  1. Oh mate spewing! Did the 308 get a dud write off number like most of Canberra?
  2. sigh. I miss my 156 GTA
  3. Looking at your pics with the dents on the creases, it should be a write-off. colleague of mine had her written off due to hail damage on creases with paint peeling.
  4. That was @Haakons Giulietta. I wasn't silly enough to leave mine in a place where the golf balls could hit it.
  5. That could cost anywhere between 3 and 5k depending on the bravery of your mechanic. The 166 is a gorgeous machine though. My Giulietta QV needs a time and then it might be suitable for the OZRS forum
  6. Welcome! Sadly I also have the Italian disease but even more sadly have never owned a rwd Alfa. Have owned a Busso tho, so a good middle ground. I hope your intro doesn't throw the mob offside. I think your sense of humour will fit in very well here. Lend your hand to the bushfire thread for a night of frivolity
  7. Welcome Jayden! Inspirational story mate! Pretty great first car too. Mine was a Volvo 240 but I certainly didn’t overcome the struggles you have so far in your young life. Look forward to seeing you enjoy your new Clio and maybe even best our own racers.
  8. This thread needs more pics also, welcome!

    Clio Sport 182 Cup

    Hey fella! Glad to see you joined. When I get back to Canberra we’ll have to have a catch up. Maybe we can invite @act180to crawl over his meg4. Ive not seen it yet and being currently unemployed, got plenty of time to faff about.
  10. Luis at Alpine worked in Diepe as far as I believe. Sadly he has since retired and sold the business to a new owner, not one of his mechanics.
  11. yes. need the button that shows all the latest posts. I'm lazy and don't want to have to search/filter.
  12. Haha thanks! I actually think its the reservoir thats the problem. Will change it and see what happens. But all that aside, gorgeous car, drives very much like a meg225. Comfortable, economical and quite quick.
  13. I know the feeling. I got a Giulietta QV for that exact reason. S3s are super quick, but dull compared to a Megane. The GT220 is a nice car, but doesn't have the RS special stuff(perfohub, diff, brakes) but with a few more dollars and a broken RSM, you could transplant the front end of an RS into the GT. Id like to see that
  14. The ZF 8 speed is a brilliant gearbox and considered better than most double clutch units. I'd have it instead of the manual, but I've already let myself out of thos thread. I'll let myself out again
  15. M135is can be had for less than that these days... I'll let myself out
  16. Now I feel bad. But the 172 does have a spare tyre and better suspension that a standard 182...
  17. I had a copper here in Canberra pull me over and after i'd talked my way out of a ticket, he commented that i wasnt a hoon in a hoon car. I was in the Clio with bonnet pins, on coilovers, semislicks, ktec stealth exhaust and ITBs under to hood. yes officer, i'm not a hoon at all... Previously I've been pulled over in my obnoxiously loud Alfa 156 GTA and no questions were asked about the noise or ride height. Just what the engine was.
  18. Sadly I don't think there is a lot of knowledge on the 175 on OZRS due to them being a bit of a rarity. They're not often tuned but I recall when they came out, there were only a few seconds off the RSM225 at Wakefield. As a package there isn't anything that comes close really and with a remap, DPF delete and a few tasty mods, you'd have a very quick car that runs on an oily rag. I had considered it, but my wife and financial adviser suggested that a newer car would be a better option. Plus i want recaros. Good Luck.
  19. With an RStuner, you can awaken the engine. Its exactly the same as an RS265. Get suspension amd brakes from an RS and you're set...
  20. Soo i think the question is now, can you stick a F4RT in the Scenic with Cup suspension? A scenic manula can be had for $2k A F4RT shouldn't be that much and Im sure there is someone out there selling some suspension/hub parts...
  21. To be fair, he did only say from takeoff. Could be the first 10m where the scenic is the king. Both the WRX and M3 have very specific higher power bands and the Scenic would be designed for low down pulling power not hight end BHP...
