Thanks! Definitely will mate, don’t think I’d have half the Renault Sport knowledge I do without this forum!Looks lovely. Do stick around. As said it’s the decent people on here that make it one of the better forums still going.
Thanks! Getting on track is something I’ve always thought about doing, but never got around to/had the confidence to do.Nice looking meg you have there, definitely stick around..
Aside some summers drives will the meg venture out onto a track
Thanks!great motor had one very similar spec/colour...only bad thing i can say about them is the headlights are dreadful!!!
Hi.Well after nearly 6 years and 35,000+ miles of ownership the Clio has now gone to a new home - Had changed my mind and was going to keep it however the right buyer came along and a price was agreed just as the listing was ending on eBay and to be honest I needed the space.
Really was sad to see the car go, it had been fantastic over the years and was definitely one of the better ones with very few issues during my ownership

This free'd up some cash so I've set about with Project OEM+ Megane!
The megane came with the Steev alloys and while they have grown on me, I was never a huge fan of them. Luckily the same day I sold the Clio some Tibor alloys came up for sale and a deal was made.
So currently on order:
Michelin Pilot Sport 4
Mk4 Megane Centre Caps with the red ring (think these look great against Flame Red)
BMC Panel Filter
Tpi Black Bolts and Locking bolts
I will use the Steev's during Winter and then the Tibors in Summer - Also going to invest in a new trolley jack and torque wrench then I can easily swap the wheels over at home.
What's next -
Service and MOT at the end of March
Detailed and Ceramic Coated Professionally - The paintwork is in decent condition but want to get it in tip top shape and then protected.
Sports Cat/Intercooler/Remap (Will wait until insurance renewal in May and see what price the modified insurers are coming up with - Don't really need the extra power so not in any rush and want to do a bit more research)
Suspension upgrade possibly - Whilst I like the Tibor's better they don't fit the arches as well so looking in the the lowering springs & spacer options or might just go all out and go down the coilover route.
Couple of pictures from over the New Year

They definitely do look great, they break the black up a bit and go really well with flame red.I have a flame red meg 275 with tibors and saw another with these on and it looks awesome. Where are you getting yours and what price are they? Renault wanted >£25 each :'(
That is really good, I checked my local renault just as the the mk4 was being released and they said more than £25They definitely do look great, they break the black up a bit and go really well with flame red.
Got mine from RPD
£46 for the set (£11.50 each)
Considering the price of the other RS ones, these seem pretty well priced in my opinion. Mine arrived today and quality of them are great too.
Thanks!!View attachment 138375 Loving your 275! Just picked up a similar one myself after selling my Clio 200, although I'm jealous of your sunroof!
Mines like yours, Akrapovic exhaust, Leather Recaro's, RS Monitor and the optional Ohlin's! It's had an upgraded intercooler, intake and re-map by RS-Tuning and is pushing 305 BHP.
Such capable machines! Think they look great in Flame Red.
Great stuff, you definitely made the right decision! Finally got tyres on my Tibor’s and the centre caps really do finish them off! Now just need to find the time/weather to fit the wheels.
Congrats on the new purchase, brilliant choice and certainly has ALL the right options and mods - Flame Red really is brilliant, especially with you already having had a Liquid Yellow car.
Your 200 was going to take some beating - I even considered buying it myself when it was for sale as it was a fantastic example.
The sunroof was an option I’d never really looked for, but it was an added bonus and it really does brighten up the cabin.
Keep us updated! The Megane forums don’t seem half as active as here which is a shame.
Thank you, will do.
You're right, not much activity in the Megane 'scene'.
Thanks for this mate, plan on having them off again to strip and clean the calipers when the weather picks up so I'll do this then and hopefully prevent it from happening again.I also had this with the back wheels after they hadn't been off for just over 6 months (winter time), I used a bit of copper grease when putting them on and there have been no problems since
