Hi guys,

Today is a big day for me, since I visited a Renault dealer about 44km away from my hometown and signed an order and paid deposit for Twingo RS + Cup chassis in capiscum red. Estimated delivery is on the end of July, but hopefully, it'll be far sooner :) Can't wait, really :D

If anyone would be interested, I could post some details about price and discounts I managed with that particular dealer, since I had been in contact with two dealers trying to get the best discount possible... :cool:

EDIT: U just received a call from my dealer, that he managed to get "my" Twingo into May's production, so it should be at home in the middle of the June. Hurraaaay :p :p :p

Allright, here we go: Offical start up price for Twingo RS in Slovakia is 13.490,- €. I've added only Cup chassis, which is 550,- €, so the full price should be 14.040,- €. After few personal visits and communication via email, I ended up with 11% off from the price (12.490,- €), 10% discount on servicing, 5% discount on spare parts and accesories and I got DefendLock for free (manual blockage of gearshift). Im quite happy with that, since at first the max I would get was 7% off...

yeah, my original date of delivery was end of July as well... But dealer managed to put it into May production and the estimated delivery changed to end of June. So its arrived more than 10 days earlier than it should, I am very happy about that :) I wish you painless waiting, I know the feeling :roll:

I was waiting for mine from late march (20ish or smth) to 6 june (at first it was expected at the end of july too), got to the dealer on 2nd june for documents required for registration, and had to wait 4 days before I was able to sit in it. It was 4 veeeeeeeeeeeeery long days....now it has about 250miles, 550 to go, it's so revvy and I can't take it to 7k RPM... running in is _torture_...
But handling is great, so agile - I have standard, not cup version, I can imagine how well that one handles* - and handling doesn't need that much running in ;P.
And brakes... almost teared my face off ;]
I wish I had more time to run it in quicker.

*our roads sucks, having cup would be a torture too...for my back ;]
