  1. 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.
  2. Love it! Wheels look good also
  3. 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!
  4. lovely choice of car. πŸ‘
  5. Hi @trishy best colour for a Meg 4 right there 😎
  6. Good to see another Clio 3 around here!
  7. I agree, a clio 3 is a much nicer place to be!
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  11. If you are going to bother getting the upgraded synchros then may as well splash for an LSD as well πŸ˜‹ 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 πŸ€”
  12. In that case there is no way they are the same! πŸ˜‚ Clio 3 box is a TL4 if that helps anyone.
  13. The Clio 3 requires a little thought when attacking some twisties since it lacks torque especially down low, it can't for example be punched out of a corner easily especially uphill! Keep it above 5k rpm however, hook it into some corners and wow! Cruising is completely fine in my opinion, even though I've got the hardcore engine mounts, Recaros and lowered springs. This is probably more of a personal thing though. As for the synchros, in my case with 120K kms there is no crunching at all, seems luck of the draw with this. The fix for it is to have the steel synchro rings fitted but that is probably about a $3K job mostly because of labour costs. I've never driven a Meg 3 (probably because I'll want one too much πŸ˜‚) but I can honestly say that I prefer the Clio 3 to my old Focus ST for spirited driving. Depends on what you like, some like NA screamers others like turbo torque, take your pick.
