    Thank you all. Know the R27 you are talking about, not me. But local to Castle Hill & Baulkham Hills.

    Cheap to maintain. Basically an annual oil change and a belt every 4 years for about 1K. Tyres are cheap on the 17 inch rims. A very common size. Any half decent mechanic could do the oil but definitely go to a specialist for the belt. We can recommend them here depending where you live. You really ought to drive one though. They may not be your thing.

    As pointed out above, belts are important. Other than that they are pretty cheap to maintain, there are a few specialists (can't recall where you are...) and don't have any real vices. Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk

    Thanks SimonH. What are the maintenance costs like?

    It really depends on what you are going to do with the car, if you are going to use it on the track a Lot, then ITBs may make sense, otherwise they are a lot of expense for not a massive gain. Most 1x2s are getting a little tired but there are some great 200s around. Having had both, they are great cars but quote different - the 1x2 is more raw and fun but the 200 is maybe even better in the chassis dept though the extra weight does hurt it and they are pretty stiff for daily use. For a bit of noise, an intake makes more sense than exhaust and is a lot cheaper. Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk

    Maintenance Schedule Rs265 Trophy

    Thanks mate! Damn my last cap price service haha... it bloody doubles cost next service [emoji15]... So looks like the pollen filter will be extra. I’ve got them doing the gear box also - $80 for fluid (5L) and $145 labour = $225 all in. At least I’ll have fluid left the next one I guess. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Maintenance Schedule Rs265 Trophy

    Anyone still got this PDF? Won’t open - I’ve got my 30,000km service tomorrow - just want to check what should be included in the service. I think pollen filter and brake fluid? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    RS265 or 275

    Also just an FYI, most dealers have no idea what they have. Take this for example: https://www.carsales.com.au/dealer/details/Renault-Megane-2015/OAG-AD-15615009 Not a cup premium. My best guess is it could be a 275 cup with the optional leather seats. The cup premium is something like this: https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Renault-Megane-2015/SSE-AD-5517016 Note the Recaro Sportster CS seats in alcantara. There's one closer to you but I don't know if they'll drop to your budget. Note complied 2016, so warranty until 2021! https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Renault-Megane-2015/SSE-AD-5465120

    Yes 265 cups with roughly 20-30K km on them with certain plates are usually ex-rentals. I.e. look for newly registered in the state (NSW is up to DX.....) because they were probably bought on auction in Perth and registered very recently locally. Just looking now at car sales the *edit* crap load of 2016 cup 275 with approx 40000km on them, possibly from the same dealer, bit suspicious. I know very few people who will drive their megane that many km privately!

    Thanks. I am looking to spend up to $26k. I have seen a few between $24-28k. I have been warned some that appear in market are ex-rentals and to stay clear of them.

    Wanting some more noise!

    I have a sport 200, no change in performance (I haven't had it on the Dyno or anything though), no issues with droning etc. It's increased the fuel consumption but only because I love the sound so much! I'm thinking of removing the secondary cat (I think you only have one in the 220), reports that this also helps. Sports cat also would be very nice.

    Cool, what's your budget so we can keep an eye out for you?

    Wanting some more noise!

    Hey there! I am new to the forums and also a new Renault owner. I picked up my 2015 Clio RS 220 Trophy over two weeks ago now and loving every second of it. My friend owns a 200 and had the resonator removed from his and made it sound a bit nicer. I was wondering if there were any disadvantages to doing this other than making it a bit louder and more burbly. Does it decrease any power outputs or any other bad reactions? Cheers for your help!

    Thanks all for the fast and helpful feedback. I will keep searching/shopping. @chuckovski thanks for sharing info about your Trophy+. I am currently aiming for a 2015/2016 with warranty until 2021-2021.

    Isn't the question the difference between the facelifted 265 cup and 275 cup? If so, practically no difference. IIRC they are exactly the same, but the engine tune is slightly up to run the model out. Many of the 275 cup models came with factory optional leather seats too. Where are you located? I bought mine from the gold coast sight unseen, transported to NSW South of Sydney almost to my door for about $500. Shouldn't be any issue the other way around. I do have a 265 trophy+ with warranty if you're interested!

    Buy a face lifted 265 for cheaper and use the saved cash for mods/tyres/ insurance.

    apple3337, thanks so much for all the info. When I get one I will post about it straight away. What do you think about ktec racing itb’s on the Clio’s?

    RS265 or 275

    It's about 7kw difference so my opinion is you won't feel it at all. Personally I'd get myself a bargain on a 265 and save some coin and put an exhaust and air intake on, perhaps even a retune if it's your thing. But I do like the alacantara interior on some of the 275s.

    RS265 or 275

    Biggest difference from 265 to 275 was the adoption of the R link 2 (and warranty as you pointed out). There are 265 models with warranty still (the later ones) and there are variants of the 265 (limited editions mostly) that had the later spec infotainment. other than that it’s mostly trim differences between late 265s and the 275. You’d be hard pressed to notice the difference performance wise especially in Sport mode (which is the recommended mode at all times) except if you get a Trophy R. They are very different from either. Buying interstate should be no issue if you are careful and have it checked prior to purchase. I’ve bought interstate lots of times and no issues. Welcome to the forum and good luck with your search 👍

    Well for 15K you are open to any Clio 2 or a really good Clio 3. IMHO I'd go for a 3. They are the last of the NA hot Clio's and will be hold their value very well. There's 2 on carsales that stand out to me. This https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Renault-Clio-2012/SSE-AD-5610171/?Cr=8 or this https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Renault-Clio-2010/SSE-AD-5554065/?Cr=9 Both low klm and really nice spec and colour. If it was me I'd go the yellow one. The last year they were built (2012) a very collectable colour. Get it checked out (Adelaide people jump in here as to where) and if it's all good...BUY IT! Fly over and come back via the ocean road. With those low klm I'd be amazed if there were any issues. Very solid cars these. Just make sure it hasn't been in a serious accident. The only thing to factor in is a possible timing belt change at 100,000 klm or 4 years. Allow 1K. That's it! Shout out if you want to drive one. Check out the videos that I put together here https://clio3victoria.weebly.com/ And if that doesn't convince you... I can't help
