    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.,)
  3. Welcome to the community ! Looks good. Hope to see you on the track. M2 looks nice too.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Welcome! Like the colour, looks really great.
  7. 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.

  9. 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™‚
  10. 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. πŸ™‚ Magic! Enjoy!

  13. 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! πŸ™‚ As tonym said, a few of us up here now.
  14. 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.
