  1. Sweet ride! Fred at Superior Automotive is an absolute guru, best in Brisbane for Renault. Forget LeMans. Good luck mate, that doesn't sound too good but hopefully the solve is not too bad.
  2. Nice mate, looks real clean and I'm envious of your spoiler kit. Hope to see you around sometime, I'm relatively new 197 owner also - southside Brisbane. Haven't been able to get to many events/meetings due to working but I'm keen to get out there. These things are just SO much bloody fun to drive hey.
  3. Yeah, steer away from LeMans. Never heard anything good and personal experience would seem to agree. As already said, Fred at Superior Automotive Albion is your man. I'm in Brisbane and own a Mk3 197. Still kinda new to the group too and haven't met up with anyone on here as yet but I'm keen for cruises and track day fun times

    @OldPacStig hahaha! So true, just a cruise day. I fully intend for my next experience to be under a bit more of controlled conditions so I can really start to push my own boundaries.

    @JackJack Definitely mate! My first ever time on a track in any car was last weekend Euro Day at Lakeside. So. Much. Fun.

    Oh yeah!! I literally just read through that thread the other day. Some nice work there man. I'd love to hear your thoughts about the LSD and any more detail about the "refresh" process on the gearbox would be informative. I've got a slight vibration/noise under deceleration on mine which I believe is coming from the diff, going to start by seeing what some fresh oil in the gearbox does to it, it's only slight but noticeable all the same.

    Hey @Apu! Not much news, although I did take her out for the first time on a track over the weekend. Addiction confirmed! haha I have a long list of things I'm chipping away at but basically I'm looking to keep it pretty standard, it's a very fine machine as it was from the factory, although I might look into mapping out the flat spot in the low end of the RPM. I don't have truck loads of cash to spend unfortunately so my long list is basically just servicing costs and restoring things like the steering wheel and drivers seat bolsters for example, also not happy with the paint job on t

    Hey there, thought it was time to at least say g'day. Picked up my 197 late last year and absolutely love it to bits. Already got a lot of good info from searching this and other forums, tonnes of great knowledge out there so thank you. Looking forward to getting out to some meetings, cruises and track days. Never been on a track in my life and seriously looking forward to testing the limits of the Mk3, although more likely the limitations to be found will be my own rather than the car haha. Anyway it's been a long time between performance cars for me and I'm new to Renault in general
