    Luis at Alpine worked in Diepe as far as I believe. Sadly he has since retired and sold the business to a new owner, not one of his mechanics.

    First World Problems ... What To Do With $35K?!

    Haha thanks! I actually think its the reservoir thats the problem. Will change it and see what happens. But all that aside, gorgeous car, drives very much like a meg225. Comfortable, economical and quite quick.

    First World Problems ... What To Do With $35K?!

    I know the feeling. I got a Giulietta QV for that exact reason. S3s are super quick, but dull compared to a Megane. The GT220 is a nice car, but doesn't have the RS special stuff(perfohub, diff, brakes) but with a few more dollars and a broken RSM, you could transplant the front end of an RS into the GT. Id like to see that

    The ZF 8 speed is a brilliant gearbox and considered better than most double clutch units. I'd have it instead of the manual, but I've already let myself out of thos thread. I'll let myself out again

    Help! Buying A Clio 182 In Sydney

    Now I feel bad. But the 172 does have a spare tyre and better suspension that a standard 182...

    English Newbie

    I had a copper here in Canberra pull me over and after i'd talked my way out of a ticket, he commented that i wasnt a hoon in a hoon car. I was in the Clio with bonnet pins, on coilovers, semislicks, ktec stealth exhaust and ITBs under to hood. yes officer, i'm not a hoon at all... Previously I've been pulled over in my obnoxiously loud Alfa 156 GTA and no questions were asked about the noise or ride height. Just what the engine was.

    Help Me Choose - Rs 225 Or 175 For Daily Driver

    Sadly I don't think there is a lot of knowledge on the 175 on OZRS due to them being a bit of a rarity. They're not often tuned but I recall when they came out, there were only a few seconds off the RSM225 at Wakefield. As a package there isn't anything that comes close really and with a remap, DPF delete and a few tasty mods, you'd have a very quick car that runs on an oily rag. I had considered it, but my wife and financial adviser suggested that a newer car would be a better option. Plus i want recaros. Good Luck.

    New Act Megane Owner... Almost

    With an RStuner, you can awaken the engine. Its exactly the same as an RS265. Get suspension amd brakes from an RS and you're set...

    Upgrading a Scenic with RS-Components

    Soo i think the question is now, can you stick a F4RT in the Scenic with Cup suspension? A scenic manula can be had for $2k A F4RT shouldn't be that much and Im sure there is someone out there selling some suspension/hub parts...

    Upgrading a Scenic with RS-Components

    To be fair, he did only say from takeoff. Could be the first 10m where the scenic is the king. Both the WRX and M3 have very specific higher power bands and the Scenic would be designed for low down pulling power not hight end BHP...
