Re: driving experience megane 3 hatch
megane III coupe diesel 5 speed.
Gearchange was notchy for the first 3000-4000 miles.
The torgue was such tho all u have to do is engage first let the clutch out slowly,without using the accelerator, even on a steep hill and off it goes.
Change up to 2nd arrives fairly rapidly.
My wheel diameter is now 5% larger,so the gearing is 5% higher. The gearbox has been run in and is now silky smooth.
Ist gear is still necessary tho cos at anything below 1200 pm it doesnt accelerate much at all even for a diesel.
Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
