    New owner Hi - 2005 Clio Sport 182 Cup

    Another Silver 182 cup. Welcome mate. I’m on my second silver 182 cup that I rescued from a hail storm a few months back. They’re addictive. I bought my first one in 06’, then bought a Megane 250 Cup Trophee and then an RS265 Red Bull, only to go back to the little Clio. Love them. See you on the road!

    thanks! @Jall 1 more question if anyone knows, the dealer says the car comes with 5 years factory warranty from build (2016) from renault, aka warranty untill 2021. However on the warranty website https://www.renault.com.au/ownership/warranty says megane only has when purchased in 2018. does this mean they changed their policy from 5 years to 3 years in 2018, however this car would still be under warranty, or the dealer just doesn't know what their talking about?

    You still get some crackle and pops with the standard exhaust. Some would say too much if you do a res delete...

    @chuckovski Will do. Even if it was an ex-rental, usually those companies get cars serviced on the dot and people tend to drive rental cars safely perhaps? Or, if it were a rental but still serviced at a reputable mechanic, would that be considered safe? Also 2 more years of factory warranty should be a good safety net, if it is ex rental? Thanks alot for your help, really appreciated!

    It could be an ex rental so check the books and other paperwork to see who did the servicing - often rental places do their own servicing and that gives it away.

    Need some help!!!!!!!!

    Hi ak275, I have just purchased a 2014 265 Cup Premium. I actually rang Renault Australia a couple of days ago, gave them my VIN number and that’s the model variant that they told me I have. After reading your post though I’m confused as my car does not have the Akro exhaust, it has 18 inch black Tibor rims, cloth seats, leather steering wheel, basically all the things that you are saying would make it a Cup model not a Cup Premium but as I said when I gave Renault Australia my VIN they told me it’s a Cup Premium???? My heads spinning now haha 🥴

    Hi there, that’s great, thanks very much. Yes a French mechanic that specifies in French cars sounds like a winning formula to me. I will put this workshop down on my list of places to try out. I definitely don’t mind travelling up to Brissy from the coast either if it means leaving my car with a quality mechanic that knows his way around it. Cheers Aaron

    Besides the fact of the no exhaust the car still ticks all of my boxes. So your guess is, it will sound like any regular 2ltr turbo car? Like i said, i can find little information about this particular "275 cup" any other things i should be aware of? Thanks for the help, appreciated

    I will say, there is an anomaly in all of this. And that is, that Renault tried to claim the power bump from 265 to 275 was partly due to the Akra exhaust as fitted to the 275 trophy/cup premium. Then they released a 275 Cup with the standard exhaust, which kinda debunks that theory.

    The cup s was a uk market only model. Basically a blank slate to which you could option Recaros, akra exhaust and ohlins dampers according to budget and needs. Our 275 Cup was available just for 2016, was specified the same as the 265 cup from 2014-15. 18 inch tibors, cloth renault sport seats, standard exhaust. So no you don't have an akrapovic Titanium exhaust, but a resonator delete will provide pops if need be.

Have not picked it up yet.275 cup - http://metrousedcars.com.au/c20861-554098-renault-megane-2016.html I cannot find any information about 275 cups. only trophy's and cup-s. With the silver tip exhaust, does this mean I won't get the crackles and pops?Thanks.

    Hi Aaron, I use Le French Motor in Woolloongabba and have found their service and knowledge exceptional. A French guy trained in France to work on French cars makes sense to me .... Some here will certainly disagree but since you're after opinions based on experience you'll have to try one and see for yourself. Cheers.

    Hi folks, I hope it’s not frowned upon commenting a slightly different topic in this thread but I think it’s somewhat relevant. I noticed quite a few people in this thread mention Renotech in Sydney for servicing repair needs but unfortunately I am up on the Gold Coast. I’ve searched Renotech for the Gold Coast and Brisbane with no luck and I’ve done some searches for Renault workshops up here with some results coming up but obviously I have no idea if the workshops are reputable or not...all the google reviews for them are split down the middle saying they are amazing or absolutely horrible haha. Can anyone on here that has had first hand experience recommend a reputable workshop either on the Gold Coast or Brisbane? I am new to the forum and a new Renault owner. I pick up my 2014 Renault Megane RS 265 Cup on Monday. Very excited! any info is greatly appreciated. cheers Aaron

    New owner Hi - 2005 Clio Sport 182 Cup

    Hi mate, good colour choice! same as my first clio. When i bought my 182 cup (127,000) i had a few noises from the rear. The rattles being the rear exhaust mounts (well overdue - i got pair of powerflex mounts from ktec racing online) and a clunking was my rear shock had seen better days. As for my old 2002 172 (i purchased at 175,000ish) the rear wheel bearing was in need of replacement, i got a pair of second hand rotors (unfortunately the bearing is pressed into them). It might be just one of those mileage things? My timing belt, aux belt etc was due on around 190,000 i believe but not really the type of info to go by! I can send you what i did to my current 182 cup when i bought it if it gives you some food for thought

    Thanks very much its certainly not the tyres as they're new so will focus on the bearings. will check the muffler mounts which I totally neglected and wait on word from the mechanic! Thanks, Lachlan

    New owner Hi - 2005 Clio Sport 182 Cup

    1. Could be bearings or old crap tyres. 2. Could be the rear muffler mounts. 3. Just drive it and see what his mechanic says to see when their due. A/C is also a common fault, and the auto wipers give me the shits, you’ll learn to live with them
