  1. The facelift trophy I think comes with an akra. The RS16 (I think it's called) also does. That was an option and not all will have one. You presumably mean the R.S. 18 special edition.
  2. If you really want to track it you should think about upgrading the brakes first.
  3. Congrats and welcome in the matt grey club.
  4. Hello and welcome, nice car you got there! Great you left the dark side and stepped over into the light. 😎 Some sidenotes. The first F4R engines were already developed before the alliance with Nissan and I don't know if Nissan was actually involved with the newer versions. The standard tire size for the Speedline Interlagos rims is actually 215/40R18. And yes, French engineers are a bit "special" when it comes to certain things.
  5. You're way too slow! 😎
  6. Hello, welcome and congratulations. The roof shouldn't be a wrap. Normally the A&Ds have a black metallic roof (the paintcode is TE GNA) while the other parts are just gloss black as you said. You don't have a jack because the car came with ContiSportContacts which are run-flat tyres. Besides that all C3RS with the 18" rims came without a jack but with said "goo kit" from what I know.
  7. Hello and welcome, as you can see I'm from Germany and therefore don't know what brands are available down there and what regulations have to be met but over here the people mainly go for OZ Ultraleggera or ATS GTR for trackday use because of the low(er) weight.
  8. The French Gendarmerie had some M3RS for their Brigade rapide d'Intervention (highway patrol pursuit units). From what I get they've an upgraded engine (presumably just a different ECU map) with 10 extra hp. The linked wiki article in French says there were only 55 units existing but it's unclear to me if they're talking about units or cars here. I'd actually guess it's the latter.
  9. That's possible because the traitors at Renault have used it for certain GT (Line) versions before. I say traitors because Malta-Blue is actually the (modern) Gordini colour and should therefore be reserved only to said editions in my opinion. They could have easily gone with Albi-Blue (Monaco-Blue) instead which isn't that different but no special edition colour.
  10. Hello and welcome. I sat in a GT last year and played around with it a bit. Not my cup of tea but it didn't made a bad impression. At least over here the colour is called Iron-Blue (TE RQH). Malta-Blue (TE RNT) is the Gordini colour. I was told that this colour was reserved for the Megane GT and certain Clios. Renault's decision are often not understandable. I for example don't get why Bamboo-Green isn't available for RS models. It would surely look good and could have been the direct successor of AG.
  11. The admins should be able to change your username. They were so kind to do it for me because I messed up mine when I registered. @PaulD???
  12. It's not damage? You're right it is but it says a lot about their quality control. I unfortunately don't have pictures of the spots and the insect. And as we're with it please also take a look at the rubber seal (first photo) and look at how the metal is crimped and welded (second photo). Since when are dealers responsible for not fitting doors and the like? I mean you can clearly see that the chips in the first two photos are related. It's metal on metal or better paint on paint here. Like I've said there were rumors that they have problems with LY and TO. For some time these colours weren't even available (in the configurator).
  13. You decide if these are "issues" or not. Btw, did I mention that there also are spots under the clear coat and that there's a fly or moskito sticking in the paint?
  14. In Germany we either use numbers or letters plus the phase. So a 197 would be a C3RS Phase 1 or simply CRS Phase 1 (A was the first Clio, B the second and so on). The three digit designations seem to be an English language thing only. Over at clio197.net they for example sort them as following: 197, 200, 200T and 220 Trophy. We have a 50+ page thread over at cliors.de only related to "power loss" and multiple others related to things like acting up EDCs, R-Link and other issues. Great if you don't have these problems down there in Australia but I somehow doubt that's actually the case. And as we're with it. I've read your "mate of a mates mate" comment about the paint problems with the M4RS. All I can say is that I'm not here to piss on RS and talk bad about their products. I'm just reporting what I read and hear and in this case it's actually 2nd hand info coming directly from one of the first owners of an M4RS over here.
  15. At first the designation RS 200 actually referes to a Clio 3 RS Phase 2. What you're talking about is an RS 200T or respectively 220(T). To be honest I wouldn't even look at a Phase 1. There are simply to many reports on bugs related to the EDC and other things. Besides that the quality of the Phase 2 seems to be up a notch and most of the known bugs have been weeded out.
