  1. Please don't tell us how cheap it was..... Nice looking car.
  2. Welcome. Enjoy the ride ! (once you find it)
  3. Welcome Nice looking car ! 👍
  4. On the 265, it's 4 years or 40k km, whichever first. NOT 100k km.
  5. Others will correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that the 265 needs a new timing belt every 4 years or 40000km.

    Hey hey!

    I recently got one of these. One cup. Works well. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Left-Car-Seat-Gap-Crevice-PU-Leather-Catcher-Storage-Box-Organizer-Cup-Holder/224031906373?pageci=f33ae897-881c-4ae4-b41d-fbe4b44ae2e9
  7. You need to drive an rs280 cup. I drove both, as most do, and the cup was too harsh for me. Others prefer the cup. Each to their own. If you liked the sport chassis, then look for one of those.
  8. Both. It's an RS280 with a Cup chassis. Simply put, Cup has a stiffer chassis than a Sport, has black wheels and red Brembo calipers. DEFINITELY look outside your home town. I'm 3hrs SW of Melbourne. No dealer in Melbourne was willing to negotiate, so I found the car I wanted in Sydney, agreed a price over the phone/internet (including trade-in), drove to Sydney, swapped cars, drove home over a few days. Made a trip of it. Saved $8K. You MUST look elsewhere. Out of interest, have you driven both the Sport and Cup?
  9. That's a sport chassis, not cup. 2019 not 2018. But I think you got the Bose bit right though.
  10. Not sure what's upset you so much. In general, this thread is discussing fuels, with a reference to the Renault 'recommended' 95. There is a lot of BS out there that 98 is 'better' than 95, or 'i get better mpg or acceleration when using 98 over 95'. Surely by discussing (for example) my 3000km run on 98 vs my next 3000km run on 95, has some validity? I am actually trying to show that the recommended 95 is recommended for a reason. ie people shouldn't waste their money on 98 in the RS280 engine. If this topic doesn't interest you ravnj023, then don't read it.
  11. What I was saying (or trying to) was that the price I paid for the car I bought from NSW was $8k cheaper than the exact same car here in Vic. Clearly the NSW stealer was needing it gone whereas the VIC one wasn't. So i guess the important point, is my last comment in the above post saying "Just need to find a stealership that needs to sell one that they have had on their lot for a while. Time is your friend. Take your time and wait for the right car at the right price. Set up a watch list on carsales or similar and you'll see the prices move." If you read my longer post with the 6 dot points, that's how you need to do it. In my case, I shopped 3 VIC dealers, in 3 different towns/cities, but they really didn't want to negotiate on cars they actually had in stock. I found this very odd. So I looked interstate and with the help of a member here, found one that was a good price. I then negotiated fairly hard, but being very pleasant. It's always very clear from the first few exchanges how negotiable the price is likely to be.
