    Select the + symbol, scroll down to throttle and select the one you want. I never use anything less than sport - it just feels doughy...

    I think the throttle settings DO make a difference. When you lift off abruptly to change gears in sport or extreme mine bangs a lot more readily than in linear...

    Sport mode, sport or extreme throttle setting, drive it hard, wait for the exhaust to warm and it’ll snap and pop!

    Resonator delete and magnaflow exhaust - you’ll love it. Beautiful car by the way!

    Mate, there are so many Meganes for sale you should just keep looking. You can always check if they claim it’s got full service history with a dealer. Lots of choice out there - take your time.

    Always loved these things. Volvo build quality is hard to beat.

    Clio RS blah blah blah... Sell me (or at least post photos!) of your RC30 and RC45! 😁 We have a Motorcycle Thread which of which I contribute 99% of content - feel free to add to it. And I’m sure the Clio is wicked. Welcome to Renaultsport ownership.

    I just brought a 265 Trophy!

    Nice mate and welcome. I had a Proton Satria Gti too, and what a nice little hatch it was. The previous owner put a beautiful exhaust on it - still one of he best sounding fours I’ve driven.

    Advice on buying Renault Megane R.S. 275 Cup Premiu

    What do you want to know? The reviews will tell you some of it and this forum has the rest! In a nutshell - brilliant car and in my experience completely reliable. Fabric seats suck up the dirt, best stick with leather. Save up for decent rubber and brake pads and you’re all set.

    G'day From A New Addict - 1st things?

    Ha Ha that’s funny! I did it too, my ex wife dropped me at the top and I rode down on my MTB. It was snowing. I had five layers on but it was pretty much the coldest I’ve ever been...

    Drive MY car? 🤯🤯🤯 I’ll take him for a spin in it... Theres a 265 for sale at a dealer in Adelaide - I’d definitely recommend taking it for a test drive. Mase - you’re too kind. You were in a 172 after all!
