    Default My Megane Sport - finally here, finally mine.

    After a three month wait my arctic-blue Megane 225 is finally here. Arctic blue, and a piece of Renault driving perfection.

    The car sat on the lot for nearly three weeks 'cause it arrived early and I hadn't sorted out my finance... But now it's MINE!!

    So where's a good place in Brisbane to wind it up a little? =D

    See if you can scam a copy of the Renault Expo run route. That would be perfect for packing a few early ks on the car. Some nice open roads mixed in with curves, hiils and dales to bed the engine in nicely.

    Hey NFG,
    I had a feeling you might have cancelled your order, as things went a bit quiet at one stage. I think I might have seen your 225 in the parking lot at Springwood, either way I saw a sweet looking blue one last week, parked down the side waiting for someone to come and collect.

    Drive wise, as Simon suggested you can't go past a spin up Mt Glorious. I went up ther last weekend for a strap and loved every bit of it. Mt Tamborine isn't a bad run either.

    Yeah, that was mine. What a bloody dream to drive. I'll post a review in a few minutes, and maybe some pics of the bug-covered front end. =D

    Interestingly the dealer didn't tell me anything like that, nor did I notice anything in all the documentation I read. If I hadn't seen it on another forum I'd never have known not to rev the snot out of it. As it is I may have exceeded the recommended boundary (why do they hide it in a small paragraph 40 pages into the manual?) by a hair.

    Arguably, so long as the oil is warmed up well, it's actually beneficial to stretch your car's legs a little when it's new to facilitate better running in and piston ring sealing.

    Don't maintain constant speeds for an extended period of time when the car is new.

    Yes i'm not to sure about it either, it is in the manual, but it has also been in every car manual ever produced.
    I mean the cars dont have GM blue 202 motors in them where measurements of clearance and tolerance are "near enough is good enough" or "she'll be right mate". You would hope with todays technology an engine is right from the factory, and as Pug307 said the only thing we should really watch out for is holding it at a constant speed/rev.

    I will still probably take it easy for the 650 k's i have left to go....well i will at least refrain from revving it over 5.5K!
