  1. Thanks guys. Definitely going the 8:08 route, just put a deposit down. @lachlan8I don’t think that is an 8:08, I thought all 8:08s have leather recaros.
  2. DIlemma guys... I'm pretty deep into negotiating an 8:08 when I just saw this a Trophy+ pop up on Carsales for the same price (although I have negotiated timing belt replacement included for the 8:08). The Trophy+ has 55,000kms on the dial (which is 30k less than the 8:08) and also has the leather recaros. Pretty sure Trophy+ has sunroof and satnav. I am so torn... What would you do?! 8:08 is probably more special but both effectively the same car. https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2013-renault-megane-r-s-265-trophy-manual/OAG-AD-20006733/?Cr=0&gts=OAG-AD-20006733&gtsSaleI
  3. Cheers guys. From what I can tell, cup premiums are going for mid to high 20s and 8:08s for low 20s if < 100k kms. Bit of extra value in the 8:08 route for mods but obviously don’t get the extra cup premium goodies. Damn COVID tax!! If only I’d pulled the trigger early 2020.
  4. Thanks all. Am leaning towards the 8:08. I know this is controversial but pearl white is also my pick. Love the look of the alcantara in the cup premium but thinking the leather recaros easier to maintain. Also the bi-xenons are a big plus.
  5. Hi, I’m about to take the plunge and purchase either an RS265 8:08 or a RS275 cup premium. Is there any discernible performance difference between the two? Not really concerned by the extra power, because this can be eclipsed easily with a tune. More so talking about any dynamics/handling difference between the two (apparently cup premium has lighter weight suspension components). I imagine it would be hard to tell any difference on a test drive. Cheers, Dave
  6. Congratulations @Kranix! Trophy+ is a great spec. How many kms did you pick it up with? Full service history is the main thing.
  7. Hi all, I’m new to the forum. After obsessing over the gen 3 RS meganes for many years, I’ve finally decided to start seriously looking to buy. My criteria initially started at RS265 cup with < 60k km. Given the already deflated state of the car market (and now coronavirus), I’ve expanded this criteria to RS275 cup premium. I’m obsessed with the alcantara trim, recaro seats and akrapovic exhaust. I feel like this spec makes the car even more special and I’d regret anything less - maybe I’m getting greedy. I would love to hear any thoughts on the following: Are the recaro seats com
