I thought the time limit for starting the engine was 1 min, that is what the megane is. It may be possible to change i guess if the ECU controls it and with the correct software and interface.

As for changing IR to RF i would guess it would be very complicated, especialy as a lot of parts are coded in and this would be difficuilt to get round.
You would also have to find a way round the imobiliser as they use different sysytems.

Just my view some one with better knowledge may know better.

Best bet would be to get an after market alarm that can be wired in to control the central locking and would be RF. The imobiliser is relatively easy to disable on the the IR models (so im told).
