Hello meganesport.net people!! I'm wondering if there are some dealerships better than others at looking after the 225's? I'm planning on having mine serviced at worcester renault. Anyone have any experience of this dealerships sevice department?

Cheers and hello

Mike

well hopefully someone will have taken the leap of faith before me. They tell me that they have worked on other renault sports. I am right in thinking that they differ quite a bit from the bog standard model. In parts and oils etc. What oil are these things best fed with?

I've got a mate who owns a garage, he specializes in Renaults.

(He's manage to make a Renault 25 do 0-60 in about 4 seconds and will hit 180mph.)

Anyway - he said that the RenaultSport is as far removed from the standard Meg as a standard is from a Focus RS. Totally different cars. Guess it's just luck of the draw whether your dealer knows anything about them!

Just had mine serviced at Reg Vardy Renault, and although it says ELF in the back window of every Renault on the planet they filled it with Castrol magnatec 10/40 :roll:

ALL RenaultSport vehicles MUST be filled with 5W40.. Fully Synthetic..

Can't believe some dealers are still filling with 10W40 Semi Bulk oil..

I spoke to a friend in the technical dept today at work and he has said that its stated in the technical noted for the 225 engine we should be using 0/40 or 5/40. Thats the official line from RUK, hence im going back to the dealership tomorrow to have the new oil drained and refilled with 5/40
