I'm glad you are the Guinea Pig for us, as no one I know has yet seen the UK Launch Edition
In the App there's no mention of Self Parking, but front and rear parking assist ( sensors I guess) are. Reversing camera? It does mention lane keeping.Would be really good to see a few pics and a rundown of what actually is included.
If I have to get the dealer on the phone maybe he can prove the rear view mirror cam thing is there and the dash top and the wooden bits, now it seems we'll have to park it ourselves, god forbid I have to start keeping in lane myself too... 🤥
A launch edition in the wild (or facebook) apparently had for a few days.
Looks nice in black. View attachment 169951
Well that's my car, the Grey door mirrors and roof don't seem to stand out in that picture/angle though.
Yeah, not really the best week of this year to pick up a new car.Well done.
Post some pics both inside and out.
Mine was supposedly going to be here on the 9th but now I'm told tomorrow.
Dealer will probably faff about and delay things until the weather is worse though.
I never asked about the green stripe. On the Audi it came with the DVLA plates (green stripe) however, they made up plates for us and when I took them out to be fitted they were standard plates.Crikey!
Not heard from my dealer yet.
I'm wondering how long the retention doc might take to come through.
Might as well get them to fit the plate and register it rather than faffing about myself.
Are you going to have the green stripe or not?
If I'm hearing/reading things correctly, our cars are sitting at the port waiting for certain components to be added/retrofitted. Odd, but given certain supply chains issues, maybe not a daft as it sounds. Maybe, with components shipped in from elsewhere or the UK.My last update was it being on a boat a fortnight ago. Heard nothing since and hoping it's at least landed by now...
Have you been drinking.Update just came in from Renault.
I guess that even though they were on the same boat the prep they do and transporters they lob them on are done in strict order of first come, first served.
So the race is on for who xan pick it up the quickest and pist some pictures.
What was your scheduled delivery date?Latest from Renault customer is my car has been released for delivery and they are aiming to get it to dealer by end of next week where then dealer do there's checks before arrangements for me to collect so looks like the week after Christmas 😩
I was offered the Service Plan, a figure was quoted and I challenged it, I had been quoted for an ICE vehicle, they came back to me and it was less than £5 a month. I took it. Also opted for wheel and tyre insurance, I've never done this before, but my wife will be driving this a lot and she has a wheel curbing history. 20" tyres don't come cheap do they.Renault UK just phoned me. Car now expected to be at dealers on 23 December instead of 20 December. He said he was 'confident' of that date. The delare needs to do an autoglym so no way I will get it before Christmas. Fortunately my old wreck got through its MoT without having to spend too much (a miracle) so iot doesn't really matter to me. And as someone else said, weather not great for the forseeable anyway.
Incidentally, although my dealer said maintenance plan was a single up front payment, Renault guy seemed to think that a new alternative, a paid-monthly plan, was now available. No idea if that is right or not!
