  1. welcome to the forums. Congrats on the purchase.
  2. one other thing - the launch control functionality is limited to 1600 cycles (mechanical protection). I can't remember if there's a thread about resetting that or not. If you're buying from a Renault dealer I believe they can provide you the stats on that. You might be able to ask private vendor to get the stats for you too?
  3. welcome to the forums! we're close to 40K kms in a 2015 Sport - no issues with the gearbox. in terms of things we've had to have looked at (and all warranty) - recall for gearbox software update and rear spoiler checked (someone on here had the attachment fail) - ours was fine. MediaNav unit in the base line Sport model (not sure off the top of my head which other models) - some people had problems streaming music via Bluetooth (occasional micro-drop-outs). Our unit was replaced by Renault Australia with the MediaNav Evolution unit (as were a number of other forum members' units). Problem solved. other issue we have (and ongoing but no big deal) - a slight occasional 'groan' noise turning at low speed from stand still. Numerous threads - most likely explanation is it's the hill-assist. I've never been able to replicate it in race-mode (this mode turns a bunch of electronics off and the hill assist doesn't operate either). I'm sure other people will add their experiences too. Bear in mind there was a point where Renault Australia moved from 3 year to 5 year warranty so check that out. Good luck with your search - and check the for sale are of the forum - a lot of very fastidious forum members - you might find just what you're after there.

  8. welcome to the forums!
  9. We've owned our 2015 RS Sport for close to three years now, approx 35K kms driving and no issues, been very happy with the car
  10. Congrats and welcome to the forums... my wife and I considered buying that one interstate and shipping it down but found the dealership communication a bit hit and miss and ultimately we passed on it
  11. because the ECU is calculating when to change down and you run the risk of effectively double downshifting which in turn adds stress to components

    Greetings from Adelaide

    welcome to the forums, great choice!
  15. We've done 33K kms in ours and no reliability issues. DCT is fine; if you drive in manual mode - let the gearbox deal with downshifts when driving on public roads. The only exception to this I've found is occasionally when driving hard and braking to take a left turn off a main road I will knock down from 4th to 3rd myself. Try not to crawl using the footbrake in traffic, use stop start technique. I've been lucky enough to drive a Lambo Gallardo and Ferrari 360 - and with both the instructor gave me the same advice regarding letting the computer deal with downshifts.
  16. We test drove a frost white Trophy with 23km on it earlier in the year - the car hadn't even arrived at the dealership when we enquired about it... went for a test drive the following week once they had it delivered - and it looked quite dirty. Immediately raised a red flag with the missus regarding maintaining the paintwork and it would have been her daily. Great to drive but dealer lost the sale due to not having the car look immaculate.

    Trophy from Adelaide

    Welcome to the forums...
  22. Welcome to the forums! buy one of these pedals... I think it's a forum member who manufactured them ebay I believe the Mazda RX8 space saver is good for the cup as well as the sport if you don't want to contend with puncture repair kit shenanigans if the unfortunate circumstances arise...
