  1. HI all, New to the world of renault, just picked up a 2014 275 Trophy, liquid yellow and great condition. This is a 2nd car to compliment my '94 range rover classic, which is more practical for the kids but not always reliable, now I have the RS which is less practical but pretty reliable, to take up the slack and stop me getting in trouble with the boss for having to take her car! I live in Samford, Brisbane so have Mt Nebo / Mt Glorious on my door step so can enjoy the handling regularly. Test drove a mk6 Golf R and the trophy was far more engaging. I used to own a 135i,

  2. Got my new toy booked for pickup tomorrow and should be in my driveway by the afternoon when I get home from work. Bought a 2016 RS Cup Premium and to say I am looking forward to getting in that seat is an understatement. I'm sure it's going to surprise the mrs, even though she has seen pictures of it. We test drove a cup edition on the weekend, but it was white and she loved the look of it. She is not a fan of black cars and this one is black, so there is bound to be some apprehension. Apart from the colour which she knows about, she has no idea quite what sort of car it is (that is

  6. Hi ozRSers, We have now completed the updates on our dark theme and have forced the change to all members. Please use this thread to report any issues you may find with the skin. Tapatalk is still WIP and disabled for the time being. For those who wish to remain on the light theme, there should be a drop down box 'Theme' at the very bottom of the page. Feel free to select 'Default'. Unfortunately, we have no intention of releasing a customised light theme.

  9. Hi Tia - can you shed some more light (perhaps photos etc) of what you thought you were getting and what you got? A Cup Premium and a Cup Trophy are essentially the same thing. There was a name change circa-2015. The Cup part of the name refers to the chassis, whilst the Premium/Trophy name refers to the spec (interior etc). From 2014 there were 4 options in the Clio: - Sport (base model) - Cup (base model with black 18s and Cup suspension) - Sport Trophy (top spec model with Sport chassis) - Cup Trophy (top spec model with Cup suspension) Later on there was a 220 Trophy w

  12. 2 things I like about this tread. 1st, somebody out of nowhere decides to makes a post for advice on a commercial vehicle, 2nd but more so, that he got quick responses from ppl offering suggestions?!? Think some ppl on this forum could work at the Renault technical advice call centre. Good work peeps.

  14. Hey again, I picked up my 2015 Megane RS 265 Cup last weekend. Basics: Pearl White 2016 Complied, Leather heated seats. 67000kms. Plans: currently enjoying driving it whilst I look into the following to get it how I want it (or at least how I think I want it😞 Dump pipe Cold air intake Custom Tune Reverse camera Android auto/apple carplay integration. Playing with an obd2 HUD. Then trying to figure out some customisations in the interior to enable me to put a travel mug/water bottle in a handy location! Cheers, Paul.

  15. Exactly - why do developers always feel they have to change something that works and the end-users are happy with?? This new site is very ordinary !!!

  18. The only lingering compliant I have is the cup holders in the EDC version - they will just hold a can once you're past 2/3's through drinking it. Apart from that no issues, the ride is firm at low speed - but its not enough to make me wish I had of bought the softer version. I'm further very optimistic on the long term wear of the alcantara upholstery. Mine still looks like new, feels like new, and is much easier to clean than leather. In comparison my wife got a new X4M four months ago, and I can already see the creases starting in the side bolsters of the drivers seat - even though I'm g

  19. Hi mate. I probably would’ve considered the Cup with the diff, but I needed an auto for the wife and at the time that combo wasn’t available. The suspension tune on these cars is amazing. It’s hard to believe it rides so well on 19s. I have read that the French engineers are surprised we buy Cup cars for the road - and in previous tests the Sport was preferred to the Cup. Ive spanked our Sport pretty hard and it’s bloody good - BUT - the original S001s suck big time. They ruin the car. Once I changed to Michelin PS4S, the car was so much better! No more axle tramp or wheel spin.

  20. This happened to me this week too even though I hardly use the door handles. I had the bottom bit come loose and the plastic break away on the handle where two bolts midway up are mounted to the inner door. I was lucky I didn’t break the door card itself. I decided I was redoing every bolt on the door and then the passanger door as a preventative measure before it broke. it came out well at the end of the day and is much stronger now. 5m bolts and washers everywhere but the bottom and the bottom 8m bolt I took a lot of pictures to help others but didn’t realise

  21. Had to run outside and make sure mine was still in the drive! Looks the same from that angle, mines a mere 250 though.....same wheels and an Akra, from there we diverge! Nice one!

  23. One or two VERY minor things I've noticed – read threads are yellow, just like unread ones. I'm sure they used to be grey. Def a good UX change to make. there's no fill behind the logo any more. Gets a bit lost sometimes. Looks a bit awkward to solve without eg a gradient over the whole .focus-header block or curated images Also have to say the yellow is a bit intense, I think it was a few shades warmer before! All round an awesome job getting the theme back up. Thanks.

  24. You guys do realise this is a temporary change because the dark theme is broken with the new update of the forum software? Software is updated for many reasons.. things like the security of both users accounts and the invaluable knowledge found in this forum! Give the guys running the joint a break. I'm sure they know and are on it.

  25. Hi all - i have forced all users to go back to the default skin, and disabled Tapatalk, and PMs are working again. This is all such a hassle - clearly the skin and the forum software is not quite there. Hopefully out IT lead can get the skin rebuilt today, and I will hear back from Tapatalk about the broken plugin.

  27. I've got one in white - I like it - the only real quibbles I have with it is the creaky noises which I swear are from the sunroof seals and the lack of confidence in the cupholders. If I had my time again, I would avoid the sunroof option - though I've got some Honda silicon grease coming from the US which I'm hoping is going to solve those noises. Notwithstanding, I'm not convinced that Renault has got the sunroof implementation quite right (at least on my car). I really like the seating position, alcantara on the seats, the sound system and despite the criticisms the infotainment sys

  28. No problem, if you can’t get a test drive there’s a few forum members in Queensland who might take you for a ride. I’d be happy to but Unfortunately I’m a long way from Brisbane.

  30. IPB (this forum software) advises us that the new version 4.5 is not compatible with Tapatalk, even though Tapatalk has new software which was installed a few days ago and caused lots of problems. For now, sadly we have disabled Tapatalk, and will look into this over the weekend. Theme issues caused by the forum update and custom skin will be resolved over the weekend. For now, to ensure that it works for all browsers and devices, I have deleted all custom skins and forced all users to use the default theme. Thanks for your patience!

  31. I've actually had a few of the chassis including the Lexus IS200 (2004 - 2012) and IS300. The Altezza was special, felt like a stripped out version of the Lexus equivalent with sharpened handling and a high revving 4 cylinder (7800rpm) with variable valve timing on inlet and exhaust. It would just want to rev and go through the gears, though not much torque down low so you would just need to rev it like a Honda. In comparison the Clio feels like it has more low down torque but the 300kg or so advantage probably makes a difference. I had it dynoed at 115kw at the wheels with a factory tune with

  32. Morning Renault Enthusiasts, I may or may not have accidentally purchased myself a Clio 172. It looked alright, drove well for the condition its in and needs some work. Right up my alley. This is my first Renault, I've looked at Megane 225's and Clio's before but never bought one until recent. Well yesterday actually. I have a passion for Alfa Romeo's and own a few of those, but was always interested in other lightweight nimble front wheel drive cars. Being a mechanic by trade I can do all the work myself, so that part will be easy to sort out. I'm yet to even look over the Clio to
