  1. Megane 225 Cup

    Got choice and welcome No meets I'm aware of, but we do need to have a drive day that's for sure - long overdue... There are track days coming up, ace is organising a Wakefield park one in September if you're interested

  6. Buying Used: 2015 Clio RS 200 Sport

    I don't know lots of people with Audis but the older ones that have been owned by friends (I presume it would be relatively old) develop very expensive problems, far more $$$ than you'll ever look at with Renault Yes the Fiesta ST is definitely an option; usually you're paying a lot more though for less doors (if you want more) and a less expensive gearbox on the second hand market. Manual, if you don't do lots of traffic, is always my preferred option. It will have less warranty left too, and from what I've heard Ford and Ford dealers are amongst the worst to deal with, though mind you I can't comment from first hand experience. I should also mention that the Clio has a timing chain, and the engine is a Nissan one. This is relevant because I imagine Marsch's expensive service was related to timing belts, which won't ever be a cost with the Clio. I'm a big big fan of the car, and for someone who has a Megane III RS which is more hard core and more up Marsch's alley, is saying something. I've also owned that car for coming up to three years now, and I'm very happy with it. I've yet to own the Clio for a year but still happy with it. I would say how important it is to make sure the one you're looking at is a good example though - you can buy the most reliable car that has been severely abused that will break down the second you hop into it. So make sure you get a very good mechanic to look it over, and call up Renault Australia as well as wherever they say they serviced it.

    There are HEAPS of Clio IV RS around, so many that they look bordering on common 🤣 Can't comment on how many compared to Germany, but they've sold so many more than Clio III it would be hard to imagine ours is a small market.
  8. Buying Used: 2015 Clio RS 200 Sport

    A 2015 (check build and compliance date) will have warranty until 2020. Services are pretty reasonable in my opinion, Marsch is in Germany, best to get Australian prices. My most recent Clio IV service cost $700 only due to the number of filters that needed replacing. That's pretty reasonable. I think an important question is what else are you considering?

    @Marsch is correct about the Clio III, they're brilliant and on track in a better driver's hands they're faster than my Megane (in my hands). Do you need four doors?

    @No152 has a Clio IV cup (or at least his boss does!) and can comment on mechanics they recommend up that way. If you are down my way feel free to have a drive! There are direct flights from Brisbane to Albion park nowadays. I have a Megane III which has been on the track quite a bit now and hadn't missed a beat. It hasn't even developed a rattle, which is more than can be said about a few Mercedes my parents have had. The Clio IV I have hasn't been on track yet, but mechanically it's been great. Usual French interior build issues such as my Bluetooth being patchy, some minor rattles. Gear box - just check that the update has been done. Renault dealers and the Renault Australia helpline are very helpful in informing you of all that stuff. But driving it will help you figure it out - even after 80000km mine doesn't slip or anything. Compare that to the DSG and power shift gear boxes I've driven... It's practically perfect. Do a launch control start too whilst you're test driving it. Do you have a link to the ad so we can comment if there's any helpful feedback we can give.

    I'd agree but mine (MY 2013) is perfect in regards to gear box. Are you referring to people who have had theirs dynoed, that it doesn't match advertised power?

    Hi and welcome! Is this repost? Seems very familiar. If you're nearby (I'm in the Illawarra) and want to drive mine to compare, let me know. They're great cars. Also let us know where you are so we can recommend a mechanic to do a pre purchase inspection.
  13. Driving Style

    Wow have you got a build thread? That kind of power sounds pretty insane
  14. Driving Style

    Yeah might be a bit far!
  15. Driving Style

    Where are you located? If you want a drive in mine and you're near the Illawarra let me know
