    Size difference between Clio 2 and Megane 2?

    Width between the rear armrests in my R26 is 1275mm. Four door will be about the same.

    Easier to replace than repair I think. They're not that hard to remove. They use some sort of adhesive in a couple of places for reasons I'm not sure about but probably just to prevent ingress of water and mud. Again, it's not hard to hack through the adhesive. Something like Sikaflex 221 would be fine to stick the new one on. Why not try to find a second hand replacement?

    Get a Clio, swap the exhaust for the sound and be happy.

    Vaughan's right. Don't do it.

    Congratulations and welcome Dock. Aftermarket lowering springs are not usually a performance upgrade, more cosmetic. Which is fine if it’s what you want. That being the case, I wouldn’t bother replacing dampers if the originals are still good.

  7. 3-dr better in every way 😁
  8. As a welded on R26 owner, I would say try to stretch to an RS250 if you can. Not hugely faster but many worthwhile improvements and better build quality. Otherwise a Clio will be more fun at legal road speeds than a Meg.

    F1 team 225 engine number location

    You can't see the engine number directly with the engine, radiator etc. in situ. You need a mirror on a stick and torch. It's very lightly stamped so clean the surface or you won't see it at all.

    On the front of the block, near the gearbox flange, level with the oil filter, between 2 strengthening ribs. Partly obscured by the dipstick tube in the photo (next post)

    Congrats! Your are doesn't need any mods for road use IMO.
