Tyre puncture!

Posted 16th May 2008 at 00:57 by Simo (Simo' Says...)

On the way home from work this evening I had to pop into a garage for fuel... I was literally running in fumes

On the way out of the garage, 3 guys were admiring my car, They'd done their homework and were quoting all sorts of Megane R26 stuff from the mag's, etc.

So... I drove off from the garage feeling proud of the motor. Straight away I heard a tapping coming from the passengers side front wheel. The type of noise a stone makes when its lodged in the tyre tread.

On the way home, I tried a few moves to dis-lodge the stone, but it wasn't having...

Storm Trooper

I've had the new Megane for 2 weeks come tomorrow afternoon and I'm still enjoying it! The car's now covered 348 miles and cost quite a bit in fuel. Its currently averaging 24.1 miles per gallon, which is much better than the Turbo VTS, so its not all bad! Just a pity fuel is so expensive... £1.07 per litre I paid this afternoon!

The engine is pretty fruity and muchos fun when the turbo kicks, but if I'm honest, I'm getting a little too used to it already RS Tuning do a nice little ECU upgrade for about £400, which puts the power upto approx. 260bhp, which is nice...

New Motor...

Posted 30th March 2008 at 16:18 by Simo (Simo' Says...)

As posted within my Car Dilema blog, I really needed to try and sort out a new car before going back to work tomorrow!

I've been busy ever snce getting back from holiday looking for a car. After considering lots of different models, a random decision was made to get a Renauilt!

First I test drive a Clio 197 Cup, which was really nice to drive. A quick and solid hot hatch! The car that had caught my eye though, was sitting pretty in the showroom. A Glacier white Megane RenaultSport F1 R26.

I took a black R26 out for a spin and loved it! Again, the feel...
