Hello & RS Megane Q's

Hi, Im new to this Forum & Renaults and need some advise. Due to petrol costs and my changes by my employer, I am having to sell my wonderfull Elise

Im currently doing a 40 mile a day commute on motorway and duel carrageway, which is a complete waste of my car, especially when you consider head/cams/pistons/ITB's 190BHP Kseries.

So Diesel time is here and I'm looking at either the Renault sport Megane 175 or Seat Ibiza Cupra Tdi. Not driven the Megane yet but seems to be the front runner as the Seat while quick has no feel/feedback.

So I will be looking for a three door with the Cup chassis as handling is paramount to me. (previous cars include Group N 106 Rallye & Honda Integra Type-R to give you an idea) This were I'm getting confused.

Were cars available with Lux and Cup packs?
If they were did the Lux option remove the Anthercite wheels & wing mirrors? (some cars have the squat stance I've read about but no extra colour)
Are there any tags or stamp anywhere on the car to show Cup upgrades from the factory?
Are the Cup chassis options just suspension & TC, or is their a actual structual difference?
Can the Cup upgrades be retro fitted and how much?

Any clear info on the Cup, Lux & Recaro upgrades
greatly appreciated!
