    …I hope so Oli. After all French marques must be the first in their country. I do not know what the French see about the vw polo… is so plain! Must be quite cheap in France.

    @Miguel This is a weekly chart update. No chance of VW overtaking Renault over an entire month. VW results are always good at the beginning of the month in France but then tails off.

    That would be strange, but there is a new Clio due soon so things will probably change, I like the look of the 208
