picked this bad boy up yesterday as a replacement for the TT (which I've still got) as I wanted something more driver focused and after getting back from nurburgring and seeing every other car being a megane rs I thought I'd buy one.

2010 megane rs250 cup pack
Recaros
Ktec racing intercooler
3"downpipe
Miltek cat back
Forge re circ valve
Map
H&R spring
20mm spacers
Rs monitor

Car is absolutely amazing to drive and only other plans are proper coilovers (maybe kw clubsports) and a set of 18s

Do I prefer it to my r53? Yes!! Simple as that. It's such a pleasure to drive and at the touch of a button (rs monitor allows torque settings to be changed according to throttle position) it becomes an animal and I absolutely love it

Looks spot on mate! Have always liked the idea of a mental Renault.

I know exactly what you mean re preferring it to your Mini. Having the same thoughts here :confused1:

I think driving the CSL for the summer is going to kill the enjoyment of the Mini.

I've stood by that my mini was going to be very very hard to best but one drive in this and it's just different class and it does it so effortlessly

Stunning RS. I have a soft spot for fast Renaults, and your car is cracking looking.

Looks like it has a rear wiper delete already done?

Good colour choice mate I loved mine is capsicum, deffinatly need to get the black 18"s tho think they look so much better than The cut face 19"s.

Defiantly one of those cars I'd love to own again at some point in the future also anybody looking to get one deffinatly get the RS monitor its 100% worth it for the throttle mapping feature.

Yer it's an absolute riot! Its been mapped by ktec but I'm fully aware of the stories about the mapper they have there and mone seems down on.power for the mods it has, well the torque.

Mine made 291bhp and 320lbs of torque but speaking to guys on rsmegane they say it should he more like 300-310bhp and 360-370lbs of torque So I'll be going to rstuning as they seem to be the go to guys for the megane

Ive got a TomTom map of Belgium on my desk at work if you'd like it?

Probably has better fueling info on it than anything that Ktec could create :lol:

Lovely cars, just get it to RS Tuning asap, i.e. before it blows up.
Hahahaha that's all I've been hearing hence been speaking to Paul about getting her sorted

Stunning bit of kit Matt, the only thing I don't like are the wheels they look like a Halfords / Wolfrace collaboration.

It really is James best car I've owned and to think it's about 30-50lbs of torque down on what it should be makes me think wtf will it be like when it's mapped properly. Yer the wheels spent nice haha I'm after a set of these in 18s
K-Tec Racing - Renault Tuning Styling Motorsport Specialists

Then a set of ohlins or kw clubsports
