  1. Buying Used: 2015 Clio RS 200 Sport

    Cheers, there was me thinking Australia is one of the biggest markets for RS'. /s
  2. Buying Used: 2015 Clio RS 200 Sport

    Refering to some 49 pages thread nobody here can read due to language differences is meaningless - the squeaky wheel always makes the most noise and it could be that a handful of owners there got monday morning cars (which is unfortunate of course). It ignores the hundreds of others who havent, yet you make it sound like Ford Econoshift PTII. Renotech here havent made any noise about it, so I'm judging it by the Australian level of "severity" which seems to indicate it is not something systematic as you infer, but rather particular to unlucky indivduals. That is not to make like of those who do have some issues, I hope they all get it sorted to their satisfaction, but hyping it up is questionable.

    I love it when people who dont own or drive a C4RS proclaim to know all about owning one. OP: here is some more pertinent owner feedback to the same question:
  4. Owner of new 220 trophy

    Congrats mate, you should add yours to the 220 register in the Clio IV forum I was one who had missing secondary door seals and went through the process to get ones on order. My dealer was utterly useless and I ended up going through Renault Australia, who in all fairness, came through. Then of course the dealer refused to fit them because they didnt know how
  5. Saying hello after some lurking

    Yeah, I noticed this weekend some demo 2016 220's going for low 30's driveaway. Crazy bargain.
  6. Potential Clio RS200 EDC Owner

    Love it more every time I drive it, in short. About 18months and 9k km in (don't drive much other than w/e) and no dramas. Gearbox is fine - it is not an auto and needs to be driven as you would a manual (albeit with an automated clutch) but otherwise it is great. And for $200, you can do three mods to enrich the experience too (res delete, sports filter and intake amplifier tube cap off) and you'll have a great time.
  7. Gone French (RS Clio 200 Cup)

    RS Monitor only came with the "Premium" versions - other obvious premium fitment items were 'leather' seats, PDC + reverse cam. Retrofitting RS Monitor .... not sure its easily possible.
  8. First time Clio owner.

    Not a performance mod, but definitely get a dead pedal and support the fella on this board who makes them. Search ebay for it.
  9. Selling Fiesta ST for a second hand Clio RS200 EDC??

    Sounds like it is growing on you Chuck
  10. New RS 220 Owner

    FYI, I get about 8.5-9l/100 between services, including joyous Sydney weekend traffic, a bit of highway driving and a few spirited drives.
  11. New RS 220 Owner

    Congrats mate. If you were in Sydney, I’d trade you my 17s! First stop post dealer you ought to make is to an exhaust shop to get the center resonator removed for 100 bucks. Best mod you won’t regret.
  12. Selling Fiesta ST for a second hand Clio RS200 EDC??

    I've done it - infinitely better sound (incl pops) but not obnoxiously so. It makes the car sound like it should have, all along. No power gains and no engine light/ codes etc.
  13. thinking about getting a clio rs20

    This is what I never understand. A weekend install of coilovers all of a sudden is better for handling then Renaultsport's engineers designing the original system over years for the OEM car. I'm betting 99/100 putting on coilovers looks better but worsens handling.

    Whether the cup is or isn't the one to get vs the sport is a personal preference I guess. It's no faster or slower in daily use. At some point during 2013, Renault offered 5 year warranties, so might want to check if whatever you find has some left.

    Renault changed their naming conventions - all you need to know is that Trophy and Premium are used interchangeably. Models went: Sport Cup 220 Sport and Cup were available in non-Trophy/non-Premium or Trophy/Premium. The 220 was only a Trophy. Trophy/Premium = Leather trim interior, RS Monitor, better sound system, reversing camera, PDC and climate control over the non version. Cup has marginally lower suspention (couple of mm) and a slightly stiffer set up + black 18" wheels.
