    Just had delivered a new RS 280 Cup on a cheap lease deal, got it in flame red which i think suits the curves and is a bit nicer than the usual black / grey etc. Sadly the lease didnt have option of volcanic orange or liquid yellow, but im more than happy with this, especially at £250 down/month. Havent driven it yet but looking forward to going out and stretching it’s legs later! Iv always had a thing for hot renaults, so im sure it will be great :shades:

    I have had my eyes all over these they are fantastic cars, and at that price great deal, is that inc Vat and what's the millage term and spec? do they have rear steer as its meant to be great.

    Congrats and enjoy

    Im £251 and some pennies inc vat, 2 years, 6k pa (i use a van for work) so at only £6 grand - road tax included- for 2 years driving i thought was fantastic value.

    yep has 4 wheel steering, i tried to have a look at the back wheels when turning on the spot and putting it in my drive, didnt see much movement but i have no idea how the system works, maybe it only works at speed or whatever. I am genuinely excited to get it out and find out though.

    they seem to review very well and im pretty confident it will live up to it :shades: and im even happier to have the (poverty spec) 18s with nice fat continental tyres, should ride pretty nice over these crappy roads!

    That's great value at that , 6kmiles ok for second car as well if not daily, was it much more on 8k miles, yes have to agree cheap motoring at that, how did you find the service with the lease company and delays?
    I would love the wife to get one of these to replace her JCW but I cant see that happening as she still loves it 4.5 years in. the rear steer seems the amoun it turns is minute when I read about it but does make a big difference I believe.
    I always love the biggest wheels, but agree down in Glasgow and Edinburgh of late on my travels roads are simply shocking and a bigger tyre may save on wheel repairs etc and tyre damage

    Im not sure on 8k miles, but i think its about 8p a mile for me, if i was to do 2k more per year then it would be £300ish, which is what another 12 - 13 quid a month? Id guess be about that. The lease company were great to deal with, i ordered it on their website on 30th december, delivered today, all communication done via email, infact i dont think i had to speak to a person even once until today! These were stock vehicles though(from gateway2lease), im not sure how other companies might be, and factory order process etc.

    Loving this so far, very lively chassis, had a few oversteer moments through some slippy roundabouts which were rather fun. I really like the interior (for a cheap french car), the engine sounds shite from inside, though it does have a nice exhaust note from outside the car. The sound system is pretty pants but it’ll do. But overall im rather pleased!
