    Default After five long months its here .....

    I ordered in July to make sure i got what i wanted ... and it finaly arrived at the dealer this week.

    Megane RS 250 Cup Trophee, White with all the options

    Ordered from Peter Warren's ... Through the sales manager Kevin Abood. They came to the National Motorkahana last year and brought cars as part of Renaults sponsorship. The sales girl there was really nice so i gave them a call when i was ready to order. I called an went an saw every dealer in Sydney and he was the only one who ever got back to me. I have been lucky enough to buy lots of new cars in my time and i must say he has been fantastic.... the best dealer ever !

    Nothing is a problem and always rings you back and trys 110 % to get you what you want. When others said they could not firm up a price...he chased and chased Renault an within a few days we had done a deal.
    We agreed on the price and as it turned out the RRP went down, so he adjusted his price down as well ... No other dealer would have done that i think.

    So if your in Sydney ...give them a go ... Kevin is a really nice guy.

    I called in there yesterday morning to take a sneek peek at my car, and thought i would get the headlight globe changed on the Scenic ( cause you need to have hands of a contortionist to get the globe out) and the service guys were really nice helpful, sent me around to their nice cafe for a free coffee....nothing was a problem, cost $40 inc fitting and light adjustment ...Sweet

    Anyway ....My R26 went to a good home in Oct so i have been sharing my wifes Scenic.

    Cant wait until thur when i pick up ... I am excited

    I will post some pics once i pick up and its all nice and clean

    Due to the weather last Thur had to put off the pic up until friday morning.

    Havent driven it much...but MY god its quick an feels so more sorted on the road, corners flat as.

    If you were in the market for something with heaps of poke an that looked HOT an were sick of the thousands of Golfs around put this on your shopping list.

    Default Now I'm jealous...

    They reall do look great and I'm yet to hear much bad about them.

    They look good in white too.

    White really is the new hot color (or lack thereof)

    One Q, are the vents behind the front wheels functional (ie for brake heat/aero extraction) or more a cosmentic thing.

    If they do a R26R style thing it'll be a beast.

    Have fun with the Meg....

    I did something very stupid the other day - dropped into a dealer and had a proper perve at one.

    I really must stop lusting after things I cant have...

    Yep - White is the new black.

    10x improvement in the looks dept over the old model.

    Ren Aust must be kicking themselves these haven't been available since launch in Sept 2008.

    It may surprise you that many people liked the big bum Meganes (myself included).

    I don't know why so many people assume (and dismiss) the old model as ugly. It was a monster seller in Europe.

    My ex had an early Megane and loved it,Took her about a year to find something to replace it with,everything she drove didn't stack up.I liked the look of it and it was a bit more individual than the new one but the 250 looks hot to me.

    I would be pleased to have either in my garage!!
