Oh dear!
The first problems have occured!
And our local dealership have called in the recievers!!.
Not a good week for Renault in the in-laws house!!

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....

It would seam that all manufacturers do not really care about UK customers, as we have no real car industry of our own now, its a case of you get what your given, where a tiny market in the great global scheme of things. Whilst abroad on holiday an italian guy who worked for Fiat told me that the UK gets the crap as far as their concerned so it would'nt suprise me if thats the attitude of all the European manufacturers. I would not be at all supprised if they stopped doing right hand drive cars altogether in the near future.

I would be surprised if this were the case. The UK market is very important. After all, who would Mercedes-Benz sell their tarted-up and overpowered models to if it were not for the vanity of the UK car purchaser? Taking the E-Class as an example, most continental Europeans seem to drive the cheaper and more sensible 200D versions.
