New Member, Old Car - Megane Ii 225 Cup


Recommended Posts

Hi folks,


I'm Pete, and I'm new to the forums and to Renault, having just bought my first RS from a member here, Mick_0003 -




I've been on the hunt for a sport hatch since the beginning of the year, and more avidly ever since moving into a tiny lane-way in the city two months ago. It had to be practical enough to cart the two kids around; a fun performer, as I'm moving on from classic Porsches; European; and somewhat uncommon, as I hate driving around in cars that I see on the road all the time.


The catalyst for looking at Meggys was a black 225 that was regularly parked at my old employer (Qantas), which always reminded me of how much I loved these cars when they first came out.


Anyway, Mick_0003's ad came up on the classifieds here, and the rest is history.


Mick was a great guy to deal with, and has already invested in some of the best mods you can get for these cars as per my sig.


I've now got a short shifter on order from K-tec, and will look at intercoolers and a hard-pipe kit once the wallet is recovering. Would love to stumble upon an R26.R titanium exhaust and some RS Recaro Sports seats, but I don't fancy my chances!


I'm trying to convince the wifey out of her current Touareg and into something more compact, like a Captur, it'd be nice to have the matching badges parked out back.

Welcome, good choice!


Like you said, R26.R exhausts will be almost impossible to come by, esp with none in Oz. Plus shipping from UK would be something like 200 pounds. The K-tec stainless steel 2.75" system is fairly lightweight I believe?
