Just heard today my delivery of my Trophy has been delayed due to my paint option of Orange, and problems at the factory with this color option. Defect in the paint.

Has anyone else heard about this delay?

Finally picked up my Volcanic Orange RS280 on Monday, nearly 9 months to the day since I ordered it. There's no defect with the paint, they have simply run out of Volcanic Orange & Liquid Yellow! Those 2 colours take longer anyway because they have a 2 part paint process. My dealer told me if I ordered a Volcanic Orange car today they couldn't give me an estimated delivery date.

It’s great to drive, but there are a few things that annoy me about the car.

What annoys you? Had my RS280 5 days now, set up as I want it. Can honestly say nothing annoys me. Other people on this forum complain about erratic keyless entry; mine works perfectly!

Hi DanF, I see yours arrived at the dealer today, mine was due to be delivered to the dealer last Friday the 17th but has been at the import centre in Southampton for the last week. It came up as technical block last week and my dealer advised me that all Megane rs are on technical block. Just wondered if you had the same problem.

I tried hard as I was not happy, but he was not forthcoming. It was worth the wait though.

All special colors (white pearl, red rouge flamme etc.) are 3 stage so Orange Tonic and Liquid Yellow aren't special in this case.

I don't think there is any issue with the paint, but with Renault the delivery system, which sucks big time. My car exit the factory door on 20 March, yet its stil not delivered. We are talking about MONTHS from the moment the car is made and till it arrives in the country of destination, which is beyond idiotic. I can understand a delay of 1-2-3-4 weeks, sure, but this is retarded.

My car was due to be delivered to the dealer on the 17th May, two days before on the 15th May it was put on technical block at the import centre in Southampton along with all the other Megane RS’s. Last Friday the 24th it had come off technical block but since then the delivery date is showing as TBA
