Hi Bryan
that a great vid thanks. I may not be mad after all :-)

Heres a pic from the Pug I had in 2014 doing the Country Gents Hawkswood hill climb. Its a great event of mainly European cars. I don't think there are many sealed hill climbs you can do in a road car without a cage. 

cheers J

The link above has been posted on here before.

"Context" as you say, or horses for courses.

Watch the reaction to the big wallow on one section of road and how the 205 gives a little jiggle while the 911 suffers from all the mass hanging out the back.

Hi Dr Pepper, good to know Im not certifiable. I'll share another insight (or confusion)...

Ive spent a year with a 996 Turbo manual and found it maybe less fun round the hills than the 306XSi I had prior. All the magazine and internet reading would say that model 911 is a do all icon... and the  XSi, is the soft version of a car that you wouldn't compare.

I found this pretty confusing. If I can offer any thoughts of value on this, it  is about "context". The 911 was heavy of controls and stiff, but great on wide open roads. The XSi was great for caning around town or the tight hill roads  - both of which in Christchurch are rougher than you would find anywhere.

Thanks guys,

Have looked seriously into getting some frames/race seats for it. That is however a slippery slope to stripped racecar dreaming...

I am trying to find shipping options for a set of Rallye seats from Dunedin to Akl. But damn $$$.

Anyone want to sell me some other go fast parts while I am irresponsibly shelling out $$ for an old french gofast wreck.
I have two bucket seats and 5pt belts if you decide to go that way.

Welcome Gabriel, to NZ & Fastfrogs.

There's a few Renault fans on here - check out the recommended suppliers under General Discussion and some of the more recent project threads.

Hello! My name is Gabriel and I'm from Brazil. I am currently living in Auckland and will be here for 6 months.
I'm a fan of French cars, I already had a DS3 tuned and I currently have a 1.6 clio (k4m) that I plan to tune too when I go back to Brazil.

So I will be very grateful for tips from where (place or site) to buy parts for Renault.

NZ is very difficult to find parts such as those, but luckily parts such as those are light and not so massive which makes it generally viable to search for parts on Ebay in the UK and europe then have them shipped to New Zealand. This is how i sourced about 90% of parts for my 205 :)

Hey mate, just wanted to provide some insight as I've literally done the same thing. Have had a few Type R's, DB8 & currently an EK9 and had the same thing, too crash ride making it not so tractable with power delivery, recently replaced it with a ph1 172 and its a whole different animal. Quiet and sedate in comparison, almost luxury, mind you my civic was on coilovers so had a mega hard ride. Also has a lot more torque so its easier to drive quickly without having to thrash it to the redline screaming ya tits off, all in all very happy  ;D

Hi there,

 I recently got a front bumber of ebay cost about 180 all up including delivery from the uk. It arrived pretty quickly and it seems pretty good quality to me. It's from a company called NCP. The black option matched my 91 xs nicely, they also do the grey mark 1 version. You'll find the odd interior part on ebay too but some things are quite expensive for what they are.
