I've had the new Megane for 2 weeks come tomorrow afternoon and I'm still enjoying it! The car's now covered 348 miles and cost quite a bit in fuel. Its currently averaging 24.1 miles per gallon, which is much better than the Turbo VTS, so its not all bad! Just a pity fuel is so expensive... £1.07 per litre I paid this afternoon!

The engine is pretty fruity and muchos fun when the turbo kicks, but if I'm honest, I'm getting a little too used to it already RS Tuning do a nice little ECU upgrade for about £400, which puts the power upto approx. 260bhp, which is nice I'll have to get the engine run in properly before I think about playing though... won't I?

I gave the Megane a quick wash this morning.. it's first wash! Its obvious its not got any wax on it, so that needs sorting asap! I even found time to give the VTR a quick rinse. God knows what I'm gonna do with that... any takers?

Some of the Megane guys say they look like a Storm Trooper in white. LOL. Here's a few new pics:

    Wow simo I really do love your megane. The renault sport meganes look really quite good, I've only seen two round my way-a black and a yellow one. And since Renault world series last year me and my mate have been craving to see a nicely modified one

    Let the engine settle down first matey, you probably want to be the first to get this specific part (ecu remap, rollcage etc.) but It looks gorgeous at the moment.

    First of all, my first blog post.

    Nice car Simo, looks really nice. 24mpg is roughly what my old 2.0 Focus was doing...

    Very, very lush choice dude

    I would probably have gone for the 197 cup with a few extras but you cant argue with the Megane tbh.

    Looks lovely and they are quite quick to boot tbf.
    Any snaps of the interior and engine bay?
