Renault Megane 3 - Options List Confusion

Hi guys.

I am new to this forum as I am about to become a Megane owner by ordering a brand new Megane Coupe 1.6 Dynamique.

I am having a bit of a minefield with the options list though and as I am buying over the internet I have discovered one of the pitfalls which is that they don't really know about the Cars.

One query I have is regards to the fixed sunroof. The name suggests that it doesn't open and I did read somewhere that it didn't but the brochure says it opens at the front. Secondly the upgraded stereo on the Dynamique mentions Arkamys in places but not others and I am assuming that this is the new 3D sound system?

If your expert knowledge could help me here I would be grateful as Google has let me down for once.

Hello and welcome Benji

Brave man, ordering online. Can't you get a better deal, some freebie extra's and the answers to your questions from a dealership

Thanks for the reply. I don't mind buying online, I have done so before, but normally I understand the options perfectly. The dealer can't or doesn't want to get near the price I have been offered and didn't seem to know the answers to more basic questions when I test drove the Car.

I think I may try Renault UK in the morning and see if they can tell me the answer.

I would be reluctant to buy a new car online. I would like to see if my suited the drivers seat first. Plus Renault trim levels can vary quite widely.

Hi there.

What I would suggest doing is visiting the dealership & getting a written quote for the model & spec you want.

Then Fax this (covering the price of course) to the broker making it absolutely conditional that the car you order matches this spec - if they supply & it isn't correct - you walk away of negotiate the price downards.

Hope that helps,


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
