shame they're not what they used to be. had so much fun in my 172


Nice car. Always wanted a Renault 5 Turbo in my younger days. Could never quite afford one so had to make do with a tatty S-Reg (Mark-1) Ford Escort

shame they're not what they used to be. had so much fun in my 172

Normally I'd agree with you, but 'RenaultSport' cars such as the GT220 … Normally I'd agree with you, but 'RenaultSport' cars such as the GT220 (and its older brother the 275) don't depreciate half as much as Renaults' normal line up. These cars rarely come up on the used market, and when they do, they command high prices. A two year old version of this (2014) is worth about 11k - about the same price as a Ford Focus ST-2 of the same age (Source - Glass's).



I'll admit I assumed its depreciation would be the same as any Renault, if its not, then it sounds more of a deal.

I dont have a problem with french cars beyond the fact that the depreciate heavily - I'd have one as a lease car or a used bargain.

At it's original RRP no thanks, but at this price it is great. Although did test drive one of these couple of years back (unsure if any changes since then) the torque steer was terrible and it really needed to have a slip diff. Found it actually wasn't as fast as what I was expecting it to be which was abit of a disappointment (again that was at the original full RRP). Interior was ok but not on par with other cars in this range (again at RRP price point!) Handling wise was pretty spot on and comparative to others at the price point. Wasn't that fussed about the exterior styling especially the big Renault badge (nothing against the brand just think the grill and badging could be nicer).
To sum up and stop babbling a steal at this price point and especially the sport tourer which if you look around at the competition in this price bracket would beat the rest hands down.
Just to compare also at this price point of a tourer you are looking at a Skoda Fabia Estate albeit only 1.2TFSI 110bhp with less spec and power. (Father has one)

I don't think your average person cares beyond what they pay at the pump and road tax. The problem is if they don't meet regulations and have to be modified so they do at the expense of performance and economy it's not the car you thought you were purchasing and it will hurt resale value.

As well as the NOx which affected the diesels there's talk of CO2 from petrol and diesel also being cheated on. The thing is I don't know if it affects cars which are still on sale or not. Volkswagen having been that forthcoming on what is and isn't affected.

Old thread but I just leased the touring version of this in Estoril blue. 0-62 in 4.7 seconds and get over 40mpg. It's crazy. Got it on 10k miles three payments down and then 23 payments over 24 months. 370 a month it's costing. A smidgeon over 4k a year for this beast will probably beat the depreciation on picking it up at 32-33 grand (the touring is a bit more expensive than this saloon).

I just hired the 330 petrol version, M sport with auto box. Was an upgrade on a 320 diesel.

Deary me. Took me two nights to work out how the keyless thingy worked, the engine cuts out to save fuel when you stop at traffic; me no likey. Steering not too hot without sports mode engaged. Visibility not great for reversing but has a sensor. Rapid though! Nice and comfortable on the motorway and lots of gadgets.

I can't afford one but would buy if I could!

Agreed in that scenario. And being a 450bhp v8, the engine will hardly be pushed to its limits on the UK roads so should still be a great runner after 10 years. Plus you'd have the enjoyment of driving a great sounding v8 engine for 10 years. Assuming you're ok with the fuel bills!

You don't see the bigger picture:

1) We live in a country with 70mph maximum speed limit
2) There is approximately 56 metres of road space per car
3) The cost of owning a vehicle is, basically, a financial black hole. Unless your employer or another third party subsidises it
4) Faced with the above, there's much MUCH better things to spend one's money on. I've owned a few speedy cars, but I got more thrill and memories from a holiday to Cornwall this year, and it cost less than depreciation.

Of course, a car is a necessity for many. But there's this extraordinary psychological mismatch between what they do in the real world, and what their owners think of them. I've learnt my lesson, and others are starting too also, especially after the last 10 years of badly engineered diesel 'technology'.

Buy used, Buy Jap, Buy petrol. And keep the money saved for things far more exciting than driving in this congested (but still beautiful) island.

I never said it would drive like an MX5. I said you didnt need a load of power to have FUN. My 1.6 MX5 reference was an example of not needing big BHP to enjoy a car.

No its not an MX5, and no, its not a Porsche Boxster either. Its not trying to be either. It has its own personality.

And so far we've had an '89 MX5 1.6, a 2002 1.8i Sport, a 2003 MX5 mk2.5 1.8i, a mk2 MR2 t bar, a mk3 MR2, an MG 1.8TF, a 3.0Si Coupe z4 M Sport mk1, and current a Z4 mk2 SDrive20i M Sport, right through to various coupes - Celicas, 320Ci, 325Ci, 3 330Cis, various hot hatches, through to some reasonably heavy duty kit including a Prodrive modded Subaru Impreza WRX-S hatch, and topping out on the BHP stakes with a 330BHP modded 535d M Sport, and a 350BHP modded 535d M Sport.

So, no i'm not an "idiot". And no its not all about the power, its about enjoying the car.

This car is about the roof down on a summers evening, or chucking a bag in the boot, hopping in and heading away to a country hotel for the weekend, or maybe taking in a coastal road on a Saturday. And yet its refined enough to be driven every day (as my wife does with her SDrive20i M Sport variant)

At £21K its an "option" - something to have a look at if you're in the market AND a lot cheaper now than its german peers - the TT and the SLK.

Because some can afford it

"What a dull life you must be leading. Still, you can always look at HUKD threads for expensive products and make inane comments."

Any one with £32,000 spare would not buy that. The buyer is more likely to be some one who cannot really afford it and buys on tick under the misdirection that is a penile extension or going through a mid life crisis!

What was your experience like?I've seen quite a few deals from them posted here recently but a quick Google seems concerning. Customer reviews include reports of overcharging, disagreements, delays and litigation. Extremely off putting, especially given the sums of money involved here.


Have used Broadspeed in the past and they have been absolutely fine.

The issue some folk seem to have is they quote a fee of £199 - which is a finders fee type thing - They also get a commission which is much higher - but this is all included in the savings you get - they could be a bit more transparent to be honest as most people are only really interested in the total price to change - Just read the "small print".

They put you in touch with a main dealer and away you go :).

As for getting a main dealer to match - The Aberdeen one would just laugh at you - they have 2 year old cars on the forecourt as per my earlier post for £600 less that a brand new one from Here

I would show this deal to a main bmw dealer and ask them to beat it. When i got my last car i found that you can haggle between different dealers in the same group aswell..

This exactly what Broadspeed and Drive the Deal do, they put you in touch with a UK supplying dealer and you deal direct with them. Essentially they've just negotiated the discount or you.

Please send me a link to this 2014 Z4 with 2000 mikes on the clock for £16k. I'll buy it today as it would be a cracking buy!!!!

Morons complaining about BMW drivers..Ha!
So what people are saying is when you go from one car brand to another you change you driving bad habits to match the brand stereotype? Odd, I wonder if the knows in their battered citreons and pugeots etc stop being jealous stereotypical asses when they get a nice car.

The z4 isn't a women's or hairdresser's car, it's just a nice all rounder.
Very few cars should be classed as a man's or women's car,pathetic the stigma attached to gender and cars

This model is more refined than it's predecessor, more sporty GT competing with the Slk market share as opposed to the boxster. Still a decent enough drive but not enough to out box a boxster. Heat from me.




Well said. The 2nd gen z4 is nearly 400kg heavier than the gen 1. Folding hardtop, much better interior and more spacious.

there are some really stupid comments on here. If you don't know what is being posted, please don't comment. This is an excellent price for a little car that is in very high demand. 1 year old cars are similar prices to this.
And as for the comment about buying a 2012 car, that would be hard seeing the ST was only introduced in 2013.

Because we're all sick of waiting at junctions for them, only to find them turn without indicating. Nearly getting run down on zebra crossings because they seem to think they shouldn't have to stop. Sitting 3 inches off your bumper because speed limits aren't high enough for them and their incompatibility with hands free kits.Then we have to listen to this endless waffle about quality and reliability, I know they look nice and I know it's difficult for BMW drivers to notice anything around them, pedestrians, road signs, other vehicles etc. If you do look away from your phones for a few minutes and observe the hard shoulder, you'll notice what the rest of us did years ago.


That has nothing to do with BMW. It is the reckless drivers some of which also drive Vauhalls, fords, audis, merc etc. You need to get a life.

ahhh you must be right because 100% of the BMW drivers you experienced driving like "BMW drivers" do indeed represent all the BMW drivers in UK. Thanks for that.

Its a mobility car so the reliability isn't a massive issue.



So your opinion is based solely off the experience of a few standard French cars in 15 years? You can't compare them these cars and haven't once commented on the cars themselves only the experience of the dealers you bought the car from or used for servicing and repairs. These are very different things.

I have owned the following French cars:

- 2000/W Renault Megane Coupe
- 2003/52 Renault Clio 172 Cup
- 2002/52 Renault Clio 172
- 2010/60 Renault Clio 200

Other than a fault window motor in the megane and an electrical issue stopping the lights working correctly in the 172, I haven't had any problems whatsoever.

No, I buy the car for it's performance rather than how reliable it will be in 3 years when I'll no longer own the car any more.

Have any of you actually owned a renault sport car?! i have had a megane rs and twingo rs both were jaw dropping in the performance and handling department, i also never had a single issue with them except for the mpg in the r26!! but then they are performance cars so you cannot compare them to the standard cars - get it straght people for gods sake!!!l.

Then if you have owned Renaults over a 15 year period they can't all be bad to stop you going back for more

No, my comments never mentioned the wheels. I mentioned the suspension set-up as the handling is one of the main selling points of this car. May I point your attention to this youtube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ae4RqTW5UDU

Wrong again. For your information, my car hasn't been back to the dealers once in 6 months. It's been perfect without a single issue.
