Laugh! Makes me worry.
I had the pleasure of being in a lecture by Fintan O’Toole, his book (Heroic Failure: Brexit and the Politics of Pain) is an excellent read, he explains it perfectly not as a UK Brexit but an English one.
Have you spoken to Motability? 0300 456 4566
They should be able to add substantial weight to your plight.
Lets hope the facelift Q2 comes back on quicker than the new A3. It’s a top seller for Motability, especially for under 25’s.October 21, 2020 at 11:32 am in reply to: April 2021 Benefits to rise by 0.5% – effect on Motability Scheme??? #127619
@bigdave The fact they are using CPI and not RPI is a discrace, was it not one of the changes Cameron made before Nick Clegg realised he could get involved.
It is only going one way, did I read the average cost of a new car has increased by 38% over the last decade? The only reason we are still here is the fact second hand values are holding up well, the minute these drop we are doomed. Doomed i’ll tell ye.
It’s a shame the MG HS plug-in is not only £9k more expensive at retail than the petrol equivalent but the 250bhp total output puts it over the 225bhp Scheme cap.
Plugin hybrids are just not financially viable, such a shame, they should have been the best of both worlds.October 20, 2020 at 3:02 pm in reply to: Right pops enough is enough where the hell are you. #127531
No dealers offering any further discounts? I think I saw a post mentioning a couple of places were doinga £600 discount
VW sales up nearly 40% for September year on year, new Golf released, ID cars coming soon along with Europes best selling SUV just being refreshed, VW dealerships don’t need to entice people with Motability discounts at the moment, you will be lucky to get enough fuel in the tank to get you to the forecourt at the moment.October 19, 2020 at 9:09 am in reply to: Right pops enough is enough where the hell are you. #127381
Pops contracted Covid and was ill in early June, he was asked to join a trial of hydroxycloroquine but declined. Two weeks later he was still struggling with fatigue and this is the last time I spoke to him, he promised to take some time away and come back stronger. I worry more and more as the days go by.
I don’t know what you are saying, or trying to say and failing. Just spit it out man – are you opposing the way we are going or just attempting to give us a balanced view? Because that is not coming across well either. You are sounding like a crackpot who has just discovered copy and paste.
Indeed, great news Covid is under control. D’oh.
I am, it’s horrible. One single death is one too many.
Thanks Wayne not to good thanks for posting on the Tiguan thread . Just a little bit annoyed that nobody from that thread including wmc had bothered looking at cars on scheme today thread posted at 6.55 this morning!
I’m sorry James, while I try my best, sometimes mornings can be a bit of a pinch point in my life.
Not helped this morning by someone, who will remain nameless, deciding to pour some washing up liquid into the dishwasher to get rid of the smell!
VW Tiguan added to Scheme: Click here for prices
1.5 petrol with 128bhp (manual)
1.5 petrol with 148bhp (Manual and DSG)
2.0 litre diesel with 148 2 or 4 WD (DSG only)
Thank you @bigdave. I was searching the forum myself trying to find his info, not helped by thinking his name was Richard.
Confused. The literature on the new Tiguan does not mention a 2.0 tsi, but the prices posted do. Apparently it’s been boosted by 10bhp – now 198bhp

Brydo. That is a new personal best, without question the longest post in forum history. Apparently Noris McWhirter is on his way from the Guinness book of records.
You, and Mrs T, are in our thoughts and prayers. Keep strong, physically and mentally.
Brilliant choice Daf, it’s the car I would go for right now if I could afford it and it had a third row of seats. Or perhaps the Honda E.

Dealerships are busy as they appear to be running on a skeleton staff, perhaps this will change when the furlough scheme ends on 31st October. Hopefully with everyone going back to work!
The Ioniq hybrid this quarter is nil, £199 and £699 across the trims. It looks like motorline have just updated their strap line and not their prices.
Ziggy falls into both camps, at home she is quiet and happy to sleep the day away, she keeps away from everyone as much as she can, unless required for sofa company. Once the lead comes out she switches, can’t wait to get to the park, runs around like a puppy and thinks every single person wants to see her. She never developed social etiquette around other dogs, approaching them at great speed, lying on her back then jumping up and running away in a large crazed circular movement. She loves the tennis ball and open water almost as much as she does food! Boy does she love the food, nothing is safe, many a child’s sandwich has disappeared as did the quality street one christmas, followed by an interesting few days picking colourful things up in the park!
That’s a great pic, Ziggy looks in great shape, Well done..
It’s a pic from a couple of years ago, she has a grey beard and a bit of middle aged spread now. She’s a great companion, well behaved too. (which is total luck)
I wanted to get a dog for my son, tried to get one from the pound but they would not let us as we had a ‘complex’ family apparently. I grew up with a SBT, she was the best dog ever, she went a little ‘funny’ later in life, developed a penchant for chasing a certain German Shepard. I cried for a week when we lost her.
I foolishly believed rear tints were included it as I on occasions place prosthetic equipment on the back seat is aftermarket tints not allowed as I would be doing it for security rather aesthetics ?
From memory if you go through the dealer, aftermarket tints should be okay, last thing motability want is their car being pulled for over tinted windows.
