The only Avantime in Ireland.

It was a chance meeting with one. I stopped off on my travels back from the south-east yesterday at a Renault garage (after-hours) to see if there were any Vel Satis available.

Of course there wasn't!

I couldn't tell what engine it was, but, knowing Ireland, it would typically be a low sized petrol.

I have to say it is a bizarre piece of metal, but the interior is absolutely beautiful. The instrument panel not being in front of the driver is unusual. I really liked the way that the ventilation controls all seemed to be bunched over on the driver's RHS, in a small cluster. Very neat.

ANother thing I seen that I had not seen before was this:
