    Brembo brakes query

    I can confirm they are indeed different. The later model megane brembos have larger pistons than the earlier models. They have the exact same bolt spacing so can be mounted interchangeably, however the later models are slightly wider and thus you will need more wheel offset to avoid wheel contact to inner rim.
  2. I unfortunately have first hand experience using one and works a treat ! To me it's more a neutral clean soap smell with no fragrance. When you open the windows and let it air out the smell complete disappears.
  3. No that i'd know but most people who upgrade the Ohlins seem to go for the AST's and they rave about them, cheaper than a brand new set of Ohlins from Renault too.

    Damn you i was so tempted by that car, you scored a bargain deal on both counts, lucky you !
  5. An amazing story and a real testament to your character and perseverance in life, nothing but kudos to what you have been through and what you'll continue to achieve. Also great choice of first car, no doubt you'll enjoy every minute of it.
  6. These are a performance bargain right now pic them up for next to nothing relatively to other competitors.
  7. Just buy it before it’s too late

    Coming home...

    Interested to hear your opinions/review of all three as a comparison piece? What are they like to live with from meg 3, to golf r to meg 4, which is the better handling, which has the better stick shift, how is the space between golf r and meg 4 etc? Meg 3 or Meg 4 cup which suspension setup do you prefer?
  10. Start a charity fundraiser drive day? how does the car drive ?
  11. Hi Gambit,

    Noticed that you're online and a Clio 2 owner like me.

    My Clio 2  has a faulty camshaft dephaser solenoid valve. Oil is bleeding up through the sensor socket. The oil makes it over to the headers where it's a fire risk and a headache for me as the fumes get into the cabin.

    I'm hoping you or somebody else out there has a spare in good condition?

      Hi Jim, 

      I had a spare VCT solenoid alas no longer :(


      you will need this:



      Rocker cam sensor seal o-ring Part # 7700106385

      Hope that helps !

      But you will also need a new solenoid.

    Hello! Clio 2 PH1

    I have been pulling apart a Clio II engine loom and all I can say is that the wiring, terminals and plug connectors are all of very low quality combined with the fact the looms are over 15years old there are going to be issues associated with earthing to ground from many contact points. Check all your grounds and give them a good clean would be a start.
