    Does anyone know if the Megane GT's is a wet clutch Getrag unit?

    Really? Maybe you're doing it wrong?

    182 Clio Cup - Needs mods!

    I'd be almost tempted to suggest none at all to maintain the value and use it as transport. A stock Clio II is becoming rarer and more desirable. Otherwise the first question is what are you planning to use it for?

    Megane Iv Gt

    I've been considering something similar and did have a drive a while back. Definitely worth a try, ideally a longer appraisal. For me ride/body control, engine and gearbox were superb but cabin design and finishes not quite to class standards and hated the seats/driving position. Undecided re the 4WS too. Perhaps that, and the seating, would make more sense on a lengthy drive.

    Another Frb182

    The previous owner worked at Trutrack in Melbourne and fitted Eibach Sportlines and custom made Konis with a plate welded on and the different bolt spacing drilled. It has solid top mounts with extra camber and castor plus upgraded engine mounts so NVH is increased but the ride is acceptably compliant and nicely controlled plus it's good to have the easy adjustability to fettle balance or tighten things up for track/motorkhana.

    Megane Rs250 Or Ford Fiesta St

    When I drove the Fiesta I thought it was awesome but pretty firm, and from what I recall of the Meg, it's possibly a better bet as a daily in that regard. Fiesta's seats are cosy whereas you can always go non-Recaro in the Meg. TBH I'd have a hard time choosing between these two as both are tremendous fun and durable bargains. Anyway, sit tight as there are a few on here with much more experience with both that I that might chime in.

    New In Town And Nowhere To Rest My Arm...

    Well yes...no hiding here...time for a new avatar? Only thing that annoys me with my German manual hatch is dodging the centre armrest.
