    all of you must know me through the raider,

    well we've added another special edition to our fleet

    Renault Sport Megane Trophy #434

    Picked the car up on monday from Tom at Divine Automotive in Harrogate, genuine guy and very honest, got the car for a very good price too,

    about the Trophy,

    #434
    i.d. Arctic White
    Alcantara Seats & Steering Wheel
    Akrapovic
    Ohlin Coilovers
    Folding Heated Mirrors
    19" Speedline Turinis
    Michelin Pilot Super Sport
    EBC Yellow Stuff Pads
    26,000 Miles

    Every thing else completely standard,

    List of things to come,
    New brake calipers, current ones have a snapped bleed nipple and the last owner hasn't been too careful with a punch on the last set,

    Far cheaper to buy new and sell my old ones than get a refurb,

    Braided Lines
    Better Pads
    Brake Fluid
    Michelin Pilot Super Sports for the rear
    Private Reg & Clean Plates

    Hopefully Some ore pictures and progress coming soon, new calipers should be here early next week

    Very nice Glenn!
    I remember looking at this on PistonHeads or AutoTrader recently. I believe this is the second time they’ve sold it with the previous owner not having used it a great deal, and was going for a good price too.
    Having seen a few of these in the flesh now, this is the car to have, great spec and a sound investment.
    The only thing I’d be doing for now is removing those horrendous pads!
    Enjoy!

    Yeah it was on piston heads, I seen it and had to have it, I got a very substantial chunk of money of the asking price too, probably got one of the cheapest in the UK,

    Yeah they really are a great spec, I’m a sucker for a top spec limited edition

    Yeah they are certainly on the list don’t know how my post is showing up, but I did mention it, but my Tapatalk is ruining the post, but it’s fine on web view ?

    Yeah weird, I didn't see all that on Tapatalk.
    I always think these need a 3/4 plate at the front too, as it sits a bit too high and ruins the lines a bit. Massive fan of the Turini's too, and the Recaro's are the best they've ever done.

    Waiting on a 6 piece set of transparent red braided brake lines from Mitch at proline motorsport and a shipment of Motul RBF 660

    Also debadaged the back end, makes it look a lot cleaner, black badges will be coming

    Gave the car a full clay bar treatment, polished then sealed
