  1. Sorry Dave., you’re right. His belts are due anyway. My 225 Cup is on its 3rd set of belts, but still hasn’t reached 100,000km. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Timing belts are 60,000km or 4 years, whichever comes first. Looks like yours is due now. Vibration sounds like it is a balance issue, and I would suspect the Chinese? brand front tyres. Michelin PS4 are recommended by many (including me). Try Sport mode, it may satisfy your desire for increased exhaust note. As for a local (non-dealer) service specialist, especially for timing belts, I have had experience with Manta at Richmond. They are very good, but may be pricey. Many have used Eurogarage, but I visited them and there were over-run with crappy non-runners outside which concerned me about parking scratches etc. The timing belts on my Trophy-R are due, so I'm investigating all options. I've had the same issue with intermittent start/stop but didn't worry too much about it.
  3. I think Matt205 still has some for sale. See the For Sale thread.
  4. My Cup racer had a big hit in the rear quarter (see my ride thread). I had a paintless dent guy do the majority without drama and then a crash repairer/painter do the rest by conventional methods. The end result was pretty good (but not showroom) due to prior race biff and barge damage, but it was way cheaper than a rear quarter panel replacement. (I bet any money that Renault Australia would not have a panel in Australia). That scrape looks easy peasie. $500 is my estimate.
  5. Advo, I can oblige with a ride through the hills (or similar). Send me a PM to arrange.
  6. Just to confirm: No issue when using Chrome.
  7. Daniel, I'm using Explorer most of the time, but I can use Chrome as well, as it is the preferred browser for Uni.
  8. Daniel, In your reply to my post, your profile took up 3/4 of the width of the page (on my PC). That wasn't the case prior to the skin update. The actual message was limited to 50 characters width. See screen dump attached.
  9. The poster's profile/signature is not a fixed width. One with a lot of content (like mine) takes up the majority of the page width, leaving only a narrow band for the actual post.
  10. Does it have the storage bin in the foot wells? Look under the mats.
  11. There's a recent video on the RCCA facebook site which explains the function of the push button on the sunroof. It's a stop/start button for when you want it only partially open.
  12. Try steve@nisswreck.com.au They are now stocking Renault, including RS models.
