So I said I'd throw together a thread for the car, and here it is! So where to begin; I was actually eyeing up RB, GW and UR 197's after having written off my sport yellow Megane 250 cup. I was never keen on 200 front ends in the beginning, but decided to see if there was any AG 200's around as I'm all about that yobo factor, and the shape of the Megane had warmed me up to the front of the 200. I'd seen one online, which was a complete dog, and the only one other which was a high miles cup (tbf the dog was also the same mileage). Standard, nothing had been done to it, black speedlines, no spoiler, AC. I wasn't fussed for Recaros, I thought they were overrated personally having had them in the Megane. 85,000 miles, 1 owner, FSH, which meant it also had the cambelt done! Obviously was a bit anxious with it being a high miler, but made a trip by train from Manchester to Broxbourne to view the car. Drove it, absolutely no synchro issues, no play in the joints, exhaust wasn't blowing either. Bought it and left. Forgive the quality of this image, but it's the only one I have just after buying it and then making the drive home: So after getting home, black diamonds on! (black diamond crew represent) I then very quickly sought to get a new exhaust and opted for the Scoprion non-res as that's what I had on my Meg. I forgot how much louder it would be on a NA car, but I love it! Also fitted some silver visions and an ITG panel filter. (I'm all about the little touches as you'll see). Noises The dreaded flexis went not long after, and I bought a second hand manifold and had that welded up and fitted.. Was like this for a few months, then decided to get myself a sprint spoiler, was never really into the trolley look of the cup spoiler.. Whilst getting that painted up, got the the door strips painted to match, and the handles and wing mirrors done in black, and bought some black center caps to top it off. Also painted the bullets with the AG writing myself. About a month after, it had it's first MOT and it had a list of advisories (no fail), so when I was going abroad, left the car with my local garage and had them carry out a slew of work and fit a load of goodies which I had been buying up till that point. New rear caliper New front shocks New gearbox oil and seals Mintex m1144 all round H&R springs 20mm Eibach spacers HEL braided lines in green Door shut rubbers replaced Aircon regass x2 AD08R's fitted to the front So to say the least when I got the car back it felt transformed, the combo of the AD08R and the H&R made my commute drive amazing, I drive 4-5 miles in town then 4-5 miles of windy B road at 5:30am, bliss! I actually had a set of TPI studs to go on too, but they don't fit the holes on the Renault wheels where the unthreaded part is. Then some small detail bits the following weekend: New carpets New pedals Smaller aerial Steering wheel insert New plain reg plates and a Sprint Booster, which I get asked about all the time, to the point I have a 3 paragraph copy and paste reply saved, basically I found the car hard/laggy to rev match and heel/toe compared to the Meg 250, and it felt unresponsive, this fixed all my issues.
