    Hello Hello Hello

    Welcome Mark but I must ask you these questions three: - WHAT is your name? - WHAT is your favourite colour? - WHAT is your preferred specification of RENAULTsport Megane configuration? But seriously, I look forward to assisting on the journey! Alex

    Help in deciding between Clio RS 182 Variants

    Agreed but there's a fair bit that needs doing to bring it up to scratch. I'd pay around 36% of the asking price

    Help in deciding between Clio RS 182 Variants

    Welcome mate. I'd be going that low km silver 172 for $6k for sure! Super sleeper on the road and there's really not that much difference that you or I would notice when driving the 172 and 182 Cup back to back. The 172, being slightly softer, sounds more suited to your needs anyway. Just quietly, that $11k is laughably priced, given the apparent condition in the photos (see rims, bonnet and seats) and the fact it had belts done in 2014, so they're due again. Old mate in the ad, says "major service and timing belt replaced at 70k in 2014 not due for another 50k" - sure pal, I'd be getting that in writing if I was the purchaser!

    New Member looks for first RS - 182 or R26!! Help!

    Congrats. The 3-dr 225s are pretty rare in non-R26/225 F1 Team guise. They're no different to a 5-dr non-Cup save for perhaps a slightly stiffer body given the 2 less openings. Otherwise the same. I think they're desirable, as they look awesome with the unique side rear window. Enjoy

    How to spot a rs200 cup?

    Sorry, I meant Clio 3 200 as opposed to Clio 4 200 EDC.

    How to spot a rs200 cup?

    ^^^ that's all true for Europe. But in Aus we only got the Cup in the phase 3 200 series

    Selling Fiesta ST for a second hand Clio RS200 EDC??

    Welcome! The 200 Cup's ride is actually pretty good due to the hydraulic bump stops. It's firm but not crashy and better than the ST at low speeds.

    Just bought my first rs 225

    Phase 2 225 (facelift and different tail lights) was available in 3-door Sport (non-Cup) for a brief time. It had silver 17" multi-spoke rims (like the Clio 197) and silver Brembos. They also had cloth seats with the blue trim inserts on the edges. Like this one: https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Renault-Megane-2006/SSE-AD-4789521/?Cr=1 and this one: https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Renault-Megane-2007/SSE-AD-4870854/?Cr=4 I think you'll find the insurance companies, Redbook etc make no distinction between the 3 and 5 door models of the Sport.
