ewengers Posted 16, March 2016 Report Share Posted 16, March 2016 Hi guys Just a quick greeting here. I bit the bullet and bought myself a Renault Megane RS 275 Trophy last year. It was delivered last Christmas eve (very last minutes) and I went on a trip with the car and my wife right after I got my car key from the dealer. My sweet Jesus, it was such a BLAST as soon as I started driving through some winding road. I am not gonna repeat what all Megane RS owners have experienced (agile, sharp steering etc.) with their cars here. If you have one, you know how good it is already. If you haven't and you are interested in driving, please do yourself a favor, try to experience it. It WILL make your day. Before I made my mind and purchased this car, I have several options in mind. VW Golf R, Ford Focus ST, Ford Focus RS (has to wait for at least 6 months from that time), Toyota 86 and even the legendary Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R. They are all great cars due to their own individual merits. To some, they might even be much greater cars than Megane RS with the same amount money. I have A TON of pros and cons in my head at the time among all these cars. I also have many doubts in this French hot hatch. First and foremost, it's a French car which never has good reputation in terms of reliability (at least it has never been a selling point). And let's face it, reliability is arguably the most important thing in a car. Then it's the age of the car. The very same car (except some minor exterior/interior updates) has been on sale for about 6 years now and the next revamped Megane RS is just around the corner. I know new car is never guaranteed to be a better car, but when it is, it usually makes you a little jealous every time when a new one drive pass by. To be honest, I had all those nagging thoughts in my head even while I was signing the contract. However, when I got to drive the car on a winding road, all those became completely irrelevant. From the instance you started enjoying the car, the question of why I bought this car became why NOT? It made you like a race driver who smiles like a moron every time you enter in and out of a corner. It was one of the best time of my life. Anyway guys, just say hi again and can't wait to make some friends here and perhaps go on a cruise with those interested soon. I also have an instagram account (#ewengers) with some photos of the car to share. Hope you guys enjoy it. Chat soon, people.
