Howdi all I haven't long been joined up to the forum after buying my very first Renault Megane 225 Trophy. I've been a VW man most of my life and probably owned the whole range. Done all the VW shows and I've done 2 full nut & bolt concours rebuilds on a Mk1 and Mk2 Golf GTI which took nearly 2 years for each one to complete but at 36 I fancied something more modern and the power to match so decided on the 225 Sport as they are within my budget. I looked at various ones but nothing stood out, either too mint for me not to tinker with or dog rough and beyond my talents ha ha. I wanted something that wasn't mint and that's when I come across this Trophy edition. It's had a hard life yet only done 65k with all mots and part, if not full history minus a few receipts. With it being a rare/1 of 500 I had to have it and save it from the clutches of someone ruining it to the ground and to the scrap heap. Anyway after a very fun drive home with lots of right foot action, out came the clipboard and I went around it with a fine tooth combe. Started inside and worked out. It needs: Interior: Full detail inside. New interior heater Blower Motor. ESP/ASR light on so presume it's ABS sensors?? Will fit 4 new ones. Service light is on. Indicators don't disengage on there own? Radio/cd player faulty. Going to get a double din set up. All carbon effect trim parts to be hydro dipped to freshen up or flocked in a dark OEM grey. Steering wheel & gear knob sent for recovering. R26 front recaro's & rear seats. Got the rears already. Parcel shelf support clips Spare wheel is missing Glove box light?? Is there supposed to be one?? The OBD port cover is missing. Absolutely gutted as the build no plaque was not there either. Anyone know if it can be replaced?? Do Renault do replacements?? Exterior: New correct front bumper - £225 from Renault. New Front wings (Both are cracked at sill area) £95 each from Renault. Drivers sill repaired (Looks like an owner has run over something. Rear bumper painted. R26 Rear Spoiler. It will then be passed onto my mate for full paint correction. Wheels blasted and painted in original colour. Front & rear calipers sent off to Big Red for refurb and coated in red. Cooksport Lowering Springs That's all I can think of for now, there will be more bits to do as I go along. I also can't get the bonnet open. Was working fine when I view it but it won't open now. I can pull the lever at front grill but it still won't open?? Any ideas lads?? Also when I wash it and then take it for a drive I can hear water swishing around the front bulk head? Drives me mad?? Again any ideas what this could be?? Anyway, here's some pics when I got it home. This is exactly as I bought it.
