Megane Coupé 1.6i

Seeing as we have a Non-Honda section now thought I'd start a thread as well

Basically my CTR was costing me too much money in petrol (£70 was getting me 200 miles) due to me using it for commuting too and from work in London. So unfortunately in August last year, after a year of ownership, I had to Part Ex the CTR in for something more economical which happened to be a Megane Coupé although unfortunately not the RS like Wanners lol

Now I know everyone here is rocking high powered replacements when they have part ex'd their CTR lol but mine is a 1.6 VVT engine in a car that weighs about the same as the Civic. Acceleration is slow to say the least 0-60 is about 10.5 secs and a top speed of about 120mph (Although god knows how long it would take to get there ha ha!)

As an average at the moment im getting about 380 miles to a tank of fuel and MPG is a real 30-ish mpg around town and long haul trips have shown around 40mpg. Current average since ownership on Spritmonitor.de is showing 29.7mpg.

I'd love a higher performance car but commuting to work by car is dictating that i drive something economical booooo! ha ha!

Below is some pics of my car after I had picked it up. Looking to get a couple of things order this month now I have been payed such as New Number plates as im off to France in June and also some Wind Deflectors which I have been pro-crastinating about forever. Also thinking about getting the lower part of the rear bumper colour coded as well as I think it would make the rear of the car look complete
