    Oh 100% the running costs are much much more but if you're smart and buy a good car it's not too bad, although seeing how much they are going up in value I'd risk a cheaper one haha

    I buy cars to abuse the monkeys out of them not to see if they are going to go up in value.I looked at M3's a few years ago it would have added 6k a year to my running costs

    They're great cars the T220 Micah. Not surprised you love it.
    Very different to the angry, raw mk3.
    Whatever floats your boat.
    Hope you get what you need sale wise for your 200... my guess is unfortunately you might not as market is still going down imo.
    Keep us all posted. And good luck!

    Yeah I'd never buy cars based on the value going up but it's quite a nice side thing I think

    @Micah

    If you've fallen out of love with the Mk3 and have fallen in love with the Mk4, there's really nothing you can do about it mate. There's no question it's a much better car in almost every way. Plus it's certainly quicker. I'd not be unhappy owning one for absolute certain.

    I know I've said this in SMS already but very best of luck making the move, hope it all goes smoothly for you.

    I also hope you go white, with white wheels and a cup spoiler! :wink:

    Very kind words Mes, thank you. This is what I drove, and they do look nice from certain angles. I’m still mulling over the deal to be honest...

    totally understand why you'd want one, micah.
    if they'd just made it with a fat arse like my mk3, i'd probably would have bought one.

    looks like renault learned their lesson, since it looks like the mk4 megane RS has a wider body than the non-RS model.

    As above, totally understandable why you're going for the mk4 Micah. They are awesome cars - I was hugely impressed when @Chris took me for a blast in his, pre-remap (so I can only imagine what it's like now :smile: ). Plus there were a lot of smiles and praise on the Dales run when passenger rides were being handed out... The looks might not be everyone's cup of tea, but that's more because Renault hit the nail so firmly on the head with the looks of the mk3.

    We all know that moment when we 'fall out of love' with a car and it's time to move on - for whatever reasons they may be. We can try and hold on, but ultimately we have to take that step.

    Best of luck with it all Micah - both with the sale of the 200 and finding a good deal on the new whip :wink:
