  1. First time Renault owner

    As the owner of a Trophy-R, I have no idea what you mean by this head and heart mumbo-jumbo!
  2. First time Renault owner

    And that’s what leads us back to my comment — “the dark side”. Without a LSD, you’ll always feel the Clio III is just “missing something” — especially on a track. But adding a LSD is a minimum $4k investment...on a $10-15k car, ie, proportionately large. Whereas you can spend that $15k and a bit...and get, not just the LSD, but more power and torque. Ah, this life — it’s a slippery, slippery slope! Ultimately, if all the OP wants is a DD with the honesty that ‘daily’ entails, then IMO the stock Clio III will be a great car.

    Welcome...and having had what you have, I can tell you the answer: that‘ s why you buy a Megane III!
  4. Buying Used: 2015 Clio RS 200 Sport

    That’s all history and no longer relevant. In the future, it seems we’ll all be i30N or A.nother, here...given Renault Australia sales and marketing management is seeking to prove it is, actually, dumber than a box of hammers! [emoji6][emoji23]
  5. Buying Used: 2015 Clio RS 200 Sport

    But that’s exactly the point: Australians seem(ed) to buy RS models as much higher proportion of all Renault sales than other countries. It surprises me each time I travel to Europe how few RS models I see, whereas it’s a daily occurrence here.
  6. RS265 "Sport Limited Edition"

    This is the one to buy!
  7. I purchased a sticker when I paid to support the site — nothing received so far
  8. What Should I buy RS 265 or 275 ???

    Settle down, @chuck...the pole position recaros are great...it’s just the getting in and getting out that’s challenging, and they’re an object of bliss, given the noise and ride of the Trophy-R
  9. Bastard to fit, by all accounts!
  10. Saying hello after some lurking

    There’s a few of those around. If it was me, I’d lowball the dealer. If they can’t prep a car to support their price, then they should suffer the consequences. And it would soon look pretty good with a little TLC. As a price guide, a number of these were sitting in various Melb dealers at under $30k, plus govt charges. I’d be cheeky enough to offer
  11. Is RS megane allowed for P plates

    No. Provided the not at fault driver is insured, the insurance pays. If not insured, both drivers learn a lesson.
  12. Is RS megane allowed for P plates

    This actually contains the most relevant point: if you are driving a vehicle for which you are not licensed to drive, you are uninsured. Yes, the car might be insured under another’s name (parents, brother...); yes, they may have even stumped up a premium to cover “younger” drivers; but it is a simple matter of fact whether the driver at the time of the accident is licensed to drive that vehicle. If you aren’t, the insurance company will tell you to take a running poke at a rolling donut, and you’ll be on your own. As we all know, it is now just so easy to cause $10k+ worth of damage in an accident; if there’s another car involved and it’s your fault, they (through the other driver’s insurance company) will pursue you relentlessly. Do you really want to take that risk?
  13. Rs 265 gear knob

    My experience is, if you don't hit yourself in the face when it comes off....you're not doing it right

    I doffs me ‘at to you, sir!
  15. Hi all! Some advice for a potential 197 owner

    Where are you located? If Sydney, get Renotech to inspect it. G/box should be fine with that mileage, but you should allow for new belts, water pump — major (time-based) service items.
