    Hi everyone my name’s Matt, owned my 265 since October 2016 so thought it’d be a good time to join here!

    Bought it stock with 50k miles on it, full Renault service and perfect MOT history, 19inch rims, half leather recaros. it now has 61k miles so due belts and pump in June!

    Since owning her had a few mods done;

    3’ KTR catback exhaust
    KTR induction kit
    K&R lowering springs
    20mm wheel spacers
    Larger turbo inlet pipe
    KTEC remap
    And self applied mudflaps due to living down a rural road!

    Now running at 312hp and 366lb/ft

    Was thinking of getting front sway bar and short shifter kit (not full lever system) before making my first trip to FCS in July as owned Renaults since passing my test!

    Will post a couple of pics below but I hope to use the forum a lot more! Thanks guys!

    Looks fantastic. Have you got the cloth Recaros? How do you find the handling with the spacers?

    Thankyou. And yes half leather half cloth so they don’t get stupidly hot in the summer! And combination of spacers and lowering springs has made cornering much more fun and responsive! I’d like to get front sway bar just to reduce roll a bit more though.
