    G'day From A New Addict - 1st things?

    I totally get that you just sit in your car and don’t want to get out. I had exactly that feeling with my Megane 225 Cup. Whenever I parked it I’d look back at it until it was out of sight. It’s a RenaultSport thing.

    Rs 265 hatch rust?

    All cars come with a Warranty against structural defects like corrosion and it’s usually 5 years or more. So perhaps yours will still be under warranty. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Best priced 2004 Megane parts?

    Often it’s cheapest to ship parts from the UK, otherwise just google local parts suppliers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Better check the corrosion warranty. I’d be very surprised if that wasn’t covered. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Has OZRS changed

    I think the forum seems to be getting more fragmented as new models are created, and people mainly post in the section that is specific to their car. I don't venture into the Megane 250 section - except occasionally to have a dig at the looks of it - coz it's completely irrelevant to me. And the guys who've upgraded to a 250 probably won't be posting in the 225 section any more, so unless new 225 owners join the forum, the 225 section will slowly die. Perhaps it's time to consider merging the 225 and 250 sections, and likewise for some of the Clio sections.

    Not a Renault.... Vumnoo's SSS

    Nice ride Vumnoo. I've had 3 Pulsars. 1st was a 1998 SLX auto - slow POS that was, but brand new was very nice. 2nd was a 1991 N13 GL - I replaced the engine with the 1.8 from a Q, plus extractors, upgraded exhaust system, sway bar, upgraded brakes. The car cost $3k, and I spent $3.5k on the upgrades. Got $4k for it when I sold it. I may not have got back what I spent on it, but it was a great experience, and I loved driving that little thing. 3rd was a 2000 SSS - awesome which sounded very nice at 8k RPMs.
