  1. I have a Meg 3 Trophy with Pole Position seats and a previously busted spine and am not considered to be part of the younger brigade. The streets of Brisbane are pretty bad too and I have zero issues. You will learn which manhole covers to avoid on your regular routes. Running 19's with 245 35 tyres Buy it, you won't regret it
  2. i was lucky that while laying at home in bed with a busted collar bone, from writing off my first RS, my dream 8:08 in LY and the # was the year of my birth came up for sale. didn't stuff around and didn't haggle on price. probably overpaid by a couple of grand. But she is mine now and not going anywhere. I am hoping prices stay up, moving my Daihatsu soon if anyone is interested in a Copen, let me know
  3. Welcome, looks like a mint pick up. Theaks heaps for the discount too, didn't even know about it until I messaged the website. Look forward to meeting at one of the QLD talking BS nights. 13/1 looks like it has some traction

  7. I’ve used spareto in Ukraine for some parts, but you need the part number first.
  8. It’s one of 49.... mine no longer exists, so even rarer. The blue paint transfer is still on the pole I ended up being wrapped around after being tapped in the rear corner. As I said, a brilliant car, loved going into a right hander, flooring it, and letting the torque steer pull you through the corner after the apex to the outside ripple strip, I mean white line....
  9. I miss the torque steer, was a lot of fun to feather the throttle on to combat combined understeer and torque steer. I wouldn’t say it’s much softer ride than a cup when you take the recaros into account. Slightly more body roll than my 8:08 around the track. Still a great car despite people’s opinions on it not having LSD.
  10. Welcome. A beautiful car, I had one of these as my first step into a Renault 5 years ago.
  11. I wouldn’t have thought so, as the space saver has a big sticker picture on it saying it’s for the rear only. And from what is in this thread, they share the same rear brakes
  12. Almost a full cm shorter, the difference in rim thickness between the steeve and the steel space saver. On a Meg 3 8:08
  13. My space saver spare says not to put it on the front and comes with some shorter bolts for mounting
  14. I have a car that lived there for its first 4 years, that owner said he had a great relationship with the local dealer and had no issues. Only issue was asking them to provide a RWC for the car not their fault it had bald fronts and I wanted to put the new tyres on it once I got it to Brissie
