        So i’ts not on the scheme, and there is nothing confirmed other than a casual conversation with a salesman.

          Seems there is quite a number of changes, especially with the new ccNc operating system I would not take the older vehicle.

          (videos not to UK spec, but gives an idea)

            @defaceman7 there is also a normal gloss version of the grey colour, that is the exact same colour but with the normal clear coat gloss finish

             

            Ecotronic grey, maybe have a look at that is any doubts over the matte paint finish

              I don’t have any experience of the vehicle but there was some pretty negative reviews by electrifying regarding range and some other stuff, it might be worth watching that before making any concrete decisions.

               

              Im not a fan of all the plastic on this car, I seen a picture where someone had wrapped it so it was all body coloured and the vehicle looks so so good, I wonder why Toyota has decided not have at least one version of this car all colour coded.

                Reading this, it is really really not been a good experience for you.

                 

                Somebody at Motability needs to own this issue and apologise and put it right ASAP

                please keep us updated.

                  There is clearly regular issues with Ohme.

                  Is there any central way to log these issues with Motability so that either the don’t happen or a different supplier is chosen? If Motility don’t know how bad it is it will only continue and with more and more EV’s becoming available it might only get worse.

                  Could be the only way they make the changes needed or select a better supplier.

                    I’m getting the impression that Skoda dealers aren’t very good. Never had these problems with BMW.

                    I think it just depends on who the have working at the dealership. The smaller/independent dealers round my area have always been good regardless of what brand.

                     

                    Skoda has recently changed to a direct agency sales, so the process is completely different, not for the better it seems

                      I’ve placed my order for an Ioniq 5 Ultimate tech RWD. Originally I was quoted 6-8 months. My current car ends in 6 weeks and didn’t want to wait this long, dealer managed to find me a car from stock, which will be ready for renew date. I really liked the look of shooting star grey so when I saw this was available I made my order. Since placing my order I’ve had 2nd thoughts as heard different opinions on matte cars in regards to cleaning and maintaining. Some say avoid unless your happy to clean on your drive every week with special formula, where as some say the SSG colour is not as bad and there’s no problem with automated car washes as long as you avoid the polish setting, just use foam wash. Dealer has offered me Gen 3 glass coat for £150, which adds a cost to the car suppository protecting it from chemicals and also a protection for the light grey leather interior. Has anybody 1) had an ionic 5 in matte? If so what’s your opinion experience? 2) had Gen 3 applied or know anything about it? Is it worth it £150? thanks Adam

                       

                      Shooting star grey is the best colour for the Ioniq 5

                       

                      There is no special care other than not using waxes on the paint finish.

                       

                      It’s always best to hand wash any vehicle, there are a number of owner on you tube that show you how they look after it, but most will tell you other not using waxes etc on the finish its very very easy to have.

                       

                      I would not recommend the Gen3 product, I would agree with mark these products are vastly over prices and do not offer any real protection other than for a month

                      there are wash products available for matte finishes that are the same price as other washes

                      DO NOT use hand car washes they use the cheapest products available, which contain reach harsh chemicals despite them saying they don’t and are not really any good for standard finish products too

                      Go ahead with the matte shooting star grey and enjoy the vehicle, as long are you able to hand car wash the vehicle or get someone to do this regularly for you.

                          Appreciate that Scott. Im told by my dealer that my car is not suitable for my kind of mileage… 4/6 miles a day in general. Never a problem with the Pug? So, what kind of car is suitable now?

                           

                          A full electric vehicle would be very suitable for such a low milage, if you can change at home that is an ideal solution, if you are not able to charge at home, it would require. weekly charge at a rapid charger cost would be similar to petrol cars.

                           

                          the only other option is to stick with petrol or PHEV and go for a brand that is less susceptible to the issue, Kia/Hyundai vehicles seem to have more issues with the filters

                            Skoda Glasgow refusing to alter AP. Too be fair they have been shocking with any communication. Never thought I’d say it but wish we had went to Arnold Clark

                             

                            Cancel the order and go elsewhere and re order

                              Almost all vehicles now petrol and diesel have particulate filters.

                              a hybrid vehicle would still have a combustion engine, thus have the same filter system too

                                    UPDATE: After many phone calls with Motability Operations and the Skoda dealer, they have managed to reinstate my order and with the new lower AP. My online account is now showing the new order dated 2nd April, the correct car & new AP. However, it is still awaiting approval so no contract or PIN as yet but I think that will happen shortly. My contact at the Skoda dealership has been excellent and in his words “I’m working for you” has showed in the satisfactory conclusion of today’s events. So all that is needed now is for someone at Motability Operations to click a button that says “APPROVE”! Fingers crossed! 🤞

                                      Thanks so much for that, I have popped her an email. am still not sure if the namsen edition or the ultimate tech pack 239kw. Not sure I love the wing mirror screens 🙂

                                       

                                      there are numerous issues with the DSM, they stopped producing them Namsan for a while due to this, and the new facelift Ioniq 5 (not yet out in the UK) has a completely redesigned DSM

                                      There are a few people on here with the Namsan, they might not have experienced any issues with them, yet.

                                        Well, I emailed my contact at the dealership to request a reduction in the AP. He obliged & deleted my order with Motorbility. Tried to add the new order & the system wouldn’t let him because I’ve got less than 12 months on my award. So I’ve spent all afternoon on the phone to Motorbility who are trying to reinstate the original order! At the moment I have no car showing on Motorbility & now waiting for a phone call to say uf I’ve got a car coming or not! Apparently, changing the AP also changes your order number, prices on dealer order plus a lot of other unknowns! A bit of a nightmare really! And I still don’t know what’s happening! So, it’s not that simple as people on this forum make out!

                                         

                                        Oh no, that’s a complete nightmare!, I hope there is a swift resolution.

                                            We don’t, maybe the wrong word, but just in this thread alone there are 2 different owners stating different ranges, and since the OP posted a picture of the “estimated” range before any trip it does not confirm anything unfortunately.

                                            At current temps it would also be highly unlikely that we would see the theoretical maximum vehicle range just yet.

                                              It does say that they averaged 4.2kw though, which backs up what they’re saying.

                                              Where? what’s shown is a prediction, before the vehicle is driven, that will change once the vehicle is driven actual range can only be measured from a full battery to zero and mileage driven at the end, not the start. Im afraid this is the trap most EV users fail to see. It is only an estimate based on the past, not what you will get going forward.

                                              Where? In the first sentence – ‘After 280 mile trip a mixture of all roads averaging 4.2kw’

                                               

                                              yes he said that, but there is no proof

                                                This is more a true reflection, especially from a vehicle build on a non bespoke EV platform

                                                I would also add 200 miles true range is more what I’d expect considering  current temps etc.
