Call into a renault dealer in stoke (holdcrofts) the other day to organise a test drive in a Cup. Spoke to the sales man, he seemed polite etc.
Asked him when they would be getting a cup in. Replied, we have a normal 172 in, they are much better equipped and a better all round car. I said to him, i am after i cup really mate. He answered, they are quite pricey really sir, for what they are, they havent got much in the way of extras, for that sort of price you would be better off with a 1.6 16v, and you would get cheaper insuarance and more mpg.
I tried to explain to him, that it wasnt about money, extras, mpg (i could buy 2 172s if i wanted, well maybe not, but you know what i mean) but i wanted a cup, cause they are the closest thing to a stripped out road/track car you can get, for sensible money and still use everyday.
Anyway he looked at me like i am mad, and said i could get in on sunday if you want, to which i said yes, and i will tell you the rest tomorrow when it happens !
Honestly, salesman, they sell CARS which is there business, and they dont know the slightest bit about them !
