Need your approval - RS 250 cup

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, newbie here but not yet an owner. Hoping to get your blessings / seal of approval over an RS250 Cup on carsales:

Check out this Renault Megane.
https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2011-Renault-Megane-RS-250-Cup-Manual/SSE-AD-6015268

Any red flags or issues that come to mind I should be aware of? Is the stage 2 tune a danger combined with high kms (116k)?

Thanks! Apologies if this is in the wrong spot, as a newbie I'm not too familiar with the forums.

Cheers, Oscar

Welcome!
Perhaps could go in the RS advertised online thread but this is just as good.
Alpine affair has a great reputation on the forum, so it might be worth calling them and asking them about the car.
They are very reliable cars, though I never tuned mine I was going to when warranty expired (never got around to it).
I would say that as long as it's been maintained well it should be fine.

Personally id look for a newer lower km example. But if the blue one ticks all your boxes and the mods then go for it. Do you have a budget in mind?

Budget depends on the car. Condition, kms, etc will be reflected in whatever price I pay. I was looking for an RB8 previously but the colour of this particular 250 was appealing. 

 

Thanks for the help all, will let you know what I go with if/when anything happens!
