  1. I've had a bluesskysea b1w for 2 years and it's been awesome - costs around the 70-80 mark. I also experienced the sensitive g-sensor, but once dialed down in the menu, mine works ok
  2. Congratulations mate, you'll not be disappointed! Did you get the sport or cup variety? The Mazda RX8 space saver has the necessary bolt pattern and offset to clear the brakes, and go for 100-250 bucks at wreckers. I strap mine down in the boot with ratchet straps from Bunnings and was lucky to get a cage over the top from an ozr member too. I have the goop too somewhere.

    What! You were the biggest bagger out of them for a long time 😂
  4. You mean Cup wheels or Sport too?
  5. I have one, it sounds better (more noticeable induction noise) and I'd swear on a religious book of choosing that the throttle response in normal auto mode is superior to the paper one.
  6. Yup, working now - am replying on my device 😁
  7. Hi - since yesterday, I have been unable to access the site via my android phone (android one os). Every time i try it says the "website took too long to respond".....but I can access it alright via desktop. Anyway FYI
  8. Yeah - just get the nut n bolt ones as my velco one has separated after almost 3 years and now I'm relying on the residual glue to keep it in place as superglue doesnt work.
  9. Welcome mate I'd say removal of the noise vibrator tube from the charge pipe to the cabin is cheap and effective a improving NVM (all you need is some pipe caps from ebay). A panel filter improves throttle response in normal mode and offers some nicer (mild) intake whoosh if that is your thing.
  10. Is there any way to change it to white with black text as before. I find the current dark skin quite uncomfortable to view...

    Delivery kilometer

    Mine had 42km on it when i collected it
  12. That's the one! Just decide if you want the velcro or nut/bolt version. I have the verco one - perfect. No droning on the prior question either. At highway speed you can't pick a difference, but giving it beans you most certainly can. Plus pops and cracks in Sports mode too
  13. The one thing to hook up via ebay (or from a member here who makes em) is a OEM look deadpedal that slots into the footwell like Renault intended - costs about $50
  14. Nice work mate - now get the centre resonator chopped out for $100 and unleash noise equivalent to a catback
  15. Again with the uninformed claims of "truth". 1) 2016 Sport Premium 2) From new - 2+ years and just over 12k km 3) Essentially flawlessly. It has its quirks, like any car, but knowing what they are is most of the way to manage them. E.G. You need to know that a DCT is not an auto and drive it as such, otherwise it will seem flawed and jerky. My only beef has been the mediasystem, which sometimes is laggy or refuses to read a USB. 4) I've only used a dealer, so have stealer prices. I've had no problems; the only thing was discovering half way through the Phase 1 run, they changed the door seals to be fewer then the first Phase 1's production run. It doesnt really make a difference - none i can notice - but i got the replacement seals from Renault Aus. 5) Make sure it has a proper service history either at the dealer or a good indi. If you buy a ~late 2014 onwards model, it should have the 5 year warranty, which may give you some peace of mind. Some of the early 2013's needed a recall to fix the spoiler and prevent it falling off - if you look at those years, check any recalls have been done.
