Hi Guys,

Been reading a few different threads on here and there seems to be quite a bit of confusion/rumours flying around. Thought i would be good to straighten things out as i have with my own patently waiting customers.

Megane RS is not a cancelled project and has been delay due to NEDC/WLTP homologation.

The latest timing are as follows:-

Price Reveal & Offers 19 November 2018
Website & Configurator live 19 November 2018
Order Opening 3 December 2018
Deliveries Starting from February 2019

I think the vast amount of customers will want to wait for the march plate as have mine. Makes sense to me.

The FOC Cup Chassis Pack launch offer will be honoured for orders placed in May that are still
unmatched

The next batch of RS demonstrators will be built in March 2019 as to prioritise customer orders. So lets say May/June for these to land at dealers across the country. I can however see potential issues down the line with test drive availability. I would imagine some other dealer groups will be wanting to move there current demonstrators on through this period as to not take too much of a hit on the RV. Consequently making them less available for Test drive/viewing.

As a dealer i appreciate the frustration customers/potential customers have been going through with the delays, Its not been easy but i can wholeheartedly assure you is 100% worth the wait.

If anyone wants a conversation on any the above points or anything RS related feel free to give me a call.

Been a while? Two weeks?
I thought the dealer cancelled your order?
I thought you had traded your part-ex for a Bentley?
Or have they changed the price of your Bentley?

Agreed, thank you Tom
Question is though why are Renault UK now relying on 3rd parties to issues updates?
Presumably this where Tom got his info so not IMHO a very professional way of doing things.

This and their continued radio silence ives the impression that they are not willing to commit to the information and already casts doubt on just how firm are the dates given.
I for one will not be getting excited before 19th November.

Right guys, Renault released the prices early the other day by accident and now is gone, but the trophy will be at £30.925 starting price but not 100% guaranteed till 19th November.

Had a test drive booked about ago month.
Only to be told a day before the car had been sold.
I really want to get back into the Renaultsport but with all that’s happened and now the delay with demo cars.
I doubt I will getting another RS until the customer service improved dramatically.

So, here we are, nearly at the end of the working day, with no prices, offers or working Configurator as stated above.

Anyone else not shocked by this??

Saw a price for the Trophy of £30,280 today.
Not sure if it’s confirmed, but would possibly be tempted at that price.

Why is everyone so impatient, prices will be announced when the time is right or when certain things are in place that allows any price announced to remain constant for set period of time.
Anyway November/December is when price changes are normally announced for the following quarter.

There seems to be a real lack of patience in society today.
Combined with a desire to over exaggeratedly whine on t’intermet about everything and anything, it’s a crazy world we live in........

I look forward to the news whenever it lands and have full faith in Renault that the Trophy will be a great package.
Still potentially 6 months until delivery of my M2, I think a Trophy is the only new car that could sway me.

Well be prepared for delays, WLTP is affecting all manufacturers with homologation issues as we know,but this will also delay any prices release date until the all clear.

You are missing the point, it’s not impatience when Renault continually indicate when information is due out (take the OP in this as prime example) and then do not deliver on that. That is miscommunication and leads to frustration, not impatience.

If it wasn’t going to be ready (again) then a more realistic date should have been previously communicated.
