Hello Everyone,

 

I've very new to french sport car, have being looking for a tidy facelift megane rs265 for a while and finally had a chance to own a cup premium model in the beautiful liquid yellow. Got so much to learn about the car, so hopefully you guys don't mind me asking questions if I ever can't figure out something. Thank you and enjoy the pic :)

That is a common response with an RS Megane...  They defy both physics and logic it seems.  :mrgreen:   Very engaging to drive, with few peers, even at considerably higher price tags...

What an apt username - the Meg will definitely keep you grounded at speed but with that liquid yellow you will not be missed.

 

Welcome to the club and enjoy the new ride!

 

Thank you Goatman  :wink: Hahaa.. I've used the same username in all car forums

Wow, that does look awesome in LY. Whilst I love the look of Meg IIIs in that colour, I'm not sure I'm brave enough to own one myself - must be turning into a boring old f@rt!

 

Love the RS though, what a fantastic little garage you have there. A mate of mine bought the very first RS3 delivered in Canberra and that thing was mental, ridiculously quick for something out of the box. And the sound that Audi has coming out of those pipes, just glorious.

 

Yep, I'm very envious! :yes:

Have a chat with Aress... he was similarly dubious of a LY Meg III, a until he bought an 8.08 in LY.  He can now recognise LY envy in others from across a room, football field, or a nation!

 

True story...

Sorry for the late replies, being away on a business trip

 

Thanks for the comment guys, I'm not as young as you think at age 34 but the liquid yellow from Renault has to be the best yellow from all car manufacturers and I'm so happy to own it! :)

 

The RS3 is the best sounding car I've ever had, have done a tune and decat so it's a little pocket rocket. Planning to delete the centre silencer on the RS265 for more sound as I felt it's really quiet atm!

And a highly illegal pocket rocket. Do you what the fines are for decatting?

Sorry, I didn't make myself clear.. it's a milltek secondary cat bypass pipe, so main cat is still there on the downpipe to make the car legal on the road. It's a very popular mod in the RS3 community that give some performance increase and amplifies the sound.Dont worry, I understand about the straightpipe decat fines and would never wanna take the risk and go that way! :)

I know of someone who copped a $2.5k fine in Victoria, and I believe the EPA can impose fines of well over $10k! Definitely not worth the risk!

I've heard of heavy fines ranging from 5-10k in NSW so definitely not worth the risk what so ever, plus it's so obviously from the fuel smell by driving behind you. I would never do it, just get a high flow cat at least 200cel and keep it legal on the road..

Aye, true indeed. And Mrs Aress was even more dubious. Something about her dead body was mentioned, was that a threat or incentive? Who can tell in marriage. Having owned a LY example for several months I wouldn't choose anything else. It's exquisite.
