Riyad, nice to read up about the gadgets and how they actually work in practice. Good to see your own illustrative photos as well, much more informative than the usual press pack shots.


But seriously, is anyone ever going to put 㿊k in a Renault? I don't mean to be cruel, but wouldn't a document shredder be more convenient?

As I said, you’re going to seriously want something a bit different to consider one of these over a smaller engined 3 Series. It’s a bold move from Renault to move into the luxury coupe market, and there’s a lot to like about the car, but there’s no doubt that it’s going to have a tough time in that market.





I’m going to get the new Megane Coupe out of Renault next I think. Plus the new Clio with TomTom sat-nav should be on the cards later in the year - both should be interesting.

Riyad. Just wanted to say, nice review, especially on the tech side. The Laguna coupe was definitely lacking a review like that before.





I just wanted to ask, how was the A2DP sound quality through the Bose speakers?





As far as I know, instead of the RCA inputs in the centre, there will be the "Plug&Music" terminal (on page 21 http://www.motorportal.com/ren... also located in the centre console storage box, with a USB and AUX-in jack. I think the "TunePoint system" (http://www.renault.co.uk/Resou..., which you mentioned in the review, is actually a connection box which fits in the glove box (dealer installed) and (I might be wrong), I remember reading somewhere, that for some reason it is not compatible with the Carmiat 3 3D (top spec sat nav).





Either way, enough of my tech neediness, once again great review!

@Peter - I’m afraid that the A2DP is the one thing that I didn’t get around to testing, which is why I merely mentioned its presence rather than discussing its performance. Unfortunately I use an iPhone which (currently) doesn’t support A2DP, so I couldn’t test it with the phone I have with me all the time. Although I have other phones knocking around, every time I remembered that I wanted to test A2DP, I wasn’t in the office and only had the iPhone handy.





Theoretically though, it shouldn’t sound any different from playing back an MP3 on a CD, since the same decoding hardware will be used in both instances.
