    my new toy...

    hi guys... i went today to the bmw, renault, alfa,mini dealer that is a friend of mine ,to say hi , i saw this megane rs sitting in the showroom, i liked the look, he told me to go and try it, i did, i found it much superior in every aspect to my modded mini cooper S , half an hour later ,and after an AMAZING deal , went home with it ...
    i will post detailed impressions later, but first thing that i loved about this car is that it reminded me of my previous lancia integrale, same type of engine, meaning a high pressure turbo ( 1.1 bar) , much better IMO than the currend trend of low pressure turbo a la golf gti...

    Re: my new toy...

    yes its a free option when you order leather interior. BTW its orange stitching and seatbelts

    Re: my new toy...

    marakji, dont stop on the orange seatbelts and stitching .... i feel it coming
    i love the color but hate the guy!

    Re: my new toy...

    it's a free option, like dhayek said... free from the free tayar! hehehe

    Re: my new toy...

    It looks great. I'm curious how the cornering is compared to the S...

    I'm envious of the options you have in Europe for this range of cars (Megane, Clio, Focus RS) compared to America where there is very little

    you are right for the options, these cars are very well equipped, my megane has: panoramic glass roof, all leather, xenons, rain sensor,light sensor, tyre pressure monitoring system, auto diming mirrors,retractable mirrors, colored stitching,colored seat belts,cruise control,speed limiter,18 inch black wheels etc..
    the cornering is at least as good as the S , it has more of a rally car behavior

    Re: my new toy...

    That's a really sweet ride. I wish Renault were in the USA. But don't go criticizing the GTI Mine has been good to me so far.

    Re: my new toy...

    Congrats Dimitri.. a very beautiful car indeed.. Enjoy it in good health buddy.

    Re: my new toy...

    very nice and the big butt don't look so big in black

    Re: my new toy...

    Congrats Dmitri , i am sure it is one of the enjoying car.

    Drive it with fun bro.

    Btw front fog lights-----> 997 TT

    Re: my new toy...

    Congrats Dimitri very cool looking car indeed.

    thanks all!!
    gti is a nice car, had one last summer..but couldnt get used to the turbo that stops blowing air @ 4k rpm... i am not criticizing , just giving a humble opinion

    Re: my new toy...

    Dimitri, that looks pretty sweet, I must say!
    I tried to find the specs on the car, but we dont have this model/version in Denmark.
    It's the F1 version, right?
    230 BHP, 310nm, 0-100 in 6.5 secs, 236km/h v-max.
    Turbocharged, 4 cyl...and front wheel drive?
    Correct me if I'm wrong and please give us some more infor and pictures of your new baby

    Let's also hear some more driving impressions.
    Are u going to track the car?

    Re: my new toy...

    Its beautiful Dimitri..even with orange seatbelts! They seem to work well with the its colors. Its a sharp looking car.

    Re: my new toy...

    It looks like it would be a blast to drive.I would love to test drive one.

    Re: my new toy...

    Very cool- looks like great fun! I like the interior a lot!!!

    Congratulations!

    Re: my new toy...

    Congrats Dimitri! Those things are a lot of fun

    Re: my new toy...

    I always wondered what that car was realy like to drive. The french car have a reputation to have fun chassis, but I have never tried it realy.
    How about all that power to the front wheels ?

    yes these are the specs.. the f1 version comes with the same tech specs but with stripes on the bumpers, specific blue or yellow color, stiffer suspension(very track oriented) and less options..
    the chassis is great on those cars, very precise,and the tail likes to go sideways but comes back to its place when you want via the steering wheel. it also has big brembo brakes with a very good stopping power .but what i like most is the turbo boost, you really feel the 1.1 bar.
    thats a pic of the f1 team version

    you are right about the power, you should never floor it unless you firmly hold the steering wheel..
