Morning, been on the forum reading posts for a while, but first time posting, I have been speaking to my local dealer about ordering a rs280 edc, but have been told the order books are closed and they don't know if or when they will be able to order again, does anyone else have info on this?

Yeah I got told they had a flame red trophy available in 2 weeks time, but as car will be a daily car the ride will be just to hard, so want to order a 280 auto edc, but Renault official twitter have told me today that the order books open and can go order today.

I ordered my RS280 at the start of March and have just had a delivery date from the dealer of mid June, so it was about 15 weeks. Equally, I got the order in before the TopGear TV feature (that morning) so may have been lucky with the queue

It seems the order books were closed so hopefully that has brought the wait times down, I ordered mine yesterday, sport chassis, edc, in black, all I was told was orders are usually 3-4 months but I am expecting 16 weeks, so mid July, as long as I get it during summer to have a bit of fun with it, I'm happy.

Hey Guys,

I ordered my RS280 EDC on 22nd March. It is scheduled to arrive in early August (I live in Hungary).
And I was lucky to take this Trophy for a test drive as well :)

Hi,
I placed an order for an RS 280 (sport chassis, manual) a couple of weeks back. I don’t have a build date yet and my dealer tells me this is due to a delay on my colour selection - Volcanic Orange. I have no reason to doubt this as the dealership have been v good so far, and I was made aware of a likely delay from day one. I’ve been reading other posts over the last year or so, noting mention of delays due to colour choice before now. Anyone else being told similar at the moment though?

Ohh it looks good, I went for black due to the yellow and orange taking longer to arrive, but also, black is easier to wrap if I decide that a colour change is needed.

Also I have just seen the panoramic roof, when looking on the configurator and specing it, it turned the interior colour from black to a light colour material, is that the case?

I honestly didn't notice Gaz, I'll take a pic later of the roof after work and upload for you.

Ok Gaz,

I've linked pics of the interior roof with the sunroof and a video of it operating.

In my 250,it was just glass but this 280 one actually opens which is great.

Thanks, it was more the interior colour, I'm not a fan of lighter colour so glad I didn't go with the roof. How's everything with the car so far, have they told you a run in period
