Hi

I'm excited to be picking up my new Wind tomorrow morning, so looking forward to asking lots of questions when I get it. 61 plate in Black, GT line 1.6. I'm from a village near Doncaster, so no doubt a certain administrator will be waving madly at me when she sees me driving by in Doncaster ...   Smile

Some jobs to get my spanners out and do later in the year as the service history isn't very clear.


  • Rear parking sensors
  • Timing belt and water pump
  • pollen filter
  • spark plugs
  • oil change


I haven't worked out how to put any photos on yet.

Great site for information.

Andy

Thanks

I have been looking at and went to see some others (Merc SLK, BMW Z4, MX5s but they all had issues mainly rust and I didn't think much to them). My son who works for the Renault F1 team suggested a Wind. Had a drive in the nearest one for sale and decided straight away I wanted it. Funnily enough never really thought of trying one, wish I had done it sooner.

I just got rid of a 66 plate 208 GTI as I fell out of love with it...

FYI, my wife is banning me going out in the Wind with all my Renault F1 freebies on (T shirt/hat/glasses) as she says I will look too much like a Wally (or words to that effect)..  Very Happy

Welcome on board neighbour it will be great to see you out and about. Graham and I both have Renault F1 jackets just adds to the amusement when we are out.

There is another blue one not far from where you work my Spotters have seen it thinking it was me waved like mad.

Hi Barbs...my wife expressly forbids us to go out in matching kit...I'm quite envious of the two of you posing in your Renault F1 jackets !!

They have different sponsors so only the Renault badge matches.

HI,

Welcome to the forum.

The GT Line is definitely the best spec & the 1.6 engine loves to rev!!

Mine has reverse sensors which I thought were standard on the GT Line.

Ours is not pampered being a daily driver & our holiday transport for trips across Europe.

I'm not exactly well matched with kit as my baseball cap has MG on it from my previous car; a TF160; & on our trips down to the Med I wear a fedora when posing top down in the sunshine!!!!!!!!!!!!

ENJOY!

A Fedora !!...you're a class act Pittstop !!!
I only chose to wear from a collection of (tasteful)) baseball caps...essential to protect my forehead from a scorching in the sun !!!.....wouldn't be so bad if I had much hair !!!😂

I have a favour to ask. I have purchased reverse sensors to fit. Would you be able to send over a picture to see where the official ones are fitted on the bumper? 
Many thanks

Hi Andy,

Looked at pics Barbs put on separate thread & my sensors; which I am 99% sure came with the car as new; are in a different place. Mine outer ones seem to be further out & all sensors are on blue area not black area..

Pittstop's are the factory fitted positioning rather than the ones put up in the other post. If you remove the bumper there are predrilled markings on the inside for the sensors and they are as shiwn by pittstop.

Thanks all. I'm off on holiday tomorrow so will be a job for next month.

I appreciate all the help.
