  1. As above, gearbox is probably the most common and expensive thing to fix. Next is check when the timing belts were replaced as that is also pricey to replace. Most other things are minor and easily fixed.
  2. If you're tall then you will definitely want the lowered set base (if recaro), it makes a world of difference. These cars are getting on a bit and some will require parts, but IMO once you do the car will last quite a while and be very enjoyable! My experience my be a little different to some others but I have found the car quite reliable and not super expensive to fix but that may be because I like to do most work myself. Two biggest things for these cars (any 197 or 200): 1. Timing belt change. If this hasn't been done within 4-5 years or 100K kms then budget 1000-1200 for rep
  3. No, the 2014 Meg RS brembos are not the same as the 2008 Meg RS brembos. Not sure there is a difference between the R26 and normal RS brembos but I don't think so. What those differences are besides looking different I'm not sure. As said above, the 2008 Meg RS brembos are the same as the Clio 3 RS brembos, maybe you could find a pair of those.
  4. Love it! Wheels look good also
  5. I could be mistaken here but think the limited edition Meg 3's were all blue and were the only ones not to have an LSD. Considering your desire for an LSD hopefully yours isn't one of these! Still a nice car regardless!
  6. lovely choice of car. ๐Ÿ‘
  7. Hi @trishy best colour for a Meg 4 right there ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  8. Good to see another Clio 3 around here!
  9. I agree, a clio 3 is a much nicer place to be!
  10. Check the gearbox for crunching in gears while driving, also check the steering for clunks. The steering rack can usually be fixed with a new bushing but the gearbox would be an expensive fix. Other than that it seems this one has had the major stuff done to it already. I'm not a fan of that gearknob but that can easily be changed.
  11. Do those mechanics actually know anything about Euro cars? There are tons of RS cars around here going strong year after year, quite a lot of which also see track time without any issues!

    Clio 197 convert

    I know of a member using a lithium battery on his daily 197 with no issues. Tiny compared to the stock one! That car also has the V6 airbox upgrade though to give space to mount the battery where the stock airbox is.
  13. If you are going to bother getting the upgraded synchros then may as well splash for an LSD as well ๐Ÿ˜‹ Overtaking is fine but just make sure to drop down a gear or two! It would be interesting to see if the megane gearbox can be fitted, on the otherhand an R26 engine/gearbox combo is a direct fit ๐Ÿค”
  14. In that case there is no way they are the same! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Clio 3 box is a TL4 if that helps anyone.
