    Does it have to be a trophy? There is a very nice megane 275 cup s in k tech in liquid yellow. Maybe a bit pricey. Screenshot_20201116-215022_Chrome.jpg

  7. That ones looks pretty good.

    I don't think its a bad price given it has a lot of £££ of mods on it.

    I do wonder if it is a Cup-S as the advert does not say it is. Front splitter is painted. Also has Climate rather than AC. Had a lot of bits changed (even the Diff) so may have been a Nav that has ben upgraded.

    I waited a few years to get the right megane mate, no way I could sell it. Awesome cars. The right car will come along for you.

    That's a 265 with a cup-s sticker. The interior has piano black trim, 275's have a matte finish.

    You are right @Paddy80 it's actually says 265 on the advert lol!!
     
  17. My mate will be selling his liquid yellow trophy-r very shortly, what’s your budget?

    @wallace there is a megane trophy r for sale liquid yellow on facebook megane page if you are interested.
     
  19. Wow. Two yellow trophy r going up for sale at the same time. Bad timing.

    Original poster after a trophy. Maybe fancies an R but significantly different price point and practicality.

    Yeah I seen that!! You hardly see any and then they start appearing at the same time.
     
  21. There’s only 3 yellow trophy R’s in the country!
    My mates putting his on hold until the Facebook one sells.

  22. Wise move. I am not on Facebook . What's that one up for.

    When there were a few for sale they seemed to come down to 25k. Now people just put up and ask what theg want. R26r seems to have levelled off af 20k but some people ask alot more.

  23. One on Facebook is up for 26.5k I believe.
     
  24. Not a bad price although I am sure one of the last time one of the yellow cars went up it was well over 40k miles.

    Which is well used and quite devaluing for the type of car it is.

    If there is only 3 of them in the uk in that colour they are going to be some investment I would say. They are fantastic cars out the box.

    They r26r do certainly hold there price I have been keeping a close eye on them. I was at knockhill last sunday out in one of my friends megane 225 its had alot of work done too it and is running about 370bhp was well impressed with it on track very quick capable car. 20200717_185342.jpg
     
  27. To be honest there are not many yellow ones full stop. Given it was an expensive paint option and not many Megane RS made.

    Probably only 20-30 yellow Cup-S
    And 20 yellow regular Trophys.

    Did not realise there were that low numbers of the yellows made!! I wanted a megane for about 2-3 year and nearly bought my mates meg 250 back in may was a quick car was running about 320bhp. Glad I didnt now to be fair because I wouldnt have got the trophy it just came up at the perfect time.
     
  29. They were pretty much selling none by the end. How many left has about 80 Trophys & 120 Cup-S. Compared to say 500 Clio Trophy's that they sold back in the day.

    When you think of it well spec'd cars would have been well over £30k list (although good discounts available). But for that money people happier to buy a Golf R or Focus RS.

    Most people I go the trackdays with "very clued up guys" that have raced in the scottish motor racing championships absolutely rave about the megane. My friend neil said 100% it's the best front wheel drive car he has driven. He is mostly into his bmw m sport cars. When they went to the nurburgring zolder and spa on a week long track trip 2 years ago they said the meg was the car of the week it ran faultless all week. I have only been in one golf r that ran was over 400 BHP was a very quick car not been in a standard one.

    Screenshot_20201120-233250_Facebook.jpg that's the megane trophy r that i seen for sale couple of nights ago very nice car. Think it has 29k on it.
     
  32. That is nice. So tempted to get one to partner my cup s. Always fancied an r26r to partner my r26 lux back in the day.

    I generally buy my more extreme 2nd car for my wife as she only drives 3 days in 10 and does about 4k a year. Sits in the garage the rest of the time.

    We had a clio trophy and 182 full fat at the same time. also had a 330i and 130i at same time.

    The down side is if the cars are too similar in character there is no point in even driving the other car.

    What did you think of the 130! I was tempted by one before the megane ?
     
  34. Bit long in the tooth now. I got and 09 plate from a main dealer about 6 years ago. Never seen an 09 plate since. Struggled to sell. Sold to a dealer at 6pm on Friday and he had buyer already collecting on Sat at 9am. Probably be worth similar money now if I had it,

    Last of the n.a. straight six. Epic engine in some ways better all round engind than m car. Great performance, noise. Did 36 mpg on run.

    Rest of car did not match up.

    So pretty much the exact opposite of meg where I would say the engine is the weakest element in an astounding package.

    Sounds like a decent car let down by its chassis ? How do you think that with the meg ? You expect more power or you heard of engines failing ? @NotaDiesel!!!
