  1. I haven't heard positive things about any reno dealers to be honest. Didn't someone's clio 4 get rooted by Waverley? The other option is Auto Paris in box Hill.
  2. I will say, there is an anomaly in all of this. And that is, that Renault tried to claim the power bump from 265 to 275 was partly due to the Akra exhaust as fitted to the 275 trophy/cup premium. Then they released a 275 Cup with the standard exhaust, which kinda debunks that theory.
  3. The cup s was a uk market only model. Basically a blank slate to which you could option Recaros, akra exhaust and ohlins dampers according to budget and needs. Our 275 Cup was available just for 2016, was specified the same as the 265 cup from 2014-15. 18 inch tibors, cloth renault sport seats, standard exhaust. So no you don't have an akrapovic Titanium exhaust, but a resonator delete will provide pops if need be.
  4. Not a Cup unfortunately though,it's a Sport Limited Edition - no LSD and softer suspension tune.
  5. Nice. The Trophy R gets all the attention but I reckon the standard 275 trophy/cup pre is the sweet spot of all Megane IIIs. Enjoy.
  6. Yeah, the last batch of the 159 TBi were a canceled South African order by all accounts. The problem with both the 159 and brera were that the body was writing cheques none of the drive lines could cash. 2.2 jts was an unreliable dog of a vauxhall engine 1.9 jtd was just a standard derv 2.4 jtd was powerful and 400nm torque but not a very 'alfa' powerplant, rattly as the day is long and used a lot of fuel for a diesel 3.2 jts was a recycled Holden block with alfa heads, not terrible but not a patch on the old busso and combined with the q4 AWD was uber thirsty 1
  7. You're clearly not accustomed to the incompetence of the FCA dealer network.
  8. That's why I always have my other half in a Honda so our family can reliably get around in the case of a European malfunction
  9. The G is better in a lot of ways, but there still seem to be occasional horrors - @Haakon has had one of those. As a lifelong Alfisti, and having driven a fair few - it mostly seems like just very niggly things - a noise you cant find here, an unexplained CEL there, trim coming off etc etc rather than VW style DSG implosions or any issues with engine internals. Still, this is the kind of thing which dealers suck at fixing (esp. FCA dealers!), and most people grow weary of quite quickly and can sour their willingness to ever return. There's also some strangely poor lifespans of things
  10. Honestly service like this is appalling from a 'challenger' brand like Renault. I know the dealers are franchised, but renault aust bumped Hocevar and wonder why they can't move Meganes, and yet nearly every person I know who has bought a Renault new or used the dealer network has been summarily unimpressed. FCA brands have exactly the same problem. Contrast to the Koreans and satisfaction with dealers is high - so they come back and buy more <insert whitegood vehicle> down the track. Even Ford, who often get a bad rap - long long capped price service program, auto club
  11. You're right, it is Iron Blue. We had a Clio GT 1.2 available here for a while which came in Malta and the previous Megane 3 GT220 also came in Malta.
  12. Hmm I tend to use OZRS mainly at work or home and so I use a computer. Forums dont lend themselves neatly to mobile. But yeah Ive used it in Chrome on Android and it works nicely.
  13. Welcome. EDC = not for me, but glad you're enjoying your Meg. They certainly look lovely in Malta Blue.
