Now we are seventeen!

I've just noticed that our Fluence-owning numbers have now swelled to seventeen and to save others rummaging through hundreds of posts to check I provide here a list of users with cars.

WILLIAM - N. Oxfordshire
DONALD - ?
ELECTRIC DREAM - Scotland
CHRIS - N. Yorkshire
ROB - Essex
ELECTRIC DAVE - Cambridgeshire
ECOENERGY - ?
ZELEC - S. Yorkshire
DSCHIFTER - ?
LLOYDSRSL - ?
BUZBY - Scotland
DDD - Belgium
RAMON - Czech Republic
EEP - ?
AZC007 - Northants
MARTIN - Norway
PLOPFEST - ?

Apologies if I've missed anyone or you've said whereabouts you live and I haven't recorded it.

That's unlucky! (It's Buzby, actually) but I'm sure there'll be a few more soon - but I doubt we'll reach triple figures!

The UK members represent 20% of all UK Fluences.

So, err, how many other forums can claim to have 20% of all owners of a currently retailed marque/model of car?

Good point.

I phoned RCI yesterday on an admin issue and when I told him I had a Fluence, he said 'Ah, it's one of the dealer demonstrators then.....'

It foes appear it is no longer available as a new-buy in the UK.

That's right, stopped at the end of 2013. Of course you could take the view that it never really started? I wonder how many Fluences actually sold brand new at full price to private customers in the UK? Assuming 60 in total, subtract each dealer's demo vehicles, press fleet cars, the 10 that have "gone missing".... you get the idea. Rare? Hens teeth have nothing on it!

Weird how the Fluence is still on Renaults website but you get nowhere if you click on the price list or options etc. Stange its still on there though if it was discontinued at least 6 weeks ago.

It doesn't surprise me in the least, Renault UK does not appear to be remotely on the ball, let alone efficient. Perhaps they're going the way of BL?

STOP PRESS

It looks like we might be heading for 14 as I see the 500 mile Expression has vanished off Atutotrader's site. Unless it's joined all the other disappearing Fluences maybe another private owner has snapped up a bargain. I do hope so.

I'd noticed that too William.

Do you think it was Eep? I know he's been making noises about a purchase.
