Congrats. But I just cannot get on with the 250 at the moment. Just, erm, not my cup of tea. I see the problem though... The Megane for not much more than the 200? It is a tough one, but I'd solve that by either sticking with a 200 or opting for a FRS - although the FRS is more and potentially slower than the Megane! Anyway, glad to see you've made a decision. What were the deciding factors in the end chap?
jamie - I took both out once again for a decent test drive ie. proper b road blasting with mixed motorway. The Salesman Mathew at lookers chelmsford really let me open the taps on the meggy and i thnk that was my mistake on the first test drive last week.
First up was the red 200 + cup chassis and it felt solid and great but it didnt feel much in pace or difference in comparison to my 172.
The meggy was hugely more capable and it certainly felt a step up from the 200.
The crunch really came to numbers and the fact i had the clio for 5 years and fancied a change mate. With the options speced on the 200 that I thought were essentials like ac and speedlines it came to 10 quid more a month than the meggy. Although in the long run its the 200 which will have the financial advantage. We will just have to see if they actually hold on to their value better to suceed the GFV of 14k.
I tried out the rs monitor which i thought was a funky gadget but not worth the 500 quid option. The recaros were not an option full stop, they were just too tight. I think i was wearing my "fat" jeans though.
Black looked so nice against the LEDS and standard black alloys. .
A FRS would have been the ideal balance imo. Fantastic pace and excitement but no way near my budget. If you can afford it, go for it.
Only by either buying a car the dealer already has, buying one from a cancelled order or buying second hand.
The RenaultSport factory closes for the entire month of August which only adds to the delay.
if i keep the 6k miles per year and go over that but buy the car at the end will the final value change, theres a green 200 no recaros in renault gateshead so im going to see if they will match the offer
