erm...... it seemed better than my 1.4 V reg Almera.. and it is, when it works, but I have to find daft tools and cut my hands trying to fix it.

Mixed blessing really.

Best advice for Megane owners: sell it before it bankrupts you!

3. Smells nice although it is a diesel.
4. Cannot be heard although it is a diesel.
5. Never lets me bother with the rain on the windscreen.
6. Keeps my bottom warm early in the morning.
7. Doesn't leave my back in S position when I'm done with 24h trip.
8. Corners.
9. Accelerates.
10. Brakes.
11. Consumes less fuel than 1.5L Honda Civic. :)

3: The fact that I never need to touch the Renault card (Hands Free)
4: Auto lights/ wipers
5: Way more character than anything else in it's class
6: 5 star NCAP...8 airbags!
7: Automatic Climate Control is fantastic
8: It's very french (not always a bad thing)
9: Massive depreciation ( bought mine used)
10: THE ASS

It is a remarkable paradox when abstraction results in refinement. Paraphrase the question by truncating it, and the answer will become obvious. Why Do You Love?
