  1. Yep +1 for the Alcantara upholstery it’s much nicer than leather and easy to clean.
  2. No problem, if you can’t get a test drive there’s a few forum members in Queensland who might take you for a ride. I’d be happy to but Unfortunately I’m a long way from Brisbane.
  3. Hi Ernie, welcome to the forum! I own a 2019 RS 280 cup and I specifically bought it for the differential and firmer suspension. I think it comes down to what your personal preference is regarding the suspension as I like my cars to ride firmly and this car is no exception. The diff for me makes a big difference through the corners. Suspension wise I think you would mainly notice it when your cruising around town. It can be a bit jiggly but once you’re up to faster speeds it seems to smooth out the bumps pretty well in my opinion. We bought ours and drove it to Tasmania and we were
  4. Agreed. I’ve got a megane 4 RS with cup chassis and it’s and amazing car. I’ve never owned a Renault before this and it does everything well. I thought my bmw 1M was the best car I’ve owned but the megane makes the bmw feel less capable in comparison. Like speedfiend41 I was a bit ambivalent about the car until I drove it a bit more. I don’t think there’s much that would keep up on a winding road.

    We bought our megane RS 280 cup manual the same as yours to replace my wife’s 2008 golf R32. Whilst the golf was a good car it was never engaging like the megane is. However I find the megane an interesting car, it is like its bored just driving normally and when you drive it harder it’s suddenly alive. The somewhat clunky gearbox along with the rest of the car works brilliantly when you’re driving purposefully rather than floating along. As you say it rewards you for making the effort to drive properly.

    Great choice. Exactly the same as mine. [emoji3]
  7. On our recent trip to Tasmania with the megane 280 RS we found ourselves in places that only had 95. I checked the manual and as per the fuel door you can use 95 and the car ran perfectly probably a bit less responsive and used more fuel but otherwise good.

  10. Hi Everyone, As the title says my wife and I picked up a megane rs 280 cup to replace her 11 year old golf V R32 today. We have never owned a Renault before and the quality seems pretty good compared to the golf and bmw I have. The megane is amazing to drive the harder you drive it the better it is. It’s a big call for me but I think it may be more fun than my 1M. Renault have done an amazing job with this car and so glad we got the cup pack, the suspension is very smooth at speed and the diff just pulls the car tighter into the corner. Just wow ! It’s a very good car for the money I thi
