    Decision time...

    Are you looking at a super clean and more pricey example like the aforementioned 275 Trophy (still cheap for what it is)? Or are you after something a lot cheaper and less ‘precious’ since you’re going to mod anyway? Personally if I was building a track weapon of a Megane I’d probably want it less ‘nice’ since I’d be beating on it constantly. That said there’s a certain Trophy R owner on here with the best of both worlds.
  3. On our recent trip to Tasmania with the megane 280 RS we found ourselves in places that only had 95. I checked the manual and as per the fuel door you can use 95 and the car ran perfectly probably a bit less responsive and used more fuel but otherwise good.

    Yes this is the best advice. There’s loads of aftermarket stuff available for RS products, especially Clio II and Meg 3. So find the character of the car you want and modify accordingly. For example, turbo-ing or supercharging a Clio II is a well worn path if you need the extra horses.

    Meg 3 275 can be a bit stiff for daily use, but supposed to be the best track day Meg 3 with it's added benefits. Akra exhaust, suede Recaro's/steering wheel, stiffer suspension revision. Regardless any Meg 3 is special on track and the engine has been turbo'd by Renault since 2004 so a properly strong engine too for track day use. Test drive either a Clio or Meg 3 and you'll experience the RS pedigree. I went for the Meg 3 only because I wanted more POWAHHH, coming from a Civic Type R.

    Agree that the Meg is the way to go if you’re chasing laptimes. Also easy to mod for power, etc. The Clio is more about finesse. the C3 has a sublime chassis but lacks outright power vs the Meg 3. The NA engine is also difficult to economically extract more power from. Saying that, many of us here prefer it because of what it is.
  8. Owned nissan's for most, been trained by them too. Didn't want another be another pleb in a gti. So i choose different. Very happy. 

  9. Hi @trishy best colour for a Meg 4 right there 😎

    Meg 3...250-265-275 depending on budget A low km 275 Trophy should be $25-30k...great to drive on the road; fun and quick on the track

    You can't go wrong with any RS cars. It'll come down to what you prefer and budget. If absolute best lap times matter, go the Meg 3. For some NA goodness, a Clio 172/182 or 197/200. For paddles a Clio 4.

    Decision time...

    Hey guys, great info here, you guys are a wealth of knowledge! Im trying to decide on a suitable vehicle for my needs but may need some direction. I want something that is a suitable trackday weapon (mainly winton) and still being relitively usable on road (ie still standard interior). I had an evo which fitted into this category but decided to sell to fund another project. The bug has come back after 4 years and im thinking a rs250/265 cup or a clio as a good option and maybe even a little more exciting than the evo which was a tad boring it was so planted. Hoping to be somewhere around the 1.35 - 1.37 range at winton, but no idea if thats likely. Im happy to run a good semi like a hankook z221 or a yok ao50, love to mod for laptime so engine, brakes, suspension, alignment all a major part of the fun for me and not a drama as i have a daily to cover this. Am i on the right track with this, any help or advice you can offer would be greatly welcomed, Cheers John

  15. @Marsch I knew of the black cars but maybe not the other colours. Australia only received blue then white. I seem to recall a couple of cars having had the stripes replaced under warranty here, and the part cost was over $1K 🥴
  16. Just make sure they've the holograms and aren't only white stripes. Just to let you know. My source is currently on vacation. So I won't get an answer from him for about the next two weeks. Tell me if you're sourcing from somewhere else in the meantime, please.
  17. Thanks heaps fella. Site looks great!
  18. Try http://www.jestercreation.fr/?fbclid=IwAR3LYjcznxqdi_zX2GGGBYh9I_wotOxuIaaVpi8A_BhC8KWLFbrI9N-MiQc He has a FB page. If you use Google Chrome, you can translate the website. Good to deal with
  19. If there is any OEM white stripes kicking around in a warehouse somewhere I would be keen on some
  20. Yeah, you could place the triangle elsewhere and put a white outline around it to avoid it being on the decal.
  21. I'd slap the marshall if he'd dare to put the sticker directly on the stripe. That aside the ones on the roof also look a bit knackered. I've contacted one of my sources. Lets see if he can organise a set. If not I'm going to ask the Frenchies. I'm wondering if you're aware that they were also available in Deep Black, Ultra Red and Nimbus Grey? The latter two are very, very rare and could only be ordered in France I was told.
  22. Welcome mate! Gordini s are one of my fave Clios, blue or white, doesn’t matter to me. Both look 👍
  23. Yeah that break in the bonnet strips is a blue triangle to show where the battery is for Motorsport. The Marshall puts them on every autokhana. the decals could use a new set but tried Australia dealers and ktec Uk, Reno parts direct Uk and no oem stickers to be found anywhere?
