Oh, and a cosmetic mod. Installed a front splitter. Same as what the 182 Trophy has, except I got mine from Skoda in Newmarket. The ones for the Fabia fit perfect with just a wee trim off the ends and a fraction of the cost of the Renault one :-)

ohhhhh what does it look like Phil?

after missing out on three yellow renaults, i finally got my hands on one.

2015 rs265 in liquid yellow
nz new, finance company repo, being sold through turners (big thanks to nik for the tip).
38,000km, recaros, 19in.

drove back last night through the huge storm - it had everything - wind, rain, lightning, thunder, hail, fog !
the car was a joy to drive despite being on a mix of original potenzas and no-name chinese tyres.

complete with all manuals etc. but with no record of ever being serviced !
booked in next week.

then will attend to a few cosmetic issues - dings, scuffs, scratches.

tinypic appears to have crapped out, no pix  :( 

alternative supplier to the rescue !

That is nice.
For servicing, is there a Renault agency in Palmy?

I hope you have plenty of spare time because I do not envy you cleaning those wheels.

That should do the business.
I like the red band around the rim.

Very nice!! I’m on a set of PS4’s and it made a huge difference on the R26. I can only imagine how good those tyres will be. Great choice on colour too :)
