Got a handful of snaps at the weekend on my first leisurely drive with a mate in his Golf GTI. Stopped for a Costa in the glorious Suffolk sunshine











Looking forward to doing my first proper clean. Possibly this Saturday afternoon but not sure yet. Once clean I will get a proper set of photos!

Another very small update. LED number plate bulbs. This is one of my favourite cheap modifications to do to any car.

Before



Halfway



Finished



Will try and get out there tonight once it gets darkish and get some better photos as they never look very good in daylight anyway!

K&N panel filter also fitted last night although no photos were taken as we all know what they look like. Please with a bit more of a growl from the intake on acceleration now

A mate of mine who is a mechanic drilled lots of holes in my M2s air box to give a lot of extra airflow in conjunction with my K&N air filter, it made a massive difference. I can highly recommended you doing the same with your Megane, you won't be disappointed.

Welcome to the Megane. 250 club. Brilliant cars, I've had mine over a year now and still love it. RSmegane is a good forum to join.

Nothing major to post as expected. Had a nice weekend away with the wife and car. Managed to get a couple of nice photos.





But most importantly and what I expect to be my favourite modifications for quite some time, I have purchased a silencer delete pipe



I know as soon as it arrives I will be itching to install!
