I would maybe hold on and see what Honda have to offer with the Type R

Gets good reviews the 280. I bet it is a very good car, it all depend on your requirements? If it is only you and a passenger and you do relatively low mileage and most of it is spirited, then the Megane is the best option. Any deviation from this and others may be better all rounders IMO.

The Leon is a supposedly good car

However, it looks incredibly boring..

Yeah, I have thought that as well but unfortunately I don't think the timescales will fit as my current deal ends in December, so kind of need to act before then.

That' one of the things that is making me um and ah about it; it just doesn't look that much different from the standard FR version (especially from the front).

Haha going full circle at this rate!!

In terms of staying in a hot hatch....

My guess moving from a 250 Cup to a 275 Trophy would probably be a little underwhelming.

The GolfR/Leon280/S3 all look the same and dreary, but the R probably makes the most financial sense given the deals.

I'd say wait for the Type R or Focus RS. If the timings aren't right you could just save a bit of cash and run a bluemotion Golf etc in the interim, could allow you to tick a few more options.

Given whats happened with the last Focus RS it's probably gonna be the best bet.

Evo thought the 275 was epic and a noticeable improvement over the 265, arrange a test drive when they are out, Jeremy said they should be around in Oct.

Kinda see the 'chav' element but it's got such proven residuals.

Chances are they'll be far more 'chavs' in 250s in the not too distant..

In a tasteful colour the v6 looks awesome, in any colour IMO the RS looks like it should be doing donuts in a McDonalds car park.

Yea I guess big air scoops etc will rub some people up the wrong way. Put simply the V6/RS etc stand out. If that means chav I dunno, given the money involved it doesn't for me

You're right, once the price of them drops to a certain point, it will be bought by people who mod them garishly and can't afford to maintain them properly.

So TeaJay, or anyone else for that matter. What did your local Renault dealer say/quote finance wise for the new 275T? We dont even have a local Renault in Nottingham to ask but I would be interested to know.
