    Just about to collect my new (to me) 275-R, Black with Red trimmings. Thought I should join up to gain learn from everyone’s wisdom and experience.

    The new car is replacing a Clio III 200 Cup full fat, which I loved....but the siren call of forced induction, LSD and light weight was too strong to resist. Pics in a week or so.

    :smiley: “Fat” is always a relative term: you’re ‘fat’, I’m ‘average’...and my wife is always ‘slim’ :smiley:

    This happened today. Flew from Canberra to Melbourne, then drove back (700km). Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to take the scenic twisty route, so it was a boring trip on the tightly speed-controlled motorway. The Trophy-R is not the best long-distance tourer...but that isn’t its purpose...or my intention!

    Spent a little time washing, claybaring and sealing the paintwork, in the vain hope that it’ll be easier to keep clean. At least I like the immediate outcome!

    Nope — it has the full-fat, anti-stealth decor
