Diesel this time Tom.
OOOH...

You won't being doing much inner French city driving in 5 years then :lol:

Thankfully Mac (FE post) has a route around Paris when driving to Calais. It goes via Caen or something :?

So you are sorted if you ever drive to the UK.
I’ve never really looked into it with any detail but I’m sure that the pollution control zone is inside the périphérique. The route that I use to avoid Paris will certainly remain unaffected and there will be no need to go anywhere near Normandy.

You cannot just pick a manufacturer that's against the rules but its not a Volvo :lol:
Top speed is just under 250, so its not a Dacia but has very good fuel consumption if driven normally.

I think it is the A86 now ?????

Diesels will be banned from most cities in the not too distant future. Paris, Lyon, Grenoble, Lille etc etc.

I am not sure I would buy a diesel now. I like driving in Paris.

I only go to Calais via Paris.

I reckon Mysty has bought himself a 3 serie BMW cabriolet.

The first car we bought brand new in France was a Renault Scenic
Currently drive a Scenic it is one of my favourite all time cars. It replaced the last Scenic we lost in a flood, and we didn't hesitate to get another.
When I get a minute...I will tell you about our Scenic. It is not so much about the car.....but Renault.

Renault....never again.
French cars probably to be avoided, judging on French attitudes to work in general, quality control, customer care...... just to mention a few issues. Toyota, Mazda, Kia, Ford, Hyundai all superior for similar or less money. German marques if you want to ( and can afford) pay a premium.
