  1. He said it was sold in another thread.
  2. Nice, is there any difference with Oyster Grey and Lunar grey though? I seem to see a lot more Oyster Grey's in Europe rather than in Oz, unless it's just a difference in name alone?
  3. I've since seen the Cup+ gets heated, powered leather seats, and black out details on some fittings? While the Tropy+ gets the same, plus a seven inch display/Sat nav, reversing camera and front bumper sensors as well as the glass roof? Anything else, apart from the normal Trophee/Trophy goodies? I'm a little surprised both the Cup and Trohpee seem to be rated the same weight, but maybe that's a typo from the mags I'm reading. Surely all those goodies must weigh a bit, 'cept maybe for the Recaros. In regard to the stereo I've heard the standard one is pants, was the uprated set any better? And was that still an option for the Cups? Or do owners in general suggest something aftermarket, though I'd like to keep things factory when I can.
  4. Mmmm sourdough. All good points taken, thanks. I guess I know what I like options-wise, just tricky finding the car with most of them. Do Tibors come in different sizes? I've heard they're on Clios too, but are they the same size? Steevs seem to be a bit of a Vegemite wheel, I don't mind the look to be honest, but 18's are more appealing at the moment, as is Leather. I see Homer mentioned the Recaros are real leather, is that the case with the standard seats too, or are they some faux stuff? With regard to some of the confusing model designations, what extra do you get in a Cup+ or even a Trophy+? I've heard the Sport is a bit of a penny-pincher, and lost the LSD, so that counts that one out for me.
  5. Thanks, there's been some fine looking cars for sale up until recently and priced to sell, but since end of tax year and the epidemic escalation less so. Had my eye on a mint 250 Lunar Grey Cup Trophee further down the Peninsula but may have missed the boat on that one. Anybody's thoughts on the glass roofs, apart from visual appeal are they any easier/harder to live with? I presume they may add a fraction of headroom too. I'm a bit of a lanky enfoire, but then if I can fit in an MX-5 or MR2 I should fit in anything really.
  6. What's the deal with Lunar grey? I see a lot of UK posts mentioning Oyster Grey which looks more like Lunar Grey I see over here all the time. And yet neither are on that PDF and Oyster isn't on the UK link? Oops just ignore that, or better still mods delete it, didn't realise this was for Clios until too late.
  7. Thanks, my other car is a bit of a classic barge, so I am looking for something more focused, but still would prefer something relatively comfortable, something both the Audi and BM do have character-wise. I do prefer the Tibors to be honest, they remind me of an Alfa wheel a bit to look at. The older AX-I wheels with the five spokes, less so, but maybe they'd look better in anything but black.
  8. By the way, if anyone's interested in some light reading while in Lockdown, I did come across Bauer media have a lot of their mags available to read online, including 25years of Wheels magazine scanned and indexed, and has beauties like this... Here's the link which should get you started, or if this is too small to read on here. https://bauer-archive.x-cago.net/WHL/article/WHL-20110201-01104001/RENAULT-Megane-RS-250.html?
  9. Howdy folks, Thought I'd say hello while researching 250's and 265's. I'm in SE Vic and will be needing a new set of wheels once I get out of this Coronavirus hole. I've been torturing myself for the past few months looking at ads, mainly of manual coupes. My shortlist has been the Audi TT, BMW 1 series Coupe (125i) and the RS Megane of course. Also been swiping past the glut of 86's and BRZ's but I am fancying something Euro as I've been and done the Jap thing for a long time, though they still kind of appeal. To be honest I thought the Meg was probably a bit too boisterous for my liking as I am starting to mature, and I've often treated anything French with suspicion but have only heard good things about the mk III. They seem to be pretty cheap compared to my other choices, especially for their age, which means I could get something with less kays for something the same price in the German wing. Expect plenty of waffle and annoying newbie questions from now on. First question how much difference in ride quality does the 18" wheel have over the 19" Steevs? I like the look of the Steevs and would probably prefer a Trophee over a Cup, but did Trophee's ever come with Tibors from factory? Another interest is the seats. Are Recaros really super awesome compared to the standard ones? Again both look good (though leather Recaros look better) but is there much difference in comfort? Also in regard to leather, I take it it's some bulldust fake leatherette? Bonded leather nonsense? Rather than real leather? If so, are they at least hardwearing apart from the usual rub at the side squab?
