A few with the new number plate C4PTUR and optional extras...


A dream to drive my better half says...and we're going for a little run..

So very happy!

Didn't put on the mud flaps as it makes it look ugly...deciding whether to change to Manhattan seat covers...

Laaaaarvly! I think the Manhattan seat covers would be an excellent complement to the interior. See you went for your original idea for the plate from all those months back , a plate like that would cost a bomb over here!! Edited by: Cj86

Now that's a steal! Quick question your chrome tailpipe extension, is it the same as this one for the dacia?

http://renaultpartsdirect.co.uk/products/Dacia-Duster-Exhaust-Tailpipe-(Chrome)-50mm.html

As its a **** of a lot cheaper on its own than the whole style pack. They also have the captur door sills which ill probably buy too.

Difficult for me to say...to be honest...if it's the same diameter it would fit I think ..but will they give you that info and lose the money? I don't know...wasn't bad here as the whole car and accessories are a lot cheaper.

Will try to measure for you!!

That'd be brilliant thank you, i'm guessing as they're essentially the same car I dont see why it would be a different diameter as the engine etc is the same. If so i'll order it online and fit it myself (as long as its a bolt on, not a welded one)and save myself a few bob! Edited by: Cj86

Cj86...now that I've seen it I'm even more doubtul...the tail piece is 20cm long and shaped ..it is narrower over the pipe and doesn't really fit snugly...it has a 5 cm diameter at the end but tapers in stages towards the exhaust...It's the shape that would concern me...

You know the bumper 'strengtheners' are just showy bits of plastic? They don't extend under the car like a terraine plate!!! What a price for a bit of short plastic...although they look great!!

How they can call them strengtheners beats me!! they're purely flimsy trim!!

Of all the things, I like the chrome mirrors and the sill protectors the most!

Tc...I'm pleased with it...but honestly the scuff plates are a rip off!! sorry Renault...but if that 'plate' extended under the car, both front and back then I would have been pleased....but it's literally what you SEE!....and it's plastic!!.....How much does it cost in the UK?...I think it cost me £240...and it will be more with you!!

Really sad price for what it is guys....spray away or someone else will make proper strong reinforcers.. Don't like saying it because I'm positively motivated to enjoy Renault's work and design..

Been out in it this afternoon and did a bit of mixed running...Fuel consumption in eco mode about 7/100 ..My partner's first attempts at driving an auto box, so really happy....she is as well, so that's a big thumbs up.. 9/10

Quiet, effortless gear changing...you genuinely can't hear the car do it...10/10

The criticism of the slowness of acceleration I put down to a bit of turbo lag, when you kick it down...but it still shifts and does the job! 8/10

Criticism?...Yes.... really upset on concrete slab roads and really uneven surfaces..and we still have plenty of them in Poland... 5/10

Cornering..slight body roll that WE need to get used to...8/10

Comfort..10/10

R-link radio and speakers 10/10...rest still to be activated.

Wow factor still remains at 10/10...as with people's comments...although my partner feels uncomfortable at being stared at...haha...could it be the number plate..or my stunning good looks? (NOT)!

SO FAR.. I could spend my whole time in that car...I'm still smitten!!!

Look forward to all your opinions...and those of you waiting know you have a treat in store!!

A lovely looking Captur Ythsie, I absolutely love the number plate!! I was looking to see if CA63TUR was available in the UK thinking that it wouldn't be too expensive however according to various websites it has already been allocated. I bet you are over the moon with the car and the accessories you have had. Lovely

Mind you the whole car does!!

Hi Ythsie , thanks for taking the time for posting the photos and writing a review of the car. Firstly car looks lush and I'm glad your so happy with it. Not sure if it's the photo but the colour of the car looks very similar to the oyster grey.
Really talking stupid money for that number plate across here. Your partner will have to get used to people looking in her direction me thinks.
Are you saying the ride is a little rough on uneven surfaces? I read in other reviews there is a little body roll on cornering, just something I will have to get used to. Looking forward to your honest updates, happy motoring.
