Re: Vel Satis 3.5 Initiale Newbie

Exactly that model Oliver, with the chrome detailing (in line with the rest of the Renault range).

I have seen both of those other shots before. The black one lives in Paris and is an acquired taste IMO, the silver one I think looks stunning from the rear (remember its the new shape model so the rear apron/exhaust would not work on the 'old' uk spec unless you replace the complete cat-back exhaust system which I am wanting to do...) the front looks quite good too but I wonder if it just looks a tad too 'heavy'? The side profile looks rather cool though (again, IMHO...)

I attach a few other shots for you. I love the 'break' Vel (estate version) plus some of the mods on the others...we're getting a good thread for Vel owners going here


Edited to add - Just looked at that Spanish link Oliver - excellent!! Apologies for the replication of the images :-)
