    How to spot a rs200 cup?

    Renault’s specs for the 200 were all over the place. I had a 2011 200 Cup Trophee, which supposedly had the following over the standard Cup: Renault Sport 200 Cup Trophée Pack - Renault Sport Recaro height adjustable front seats - Dark Grey Renault Sport Pack Design (Front edge / rear view mirrors / rear diffuser with twin chrome exhaust outlets) - Centre console with carbon fibre effect and satin chrome detail on dashboard - Electric and folding door mirrors - Special 17" Bebop alloy wheels - Renault Smart Card Key (handsfree)

    Now you’re confusing yourself. There is a Meg 3 phase 1 (250/265), and a phase 2 (the facelift - 265/275)

    The “phases” are tricky, but there’s a Clio 2 phase 1 and phase 2, a Clio 3 phase 1 and 2...and IDK about the Clio 4

    If the NSW plates indicate a recent rego, then this would be illegal

    Advice on buying Renault Megane R.S. 275 Cup Premiu

    Probably a mandatory option — all the ones I’ve seen advertised have had one.

    Cup Premium also has the non-opening moon roof.

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

    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!

    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]

    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.

    RS265 "Sport Limited Edition"

    This is the one to buy!
  13. I purchased a sticker when I paid to support the site — nothing received so far

    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
  15. Bastard to fit, by all accounts!
