    If I had the ED, I would still have a D series in it! Super fun no matter what kind of engine is inside one of those. That's exactly what I thought. Tires, pads, rotors and fluid. It would easily clock a faster time than the EP3 around Wakefield.

    I think I'm looking for a 250 Cup Trophee with the Recaros. It's just something about cars with Recaros that I'm drawn to. Your one does look ok though. Ha! I try to become involved in the car community wherever possible. It's fun to learn. EP3, I told myself I'd never sell. It's so good that it's boring (in the best way). It's practical, it's comfortable (enough), it has the looks (subjective), it's fast (for an NA) and most importantly, it's reliable. Currently, it's my daily driving track car! But for a Megane RS... I may have to give it up for. My brain says to sell the EP3 or even part it out. The DC2R will be a faster appreciator than my Civic. But my heart says to sell DC2R and keep the EP3. Most people can't imagine me primarily driving another car. The thing is... I don't. I like NA in my life, but never wanted my life to be dominated by it. In early October 2017, my brother and I were the owners of a Civic VTIR EK4 (B16A2), Integra Type R DC2 (B18C7) and Civic Type R EP3 (K20A). Sometimes, you can get too much of highly strung NA engines. Sold the EK4 and shortly bought my second NB8A. I think we're similar.

    Thanks! GBP to AUD is something I'm used to already. EP3 stuff is usually from the UK for the AUDM equivalent of parts. Generally cheaper than genuine Japanese parts. You have an EK or an EG in need of a K20? [emoji3] Sent from my Mi A1 using Tapatalk

    I absolutely understand what you mean! The steering in the RS is fast. Similar to my MX5s. The heel toe way better than DC2R. Similar to my EP3. Having torque is new to me. And in addition, the stableness of the Megane RS makes you feel almost invincible. The key word is confidence. In the EP3, it's hard to gain the confidence. Sent you a PM to discuss further. I want to know the worst of the worst when it comes to owning a Megane RS. I haven't even had a look at the cars for sale, but all I've learnt is that these seem to be the essential first mods: resonator delete intake tune

    Hi Oz RS! My name is Jacky. I reside in the northern beaches of Sydney. I like cars, but FWD is what I am most familiar with. I currently own a 05 Honda Civic Type R of 4 years, first Australian owner. I have also bought 2 x silver MX5 NB8As (yes, two. I missed the first one so much, I bought another. In the same body and colour!). Anyway, reason why I'm here. I drove a mate's Megane RS 250 Cup. (I didn't tell him I'm joining the forum, but he might find me on here - ha!) Went for a drive up to the Broke area via Putty Road and was amazed. I can understand why the Megane RS is so good! It was a like grown up, advanced version of my Civic. Yes, the screaming VTEC was missing, but it made new and different sounds! I've fed the experience back to my brother (owner of 98 Integra Type R) and I think we're willing to acquire one in the near future. Either we sell the Integra Type R or we purchase a third front wheel drive warrior! I would like to understand more about the RS world. If someone has ever switched from the Honda scene in to Renaults, please contact me! So to end it here, here's a few snaps from today's Putty drive. Because images always make a post better. Thanks, Jacky
