    Default Dacia Duster ad they wont show here

    Renault will probably spend a fortune to make a forgettable local ad no doubt

    The old "Banned Ad" thing again as the title of the YT posting.

    Anyway, interesting to see a Brit couple and a Brit salesman involved in a transaction buy a left hand drive car.

    It will be great when it goes on sale here. Wonder how many Renault will sell? Im also wondering how the Renault club folks will view them?

    I found the ad amusing, but it reinforced the general misconception that carsale people are leeches. How it would sell cars, I don't know.

    Although in this case, the old couple probably deserved it!

    It's a dig a roman gypsies, playing on the Romanian origins of the car.

    It's all cliche' gypsy bargaining banter. Not too many gypsies in oz - no one would get it

    Loved it, light hearted and IMO, taken in the context explained, totally understood.
    Nope wouldn't work here but they should employ an advertising Company to do similar here with ozzie undertones. surfing and beer maybe?

    Quick, before Haakon berates you for even considering using windoze, activate your flash plugin, you can turn it off again afterwards to stop all those annoying animated adverts, assuming you are using Firefox.....

    cheers,
