  1. 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. ☹
  2. 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. 😁🤣
  3. 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
  4. 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. 😛 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. 😷
  5. 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
  6. Double post Having an issue with using the 'Unread Content' button. It usually clears the post and and returns you to the list of unread topics. It's doesn't seem to be happening for me now. Not sure what has happened. Thanks.

  9. ^^ 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. 🙂 I look forward to watching your exploits and the development of your car.

    Welcome! Enjoy the drive home! 😀
  11. 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. 😀

    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. 😂 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. 😁
  13. 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

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

    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.,)
