    Hello! Clio 2 PH1

    New key for your VIN from France is about $300, then about $80 for a dealer to code it. Its not too bad cost wise

    sorry mate I don't have a premium, no rear view camera. Yes the keys are a bit funny with interference. Mine doesn't work if its up against my phone.

    Congrats on the pick up 1. Brakes shouldnt be spongy, they usually have good feel. Check rotor and pad condition and fluid level 3. Its likely the t piece in the bonnet for the jet has cracked/eroded from heat. Can you hear the pump?

    Megane GT220 Wagon - Smells of garlic and cheese

    I wonder if that is because of the RS front hubs? My GT doesnt have the fancy perfohub setup

    Megane GT220 Wagon - Smells of garlic and cheese

    Safetyman has covered most of it, only thing i can add is that the stock spare wheel doesnt fir on the front hubs, it doesn’t clear the brake calliper. I had a string of warranty-related issues a couple of years back, clutch cylinders and shoddy dealer repair work but touchwood its been reliable since then. Approaching 100k KM now

    First Time Renault Owner - Gordini "little Fatty"

    Congrats, looks great! I would also be looking at new tyres because they are at least 5-6 years old and definitely past their best

    What about the GT220? You get the RS engine but in a more practical hatch or wagon...

    Sorry for the threadbump. For wagon/GT220 owners, does changing the headunit to a Megane RS unit fix the tweeter issue?

    Clio 197 V 200 Race Car

    OP, the discrepancy between 197 and 200's weight is a tricky one to explain. I believe the confusion lies in the differences between normal chassis and Cup chassis. Cup chassis are more rigid with extra bracing and welding in known weak points. This would certainly account for some difference. I wonder how much an R27 weighs over a 197? OP, the different suspension geometry, better gear ratios and quicker rack should be considered a big plus for the 200

    Clio 197 V 200 Race Car

    No LSD. Mechanically identical to the 197 in that regard. Open diff and perfohub as per Megane 2 RS
