Ash's Megane 265 Trophy

Hi guys,

I'm back again!

Picked up my new car today... kept it RenaultSport and went for a Megane 265 Trophy in Liquid Yellow! @SharkyUK this is what I was on my way to view when I went past you on the A34 on Monday!

It is a fairly big spec, some of you might even know or recognise the car.

I won't list all the mods now, but the highlights are:

Hybrid Turbo
Uprated Injectors
RS Tuning Map
Zero Point One Shifter
Corbeau Carbon Kevlar Buckets & Harnesses
OZ Ultraleggera Alloys
Nankang NS2-R Tyres
BC Racing Coilovers with Adjustable Top Mounts
Trophy R Rear Brace
Rear Seats Removed

One of only 50 of the 265 Trophy's built, and then only so many (not sure exactly how many!) of those were Liquid Yellow.

I have only got pictures from the previous owner for now, but will get some more up when I get a chance to take a few of my own!

Thanks to @Davyy for taking me up in his amazing Megane to collect it.

I have a small list of things I would gradually like to do:

Sabelt Wheel (maybe)
Stud & Nut Wheel Kit
Clutch Valve Delete Kit
Forge Actuator
Battery Relocation Kit
Uprated HD Ball Joint Kit
Uprated Recirc Valve (currently runs a blanking plate)

Also, before anybody else mentions it, yes I know the Trophy rear quarter decals are not fitted correctly (they should go up to the top of the car!). I will be sourcing a replacement set imminently to satisfy my OCD!

Thought I would also mention that between owning the Ph1 (which sold 6-7 weeks ago now) and this Megane, I actually bought a very high spec Monaco Blue 172 which was advertised on this site! I still have it, so keep any eye out in the classifieds as it will be getting advertised in the next few days. It is a great car... here is a couple of pictures of it; the last one was taken this morning next to @Davyy lovely new Megane.




Anyway... pictures of the Megane!!!

When I was younger, it was the Monaco blue 172 that made me want an RS clio. That looks great with the turinis etc. I have a Megane 250, based about 5 minutes from hindhead. We should get a meet sorted at some point. Megane looks great (apart from the sticker 😉).

That’s lovely mate.

I have been thinking about one as my next car but has to be on coilovers as it makes the car sit so nice!

@Ash J - congratulations buddy, that looks superb and a real nice spec, too. Enjoy it fella. I'll keep an eye out for you the next time I'm on the A34 (or in that area!)

Looks beautiful, i can't wait for you to go through every detail on this car! Loved your previous GTA etc.
That looks properly nice!!

I'd sack the side graphics off personally. And I like the steering wheel how it is.

FYI The Trophy at that age didn’t have the large decals on the rear quarter. Just on the front lip and doors.
They’re from the 275 Trophy.

Appreciate all the nice comments everybody!

I know you won't believe me, but this one is a keeper! 😅 I have been wanting one for a while but they don't often come up with a spec like this one.

Thanks mate. At first I thought the same about the side graphics, but they have actually really grown on me and will be staying!

As for the wheel, I agree as it looks lovely as it is. However, it is still a little too large for my liking and does not give the direct feeling of an aftermarket wheel. So I am undecided on what to do. We will see! I love the way it looks now, but would prefer the feel of a Sabelt; I will decide over the coming months what to do.

Yes fully aware the 265 Trophy did not come with the rear decals 👍 as I mentioned above, at first I was not a fan of them (because of the very reason you mention; they only came on 275 Trophy's) but they have really grown on me so will be staying at the moment.

There were 38 LY Trophy’s sold and 12 Diamond Black.
The only option from memory on the LY was a black painted roof.

That is seriously nice. Love when a Meg is dropped a little - your sits lovely and the mods will make it a proper weapon i’m Sure

Nothing much to update at the moment, and the weather has been pretty rubbish which is less than ideal when running Nankang NS2-R’s!

Have made my first parts purchase for the Megane though... a set of brake bells and rotors came up for sale for a good price, barely used and in great condition. They turned up today, and they look epic!

Now I need to get on and order some nice pads to match... have decided to go with Carbon Lorraine RC5+ so will get them ordered soon.

Then I can get it all fitted along with the rear braided hoses I have (already running braided hoses at the front, but rears were not done as they are a bit more of a pain in the arse to fit apparently) and a flush with some decent brake fluid.
