    Buying Used: 2015 Clio RS 200 Sport

    "Australia is an important market for Renault Sport globally," he said. "We rank consistently in the top five [for sales] and on previous-generation Megane we were, for a couple of years, the second-largest market after the domestic market [France], so, we're well known and loved by them and equally we love them back."

    Yes surprising, I would have thought so too.

    Buying Used: 2015 Clio RS 200 Sport

    As far as I am aware, all edc updates with faster shift, updated software, shorter paddle travel etc, were included in the phase 1 trophy. Some good prices around for these. Interestingly as of September 2015 Australia was taking about 10% of the world wide production of RS Clio's. Pretty sure I read recently that Australia is the 3rd largest market for RS in the world after France and Germany, at one point it was number 2. Be careful with Audi, nice cars but .......

    Good luck. Do you mean a remap for the 220? The motors are the same in all 220's. Newer 220's are no different. However if you just want more power, I have heard of 300HP with the standard EDC reliably. Also I think 220's have an extra 300rpm on the limiter compared to 200's.

    Did you pull the trigger? Can't say I have noticed a change in the box, but that could be because I drive it all the time.

    With modern oils, I wouldn't be too worried about a few cold starts. Unless this has caused condensation in the muffler. Not prepping the car is another matter. Offer them $30k, enough left over for a good detail. Agree about the matt paint, but it does look good with the gloss black roof.

    Torque is the same for both 220's. It is 280 nm in the higher gears.

    Oh... Another good thing about the Clio IV, no timing belt to change.

    I put a list of the differences with the 220 and facelift 220 in the 220 trophy register blog. Mechanically they are identical. The Akrapovic doesn't improve performance, but does improve noise (but pre facelift noise still nice when putting the foot down). The main differences to the RS200 are the turbo, larger air intake, faster steering rack, lower ride height, different spring rates, different roll bars, shorter travel on paddles, different gearbox software, stop/start (now on all facelift models), different exhaust, Michelin Pilot Super Sports, some software settings. The update model is a slightly nicer place to be inside, but pre facelift had unique seats with Trophy logo. All of the release info said a larger turbo and on one of my posts I did actually find the model. I think physically it is the same size, but it spins faster (different model to RS200). I believe it is very similar to the NISMO Juke motor, but with more power. And the ride? Well it depends on what you are used to. I find my wife's Liberty too soft. I think it is better than my previous Megane Cup. The hydraulic bump stops really stop the car crashing over the bumps, but the car is firmly sprung. Personally I think it suits the car. Very relaxing to drive on the highway if that helps. Fastest regular production Clio built so far. Almost as fast as the stripped out R26R at the Nurburgring. I seem to recall Motor Mag recorded a 6.4s 0-100km/h. But of course it is all about the corners. Check out FastestLaps.com. I knew the facelift was coming when I bought mine and I do like the update lights, but I got a good price. Mind you I do like that RS18 all in black. I notice some damn good prices going around for the pre facelift, including some basically new ones. Full retail on one of these is over $42000, which is a lot of money. If I had to replace mine, I would save the money and buy a pre facelift one. And I do like the diamond cut wheels better!

    I have had the Trophy for a bit over a year now. Feel free to ask any questions.

    Hmm tried that. I can browse my pictures and choose one, and despite the link showing on the upload, it will not actually upload my photo. I have tried some different sizes and none work.
