  1. Hi all,

    Returning member here :blush:

    I previously owned a Oyster Grey Megane 265 Cup which I loved. I sold the car after only 14 months as we had a new arrival and I thought I would struggle to keep the Megane and also provide for a newborn! I missed it every day. I replaced it with a cherished Clio 200 but I never clicked with the car.

    This brings me to my latest purchase....It’s a 2016 Megane 275 Cup-S. I’m sure many will recognise the car and know the owner - I believe Andy is a member here but I don’t know his username! The car is fantastic and certainly was box fresh for me picking it up! It’s a credit to its former owner and I’m just really enjoying owning it!

    Bringing it home on the ferry;

    And my previous Renaultsports;

    First one was a Clio 197 R27 which I owned for almost 5 years..

    I then sold the Clio and bought the Megane 265. Carried out a few modifications including adding Speedline Turinis, Scorpion turbo back, Airtec FMIC and RS Tuning remap. I took the car to the Ring and Spa to really enjoy it and see what the cars are capable of (even though I probably only enjoyed about 70% of the cars potential! lol)

    The Megane went :worried: and was replaced by a Clio 200.

    As great a car as they are, I was left underwhelmed. Especially after coming from a 315bhp Megane back to a Clio at around 185bhp. I made do and enjoyed the Clio for around 18 months until the time came to pick up the Cup-S.

    Cheers!
