There is a misleading article on another website which implied that as DLA is going up £2.70 a week and thus £418 over the course of a lease that AP's should fall by £400. Its utter rubbish of course as details of this rise has been known for some time and already factored in as are future rises (which are estimated).

Its almost midnight and not a sniff of the new prices on Motability's website. Will check again in the morning. Womder what will be the bargain of next quarter?
Fiat are the only ones I can find so far:
Looks like the APs for the Fiat 500 are down as much as £500 for some of the higher spec trims, not too much change elsewhere, a few pounds off here and there, but it doesn't look like there's any increases, which is hopefully good news for other manufacturers.
EDIT: Ford have got their offers up for the next quarter, but their full price list is still last quarter's:

see i noticed something strange in q1 prices and now the same for q2.
each time bmw has had a different price for their car on their price list http://bmw.co.uk/images/bmwuk/motabi...Full%20PDF.pdf in comparison to what motability puts on its site!
for example on bmw website the 120d m sport 5 door is 1999 on motabilitt its 2999.
last time that happened, bmw had changed its price to match the motability website!
Motability have updated the price list, ignore the Jan-March 2012 heading. Just had a quick look.
1977 cars and now 554 automatics.
Some interesting cars, Volvo S60 SE Lux Auto, £2999Ap. Very well equipped and nice to look at. A golf Match 122ps DSG (auto) now only £649. Merc B class, all models up in price by several hundred! Some Fords up too. BMW 1 series, now includes M Sport. 120d £1999 and £2999 in auto. Also offering X1 in M sport Auto £2999 and 4wd in SE guise at £2999. Some Mondeos's have gone, Ford have ditchd the 203BHP versions.
At 1st look pretty uneventful in the main. For thiose who are willing to spend the Volvo S60 SE Lux is a really good buy, fantastic equipment level, nice looking and good to drive. Still going for a 1 series, and although more expensive than the Volvo once specced up is more economical thus negating the extra cost and is more engaging to drive. Its also smaller and has the practicality of a hatch.
Good luck with your own searches.
As this has been such an informative thread I have continued it here rather than start a new one.

Why spen all that money on a Volvo when you can get the Mondeo Titanium X for less, much better spec and more engaging to drive than both teh Volvo and the crappy BMWs?
For auto users, Nissan Qashqai petrol Tekna 4WD now on list for £2999
Most of teh Fords have not moved pricing, still only the basic V60 on the scheme for auto users, so losing out yet again to manual drivers, no sign of Hondas SE+ to ES offer.

Seat alhambra S auto on scheme, Vauxhall I(nsignia Elite auto now availble but only in saloon form, not estate, and "Tech Line" spec added

they've dropped the Exclusive Antarra by £1000
Looking at 4x4 SUVs (manual) Suzuki are back on the list with the Jimny starting at £299 and the Grand Vitara at £1,599. The Honda CR-V SE+ has dropped by almost £2000 down to £1,799
Looked at the Renault Grand Scenic to see if it had dropped in price and there's now only 2 on the scheme! manual at £1,999 Automatic at . . . . . £2,799 !!!!!
