  1. Do you mean marks like polish overrun onto plastic? Does it come of with alcohol? Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
  2. Is it also missing a tab though? I think that's what's mainly causing the rocking. Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
  3. There's a few wreckers in Sydney on gumtree too with plenty of Megs in their yards. Atwins spares is one I've used before. I'm sure they'd post.
  4. You've tried the wreckers in Australia? There's a few floating around. https://www.asv.com.au/part-search/ I found it under 2013 megane, 6 LH and RH headlamps available. Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
  5. There should be replacement head lamps floating around. They're common across all the Meg's, rs or otherwise. Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk

    Try this thread for how to DIY fix
  7. Maybe try again and be sure that the locating tabs at the back of the housing go into their correct slots. There are also L shaped guides underneath that slide along a rail. I was thinking you might be missing the chrome slide bar, but that seems to be in place.
  8. Can you get a photo of the headlight from above, with the bonnet open? There should be two 10mm bolts holding them in place, as well as a chrome "slide bar" . Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
  9. Not sure. I've never used it. I use RaceChrono on my mobile which starts and stops timing automatically based on gps data.
  10. Welcome and nice pick up! If you're looking for the throttle maps in RS Monitor, unfortunately that wasn't fitted on the GT220's. And shame you're so far away, you could have a cheap pickup of some new tyres from me.
  11. Welcome mate! Good start to the Renault world [emoji4][emoji106] Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
  12. GT220 only has the single mode as before, but has a whopping mid range. So, merging onto the Gore Hill freeway which was already fun before, is now epic. Biggest difference between the two is that the GT220 is silent compared to the 265, so having a peek at the speedo confirms that everyone else isn't doing the 40kmh and that yes, you have picked up speed really quickly. The 265 has more power in normal, possibly what was available in sport before. Again, it's felt in the mid range with extra torque kicking in from about 2500rpm. Switching to sport and you get the noticeable bump up as before, with the throttle reacting more quickly. In sport, the mid range bump keeps building right up until redline which is also reached a hell of a lot faster. Fuel economy in both cars has improved significantly, with the 265 now having zero difference between normal and sport modes and sitting consistently on 10L/100. Previously it was 12 in normal and high 13s in sport. The GT220 just sits on low 10s and doesn't change, also down from mid 12s. @DOOOOK wrote up a great timeline of his experiences with "tuning" on the Renault Club Facebook page, clearly outlining how he had stepped his way along with each type of tune (remote VS on dyno) and their application for each situation. I am happily staying on the first step with no further mods being applied to any of my current cars and only an occasional track day, if any, in the 265. Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
  13. Yep, it's possible. They're probably selling it to you on the date complianced, not built. May have sat on the docks for a few months. Chucks old red 265 was a 2014 non FL and even had a 5 year warranty. Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
  14. Exactly what they're quoting according to the dyno. I haven't got around to testing the GT220 or the 197 but I have no doubts they're as claimed too. Butt dyno says yes.
  15. I've had a bluefin tune done to each of my cars (265, GT220 and 197) and they're all running sweetly. It doesn't sound like you're after something over the top so it may suit you too. Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
