The maths doesn't seem to add up. What is the total over for years?
Rancid looking vehicle.
12 plus 48 means 12 is deposit.
£2k deposit as well, not mentioned in the title. Cold from me

Was this deal taken away from me because of the Debenhams pricing error?
So glad i checked this thread before leaving for debenhams. Strange description says 1:10 and even in picture the boxed car says 1:10 on it. But got email saying 1:24 renault etc
Also received 1:24 on Saturday. Sending them all back. Total waste of time and money. Now need to go to PO to drop off.
Also received 1:24. What a royal waste of time.
wish i'd checked back to this thread today before dashing off to a packed trafford center to collect my order :( , i still hadnt noticed their error until the lady handed me over one small box ;( ,
Thanks, got a 3 piece clutch kit for my Lexus is250 for £52 instead of £300 - £400 8)

How are you searching /finding /filtering for these? Great deals, always on a look out for cheap replacement parts I know amazon throws out loads of stuff mental cheap.
Eurocarparts seem to use their own product codes so not much use....most parts manufacturers have their own e catalogues online now,probably a better bet to get the correct parts.
I'm not an oap and my mileage is less than 6000 miles per year. I spend somewhere between £3k and £4k a year leasing. Not on a French junker though.
6k miles a year is probably what people tell the insurance company but in reality its probably about 10k
One would be better off, IMHO, leasing a Honda Jazz 1.3 i-VTEC EX 5dr for a net £155.88/mth for 24 months with 8k miles a year: superior car, cheaper deal and more miles.
All this arguing over a car,why not take the bus! :-)
But there is something very wrong with being rude on a thread that you pretend you dont care about. Also try and post a deal on this website before putting down someone else's post. This is a deals community. Not "who can insult/demean the most.com" is it?
Dealers can't do a lot of things but they do do it. No different to a punter taking out finance and then paying it off within a few weeks to obtain the cheaper deal. It's dishonest, because they're using finance regulations that are supposed to protect you to breach a contract. The manufacturer supports sales of cars with low cost finance and 'deposit contributions' that effectively discount the car. If someone cancels the finance deal after the benefit of the 'deposit contribution' the manufacturer loses what it would have made on the finance.
Which brings us to my initial point. Dealers cant offer 0% finance then discount for cash
You are missing the point. 0% finance will not be offered on the discount price. It will on the list price. Jeez!
What did Oscar Wilde say now...."If I had to explain you wouldn't understand" (:I
...and who buys at list price? JUST SAID YOURSELF SOME ARE KNOCKING 25% OFF lol jeeez!!
In that case I will expire it then. It was left unexpired so I thought the deal was still active!
This was posted on the 25th Oct..... i think they might have changed it..
Um where are you getting that price from???? I have voted this hot because of that price. Just went on as I would get one for this price. Was really excited as I have wanted to get a car and was waiting for one at a decent price. Clicked the link and it says £27,999
lol of course
wow some people forgot to take their meds this morning? no idea what a Koleos is, sounds like army slang for some form of VD but an amusing post nontheless.
Good job its not a Mclaren Honda deal
Formula Renault experience is a good price - you'll get about 10 mins driving time. Perfect for a F1 enthusiast who's never done this kind of thing before. Short lap, you're unlikely to exceed 80mph on that track and you'll probably stay in the same gear throughout. If you enjoyed that kind of experience, then go and do a Palmersport experience day. Pricey at £800ish per person but it really is the best driving experience I've ever been on. Done it for 3 times now - great day where you're actively pushed to the limit. Voted hot for this deal.
Yeah I know, couldn't be bothered to edit.
Fire engine I guess, as there's no F1 car there
Mmmm F1 or fire engine, decisions, decisions.
My last Renault had engine failure at 70,000k. I'd already had to replace dual mass flywheel, water pump, intercooler, dashboard, several window regulators, cam belt, all gear box and engine mounts, electrical problems galore caused by leaks and blockage below the windscreen. Nightmare car and money pit. Never again even as a lease
Black Friday for cars is the end of the financial year - they are desperate to meet their targets and you can get great deals if you play your cards right.
Yes, £7.5K to lease £5K worth of Megane for 4 years!
Imagine someone ordered of the mobile site and their look of horror when a four year old car turned up on the transporter.....
• Nationwide Delivery Available. • Cars are 2012/62 registration. • These cars have done between 29000-37000 miles. • Cars are fully prepared to BVRLA standards • Comes with outstanding manufacturer balance or complimentary 3 month fully comprehensive Hippo warranty • Other deposits (starting at zero) and lease length terms available (2,3,4 years) • Part Exchange Accepted.
This would be an awful lease even if it was new!
Look on autotrader.co.uk
I've never seen this deal for anywhere near £10,000 can you give a link
They must've been as bald as a nuns fanny.
85k miles only changed front tyre's once?
Its £12,102.75 minimum! And if the £199 fee is compulsory, then there BS headline fee should be amended.
This is a national style deal, that is purchase by dealers and used by marketing teams year in year out. You may get a good deal or it may just be hype. As ofheRs say try a dealer/broker so don't be tempted by below rrp, as most new cars can be got for below rrp
It sounds more likely that they have bought the vehicle for £x but will get £0.y as a "rebate" from the manufacturer when they shift the old stock.
Nah, the paper for the list of "optional" * extras would cost that alone. *(read "the bits even Datsun had as standard before they changed name 40 years ago")
Pre-registered no doubt, so savings of 20% plus from new would be expected, if not even more.
What they mean is "the single car invoice price is £X, but we're buying in bulk so we're actually getting them for £0.8X and selling them to you for £X". If you want a Dacia and the price you're getting them for is better than you'd otherwise get through a broker then why not?
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
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 went, it was a nice few hours out. Not a huge amount of track activity but well worth going and great weather too
Did anyone go? Hope it was a good day out.
Just turn up as its not a ticketed event. I shall pop along as its local for me
The only location mentioned in the article is "The action will run from 9am to 5pm with fans granted access to the international pit-straight grandstand." No sign of registration, but having gone to Silverstone last year there are multiple activities and buildings you can access most days both within and immediately around the circuit, so there weren't any entrance checks (wasn't a race day). While most of the seating grandstands will likely be closed, Silverstone has plenty of space around the circuit with good views for the cars going round so space really won't be a problem.
If i didnt already have a liquid yellow r26 id be all over this. The renault sports are built at a different factory in dieppe and tend to have better build quality. Brill car for shopping trips & trackdays..
i always thought it was a blue and white t shirt.
Ah right, so when you run out of 'facts' to back up an argument you turn to insults. That's about right. I've had a megane, not the rs but a megane all the same. Couldn't spend more than an hour a time in it without being in agony. So unless they've moved the physical position of the seat, the pedals and the wheel it would be a similar story in the rs. Standard wheels on the golf are awful, that's why I ordered it with the 19s and the dynamic chassis control. Everyone I know (and that's a real critical bunch) loves the car, the subtle styling and especially the wheels, the double U headlights and the super smoked tail lights. I can also reach the sat nav too without having to undo my seat belt X) If the golf is so boring and bland.. then why does it win every group test going for the last two years, with only the new focus rs giving it any hint of competition? I mean, who wouldn't want 275 horses just through the front wheels! Enjoy your plastic toy (_;)
Seriously, anyone saying a Megane RS250/260/275 is apalling has never owned one or even driven one. So that makes you a lying son of a bitch. No other car has won best hot hatch 5 years in a row. It looks great, drives great and is reliable. Enjoy your boring Golf R, could have been so good. Shame about the wheels, headlamps, tailights, styling, or lack of should I say. I use to be Mr Average, but then I realised I wanted the best handling hot hatch. I loved the look of the Astra VXR GTC, but knew it handled poorly and did not put the power down. Once I had driven a Megane, that's it I was sold. Just like the time I went to look at a Boxster. Don't do bland anymore, which is why my next car will probably be a Cayman S.
Yeah must be the calibrated Tesco Momentum pump at my local garage lying to me oO Beyond boring.. Have had a Megane, I know what they are like and how appalling they are. Guessing you have had both to comment...oh no, forgot, just a keyboard warrior quote magazine and tabloid articles instead of going out and driving one....Or just rely on actual real life figures: http://www.fuelly.com/car/volkswagen/golf/2015/daveflave/391741 I can only find one british Megane RS on Fuelly and unfortunately it is from 2011: http://www.fuelly.com/car/renault/megane/2011/redbox/168880
Reliability with renault much better these days. Longer warranty reflects this. With a lease I suppose you always have a car in warrinty too.
Lol wouldn't touch a Renault way unreliable
cold for the stupid name
This place cracks me up sometimes. It only takes a few to vote one way or another and the sheep just follow. I look at lease deals a lot and this is actually a good one, but it only takes a few to say, "eurgh, it's a Renault" without doing the research into what the proper motor journalists have said about this car and the die is cast. Main dealers will be over £300 per month for an equivalent deal. PCP would be around £300 per month for 4 years, but because this isn't a supercheap deal and it's not a Merc, Audi, BMW or VW, the great unwashed think it's actually a worse deal than it is. If I hadn't got the Alltrack deal I'd probably have been on this.
I voted hot & it went two degrees minus!
I can see it now on the main page metallic paint with a tick next to it. However if you go in to the optional extras the only colour with a no cost is the white. Will emai and update later when I get a reply
I haven't went for it but the info on their page says that metallic paint is included so I would think you could get the red at no extra cost.
Has anybody gone for this year? Looks like the only option without paying extra is Glacier white More inforamtion from the Renaultsport forum here http://www.renaultsport.co.uk/forum/default.aspx?g=posts&t=87476 Review http://www.topspeed.com/cars/renault/2015-renault-megane-renaultsport-275-cup-s-ar171091.html#main
Got to agree about the Clio, done a few track days in mine and past plenty of faster cars.:p Although mine is a 182 Trophy not a **** beaten up one 8)
Good car and a good deal, but a word of caution to anyone considering it.... do not forget that this is a lease, that means that you do not own it. That means that you cannot modify it and you also cannot take it on track days without significant risk. Usually these things do not matter on a lease, but with a car like this 90% end up modified and most end up doing a few track days so it becomes more relevant. Also, to all the people talking nonsense about whats fast / slow - as anyone who has ever done a few track days will tell you, the fastest car there is always the cheapest **** beaten up one, and its usually a Clio.
Could be worse could be a BMW or a VW or even worse a vauxhall as used by many a dope dealer and chav.
You could have replied to my comment with a simple 'Yes!', or even amplified it a little with 'Yes, I do really mean personal choice. However, you go on in great detail to lay out what I inferred, but did not write more about that which I thought would already be obvious to most, especially if they have read through all the above posts. However, you have completely missed out two factors which can have a great influence car buyers.One is the power of advertising, and the other is the impact of reviews and opinions in the motoring press. As for your last sentence, I fail to see its purpose as nobody has suggested otherwise. As for me, a car is a tool of convenience to me, not my pet. If I could afford it, a chauffeur-driven limousine would enable me to make better use of my time, and there are a lot that think like me. The point is that the OP has found what is a good deal for anyone interested in a Twingo or similar.So those who want a Twingo can save money with the deal, and the interest of others may switch to Twingo from some other similar. It is nothing to do with any other vehicle.So heat to the OP.
By personal purchase, I mean a bit of personal preference comes into the mix when you choose a car which may not be entirely practical or logical for your needs, or even if 2 cars look to be very similar in their price-point and capability you may be strongly drawn to one over the other. All cars get you from A to B (if they don't break down) - some will give you better performance, some will give you better fuel economy, some have more safety equipment, some will give you a very comfortable ride insulated from poor roads or outside noise etc. People rarely buy a car based purely on a lot of ticks of preferences on a wish list using nothing but their logic or reasoning. There is no one universal car that does everything that everyone wants it to do at a price accessible to all. Some people will buy a car they really like the look of/drive of against the logic of it being impractical for them (perhaps someone with a couple of kids buying a car with poor rear leg/headroom), some will buy a huge people carrier despite only having one kid. Paying more for a car (new for new comparison - no point comparing a brand new Dacia Duster with a 6 year old Audi A3 TDI at the same price) will almost certainly get you a car that is comparably better than the cheaper one in one or more ways - perhaps it has a significantly higher output, or more equipment, or better ride refinement. A £20k RRP car will stand up against a £10k RRP car to justify the extra expenditure otherwise no one would buy the dearer one. If everyone put all personal car choice considerations out of the window and looked at the car purely as an A to B tool, we'd all be in no frills/no thrills variants of the same car, differing only by the size/occupancy to suit the size of our family. You could get by using this Twingo for long motorway journeys, but you wouldn't want to unless finances dictated necessity, that was my point. City cars are generally thought of as the most basic of cars - yes you can buy an Audi S1 or a Mini Cooper S, but the city car/supermini segment is filled with the cheaper end of the car spectrum - low on size, low on ride comfort (multilink suspension and adaptive damping etc.), low on standard equipment levels and (with a few notable exceptions), low on performance. Those are the main reasons why so many city cars have a low RRP. Picking a car is not as simple as choosing Branston beans over Heinz to most people. Paying more than £8k for a car does not make you an idiot or a money waster, because the drive is as important as the arrival at destination for many people.
What do you mean by 'personal purchase? Surely, isn't everything you buy is a personal purchase? Are you sure you don't mean personal choice? Even that is not true, because for many of us, probably most of us, what car we buy is dictated by what we need to use it for. What is true for most of us is that a car is primarily bought for getting from A to B wherever A or B might be. It is obvious that this car is not designed for frequent long journeys or to carry a big load of luggage. It is designed as a city car, and being marketed as such, so comparison should be made with other city cars because to do otherwise is ridiculous. However, thinking that simply paying more for a car makes it better is also ridiculous.
The point is very simple. Renault don't make the speedo. They buy it from an instrument manufacturer, and have to buy what is available while seeking commonality of parts whenever they can because it allows economy of scale. Now, while it would be pointless in fitting a speedo that could reach the maximum speed of a car, does not matter if it it can go far beyond? You might just as well ask why a bathtub can hold up to 60 gallons of water with you in it, when you only ever put around 30 gallons in it.
I did. They said don't buy cheap used French cars again.
Woah!! You are seriously saying that an old, well used, cheap car had some faults? I'd write to Watchdog if I were you.
Sounds like you bought someone else`s rubbish, remember the car is nearly 12 years old. With a new car you will be okay because of the warranty
All great, good for you. The important information is missing, did they give you your money back?
I use the word track days loosely, we were talking about the Palmer sport experiences at the time if you had read the conversation, where you can drive a single seater and other fast lightweights. That is the type of instructor based experience you're talking about.
Really!? When I did it some idiot left a ramp out on the track. I hit it and everyone said 'he's dead'. I flipped over in the air and everyone said 'he's definitely dead'. Landed on 4 wheels, pulled over and I said I don't know what you were worried about.
Not sure about that - for "more serious trackdays" you're unlikely to be in a single seater - in fact they're banned on almost all trackdays. Single seaters are quite unlike "normal" cars, and the track here will be quite unlike any proper racing track - so it's not really very good preparation. Something like the Elise Experience at Thruxton would be much better "training" - and you get an instructor with you to help you learn. More expensive though. I did that to learn Thruxton before racing there (almost no test or trackdays at Thruxton). Actually the best part of the day was the extra laps I bought in - yes - a Formula Renault. Scary things - massive vibration from engine and suspension, difficult-to-master right hand gearshift and very fast. Wouldn't really fancy one on a coned-off airfield.
He said the same to me too and rather than believing him I took it as.... 'you're burning up more petrol than you've paid us....so get out of the bloody car!'
I'll have your house charger if you don't need it? Getting a leaf and need to pay towards it, with the Renault you get if free
What's the cheapest deal going on one of these? 2 year PCP, 8k miles?
the charger is via a government grant. You can ask for it not to be installed but I doubt you'll save any money from the dealer
I'm looking for a deal like this but one that doesn't include the house charger, as I already have one.
Good deal :-) waiting for our Zoe to be delivered. They do other mileage deals, we've gone for 7500 miles over 3 years (different dealer). This will be the latest model with the R240 motor. 100+ miles very possible especially on slower roads.
