Renault Megane Coupe - bhoy wonder
Have had a price of £14,500 for a new Megane coupe Dynamique that has been imported from Cyprus. Is this value for money?
Is there anything that I should be aware of, any pit falls on this deal?
I have been told by the salesman that it has a full 3-year British warranty - is this true? - I haven't had this in writing.
Thanks

Is that from a main Renault dealer? If so thats expensive as its an import where there may be differences in spec or combatability with parts. I was quoted £12500 for an import from a broker.A friend is unable to trade his imported Focus in to a main dealer, and is now stuck with it! Scary if you pay £14500 for your Renault,nice though they are!

What wd induce anyone to buy this commonplace-looking roof-folder when they could buy a good-looking and lighter weight two or four-door Megane for less?

Because the good-looking and lighter weight two or four-door Megane does not have a folding roof!

I saw my first example of this Renault (champagne type colour) a few months ago driving around the local Tesco car park.

Couldn't work out what it was until a closer examination revealed all.

I thought it was - and still do - a cracking looking vehicle from virtually any angle.

Perhaps the only Renault I'd consider buying and it would be purely on looks...:-)

You can get the diesel engine version of this car on a one year lease for about £160 per month + VAT. I know what I would do!

I agree it's quite nice looking, Stuartli, but that rounded screen pillar and the huge, bustle-like boot lid made necessary by the need to hide the whole roof under it are to be seen in a number of other, similar cars. The body will be more jelly-like than a saloon body and the mechanism despite the design miracles embodied in it will be heavy and bulky. Sorry, but to me these cars even in a more expensive class (Mercedes) seem to me jumped up and a bit hairdresserish. Of course I don't mean to offend.

None taken. If we all thought the same life would be very boring...:-)

But there are a lot of these coupes around our area now, so clearly they have struck a chord with a lot of people.

But there's a long way to go before they catch up with the number of Picassos......:-)

Actually on the subject of disappearing-hardtop cars, Ford I think in the late 50s produced one in which the roof didn't fold at all but simply lifted into the enormously long but otherwise conventionally shaped (not overclosing like a suitcase as with these modern Euro versions) boot. I'm afraid I'm carp at finding pix and posting weblinks, but someone more expert may be able to do it.

Just a gizmo. But we love gizmos don't we, really?

Is this the one?

Does this description of 1949-51 Fords remind you of any particular present day marques...:-))

The very thing Stuartli. I see I had remembered incorrectly though, because the roof does fold.

Those 1949-50 Ford Fordor and Tudor cars were I thought at the time good looking, and I had the privilege of driving on Yelverton aerodrome - a disused wartime one - outside Plymouth my Irish uncle's borrowed example, Dublin in those days having many American cars. I was 14 I think, and let the clutch in roughly causing wheelspin from rest. Wasn't allowed to go over about 30, or far though. It must have been a 1950 example because my late aunt and uncle had just returned from a long continental trip in it, without trouble.

I think a Cyprus import will suffer greater depreciation in the short term

You need to make sure you're getting the facelift model. HJ roadtest on front page.

Decided not to buy car. To many unanswered questions from the dealer.

Cyprus registered cars suffer collosal depreciation what you may gain now you will lose times over upon resale.
