  1. Here you are sir. Its my fiances. Its a good GT car. Automatic unfortunately. But its Invidia Exhaust sounds great and was a well needed upgrade over the super quiet stock exhaust. I would love to see how the manual feels. It was a good pickup for $14500 with 160000kms on it.

  2. My 2011 Porsche Cayman 2.9L Manual arrived in the mail. My 24th Car in 10 years of having a licence. I ended up using the dealers preferred transport team to try something different. They used "SMB Australia Car Transport". The car arrived with zero damage (only had some bug splatter, lots of dust and a had some muddy water residue on the bonnet - not oil). With SMB you do have to track the car via email or phone call for updates. Their live chat didn't give any responses. The car did arrive 2 days late. Apparently they put the wrong Porsche on the truck originally.

  3. Not very scientific I know, but I haven't noticed differences in IAT according to the 'RS Monitor' widget. Even when the pod filter was installed right up near the firewall, provided the car was moving it stayed at a couple of degrees above ambient. Has been the same with the stock airbox whether pulling air from next to the strut tower (no pipe) or behind the headlight (with pipe).

  4. I personally wouldn't be removing the cold air feed pipe that runs to the airbox, it's there to provide a feed of the outside temp air, removing it will likely see it sucking in hot air from the engine bay.

  6. Before changing the rear muffler I'd suggest you find a few kind local members to have a listen to what they have done, and go for a ride so you can hear it inside as well. Important that said test ride be a mix of WOT but also just cruising at daily speeds. It's very easy to become enamoured with the exhaust wide open but can mean cruising or commuting can be tiresome. The voice of experience.... My personal taste is that Meg's sound just awful without a muffler and even many I've heard with sports mufflers are just a bit average sounding but its a very personal thing. Rocking up to an e

  7. Pay a visit to Rob Bliss Performance Exhaust mate and get a sports muffler fitted to top off the centre res delete. Or a custom system if funds permit. Only other mod to get the most out of the RS chassis is the best tyres you can afford. Most are going with the Michelin PS4s.

  8. The best bang for bucks is some extreme performance tyres (Bridgestone RE71RS, Yokohama AD08R etc) and a high performance track day with an instructor to learn how to drive the car fast. You (or anyone else) can never realise the potential of your car on the road - way too dangerous !!!

  10. Hi I'm a new member here. Good to find a home to talk about Renault Sport stuff. I've been running my RS Clio 197 F1 for many years and had lots of fun with it. Recently I finally managed to cut loose in it out on a track. That's what I bought it for many years ago - so it's taken a while - but I got there in the end! Now all this Coranavirus stuff is settling down a bit here in WA, I'm hoping to become a bit of a regular at the Barbagallo track days and run the little RS as a bit of a track day car. So I am struggling to resist the temptation to try to do some performance mods to up the fun f

  11. Filters, intakes, cams, exhausts, tunes etc are frankly a total waste of time on an F4R, there are gains but they are not value for money, plus more likey to end in catastrophic engine failure. What's telling is that you could easily spend 15k on throttle bodies, rods, pistons, ecu and find 30-40 HP. On a Turbo Megane you can spend $700 on a tune for the same gains. Stock brakes are more than up to the task for sprints assuming good brake fluid. Good rubber for sure, if you want to go mad on spending coin an LSD is a way better use of funds than cracking open the motor. The value fro
