My Megane (February update)

Postby Anthony » Tue May 31, 2011 2:44 pm

Hi all,

I've been around on this site for a couple of years now but I have never bothered to post pics and specs of my car. Well I have finally decided to pull my finger out. So here are some pics-

I bought the car around this time 2 years ago on slightly under 18000 miles. It has just today reached 42000 :)

It was completely standard when I got it. Here are the modifications I have made to it.

Engine
ITG panel filter
RS Tuning ecu remap taking it to 120bhp & 285Nm
Sebring exhaust
Filtermag

Exterior
Colour coded bumper trim and side strips
20% tint on rear 3 windows
Phase 2 rear lights conversion
Aero wipers
'Carbon fibre' wrapped B pillar trims
Modus short aerial
Front mudflaps
De-badged rear
Halfords all-weather headlight bulbs
Silvatec indicator bulbs
White LED reg plate bulbs
Pressed aluminium plates

Interior
Renaultsport Megane 225 half leather seating
Auto-dipping rear view mirror
White LED lighting
PG Tips monkey ;)

ICE
Alpine CDE-113BT head unit
Connects2 adapter
Pioneer components upfront
EDGE tri-axial rear speakers
EDGE 10 inch subwoofer

Wheels & tyres
18x8 inch Team Dynamics 1.2's in gloss black
225/40ZR18 Falken FK452 rubber
20mm Eibach spacers all round

Suspension and brakes
V-Maxx coilover suspension wound all the way down
Brembo MAX front discs coupled with Black Diamond pads
Calipers painted silver

I have done all the work on it myself excluding the paintwork which my cousin sorted for me and the remap obviously.

It is almost now at a stage where I am happy with it. The paint could do with some correction but I think that's just me being fussy! It is a daily driver afterall. I do have more plans for the car such as a decat and maybe a GT rear spoiler.

So what do you think? All comments welcome :)

Ta,
Ant

It's a thing of beauty!

So here's mine. No mods, standard car, just as it left the factory in Nov 2005.

I'd just given her a bath when I saw your post and thought "this is as good as she 's going to get!"

Oh, only just remembered, my only mod (if you can call it that) was chromed indicator bulbs, it took me 5 years to get around to removing dealer stickers from rear window for gods sake.

Next on my list is an uprated clutch kit and probably a new DMF to go with it.

that is a mint looking car.

Um where did you get the spacers from, my wheels are 18"x 8" also and could be done with the spacers. Your car has a great stance.
