  1. Alas, valves will bend, inter alia [emoji22]
  2. @MickHarris, welcome! Where are you located? There are some good specialist garages around
  3. It’s no problem Crikey, sometimes service centres can’t get you in for a month!!
  4. This one: FS (SYD) 2015 Pearl White Renault Megane RS265 Cup Premium - Rego 'til 2020, PRICE DROP https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink?share_fid=5329&share_tid=31824&url=http://www.ozrenaultsport.com/index.php?/topic/31824-FS-%28SYD%29-2015-Pearl-White-Renault-Megane-RS265-Cup-Premium---Rego-%27til-2020%2C-PRICE-DROP&share_type=t
  5. You’d be better off if buying one from a member here — even if it’s interstate. There’s a lovely white 265 in Sydney, full history, treated with mechanical sympathy. Check the classifieds posts
  6. Looks a beauty — welcome aboard, and that garage suggests additional motoring interests!
  7. My 182 is close to 190,000km and is solid as a rock. Has a virtually perfect service record as well, and is still on the original clutch (which has plenty of bite, too). Well cared for by its previous two owners. I wouldn’t hesitate to buy a high mileage 1x2, provided it has a decent service history and has been looked after — indeed, worth paying a bit more for that service history.
  8. Also, tapatalk notifications seem to have stopped for me, for this forum only
  9. E-go couriers — use their base-to-base option. But you’ll need good information on size/weight to get an accurate quote
  10. My 2004 Clio 182 has done 187,000km. Original clutch, engine, gearbox and still runs strong, no oil consumption, strong compression. IMO, as long as these cars have a good logbook with services completed by dealers or specialists, they’re very strong. But if you are worried, have the car checked out by one of those specialists
  11. Well, those sound like enhancements, not problems. In fact, many of those parts are upgrades over OEM parts...so I’m struggling to understand the question! The only question I’d ask is whether there is documentation that tells who has done the work, as some shops are better than others.
  12. Looks as clean as most that age, and not too hard to breathe new life into them (check out @Danny 's"Dimples" thread and @Gambit's orange build among many). What's the service history like? If there's missing knowledge, it's worth having a good Renault mechanic give it a once over to establish a baseline. My FRB (187,500km on the clock) just had a major service (excluding belts) done by RenoTech (Sydney) and it feels and drives so much better. Even though it has a very complete service record, I now know what's what and can trust it.
  13. 1. Sounds like a loose heat shield. You’d need to put it on a hoist to check 2. Oil can rise through the camcover bolts — not serious, just annoying — can be rectified with sealant by competent mechanic
