So this has gone as I mentioned. And replaced with... ST-Line 140, in the absence of the proper Mk8 ST being on sale. Different league, but still fun. Gearbox is in a different league in the other direction. Early days but grip isn't a lot different (same tyres), but handling isn't on a par. Much more body role but the ride is about the same (which is a pro for the Renault). Interior is better, sound is better (B&O upgrade), sound (exhaust/engine) is worse, insurance is worse, lights are better, 10mpg better on cheaper fuel (standard rather than high octane), tech is better, interior space is worse. Renault offered nothing that interested me. Based of this, I will be swapping this for a ST next year.
