i spoke to my dealer the other day, they didnt even know that reno were bringing out an F1 model!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the salesman that i deal with told me that i shoud be sitting in his seat as i knew more about there cars than they do :lol: :lol:
G
this is the same with me when i was buying my meggy, the guy didn,t have a clue about reanaultsports.

how much do these guys get a year
:lol:

I shudder to think some times
My local dealer knew all about the F1........from this site! Its seems odd to me but they dont seem to get any press releases or anything for the RS range. The dealers round here hardly ever even have them in stock, its the same with the clios, they knew the new RS is coming in May and that it has 200bhp but no other details and thats probably going to be renaults biggest new car release for 10 years.

I do find though that the sales people tend to fill in the large gaps in their knowledge with a healthy dose off good old bullshit :)
funnt you should say that jon, the guy i got mine from at rens who is a nice guy to be fair, he comes on here now and again while at work and has a look through to see wats going on, tells his manager then looks all clever :lol:
very true

I had the same feeling. As I was waiting for my car to be delivered I felt that the dealer didn't know a lot about the car. Things like standard equipment and extras, so I only really knew what I was going to get after I got it.

About new models they are light year aways. I think it was only due to luck that I got the real deal (steel gray, cup pack, 18" alloys, cabasse stereo)

Those guys really need to subscribe to this forum.

Slightly off topic but I had the local Ford dealer ring today chasing an enquiry I made about the Focus ST (about 2 months ago!).

Told him I was no longer interested as I had bought a Megane 225.
His reply was that it sounded nice but he wasn't familiar with that model!

So a major competitor to their new ST and they know nothing about it?! :roll:

Conversely, my local Renault dealer seems to be pretty good on the Renaultsport side and usually have at least one model (usually a Clio 182) on the front.
i quite like having a car that no bugger knows nothing about, in fact iv had 2 now :lol: and people think i sprayed the blue one and put new wheels on :lol: ,

feels good knowing you could prob drive 200 miles and not see another one on the road.

Have you not sprayed it then :?: :?: :shock: :roll:
It is nice driving a rare car but doesn't it annoy anyone that people don't take it seriously???

I used to find the same with my 172 and got comments like 'its only a Clio'!!

Seems to be that petrol heads know more about cars than people who work in the trade. :lol: :lol:
It can be annoying, but its funny seeing their faces once you've left them standing :) :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
Sod peoples thoughts of its only a megane!!!

Let the tarmac do the talking... :)
Let the back end of the car, when you've shot passed em :lol: :lol: :lol:
