  1. Hey hey rs fam, new here from Syd!

    Resonator delete is a must! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Newfound love for Renault Sport

    I too was initially worried about the rear view and blind spot since a few has brought it up. But I never really have any problems to be honest. Once you get used to it, all becomes second nature. Aftermarket support I guess in terms of products, yes it’s not as much but tuners like Ace can help you out. Controls are easy to get used to. I’m sure after 5 minutes you won’t even notice. I had a Clio 182 Cup previously which I sold to buy a house. What a regret that was. Got a WRX which always seemed lacking somewhere so now back in a Megane! Still think that 182 Cup is the best car I’ve owned. Wonder where it is now. Oh if you end up looking for a Megane, try to find one with Recaros. It makes a huge difference. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. Finally Did It! New R.s 275

    +1 if you can please get a part number for the cargo net [emoji4] It was very useful when I had the 182 back in the day. Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

  6. Hi Moosey, I placed an order for a sticker on the store a while ago now but haven't heard back. Not sure if there are issues with the store. Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

  8. Hey all, Just wanted to say a quick hello after getting my hands on a Megane 265 Cup Premium in liquid yellow of course. Had an initial hiccup of flat battery but that's all sorted now. I was a prior owner of a 182 Cup from 2005 to 2011 which I still miss everyday. But I couldn't be more happy with my choice now. The Megane boggles ones mind in how quick it really is. Spent a couple of years in the UK carless so the feeling of getting non other than another Renault Sport is ecstatic! First mod are black badges from the UK and have a RS gearknob and BMC panel filter to go on soon.
  9. Definitely go for the 2014. Because liquid yellow ftw! Also you'll regret not having recaros after owning it for a while. I'm sure you'll find a member with the 18's who would be willing to swap with the 19's when the time comes.
  10. Looking to get back in the RS fold

    Going by the carsales ads I can view, i think my preferences would be- 20th anniv edition Australian edition Cup trophee Love the look of those speedlines on the car! Just fits so well Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Looking to get back in the RS fold

    This is good advice, thank you Anthony I cant believe you still have your ph1! I agree that it would be nice to get a 182 but for a life keeper, its starting to get older now. And i think any downsides the Cup 200 have is completely offset by the positives. Which ones had recaros and brembos? I think I'll be aiming for the 20th Anniversary or a Trophee (do they exist in clio's?) going by specs I've seen so far. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Cheers R182 and Hindy =)
  13. Looking to get back in the RS fold

    That's great to know! Thank you Alex As long as the 200 still have the same driving dynamics and feeling of engagement that the 182 had, that's all I can ask for. I can't wait that's for sure, but just not ready yet at this time. Growing up apparently meant having to plan and spend on holidays and get mortgages hahaha But I'm hoping from middle of the year, I can start my search for my life partner! Gf I already have
  14. Hi Everyone, I was the original owner of CL10RS (silver 182 Cup) which was sold to Ryan who is also a fellow member here. I used to go to a few drive days and went to a dyno day or two. I think I was also one of the first non-Gordini Clio's to have a stripe installed. Had to get a sign maker to fabricate it because online and Ebay sellers weren't available at the time. Some of the earlier members I can still remember very well and so glad to see this forum just went from success to success consistently I sold my 182 to get in the property market which I eventually did, never staying too far away from OZRS. I still get excited everytime I saw an RS on the road specially when I first saw a Megane 250 on the road. OMG the on my face would not stop for hours... Fast forward a year of driving my gf Mazda 3 which is fine really, but I started to get an itch and wanted to get a car for myself that is more FUN than just going from A to B while asleep. So I started trawling Carsales to see what's available when a childhood dream eventually popped up. I always loved watching rally on tv and always had plenty of toy cars in a distinct Blue with Gold wheels. Next thing I know, I was driving a 2012 WRX in WR Blue! I know, Subaru has pulled out of rallying for a while but I was glad to have a childhood dream ticked! It wasn't the car I used to watch on TV and play with as toys but at least it came from that same heritage. The WRX itself was great, it was fast in a straight line, fast enough on corners and very practical. It's great to be able to drive to the snow and not have to pull over to the side of the road like the rest of the fake SUV's trying to fit snow chains while its dark and with heavy snowfalls. The car served its purpose well but it also did things that made me miss my 182 so much. Firstly it attracted too much attention from traffic light warriors and po-po! It drank fuel for the fun of it, it certainly wasn't as nippy as the Clio was which I think fitted my driving style more than a heavier AWD police magnet. Oh I was also paranoid parking it anywhere in public thinking it will be stolen as soon as I walk away... Anyway the car is now sold, surprisingly more difficult to sell than the Clio... Now I'm hoping to eventually get back in an RS one day. I'm not yet ready at the moment but I know now my next car will be an RS or nothing at all. I'm particularly interested in the Clio RS 200, I think its roughly 2010-2011 models. But there are so many variations, I'm still confused at which one exactly. I know it will be in either of these three colours depending on what is available at the time I serioulsy look for one. Liquid Yellow, French Racing Blue or White. For some whos owned both the 182 and 200, what do you think are the major differences driving wise? Sorry my long winded post, just wanted to give an update on what has happened since I let go of the favourite car I've ever owned! My next Clio will definitely be a keeper for life
  15. ryan_s found a 182 Cup!

    Thanks Ryan! As sad as it was seeing her go, I knew she was going to a great home. And definitely no one was ever allowed to eat or smoke inside that whole time" Enjoy the car as much as i did
