Got to ask, who has found the most rip of price for a dealer supplied "accessory".
I currently award the prize to my mother, the Renault dealer must love seeing her coming in. A plastic wind shield for the new Megane CC... £190. Disbelief is all I can think, Oh well its the turbo diesel convertable so the saving in a couple of months in fuel will pay for it..but come off it![:D]

Again Renault dealer. Wife has older other shape Megan Convertible, one of the last built. She saw one of these 'road boxes' for sale on E-bay sold for £180. "I want one," she said "but that price is too much,". Down to the dealer who huff'd and puff'd and announced that a new one in platimum would be..... £1500, thats right £1500 or "there abouts". So it's back to E-bay. £1500 for some plastic and a couple of locks. I ask you. I've bought cars with tax 'n' MOT for less.
