  1. ^^ 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 ! 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˜€

    Welcome Dale! There are plenty of knowledgeable people on here willing to share. I would suggest you browse ('troll' if you like 😏) the forum and become familiar with your areas of interest. There is plenty of 'good natured' discussion and humour, on here, that helps pass the time. πŸ˜‚ A couple of things to try and avoid, Bush fires, climate change, politics, changing the belts, tyres and oil used probably cover most of them. I'm sure other members can think of a few as well. 😁
  5. I don't think they'll ever give you anything in writing about that. Best you'll get is what I wrote, which is what I was told when I enquired both through the central phone number and the dealer. Same message as with other brands. Though I notice with Honda they say any modification voids warranty. Another reason not to buy a type R, as I really wanted more out of the exhaust. Bought my Demo 265 from Hiltons on the Central Coast. They had an exhaust shop fit a 3" soft steel pipe straight thru from the flex joint to an oval rear muffler. Only complaint I have is it wasn't in stainless. Sounds great, although I had to change the rear section 18 months ago, and did it in stainless. Always had the car serviced there until warranty finished and made them aware that I was doing track days. Never had a problem, but I think they would have trouble proving an exhaust caused a wheel to come off or the brakes to fail. 😁😏

    Congrats! Plenty of knowledge here, from people willing to share. Remember 'no photos or it didn't happen'. πŸ™‚ Let us know about previous cars/drives and future development plans, if any. πŸ‘

    On my12 265 cup, without proximity sensor, when I slide the card into the slot, it does a system check and comes up with 'ok' on the screen in front of the driver. I take that as 'ok' to press the start button. If mirrors are folded, they will fold back out. Engine light normally goes out after start up. Unless ,of course, you actually have a problem. If so, an indication of the problem should appear on the screen. (i.e., injector, maf sensor etc.,)
  8. Welcome to the community ! Looks good. Hope to see you on the track. M2 looks nice too.
  9. Hi, I've had my MY12 265 for around 6 years now and still love the way it 'looks' and every time I drive it, AND that's after more than 130K km. Mine has the RSMonitor, small screen version. While it is useful, importantly it gives the ability to adjust throttle settings to suit your driving style, which is probably it's best use. The other functions are interesting enough, but after a while you realise these cars are for driving enjoyment, not spending time marveling at all the 'do-dads' it has. They only distract from the 'driving experience'. Get a bit of driver training and some track time 'under your belt' and enjoy the drive. πŸ™‚πŸ‘Œ Factor in the cost of 'speeding fines', they are easy to get πŸ™, from recent experience. Just sayin.
  10. There is a thread on how to repair, if you're handy, in the Megane III Technical section (with pictures and DIY) that may be of use. The only other thing you could try, other than using a dealer, is getting a part from a wrecker that does Renault. Hope you get it sorted without too much cost. Let us know how you go.
  11. Welcome! Like the colour, looks really great.
  12. Welcome to the forum! There is a great collective of knowledge on the forum with forum members willing to share. πŸ™‚ We will follow, with interest. Post up some pics, when you get a chance.

    Welcome to the forum! Yes, if you're after a bit more noise, the centre resonator delete will please and give you pops and burbles, especially in sport and extreme modes. Enjoy the drive☺
  14. Good to welcome you to the forum and see pictures and hear of your use of your car. Great plans for a start in doing track days, will bring greater appreciation of your car. πŸ™‚
  15. Welcome Fays! Plenty of nice knowledgeable people on here willing to share their 'know how' and experiences. As is said on here, 'pictures or it didn't happen'. Look forward to seeing your drive.
