Your car has 4 CV joints,one on either end of each driveshaft.The inner one connects to the gearbox and the outer one connects to the hub where the wheel bolts on.On some cars you can change the joints and re-use the driveshaft,others you have to replace the complete assembly.
It seems to be quite a common fault on Megane Coupes.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
