    The admins should be able to change your username. They were so kind to do it for me because I messed up mine when I registered. @PaulD???

    Change of account name

    Hi, question for admin.... when I joined OZRS was considering purchase of an RS and created an account without too much thought and used my current project car name KUGAST. Now that's I have an rS on order, I would like to be more frenchy to reflect the change of car. Therefore is it possible to change my account name or do I have to close my existing account and then re create myself in OZRS?

    Hello fellow Renaulters

    Nice to see a community about an engineering masterpiece agreed ? I have a 2013 Renault Megane RS265 Cup and I’ll tell you a funny story on how I acquired this gem... I was looking for a reliable, powerful sleek hatchback that doesn’t have a Volkswagen badge, I was tossing up between a Ford Focus ST or a Abarth. Until one day I was watching the Italian Grand Prix when a feature car was shown going around the track, and what do you know, it’s a Megane Trophy-R on Cup 2 tyres ripping around the coners, I was taken back on the sheer grunt of the engine noise and how the car handles around the corners taking understeer like a champ, props to the Cup 2 tyres for keeping the grip planted at all times, I guess that’s what you get for $500 a tyre. After that stint I looked into Renault Meganes for a while but didn’t realize I was looking at the Megane GTs, as much as they are a great car, it wasn’t the one I was looking for. Not long after I saw that RS option, as I was looking through the cars available, one caught my eye. It was a white Megane RS265 with red details, aftermarket sprayed roof with heated RS leather seats. But something was off, it only has 2,000kms on it.... How can a 5 year old car have such little kms???? We went to check out the car and the guy was a bit sketchy to be honest, we met in a street at an industrial area and the car was there waiting for us. It was beautiful, and in pristine condition. Everything was working besides the battery, when I was taking the car for a test drive I stalled it and the battery died, the reason for the battery dying was because the car wasn’t charged properly, the car wasn’t used enough for the battery to be in good health. So I thought it was odd that a young guy with a sports car barely put any Kms on and and doesn’t drive it enough to charge the battery ?? Odd right?? So I did my research and discovered that the Megane was actually a demo model for a dealer for 4 years, and the car was only recently bought and sold to the guy I was buying it off. So after the revs check and history research I decided to take a risk and buy it.. for $19,000 What a Bargain!!! And till this day after 1year of owning it, the car has been flawless and is an absolute gem!!! p.s it’s still in pristine condition I wash and wax it every week !,...

    Hello

    Looks mint!
  12. I would recommend chopping the rear muffler if you want bangs and pops, and want to keep the turbo whistle (but see below). Chopping the muffler does cause drone at a certain engine speed but it's not really an issue. From memory it was in third gear at about 70kph (when normally you'd be accelerating or changing to fourth anyhow, not just letting it overrun). My aftermarket K-tec system drones much worse as it's 1800-1900rpm in all gears, so driving quietly is not really an option for me!
  13. I wouldn’t have thought so, as the space saver has a big sticker picture on it saying it’s for the rear only. And from what is in this thread, they share the same rear brakes

    Megane GT220 Wagon - Smells of garlic and cheese

    I wonder if that is because of the RS front hubs? My GT doesnt have the fancy perfohub setup
  15. Almost a full cm shorter, the difference in rim thickness between the steeve and the steel space saver. On a Meg 3 8:08

    Hello

    Megane GT220 Wagon - Smells of garlic and cheese

    Thanks guys, I'd forgotten the reason why I'd ditched the steel wheel and gone to the 18" spare wheel. I have a Mazda rx8 18" wheel as a spare so I don't have to fiddle with front to rear exchanges on a country road. Same pcd, centre bore and offset. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    @Deet Cheers for the welcome - you're right about the RSs being well-suited to the roads. I had a look at one a couple of months ago and the owner demonstrated its capability on a drive up to Windy Point - they can certainly keep speed up through the corners... @SamR Good to hear that they retain their charm - I've driven a couple now, and apart from some minor quality issues (i.e. the steering wheel falling apart), I can see that it would be a car that you could enjoy for a long time. @Iconic83 Thanks for the tip - I can't see the ad any more, but am I correct in assuming that it was the black 182 in Plympton (~65K kms)? If so, you're right that it was a bargain - I missed it by a few hours, and it was on sale for less than a day.
  20. My space saver spare says not to put it on the front and comes with some shorter bolts for mounting

    Nothing I've noticed. Mine you I've got Ventus RS3 tyres on so they replace any other noise the car makes!

    That's the one! Just decide if you want the velcro or nut/bolt version. I have the verco one - perfect. No droning on the prior question either. At highway speed you can't pick a difference, but giving it beans you most certainly can. Plus pops and cracks in Sports mode too

    Any cons? Like droning at highway speeds?

    The one thing to hook up via ebay (or from a member here who makes em) is a OEM look deadpedal that slots into the footwell like Renault intended - costs about $50

    They should all be the same - just compare the prices. It's a pretty simple process.

    Any recommended shops in and around Melbourne for this?

    Megane GT220 Wagon - Smells of garlic and cheese

    Safetyman has covered most of it, only thing i can add is that the stock spare wheel doesnt fir on the front hubs, it doesn’t clear the brake calliper. I had a string of warranty-related issues a couple of years back, clutch cylinders and shoddy dealer repair work but touchwood its been reliable since then. Approaching 100k KM now
