  1. New to the renault game. Got my hands on a 2013 renault megane rs 265 trophy+ She is coming home tomorrow. The Kms are a little on the high side but it's a one owner car with full renault log book history. Taking it for a test drive last week was just a little taste of how awesome this car is going to be.

  3. If I’m not mistaken the 8:08 has something that you can’t retrofit to the 275 and that’s the bi-xenon headlights. The 8:08 also has all the other fruit including leather Recaros but misses out on the Akra exhaust and Turinis. It would be my pick especially if it’s LY.

  4. Hi guys, My names Ben and I picked up my first ever hot hatch, first time euro car owner aswell. This forum was highly recommended on Facebook. 👍 I'm based on the Gold Coast and have a 2008 Clio RS197 in Toro Red. 2 owner car with 160ks and full log book servicing from renault. Basically stock only running kW V1 Coilovers. Looking to do some more to it over the next 12 months including a half cage. Will be using the car for Sunday fun drives and time attack In 2020. Looking to get back into hill climbs and motorkhanas with aswell. Look forward to meeti

  5. That's not an 8:08. Just has the wheels! Looks like a base 265 Trophy: - no xenons - no leather interior (has the 265 part-leather Recaros) - no stickers (guess they could've been removed) - looks to be Glacier White (8:08s were Pearl White) - no plaque at the base of the dash under the Start button

  7. Welcome! Best bang for driving fun you'll find. Have had mine for 7/8 years and still love driving it. Also makes me a better driver because I always want to get it right. Advise you to do track days and learn to drive it properly, in a safe environment, if you don't do them already. Also some track day driver tuition, if you haven't done it already. That also lets you resist the urge of using it's performance on public roads. Otherwise, the red and blue light brigade will enjoy handing out the fines. Apart from the fact you need to be considerate of oth

  8. Always learning, weird it has the wheels which would be rather rare (unless just painted).

  9. If you appreciate these cars and their dynamic virtues, you'll be a happy customer whatever you choose. I'd say no discernible difference in dynamics (wheel weight being the only point of difference) We plumped for 275 Trophy and boy are we a happy household here - as already mentioned by other posters, differences are so minimal as to be the domain of trainspotters. The bi-xenons would be appealing, but a bulb change to LED on CP is an easy improvement. I think the Akra exhaust, Turinis and Alcantara are all delicious, obligatoire! Good buying with 265s, I'd prolly lean CP - or wai

  10. Nothing wrong with pearl white, whilst I appreciate Liquid Yellow I personally couldn't own it. Akra is a nice bonus but if you get lucky you can maybe find one and add later. As for Alcantara, honestly it's no harder to maintain than leather or cloth, it goes bad cause people never clean it, same for the steering wheels. It's super easy to clean with warm water and a small amount of detergent and a microfiber cloth.

  11. Thanks all. Am leaning towards the 8:08. I know this is controversial but pearl white is also my pick. Love the look of the alcantara in the cup premium but thinking the leather recaros easier to maintain. Also the bi-xenons are a big plus.

  13. Nice mate, looks real clean and I'm envious of your spoiler kit. Hope to see you around sometime, I'm relatively new 197 owner also - southside Brisbane. Haven't been able to get to many events/meetings due to working but I'm keen to get out there. These things are just SO much bloody fun to drive hey.

  15. If you’re after “reliable” all you need is pads, fluid and tyres. Probably camber bolts to keep tyre wear in check. Well that’s the case for my Clio 182 anyway Otherwise it just works

  16. Welcome Josh, I've got a Clio 2 and I can say that it is great as a daily/city car but can easily eat long distance drives and plenty use theirs as an occasional track car too. If you are curious about practicality, we managed to put 4 blokes + camping gear + 2 mountain bikes on the roof for a camping trip. It's also technically a 5 seater (the person you like the least will probably be squeezed in the middle of the back seat).

  17. Thanks for the welcome (back) guys. NZ has some great roads, like Tasmania. We have some awesome un-sealed roads also with lots of camber. My wife and I have driven from top to bottom over the last 12 months or so, it has been great to explore New Zealand vs going over sea's where a holiday can sometimes be more economical. Haven't come across any more Mustangs thanks Dooook, the guy retired soon after that event thankfully.. After fitting the Mk3RS motor and cranking up the boost I can say I would have hit him a lot faster with that set up. Now that i'll be a noob on grav
