Re: Importing Laguna Coupe from France or Germany

I never realised they would still be supplying RHD versions in Eire, in all honesty.

That seems such an illogical move to remove the models from the UK, as surely there would be no additional costs involved in selling the model they already have homologated for the British Isles, and the tooling exists and is being used... (I thought they were doing a 'Vel Satis' whereby the small numbers being sold meant RHD production & specific parts couldn't be justified)

Whoever thought Renault were logical - zut alors, right enough...

Thanks for the insight & suggestion.


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