I was overwhelmed by it. The id4 pro style sits happily in the middle for me. A good car, intuitive dash and if I’m putting up with manual adjustment then £1499 or if I add on electric adjustment £ 3000 ish still less than ( my beloved) q4. If money was no object it’d be q4 all the way but I’m very happy to be ordering the id4 tomorrow. Anything goes wrong then I’ll order the Enyaq and work out the dash in my own time.

                                    Well, that’s fair play👍 and totally agree. We all have different requirements and likes/dislikes.

                                    We went the other way and cancelled the Enyaq in favour of the ID4 but it was a very close run thing.

                                    For me the Q4 wasn’t a contender. I think I would put the Toyota BZ4X above the Q4.

                                      why is it that some dealers lose interest when you mention motability? Most i’ve spoken to a great

                                      I don’t know if it’s actually a Motability thing or luck of the drawer with being unlucky in getting the divet who just isn’t interested in life.period 🤣

                                      The person I had the misfortune of serving me at my local Tamworth Audi dealership was about as useful as the G in gnome.

                                      I am the sort of person who buys from people and that makes a huge difference to me. Obviously the deal has to be right, but I would happily travel to receive first class customer service rather than give my business to a brain-dead oik.

                                        Currently got a factory order ID4 on order but could definitely be tempted into a stock Q4 if the deal is right.

                                          This is a cracking way of getting stock vehicle availability out there.

                                          I would be more than happy to travel for a stock vehicle rather than an unknown wait for a factory order.

                                            Good morning all, We have quite a bit of stock that is deliverable between now and the end of March supplied by Brighton Audi.

                                                “what I can 100% confirm is the car we ordered will be the car you will get.”

                                                So I have it in writing that I will be getting what I ordered, namely, New 2024 ‘Style’ ID4 with the Pano roof as standard.

                                                  Wasn’t the match the cheap and nasty trim on VW’s other models.

                                                  Back in the day, you are correct I think, yes.

                                                      Wasn’t the match the cheap and nasty trim on VW’s other models.

                                                      Match is the entry level 2024 id4

                                                      Not quite, the ID4 is getting replaced by the Match Pro and Match Pro 4M. It seems that the ‘Match’ spec is model specific and trim levels vary on different models. But the updated VW websites are clearly saying that on the ID4 the Match replaces the life and style ….. Definitely watching this space.
