Hi all.

I've owned a VTS for quite a number of years now. Looking to get rid and change it up for an r26 megane sport. Always wanted one for a while now.

Looking for any advise with buying one basically... /If anyone knows anyone selling a good reliable one thats had important work somewhat recently done.

My mate told me with the r26 hub bearings, window regulators being some of the key things to look out for. Then the cambelt/turbo/clutch stuff which goes without saying.

Basically any tips/further suggestions anyone has, fully welcomed please and thanks.

Good choice! Smile

The hub bearings are best checked with the mechanic, window regulators - you don't want any grinding noise when they spool up or down, check the idle is not too rough (might indicate clogged injectors), otherwise it's the usual wear and tear (and the belts/water pump, of course).

Here are some buying guides:

Thanks!

Despite the shape being unpopular to many, I think it's aesthetically pleasing!

Thanks for the useful information, and the guide links Smile I'll expect to pick one up in the coming few months. Will post updates/pics of it to get warmed to the forum (and no doubt questions later down the line lol).

Cheers Smile
