One main critisism I have of it is that Ford have gone down the route of many other manufacturers these days and fitted rock hard seats.If you want comfort,then definately go for the Megane.....I was glad to get back into my Lag after a long journey in the Fucarse the other day.
Lag seats are great, aren't they... I really don't think I've ever been in another car with seats as comfy as the fronts in my Lag!

It depends on which model of Focus, the Zetec seats are considerably firmer than the Lx, Like every other car you really need to try several models in the range before you buy

When looking round last year for a new car we looked at the focus , it was a nice car but the price was 3 k more than the megan we got , and the cabin felt a little closed in if you get what i mean.
Ive had the megan for around 10 months now and it has been a pleasure to drive ( so it should being new when we bought it) up to now cant fault it lots of kit for the cash and looks good to in my opinion.
Its a case of horses for courses as it wont suit everyone , but as long as your happy with the decission, enjoy

At Last Job Done!

After much soul searching I've ordered this

about this colour.

In Wolves and our immediate area they only had metallic silver in the 1600cc, I hate any variation of metallic silver with a vengeance. They look like they've been aluminium painted to me, I wanted quartz, but was told they couldn't get one, I said I don't want one then. While out and about today Renault foned and said they've found one at a dealer down south it's being transported up to retain the delivery mileage.
I'm away on hols next week, thank , because I've presently got a tank full of diesel in the lag I'm picking the new one up next Monday.
Thank you guys for the input which some of you will feel I've ignored.
