After having my Clio for a year (£30 tax and 60mpg constant) I wanted to go back to something bigger and with a bit more power, so i decided to stick with French (Booooo!) and get its bigger sibling.

Very rare Renaultsport Megane 175 LUX (apparently only 300 in the UK).

Its got most of the option boxes ticked (inc spare wheel), Glass opening roof, 18inch wheels, keyless entry & go, Cruise control, Speed limiter etc...

Shares everything but the engine with the petrol one, so the same Bembos and whatever they call 'revo-knuckle' suspension.

 

Very fun to drive, reasonable insurance, and around 40mpg :pancake:

 

Plans....

Fit the rear F1 decal, then either sell her, or if i keep her go for the Ktec STG3 Remap and FAP removal (quoted figues are around 220bhp & 350ft lbs).

I always liked these, always see blue ones here though....whats that by die head rest ?

 

Looks like a camera mount!

 

I hated these when the first came out (I also hated the focus, though) but as time goes by, I'm beginning to quite like them!

 

Did someone really tick speed limiter as an option, though? :mellow:

I think all the sports came with the limiter, its on all the cars that have the cruise control, its dead handy too, I always use it in roadworks, School areas etc so you dont have to keep an eye on your speed and can have all your attention on the road :)

 

And aye, its my camera mount :)

Ahhh, I thought you meant a top speed fixed limiter, like M3's etc @ 155...

 

What does it go like ?

Stink, probably! :lol:

Thanks for the comments :)

 

It goes pretty well, i think standard its about 220ftlbs, 6 speed so can sit just shy of the 140 mark, its not bad for a derv, its a shame they didn't sell enough to continue it into the new shape, but it is quite exclusive - thats why i like it.

 

Dont worry Mark, ive still got 2 Escorts, though i'd like to get down to one of them :pancake:

 

Tricky - My local Renault never knew either :wall:
