    Finally picked up the replacement for the 175, no plans as yet though I am thinking of sticking on the R175 MEG plate in memory of it's predecessor :blush:

  4. Looks good mate, best colour for the mk3's imo. What on earth is going on with that car in the background in the first picture lol?

    Hahaha! I have no idea, I never noticed that :tearsofjoy:
     
  6. Smart. I look forward to updates and mods, don't resist.

    Whats the insurance like compared to dci?

    £96 more a year which makes it £579, not too bad. See if they put it up next year after the claim.


    What's peoples thoughts on the registration. I was going to sell but noticed Dawn had put her R26 one on her 275. Made me think why not? I've also become quite attached to the number 175 oddly.

    First proper clean, a coat of Fusso and removed the Megane badge on the rear, much better.

    You should have looked how much them badges cost new, people on cliosports are always gagging for them

  20. Do mean that the rs came away the rest of it?

    The RS badge is still on, just the Megane lettering has been removed.

  22. ^ I think you guys are taking about two different badges.

    I've never understood this - kinda like being embarrassed about your car. I hated when BMW started the trend of offering cars without rear badges. Ruins a school boys fun :grimacing:

  24. I took the Megane lettering off my boot as well. It was way too big and out of place according to me. I've kept the RS badge though.

    I got the black covers for the Renault diamonds and was planning to wrap the front and rear RS badges to match but I've never got round to doing it.

    I have a OG 250 as well. Seems to be the most common colour?
     
  25. I'm not sure that's it's the most common colour. They stopped offering it on the 275's apparently because of lack of take-up.

    Renault used to have a heritage site that all the RS models listed with options, colours & sales numbers, but they took it down for some reason.

  27. I have that saved as a document on this PC - my own car is the one used for the Oyster Trophy pic.

  28. Oh okay, everyone I've seen on the road, seems to be OG. But I haven't seen that many.

    Got the old girls plate on now. No one showed interest so why not.

    Such a simple mod but makes a big difference, a bit of £3 6mm yellow tape.

  31. How easy was this to do, looking to do the same to mine?
     
  32. Gavin.

    Gavin. RSM Admin

    Took me all of about 5 minutes, if that.

    I was going to pry mine off the other day, but i wimped out, did not want to break any clips

    I didn't take it off mate, it's just 6mm yellow pinstripe. Cost about £3 on eBay for a roll.

    Finally had the wheels done last Friday, a tad darker shade than I'd have liked but so much of an improvement over the diamond cut finish.
