    Default Hello aussies, what about this!!

    I say hello to all, as french i seen your chat here for mounths, i took decision to register, i really didn't know that australia could sell french cars, that is not the real strategy of renault, european brand for europeans, anyway, hope ou enjoy your cheap french product over there!!

    was stunned by this one, that is rumoured in french specialised medias that could come to be produced for sunny place in USA and asia, oceania, due to the fact that renult is supposed to use Nissan world wide distributors to sell somes cheap french cars! i'm not convinced!

    but this one was appreciated from over sea specialists! i agree with them!

    you?

    That is one good looking car. The Renaussan influence is visible. I think Renault's design have lept ahead of the pack under le Quement(how do you set up your keyboard for the funny thingy over the 'e'; I used to know how to do it way back in win3.11 )

    It would be great to see the Wind out here in Australia, but with all the talk about dealer antics here of late would you trust them to get it right.

    Hello Real Frog,

    You may be interested to know that French cars were assembled here a while back, with a significant amount of local content.

    Anyway, a large Nissan dealer here in Western Australia is also the Renault dealer - so it IS happening!

    Stick around and give us some French perspective!

    Cheers

    not really, the Wind first draws was made in 1998, before the nissan takeover if i read the notes of Le quément on his design, he wouldn't be famous copying other design! is the Megane II vel satis, Espace etc.. looklikes other brand, i don't think so!

    and in france we use 437 code page, so le Quément is wrote like that!

    zory

    oops, and the renaussan stuff revolution is coming, no one is talking about, but the new engines block coming up ares just stunning, and here it's a pure renaussan design, i mean 30% less weight, 28% less consoumption and 7% more torque for the new 1.5l fuel block coming into Clio, Tinda, Modus, Micra etc... challengers don't purpose half better!!

    HERE...............

    ask when you don't know!

    bye

    Hey Real Frog,
    I was not in any way saying leQuement was copying anyones designs. The Wind to my eye has similar lines to the latest Nissan 350Z....may-be some of the Wind lines were drawn on for the new Z cars. Highly likely.

    Anyway, no matter what happens, I hope sincerely that Renault has the last say in the direction of the alliance. It would be sad to see Renault silenced by the Jap influence.

    Chris.

    P.S. post any pics of the more unique Renaults you see on the roads too....
    Are there many Spiders on the roads there?

    Read the fine print... compared to existing Nissan engines We have no idea how they compare to other engines on the market

    Go look at the new engine BMW/Peugeot are developing for their small cars/MINI.

    yes as Ford and others i seen all, they gain not half tha weight consoumption and torque of the nissan renault new 1.5l and actual engines, course they ares actually introduced and not in 4 years!

    it seems you didn't seen
    "*1 The new HR15DE is compared with Nissanfs QG15DE engine, and the new MR20DE with the QR20DE.
    *2 The fuel economy improvement was calculated according to Nissanfs in-house standards that combine various driving conditions, including congestion, city and expressway driving, based on the results of a survey of real-world driving conditions."

    QR15DE is the last year micra and Clio engines! famous about their consoumption especially!

    it's a real revolution! especially when fuel baril is climbing $50

    "Anyway, no matter what happens, I hope sincerely that Renault has the last say in the direction of the alliance. It would be sad to see Renault silenced by the Jap influence. "

    It seems that their success is from a full respect of national traditions and independence for strategy, Renault haven't influence on nissan, and versus, appart 2 or 3 guys, they work together for improvment and share technologies, Renault bring his experience of diesel with Dci engines, and nissan on big fuel engines efficiences, they share platforms to reduce cost, but the global strategy is quite diferent, Nissan haven't the same market than Renault, on that not a Renault boy will teach a Nissan san how to design and sell cars for US Japan market, and versus for renault in europe!

    Nissan don't sell french or european car in Japan or US, and that will last long, and it's not a merger, Renault own a majority in Nissan 45%, but as partner, not boss, Nissan is bigger than renault, and Nissan will be a global brand as Toyota far before Renault, anyway, it's not a finality for renault, cause each market have differents needs, identification toward a car is important in client's mind set, we aren't in the 70's where it was easy to car industry to grow abroad, today if renault want to sell car in US, they will buy a american brand, it's easier!

    my opinion!

    Their comparison is quite legitimate, especially with the magnitude of the improvements, as Nissan's engines are pretty competitive anyway.

    For example, when BMW states that its current M3 chassis is 50% stiffer in torsion, it usually says something like 'compared to the previous model'. Same thinking - it's a significant improvement worth noting, whatever way you look at it.
