Bad Points
Have to wait 6-8 Weeks for it!

General Comments
Just about to order a Renault Clio 182 Sport 2.0 16V after having a test drive. It is an impresive car for the money and Renault are doing doing an Interest free credit option this month. It costs £14,900.

Im currently looking to get a clio 182 and dealers in this area are offering serious discouts. They are more than happy to deals, its just a case of doing the leg work and visiting as many as possible. My best price so far is 11,800 with cup spoiler, suspension and met paint.

I hate to be the one that backs up cliobell here. But today I went looking for the best deal on my Clio 182. I have already been to about 15 different garages in the last fortnight, some of which were different branches of the same company and so on.
<br>
<br>I live in scotland so I had went to a few garages in my area, Like Parks of Hamilton, Reg Vardy, Shields & even Motorpoint.
<br>
<br>Every single one of them said we have to sell at the book price of £14,700 as the car is not long out, they are hard to come by and they wont drop the prices to sell them on easier as there is quite a demand for them. Motorpoint offered me a £12,500 price tag which was very good but the interest was extremely high when it came to finance and they also gave me a shockingly low trade in on my current Clio.
<br>
<br>Then today I decided to travel 12 miles to the nearest Arnold Clark Renault Garage. All I had to say was "I am looking to buy a Clio 182", The salesman sat me down, went through the back for a minute then came out and sayed he could have one for me in a choice of Black Gold, Arctic Blue or Titanium for £11,748 including free metallic paint and free cup spoiler pack (being worth £475 in total). I was utterly gobsmacked and after putting off Arnold Clark for so long because I had experienced bad problems with them in the past, I had there and then forgave them for every single sin the had ever commited.
<br>
<br>After the trade in of my current 1.2 Dynamique Clio with a little outstanding finance and adding the price of the cup suspension pack, The price came to £12,654 which beat the next best 'price of change' by a whoping £3,500.
<br>
<br>This is the 1st time I got to read cliobell's comment, which ironically was after I had gone and did the same thing and when I read it I was amazed to see someone just as lucky as myself to get a brand new Clio 182 for a pricetag u would expect on an ex-demo, pre-registered or imported version. What a result! And all the better is that I have bought all my sound system for my current clio already, so the saving goes in my pocket or more probably towards reducing my monthly payement, As I aint rich enough to buy one outright :-(
<br>
<br>I will be writing a review as soon as I get my car and feel I know enough to write a review on it. Until then I can just sit and wait patiently for my little beast to arrive :-D
