  1. Olympic Parks, popular locations with some nice lightings outside ANZ Stadium
  2. You sir are a lot more patient than I am But have to say I was tempted in buying a 159 at the time too, totally loved the shape of it and design was extraordinary from head to toe. Also the fact it comes in manual, a variety of engine choices from diesel, 1750tbi or na 3.2 V6. I remember there were a period of time they brought in a small batch left over stock from other countries and slashed the price to under 50k brand new driveaway
  3. Lol.. thanks for reminding me, never get tempted to trust another Alfa ever again
  4. Hahaa.. I agree with you! They probably wanna save some money and seafreight a part in for you with other stuff they need
  5. If I remembered correctly, I paid 43k brand new for my QV back in 2012. I would expect the later build year ones have all the problems ironed out, considering it was release end of 2011 so my one was still quite a early life model
  6. Yep, nothing major with the Meg RS, just some small niggles here and there. The car itself drove amazingly anyway you want it to Lol.. As for the Alfa Giulietta QV, it was kind of like a love at the first site and impulse buy for me.. Sitting inside the car feels very special in a way that you don't get from other cars or maybe its just me The 1750tbi engine is extremely smooth to drive and performance was not bad being just over 1300kg, only downside is the lack of limited slip diff when you start to push it a bit more. As for issues I encountered on it, I have to say its
  7. Never had any electronic issues on my '15 Meg RS265 CP.. I bought the car used from a private 1 owner with 8000km on the clock only so it had warranty until 2020, drove it a few days and notice the brake pedal was wobbling side to side a lot, took it to the dealership and they look at it told me its normal all Renaults are like this so get use to it yahh ok, so I learnt to live with it.. Went back for warranty once due to oil leaking from engine cover bolts which is a very common issue, can easily be spotted once you take the top plastic cover off. I even told the dealership the oil
  8. Mechanical wise, the Meg RS was a lot more reliable than I thought even with a lot of track use.. As long as its got a good service record, with the age of most used Meg RS timing belt service should have being done already. What's left is just tear and wear parts like every other car
  9. From my experience, warranty is pretty much useless when it comes to Renault.. Dealership services are quite poor and almost cannot fully fix a problem when it occurs, which result in you wasting time taking your car back again and again If I had known I would of bought a cheapest one I can find and any issues I'll just take it to reputable Renault mechanics to get it fixed, better than buying a more expensive one thinking it still has warranty left.
  10. Being end of 2018 already, used Megane RS has come down even further as you would expect with Renault depreciations.. Consider a friend of my picked up a 2012 RS265 8:08 with 38k km for 18k a few months ago, so there's definitely bargains to be had if you look around! Something like this would be a better pick if the car is legit, you won't be butthurt later on with depreciation when selling https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Renault-Megane-2013/SSE-AD-2446379/?Cr=10
  11. OP I so agree with you regarding choosing leather interior for better tear and wear, I also picked a '15 RS265 Cup Premium because its the only facelift model that comes with full leather interior and also prefer the touch/feel of leather for everyday use over alcantara as well.. Earlier this year I sold my Meg with 25,000km on the clock and a lot of trackdays, the interior still looked brand new. I only used Mother's 3in1 leather cleaner/conditioner every 2 month during my ownership on the leather interior surfaces
  12. Jump on Gumtree, there's a few Megane 2 wrecks available and you might be lucky to find one in your colour as well..
  13. That is the only Megane RS model to arrive in Australia without a LSD, for most people its not a popular choice..
  14. You're gonna love it, the megane is by far the best handling car I've ever owned in stock form and that's coming from a few fun sports cars!
