  1. Yeah, sorry to hear of the accident, but glad you have minimal injuries, although I would suggest you follow up on the neck injury. πŸ˜₯ Sounds like, if you have the inclination and the facilities to part it out, that's probably the way to minimise your costs. Good luck with whatever you decide.

    I use RenoTech in Sydney for services. Great people who are enthusiasts themselves. What little they don't know about Renaults they are keen to find out. Enjoy your car, stay safe, in every respect.

    Welcome! Best bang for driving fun you'll find. Have had mine for 7/8 years and still love driving it. Also makes me a better driver because I always want to get it right. Advise you to do track days and learn to drive it properly, in a safe environment, if you don't do them already. Also some track day driver tuition, if you haven't done it already. That also lets you resist the urge of using it's performance on public roads. Otherwise, the red and blue light brigade will enjoy handing out the fines. Apart from the fact you need to be considerate of oth
  4. That's a good way to go. For MY 2012 265 I would be ve...ry lucky to get more than $15 K for it on trade in with a dealer and with any sort of 'bingle' other than 'slight' would probably involve it being written off. Given that comprehensive insurance on mine is probably going to cost $7/800 in October I may go to 3rd party nock as well. Although I pay mine monthly through APIA Insurance. AND while that costs a little more, overall it 'saves' the 'big hit' of having to pay it all at once. Works for me at any rate. πŸ™‚
  5. This !!!! I know what fun is, and don’t think that would be it. It comes back to what was said in a movie once. 'Are you feeling lucky today' (punk)? OR 'some such' quote. For me, I don't seem to have that sort of luck. More likely, that mine would break, the day after it was due. ☹
  6. Agree !!! As Miles, at Renotech, explained to me once, we don't think twice about paying comprehensive car insurance to cover ourselves for accidents. How often do we actually utilise the 'benefits' of that? Belts are just another expense in driving our great cars. If you can't do them yourself, at least RenoTech know what they are doing. AND do it at a good price. I'd suggest if you have a problem with with that. 'Build a bridge and get over it'. IMHO. 😁🀣
  7. Have used you guys for brake needs before and found excellent knowledge/advice has been given. I am considering a tune and trying to assess the 'pros and cons' of the various approaches. As I understand the 'basics' fuel is a 'coolant' and 'leaning it out' (lower AFR) makes for higher running temperatures. Sooo.....I guess it is a matter of being able to find the compromise that doesn't damage your motor. It seems there is a 'difference of opinion' on 'what is safe and what isn't). Who'd of thought? 🀣 There are members on here, that would deal with the issues
  8. What's wrong with a wrap. (RAP) 🀣 I've had it for years. Perfect paint protection I say. AND, if the dealer installed it, it must be good. πŸ˜› Have 3M clear wrap as well. Looking a bit 'ordinary' after 5/7 years and due for a bit of a 'fix up' when I get a 'wild urge' to pay it a bit of attention. I'm sure most are aware of the feeling. 😷
  9. Forgive me, but it seems you are more into the 'bells, whistles and bright lights ' side of driving. If you are really into 'the driving' get a Renault RS Sport. That's what they are about. NOT the latest 'gadgets and driver assists' the car has. Go to a couple of track days, and get some 'driver tuition'. AND the end result will be, you'll have fun, and learn to drive properly. DON'T try to do it on public roads, you will only put other roads users at risk. Apologies if I've misjudged you and it sounds like I'm trying to tell how to 'suck eggs'. It was

  13. ^^ for me to, just read your initial post and your battle with Haemophilia. Glad to hear you are having some success with treatment. By the way, don't listen to @Moosey (what does he know anyway) 😁 Mind you, I've had a Meg III for, coming up 6 years. Probably a little biased. πŸ™‚ I look forward to watching your exploits and the development of your car.

    Welcome! Enjoy the drive home! πŸ˜€
  15. Welcome ! The car looks great ! What options have you taken on, if any. If it's like my 265 the more you drive it the more you'll enjoy it. Sign up for a track day to learn how to use it 'in the manner intended'. If that appeals to you. πŸ˜€
