  1. Is RS megane allowed for P plates

    Mine was tuned. Even in stock trim its still a weapon, I drove it plenty stock and I stand by what I wrote.
  2. Is RS megane allowed for P plates

    In a straight line (which is what most p platers care about) a DCI 175 will outpace ANY 225 you put it next to and give the later Meganes a serious run for their money. I know because I had one. In fact, the 175 will not drop in perceivable power up until 245km/h when the ECU cuts the acceleration. My 225 struggles big time to reach 200km/h. You can buy ANY diesel while on p plates. Audi Q7 in diesel spec are stupidly and I mean seriously stupid fast. Completely legal. Stop arguing over semantics. Driver education is the only problem worth addressing. Outside of that. If someone wants to drive something illegal that is on them and nobody has any right to tell them otherwise. The only remark worth making (IMO) is: Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
  3. Is RS megane allowed for P plates

    The DCI 175 is P plater friendly (and legal in Victoria) and trust me when I say it gives 225's a run for their money. I had one for my last year and a bit of my p's with a tune. Absolutely rapid and got 1000k's a tank. Worth looking into. Would own another one.

    Yeah pretty much. I was going to type LS but then thought of course there are plenty of barras going around so changed it to simply V8. Sounds like a hectic build though haha.
  5. English Newbie

    I think Quad was referring to the builds over in the UK not here in Australia. In that respect he is just stating the obvious that plagues countries that have far less restrictive rules than Australia (eg - USA, NZ). Even still, the amount of "chopped hectic VE's" in this country would beg to differ. We have just as many dodgy cars here in Australia, the only difference being that folks that do those builds have gotten slowly better at hiding the dodgy builds while in the other countries they just celebrate the builds. I've got friends that have (on their P's) built rb's into 350kw+ monsters and put them in their already legally registered 1.8ltr NA 180sx. They just keep the car looking clean, completely stock and put a conservative exhaust. The cops never pay any attention and since building rb's is one of the only cheapish engines in this country (outside of a v8) they just keep it registered as the stock car. If they happen to crash they just tear the engine out themselves, buy another body and replace the engine once again. Personally I'd disagree on the point of modding newer cars. We don't see it here because of location and cost but if you go to other countries like above you will note a vibrant modifying scene for brand new cars because they can get away with it far more than we can.

    You can count on 1 hand the only conversions that seem regular in this country. Honda engines in lotus', RB's in various JDM and ADM's , rotaries in a few random cars and lastly the classic ls swap. Anything else is usually in a magazine in this country as it's usually a crap ton of money, time and very rare aha.
  7. English Newbie

    Everything is more expensive when you live on a giant island haha. Carsales is probably most peoples go to for perusing cars but both gumtree (I'm sure you know this one) and quicksales are worth looking at. Especially quicksales. Sometimes insane bargains can be had.
  8. English Newbie

    I think that was because we had a sever water shortage across the country (Vic was the same) so that was for an actual legitimate reason.
  9. English Newbie

    The cops don't pay any real attention to Renaults. My orange one has different color panels, is lower than legal height, is fairly loud and has a bunch of completely illegal modifications. I've been in a line up and the cops literally just look at it, probably wonder what it even is and then move to the next car. The chance of getting pulled up is pretty damn low unless you are actively driving illegally and they spot you doing it. I wouldn't worry too much (if at all personally). Good luck finding a ride!
  10. English Newbie

    I just remembered a good one. In Vic it is against the law to install a cover or change the gear shifter so that it doesn't have the shift pattern lmao. Depending on the cop you could get a defect notice rendering the vehicle unable to be driven legally on the road until you get it cleared. There are other just as silly rules but you get the idea. (It's not all bad but there are definitely some questionable laws)
  11. English Newbie

    Don't forget it changes each state as well lmao. What is legal in Victoria may not be legal in New South Wales vice versa etc etc so as soon as you drive over the border it's fair game according to the police.
  12. What Model Rs Did These Wheels Come From

    Because they came on the clios. They probably fit the meganes no worries but never came on them.
  13. New Rs Candidate

    Definitely, I had the max I was going to go and he went lower so was very happy with the outcome.
  14. New Rs Candidate

    If a 10 is a mint condition and a 5 is a daily used but cleaned only every few months. This is easily a 2 or even a 1 (I'll go with a 1 since he was a smoker). Nevertheless for the plans I have it was the perfect pick up.
  15. New Rs Candidate

    I had a 175, completely underrated. I can't remember who it was on the forum but a member had a drive and to quote "It's oh so wrong, but oh so right" haha. Also 1100K's out of a tank WITH a tune. Can't complain.
