  1. 200 has seatbelts for 4 people, 197 has seatbelts for 5
  2. If this thread was any more ambiguous I would think it's one Matts cars.
  3. Sweet pick up Grace! Nice presentation from the dealer too.
  4. I called them a few months ago too and they said if you have a few events scheduled for the year they can discount the premium. I didn't discuss numbers but I went back to Shannon's with that info and the conversation ended pretty quickly.
  5. I quite enjoy braking really hard (when safe to do so) cause the Brembo's stop well. This can lead disc wear as a result tho. You may have some artifacts on the pads or discs causing them to squeal.
  6. Even the number plate is great looking.
  7. Congrats mate! Really surprised you got one with such low km's and so close to your target price. Take care getting in and out of the car especially with denim and coa*** fabrics to keep the Recaro's nice. It's awkward at first but you get used to it. EDIT: *within your budget! Just read your Whirlpool post.
  8. I haven't really kept track of many come up for sale on a monthly basis but the grey one for $13k is a really good package. Your mileage criteria will have the buyer asking for more than your budget.
  9. Fair point but you're looking at end of life cycle units that have cumulative updates and variations from 7 years of building this chassis. I think you're right on with the late model holding value though. Going by that logic the Meg LE should hold it's value especially with how well specced it is.

  10. RS's depreciate severely. Regardless of which one you get you need to accept the resale will be poor however at $13k there's hardly anything left to lose!

    Noobie Saying Hi

    Welcome Kera! Great time to get behind the wheel of a Meg 3. Sub $20k in some cases. Can't report as an owner but I have seen the engine mounts to present as an issue. Have a read through here - http://www.ozrenaultsport.com/index.php?/forum/45-megane-iii-technical/
  12. I held out for about 4 months while shopping around and my preference was to buy a forum members car. If they have a car thread you can see the history under their ownership, carsales can't show the ownership experience of an enthusiast like a forum can. Have a look through here - http://www.ozrenaultsport.com/index.php?/forum/46-cars/
  13. It's a neat little unit, the 2 I've purchased (for separate cars) were both from eBay shipped from the U.S. Sorry, I'm unsure of local distributors.
  14. The Arc Audio XDi 450.4 is 53mm in height for reference. Agreed, there's nothing like some low end bump from a stereo
  15. Just one on the front it seems... I thought it was more of a supporting bar? The seat rail has a latch from the rear seat leg of the Recaro to prevent the sliding on mine. I slid the seat back and the bar wouldn't clear my fingers resting on the amp, maybe 5mm of clearance from the bar to the amp. That amp pictured is an Arc unit which is now discontinued. Replacement model is the Arc Audio XDi 450.4 which is 5mm shorter in height. The tail light access hatch is a neat spot. The rear speaker cavity has lots of room as well. The under seat option is a little risky if there are little ones to cart around. Drink spillage can happen when cornering like one does in an RS...a no open food or drinks policy in the car becomes the next topic of conversation
