Hi Corey, welcome, glad to see you've made it on here.

 

:) Thanks for the "grand tour" over your car last weekend too, you'll find quite a few photos of it on here already. (like here: http://www.ozrenaultsport.com/forum/vie ... php?t=6010 and here: http://www.ozrenaultsport.com/forum/vie ... php?t=6044 )

 

I forgot to mention that there's a French Car Day on 23rd September in the city, finishing at up Birdwood. A few of is will be going so it would be fantastic to have you there if you don't mind the drive into town. Details are here: http://www.ozrenaultsport.com/forum/vie ... php?t=6003

G'day Corey. Welcome aboard!

Looking forward to catching up on a drive day soon :)

 

We often head out your way from the hills, so we can always catch up for a coffee at Nuri or Lyndoch or somewhere...

Thank you for the warm welcome.

 

I am very proud of my "ride" and quite willing to meet up with any other car nuts who would like a look.

 

I have seen many questions in other threads and i'm more then willing to answer any of them.

 

Just a couple i have seen - it's done just under 18000 miles

 

There are no dents - but it has a cracked spioler (in the process of repair)

 

Had no trouble registering it as it is from europe and a personal import - also i didn't have to take it to regency as i live more then 60 km from town - good old country folk!

 

Any way any other questions - keep them coming

 

Thanks again for the welcome

Welcome to our shores fectech 8)

I'm glad we didn't scare you away with our enthusiasm!

 

I read that you're the 3rd owner and that both previous owners sold up as a result of buns in their respective ovens... that's tempting fate methinks! I don't know if I really want one now...

 

Looking forward to seeing your machine in the future :)

 

BTW we do have a couple of other V6 owners on the member list - just that none of them reside in Oz :(

 

Cheers, Dish.

Welcome!!!!!!!

 

I'm so excited to hear that there is a V6 in Australia! Do you work on it yourself? Or are you heading for the local Renault Service department?

 

That is definitely a prized possession! Keep her/him safe! Can't wait to see some more photos, in particular moving ones.

 

I think even the local magazines would go photo happy if they saw your car in Australia. I can just see it... the headlines of Motor Magazine next month "Clio V6 test mule with old Clio body seen testing in SA".

 

I'm dreaming of the day I could do the same and import one! Second dream is to hear your car accelerate away one day... mmmmmmmm

Meh All this V6 Talk....

 

If I want a Quick 6 Cylinder Car with 2 seats, I'd buy an XR6 Turbo Ute...................................................

WOW WOW WOW!! Awesome dude, I have seen these Phenminal things on Video, to me they are like the Unicorn of the Renault World. I'm a jealous boy!

Congrats on having this car mate, Very Very exciting, Hopefully one day I can see it!

 

WEEEELCOME!!!!

 

Cheers

Thanks again for the warm welcome.

 

Insurance hasn't been to bad (less than my STi) as we have a vintage car that has been registered with Shannons for more than 15 years and the guy at Shannons uses the V6 when playing Gran Tourismo so we got a good deal.

 

I get about 25mpg (work it out yourself) - not to bad, but at times i think it's not reading true - well at least thats what my wallet is saying.

 

Yes it does handle a little like an old 911 - i have taken it around Nurburgring and all i can say is - F*** - good fun living on the edge!

 

Yes the car is cursed and i'm thinking of hiring it out as a baby making device - the first owners wife fell preg 1000miles into ownership - the second owners wife 1month into ownership and my wife fell preg 2 months into ownership - some would say it's not a good family car but i say it's the best - just going for a drive love.

 

Cheers

 

Oh yes the sound of the V6 trying to escape from the rear is truely one of the best sounds i've ever heard - hey David

LOL at that comment.

 

PS Cursed :wink: i'm sure if/or when you get the urge to offload her you'll have a line a mile long with some going a long way out. You will be able to name your price.

Yep. It sounded fairly impressive when you left the servo afterwards too.

 

I didn't hear a thing when you over took me before pulling over though- I take it you weren't full throttle when you went past? (BTW I was doing my normal slow driving until the engine is fully warmed up, I don't always drive like a Grandma!) :lol:

 

So what did you think of the 182 Cup in comparison?

You're very lucky to have had a drive of Corey's V6 Dave! I wasn't going to say anything...but Corey mentioned it first!!! :)

I wouldn't be able to compare - they are two very different animals - but both great fun! Your car felt much more nimble and chuckable. Even though i did: it felt like you could show it very little respect and it would take it all on the chin, the v6 on the other hand is a creature that demands respect as once it lets go it's very hard to catch - but i guess thats where the fun is - finding those limits.

 

Peace

The main thing I noticed was how hard the ride in the V6 is even compared to the Cup suspension. Also, mine has a habit of the front end "bobbing" around on rougher roads, whereas the V6 was the opposite with the rear end doing the "bobbing" and the front riding smoothly in comparison. Obviously an effect of engine weight being at the oppostie ends. It also felt very well planted on the road- even more so than a normal RSC (and that's really saying something because a normal RSC is more confidence inspiring on the open road than any other car I've driven, they feel a lot bigger than they are.)

 

I only floored it briefly in second (silly me!) so didn't really get much of a feel of the power difference. Next time I'd like to be a passenger with you driving Corey :wink:.

 

Has your V6 got ESP Corey? If it's like a 182 it would allow plenty of fun before kicking in.

Hi Corey (excuse me Dave I must say hi!) - welcome aboard and I too am sorry I missed you last week at Collingrove. Looking frwds to meeting you. I was the guy who put the pics of your car up first on the site due to relentless peer pressure from the SA mob :roll: . Hope you don't mind...why you can run me off the road one day if you did!! :lol:

 

We must organise one of our local SA Sunday sessions and coffees soonish as it's been a while :)

 

Cheers,

 

Mase

Welcome, Corey! Great to have you on board after all the talk/sightings/etc. I was lucky enough to see and hear a mint V6 in the flesh in France earlier this year. Was the process of bringing the car out here easy/difficult and cheap/expensive? You obviously thought that it was worth doing. How easily have you managed with parts sourcing?
