Howdy - New RS200 EDC owner

Howdy,

 

I'm picking up my new (demo) white Sport Trophy on Wednesday. Can't wait. :headbang::nod:

 

Only thing I'm not thrilled about is the stock Sport wheels. Not exactly my cup of tea. Unfortunately, the dealer wouldn't even consider selling me a set of black cup wheels, and the anthracite 18's are months away. Anyway, once I sort out the wheel situation, I'm looking forward to a bit of quality time in a car (I've commuted on motorbikes for the last 10 years). Would love to do it up like a Monaco GP edition, but we'll see. Maybe just get the stock wheels powder coated - dunno. I'll spend a bit of time getting to know the Gringo.

 

Cheers,

 

GM

Welcome and enjoy the car as well as the forum.

We look forward to seeing some pics once you reach the minimum post limit. :)

 

BTW.. for you and other newbies here, you will find a small link on the front page of the Board Index that takes you to "view active topics". I suggest it as a good place to learn how to navigate your way around. :wink:

Welcome mate! Congrats on the purchase - the Sport Trophy is a great spec.

 

The 200 EDC has a normal wheel spec range so there's plenty of aftermarket choice out there. Just search eBay for anything fits an Evo 5-9, from my understanding :wink:

 

Enjoy getting to know the new beast 8)

Thanks guys. It's my first Renault - the new one seemed to have enough day-to-day livability to fit the bill and fit the kids.

 

My wife is hoping a new car means I won't modify it - we'll see though. I tend to not be able to leave things alone. My bike made 98hp stock, and now it has 150hp atw. I'll leave it alone during warranty period anyway I guess.

 

Many other RS owners in Brisbane?

Well picked the car up yesterday. What a top little car. I haven't driven an older manual RS, but I gotta say, not hating the EDC gearbox at all. And the sound effects are a good bit of fun.

 

No point doing pictures yet, as the weather here is foul, the car is a wonderful shade of road grime grey - magnificent :headbang:

 

I'm also not hating the wheels as much when I can see them in person. I don't think photos do them justice. Jury is still out on whether I leave them as is, or powder coat them black. Hmmm. :?:

 

I haven't done anything much to it yet just a USB for tunes, floor mats, and non-slip matting in all the cup holder/chubby holes. Gonna book it for tinting in the coming weeks, but for now I will just enjoy.

 

Cheers,

 

GM
