My New Flame Red Megane Renaultsport 275 Cup-S

So this is my new Megane Renaultsport 275 Cup-S, finished in Flame Red metallic. I collected from Renault London West last month.

Always had a thing for Renaultsports, going back to the 80's. I was lucky enough to own a Clio Williams 2 in '95 and have owned quite a few RS's since, this Cup-S is my 5th Megane Renaultsport and replaces my Oyster Grey 250 Cup that I owned for 3 years.

The Cup-S is the last of the Mk 3 Megane RS to be made and production finishes this month, Mk 4 Megane RS not due until 2018.

I asked the dealer not to clean the car at all before collection, so I could carry out a full new car detail myself.

This turned out to be an excellent decision as the paint was in excellent condition.

I was delighted to be given the opportunity to try out the complete range of products from Primal Detail for this detail.



First up the wheels, washed on the car for now, plan was to take them off and seal them inside and out at a later date.



Wheels were rinsed thoroughly first, then Relentless wheel cleaner applied.











Rinsed thoroughly and then Bleed fallout remover applied to the face and inside of wheels. Left for a short while to react, gently agitated with a wheel brush.





Brand new, plenty of contaminants still removed from the wheels



Dissolve glue and tar remover also applied.



Tyres cleaned with Diversity APC, sprayed directly onto tyres, worked in with a detailing brush







After a trip home on the motorway from the dealers, some bugs on the front bumper and bonnet.

Swarm road grime and bug remover sprayed liberally over the front of the car, left to dwell for before jet washing off



Next up was to apply Whiteout snow foam, The whole car completely covered and left to dwell









Rinsed



Onto washing, Cleanse shampoo used







Washed using two bucket method




Now time for decontamination, firstly the whole car was sprayed with Bleed fall out/iron remover



Left to dwell



Rinsed then treated with Dissolve Tar & Glue remover



I decided to remove the MEGANE badge on the rear of the car, something I'd done on my previous Megane, leaving the rear of the car looking much cleaner.



Lettering warmed up, then gently prised away from the bodywork to remove





Remaining glue and residue removed using Dissolve



Much better



Rinsed and Into the garage for claying



Clayed using a fine grade clay, but being brand new and already decontaminated, hardly anything else came off.



Foamed again using Whiteout



Final rinse with a new Aqua Gleam water filter, using open ended hose





Dried off using a Metro side-kick blaster



Paintwork treated with Purge pre wax cleanser, gently worked in with a microfibre applicator pad using small circular motions. *



Once dried, easily buffed off with a brand new microfibre towel to leave a stunning finish ready for wax application.



Wax of choice was Envy, this was spread thinly and evenly across the paintwork and left to cure.







Once cured it was buffed off using another brand new microfibre towel. With the waxing finished, it was time for finishing touches and interior.

Exterior glass cleaned with Clarity glass cleaner



Stickers removed from interior windows and also cleaned with Clarity glass cleaner









Interior obviously in great shape as brand new, but all surfaces given a gentle wipe down using Diversity all purpose cleaner



Leather cleaned using Pelt fabric & leather cleaner, sprayed directly onto a microfibre towel and gently wiped over the front leather Recaro seats and the rear seats







I really want to keep the leather Recaro's looking like new and also try and minimise wear, so all leather treated with Taurus leather cream











Taurus was massaged in using a foam applicator, left to absorb into the leather for a few minutes, then buffed off with a plush microfibre towel

Leaving the interior looking like this





Exterior plastic and rubber treated with Wolf's Trim Coat Nano Dressing







As you'd expect with a new car, engine bay in good shape. Given a wipe over with a damp microfibre first.





One or two unsightly stickers removed as well



Under bonnet and other painted areas wiped down with Revive quick detailer



Metal parts treated with Sirius Metal Polish.*



Massaged in with a foam applicator, buffed off with a microfibre cloth and engine plastics dressed.









leaving the engine bay looking like this.



Outside for final checking and a final wipe down using Revive Quick Detailer





A couple of* days later I had the opportunity to take the wheels off*



Although I'd already decontaminated them once when they were on the car, as I wanted to seal them, I gave them another thorough clean and decontamination.

Same procedure as before

Relentless wheel cleaner first





Followed by Bleed





Then Dissolve, small stickers removed from inside of wheels at this point as well.



Wheels then dried off with Metro Sidekick Blaster to ensure they were completely dry.



Wiped down with CarPro Eraser to make sure surface as clean as possible and free from any grease etc.



Sealed inside and out with Gtechniq C5









Finally, tyres dressed with Eclipse Tyre Gel





Arches, hubs etc. cleaned with Diversity





Metal suspension parts etc.all treated to a coating of ACF-50





Brembo callipers and hubs sealed with Gtechniq C5











Wheels back on and torqued to correct settings



Finished!

Thanks for looking!

Brilliant looking car mate.

I am a rs fan. Had a 172 cup, 182 cup, then a 225 megane cup and finally a 250. It was in black. Lovely cars. Just to small for the family, so it was a s4 advant for me!!!

I was disappointed to miss the clio trophy but I remember looking to change my 3week old 172 cup, and he wanted me to take a 3.5k loss.....

Back to yours. What's the main difference between your new and old??

Andy

That looks real nice. That is a great shine.

The hubs already showing signs of rust. My 1 year old looks worse and I hate it. Maybe a coat of copper slip might keep it at bay?

Why say the wheel nuts are torqued to the correct setting? Why not tell us what the figure is as to be helpful to other please? Cheers.

Thanks for taking the time to do the write-up.
