Hello people,

I am planning on ordering a New Rs 280 cup when i get back from my Holidays but, I was wondering if any of you know how long it takes to get the car from the point of ordering it.

I'll be away for a few weeks and i'm considering ordering it and then getting it when i come back. But if it arrives quickly, i'll just wait until i'm home again.

Cheers

'Quickly' is not in the Renault vocabulary.

A number of dealers do seem to have cars in stock but you will need to accept the spec/colour as is.

If you place an order for a new car you will be quoted the standard 3-4 months to delivery.
Experience tells me that 4 is most likely and will to some extent depend on how many are alredy in the queue following the August shutdown and the origin release debacle that saw a number of orders placed on a waiting list.

All depends on what specification & options you choose.
If there is one available that meets your requirements at the dealership or at the import centre stock, it could be only a couple of weeks, but if you requested a specific option or colour that is not available, there will be some form of waiting involved which the dealership will know more once the order has been placed with Renault/ factory.

Thanks for the replys.

Remarkably there is only 1 dealer in N.ire that i can see and they don't have any models of the RS 280 and don't plan on getting any flip sake..

So, i'd be ordering one the way i want it so i'm guessing a few months going by what you say. Cheers.

Ordered mine 2 weeks ago. The dealer said they can't even put the order through until September, then looking at a mid December delivery. Should be worth the wait,though!!

Thought I'd update this.

So as planned i ordered my rs 280 in September 2018.

It's been delayed a few times, most recently i was told the delay is down to a back log at the homologation centre ( Car test centre to ensure it meets new emissions standards.

So I've been told mid-march 2019 delivery date.

Have you got a chassis/build number yet? I only ask, as I ordered mine in August & I've got a chassis number & a confirmed delivery date of 21st May!!

I ordered on 19th December and got something like 19 weeks or so, don't know if it's the delivery time or the build time tbh, will ask with the deale. I only know that the dealer said Renault allocated a chassis number.

If the dealer has had a confirmation they should be able to give you all the details. Mine sent me a screenshot of the details they received from Renault. It showed chassis number, build details, date it will arrive in UK, docks it will arrive at, date it will arrive at dealers etc.

No Rolo,

The only thing i got was a screenshot of Renault confirming my order.

The last response i got from my dealer was Jan 22nd 2019..

. "Just had an update from Renault and we are looking at a mid-march delivery to ourselves, this is still an estimated and may come forward or back slightly but I will keep in touch as and when I get an update from Renault."

Because Renault closed the order books in July & didn't re-open them until January there's a huge backlog of orders. Your order, like mine, was placed with the dealer early but not actually with Renault until January. I was originally told March, then the end of April until all the details came through with the confirmed date of 21st May. It'll be worth the wait, though!

Talked with the dealer today and the car will arrive at them in the first week of May. Asked him if Renault usually delivers earlier or later, and he said they usually arrive a bit faster then the delivery date.

And it's a Cup chassis, so it'd be similarly stiff and bouncy on back roads, also known as 'sporty/focused' or whatever nonsense term boy racer types use to describe suspension that doesn't properly do it's job.

The Sport chassis in manual on the other hand, sounds a very very interesting prospect for everyday usage, shame there are none of them available second hand

Have you driven the Cup Chasis?
Felt fine to me, more forgiving than my Cup-S and the Cup-S is not a set up that causes me many complaints day to day. The only time it bounces / skips is at 5mph in car parks.
Good that we have choices, so those that want softer can get it.

I’m going full sporty/focused Trophy to fulfil my boy racer persona.

Guess I'm also of the 'nonsense boy racer' type as cup chassis on my old 250 and 200 always felt at home on country roads to me. There was even a video showing how the standard cup chassis compared to the optional Ohlins on the 275 which whilst showing the improvements the Ohlins could bring more highlighted just how good the standard Cup Chassis was over bumps. If the 280 is softer than the MK3 I personally would go cup allday..

Nothing wrong with the Cup chassis on the 280.

Yes it's hard, but it's not bone shaking. Feels similar to how I remember my 250 Cup to be. Much better dampened than the Clio 220 Trophy.

I'd never compromise on this sort of car and go for the standard without the LSD, even as a daily driver.

Are you sure you are on the right forum ?

The Cup chassis on the 280 I drove seamed perfectly acceptable to me.

Maybe you are purchasing in the wrong sectorShocked

I 'get' those that want a softer feel but to describe Renaultsport cars as having 'suspension that doesn't properly do its job' is plain ridiculous.

Renaultsport may produce cars where the 'gearbox' is not the apex but they are amongst the best in the business when it comes down to chassis/suspension set ups and for the record I am certainly no 'Boy Racer' LOL
