I have just joined the forum, as I am looking for advice on buying a Megane RS 275 Cup Premium. I have read all the reviews I can find, and have been waiting for a car to come up for test drive and sale in Victoria (I live near Geelong, but on a dirt road, so black cars are out). I have driven a succession of fast and modified hatches (but never a Renault), but currently drive a modified current model MX5.
My reservations about buying an RS are concerns about Renault reliability (which is why I am looking for a car with a decent remaining warranty) and the ability to cope with the crappy roads west of Geelong. This is NOT a daily driver, but a fun car for country drives in the You Yangs and beyond.
I am quite prepared to wait for as long as it takes for the right car, once I have managed to get a test drive to prove the RS is right for me.
If an RS is not the right car for me, I may have to wait until next year for when second hand Hyundai i30n's start to appear.
All advice appreciated.
