  5. We ended up getting 55k out of the RE003s on the GT220...probably another 10k until the markers but they were borderline dangerous in the wet so got them changed.
  6. Good to know! They came with the car so I’ll run them out and then go back to PS4S.
  7. Having just gone from the Hankooks to the RE003s, they're similar in the dry but night and day in the wet. The RE003's are like driving on ice in the wet, at any speed. They're hard as nails though so likely I'll have to put up with them for many years now. The Hankooks are pretty good but wear very quickly. Only 10k with 2 track days out of the set on my 265 and 20k out of my wifes daily driver GT220.
  8. Welcome! Most questions have been answered but: Michelin PS4 or 4S if you have 19s. Brilliant. RE003 and Hankook Evo are good too and a bit cheaper. You can go up to 245, which are sometimes cheaper and not lose any handling. The stop/start won’t work til the engine is up to temp. I’ve had my car serviced at Southern Vales Renault and they’re excellent. I’ve used MN Renault years ago and they were good too. If you want a bit more exhaust noise, hit the R.S. button, throttle map set to Sport or Extreme. If you want even more noise, have the centre resonator removed. Mine makes a brilliant noise with these mods. It now has a stage 1 tune and sounds even better - lots of pops and overrun bangs. And goes like stink. See you in the hills!

  10. You're in the clear mate. Doesn't appear to ever be rented in Hertz system australia wide 👍

    It's gloss white, not sure what it's actually called. lol Not many of them around, most of the white ones are matt white, only done 22000km, 2017 model. Pretty happy cheers.

    Nice turnaround on what would probably be a bit of a disapointing weekend mate. Well done.

    Hi all, Just about to pick up my first Renault Sport car, thought i'd say hi. Came down to Melbourne for the Grand Prix & that didn't work out well so bought myself a Clio RS220 Trophy, picking it up on Thursday so a bit excited.
  18. Do you know what the rego of the vehicle was before you took it from Melbourne? I could check on Hertz system for you.
  19. Hi All, thanks for replies/thoughts. My research is timing belt required after 100k and plugs coolant etc @ 60k as noted above. Signed up for the RenaultSportSA FB page - thanks Will check the Android auto link. I like the sound of it. As for the brightness of the info panel the wheel mentioned only changes the brightness at night when lights come on.
  20. All good mate. I read your post and had a panic attack myself 😂
  21. Sorry Dave., you’re right. His belts are due anyway. My 225 Cup is on its 3rd set of belts, but still hasn’t reached 100,000km. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. This is incorrect. Timing belt is due every 100,000km, not 60. the 60k service is coolant, brake fluid and spark plugs.
  23. It won't effect warranty, it's a plug in, change setting, reboot R-Link, unplug, job done. There's no physical modification done to the car. I dare say that the dealer could.do this change, not sure what they'd charge though.
  24. Yep that's no problem, however, I still have a year left of warranty so unless the modded cable is plug and play I might have to wait.
  25. In the how to as well, if you're handy with a soldering iron it's pretty simple.
  26. Great any chance you can point me in the right direction for gear that has worked for you.
  27. It seems that's it's a bit of an unofficial feature, not listed in any updates, but with ddt4all software (free) and a modded obd cable it can be enabled, frankly it transforms R-Link into a much more useful platform. So much so that I retro fitted an R-Link into my 250. There's a "how to" in the ICE section.
  28. Also about the auto stop. I think it is related to what the engine is doing. I notice first thing in the morning it won't auto stop. I think because it isn't at operating temperature. Also running the A/C affects when it start / stops as well. Some sort of fuzzy logic that probably determines the load on the car at the time and the ability to restart if needed.
