Default New car Renaultsport Megane 250

So after a trip to nurburgring in my TT I decided I needed something fun and fast again amd after almost buying another cooper s I thought to myself "why is almost every other car around here a porsche an m3 or a megane" looking at m3s and meganes the choice was made and the day I got home I bought my new toy which dare I say would run rings around my old 221whp cooper s. Now I don't think you guy get these on the other side of the pond but these hold the fwd lap record around the ring (or did until new type r)

2010 cup car (cup come with proper diff amd different discs)
Ktec front mount intercooler
3" downpipe
Milltek exhaust
Panel filter
Remap
291 bhp 320lbs torque (maps not great so down on power and torque but is booked in for the gurus for these cars over here)


Yesterday I bought genuine enkie nt03 wheels with 235/40/18 federal 595 rrs-r tyres and I'll be ordering some decent coilovers asap

If the price startles you, that's quite a competitive price down here
