  1. Help please

    I remember a few years ago when I sold my 182, the first person who came to see it didn't want to drive it! I drove it first, then I actually had to push him to have a drive (he wasn't a new driver or scared of driving from what I could gauge). Anyway, he bought the car. He said 'as soon as I saw it I knew I wanted it'!
  2. Is RS megane allowed for P plates

    All the new model Clios (IV) are auto - 2013 onwards. Anything before that are all manuals (2001-2012). But yes, not too many on the market at the moment, it's a matter of waiting till the right one comes along..
  3. Is RS megane allowed for P plates

    I think RS Clios are OK. Not as quick, but if anything they are more fun to drive than a Megane (and a bit cheaper).
  4. Is RS megane allowed for P plates

    There is a VicRoads register somewhere where you can check all models, but pretty sure it is not allowed......
  5. If it has taken a chip out of the windscreen then I would think the whole screen will need replacing. Happened to our Mitsubishi and couldn't be repaired. If not, maybe it can be repaired.
  6. On The Hunt For A 197, Help Me

    The silver 225 in Cairnlea looks quite good - low k's, good condition and reasonably priced. Like apple says above, very different cars, you should go drive them first. The blue one must be a cup - red calipers, anthracite wheels, etc. Best 225 colour in my opinion. Not sure why he's got those silly protection strips around the car, hopefully they come off without affecting the paint. That car also looks a good buy.

    What's the deal with Albury? I assume it must be a NSW registration, or can they have either? In that case I'd go with the NSW car. And yes the steering wheel condition is a big one for me - pet hate.....melted Clio steering wheels.

    Not really cheaper considering you've got to go to NSW to buy it (otherwise buy unseen and transport costs), and re-register it, etc. Must be a pain in the a*** buying interstate.

    It's not just Renaults that sit around for months. Lots of other cars do as well, I've been looking for a "reasonably priced car" my son can learn in. The biggest factor I've found is the transmission. The cars which hang around the longest are usually MANUAL. Most people in this country don't know how to drive them. And of course all RSs bar the Clio IV are just that........

    The k's aren't too high. But the price is a bit high for the k's. I've been keeping an eye out for the one in Melb, but it hasn't been reduced at all for several months.
  11. On The Hunt For A 197, Help Me

    I can recall a 200 Cup Trophee going for sale in Brisbane a couple of months ago, not much over 100k's for around $9K. Full service history and looked in great condition. Was sold in a few days.
  12. On The Hunt For A 197, Help Me

    I've been on the look out for one of these also. Lately they are very hard to come by. $13K should get you the best 197 around. Like the poster above says, that money would get you a 200 perhaps with higher k's. I would prefer the 197 because of the non-cup suspension, a bit softer for a daily driver. Otherwise the 200 is considered by most to be a better car.
  13. Megane Gt - Traffic Alert And Speed Cam Alerts

    Mine seems to be working fine (Meg 3), but what I have noticed is that the alert volume has been significantly reduced, and is not adjustable. This has been the case since the last service (and software update I would imagine). Prior to this, it was so loud the passenger (and sometimes the driver) would get a fright. I assume this is the reason they've made the change?
  14. 2013 Rs265 Cup Or 2013 Rs265 Redbull Rb8?

    With a price difference like that I would definitely go the cup.
  15. Megane Rs250 Or Ford Fiesta St

    I've had a 172, 182 and a 225 before the 265. To me the 265 is a monster compared to the other 3. I'm no racing driver, and I'm simply too scared to take it anywhere near its limits....to the point where I question if it's really the car for me.
