The Moment You Have Been Waiting For - Renault Clio

Postby Bartlett88 » Sun Apr 08, 2012 10:23 pm

For the money it looks good. My little clio was pretty nippy, wouldnt say it was much slower then my TDI.

Btw whats it looking like A3 or A1? A3 will be god dame exensive compare to A1 at the moment though.

Im leaning towards the A3 ... Based on what has gone on with my current A1. The whole experience has been quite poor to be honest with you. I have found a good deal on the new A3 which Is why I am leaning towards that.

Pro:
- New Model
- Arguably better residuals
- Lots of Gadgets
- Offered a Brilliant Deal

Negatives
- More expensive car

Audi ...... Dealer offered me an A1 on a short term PCP (Sign a 4 year contract for a basic A1, no extra's) but only keep the car for 6 months and trade it in. Pay £300 pm and they would offer me a fixed rate upon return of the vehicle, in return for doing this they would discount the A3 by £500.

So by purchasing this car its a much better option financially. Paid hardly anything for the Clio and In theory I should make money on the car given what I paid and what it is worth. So I could come out with + Equity when I trade it in. I know September is a while off but it would have been stupid of me to pay £300 p.m. and then get nothing in exchange

September is sooner then you think mate, look how fast this years gone already. If I could afford it Id probably do the same, the residuals on the A1 have been beaten silly mainly due to these mammoth discounts lately. I'm not a huge fan of the A3 because it looks to similar to previous models externally. Its a good toss up but if you like the looks then youve made the right choice.

Remember... £19,700 for a A3 1.4 TFSI 122PS SE, comes with standard cloth seats, 16" alloys, solid paint.

Lets add S-Line spec: £2000
Ibis now discontinued Amalfi free or Glacier: £600
Privacy: £350
Xenon Plus: £600
Climate: £300

Rough estimate price: £24,000
-7% discount = £22,320

Thats ok i suppose, although i would still go for a A1 2.0 TDI BE for £18,600


Good luck mate!

Moj,
Where do you get the £19,700 figure ?

In any case ... I wouldn't go for the SE so I would take a Sport if the S-Line was out of my price range.

Is IBIS definitely discontinued ?

Climate Control is standard on the Sport ? Or it was on the current A3

Privacy, Xenons, PDC - Yep those options would be fine

I wouldn't mind a A1 BE however its just off-putting what has already gone on and a little annoyed that I would end up paying more for the A1 this time around if I wanted a like for like A1.

Audi briefly put up the starting price and then removed it! £19,700 if i remember rightly for the bottom of the range entry model.

I guess they will stop Ibis and offer Amalfi, to entice people to pay extra for Glacier!

Wally ... Has age affected your eye sight. Adding a few grand onto the bottom line price.

See price wise it shouldn't be too bad
