We came within an inch of buying a new megane cabriolet this week, but a low trade in and pauper status prevented us in the end. I thought others might be interested in the details.
Renault are apparently clearing the last remaining stocks of megane cabs. The GT Line was $47990 driveaway until recently (they were up over $50k drive away at one stage). The deal we got offered on a pearl white GT Line was $33490 driveaway (NSW rego). A $20k saving on their highest previous driveaway price I believe.
This was 2015 build, 2016 complianced vehicle with delivery kms only. A new car but sold as used with the balance of the 5yr unlimited kilometre warranty etc. Renault have apparently sold them as a job lot to an auctioneer a few months ago, who are selling them to dealers on demand via Renault. Mostly white, with a couple of blues so not a huge choice in colour but we wanted a white one anyhow. The warranty was activated during that sale "several months ago" according to the sales guy I spoke to (Matt at Penrith Renault - nice bloke and recommended based on my experience despite not completed the deal).
Assuming they don't sell, they may get even cheaper.
The kicker was being offered $2000 trade in on my wife's Scenic 2 Dynamique (2007, first reg 2009) with 70000 kms on the still functioning dash. Often described by our renotech mechanic as the best he has seen and worked on in Sydney.
Looks like I'll still trawl gumtree for an old Peugeot 306 cab instead!
