  1. Hey gang, After lurking and posting for the past few years, seriously looking for a Clio RS for the past 18 months, personal issues blocking purchases, and then even finding the ONE, missing out on it but then it came back around....I FINALLY got the one I wanted. It was love at first sight and lust at first drive! Very low km A&D, Akra system, KTR intake, KTR engine mounts, lowered, swaybars and strut brace, and it did have a harness bar and harnesses which have come out for the time being. MAP holder arriving, new boots tomorrow and then some window tint.

  3. Hello all, Having recently moved to the country I had to purchase a car, Ive owned Clio's previously in England with the mk1 1.2, mk1 1.8 and then a Titanium 182. I thoroughly enjoyed the 182 and really wanted another. I figured that I wont be doing many miles for work and so the car will be for mainly weekend fun drives and the odd commute. So the search began, I was surprised at the lack of European cars and especially the sheer lack of 182's there were. However this made finding one even more special as I could tell that the gentleman who I bought mine from was a fellow enthusiast and

  4. Hi All! Wesley here, long time lurker on OZRS from when I was trying to help my partner find a R27 F1 Team back in 2016 (ended up with a 6 speed 06 Cooper S instead) to now a proud owner of a Capsicum Red Clio 182 Trophy. I'm a Sydneysider now residing in the UK, hence the purchase :). I've been hooked on Renaults since driving a couple Megane RS, one at the nurburgring and one at the great ocean road. My mate, a big renault fanatic, has been planting the seed for a while from riding shotgun in his mint sunset yellow phase 1 172 to driving his recent 182. I've had a string of cars f

  5. 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,

  8. Hey guys, have been lucky enough to get the opportunity to purchase a very well maintained Cilo RS Gordini, build number #784, looking forward to owning this gorgeous car and I can't wait to get out for some drives in it!

  9. Let me be the boring voice of reason. Assuming you've not had it long, just enjoy it for a bit, grow into it and wait and see what you want to do. Gives you the chance to decide for yourself what's effective from what's fashionable. If its got average tyres on it now that'd be step one. Res delete is also valid if not done already for more noise without drone.

  10. Hey guys, After lurking here for a few months, I recently bought a 2011 RS250 Monaco GP (no. 205). Really enjoying it so far and it feels like a suitable upgrade in power and handling from my old Honda Integra Type S. The only mod on it at the moment are some Bilstein coilovers which definitely improve cornering and aesthetics. The previous owner also sold me some Rota Titan-Fs wrapped with Yokohama AD08Rs which I've been told are awesome on track. I'd like to get the resonator removed soon to hear a bit more action from the exhaust. I'm liking the OZRS community so far and hope

  11. Hey everyone, after months of searching I've finally bought myself a RS265. It was only up on carsales for a day before I went to see it, it was seriously immaculate so I bought it then and there. Has only 36k and had been serviced including the timing belt done by Renotech. My last 'fun' cars were a S15 Silvia and twin turbo Supra - wish I kept them as they'd be worth a bunch right now, but the Meg's been a blast to drive so far. Not sure what my plans are...it has an upgraded Focal amp + speaker system so that's taken care of, open to suggestions for other mods! Here's a few pics of my

  12. Thought I'd stick my nose in again and see who's about still I'm now in a 265 Cup, having moved on from an LY Clio IV 200 Cup, a 225 Ph1, and a BO 182 Cup. The family truck is a GT220, and I've an older toy in the garage too for those who are into vintage Renault.

  14. I just picked up a new RS300 Trophy, on Friday. I haven't driven it too far yet, given the circumstances. Still playing around withe all the settings in the R-Link -2 , still trying to find the RS Monitor software.... my most recent car were tuned VAG products, so its a bit of a change, looking forward to some track days, once its been run in.

  15. 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

  16. G'day Team, Bought a 275 cup premium, have never owned a Renault before or anything French so definitely some 'niggles' to get used to. My plan with the car is to use it just for weekend blasts, I have a boring daily for the commute to the office. Am planning on doing some light track days with it also (I'm in Melbourne so COVID permitting). Anything I should do to the car right now? I have just over the weekend updated the FANTASTIC...(ha) R-Link software via USB, but any other advice on small upgrades would be great! When I go for track days, plan will be just pads,

  18. 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

  19. I joined some time ago on the hunt for a Clio, and now that I got a Clio and fully registered in NSW, thought I might as well throw in a newbie post. Since six weeks old, I had been diagnosed with Haemophilia; a rare bleeding disorder that prevented my blood from proper clotting without treatment. Most of my life has been within the walls of the hospital and with many bruises and bleeds all throughout my body. There's so much that's happened during my first 14 years that its pretty much impossible to list it in this one post (You'll be able to read it all in the link at the bottom to our

  20. So I bought a renault, very new to these, any chance someone could tell me a thing or two about this model, what can and cannot be done, I think its a Trophy, has leather recaro seats and is a real dream to drive!

  21. Hey everyone, This thread is long overdue for an update on my Megane. It’s been two and a half years since I picked it up and I couldn’t be happier. Since the last update I have just been enjoying the car for what it’s meant for, lots of spirited drives and road trips. In June of 2019 I took the car up the coast to Byron Bay for the weekend which was great, the Recaro seats are surprisingly comfortable even on a 9 hour + drive. Then in June of this year I took it down to Melbourne (in between restrictions thankfully) and took the coastal route back up (ended up being a bit much in one day

  22. Hey everyone, I have recently added this little gem to my garage and I have to say that I couldn't be happier with it. I have wanted a Megane RS for over 8 years now and just hadnt been able to find the right car at the right time but after finding this lil nugget at a dealership I couldnt say no. Im wanting to keep it as stock as possible as its such a good car as it is but is there anything that you guys would recommend that I look at upgrading. Only thing it appears to have had done to it is the addition of an after market battery saver.

  23. Hi guys/ gals, Just wanted to introduce myself being new to this crazy French brand and my delight at just how good this car is! For clarity I’m the proud new owner of a 2014 RS265 CUP and am unbelievably surprised at just how solid and stable this car is. I know this has been asked a thousand times and have been reading plenty of posts about what to do and when etc but I will ask anyway..I will/ am in the process of gathering parts for some performance upgrades for this little beast and am keen to understand from you guys that have been tinkering with their cars whether there are so

  24. I have been on here for sometime while looking for a BO 182 cup. The Orange appealed to me after owning 2 70's orange Honda Civics. After having an Toyota 86 and a Focus RS I thought it was time to get back into a little hot hatch which lead me here. This group has been such a great resource when buying and now while I enjoy driving! I purchased this recently from Adrian at Race Spec and have loved being back in a small, light car again. It is mostly stock from what I can tell apart the exhaust and a tune which I don't mind. Looking forward to getting out and meeting a

  25. Hey folks, I'm Dan and I thought I'll introduce myself on the forums as I recently bought the below car from sdubs: Coming from an EP82 Starlet (back in the day) that torque steered like crazy, and an Evo 7 (still have it but the Megane is replacing this), the Megane is such a well balanced car that's amazingly fun to drive! It doesn't suffer from a traction issues or torque steer like my old FWD Starlet did, and the Megane will hopefully attract less police attention than the Evo. Hoping to get to meet some of you at a Sydney meet up some time. Cheers!

  26. Hey all, I am pretty damn excited! Just put deposit down on a Diamond Black 2014 Megane RS Cup Premium with only 25,000kms! Checked it out and test drove it yesterday and it was mint so a deal was done! I live on the GC but it is out at Toowoomba. Just gotta wait for banks to open so deal can be finalised and I will go get it! it is overdue for timing belt change due to not being done and supposed to be done every 4yrs ( Or 100,000kms) but hasn’t. Any recommendations for where to get it done in the GC? Or Bris? This is the realisation of a 3 year old dream... I have w

  27. Hi all, finally fulfilled the long urge to buy a Renault sport. Completed my apprenticeship with Renault and fell in love with these fun little cars. Couple years later and now working at Mercedes I’ve pulled the pin on a black 2001 Clio 172 phase 1 (#64). Bought it off a great guy who had planned to restore it but hadn’t been able to find the time. The overall condition of the body is rough to say the least and looks like it has enjoyed many years outside sun baking but on my short 8km drive home to where it now sits it drove like a dream. I plan on getting it to a much more acceptable condit

  29. Hi folks, thought I'd better drop an intro post in here. Been on the hunt for something intthe Megane III family for a while, and finally grabbed a 2010 RS250 Cup Trophee last week. Love the thing so far, and still getting used to a car that actually stops and goes round corners properly (coming from heavy old V8 powered RWD stuff that goes fast in a straight line and... that's it). Looks like I'll be doing some parts hunting shortly (dogbone mount, a/c compressor) but I got it for a decent price and the driveline seems sound (touch wood). Anyway, this is a great resource and

  30. Hi All, Just wanted to say hi as I've been a lurker for a while now. I've owned my RS 275 for three years now and the warranty is almost up, so I'm now starting to look at tuning. Been interesting reading all the topics you have all made, thanks for that.

  32. 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.

  33. Honestly, as @Gambit, @Moosey, @lachlan8, @63x1092, myself and many others on here can attest, just buy anything that pops up for sale and convince significant other that you are doing to sell on for profit. They eventually lose track with careful shuffling. And the perfect RS is any that you happen to be driving at the time. Adding @rob 240 and @walkie86 to the above list of tragics....
