Well after placing my order in November ITS FINALLY HERE!!!
Well I have to say I'M IN LOVE!!
Took it down to work (Sutherland) this morning to get X Pack put on (Paint, fabric and dash protection), so I decided to go for a run through the National Park.
JESUS! This thing sticks to the road like ***** to a blanket. I used to think I could get through there pretty quick in the SRiT but boy does this thing corner. At one stage I glanced down at my speedo and realised I better back off because if MR Plod came the other way I would be a goner!
The Astra required you to work it quite hard and needed alot of effort, but this is just so easy and begs for more (which I was happy to give). This really feels like cornering for dummies! I love that the more you push it the more it rewards you. Everything from the throttle feel to the way it corners and the beautiful steering have simply blown me away.
I'm equally impressed by the ride. Where the Astra would start crashing across rough surfaces, the Megane is much more compliant.
I'm still coming to terms with the way some interior controls work as they are not as immediately intuitive as in say a Golf. And the rearward vision isn't great, although I'm used to this from the Astra.
I must say, this isn't a car for shy retiring types. So many people stop and stare, or give thumbs up ect. Amazing. (Kinda glad I didn't get yellow, otherwise it would be waaay worse LOL)
Right now I'm off to remove the dealer sticker from the back window and replace it with the OzRenaultSport one
Now some pics ;-)
