    Wanting an R26

    Paul V runs AP Automotive and is incredibly highly regarded for anything French. Other options include Collier's in Parramatta, should Hornsby be too far for your needs. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Yep, he is meticulous. Hand writes a five page invoice at the end. Quality work.

    Wanting an R26

    The 2 for sale at the moment are black, Yet to see a yellow one like yours for sale.
  10. G'day everyone, As the name suggests, after making my way through a 306 GTi 6 and Clio 172 Phase 2 I finally bought my teenage dream car: a silver 350Z. As much as I've enjoyed owning the Zed I've decided I'm definitely more of a hot hatch man: revving out the Clio was a joy the big GT can't match. I'm therefore looking to get back into the French game either with a NA Clio 200 or a Meg 250/265 Cup Trophee. Unfortunately due to plummeting resale value on the Zed my budget is around $16k. If anyone has a well cared for car they're looking to pass on, or is interested in swapping out for something a little more Japanese, let me know! Chris

    Wanting an R26

    A few around in Melbourne still so I’m sure you’ll find one. I bought mine with 70k and it’s just ticked over 100k with only a sensor playing up in that time so depending on condition and km’s you should be fine. I’d guess that any issue with a 225 (more of them on the road) could happen but overall I’ve been super impressed with the car Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hi everyone I am after an R26 can any existing or former owners tell me what to look out for when buying one. Where in Sydney would you recommend servicing ? How much is the cam belt change ? Spare parts any local suppliers or just ebay etc. Thanks Nick

  15. Awesome, that's good news. Thanks for all your help!
  16. If I did get it I'd be asking Renotech to install it. But if it's many hours of labour, the total cost makes it less appealing 🤔 I'm sure it would be sweet though...
  17. Great kit but a PITA to fit ! the car should have had this from factory. you have to be very patient to tap the pin in.
  18. Normal, but it should feel much better once everything is warmed up - although at least 15 minutes of driving until it will slot in perfectly smooth. Changing higher in the rev range (~3k RPM) also slots in smoother. I've never really considered a short-shifter kit but after reading that link above it's mighty tempting...
  19. Sounds like a normal thing then for the rs.I think In due course I will try the short shifter , and let you guys know if improved .
  20. Hey Tom. Welcome aboard. Great pic.
  21. Welcome mate, enjoy your stay 👍🏽
  22. Looking at the rear calipers they have had some grinding but, not that much. I can put my finger between the caliper and spokes of the wheel, so there seems like that there is heaps of clearance. Mark
  23. Hey mate Welcome aboard. I just got my 1st Renault a few weeks back as well. Awesome little cars. Saw one today in black with black rims looked real good.
  24. Did you take any photos of this install as you went?
  25. I am too but some options in Melbourne that won't break the bank!!!
  26. Hi Mark, Thanks for clarifying. All makes sense now, which now jim60ts comment also makes sense now :). Are you able to see how much clearance there is between the wheel and your rear caliper by any chance? or confirm if the caliper has been grinded away? Walkie86, Thanks, yeah given that mark says he may have had his calipers grinded that is the the only unknown. I'll have to see if there is a wheel local to me to test fit. I figure the design of the spokes on the wheel look to be pretty flat so i was more concerned with guard clearance. Thanks everyone for your help so far.
