    Default New Member from Perth

    I'd just like to introduce myself, I'm Steve and I currently live near Rockingham WA. I'm a new owner of a gen 1 MPS 3 although I've yet to pay for it. It was previously owned by my cousin but she's just upgraded to a gen 2 so when she offered it to me at a great price I couldn't refuse. Anyway I'm still sorting out my sponsorship visa as I've not long moved here from the UK so it will be another couple of weeks before I'm driving it. I have to walk past it everyday as it's sat on the driveway not moving until I can sort out the finances.

    Here's a quick phone pic I took. It's standard apart from the window tint as far as I'm aware.



    For anyone that's interested I used to own a Renaultsport Clio 172 Cup.

    Hey mate welcome, nice clean example of a gen1 there! Hopping out of one rocket into another one, nice work! Looking forward to hearing more from you once the transaction is complete

    Not quite, I've been rolling around in a Ford Telstar for a few months now. It'll make the transition that much sweeter though I guess.

    Yep, my cousin took great pride in looking after it.

    Welcome mate. Glad you got your access all sorted. Good looking car, bet you're gagging just to take it for a 5 min spin.

    There is something I'm not sure is standard actually. I noticed there's a little gadget to the right hand side of the steering wheel on the lower dash which has air/fuel ratio written on it, it's a digital display and has a little knob to the side but it wasn't displaying anything. Is this standard?

    I know what it is now. It's an Apexi turbo timer which also displays A/F ratio, battery voltage and O2 sensor voltage, is this definitely not standard?

    It's caught me out a couple of times now, I like to leave the car in gear, as you can imagine it's ended up stalling because I've not realised the engine is still running.

    Nah not standard, When I got my timer put in, like yourself I like to keep it in gear. Not anymore though
