Re: Megane 3. Good or bad?

Hard to say on choices :

Meg3 coupe for me was the best value on appearance perf and size at the time.For example vw range appearance wize a scirroco was too expensive,similar spec golf too expensive even a polo with a yuk 3cyl diesel was more expensive.
No complaints really,but with intial heavy discounting,the resale prices dont hold up,once again thats in comparrison to initial list price.

Tce engines are supposed to be good but Ive never driven one.1.5 diesel is adequate.

The others you mention look ok too ,but are kinda derivative of the meg 3 shape.7 year guarantee on one of those?

On meg 3 age .Its over halfway thru its life cycle by now2012 facelift and it was based on the meg II platform from new.
So in 2 years time 2008-2016 there may be a meg IV out,with a subsequent resale /older shape value drop.
btw auris looks ok too no really not just sucking up! If youd bought a Yaris tho mate..Id just have said grats on the new car !

Just something to consider.

Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
