Can't wait to see what happens on July 1st really hope the x1 m sport auto comes down in price ( doubt it tho lol) would really like the auto but can't afford the AP on it so will more than likely go for the manual.
Well Motability have been in touch to tell me I can either start looking for a new vehicle or get a price to buy my vehicle off them or both after 23 August this year.
As the deposit for the Auto Scenic is over £2500 it does seem slightly unfair to me that the more disabled you are the bigger the deposit you need to pay. I've learnt that cars that have done more than 30k rend to have more expensive things go wrong with them. Twinned with reassessment for PIP anytime from Jan 2014 and the North West may be the starting point for assessments, (a little bird told me), it might be safer to keep my old Scenic until after the assessment as you never know with computer medicals - decisions, decisions!!

Itersesting reading the comments about Insurance after Motability as I was discussing this with them myself last week to ascertain the position which is as many have said on these forums.
I have also been looking at various car broker and other sites and its amazing what deals are available if you shop around and can compromise a little, in some cases over 30% off list price. A contact in the trade told me that if Motability see a significant decline in their fleet with PIP its likely to put more downward pressure on prices as manufacturers look to personal buyers to fill the void, not necessarily ex motability customers but personal customers in general.
