    Hi everyone,

    I'm the proud owner of my 2006 Renault Megane Cup in Silver, I've owned it since July 2014 and other than pulling my hair out over maintenance cost, I absolutely love it!

    Anyway, the reason for the thread title is not long after I got my baby, I had my first crash on the day of my great Grandad's funeral.. Honestly one of the worst days of my life!

    So after a couple of months driving around without the money to fix it, with my head down and pride hurt I decided to take it off the road as I was spending every night taking my anger out on the roads of Leeds and spending a LOT of money on fuel!

    So nearly £1,000 later, and more in mods too such as intercooler, bov and seats (can't help myself), she is now fixed and waiting for insurance and it's off-side hub sorting out.

    I have many, many plans for this car so I'm sure there'll be a lot more to see on here this year.

    Hi @MichaelCalvin@MichaelCalvin, car looks great! You wouldn't know you had a little whoopsie in it now.

    A very sad day, when you crashed it, but you'll never forget your Grandad.

    Got another cheeky picture today, looking beautiful

    Further plans from now are;
    Drop it on cooksports
    R26r spoiler
    Refurb and spray alloys black OR
    get a new subtle set
    Dip all exterior plastics including grilles shiny black
    Engine wise need injectors and full 3" exhaust and decat then map. If I decide to forge then either 250 turbo or garret will be on the tables but that will be 2016 now I think

    Cheers for the welcome guys!

    @MichaelCalvin@MichaelCalvin you will struggle to get a Garrett to fit on the standard setup. Normally need a custom manifold and take offs for water / oil.
