    2017 Clio Zen

    Clio for looks, the Polo for perceived build quality if that's your thing. I had the last gen Polo Gti 6R, the interior material is a step up from the Cilo if a little blend. I would imagine the new Polo to be a bit funkier with that new dashboard.

    First Renault (RS265)

    It's not only louder (only slightly) but it also liberates all the POPS!!!

    Selling Fiesta ST for a second hand Clio RS200 EDC??

    For your reference, the RS200 Cup Trophy I test drove deal with undulation and speed humps better than the Polo GTi 6R I had. (not sure which Polo you had before the FiST)

    Rs 265 Cup Or Trophy

    My 265 also has some side to side play, maybe it's a design flaw. Will need to get it checked out next time I'm in for a service.

    I got a 13 model earlier this year with about the same km. Interior creaks is a given from either the sides, the dash or from the glove box, take your pick... As chuckovski points out, the center delete is nearly a must for all 250/265 unless you're planning to do the whole system. On nomral mode it's complete civilized, when on sports mode it will pops and crakles on up & down shift which mostly make up for the frankly rubbish stereo.

    That stereo is rubbish, a new head unit is needed... However, then it wouldn't look stock.

    Looking At Buying 250 Or 265 Cup Or Trophy

    Hi Paul, They're mechanically very solid, my brother had a 250 for 18 months with no issues at all (chipped & exhaust mods). Can have a quick look at the technical section of the forum to find any common issues. http://www.ozrenaultsport.com/index.php?/forum/45-megane-iii-technical/ Talk to 27AME, I was looking at his Red Bull (well looked after by the looks of it) but ended with the dealership options because I wanted to do a trade in.

    Looking At Buying 250 Or 265 Cup Or Trophy

    Hi Paul, Just brought a second hand Megane RS myself, so I've done a bit of homework... All RS has LSD except for the 2013 Megane RS Sport Edition, you can spot them by the silver Tibor wheels, dark blue paint job and the Recaro seats. They have the softer Sport suspensions as well. According to the cost of ownership from Renault - 60k (72months) - coolant/brake fluid replacement, pollen filter, spark plugs, fuel filter & 100k (120months) - Timing belt. From July 2014, all RS cars received 5 years warranty (if that's important to you) Gabe

    New Sydney Member With R.s. 265 Cup

    Hi everyone, After a 10 years hiatus from owning a Frenchie (had a 98' 306xt), I'm finally back in the blue, white and red colours defecting from ze Germans. I picked up the car a week ago from Brian Hilton Gosford... a big shout out to their sales manager Lindsay, great guy to deal with and a genuine car guy. I look forward to seeing other members on the road & in future meet ups. Look out for me around the Frenchs Forest, Terrey Hills, CBD & the Zetland area! Gabe
