  1. Only briefly test drove one so can't really give an informed opinion on one.
  2. VW is definitely more to please the masses rather than the true drivers. When I've had this debate with people at work, it normally stops (on my part) when the comments get to "the interior feel and sat nav are far superior in the VW" They're lovely daily drivers with great "ooh ahh" feels with interior design and soft touch plastics but ultimately they're not the "drivers" car that a Renault is, once you're hitting a track. I've pretty much had all flavours of Renault ( 182, 197, GT220, 265 and Clio IV 200 and 220) in a relatively short period of time and each has it's own char
  3. So up and running with Firefox and Chrome but unfortunately, still the same error via tapatalk.
  4. Not sure if it's been noted but my desktop only works using chrome, while my mobile only works off firefox. Both leave me with the following error on screen.

  6. Maximum you can go to without rubbing is 225/40 18, not the 235/40 you mentioned. The handling doesn't alter to unusable, if anything it provides a better compromise as a daily driver with some additional suppleness and the "stretch" is removed from the rim. Also, the cost is greatly reduced. I have pirelli p zeros at the moment in the 225/40 18 and they performed quite well on the skid pan recently and didn't scrub the edges off as expected. And +1 here for driver training as the driver is always the biggest hurdle with a cars performance. There's plenty of fun stuff to be had out there o
  7. Welcome to the forum! Hope the issues aren't too frustrating.
  8. So you're saying your wife has wind?
  9. +1 for stay in the Meg. I've got the 265 and the clio iv 220 and while it's occasionally handy when feeling like mindless driving, Chuck is right in you still have to drive it thinking like you're in a manual. No creeping like in a torque converter auto, particularly on hills. I get more anxious in traffic in the iv now than in the Meg as I'm smoother and in more direct control in the Meg with the clutch in stop/start. And quality wise, I still find the meg a nicer place to be in. Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk

    They are P plate approved though.... Except the clio iv 220. The Megane GT220 is also P plate approved. The sport with 17" wheels will be cheaper to run with tyres for you. You can put the money you save on tyres towards further driver training so you can use what you've purchased safely. Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
  11. With a bit of luck, the fan might just need a bit of warmth and dry air. Otherwise, for the money if the history is there it could be a good buy. Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
  12. Having just gone from the Hankooks to the RE003s, they're similar in the dry but night and day in the wet. The RE003's are like driving on ice in the wet, at any speed. They're hard as nails though so likely I'll have to put up with them for many years now. The Hankooks are pretty good but wear very quickly. Only 10k with 2 track days out of the set on my 265 and 20k out of my wifes daily driver GT220.
