Hi all,

 

I've been perusing what I can of your forum for a while now, but didn't feel I could join up until I had a Renault. It seems to be one of the friendliest and least pretentious car forums I've been on.

 

I went for a drive in a cup sport 225 early last year (several times) but it was a lttle too much money and not yet the right time to buy. Somehow the reasons for looking at the cup sport (4 doors, hatchback, put the baby in the back, the wife can drive it.... ) morphed very quickly when I saw a couple of 225 F1 's for sale ... repeated discussions with the wife about how practical it would be ( I was the one with concerns - she said go for it) and last week I flew to Adelaide and bought one.

 

Whilst the photos were good, you can't quite capture how fantastic these cars look in the metal. I love it, and I'm still grinning....... :D

 

So thanks, and I look forward to future discussions - and reading more of the forum as a member.

 

regards

Congratulations and well done for not limiting yourself to a four/five door or much larger vehicle like a wagon or 4WD just coz you've got one child.

 

My wife and I managed just fine with one baby seat in our 3 door Holden Astra SRi but when the second daughter came along 19 months later, we had to upgrade to a five door hatchback. Two child seats fit just fine in the back of either of our RS Megane Cup or Golf GTI. Obviously there's no more room for another passenger older than 10 but that's not a problem for us.

 

I bet you go for a drive in the Megane then arrive at your destination and just want to get back in and drive it some more!

Thanks for the responses everyone,

 

especially Benst - you would not believe the number of family and friends who've had words with me about buying another two door car - I mean like it's unusual - I've been driving a coupe pretty much since 1987!

 

Yes, Dom, that's the car - I drove all the way to Melbourne the next day, where it is waiting to get on the boat - 800 - odd Kms and yes - I wanted to get back in and drive some more!!

 

It is just the perfect car for driving the roads down here... but I have to wait a couple of weeks now.

 

regards

I'm jealous. My commute involves 90% freeway and regular suburban roads and I rack up around 500kms/week. I wish I could swing some job in the opposite direction, somewhere in the vicinity of Warburton. Then I'd get to have a lot more fun commuting.

 

c'est la vie
