    It was good! Not as many MCM references as I thought there would be but as an independent restaurant that’s good.

    It's update time! I'm pleased to report there isn't much to report! The car has been seriously good at the weekender role and has picked up a bit more of a daily role now that I don't have a work car anymore (not that I use it to commute). I've done way more 'kays' in it than I thought I would (8,000) since March which isn't bad for a something that is driven almost exclusively on weekends! But I have no complaints or reports to talk about which is great. It's just ticked over 60,000 in the last week and is scheduled to go to Reno Tech for the next service which I believe is a bit more major at this point. Unfortunately I'm not aware of the timing belt history so I'm going to get it done out of precaution and if it's been done recently I don't want to know! Other things on the cards are going to be new tyres all round. I'm going to go for some Michelin PS4S, even though I was originally thinking some Cup 2's but I feel like they may be a bit overkill and it would be good to save some money at the same time too. I also bought a Maxton Design spoiler lip in the last few weeks which I think adds nicely to the rear and was super easy to install. I think I'll get a Rhino Lip for it too in the next few months when I get some time. Any suggestions on which "universal" one to get? Please excuse/enjoy some spam from the last few months of photos.

    Certainly doesn't look like everyone is a fan of the debadge! But that's okay, everyone has different tastes. My theory behind it was obviously for a clean look, and for those who know what they're looking at don't need an RS badge to tell them it's an RS. Thanks again for all the suggestions. I'm taking it on a big trip down to the Snowy Mountains in a couple of weeks so I'll really get to know the car well then. Have a pretty exciting route planned! I'll post some pictures from the drive when I'm back home.

    Thought I'd give an update on how the RS is going now that I am just over a month in. I had the mid silencer removed which I'm really happy with the result. It is a lot quieter than I thought it was going to be (almost stock level) but when in sport mode and at the right revs it will produce the best crack this side of a 675 LT, which is so awesome! As well as that, I decided to take off the 'Megane' and 'RS' badges for a really clean look on the rear, and I'm really happy with the results. Let me know what you think though - I guess the good thing is if I ever change my mind I can just put them back on. I took the car for a great drive, completely impromptu, up to the Hunter Valley through the Old Pacific Highway and Peats Ridge Road. It was so good getting it out on the fast flowing bits through there, going through there at the speed limit of 100KPH is done at absolute ease in the RS. Only a couple of gripes so far; one is the 'braking system fault' warning will come up if I am on the brakes for more than about 4-5 seconds, but then it goes away straight away. Anyone else experienced this? And as well as that, every now and then when going above 3000 RPM a 'check injection system' warning comes up too. I've read that this could be a turbo pressure sensor but the symptoms synonymous with that aren't what I have (my car feels completely normal) - and the light goes off straight away as well so I'm a bit confused. Let me know what you think. Overall I couldn't be happier, it's everything I hoped for and more. I'll attach some pictures of it so far!

    I'm going to get the mid silencer removed some time this week so I'm looking forward to hearing how it sounds! I put my number plates on it so it really feels like mine now. Loving it so far! Thanks for all your suggestions.

    Thanks everyone for their comments! The central resonator delete is a really good idea I hadn't considered yet. I might look into that first as it looks like it has worked for a few people looking at other threads. Some great ideas for the wheels too, I'll see how they look after a bit of time and make up my mind then. Anything else I should know about the Megane I might not already know?

    Hey everyone, Just wanted to say a friendly hello and introduce myself. I just bought my first Renault - one I've wanted for years. It's a 2011 250 Cup Trophee in silver with black interior. I've only driven it a small amount but am already in awe of it! I'm thinking of a few little things to change but nothing drastic as it is already so good. What would be a good suggestion for possible exhaust upgrades. Would a cat-back system be the best or can you just get away with a downpipe? If so for either answer, what are my best options? I'm also thinking of painting the silver parts of the wheels (not a massive fan of two tone wheels) but I was wondering if anyone else has done this and what their thoughts were before and after. Looking forward to getting some feedback and contributing to other conversations!
