    Newbie - Megane RS 265 Trophy +

    Welcome to the Coastie crew. Hope to catch up on a drive soon and see if we can get you interested in a track day at some point. Have had my 265 for almost 5 years. Still love it! 🙂 As tonym said, a few of us up here now.
  2. How would you know? 😁😎 Anyone would think you have had an intimate relationship with it. I see it still has one of your knobs in place. As you say, still looks nice.☺

    Thinking about it, not as silly as it sounds. Slow code - heavy/inefficient, fast code - light/efficient.☺ Something, in my limited experience, not evident in most software these days.

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

    Welcome, car looks great! I have had a MY12 pre-face lift 265Cup for almost 5 years, and still love it! Plenty of joy ahead.☺

    New Megane RS 250 Cup Trophee

    Looking good! Although my preference is to retain the RS badge. With regard to the brake warning , check the fluid level and the brake pad (thickness) material remaining. The fluid level tends to go down, in the reservoir, when the brake pads wear,which is one of the things the sensor picks up, causing the dash light to show. General consensus seems to be not to 'top up' as when the pads are replaced it will force the brake fluid back up into the reservoir causing it to exceed MAX level and possibly overflow. If you have to 'top up' continually find the reason why, could be a leak in the system. Shouldn't be an issue if the car has been serviced regularly. If aware of all this, disregard the forgoing, sorry if telling you 'how to suck eggs'.

    I can relate to that. 🤔

    Help please

    I think the 250's were made up until mid 2012. I have a 265 manufactured in October 2012. So you're probably right especially if it has the yellow tacho. Mine has a grey tacho.

    Welcome to the forum. Great looking Clio 200, love the colour. Enjoy the drive, they are fun. Mase will know the SA connection.

    Welcome. Always happy to have an international flavour on the forum. There are plenty of people, with experience and knowledge, that are more than willing to help if in need. Glad you love the drive, they are addictive. Enjoy. ☺

    Rs275 aircon relays/fuse location

    Yes, would be good to have the information. Have had my 265 for 4 years and have not had to replace a fuse (touch wood), but would like to be able to if needed. Owners Manual says 'take it to the dealer' which, IMO, is BS. We know that it comes under the heading of 'price gouging' as no doubt you would be charged to have it done. Oh, what ever happened to the simple days.

    Hello from Switzerland

    Welcome! Great to see an 'international flavour' happening on our forum. Would be great to hear more of your Renault RS exploits and products you have or are developing in relation to them.

    Announcement: Forum Upgrade 4/7/17

    Thanks all, for your efforts in getting the forum back to 'normal' (what defines 'normal'?). I have a very elementary understanding of what's required with this task but if it's anything like what has to happen just to keep 2 or 3 devices up to date (I would imagine 1000 times worse) it would be a real PITA. Whilst Tapatalk has not been my interface with the forum I can see, for some, it would be easier to use their phones 'on the go.' The forum has allowed me to share, and meet others, with interest in things Renault RS, at whatever level. I'm sure if we have patience it will return to full usability. I have noticed over the last couple of days that some of the functions (new content, PM's) seem to have come back to 'normal'. Hope you have success with the re-integration of Tapatalk without too much further trouble.

    +1^. It is not as easy as it used to be just to get a 'last posted' update without a whole lot of other stuff. It was great to be able to get only what you hadn't read. Seems that I have to do some extra steps to get there. OR I may be just me getting older and less embracing of change.

    Welcome! There are knowledgeable people here to help with enquiries you may have. A number of which are covered in the Meg III Technical section. Exhaust options are from Akrapovic ($3000 +, may be some gains hp wise) to a 'mid-box' chop ($80-$150 mainly to improve sound). Those with experience will be able to comment further, although it is covered extensively in the technical section. Main thing is to get out and enjoy the drive and do a track day so you can explore the limits in a relatively safe environment. Enjoy
