My new RS250

Discussion in 'Detailing' started by Gareth, Sep 8, 2019.

  1. After 11 years or more when I last had a Renaultsport (Ph1 172).

    I picked up this stunning Red RS250 yesterday.
    The garage I bought it from had it detailed for me which I wasn’t expecting.
    I have used 3/4 of a tank already just enjoying being back in an RS again.

    I have already ordered a straight pipe to do the mid box chop.

    I will be posting more regularly with updates and pictures from drives out.

  2. That looks ace.
  3. Thanks mate.

    I did the mid box chop on it yesterday morning. Such a good modification for £45. Sounds much better and not over the top.
    Ordered some new front discs and pads as they were dirt cheap from eBay.
  4. Did that on the Mégane 225 I owned.

    These cars are great value for money these days.
  5. Can’t decide whether to remove the Megane lettering on the rear or not?
  6. Hate chrome badges, do it :tongueout:

  7. I managed to get a brand new set of Brembo grooves discs and EBC Yellow stuff pads for £165 :smile:
    Will sell the pads as I’ve heard they are worse than OEM.
  8. Cleaned the car for the first time since I bought it 2 weeks ago.

    The car was ceramic coated just before I bought it so cleaning it is a breeze. Just snow foamed, rinse, iron-x, rinse, wash and waxed with Dodo Juice Hard Candy.
    She comes up amazingly well.

    I had some binding on the rear brakes which I sorted by cleaning the slider pins on the callipers.
    Getting the passenger side wheel refurbed on Tuesday as I had to avoid a girl speeding on my road just as I was turning into my drive!
  9. Have a soft spot for the 250's in red... Looks ace! get them chrome badges off and some black badges on :sunglasses:

  10. Red is the best colour in the RS in my opinion.
    I’ve been debating about taking the lettering off the boot but keep changing my mind.

    I was in same boat as you mate, but i did a side by side comparison with one at a track day and personally i think it does look better with the lettering on.
  12. I removed mine a few weeks back. Regretting it now ha.
    It looks better with when it’s clean but better without when dirty.
  13. Nice Gareth
