  1. 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.
  2. Welcome! Like the colour, looks really great.
  3. Welcome to the forum! There is a great collective of knowledge on the forum with forum members willing to share. 🙂 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☺
  5. 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. 🙂
  6. 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.

    Welcome to the forum. I've had my MY12 265 Cup for 5 years now, done 120 Kkm and still love to drive and look at it. They get better the more you drive them and mine makes me want to be a better driver. 🙂 Magic! Enjoy!

    Welcome to the forum. Car looks schmick. 👍
  9. Welcome to the Coastie crew. Hope to catch up on a drive soon and see if we can get you interested in a track day at some point. Have had my 265 for almost 5 years. Still love it! 🙂 As tonym said, a few of us up here now.
  10. How would you know? 😁😎 Anyone would think you have had an intimate relationship with it. I see it still has one of your knobs in place. As you say, still looks nice.☺

    Thinking about it, not as silly as it sounds. Slow code - heavy/inefficient, fast code - light/efficient.☺ Something, in my limited experience, not evident in most software these days.
  12. Welcome, car looks great! I have had a MY12 pre-face lift 265Cup for almost 5 years, and still love it! Plenty of joy ahead.☺
  13. Looking good! Although my preference is to retain the RS badge. With regard to the brake warning , check the fluid level and the brake pad (thickness) material remaining. The fluid level tends to go down, in the reservoir, when the brake pads wear,which is one of the things the sensor picks up, causing the dash light to show. General consensus seems to be not to 'top up' as when the pads are replaced it will force the brake fluid back up into the reservoir causing it to exceed MAX level and possibly overflow. If you have to 'top up' continually find the reason why, could be a leak in the system. Shouldn't be an issue if the car has been serviced regularly. If aware of all this, disregard the forgoing, sorry if telling you 'how to suck eggs'.
  14. I can relate to that. 🤔

    Help please

    I think the 250's were made up until mid 2012. I have a 265 manufactured in October 2012. So you're probably right especially if it has the yellow tacho. Mine has a grey tacho.
